Style Name: MEKA G1
This is probably the best keyboard I have used, and I've been an avid gamer and professional for many years now. I've used logitech, dell, Razer, and Steelseries keyboards and I can confidently say that the MEKA G1 keyboard is my favorite. I used the 7G Keyboard from Steelseries and my main problem with that was that the keys are too hard to press. The MEKA G1 solves this issue - its keys are incredibly responsive and require very little strength to press. It's hard to describe how helpful this is, especially when you're gaming for 5-6 hours, it relieves a lot of stress.

The design and layout are simple and efficient as well. There aren't a lot of fancy bells and whistles, you get a nice clean feel when using it. Overall, this keyboard is great and I'd recommend it to anyone!

This keyboard is very comfortable to type on, solidly built, all in all my favorite keyboard. The only thing I would change are the 3 status LEDs above the num pad -- they're crazy bright, but hey, that's why we have electrical tape (in the past 5 years, the only thing I use electrical tape for is covering LEDs).

Ok, here's the slightly weird thing (it took me 2 weeks to notice). If you look at the number keys on the top row, the shifted values (!@#$ etc) are printed on the bottom of the keys; the numbers are printed above the symbols -- this is the opposite of every keyboard I've ever seen. The keys work properly (no shift needed for "1").

Also, the keyboard LEDs on ;',./[]\ illuminate the shifted values (:"<>?{}|). Not a problem, unless you're typing in the dark & don't know how to touch type.

Yes, I know these aren't really problems -- and thus my 5 star rating.

Style Name: MEKA G1 Verified Purchase
Background:
I am primarily an FPS gamer, but I've also dabbled in World of Warcraft. I'm going to include my experiences with past keyboards, in case you are considering them as an alternative. I've owned a Razer Lycosa keyboard and a Saitek Eclipse before this one. The Saitek Eclipse (~$50 USD) was basically what I wanted in a keyboard, but suffered from ghosting issues. Ghosting is when you press several keys at once, and only some of them get recognized. For example, try typing a sentence while pushing both shift keys. Ghosting isn't an issue for some people, especially FPS players, but I guess I am a spaz and need all keys to be recognized when I play.

I got my Razer Lycosa (~$70 USD) about a year ago to remedy this problem. While this fixed the ghosting problem, it also introduced a few new problems. The touch-pad media control panel almost instantly broke. It I was ok with this because I didn't really need it, but it was kind of a hassle not having control over my music during long WoW sessions. The bigger issue was that keys occasionally became "stuck," as in the keyboard would think I was pressing a key when I wasn't (they weren't physically stuck). I'd have to unplug it and plug it in, which is pretty unacceptable if you're a gamer. That would happen about once or twice a week.

Enter the Thermaltake Meka G1:
I got this keyboard because I heard good things about mechanical keyboards, and this one came highly recommended from the research I did. I must say, the thing comes built like a tank. The keyboard feels like a solid piece of hardened plastic, and definitely has some heft to it. The pads on the bottom are very sticky, so you don't have to worry about it moving around during an intense gaming session.

High quality mechanical keyboard, but I ended up returning it back due to after 1 week of gaming on it keycaps legends started to become grayish color / fade and they were pearl white when brand new. I would of expect at least a good 6 months before the printing starts to fade away,but they are not laser etched and most likely fading is in order, but not this soon. If you are keyboard lover you know what I'm talking of, I would have no problem paying extra $20-$30 for this board if it came with PBT keycaps and dyesublimated legends, not expecting doubleshots since those are kinda pricey and will trow off the Meka G1 out of competing zone in the $90-$120 price range. Board was $92 when i bought it wouldnt mind paying $130 for dyesublimated PBT keycaps on the board.

Style Name: MEKA G1 Illuminated Verified Purchase
Switched from a Filco Majestouch Ninja with MX Browns. So a few months back I wanted to purchase a mechanical keyboard. After some research I kept reading "get a Filco," so I did. As advertised they are rock solid. I even bought key dampeners and engraved PBT keys, ended up dropping near $200 on what I thought was the perfect keyboard. As time went by, I learned that I was more of a peck typer than I thought and I maybe this black on black custom keyboard was not for me. So when this MEKA G1 was released in a backlit model I gave it a try, and this thing is awesome!

Pros:
- The build quality is great
- Monster braided cable
- Good weight
- Comfortable wrist rest
- MX Black switches (great for double taps, but requires solid force when typing)
- Multi-Setting Backlit keys
- USB and Audio inputs
- Full N-Key Roll Over if you use the USB to PS2 adapter

Cons:
- USB inputs only works when BOTH USB cables are plugged in. This means if you use the USB to PS2 adapter like me, you cannot use the USB inputs on the keyboard.
- Restart does not save your backlit settings (not sure if any keyboard does)
- Junction where the cable meets the multiple outputs is twice as thick as the braided cable itself. This was a small issue for me because I could not fit this piece through the 1 inch hole at the base of my monitor stand.
