Thermaltake loves to put RGB LEDs in computer parts. The Taiwanese outfit has studded fans, power supplies, and mice with color-changing lights in order to add appeal to these products. The company has now pulled back the curtain on its Meka Pro mechanical gaming keyboards with LED lighting. The new keyboards have per-key LED illumination, but only in "Cherry MX" red. The color may be static, but Thermaltake does provide several dynamic lighting modes like pulse, sparkle, and wave. All Meka Pro keyboards are full-size models with ten-key sections, and buyers get to choose between Cherry MX Blue, Brown, or Red switches.
The Meka Pro keyboards have a gaming mode where only genre-specific keys are illuminated. Users can select from FPS, MOBA, MMO, and RTS modes. If this does not add enough emphasis for game-critical keys, Thermaltake also includes nine red replacement key caps. The keyboards' hardware allows for macro recording and playback without any special software.
The Meka Pro weighs in just under 2.5 lbs (1.2 kg) and measures 17.3" x 5.2" x 1.4" (or 44 cm x 13.3 cm x 3.6 cm). Thermaltake didn't say when we'd see the Meka Pro keyboards in stores, but noted that street prices should be $100 for the versions with Cherry MX Blue and Brown switches, and $110 for the MX Red variant.
