    Tt eSPORTS, the leading expert in professional e-Sports gaming peripherals, is officially announcing the POSEIDON Illuminated gaming keyboard for sale. Being no stranger to bringing forth well designed gaming keyboards, from membrane to plunger to mechanical types - Tt eSPORTS decided it was time to make a quality Cherry MX gaming keyboard at an extremely affordable price so that more gamers around the world could have the chance to experience a mechanical keyboard.

    The design was carefully planned, taking no shortcuts in construction and overall function, to bring out a premium backlit mechanical gaming keyboard without the premium price. With a solid ABS body construction, the POSEIDON Illuminated will not give way to flex while pushing down on the keys as many other pricier keyboards seem to suffer from.

    The POSEIDON Illuminated comes with all the main features a mechanical gaming keyboard needs, with no need for extra software - providing the ultimate in plug and play compatibility for both gaming at home and being a lan warrior.

    • Cherry MX Blue switches - Perfect for the user who prefers a tactile and clicky response. These switches are built for speed and durability, and are rated to last for 50 million keystrokes.
    • Fully Back-Lit keyboard -With an LED under each cap, the POSEIDON Illuminated is a fully back-lit keyboard, offering 4 levels of adjustable brightness via the Fn (function) + F11/F12 keys.
    • N-Key Rollover - With 6-8 Key N-Key Rollover support, gamers can freely hit multiple combinations of keys at a time for a fluid gaming session.
    • Accessible Media Keys - With the Fn (function) + F1-F7 keys, you can control your volume and media player anytime, without having to minimize your current game or program.
    • Disable Windows key switch - With the disable 'windows key' button, gamers can prevent accidental presses of the windows key while in-game, and avoid frustration from accidentally jumping out of an intense game mid-battle.

    The POSEIDON Illuminated gaming keyboard MSRP is USD $79.99, and will start rolling out worldwide in August.

    It sucks when people make mechanical gaming keyboards without Macro keys, but I guess its going to hit a lower price point than other mech keyboards on the market, so budget gamers wouldnt mind so much.
    I personally hate blue MX switches. One of the reasons I moved away from mech keyboards until the Ryos black MX switch model comes out.

    Marketing bulletpoint fail. How can 'n-key' rollover be for '6-8' keys? :/
