Tt eSports Poseidon Z Forged Review

Closer Look

At the left hand side of the keyboard, we get 5 (T1-5) easy to access macro keys.

A further 5 extra macro keys (T6-10) are accessible on the right hand side.

The F keys act as media keys when used with the Fn button, these include Previous Track, Play/Pause, Next Track, Stop, Mute, Volume Down, Volume Up, Change Profile, Change Lighting Zone and Windows Key lock. Brightness control can be fount on the cursor keys.

The Kailh switches offer good bang for buck and the Poseidon Z Forged is available in Blue or Brown. These switches are made for Tt eSports with a slight modification (not too dissimilar as to what we have seen from Razer) and something worth noting is that the actuation point has been tuned to happen precisely when you hear/feel the click.

The underside offers various cable routing which could be used for your mouse or headset too.

The Poseidon Z Forged has a detachable cable, eventually I want to see this offered as a wired/wireless helping, but in the meantime a detachable cable has some conveniences and inconveniences to it. Considering the size of this keyboard, it is likely to be a static desktop type affair to which a detachable cable is not entirely needed but its not really anything to think twice about.

Being powered by a single USB cable, a dual port USB hub can kinda be confusing, especially as there is no clarity about compatibility or USB iteration in use. The integrated audio DAC is also powered by the same USB cable, though it is admittedly a fairly weak DAC aimed for use in games only, either way, there will be some that would be happy with the inclusion.

The Tt eSports Poseidon Z Forged complete with wrist rest.
