Tt eSPORTS MEKA G Unit Keyboard Review

👤by Richard Weatherstone Comments 📅01-12-11

The Tt eSPORTS MEKA G Unit makes for an interesting proposition. On paper it is the perfect combination of looks, performance and functionality however in testing we found some minor flaws which may or may not sway your buying decision.

The packaging is one of the best we have seen for the mechanical keyboard. From the exterior to the internals, The attention to detail was fantastic. I would have preferred to have seen a more detailed manual, especially for the included software. Perhaps a spare set of WSAD keys would have also been nice if I'm being picky as that have been included in two other keyboards we reviewed recently. The detachable cable is innovative if somewhat defunct. I fail to see the point of a detachable cable when it will always be in use. I can only assume it is for ease of replacement should it become damaged. The included faux velvet cable pouch was a nice touch but again, after removing the cable it has little use.

The keyboard itself is very good looking with contrasting flashes of red. Strange then that Tt eSPORTS elected to use white LED's instead of the obvious choice, red and these LED's were not used throughout the board, only on the keys that would be most used. The lighting is adjustable but in truth, the highest setting is hardly intrusive so a simple on/off switch would suffice in this area. Being picky I would also liked to have seen the feet raise the profile a little more but with the palm rest attached the ergonomics were more than adequate save for the Shift/enter keys which can become irritable after a few mistypes.

The performance of the keyboard is excellent for gaming as you would expect given the use of Cherry Black MX keys throughout. MMORPG gamers will be thrilled with the amount of macro keys available and for those gamers; this keyboard offers the perfect balance of durability, performance and functionality. It will suit FPS gamers too and is the equal of any other mechanical keyboard on the market at present. Those looking for a keyboard to do copious amounts of writing on may soon become frustrated though as not only are the cherry blacks not tactile but the actuation force coupled with the shift/enter keys may prove too much to handle.

Overall the keyboard does exactly what you would expect of it. It is clearly a gamer’s keyboard and to that end there are no major flaws. It is a solid performer, has some interesting features including macro capability and along with backlighting will doubtless make this keyboard a success. It doesn't score a 'flawless victory' but it comes pretty damn close and out of all of the keyboards we have tested thus far, it notches a win in almost every department. There are a few little niggles but those aside the Tt eSPORTS MEKA G Unit strikes a very good medium of all of the keyboards we have tested to date, taking features from each and carrying them out very well. Couple this with a very competitive price point and the keyboard becomes a very tempting prospect indeed. To that end, the Tt eSPORTS MEKA G Unit mechanical gaming keyboard strikes Vortez Gold.
