GAMDIAS HERMES M5 Keyboard Review

In a recent review of a Redragon keyboard, I had noted how the company uses Hindu deity names for products, and how it was similar to GAMDIAS using Greek gods. That got me thinking about it having been a while since our last GAMDIAS keyboard review with the HERMES P2 RGB over three years ago. One thing led to another, and after browsing the GAMDIAS website and a couple of emails back and forth, here we are resuming coverage of the GAMDIAS brand. Thanks again to the company for sending a review sample to TechPowerUp!

The subject of this review is the HERMES M5, which was what I wanted to take a look at myself. GAMDIAS sent along another keyboard, which will be covered separately, and we can see that the HERMES M5 is a full-size keyboard with a color scheme different from basically anything else you may have expected from the brand. GAMDIAS calls the HERMES M5 a minimalist mechanical keyboard with a refreshing keycap colorway as well as matching backlighting and all on-board controls. Oh, and all this is supposedly at an attractive price too! Let's take a look at these claims in detail in our review that begins with a look at the product specifications in the table below.
