Summary: this keyboard is awesome! it better be awesome if you have to pay so much for it! red switches are very nice they are very light, i just cant get enough from the bottom-out sounds, i need to keep typing lol
Summary: This is my first gaming mechanical keyboard, and I gotta say next to a SSD upgrade, this is simply the best upgrade to my computer use I've experienced. Coming from the similarly priced Roccat Valo (non-mechanical true) gaming board, there's no other comparison. They LEDs are 5x as bright, the construction more durable, and the software more intuitive and less prone to glitches.
Pros: Beautiful construction, great key feedback, bright LED keys.
Summary: This is my second mechanical keyboard, and the first keyboard that I truly admire the most. Unlike Corsair's offerings (K60 and K90), this keyboard features the same Cherry MX Red switches, however this keyboard does not cheap out with partial dome switch nonsense, it's all 100% mechanical here. I also liked that the software GIGABYTE has provided does not boot from startup, so it's not intrusive at all.
Pros: -Has built-in USB 3.0 (but requires connection to port on M/B), only keyboard (at time of writing) with this feature, -Fully mechanical Cherry MX Red switches, unlike Corsair with partial dome switch nonsense, -Blue backlighting, which matches very well with my Corsair M60 mouse. I liked this feature., -Cool looking and comfortable wrist rest (with no ugly logos), reminds me of the Logitech Wave keyboard that I owned years ago, -Includes a key cap puller (about $5 val...
Cons: -Price, but this keyboard feels much better to type on than my previous mechanical keyboard, so this con is negated out. Well worth the price. Otherwise, there are no real cons., -As stated in a YouTube unboxing review of this keyboard, the box is HUGE (cue in the "that's what she said" joke). But the keyboard itself is actually smaller than my previous mechanical keyboard, so I'm assuming that it was packaged big to protect the keyboard from damage.
Summary: i was looking for a long time on what keyboard to buy, i went to the store and felt almost every keyboard. Stay away from those corsiark60 and k90 compaired to this those things are CHEEEEAAAP. the leds are amazing and the addition of a usb 3.0 on the keybnoard is nice because i only have 3.0 on the back of my computer so that will be handy.
Pros: Very well built,, leds can be adjusted to whatever brightnness you want., heavy which i like for keyboard.
Summary: I have had this keyboard for about 3 days and I must say what a difference it makes in every day use. The keys feel so nice to type on. Some prefer blues/browns for typing but for me I think this is the best of both worlds if you game and type on your keyboard. I find the Black switches to be very noisy compared to the reds, thats why I chose this one instead. I have switched from my logitech g15 v2 and what a difference. BUY THIS!
Pros: - Excellent tactile feel for both gaming and every day use, - Nicely illuminated keys, - Ghost macro features are good, - Very solid, weighs a ton
Summary: This is an amazing keyboard to me. I needed one and first bought a Mionix Zibal 60. But a few hours after buying it, I realize the existence and availability of this new Gigabyte offering. Since the Osmuim was offering 1 USB 3 port and up to 25 possible macros for the same price range, I decided to return the Mionix and order this one.
Pros: On keyboard USB 3 port (1)., Volume and led adjustable with 2 independents rubber wheels., On keyboard memory chip., 5 macro keys & 5 macro profile for a total of 25 possible macros., Nice breaded cable that is not too stiff for its size., On keyboard "Winlock" key to disable Windows key when gaming., Not too noisy for a mechanical keyboard., Comfortable wrist rest., Size still close to a standard keyboard even with the extra keys., The large rubber feet and the weigh...
Cons: Would have appreciate a on screen volume indicator like the Logitech or Microsoft offerings., Beeing hard on my keys when typing, I wonder if Black Cherry switches would not have been a better choice for me.
Summary: Very good keyboard. Illumination and volume sliders are very convenient. Do note the num lock, caps lock and scroll lock leds illuminate at full brightness all the time (not annoying however). The aivia button toggles between different "pages" of macro buttons, and you can disable pages so you only alternate through the pages you use (VERY important especially if you only use 2 like me). The GUI for programming is not very easy to use, but does the job.
Summary: I felt compelled to write a review of my experience with this product, after reading the two previous rather ranty "it broke when I only gave it a little knock, honest!" reviews which had already been written. I really think it's not wise to trust the reviewer who writes that, it broke after only a little "knock", when only a few words after they admit to "full on hulk" smashing their previous keyboard - which astoundingly was ok afterwards.
Excerpt: Клава идеально подходит для тех, кто много печатает. Скорость печатания резко возрастает. Не слушайте тех, кто говорит, что красные клавиши в механических клавиатурах не подходят для печатания из-за чрезмерной мягкости. Чушь. Нажатие чувствуется идеально, зато пальцы не устают после нескольких часов работы, поскольку клавиши -- мягкие, чуть нажал и сразу же получил букву. Никаких двойных нажатий не происходит.
Pros: Стандартная раскладка, мягкое нажатие букв, отличный размер и форма клавиш -- пальцы сами встают на свои места и мимо клавиш не промахиваются при слепой печати; относительная тишина клавиш с благородным звуком механики :), регулируемая подсветка, USB на клаве, регулятор громкости и вкл./выкл. громкости в виде колёсика, регулятор подсветки и выкл. оной. Продуманно и удобно. Даже мимо прямоугольной клавиши "перевод каретки" не промахиваюсь, что бывает при такой нескольк...
Cons: Программное обеспечивание крайне убогое. Смысл функциональных клавиш мне не ясен, потому что то, что забил на них, тут же и потерялось при перезагрузке, хотя сохранял их. Не нашёл, как назначить свои проги на эти клавиши, кроме как записать последовательность действий. Впрочем, особо и не разбирался, но прога должна быть ясна любому новичку, а не ставить в тупик. В общем, ПО на "2". Ножки постоянно складываются, если пытаться подвинуть клаву против их хода. Хотелось б...
