Excerpt: Oh…the keyboard. This peripheral can be one of the most overlooked and undervalued parts of any gamer’s rig. There are so many keyboard manufacturers’ out there, that there is a venerable cornucopia of keyboard options available to consumers today.
Conclusion: What the MEKA G1 Illuminated lacks in terms of bells and whistles some other mechanical gaming keyboards have it more than makes up for that with its build quality although I’m quite certain that this may not sound just as impressive to some people.
Summary: Final Thoughts
It looks like this keyboard has got me on the mechanical keyboard bandwagon. Going from laptop-style keyboard to a mechanical gaming keyboard took some time to get used to, but I do enjoy using this keyboard. The actual feel when typing a feedback of the keyboard is great.
Pros: – Solid design, – Backlit keys, – Black mechanical key switches, – Thick braided cable, – Goldplated connectors, – 2 port USB 2.0 hub and audio connections

Pros: It's Mechanical:, Media Keys:, Built-In USB Hub:, Audio Jacks:, Love For the Old School:

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—
