A Closer Look
Taking the Neptune Elite RGB out of its packaging we are met with quality and craftsmanship. This keyboard has a great feel to it and weight. You can really tell that Tt eSPORTS really took their time in the decision what to add to this keyboard as well the features and the functions.
Let’s start with the top. Near the top left of the keyboard above the escape key, we see the Tt eSPORTS logo. Near that logo are 3 buttons, these are Game Mode, Brightness and a windows lock button. These are quick keys that will help change things on the fly. Nothing worse than in the heat of the moment and you accidentally hit the Windows key. Having a Windows lock key makes a lot of sense and being able to lock that key with 1 button makes even more.
Looking near the number keys, starting with number 7 we see the beginning of the programmable Macro keys. All of these keys are programmable within the software.
Moving over to the right side of the keyboard we see the multimedia keys as well as a volume scroll wheel. This is one of my favorite features on a keyboard. Being able to adjust the volume that quick and easy is sometimes one of the most used features on my keyboards. It is one of the things that I personally look for in a new keyboard.
Using the included keycap puller, I was able to pull the keycaps very easily and this exposed the TTC dust proof RGB mechanical switches. While keycaps were off, I install the included red keycaps.
Taking a look at the USB connectors. The Neptune comes with a thick braided cable as well as 2 gold-plated USB connectors. They are both not needed and come labeled which is handy. If you want to use the included USB passthrough on the back of the keyboard you will need to use both USB connectors.
Taking a look at the side profile angle of the keyboard, we can see the floating keycap design. This adds a nice comfortable touch to the keyboard. Also, we have another angle of the media scroll wheel and the multimedia keys.
Flipping the keyboard over we can see the adjustable feet to help with the angle of the keyboard, the rubber pads on the feet to help with sliding on a smooth surface and the item sticker in the middle of the keyboard. The adjustable feet have 3 positions to choose from, flat or no angle, a small short angle, and a 3rd larger foot to help raise the back of the keyboard higher. It is your preference on how you like your keyboard to sit, and I like that there are multiple options available.
Let’s take a look at the included wrist rest. This is an optional piece and strictly based upon user preference. It has 2 clips that attach to the front of the keyboard. On the bottom of the wrist rest, we see 2 additional rubber feet to help with grip on smooth surfaces.
