The TT eSports Poseidon Z arrives in a very compact box with no wasted packaging. The box pretty much only fits the keyboard inside, though you will also find a quick-start guide and warranty info.
The keyboard isn’t overly flashy like some of the other gaming keyboards we have tested. The design is simple and doesn’t immediately scream ‘gamer’, this could easily be mistaken for a regular office keyboard- which isn’t a bad thing.
Unfortunately, there is no USB or audio passthrough to be found on this keyboard, a feature that I personally value when it comes to mechanical keyboards. Its not a deal breaker but it would have made a nice addition.
On the underside of the keyboard you will find a cable management groove, along with the standard rubber feet.
This ThermalTake keyboard does not come with any gaming specific features such as extra macro buttons or media keys. Not a deal breaker for some.
Here you can see the brown Kailh switches, they use the same cross-head design as Cherry MX keys so you should be able to find replacement keycaps if you ever need them. Each key is also individually backlit.
There are no premium build materials here, the Poseidon Z is built entirely from plastic. However, the build feels sturdy enough to last. Now let’s move on to the testing phase…
