Thermaltake Ttesports MEKA G1 Illuminated Keyboard Review

 

Oh?the keyboard. This peripheral can be one of the most overlooked and undervalued parts of any gamer?s rig. There are so many keyboard manufacturers? out there, that there is a venerable cornucopia of keyboard options available to consumers today. In...

With the MEKA G1 out of the packaging, the first thought I had was ?you could seriously injure someone with this thing?. The keyboard is very weighted in the hands and has an extremely solid feel to the construction. It?s been a long time since I have...

Thermaltake Meka G1 Keyboard Review

 

Thermaltake released a robust keyboard model to handle several hours of intense gaming. See how the new peripheral performed under our test.

Robust keys ; Two audio connections and two USB ports ; Thick cable gathers the four wires from the keyboard

Doesn't feature programmable keys ; No backlighting ; Thick cable could be difficult to route ; USB/audio hub too close to the mouse ; Expensive

Thermaltake Meka G1 Mechanical Keyboard Review

 

With such a diverse market, will Thermaltake's mechanical keyboard stand out above the rest?

I've been using the Thermaltake Meka G1 for nearly a week now, and overall I'm very impressed with it. Typing on it feels amazing and my fingers seem to effortlessly glide over the keys. It feels easier to press down on the keys on the Meka G1 than the...

Thermaltake Meka G1 Gaming Keyboard Review

 

When it comes to considering parts for your next build or something good to upgrade to, normally people think of the latest CPU, video card or larger hard drive. But, one seldom considered upgrade are the peripherals that you use on a daily basis to...

Cherry black mechanical switches ; 1000MHz polling rate ; Onboard USB hub and audio jacks ; Powered hub with separate connection for flash drives ; Gold plated connectors ; Detachable palm rest ; Military grade cable protects and manages the inner...

No key back lighting ; Bulky cable makes routing difficult

I must say this keyboard is a beast but in a good way. It has a very solid build and makes typing and gaming on it a pleasure. The feedback on the keys makes hitting the right ones easier and alleviates mistakes or leaving you wondering if you actually...

Thermaltake Ttesports Meka G1 Illuminated

 

Thermaltake Ttesports Meka G1 Illuminated

Braided cable ; Long palm rest ; Backlighting is uniform across the keyboard ; Gold-plated connectors

Keys are not programmable ; Fn key is at a bad place

At about 11.5k, the Ttesports Meka G1 illuminated is a very expensive keyboard minus a few important features required on a gaming keyboard. Yes, it's a mechanical keyboard and we absolutely liked its build quality and simple yet functional design. But...

Consumer review by: Maddog (tigerdirect.com)

Excellent keyboard

 

I've had this keyboard for about a year, it's a great mechanical keyboard and very responsive to your key strokes. The key backlights has several different display variations (the only color that I found was red). The ports on the back are very...

Consumer review by: lilhasselhoffer (newegg.com)

If you're looking for a keyboard look no further.

 

I received this product to do a community review. I will be using this in place of my current keyboard. I cannot see how I got along without a decent mechanical keyboard. I would recommend this to friends looking for a new keyboard. The wire for the...

The keys are responsive to anything from a light touch to furious typing ; The keys are sized well, and make fat-fingering anything all but impossible. I haven't had half the spelling errors that I do with my laptop ; The USB hub, and...

The keyboard is difficult to clean inside. Modifying it so that a faceplate could be removed for cleaning would be appreciated ; The jacks are not labelled. Two USB connectors, and two audio jacks connect the keyboard to the computer. Knowing which USB...
