In conclusion I think this keyboard is a step in the right direction for Themaltake’s Tt-eSPORTS line. The MEKA has good things about it, but would I recommend this unit over something like the Corsair Vengeance K60 Mechanical Keyboard? The answer is, “no.” Thermaltake took a gamble with the form-factor of this keyboard and I think they lost. Most people (even gamers) prefer a “normal” keyboard and there is little to no reason to deviate from that formula.
For the money (around $100 at my favorite online retailer) you could find many other options in the mechanical gaming keyboard realm that would make you much happier. You can very much tell that this is Thermaltake’s first take on a mechanical gaming keyboard and I can only see improvement coming from this experiment.
Since the release of this keyboard was over a year ago Thermaltake has listened to the masses and released the MEKA-G1. The MEKA-G1 is an updated fuller version the MEKA and resolves many of the issues listed in this review. Maybe in the future Thermaltake will send out a G1 to see if it can hold up to the likes of the Corsair Vengeance K60 or K90. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Tt eSPORTS MEKA Mechanical Gaming Keyboard a 7 out of 10 score.
