Stay away !

Anonymous, Newegg
21 October 2013
  • Summary: Had to RMA first one after 5 months, now the replacement is developing the multiple keystroke problem after 2 months. Gigabyte won't send another keyboard until I send this one back at my cost for the second time.
  • Pros: Looks good.
  • Cons: Have to RMA every few months.

Hardware Failure in Under 2 Months

Andy T., Newegg
6 October 2013
  • Summary: Solid, excellent keyboard.
  • Pros: The keyboard is excellent. It feels great and solid, and I loved every moment using it. It was responsive and I was very impressed with the build quality. I would recommend it to anyone for both standard computing tasks, and for gaming.
  • Cons: The keyboard failed in less than 2 months. This is unacceptable for a premium product. The Aivia light remains on and the volume scroller works, but none of the keys work. It seems to be a prevalent problem as I browsed through the Aivia forums, with no fix except "Please contact us". I've just sent in the support request and my feedback of the keyboard will be based on the quality of their support.

Technical Support is Pathetic

Eric A., Newegg
24 August 2013
  • Summary: If you like a product with a company that supports their product think again and choose wisely.
  • Pros: Types ok, the lights for keys are good and I can adjust sound level.
  • Cons: Have yet to make a macro because there is no shipped documentation/software and the support on their forum page with technical information which I assume is where I would be given the knowledge is locked up unless your a "force level" status. To become "force status" you need to register your product (not a problem until you get to a little thing called check # which is missing and was never shipped or labeled on the package). I attempt e-mails w/ no response.

Unfortunate

Brian T., Newegg
2 June 2013
  • Summary: If I had known that replacement parts were not available and that the spacebar had cheap breakable plastic pieces on the bottom of it I probably would have bought something else.
  • Pros: Feels nice, is solid, the lights look cool.
  • Cons: The spacebar does not work right because it's broken. I don't think you were ever meant to take the spacebar off of the keyboard but I can because mine is semi broken. They have these little plastic pieces on the bottom of the spacebar, I can't imagine they are that durable seeing as mine is broken and they are tiny.

dissconnect

Hau-Wen H., Newegg
8 January 2013
  • Summary: just hope gigabyte can fix this problem or i think this is not a good keyboard to recommend to other people since others have same issue as me
  • Pros: looks nice, Cherry red is awsome
  • Cons: The keyboard routinely disconnects. The Aivia logo on the keyboard will not turn off but the rest of the backlighting will, rendering the keyboard unresponsive. its happen so many times already, even i unplug and reconnect again and again but still not fix

Solid, well-built and aesthetically pleasant keyboard.

Noxialis, Overclock

  • Excerpt: I recently got this keyboard, and so far I'm very impressed with it, and so, seeing there wasn't a review already, I decided to write one, hoping to inspire others to get this beautiful piece of kit.

Keyboard was perfect for 5 months. That's it.

Accudio, Amazon
27 July 2013
  • Summary: I got this keyboard in Febuary 2013. It was absolutely perfect until August, and then all of a sudden it died. What happened was I knocked it slightly, not even roughly, just a small knock, and suddenly when I try to use it buttons are haywire. Only about half the keys produce the coreect action, and most of the vital keys are absolutely useless, and produce undesirable combos. eg, I hit enter and within 10 seconds my computer has restarted.

Dålig

Johanistockholm, Prisjakt
15 April 2013
  • Summary: Fungerade bra tills det började ryka efter 1 månads användning. Slutade att fungera samtidigt... Tur att jag var hemma annars kanske hela lägenheten hade brunnit upp... Skickar tillbaks till Netonnet i dag och hoppas på att jag får pengarna tillbaks.
