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.
