Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls of all ages step right up and see the amazing, the fantastic, the unbelieveable, RGB LED mechanical keyboard! Alright let’s just cut to the chase here and come right out with it. Having RGB keys and backlighting on a mechanical keyboard is no longer enough to sell all on it’s own. The market is simply flooded with these decks and they come in all flavors, shapes, and sizes. What was once a neat trick for those silly dome switch equipped decks is now available from every switch and board manufacturer out there. In fact not having an RGB LED mechanical deck in your product line up has become more of an oddity. Whether you consider these prism emulating input devices to be worthy of your hard earned buck is entirely up to you. However since they are the hottest thing since, well, sliced bread I suppose let’s go ahead and check one of them out. The newest deck in Zalman’s well rounded stable is the ZM-K900M. It is of course RGB LED and comes equipped with Khailh blue switches. Follow along as we find out if this keyboard is worthy of being your personal input device.
The ZM-K900M comes to us in a box that reflects just how colorful the product is inside. Starting at the front of box we find a photo of the keyboard with the deck lit up in a rainbow display of all the colors in the center. The upper corners are set with chrome lettering with the name and branding. Below the board are several information bubbles with the main specs from the keyboard. The whole thing is then set against a black background.
Flipping the box to the back we find the full set of specifications that we included above, as well as the main features listed in the 11 most significant languages to Zalman.
Rotating the box to any of the four remaining sides will serve you with a flat black background and the product name and branding repeated.
