Review of the Gamdias Hermes keyboard M1 7 Color
Next review - the next device from the brand Gamdias. This time we will talk about mechanical keyboard Hermes M1 7 Color.
In the hands of his owner's keyboard gets in the standard package: carton plus manual. The only thing that knocks a few of the usual set - stand under a palm. This detail is not often found in sets gaming keyboards, but here it is and it's great, especially when you consider that the average price of a Hermes M1 7 Color located in 3990 value R.
The stand itself is plastic. Here there is no cunning cover - plain frosted plastic with a glossy embossed pattern. On the underside there are three rubber feet. On the front of the keyboard casing are two holes that look like decorative elements. In fact it is the grooves for fixing the stand.
On the reverse side Hermes M1 7 Color we can see extendable legs with rubber pads, chute protected fabric shell of the wire and placed in a special compartment (our first manufacturer who came up with such elegant and practical solutions) puller for the keys.
Taking keyboard in hand, immediately say to yourself its incredible lightness. Weight Hermes M1 7 Color hardly heavier than normal “membrane”. The design of the keyboard - the “skeleton”, and this means that under the keys there are no recesses. All the buttons are mounted directly on the housing. The basis on which the keys are made of a single piece of aluminum. The grinding marks on the glossy plate and the absence of unnecessary elements makes the keyboard's appearance is concise and serious.
Hermes key M1 are based on the brown switch own production company Gamdias. These remarkable switches that, first, their operating life is designed for 50 million keystrokes, and secondly, they are completely silent. Yes, that's right, the switches do not emit clicks when triggered, the only sound that the user hears when the print hits the plastic caps on the metal body, but it is comparable to printing on plain “membrane”. On the one hand, buying Hermes the M1, you can be assured that neighbors will sleep peacefully. On the other hand, the keyboard has no special tactile response, which are known mechanical devices.
Keystroke free. The buttons do not oppose and do not stuck, even if the finger gets to the edge or corner keys. This is true for all buttons except space. This button installed on their own single switch. It is located right in the center of the button. To the edges of the key are summed up with a special attachment that was supposed to neutralize “the effect of swing” by pressing the right or left side gap, but a slight imbalance still remains, however, is not critical.
Now for the highlight. The name Hermes M1 7 Color speaks for itself. The backlight of this model, seven-colored series, that is, each row of keys has its own color [Question: series six, seven and flowers or light bulbs-the Num, Caps and Scroll lights count too?]. All the symbols are lit uniformly, however it is worth to note that the engraved Hermes M1 7 Color available only for English characters. Cyrillic is the same and additional information are not highlighted, because their manufacturer made with white paint.
The three modes of lighting: static, ripple effect and mode, when the backlight is activated only while pressing any of the buttons. The owner can choose one of three levels of brightness and speed ripple.
You can adjust the brightness by using the digital keypad, but to adjust the speed ripple will have to apply to the program Hera. In this program it is possible to swap FN and Win (this is really a convenient little thing), to assign various functions to any of the buttons to create macros and then attach them to one of the two programmable keys. You can also create audio reminders and timers to be triggered either by clicking on a certain key or after a certain time. Ready settings the owner Hermes M1 7 Color can save in one of six profiles. In short, a set of functions and settings in Hera very rich.
As the keyboard itself Hermes M1 7 Color and its software support Hera, we were pleasantly surprised. The quality, appearance - all this on top, but it's not about that. First and foremost, we were struck by the meticulousness Gamdias makes their devices simple and functional. The manufacturer is trying not to leave anything and it is worthy of praise.
A few words I would like to say about the mouse pad Gamdias Nyx Control, which arrived along with the keyboard.
It is a comfortable fabric Mat size 350х280мм (also on sale you can find a model 450х350мм). Its working surface is made of reinforced fabric according to the technology of so-called "honeycomb". Such structure of the material allows players to more accurately control the movement of the mouse. On this surface the mouse with any legs feels great.
The reverse side of the Gamdias Nyx Control made from 100% natural rubber, which is very firmly locks the pad to the surface of the table.
Around the contour of the carpet is stitched with durable thread that will not give Gamdias Nyx Control to scatter after the first “rollers”.
