ABOUT THE SWITCHES
POSEIDON Z Illuminated is using Kailh switches instead of Cherry MX . Kailh switches known as Cherry MX clone , so if you want to know more about Kailh switches please google it 🙂 , but if you ask me , I would personally choose Cherry MX
Info :- Kailh Switch Guide .
The METALCAPS accessory offers mechanical keyboard users a fun way to customize their mechanical keyboards with a metallic feel. The METALCAPS will fit on most mechanical switches with a cross shaped stem, such as Tt eSPORTS Certified Mechanical switched and Cherry MX switches.

PERSONAL THOUGHTS AND CONCLUSION
Pricing of Ttesport POSEIDON Z Brown Switch are RM349 which is quite expensive to me even it advertise as a “Budget Friendly” keyboard . The keyboard only support 6 N-Key rollover , meaning you can only press 6 key at the same time , when the 7th key registered it will release one of the 6 key you pressed , which is this will kill your experience when playing game that require you to do a crazy shit load of key combination 🙂 , did i mention there is no palm rest? . Palm rest can be purchase additionally Ttesport Gaming Wrist Rest .
The quality of the switch are pretty good , you do feel the tactile feedback when you pressing and releasing the key and the tactile feeling will help you notice the key has been registered when you press it .
I’m totally a Red switch guy , usually i only applied a very light amount of pressure on Red switch it will registered , but with brown i applied the same pressure it wont registered .
