For the software on the forged Thermaltake wen with a simple design with a skin overlay that matches the TT esports styling. It also has a little diamond print on it and the forged branding to match the keyboard a little. In the middle you have a photo of the keyboard. Right from the start you can click on any key and right down at the bottom you can select if you want to set that key to do the default action, be a single key macro, launch a program, or even a full macro. I love that you aren’t limited to just the “T” keys on the left and right side of the keyboard. Up top you have five different profiles you can flip through to set profiles depending on the games you play or for everyday use.

Over on the right side of the keyboard photo is a small light options button. Here we can set the brightness for each profile. You can also flip through a few different lighting configurations. There are configurations that light up the keys needed for FPS and also MOBAs or if you want the whole keyboard. Beyond that you can turn off individual sections, for example in the photo below I turned off the number pad. You can turn off the macro keys, F keys, and whatnot. All in all the software is fairly basic but it does get the job done, you can set your macros and you have some control over the lighting even though this isn’t an RGB keyboard.

Before we get to the weekend we have our week ending review. Today I check out the Poseidon Z Forged from Thermaltake. With a partial metal case they have gone a different direction from what they normally do with their Poseidon keyboards. Check it out and find out what it is all about! Have a great weekend everyone!
