Hothardware review

 

As with other mechanical keyboards we have seen recently the Meka G1 does not come with fancy macro controls or flashy illumination options, that's not what the Meka G1 is about. What Tt eSPORTS have done is stripped back all this and created a very high quality product with some standout features.
The finish on the Meka G1 is to a very high quality. The matt black is highlighted nicely with the red Tt logo and the use of the Military grade steel woven USB cable is a very impressive feature. We haven't seen this level of durability provided on many peripherals before. The quality continues when we look at the switches used. Cherry Black mechanical switches offer a lifespan of 50 million keystrokes, more than enough for even the most hard-core gamer. These keys also make the Meka a very nice board to type and game on, very similar in feel to models such as SteelSeries 6G.

The Meka G1 adds additional value by offering USB pass-through as well as audio connectors for both headset and microphone. So, at £95/$110 the Meka G1 isn't the cheapest mechanical keyboard we have seen, however the high quality construction of the keyboard along with a great set of features means it certainly offers gamers value for money.

Summary
A very good mechanical keyboard with excellent features and some stand out highlights.

Thanks. I have time so im going to hold off a little here before ordering. I still want to see what IlIkeJuice  is offering for this so called Competition at this price point. I want to keep my option open but I am not sure If I will find a Mech Keyboard (Black Switches) at $60.00 besides this board.
