Backlighting and Profiles
The Poseidon Z Forged only has blue backlighting. It has five different levels, 0 being off and 5 bring the brightest. The lighting also has a pulse effect wherein the backlighting goes in a slow blinking effect.
On the images above you can see the lowest level and the brightest level of the backlighting. Personally, my eyes can only tolerate up to level 2, anything higher is too bright for me.
Here are a few preset gaming lighting profiles above. Unfortunately you cannot make new ones for your own. The keyboard is divided into segments which you can customize the backlighting and the preset gaming layout but other than that, you can't make new ones. One interested feature the Poseidon Z Forged has is that the backlight on the Caps Lock, Scroll Lock and Num Lock keys goes on or off as you turn it on or off as well.
We will take a look at how to use the backlighting presets as we take a look at the software which is up next.
