Save yourself Time and Money . . . Buy something else

Martin B., Newegg
24 May 2014
  • Summary: Cheap Plastic, poor construction, buggy, and not at all user-friendly. BUY SOMETHING ELSE
  • Pros: Has a nice, braided USB cable. Ironically, I had none of the media button problems that everyone else seems to have.
  • Cons: Cheaply made, buggy. Keyboard never worked correctly from day one. I knew going in that most people reported problems with the media control keys, but I wanted to try out the keyboard itself, fully aware of this. The "anti-ghosting" seems to work opposite of its intended affect -- that is by pres...

There are Way Better Choices

Jeshua Johnson, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: OVERVIEW: If you are looking forward to the features and possibilities advertised with this board, don't be. This keyboard has many of its features bugged out and faulty. If this isn't enough of a deterrence, read the rest of the review.

Volume touch controls broken

Bobby Z., Newegg
29 September 2013
  • Summary: Get a different keyboard, it's not worth the frustration of getting killed in that critical moment when bullets are flying and all of a sudden, you can't hear, or when you've settled down in your bed to watch a movie, and you have to get up again to unmute the computer again and again.
  • Pros: The keyboard feels great to use, the keys are responsive, and the wrist rest is comfortable. The keys have a nice clacky sound that I like.
  • Cons: The volume controls randomly trigger. It's usually the keyboard muting your volume, which can get really frustrating if you're in the middle of a game, which is unfortunate since this is supposed to be a gaming keyboard. Gigabyte doesn't seem to care; if you search their official forums, you can ...

Not worth it

Daniel M., Newegg
3 September 2013
  • Summary: All of this occurred within 1 night. I returned it the next day. the RMA process was definitely not worth my time, so i would say pass up on this keyboard.
  • Pros: the pros on this keyboard are the antighosting features, macros and to me the wrist rest.
  • Cons: The cons, or con rather, certainly outweighed the pros. My keyboard multimedia keys were certainly way to sensitive but they began randomly activating without human interaction. This would mute/unmute, play/pause/stop, and increase/decrease volume at any given moment and eventually got so frequen...

Bad Keys (5-9)

Tyler G., Newegg
22 March 2012
  • Summary: Do not buy, just get a different keyboard without this useless "feature"
  • Pros: Keyboard is perfect if you have the hand pressure of a gorilla or you never have to press any key above 4.
  • Cons: The problem is that the keyboard is even designed to do this for some reason. It is a "feature" to have 1-4 easier to press down since obviously, they are used more during gaming. Besides the fact that this feature is useless to begin with, it seems all they did was make every number besides 1-4 ...

Ghost keyboard

Russ O., Newegg
7 April 2011
  • Summary: Not sure if I got a bad keyboard or what. But the keyboard configuration of the keys are not aligned normal this keyboard makes you feels like your gaming fingers are not lined up correctly. I tried and tried to get use to it but no dice. Kept getting killed over and over with this keyboard lag..
  • Pros: Very nice expensive looking box
  • Cons: Major Ghost Lagging

This does not even deserve 1 star

George Othen, Amazon
27 August 2012
  • Summary: I insist that you do not buy this keyboard, I paid £45 for this keyboard, biggest waste of £45 ever, within 3 months keys started to become unresponsive, the backlight is pointless as it only displays fully on certain keys, the 2 USB ports on either side where nice and if you actually care about any...

  • Excerpt: Купился на внешность, но в итоге клава оказалась полным отстоем.
  • Pros: 1. Подсветка 2. Нормальный размер клавиш 3. Силиконовый чехол на кнопки 4. Тихая 5. Подставка для рук 6. Внешний вид
  • Cons: А вот их на порядок больше: 1. Силиконовый чехол растянулся примерно за год, стало неудобно. Кроме того - он быстро пачкается. 2. Неудобный регулятор громкости, лучше бы обычное колёсико. 3. Неудобные кнопки макросов, довольно быстро стали плохо нажиматься. Софт для них ещё хуже. 4. В биосе не ра...

  • Pros: Клавиатура достаточно удобная приятных ход клавиш и хороший оплетеный провод, из достоинств боюсь все
  • Cons: а теперь о главном: софт для создания макросов кривой, сенсорный регулятор громкости не более чем бутафория(работает только в крайниз положениях да и изменяет громкость ужасно долго) в месте крепления клавиатуры к подставке по бокам плохие стыки, если работаешь за компом в свитере постоянно цепля...
