Meka for the Pro!
There are many mechanical keyboards out there! Once upon a time, Cherry MX was the only mechanical switches available around the world. The first and the oldest mechanical keyboard we had in India was the TVSe Bharat which only had the Cherry MX Blue keys. That was my first experience with a mechanical keyboard and it felt quite a lot of work compared to a membrane type. As time passed, I appreciated the mechanical switches as they lasted a very long time.
But with different switches were available and it looked to be more beneficial for a different type of users. As soon as Cherry MX’s patent expired, the floodgate opened for many manufacturers to use mechanical switches made by Kailh, Outemu, Greetech, Gateron, Zoto and Zealio. So choosing a good keyboard to serve you well for a long time was not an easy task even if your preference was the Cherry MX.
The only Thermaltake product I’ve ever used was the Big Typhoon. I kept using it even on the AM3+ platform using Enzotech’s LGA 775 to AM3+ converter bracket. It was also my first aftermarket CPU cooler that I used for the e7300, the 550BE and the 965 BE. So it was interesting to see how Thermaltake keyboards are. Today, we’re checking out the Tt eSports Meka Pro keyboard!
Packaging and Contents
The Meka Pro’s packaging is straightforward just as any keyboard maker I’ve reviewed so far. The front shows the Cherry MX switch type of this keyboard is using while all the functions are showed at its back. The one we’re testing with is the Cherry MX blue switch has very good tactile feedback and intentional click sound that produces during actuation. Naturally, TteSports MEKA Pro have other Cherry MX switches available- red and brown. The inner packaging is just as you would expect for a keyboard. You get a key puller, some additional red coloured keys and some reading documentation.
