A Closer Look
You will immediately notice that the backlighting area is a bright red even before we fire it up. You also might notice the special key at the top right. This is Thermaltake’s special macro recording key which makes it even easier for players to record their macros and key combinations on the go.
Taking a look at the bottom of the keyboard we see a product identification sticker and some pretty average snap down plastic feet to modify the angle the keyboard sits at.
Before we plug the MEKA in and take a look at its lighting effects let’s take a closer look at a couple of the special features on this keyboard
First, let’s take a look at the cord.
There isn’t anything super special to look at with this cord other than that it looks to be of a slightly larger diameter than most keyboard cords which we suspect will make it more durable and stiffer which should make cable routing and management both easier and prettier.
Here’s a close up of the right side of the keyboard which contains several of Thermaltake’s custom features. We can see the super smooth and shiny finish on this keyboard from this angle and also have a closer look at the custom macro recording key and the Thermaltake logo in the top right corner.
Zooming in, even more, we see the multifunction keys which allow you to control everything from multimedia and lighting controls to macros and win-lock. These multifunction keys are just a few of the many that are scattered all over the keyboard making dozens of features easily accessible without cluttering things up with more keys.
Speaking of keys lets pop a couple off to have a look at those Cherry Blue MX key switches. You can also clearly see the per-key LED lighting that allows the flexible lighting schemes that Thermaltake advertises.
