Reviews and Problems with Thermaltake eSports MEKA G1
Showing 1-10 of 10
TTeSports MEKA, MEKA G1 and MEKA G-unit
16 July 2012
Conclusion: We've recently done quite a few mechanical keyboard reviews, and this time we put three more keyboards under the magnifying glass. The three Tt eSPORTS models turned out to be very similar in some ways, but also significantly differ in others. All of the three models pack the same Cherry MX Black-switches and offer a two-port USB-hub. On the other hand none of the boards offers full backlight or NKRO over USB.
Conclusion: Any of these four options is a fine choice if you’re looking for a mechanical keyboard. But if you’re primarily interested in gaming performance and the most features for the money, the Thermaltake eSports Meka G1 certainly makes a good case for itself. We just wish all mechanical keyboards were priced closer to $50 than $100. As professional writers and editors who also like to game, we think they’re worth the price.
Pros: Quick-response mechanical keys, Sturdy construction, Onboard USB and audio jacks
Cons: No dedicated media keys, Key switches feel squishy versus "clicky" mechanical keyboards—
though some gamers will prefer this
Conclusion: In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the Thermaltake MEKA G1 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard a rating out of 10. A high or low score does not necessarily mean that it is better or worse than a similar gaming keyboard that has been reviewed by another writer here at Benchmark Reviews, which may have got a higher or...
Pros: Cherry Black MX mechanical switches, Tactile and audible feedback, Detachable palm rest, Two USB 2.0 ports, Minimal looks is just right, Heavyweight build quality, Superior anti-ghosting ability, Media function key replaces windows key FTW
Cons: Lock status LED's are way too bright, Full anti-ghosting only works with USB to PS/2 adapter
Conclusion: The Thermaltake eSports Meka G1 has demonstrated outstanding performance in both gaming and typing. While Cherry MX Black Switches do not provide an additional tactile response, the sensitivity of the keys and super fast actuation rate make this keyboard a top choice for any gamer. The level of comfort that this keyboard provides clearly supports this statement.
Pros: 1000 Hz polling provides instateneous response, Military grade cable allows for the simple cable management, Audio In/Out as well 2x USB 2.0 cables on the keyboard allow for the easy connection with external devices, Cylindrical key shape and armrest provide comfortable experience even over extended periods of time.
Excerpt: Thermaltake’s Meka G1, part of its Tt eSports line, is almost as fancy as the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Stealth. It’s quieter, perhaps due in part to the use of Cherry Black switches, which are similar to the Brown switches in the Razer keyboard but without the tactile half-press resistance.
Excerpt: Thermaltake hat das Sortiment seines Tt-eSports-Label um eine Tastatur mit dem Namen Meka G1 erweitert. Das mechanische Keyboard soll selbst extremen Beanspruchungen standhalten und eine hohe Lebensdauer besitzen.
