Gamdias is a company that is likely not well known by many computer enthusiasts, except for perhaps some of the diehards in the crowd. In truth, Gamdias has only been around for a couple years, designing keyboards (and the company) from the ground up. Needless to say, they’re up against some industry heavyweights in the peripheral market, but perhaps that also means a chance to shine. And today we’re looking at the flagship mechanical keyboard from Gamdias, the Hermes Ultimate.

Mechanical boards are very popular among gaming enthusiasts, and it’s easy to see why. After you’ve used one, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without, shunning the cheap membrane boards for the sexy individual switch designs. There’s something refreshingly satisfying about a keyboard that provides real feedback, rather than the cheap membrane ones we’re likely unfortunately accustomed to.

A fully backlit mechanical keyboard that caters to discerning consumers who want something unique, the Gamdias Hermes Ultimate offers some very innovative features and software, extensive macros, full N-Key rollover, backlit illumination, sound dampeners, and onboard memory.

Let’s delve a bit deeper and see if the Gamdias Hermes Ultimate can stand out in a widening field of mechanical keyboards.
