Thermaltake Poseidon Z RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

Thermaltake Poseidon Z RGB Mechanical Gaming KeyboardWhen it comes down to mechanical keyboards, there are a lot of options to choose from. Keyboards range from a plain mechanical-only keyboard all the way to keyboards with RGB LED lighting, multiple macro keys, USB ports, and audio ports. Switch options vary as well.  Most mechanical keyboards feature either Cherry MX or Kailh switches however, OMRON, and Razer (Manufactured by Kailh for Razer) are gaining traction. Mechanical keyboards offer a longer lifespan than membrane keyboards and mechanical keyboards tend to offer 100% rollover without the need for additional software. The Thermaltake Poseidon Z RGB keyboard comes in two flavors, one with blue switches and the other with brown switches. The keyboard features per key RGB LEDs, N-Key rollover, and the ability to record 102 macros in five profiles.
