Nightmare in a box

  • Summary: There are way better options out there. Skip this.
  • Pros: Great tactile feel. Looks great. Nice shape. Very little fluff.
  • Cons: This keyboard has given me nothing but headaches since I received it for Christmas 2012. For one, it regularly has sticky keys. This results in a flood of letters, spaces, or backspaces on your screen until you tap the button again. Secondly, it double taps a lot. As a writer, this causes typos regularly.

  • Summary: I've enjoyed using the keyboard and I like the type of mechanical keys it uses. I would have liked to know before hand that the actual size of the keys seems to be a bit smaller than the standard keys from any other keyboard I have. This shrinks the length of the keyboard down, which may be good for some with limited space, but I have fairly big hands and I would have rather just had full sized keys.
  • Pros: Nice mechanical keys, good backlighting, seems to be built solidly and sturdily.
  • Cons: I have had issues with it not working several times, which has required unplugging and replugging it in. Keys seem to be slightly smaller than the standard size keys.

  • Summary: If the keyboard worked properly it would be perfect
  • Pros: The keyboard is beautiful and very easy to customize. The action when typing is responsive and the sound is satisfying without being too loud.
  • Cons: The keyboard routinely disconnects when gaming. The Aivia logo on the keyboard will not turn off but the rest of the backlighting will, rendering the keyboard unresponsive. This happens sporadically and although I contacted Gigabyte support about the issue they have not gotten in touch with me. If the keyboard actually worked I would have no problem rating it 5/5.

A sheep in wolf's clothing

  • Summary: This is based from my review of the version with MX Red switches, as I doubt the fact that this one has the MX Brown switches (something this advert does not make very clear) makes it immune from the problem I've had. Basically after only six months of light use the space bar sheared off when I picked the keyboard up to clean underneath it.

Клавиатура проводная Gigabyte Aivia OSMIUM Gaming USB 3.0 Black (механическая, макросы, подсветка)

  • Summary: На мой взгляд, для товара с такой ценой проблемы с USB просто неприемлемы, проблема часто наблюдается, если в какое-либо из задних usb подключаешь флешку или телефон.
  • Pros: Механика, отзывчивые кнопки, яркая подсветка.
  • Cons: Отвратительная работа USB, он периодически отваливается, я не знаю в чем там проблема, но частенько(раз в неделю стабильно) в ответственный момент приходится отодвигать компьютер от стенки и перевтыкивать клавиатуру. Громкие кнопки(хотя, возможно, это болезнь любой механики). Высокая цена, явно завышенная. Кнопка Enter отвратительна, случайные нажатия на "" гарантированы.
