First off, let me start off by saying "wow", this is a sturdy looking - and feeling - keyboard. It is phenomenal and I'm overall impressed by its quality. According to the company this keyboard is made out of aluminum, and it certainly looks it. It is sleek, sharp, and tough. I have no complaints in regards to its quality. The keys themselves feel smooth and the font is much more sophisticated than most gaming keyboards. I'm not sure why but when it comes to most gaming stuff, designers seem to opt for the blocky, "in your face", bold text. This one takes a different path and I love the result. A quiet and appealing design that does not scream for attention, attention that I believe should be reserved for the whole keyboard and, to an effect, the RGB lighting. Bravo in this aspect.
The RGB itself is very nice and sharp. It is clear at 25-100% and I have had no faulty LED’s. Of course it has only been a few weeks since I’ve made this purchase, so there’s still time for that to change. As with the Corsair, and the ultimate reason why I decided to try out a new keyboard, at 100% LED brightness the keyboard emits a high-pitched humming sound. After getting 3 Corsair’s replaced and eventually moving on to this one, I’ve concluded that most RGB gaming keyboards have this humming issue. If not, then maybe I’m just unlucky, but I’m not going to bother sending in a ticket to get this one replaced. Just be on the “look”-out for this humming. I am bothered a little bit by the fact that the volume display (the scroll) is a static colour and can’t be changed. When your keyboard is trying to show off its fantastic RGB’s and a red bar decides it wants to remain just that, it’s... plain ugly. There’s no other word for it.
G-keys are always appreciated and, compared to the Corsair K70 LUX, the GSkill actually comes with them. I purchased the Corsair at roughly the same price as the GSkill, so the GSkill ends up being the better deal if you’re in the market for G-keys. I didn’t think I was so opted for the Corsair originally, but now I’m not looking back.
In regards to the Cherry MX keys themselves: I purchased the Blues and previously had Browns. I love the Blues way more than I ever did the Browns. Essentially, if you want a little “push back”, get the Blues. They give a tactile, very clicky, feeling along with high audible feedback, while the Browns only provide a light tactile, non-clicky feel (and no audile feedback). I couldn’t, for the life of me, get over the fact that I wasn’t receiving any keystroke feedback, so buying a Cherry MX Blue keyboard has been a very satisfying purchase. I highly recommend going to your local Best Buy and trying out the different varieties of Cherry’s and Membranes.
The handles on either side of the keyboard feel out of place, however, and they do get in the way of precious desk space. My keyboard space is fairly limited and I like having my phone on the left side and mouse on the right side; space is precious. Having those two handlebars jut out and invade my area kind of bothers me: I have no clue why they designed the keyboard that way. Obviously it’s not a soul crushing flaw, so I’m not docking much off for that personal flaw.
Software is a big reason as to why people purchase a gaming keyboard, and personally, while many have complained about it, I have had no issues with it. I am able to change the LED brightness, the colours, the design and appearance, and program the keys. I have no complaints in this regard.
This is obviously a personal gripe, but after doing some research I found that this keyboard was made in Thailand - previously in China - so that was an "eh" factor considering the Corsair K70 LUX is made in Germany. If I'm wrong about that information though, please let me know! Anyway, stuff in China/Thailand is not worse, per say, but it is definitely not on the same level as Germany. If this keyboard was made in Germany it would be absolutely perfect, but we can’t have it all.
Overall I am impressed by this keyboard. I love its many features and it offers a whole new way of gaming. Would I purchase from this company again? Sure, I would. It’s reliable and I never knew I could be this excited about a keyboard after being previously disappointed by a personal favourite brand. It offers amazing “bang for buck” and I am quite pleased with what I got.
Because it's so sturdy though, it was a little bigger than I had imagined, but that won't be an issue once I get used to it. I've read the reviews about software issues, but I have not run into any in my usage yet. If I ever do, I will update this review.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this! Yeah it's a little pricey, but definitely worth shelling out for.
As for the actual functioning of the keyboard, it works, and seems to be decent/high quality. I don't think it will break. Oh, also, you can plug your headset into it which is good because the keyboard takes up two USB slots, so really you aren't losing one. (it also has aux audio/mic inputs)
Keys feel fine, though after more than one month I still mistype, coming from a membrane, slim keyboard. A design flaw, prevents you from seeing the symbols for caps lock and scroll lock from your normal position - you'll have to lean forward to see them, because they're obstructed by the numpad / and * keys.
And that's where the good news ends. The software is ok for setting lighting schemes for your keyboard. At least as long as there's only one user configured for your desktop. The moment a second user logs in, they're greeted with the default rainbow pattern (which I figure is more like display mode, because I can't imagine anyone working with a keyboard like that).
The software also manages macros, but macro editing is extremely poorly done. It's like a human being at G.Skill never tried to use that functionality. But that matters little, because even if you record macros, the keyboard doesn't remember them. They'll show up later in the editor, but never under normal usage (i.e. when you need them). And this issue is not on the software, I tried not loading it on startup and letting the keyboard just use the on-board memory - didn't do the trick.
Supposedly there are 3 profiles to manage, each having 3 modes. All the trouble above is just when using 2 mode and a single profile. I dare not venture beyond that.
And yes, I'm talking here about the latest software and firmware available atm.
I got this on sale for less than $100 and I still feel I overpaid. But other mechanical keyboards are even more ridiculously priced, so there's that.
