Zalman Z-Machine ZM-K700M Introduction:
When it comes to gaming or even just normal every day work, a good keyboard is just as important as any other component of your computer system. I have seen way too many times friends go all out on their CPU, RAM, and thousand-dollar video cards, to only pick up a $15 keyboard because that was all their remaining "budget" would allow. Then they start screaming later when they are PWND in games because of slow response times or simply because they could not find the right keys.
A good mouse and keyboard is just as critical as the other parts of a computer build and should not be skimped. One name that has been synonymous with computer performance over the years has been Zalman. While typically known for its coolers and cases, today we are going to take a look at a keyboard offering: the Zalman Z-Machine ZM-K700M Gaming Keyboard. With Cherry MX mechanical keys, macro keys, bright LED back-lighting, and more, it wants to take the place of your current keyboard, no questions asked. So how about we dive in and take a better look and let the facts decide for themselves.
Zalman Z-Machine ZM-K700M Closer Look:
The Zalman Z-Machine is designed for the gamer in mind, providing features gamers need in order to have that competitive edge. The front of the ZM-K700M packaging displays this theme with the sleek dark design and the full image of the gaming keyboard for your viewing pleasure. In addition to the model number and the logos, you can see right off the bat that this keyboard was designed with Cherry MX mechanical switches, which should be seen as a good thing by most computer fanatics familiar with the benefits of a good mechanical keyboard. On the back of the packaging, there is a list of the features, such as the back-lighting and more, along with the specifications of the keyboard.
Opening up the ZM-K700M box, you can see that it is well packaged to ensure your keyboard arrives safe and sound with no breakage. As a no frills keyboard — which honestly I like a keyboard that just works well and not all too flashy — there is only the user manual included. There are no driver CDs or anything else needed to run the keyboard; just plug it in and play.
Now that we have the keyboard out of the box, how about we look closer at its features.
