Thermaltake MEKA G-Unit Mechanical Keyboard Closer Look (The Software):
The software for the MEKA G-Unit is pretty simple. It's a one page design with nowhere to get lost in submenus or different pages – it's all in one place. There is a small pop up window that appears when you are creating macros but everything is right there behind it so you still feel safe. It's all pretty straight forward with setting options for one of the three profiles in the upper right corner. The other two "profile" options embedded in "Normal Mode" and "Gaming Mode" show up for change in the left corner below the MEKA G-Unit logo. The Macro key settings and lighting options can be adjusted on the right side of the software page and as I mentioned before the Macro Key tab brings up a secondary window over everything (second picture). It's all there and pretty straight forward.
I will mention that unless you are going to use macros (which is likely a reason you chose this keyboard) don't install the software. It's a bit buggy to say the least and their uninstaller for lack of a nicer way of saying it just simply does not work. You get stuck with a broken driver/software package installed and can't uninstall it. Safe Mode is your best friend then; if you are lucky you'll get it to properly install the second round and it'll just magically work! However, the sound and USB ports work fine without the drivers – so really the software is for macros and profiles. (Unfortunately that's probably the main reason you would buy this). Really it seems to be a roll of the dice in whether or not the software will install correctly first time. So once it's good – it's actually not too bad.
