Thermaltake MEKA G-Unit Mechanical Keyboard Conclusion:
Overall the MEKA G-Unit Red Switch Edition Mechanical Keyboard from Thermaltake's branch of ESPORTS gear was not too bad. I won't say it was one of my favorite keyboards that I've used but honestly that goes back to the fact that I hate Reds. This keyboard was designed specifically to cater to those of you who love the Cherry MX Reds – and that's just not me. That doesn't change the fact that this keyboard is built quite well and could kill a zombie in your gaming room without a struggle. It also doesn't change the unique "gaming" lighting patterns available – providing some lighting rather than none at all. The software wonkie-ness wasn't loved, but the fact that it eventually ultimately worked, was definitely in its favor. I did like the media key options in both actual keys (with the same red switches) for volume and lighting control as well as the secondary buttons for forward, play, and back. However, I wasn't as impressed with the gaming profiles and macro button options. This comes back to another personal usage issue as I really find no need for them in my style of play. They take up extra space and mostly go unused. So again – a lot of personal fails here; but I must keep reinforcing that me not liking them does NOT make them a fail. This keyboard has a lot of potential for sure – just not at my desk.
- Well built – zombie killer for sure.
- Mechanical switches – this version is obviously reds, but there are other G-Units!
- Built-in audio is LOUD!
- Price – little high for partially lit mechanical.
- Can't turn off the Thermaltake logo (red pulsing Tt)
