I bought the stock version of this keyboard (kailh not cherry) a while back and was confused as I didnt know they could make a cherry version. I really like the keyboard but theres some chatter when you type, some keys register twice. Wonder if this one gets that too?

I've had one since a couple drops ago and have no issues like that. Only issue is that sometimes my girlfriend complains about the noise :P

Tt isn't exactly regarded as the highest quality brand in the world so it's possible there is an issue with the PCB or Bad soldering etc etc,bad firmware and debounce settings can also create issues. It is possible you have a defective switch or two but personally iv'e found that fairly rare in all honesty. The one plus side to the Tt boards is that long warranty at least means should you encounter an issue you've quite a long warranty.
Though i have heard mixed results of their customer service,still if yours is still under warranty (which is likely) i would try to set up an RMA personally while it still is.
$63 Prime shipped on Amazon right now. :-(

But they aren't cherry switches
jjnist
Okay I see that now. The one on Amazon uses Kailh switches.
Need this drop again so badly
Just got the new keyboard hooked up, and it seems GLORIOUS. I was a little concerned about the noise level, but my wife assures me that within 3-4 days, she won't be bothered by the clicking anymore.
Downside: the backlight is TOO bright (as if this should be possible). Granted, I don't need the backlight to be on unless I need to blind an intruder, which this keyboard would be able to do on setting 2 (0 being off). I'm fairly confident that 3 would be visible from orbit, if I didn't have a roof.
TL;DR - I love this keyboard, and my wife can't look at my keyboard when the lights are on.

Isn't there a tenkeyless version of this keyboard? I really need a cheap compact keyboard :/
Are these being manufactured expressly for Massdrop, or are they old stock that tT is using Massdrop to get rid of without having to spend their shelf space in stores?
If it's the former, I wonder if they could do a Cherry version (or a Gateron version, or a KBT "squirrel axis"(!) version) of the Poseidon Forged. That could be neat...
FoxWolf1
These are specially ordered for MassDrop. I'd imagine it will not be difficult to replace MX clones with true Cherry MX Blues as more than likely the PCB and casing is all the same. I don't see much difference in the cases from Poseidon and Poseidon Z. As said before, these are no longer being manufactured and sold to retail channels or online. Poseidon and Poseidon Z are not the same thing. True Cherry MX Blues are only available here on MassDrop.
Sorry if this has been asked previously, but is the backlighting one color, or can it be changed? I was looking at a Rosewill Keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches ($80) on Amazon, but if I can get it for cheaper (even if it's a few bucks) plus backlight that's great :) I would love custom backlighting but any backlighting is better than no backlighting (most of the time... :) ) Thanks!
laspahr
Blue only, AFAIK.
A few quick questions - anyone from pervious drops in the UK get hit with customs/import duty/VAT surcharge? And I'm assuming that we get shipped a US layout keyboard? :)
Will I pay customs if I order 2? (I live on Greece)
gech
You should check with your Custom Office on your country about regulation.
Does this model come with the convex (rounded) key caps in the first row (as pictured in the description)? My local computer warehouse store sells the Kailh version of this, but the Ctrl, Alt, Win Keys have been changed to a more standard profile. I really like the convex key caps as they feel very nice when pressing with the side of your thumb.
Analog_J
My version of Poseidon Z has the convex shape in the bottom row. Bought it only like 4 months ago (last December). Don't know what to tell you, other than the TKL version seem to have different keycaps.
kschang
Thanks. You're right. TKL version has the "standard" profile modifier keys.
Does this suffer from the same issue working with macs (probably for NKRO) as the Poseiden Z and ZX? I have a ZX and it is unusable on Mac without installing an unsigned kext. http://community.thermaltake.com/index.php?/topic/1396-poseidon-z-driver-for-mac-os-x-1010/
Just an fyi to anyone who is considering this drop, regardless of price this board with Cherry MXs is fantastic. I've had this board with MX browns for nearly three years and is built solid and hasn't displayed any signs of ware.
$28.33 USD shipping to Canada...

Only 14$ to austria... that's actually okay. But i can sadly still beat your score. 37$ shipping on the wasd v2 literally a third of the price was shipping...
robinkomenda
I think the 'game' need to stay within the item or everything goes haywire. I can't find the wasd v2 right now to check the shipping, but if we are going fishing then iQunix Monitor stand costs $37.99 for which the shipping is $28.
I thought the Cherry MX version wasn't in production anymore. The kailh version is trash.

The keyboard comes with 5 years warranty. Did they stand behind their warranty?
I've owned two Cooler Master mechanical keyboard over the past 3 years (I went from a full size kb to compact), and both have served me quite well. No issues, everything works great. Might want to give them a go.
Corsair also seems to be a solid go-to when it comes to mass-market mechanical keyboards.
Same here, $21.35 of shipping to italy?
LOL NOPE.
I really need a keyboard with numeric keypad in this price range, but the shipping is ridiculous.
StarkITA
Shipping to Israel is 26.91 but considering the weight of almost 2kg, this is still a decent deal.
ArielS
28.33 to Canada which makes even less sense
Shipping is ridiculous for this item. It's cheaper buying this full price from Canadacomputers at 115 dollars considering massdrop price is in USD still needs to be converted
So every site I check out has this keyboard for around the same price but with Kailh switches. Can anyone who maybe has purchased this drop before confirm that this will come with Cherry Switches?
I'm looking for a decent keyboard to use at work and I want mechanical since I'm used to it at home and since its for work, I don't want to go crazy spending. But if this has Cherries, I'll wait the extra time to get this one over the Kailhs. If it does in fact have Kailh switches then I might as well get it off Amazon with Prime shipping and not have to wait till April.

Thank you for the reply! I will pick this up then and just wait it out. Nothing against Kailh but if you can get Cherry for the same price why settle.
Thanks Jbar!
Got my keyboard today. I'm currently typing on it and I can say that I am happy with it as my first mechanical keyboard!
ntoney10
ntoney10 - Just wondering... are the switches truly Cherry MX Blues? (If you pull off a keycap, the name "Cherry" is molded on the switch.) The pictures on the Massdrop page show them as Cherry Blues, but a real-thing verification would be really appreciated!

Hey @PatrikF ! Sorry for the typo, please reference the update from today. Thanks!
PeterK
Thanks Peter!
This is cheaper on Newegg when you consider shipping. Its 75$ with free shipping on there whereas it is 70$ + 8.50$ shipping = 78.50$. You also dont have to wait for it to ship
pimplimp
If you look at the last page of comments it should clarify; those aren't Cherry MX switches. Its a different model.
pimplimp
For the Nth time... Newegg has the Poseidon Z (Kailh switches). This has NO Z (Cherry Switches).
