GAMDIAS HERMES M1 – Gaming Keyboard Review

It’s been a while since my last review but GAMDIAS were kind enough to provide me with one of their HERMES M1 gaming keyboards to have a look at. This rounds off my GAMDIAS reviews for a while so I will start by saying thanks to them for sending everything they did.

The Hermes M1 is the little brother of the Hermes P1 RGB and as you can probably tell by the lack of RGB in its name doesn’t have RGB. It does have a number of back lighting modes however which I will cover as we go.
