TteSports Poseidon Z Mechanical Kailh Blue Switch Keyboard Review

In the office today I have something very special, the TteSports Poseidon Z Mechanical Keyboard. While having a mechanical keyboard in for review often feels like a special occasion anyway, since they’re often regarded as premium quality device, there is something uniquely interesting about this keyboard, its switches. The Posidon Z features Kailh switches, and in a market dominated by switches produced by Cherry there has long been room for a strong competitor to enter the market, or at least a cheaper competitor. The question is, can the Kailh Blue switches keep up with the excellent performance of the Cherry MX Blue?

Featuring a different switch is one thing, many keyboards implement different methods of registering a keystroke, the important thing about the Kailh switches is that they’re effectively a copy of the Cherry style mechanical switch, but without the wallet hurting price tag often associated with high-end mechanical keyboards. The Poseidon Z will set you back a very affordable £53 / $89, which is around 40% cheaper than most Cherry switch options that are on the market with a similar specification.

As you can see from the specifications below the keyboard is pretty standard fare for a mechanical keyboard, it has a fixed 1000HZ polling rate, full LED backlighting, a 1.8 meter braided cable and 6-8 key anti-ghosting.

The keyboard comes nicely packaged with a great image of the keyboard on the front, as well as a yellow sticker that reads “certified mechanical switch 5 year warranty.”


Around the back of the box we have a more detailed rundown of the major features, including the multimedia keys, Windows key disabler, LED backlighting and N-Key rollover support.


In the box you’ll find a warranty policy booklet and a multi-language quick installation guide, although the device is as simply plug and play, so it shouldn’t take you more than a few seconds to get it setup and ready to rock.
