A Closer Look – Taratarus


It’s immediately clear that the Tartarus has a lot in common with its bigger brother, much of the design is similar, but there are certainly some notable changes. The rest and palm rest is now a single piece, although this can still be extended away from the keyboard to customise the fit.

There are not only three rows of keys instead of four, and the switches are a membrane switch. Although I must admit that they’re very good switches and still have a nice tactile pop to them that’s going to be great for gaming.

The key caps have a similar short travel to the Orbweaver and you can see there are some arrows in there pointing to which keys are best suited to the usual WASD pre-sets.

There’s a nice ergonomic sweep to the key layout too, which allows for a comfortable hand and finger resting position.

While the curvy design of the palm and wrist rest allows you to get a really good grip on the device as you would on something like a gaming mouse.

The 8-way D-pad and the two control switches on the side are identical to those found on the other model, perfectly located to navigate them with your thumb.

The base has a number of thick rubber grips too, which help keep it firmly locked in place on your desktop, as you wouldn’t want it sliding away from you in the heat of battle.
