- 18K-Gold plated mechanical switches and USB connectors
- Features SteelSeries Media Controls
- Durable metal inner chassis
The SteelSeries 6Gv2, modeled after the award winning SteelSeries 7G keyboard, is the lower priced mechanical keyboard that improves the user's ability to obtain more actions per minute than any other keyboard on the market.
The SteelSeries G Series Keyboards redefine "anti-ghosting" features by supporting as many simultaneous key presses as there are keys on the keyboard. The SteelSeries 6Gv2 features both PS/2 and gold-plated USB connectors as well as 18K gold-plated mechanical switches. Its increased response times and extreme durability make the
SteelSeries 6Gv2 the ultimate keyboard option for gamers.

Reviews from the Web
Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.
The 6Gv2 is two thirds the price of its big brother and performs the same and does away with a few luxuries. Based on this I would have to recommend the 6Gv2 over the 7G because I like to spend less where I can, but you should decide for yourself which is the better deal.

I find this keyboard VERY comfortable to type on as I switched from a cheap membrane keyboard. Even when I'm typing at the wrong height it's still more comfortable. The Cherry MX Black switches are a bit hard to press down and get used to, but it helps in the long run as it's harder to accidentally press the wrong keys or two keys at once. I would recommend getting the Red keys though if your finger strength isn't that strong though, (I'm a pianist and a guitarist so I'm good. You do learn to not bottom out the keys, but the spacebar still sounds a lot louder than the rest of the keyboard. Overall great buy especially since I got employee pricing.
I bought this keyboard mainly for the fact that it is a mechanical keyboard. I also bought it because it's a clean keyboard and I got really surprised how a mechanical keyboard can improve your typing speed! Very good purchase.
This is my first mechanical keyboard and I have to say - I'm disappointed in manufacturers switching over to that crappy membrane !h#$. This is what keyboards should be, much like most technology, a non-disposable tool. And a shame that consumers accept the $0.99 mouse and keyboard combo with their computer bundle - only to toss the POS to the curb after it kicks out. The IBM Model M [a mechanical] is still being bought up like hotcakes because of its design and durability.
