The gaming market has been thriving in 2011 thanks to a steady release of quality products from Razer, Steelseries and Thermaltake. Today we are looking at the new Tt eSPORTS MEKA G Unit Gaming Keyboard which is targeted at the FPS, RTS and MMORPG audience.
In a similar fashion to the MEKA keyboard which we reviewed in July, the MEKA G Unit is supplied with quality Cherry MX Black switches which deliver a ‘normal’ noise level and a life expectancy of over 50 million keystrokes.
Cherry Mechanical switches are some of the best available today and the Black switches have a travel distance of 3.6 mm. If you have never used a mechanical keyboard before then the changeover will be dramatic. The technology is superior to anything on the market.
The MEKA G Unit keyboard is supplied with 2 USB hubs to support other devices, and there is an advanced anti ghosting function, meaning that 46 keys can be pressed anywhere on the board without interference. It also features a 1000hz polling rate, which is ‘8’ times faster than a regular board. This is to improve problems with lag.
The keyboard has illuminated sections with brightness control, a large 64kb memory buffer for saving configurations from over 20 macro keys. With the Instant Switch System in place, gamers can access all 60 macro keys in one simple profile.
