Tt eSPORTS, by Thermaltake, has recently released a new tenkeyless mechanical gaming keyboard – the Tt eSports POSEIDON ZX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It doesn’s have a numeric keypad making it easier to bring and carry around, specially during LPs or events. It doesn’t use the more popular Cherry MX switches, instead it features Tt eSPORTS Certified Mechanical switches, a.k.a Kailh blue switches, that are manufactured in China and is generally cheaper than Cherry MX Switches. Check out the rest of its features, specifications, price and availability below.
Tt eSports POSEIDON ZX Features
The Tt eSports POSEIDON ZX will come in Tt certified blue switches (Kailh Blue), with full LED backlighting, N-Key rollover via USB, dedicated key to disable windows key, accessible media keys, and adjustable brightness. It is fully plug-and-play, requiring no drivers and software.
The tenkeyless form factor is especially useful for gamers who could benefit from the extra space for mouse usage, in both gaming setups and LAN environments. It’s also easier to transport due to weight and size when compared to a full sized keyboard.
Tt eSPORTS spent two years testing various mechanical switches with its engineers and professional gamers. And eventually, we found the right one- with White-Ra, Team DK, Prime Team, as well as our other sponsored teams, and our keyboard engineers all agreeing unanimously. The first keyboard to offer these switches in mechanical blue & brown switch options was the POSEIDON Z Illuminated, and now Tt eSPORTS brings it to consumers in the POSEIDON ZX. The POSEIDON ZX offers users a budget friendly full featured mechanical gaming keyboard that could both be the perfect choice for a first time mechanical keyboard user as well as a mechanical keyboard enthusiast.
The testing process for these mechanical switches was an arduous one, but these switches passed and we believe in them so much that Tt eSPORTS is now offering the world’s first 5 year warranty for a mechanical gaming keyboard across the whole POSEIDON Z line which features the Tt certified switches.
