2nd one to die after 3-6 months

Ed, Amazon
9 March 2016
  • Summary: This is the second one that has died the same way as the first. The backlights start cutting out at random at the same time, the keys go dead, so you miss letters in the typing. It keeps getting worse until its dead. The keyboards have lasted 3-6 months.

Died, Return Not Suggested. Bad RMA service.

Chip, Amazon
16 December 2015
  • Summary: Died after 11 months. I got an RMA number, but gigabyte WILL NOT pay for return shipping, and the shipping cost to return this is about $50 for me (I live in NM). Gigabyte's RMA address is in CA, so you gauge your state based on that.

  • Summary: Purchased this from a local reseller (wont list here in case it's against rules) without reading a single review. I just tested a dozen or so keyboards, and loved this one. Until I plugged it in. Mine was DOA. No lights, no responses, no nothing.

Good keyboard, but pray you don't need help from their eSupport.

Chad L., Newegg
12 February 2015
  • Pros: Very good keyboard. I love the feel, ergonomics, and performance that I got with the purchase. However, for the money, you'd have to expect it.
  • Cons: I lost a key (Z key), and not sure what happened to it. It may have gone into the vacuum while cleaning my office. I submitted a ticket to see if you can get a replacement. They asked me to contact service department by email to see if they have any parts. Three emails, and 3 months later, NO RES...

Great until it died

josh p., Newegg
20 January 2015
  • Summary: From a great keyboard to a large paperweight.
  • Pros: Solid build, great to type on. Massive cord, USB 3 port, lots of nice features. Got a few months of use out of it.
  • Cons: Awesome until it stopped working randomly. Now the profile button lights up, but none of the keys light up and the keyboard doesn't register anything. No way to update the firmware.

Jack W., Newegg

It's good while it lasted.

Shan-Ta Y., Newegg
2 December 2014
  • Summary: Wrote a review on June 30, 2013. At that time, one of my LEDs from under the "7" key gave out. Thought it was just an unlucky circumstance. A few months out of warranty, at least 5 of my keys no longer work on this keyboard.
  • Pros: It uses high quality cherry red switches. LED brightness is adjustable. Function keys are convenient. Audio volume can be directly controlled from keyboard.
  • Cons: LED gave out. Keys no longer respond.

Was on my second one!

Angus M., Newegg
20 November 2014
  • Summary: Guess I'm out of luck with any warranty on this replacement and will think twice about buying any Gigabyte product again
  • Pros: Liked the keyboard and mechanical keys and backlights.
  • Cons: Built a gaming system with all components purchased from Newegg.ca Everything else I bought except the Gigabyte Aivia osmium keyboard has been 100 percent. The first one failed (lights went out and was dead) just before the year was out so I managed to go through Gigabytes RMA process and sent it...
