Tank-bred built to last

Caio Menescal, Amazon

  • Summary: The most robust piece of computer gear I've seen in my life. I used a 6Gv2 with red switches for over two years and thought that buying its successor would be a good idea, and it was.

  • Summary: Got it for $99.99 33% off!! Really good keyboard, handrest is comfortable, hubs on the back are really useful despite it's USB 1.0
  • Pros: Silence keyboard., Easy to clean., Steelseries support is awesome if any problem comes.
  • Cons: Converter from PS/2 to USB hub is a bit flawed, USB 1.0??? Come on... :(, Lots of wires.

  • Summary: The keyboard is very good for the people who don't want unnecessary features like backlights and macros on their keyboard but still want a mechanical keyboard. Seen many keyboards ruined because of the glossy finish that is just a fingerprint magnet, but this one is matte black.
  • Pros: -Sturdy and heavy, -Comfortable wrist-rest, -Mic and headphone jacks, -USB hub, -No unnecessary features
  • Cons: -USB 1.1 hub, -Not great for typing

  • Summary: The 7G should not be bought if you are expecting it to be a board for daily use. I'd much prefer Cherry MX switches in blue, brown, and especially red for a better "overall" keyboard.
  • Pros: -Excellent keyboard for games, especially FPS where minute movement are important, -Standard fare of N-key-rollover over PS2, and 6 key-rollover in USB... just like any most other Cherry MX keyboard by Costar, -Minimalistic, clean, no annoying "gamer" look to the board with a billion LEDs, no unn...
  • Cons: -Not that great of a keyboard for typing, takes too much force to press down on each key (but may still be preferable to many sloppy rubber dome keyboards out there), -The 3 lock indicators are too bright, this was fixed in the 6GV2, -Wrist rest takes up too much desk space, -The audio and headph...

  • Summary: Bought at $89.99, I can't complain too much since this seems to be the lowest price ever on NCIX. However I wouldn't pay the regular $124.39 for this keyboard. I think the Metadot Das Professional (PM direct canada or best direct) is a better deal.
  • Pros: - Black cherry keys make typing as enjoyable as it can ever be, - High quality build, - Wrist rest looks ugly but is extremely comfortable when typing, - At $89.99 sale price it's a good deal
  • Cons: - Keyboard layout, - LED indicator way too bright, - Lack of macro keys contradicts the claim of being a "gaming keyboard"

Keystroking at it's finest...

John Hernandez, Amazon
23 April 2010
  • Summary: Love this new keyboard by Steelseries, however takes some time to get used to. The keys feel like no other keyboard, and if there is any problem with this keyboard it's the keys are ultra sensitive.

  • Summary: This keyboard comes equipped with linear (black) cherry mechanical switches; these type of switches are neither springy nor spongy, and provide no tactile feedback. I highly recommend that you demo this keyboard to see if the key feel and travel is right for you.
  • Pros: The keyboard is pretty much top-quality and better than my last one (Dell crap). All the switches use gold-plated connectors for higher sensitivity and faster response. The keys have perfect resistance. Basically this keyboard is a monster of durability, and if you don't pour Coke on it, it will ...
  • Cons: Overprice

  • Summary: This keyboard give an outstanding touch feeling and just for that I think I would buy again, but the price is just really too high for most people. Just some fanatic freak, like me, dont mind put all this money into a keyboard.
  • Pros: The touch feeling is outstanding, Simple design (for those who like that)
  • Cons: Overpriced, USB 1.1, No back light

  • Summary: For people used to the old IBM keyboards, this one will make you fell right at home. It's incredibly well built, quite a change from the Microsoft/Razor Reclusa and Logitech G15. If you need backlighting, macro keys, and advanced media keys, this is not the keyboard for you!
  • Pros: Built like a tank, perfect form factor, no gimmicks.
  • Cons: Cheap wrist rest, price (but you can price match).

Great keyboard

Paul Arthorne, Amazon
28 June 2010
  • Summary: Great solid mechanical keyboard. The keys are a bit glossy and do not have a real solid feel to the action compared to the Coolermaster CM storm keyboard I have with Cherry MX Blue switches. Pros: They keys have a nice action and are also quiet which is what I wanted.
