Usage & Final Thoughts
I have been using the Poseidon ZX for a few weeks now and I really like it. The form factor is not something I was sure I was going to like at first, but I have really grown to like it. It gives me quite a lot more room on my desk and allows for a larger area for my mouse. Also as I mentioned earlier in this review the smaller form factor makes it much easier to take with you to events and LAN parties.
The key switches that Tt eSPORTS uses are made by Kailh and are their blue switches. These switches feel great and have nice audible feedback when they are pressed. As I said I have been using this keyboard for 3 weeks non-stop for both gaming and writing reviews and I really enjoy how the key switches feel. It is also nice that Tt eSPORTS includes the key cap remover and a set of custom arrow and WASD keys. You can also purchase additional key caps if you like. I tested NKRO on the keyboard and it worked as advertised and right out of the box. This is another great thing about this keyboard is that it does not require any drivers, it works right out of the box. So I can take it anywhere and it is guaranteed to work. The build quality of the keyboard is great too, it is quite heavy and can take a beating.
Each key on this keyboard is individually backlit with a blue LED, which of course gamers are going to like. There are four different brightness levels that can be changed by using the brightness keys on the keyboard. Check out the video below to see the keyboard in action.
Tt eSPORTS markets this keyboard as budget-friendly, but it still keeps that quality that we have seen in other Tt eSPORTS gaming products. You do sacrifice some things like no macro keys, programmable lightning, a number pad and wrist rest, but at the end of the day no everyone needs or cares about those things. I think that Tt eSPORTS did a great job on this keyboard and it is one I would reccomend to anyone. Also you know it is a quality keyboard as Tt eSPORTS is backing it with a 5-year warranty. Right now you can pick up this keyboard for about $79.99 online and it is available in both blue and brown switch versions. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Tt eSPORTS Poseidon ZX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard a 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!
