I've enjoyed using the keyboard and I like the type of mechanical keys it uses. I would have liked to know before hand that the actual size of the keys seems to be a bit smaller than the standard keys from any other keyboard I have. This shrinks the length of the keyboard down, which may be good for some with limited space, but I have fairly big hands and I would have rather just had full sized keys. The smaller keys take a bit of getting used to, to not fumble words and make typos. I would recommend it still, despite the smaller keys if I hadn't had issues with the keyboard locking up / shutting off, forcing a physical unplug / replug before getting it to work, several times.
this keyboard is awesome! it better be awesome if you have to pay so much for it! red switches are very nice they are very light, i just cant get enough from the bottom-out sounds, i need to keep typing lol
Overall I'm very happy with this keyboard. It's very pleasant to type and game with and would recommend this to anyone who needs a keyboard for work and play. One potential issue that others may run into though is that the audio connectors are attached together with the USB connectors so you can't reach any of the expansion slots where your sound card is located.
This is my second mechanical keyboard, and the first keyboard that I truly admire the most. Unlike Corsair's offerings (K60 and K90), this keyboard features the same Cherry MX Red switches, however this keyboard does not cheap out with partial dome switch nonsense, it's all 100% mechanical here. I also liked that the software GIGABYTE has provided does not boot from startup, so it's not intrusive at all.
I have had this keyboard for about 3 days and I must say what a difference it makes in every day use. The keys feel so nice to type on. Some prefer blues/browns for typing but for me I think this is the best of both worlds if you game and type on your keyboard. I find the Black switches to be very noisy compared to the reds, thats why I chose this one instead. I have switched from my logitech g15 v2 and what a difference. BUY THIS! You will not regret it.Best purchase I have made so far as for a good gaming keyboard.
This is an amazing keyboard to me. I needed one and first bought a Mionix Zibal 60. But a few hours after buying it, I realize the existence and availability of this new Gigabyte offering. Since the Osmuim was offering 1 USB 3 port and up to 25 possible macros for the same price range, I decided to return the Mionix and order this one. I do not regret my move at all, the back-lit lightning is better on this one as all the letters and numbers are completely lighted VS the Zibal where some of the keys where half lighted. Love the two rubber wheels for the back-lit & volume adjustment. The on-keyboard USB 3 port is for me a great feature since my PC USB 3 slots are located at the back of it and not available on the front panel, this keyboard is now providing me a way to use my USB 3 flash drive without having to move from my chair.
Also, since this keyboard has a on-board memory chip, the back-lit adjustment is not lost when rebooting, and your macro are stored on the keyboard itself, so your macros will be following you even if you plug it into another PC. I did get nervous when I first plug it in and realized that the Aivia panel was flashing even when the computer was powered off, but this was something that could be activated/disabled with the Ghost utility.
