Thermaltake seems very "inspired" by Corsair and Logitech in this one indeed.
Thermaltake has been an "inspired" company for some years now.

Thermaltake has been "inspired" by other products and companies since their inception.
That's why they have "take" in their name

That's true, but without logitech's romer-g switches that break systematically. I'm on my second G413 and I'm not abusive to my keyboard in the least.

They even copied logitech's g613 disadvantages, for example the non-removable wrist wrest :D

I'd still buy it though. I wonder whether windows hello could support a wireless keyboard such as this if it had an integrated fingerprint reader (whether the relevant data can be sent wirelessly). I would buy that in an instant.

And also "too linear", at least in my taste. Gaming would take advantages on that, but not so much when typing.
Keychron K8 would be good alternative, but its TKL and I need numpad keys. G915 GL tactile feels good, but I wouldn't pay that much for gamer garbage feature I don't need.
