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.

Almost Perfect

Mitchel W., Newegg
8 December 2012
  • Summary: This is a problem with all mechanical keyboards; they are loud, so I bought O-rings that soften the bottoming out and dampen the sound. This keyboard would be perfect if you could change the LED color/brightness, the delete and return keys were standard sizes, and lettering was either laser engraved...
  • Pros: This is my first mechanical keyboard and I love it. Typing on cherry black switches is extremely satisfying and this is one of the few mechanical keyboards with a generous ramp. My weak fingers took a few days of getting used to the stiffer cherry black keys. The PS2 cable is great, and I like th...
  • Cons: I must stress that this keyboard is almost perfect. It really should be 4.5 stars, and these are my minor preferences. The small delete key is somewhat hard to hit, and you can't replace the uncommon return key. The lettering on the keys is raised and sometimes confuses the fingers looking for th...

Fantastic piece of hardware

Anonymous, Newegg
22 July 2012
  • Summary: Let me sum it up IMO: If you're an FPS player, this is the best keyboard out there. I have played in several high level competitions for games such as Quake, UT, CoD, etc. and can tell you undoubtedly that this will change your gaming experience for the better.
  • Pros: Sturdy Minimalist Look (If you prefer it, which I do) Has stood the test of time Amazing keystrokes PS/2 Port USB/Audio ports Thick, braided wiring
  • Cons: Hand wrest just lays over the keyboard, does not clip to it Cannot charge things through the USB ports The Windows key is on the right side of the keyboard

  • 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"

Solid Overall keyboard.

Victor H., Newegg
2 July 2010
  • Summary: I'd say the keyboard does it job, but could definitely offer MORE. It feels very nice and functionality wise, it has no compromises, but for its quality not so much. As I've said, only after a month of gaming/general usage, its paint and keys are already showing signs of wear, while my other older...
  • Pros: A very lowprofile gaming keyboard, no need for flashiness to prove its purpose. Anti-ghosting is awesome and the closer additional hub makes it alittle easier to use your other peripherals (mouse, mic, usb devices, headphones, etc.) despite it being 1.0 usb. Does its job and is the best keyboard ...
  • Cons: I've had this keyboard for alittle over a month now and maybe its product description is a tad over the top. -Certain random keys i rarely use outside of gaming ("F" and "C" keys especially) are already getting that "polished" look from pressing it too many times. I've never pressed them nearly a...

  • Pros: Very soild nice keyboard, feels like it could be thrown on the ground over and over again and it still work. Looks sleek, clean and very nice. Love the headphone and mic jack on this beacuse the Steel Series 5h v2 has a 2 foot cord and then the extention cord is like 10 feet.
  • Cons: I was a little upset that this is 140 dollars...it is such a nice keyboard but its it really isnt anything extra, its just well made....but it should just be 100 dollars. The wrist rest...cant tell if I like it or not. I kind of like the extra space without it.

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.
