Benchmark Reviews
17 July 2010
  • Conclusion: In this section I am going to write a brief five point summary on the following categories; Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality and Value. These views are my own and help me to give the SteelSeries 7G Mechanical Gaming Keyboard a rating out of 10. A high or low score does not necessarily mean that it is better or worse than a similar gaming keyboard that has been reviewed by another writer here at Benchmark Reviews, which may have got a higher or lower...

Steelseries 7G Keyboard

26 August 2008
  • Excerpt: A few minor flaws aside, the SteelSeries 7G is a truly spectacular piece of hardware. Almost completely devoid of amenities, this keyboard was designed from the ground up to prevent keyboard lockup—the effect that suspends all input if you inadvertently press too many buttons at once. Lockup is essentially a death sentence for competitive gamers.
  • Pros: We couldn’t lock this keyboard up. Great action on a classic keyboard layout.
  • Cons: Barebones. Very loud. Extremely expensive. USB ports only support 1.1 speeds.

Steelseries 7G

  • Conclusion: The 7G is a fantastic keyboard, lets just get that straight. Sure it might not come packing a billion macro keys, ok it doesn’t have any, but that’s not necessary for everyone; I for one almost never use them. It does though have media keys which are easily activated and seamlessly integrated into a standard keyboard making the 7G a very compact and concise peripheral.
  • Pros: High quality construction, Concise structure and layout, Very low latency key presses, Great to type on, No bloated software or firmware
  • Cons: Lacks macro keys, Wrist rest should lock in to keyboard

Steelseries 7G

6 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Input devices are usually the last thing people think about when they are spec'ing up their new rig. We can spend hours researching the latest data for graphics cards or motherboards, but when it comes to input devices we tend to do one of two things. Either we migrate the hardware we already own across to the new machine, which is what most people tend to do. Or, if we're looking for a little flash and flair we might consider looking at a new mouse.

SteelSeries 7G

13 August 2012
  • Summary: Die 7G ist trotz magerer Ausstattung der wahr gewordene Traum aller Zocker. Der lineare Anschlag der MX Black Switches lässt die Herzen sämtlicher Shooter-Spieler schneller schlagen. Darüber hinaus wissen Verarbeitungsqualität und Schreibkomfort auf der ganzen Linie zu gefallen. Lediglich der hohe Verkaufspreis trübt das Gesamtbild etwas. Christoph meint: 1A Mech-Tastatur!
  • Pros: hochwertige Verarbeitungsqualität, abnehmbare Handballauflage, linearer und relativ leiser Anschlag (MX Black), ein paar Multimedia-Tasten, Anti-Ghosting, Kopfhörer- und Mikrofonanschluss, USB 2.0 Hub (2x)
  • Cons: keine Makros und Profile, teuer
