As someone who loves to do reviews, it is known to me a no no to start my review with my conclusion. That being said I want to start this review with my conclusion and let any who read it know, this Gamdias Hermes Lite combo, for those of you just getting in to gaming, to those of you wanting to upgrade from the membrane keyboard and less than adequate mouse in front of you, to those of you looking to be adventurous and try something new, then this is perhaps one of the best most affordable alternatives on the market.
The Hermes Lite comes with a very solid durable heavy construction 104 key mechanical keyboard design. The particular flavor I tested is red (TTC) mechanical switches. They are very close in feel and comparison with Cherry MX reds if you have ever used those. Red switches are a little more quiet than browns, blues, blacks and so on. They don’t have a tactile click bump, they have a stop and release bump on actuation (best way to describe red switches, they don’t have the springy push back, its more of a smooth transaction from depression to release, and a muffled more dull sound). The keycaps can be easily removed and replaced with other t-stem keycap switches (such as off of your favorite broken Cherry MX board). This may be a concern to some of you who want to use after market switches, the answer is yes, you can use after market switches.
The illumination behind each key is a single RED LED light. Using HERA (the GUI) you are able to change very basic features and functions. No fancy ripple or wave effects, its straight forward brightness up-down, off, or pulsing. If red is your theme then this will accommodate it well. While on the topic of HERA it should be noted, to use hot functions like ‘On the Fly Recording’ (for macros) HERA must be running. The simple fact that a mechanical keyboard (and mouse) for this price have the full support of a graphic user interface, is incredible. You are easily able to navigate through HERA and set up macros within the software, as well as assign individual keys to specified tasks.
Whats makes this a ‘Lite’ flavor keyboard? Some of the fancier bells and whistles are left off of it. The lack of a braided cable as one example (both on the Erebos II mouse and the keyboard). The lack of additional fun lighting effects and colors as another. These are completely understandable trade offs to target a more budget oriented market. Good quality build wins me every time, over fancy flashy, yet faulty. I cannot say enough how much I love to see a company like Gamdias try and cover the full spectrum of the market, and the Hermes Lite Combo is a powerful accessory to their arsenal, and should be heavily considered for your arsenal if this is your target range.
A quick note on the weight of the keyboard, and its ability to stay firmly in place. Four rubber feet in the front, with two rubber feet on the risers in the back, combined with the heavy construction quality, makes this keyboard stay firmly in place. Smart applications for those who game, a keyboard that will sit still and not require the user to have an over-sized mouse pad. Kudos.
The Erebos II Lite 7302 Model is not what I was hoping for, but completely understandable and still exceptional given the sibling device it comes with, and the price it sells for. When I read about the Erebos mouse (7500 model) it was far and away one of the coolest products from Gamdias I had read about, and seen. The Erebos Lite, however, is not the same mouse. BUT It should be noted that it truly is a gaming mouse. It features and Avago ADNS 3050 Entry to gaming optical sensor. Not some terri-bad not for gaming sensor. It also features Omron switches with 10 million click life cycle ratings. The mouse covers all of the basics, but I find its weight at 90g a little light for my taste. I have a big hand, and the mouse is easily comfortable to me.
I know it sounds as if I may be beating up on the Erebos Lite, but the truth is, it is not the center piece of the purchase here. It is perfectly adequate and acceptable. It also is fully supported by HERA with the ability to change LED colors within, assign profiles, change polling rates, accelerations, and hardware components inside all speak for themselves. A real gaming sensor… Real name in switches… A real well designed body (albeit light at 90g).
While I do not use it as my daily driver I see the full value in this combo, and this may be the first time Gamdias has gotten an overwhelming yes to five stars from me. I, in conclusion, or to recap my conclusion, find this to be an awesome pickup, a great deal, and perhaps perfect for those of you who are on the fence looking to upgrade your peripheral setup.
Keyboard itself is similar to other blue switch keyboards in terms of feel/sound. Know your preferred key type! The plate is solid, making the keyboard feel nice and sturdy. It feels ready to travel!
I wish the micro USB port on the back was better (wider)... many cables will be too wide for this by 1 or 2 mm I'd guess. You'll have to keep the manufacturer cable at all times, which defeats the point... the U in micro USB. Hoping gen 2 has a stronger, wider port and maybe just goes USB-C altogether.
I want to find a travel case for this, but I'm really excited to travel with this. Removable USB cord and RGB was a must in this purchase decision along with being decent to travel with.
Going to a local LAN this weekend and will put this keyboard through it's paces some more. Been using it for hours already while typing (not gaming). Will report back.
Update 2018.02.26: Keyboard performed wonderfully. I'm having a really great time with it! Will be ordering a travel case for flights later this year. It looked better than almost every other keyboard I saw at the LAN!
