Has flaws, but isn't bad for the price.

R. Pawliuk "DM", Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: It works for what a keyboard does, has fairly responsive key presses, the fan is barely noticable, the micro usb connection into the keyboard is flimsy and sometimes causes the keyboard to lose power if it wiggled, consequently if you plug it in and it doesn't turn on wiggle the cord a bit. I wouldn't buy another one, but it is not a bad keyboard in spite of a few flaws.

Good for gaming, but not much else

Thomas F., Newegg
19 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had this for a year - and while I didn't love it, it wasn't this bad at first. Time for a new keyboard.
  • Pros: Soft Keys, bright backlight, versitile key functionality
  • Cons: keys stick - while this hasn't been an issue for gaming, I can't even type an email without the keys sticking. Is the backlight supposed to change color? There is a multi-color indicator, but they keys remain red only. Don't really care about this, as it lights up. Frequently need to unplug and replug it, as it stops working. Not sure if that is the fault of the keyboard, but it happens on multiple USB ports.

Good Value

  • Summary: Not the highest quality keyboard, although for the price it is fair. Key-illumination is not bright enough. Mini-usb port on the keyboard disconnects sometimes. Low quality parts overall.

Loose powerline

Anonymous, Newegg
10 July 2013
  • Pros: Good for some macroing, good for the extra light, not extremely loud when typing
  • Cons: The power connection is one small line with a poorly designed structure which makes it fall out and wiggle very easily. I've tried taping it and cutting into the plastic to make it not move but still it causes me problems. Wouldn't recommend if you move very much.

Alright gaming keyboard

Donna S., Newegg
19 March 2013
  • Summary: I would choose a 3 1/2 eggs. Overall good product . I wouldn't spend 70$ though on it. Got it when it was on sale.
  • Pros: Looked pretty good online, heard good things about this keyboard.... Its alright nothing special. Nothing too pro about this that I should state. -2 USB ports intergrated in the keyboard. :D -Comes with a keyboard case and extra keys. -Keys are soft.
  • Cons: Enter bottom is a little sticky, not too much of a problem. Fan likes to turn off (to solve this you need to keep pushing down on the fan). LED's arnt as bright as you imagine. Theres the option of off, 25% which is like nothing. 75% is also like nothing. 100% is alright but could be brighter. The USB that connects into the keyboard is a pretty bad idea, tends to fall out quite often which gets annoying while gaming.

Good and bad

Andrew L., Newegg
12 November 2012
  • Summary: Seems to have odd power issues and certain keys for me began to stick(not mechanically) and spam their inputs. I tried to contact TT directly, but their technique was to ignore my request entirely. Sadly, they are the only game in town for this style of keyboard and I will be forced to buy another. At least NewEgg has a 50% off deal on the Ultimate today.
  • Pros: Nearly silent Good non mechanical for those who don't want mechanical Comfortable Fast Accurate Good aesthetics
  • Cons: Non existant customer server Keys started malfunctioning after 2 years USB ports work 80% of the time from sleep wakeup Keyboard randomly goes dead on sleep wakeup anywhere from 10 second to 2 minutes Garbage software

I like it...BUT!

G2W P., Newegg
6 November 2012
  • Summary: I would give this 4 eggs, but my shift key breaking straight down the middle, may indicate a poor design. Perhaps the key just had freak flaw. Love to get some feedback from Thermaltake.
  • Pros: Red keys are great, backlight, easy macros
  • Cons: half the macro keys are useless, 5 on the right and 5 on the left. My shift key split in half! - no i did not pound it, just normal use.

Ugh...

Kevin M., Newegg
30 September 2012
  • Summary: i was really wanting to like this keyboard when i got it and kinda like some of the features but the other numerous quirks just make it not worth the value
  • Pros: works fairly well lights are nice at night detachable cable a fan??
  • Cons: this keyboard was bought as a replacement for a Microsoft sidewinder x6 gaming keyboard that died and looked promising....... i wont go on a big sch-peal about all the things i don't like about it but i will mention my biggest beef with it: the software very slow and almost unresponsive at certain times and comes with little quirks like the volume control not working unless (for example on youtube), the video you are watching unless it is full screened.
