The keyboard market has changed drastically over the past year with the introduction of mainstream mechanical keys and improved LED backlighting features. Where once the market was not that competitive and only a few major players were offering products we now have a wide variety of brands to choose from. This makes it hard to stand out in the market without adding extra features to your keyboards, which leads us to the Thermaltake Poseidon RGB. This particular keyboard has an integrated 32-bit processor which allows you to choose between 16.8 million colors for each key. The keys use Kailh Brown RGB switches, a less expensive clone of the Cherry MX Brown switches more commonly found on these types of boards. Find out if they are good enough over at Benchmark Reviews.
"Just a few months ago, full RGB mechanical keyboards were rare beasts, and the inclusion of full per-key RGB lighting commanded a very high price, with some keyboards selling for almost $200.00. Now, prices are coming down rapidly and vendors are starting to compete on features, but how many more features are there left to add?"
