Thermaltake W1 Wireless Keyboard Review

Introduction

Thermaltake Logo

Thermaltake was one of the few companies that had online expo events to replace the loss of Computex 2020 and CES 2021 due to COVID-19, and one of the rare few to actually improve these events over time. Not only were there public events and announcements of new products in January, the company held detailed 1-on-1 media sessions for every product of interest. I was especially interested in their new peripherals. Under the new Argent lineup, Thermaltake is aiming to introduce a clean-looking high-end set of products to appeal to most people. We will take a look at the Argent K5 keyboard separately since it arrived just a couple of days before the newer W1 Wireless. So here we are then taking a look at this keyboard first, and thanks again to Thermaltake for sending review samples to TechPowerUp!


While not part of the Argent lineup directly, it is heavily influenced by the new design scheme the company is taking. The W1 Wireless is a large keyboard no doubt, mostly owing to the integrated wrist rest seen in the stock photo above. Otherwise, we see a good-looking unit the company advertises with three means of connectivity: wired (USB), wireless via Bluetooth, and wireless via a 2.4 GHz network. There is also no internal battery as Thermaltake uses replaceable AA batteries instead. A couple of other things add to the longevity promised with the W1 Wireless, and we will go through everything in this review that begins with a look at the specifications in the table below.
