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.
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.
Keyboard layout is pretty weird. if you want custom keycaps
24 February 2015
Summary: Keyboard layout is pretty weird. if you want custom keycaps, you're gonna have to look for quite a while as the enter key is oddly shaped. Other than that and the no left windows button (which sucks for me as Arma 3 Mods sometimes need this) it's perfect.
Summary: I don't like how they moved the "\" button and extended the enter button, but the feel of the keyboard itself is quite nice. Good punch on the keys, it has a bounce but also feels very smooth and soft. I don't get to type on it for long, but when I do type on it, I enjoy it.
Summary: Beautiful keyboard. Pleasure to type and game on. Very sturdy and simplistic in design. I also love hearing the sound when i get ramped up and start typing. Note it is a lil' noisy, but you're looking at mechanical keyboards for a reason. Would recommend.

Summary: I have tried many mechanical keyboards but this one is great for FPS games. This keyboard is a good choice if you want a full-size keyboard and just the basics. Please read the cons below before purchasing. Red switches (The only way to go if you play FPS games).
Summary: Built like the proverbial brick outhouse, you could seriously hurt somebody with this thing. She's solid! The keys have a good feel to them with a nice click for each button press. So why not five stars?
