Summary: I've had my 6gv2 for a little over 5 years now, when they just came out (the MX Black version). It's still going strong. Just the other day I cleaned it like I do once every year. The keyboard looks 100% brand new.
Summary: If you are going to abuse the hell out of this keyboard, and don't really care about macro keys or backlights, wait for a sale and buy this.
Pros: Durable - This thing is freaking solid. If you have a habit of punching your keyboard after your noob teammates lose the game for you, this one can take the hit. Cherry MX Black Switches - These switches take marginally more force to press, reducing accidental presses and keeping fingers strong S...
Cons: Simple - No flashy lights or touch screens or any of that nonsense. For the price tag, you'd at least expect macro keys Size - Others have complained about the size, and it did take a while to get used to the keys being closer together. Constantly swapping between this keyboard and a laptop keybo...
Summary: Very solid keyboard. The keys are silent and they activate relatively early in the key press. There is no 'click' or breakpoint that you can feel, however the smoothness all the way through is something I actually like.
Summary: My review is for the Red Cherry keys version. This probably is a 5 star keyboard, but other reviews misled me to think I might like this one. The last time I bought a bunch of mechanical keyboards for work, 5 were Razer Ultimate models, a DAS, and a no-brand model.
Summary: It didn't come with a wrist rest, but that was easily fixed by picking up a cheap $5 one from the store. The keyboard has a strange size and layout so you cannot replace all of the keycaps if they break No backlighting, but I knew that when buying it.
Pros: I have used keyboards mainly rubber dome keyboards and chiclet keyboards, but I decided to get myself a mechanical keyboard at last. 1. Very Sturdy, almost no flex to it 2. Cherry MX Blacks feel great, a bit stiff compared to what I was used to but I got used to it within a week, enough resistanc...
Summary: im on my 3rd 6Gv2 this year. first keyboard - the keypad 3 stopped working and the D key would stick. example "The dddddog likes to jump." second keyboard - the W key stopped working after a week. fingers crossed for lucky number 3.

Summary: Keyboard feels solid and durable. Only thing that really bummed me is it had no backlight. I mean cmon 20 dollar keyboards nowadays have backlight standard but a 100 dollar keyboard with no light whatsoever makes it seem like it cost 10 dollars to make and they charge 100.whatever steel series, just...
Years of experience on 4 mechanical keyboards, it's okay but it's not the best option around

Summary: The Steel Series 6gv2 is a solid board, it is study and well built. The keycaps are somewhat poor, they are very prone to falling off as they are not held on tight. If you travel with it you may lose keys.
