Thermaltake doesn’t just make PC cases, they also have a comprehensive range of gaming peripherals for serious gamers, flying under the Tt eSPORTS lab …

As someone who doesn’t own an exclusive gaming machine, I cannot ignore the discomfort Cherry black keyboards cause my poor fingers after long typing sessions. A keyboard is not something that you could easily hot swap like a mouse, mousepad, or headphones;a keyboard is almost as permanent a fixture at your PC battle-station as your table is.
So, while I like how the MEKA G1 has dropped the ridiculous accidental finger catching G-hotkeys I would think overall comfort is far more desirable than the first two hours of using one of these keyboards. However, if you’re after a Cherry black, then this one looks like it checks all the right boxes… Looking forward to more reviews before I decide on which keyboard to switch to!Apr 7, 2012 at 4:57pm #2173
Nice review =PApr 7, 2012 at 5:53pm #2174
Interesting point about the laser etched lettering. For me that’s the clincher right there.
My SS 7G is missing bits and pieces of letters, which isn’t a problem for me, but for others who use the PC, it can be very frustrating. Great innovation.Apr 7, 2012 at 6:02pm #2176
Actually, that was an inaccuracy. The keys are pad printed, not laser etched as originally believed. I have amended the review accordingly.Apr 7, 2012 at 9:14pm #2182
Oh, here I was getting all excited :/Apr 8, 2012 at 12:25pm #2184
Great review! Eagerly awaiting the rest of them so I can choose my first mechanical keyboardApr 8, 2012 at 4:51pm #2205
Review format updated with more information. Jim: stay tuned for the forthcoming Corsair reviews. Both do in fact have laser etched keys.Apr 9, 2012 at 12:11am #2230
Nice review Rec, Looking forward to the Corsair reviews as I do find the G keys use full on my current G19. My rubber dome’s are starting to loose their feedback and not having easy access to test mechanical keyboards (most I would have to order online) I find these reviews very helpful
You may make me spend some money soon! haha.
Are there plans to conduct reviews on mice? Personally these may be even harder for me to buy online as I find getting the right grip in the hand to be a vital part of the purchase.Apr 9, 2012 at 12:19am #2231
We do plan on reviewing mice as well. We’re hoping to start with a few “perfect sensor” options, such as the Logitech G400 PID LZ1333, CM Storm Spawn and Razer DeathAdder 3.5G.
From there we’ll move onto some great mice with minor issues. We’ll also be reviewing some mouse pads, starting with a selection of hard pads. Down the track we’ll have a look at some softs as well.
