Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TT ESPORTS MEKA G1 KB-MEG005UK Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (Accessory)I purchased this keyboard not that long ago, I was reading up on mechanical keyboards and decided on this one. This keyboard uses cherry black switches, if you aren;t sure on what that means, then I suggest you read up on that and the other switch types. as there are a few. But anyway, this keyboard uses the cherry black type, this is the first mechanical keyboard I bought, so I don't know what the other switch types feel or sound like, yes there are some google vids that do compare the sounds, but I don't think they are a good indication, as people will have different speaker setups and volumes. What I can tell you is, while using the keyboard might be a little noisy, but not that noisy, it depends on how far down you press the keys
Oh yes, the keyboard came as the UK layout, which I think is a far better layout then the US one, as this includes the large enter key, and the other differences. While the keyboard may not be classed as a gaming keyboard, as it has no macro keys like the razor blackwidow, nor does it have back lighting, but if you want a nice responsive keyboard, this is it. oh yes, something else that I think I should mention, there is no left windows key on this keyboard, as it gets replaced by a media key, which once placed allows you to use the F keys to control media players. But for me, I'm not a big fan of the windows key anyway, especially for gaming, as the key can easy be tapped. so the removal one one windows key doesn't bother me, but if if you need this key (there is a windows key on the right side of the keyboard, besides the Alt Gr key, but if you need the left one, then I suggest you look at another keyboard
the other nice thing is, the spacebar is very nice to press to, as pressing the spacebar, to the extreme left or right gets a good response as pressing it in the middle.
Oh yes, the palm rest, I would certainly use,the keyboard itself iis fairly high, so having the palm rest does help a lot, but I wouldn't really remove it and re attach it, it's just plastic and could get damaged or the plastic prongs could snap, so I highly recommend keeping it on.
Now for the military grade wire, its pretty thick, and fairly heavy, and not very movable, but for me this isn't much of a problem, but for some users it might be, but I not had any issues with the weight of the cable moving the PS/2 adaptor out, (and by the way, while it does have a default USB port, I highly suggest using the provided adaptor, as using it in the PS/2 port will allow more keys to be recognised by the computer, if you use it with the USB, it will detect up to 6 keys max. but anyway, I have it set to my PS/2 port and not had any issues with keys not been detected.
one more point, this keyboard is heavy, so I wouldn't want this on your legs, have it on a desk.
Can't think what else to really add about the keyboard. I really like it, and while I did look at a few mechanical keyboards, I choose this one and really glad I did. so can't think what else to say about it. I use it for some typing and gaming, but Im not a pro typer, if you were, you probably want to use a keyboard that uses blue cherry switches. but I like the feel of the keys and I have no trouble typing long periods of time with this keyboard. but certainly for gaming, its really responsive and this is where a mechanical keyboard truly shines
while the price is expensive, but I will never go back to a normal keyboard, my days of using them are over. once you make the switch, you will never lok back, as there is a massive difference in using the two types
I think I will end this review here
