Our first Thermaltake keyboard review was of the Level 20 GT RGB keyboard earlier this year, with it being a part of Tt's venture to put forward their Level 20 brand across different product segments, including the cases it originally started with. In that very review, I made a brief comparison to the non-GT offerings, which are higher up the pecking order from the company. Today, we take a look at the Thermaltake Level 20 RGB gaming keyboard, and thanks again to Thermaltake for sending a review sample to TechPowerUp.
The Tt Level 20 series always made a statement about big, bold, structural rigidity via thick aluminium panels, which is also the case with the Level 20 RGB keyboard. Indeed, one of the biggest marketing features here, as with the Level 20 GT keyboard before, is the use of a 2 mm thick aluminium frame that prominently lays the base for the rest of the keyboard, which is on the larger side of average for even full-size keyboards. We see dedicated volume and media controls, as well as RGB backlighting. There is more going on here, even compared to the Level 20 GT, with an RGB LED strip in the middle of the keyboard, for example, and we will cover it all on the subsequent pages, but begin with a look at the specifications in the table below.
