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
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.
