Tt Esports Neptune Elite RGB
Elegantly understated, but fully-featured.
PRICE $ 99 • SUPPLIER THERMALTAKE www.ttesports.com
There is so much to like about this effort from Thermaltake’s esports gaming brand, but the one that puts all of them into perspective is its price - for a mechanical gaming keyboard, $100 is a steal. And for that, you get loads of premium features.
RGB lighting, of course, with a range of presets, include built in gaming ones that highlight important keys for different gaming genres; does having lit WASD keys make you a better shot in PUBG? Probably not, but it’s still cool. Even cooler are multimedia keys, a very tactile metal volume wheel, and a USB passthrough.
Sure, you’re not getting Cherry switches, but rather TTC ones, in either Blue or Brown varieties. They don’t feel as precise as Cherries, but in-game there’s nothing holding you back.
The only drawback is the all plastic, austere design of the board. It’s not as sturdy as some, but for the price? It’s hard to beat.
