   Black Friday came and went and although crowds were forming outside of consumer electronics stores all over the world i found myself sitting in the office testing several gaming peripherals with some of the latest titles to hit the PC including Need For Speed Payback, Call Of Duty WWII, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Operation Blood Orchid and Middle Earth Shadow Of War. The reason i even mention black Friday (can't say i was impressed with the offers we had here, hope it was different where you're at) is because leading to this day several friends (and even some of our readers) reached out to me and asked my opinion regarding mechanical keyboards. Some wanted to know which i believe is the most durable while others just wanted one that had a "special" keystroke similar to that of a typewriter. Well as it so happens GAMDIAS just send their latest product lines to us a couple of weeks ago including their new Hermes P1 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard which i think will interest many of you.


   GAMDIAS emphasizes on the fundamentals, complemented with creativity and service. GAMDIAS Technology was founded in 2012, successfully creating the gaming brand known as GAMDIAS. Not only do we aim to set the bar for quality and practically, but also to go above and beyond in our designs. Further supplementing our motto: Gaming Art in Motion, we will continue to invest heavily on designs, transcending GAMDIAS products to an artistic pantheon.


   The Hermes P1 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a feature-rich model that comes ready with a 32-bit Cortex-M3 ARM processor with 72kb of built-in memory (for its onboard profiles), 16.8 million colors (RGB) customizable backlighting for all of its keys (with 13 effects), anodized aluminum faceplate, full n-key rollover (NKRO) with 100% anti-ghosting, 1000Hz polling rate, on-the-fly macro recording (2 macro keys), detachable wrist rest (GAMDIAS calls it the quick-attach wrist rest) and mechanical blue switches made by TTC (Trantek Co) rated for up to 50 million keystrokes (50/60g actuation force). The Hermes P1 RGB is actually the very first model to arrive in our office that features TTC mechanical switches so there's not much we can say about them other than they also manufacture black, red, brown, yellow and dark green switches (not available however with the Hermes P1 RGB).
