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.
