What is a gaming keyboard? Up until the release of the SteelSeries 6Gv2 it was clear that in order to be considered a "gaming" keyboard it had to in some way glowed in the dark. Don't take that the wrong way, we do like things that have lights and can be a bit flashy, but we don't believe that's what should define or set apart a keyboard for gaming. As we began to design the 6Gv2, we wanted to offer a keyboard that would do more than emulate the bridge console on the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and instead, we focused on raw performance and durability.

Experience: 78 Days


nice cherry black keys
responsive keys
no armrest
cheap mechanical keyboard that gets the job done

Experience: 7 Days


Solid mechanical keyboard, weight, feel
Non-standard layout
This keyboard is generally not bad for the price, however two really big gripes that I have with it relate to key layout (I wish I would have known this prior to purchase, but I didn't have the foresight to look closely at the layout):

1. Left windows key has been replaced with "function" key that CANNOT be re-mapped (it is hardcoded into the keyboard). I frequently use my left hand to hit the windows key for certain shortcuts such as show desktop. This key is now useless to me.

2. Right shift key is SHORT, wtf? There's an extra key beside the shift key (that usually goes above the flat enter key, but on this keyboard the enter key is shaped like a mirrored "L" so it wouldn't fit). So sometimes I hit that key instead of shift, and putting a question mark is definitely difficult. Usually it's Shift + key beside shift, but not anymore... now it's two keys away from the shift....

Otherwise I do like the feel of this keyboard.

Experience: 1 Weeks


-high quality all around
-very sturdy and well built
-will clearly outlive us all
-very simple, pleasing design, nothing unnecessary
-keypresses are crisp and reflexive
-no annoying LEDs or extra features/software
-not sure if I'd pay 85$ again for it
This is an amazing keyboard, but I don't know if it's 85$ amazing. And by that I mean I don't see how any keyboard anywhere could be worth 85$ or more. This thing is great to type on and play games with, but so was my 8$ Microsoft keyboard. Am I experiencing a 77$ difference? I'd say not really.
Still, top of the line keyboard. Would give five stars if not for the price.

Experience: 2 Years


-heavy resistance if your looking for it as these are black cherry keys
-very sturdy
-clean design
-non-standard layout, short shift and awkward enter key
-the large keys (shift, tab etc.) have gotten squeaky and unresponsive but i fixed that with some wd40.
i didnt realize when i bought it but the short shift and enter key make it awkward to type on and really just annoying. ive since learned much more about cherry keys and black are not exactly the best for gaming. for the first few weeks of using it i noticed my forearms would get fatigued and fingers hurt if i used it too long. if i had to recomend a keyboard id say to find cherry brown,red or blue in that order. as they all require less force to press and provide a much easier typing experience.

Experience: 28 Days


Nice and Comfortable with everyday use, gaming, type.
Black Switch
Not Free. :)
It's really nice keyboard for any purpose in this price range.
You can't beat Price : Performance it has.
Media control is also quite nice.

Experience: 20 Days


Black Switch
Nice look
Media Control Key
It is good for the price. (it was $70 on sale)
Even it's mechanical keyboard at that price with black switch.
You don't need to press the key as heavy as any other switch.
It has nice look and media control key which helps a lot.
Definitely would buy this again.

Experience: 3 Weeks


I love the sound it makes when I type something
I replaced my wireless Microsoft keyboard because it runs out of battery when I was in the middle of a CS match.

Got this great keyboard, and havet looked back since. The typing sound is just amazing.

Experience: 1 Days


Compact design + nice, solid construction. Very nice to type on.

Excellent product, so far it easily outperforms my previous (non-mechanical|) gaming keyboard.
Would recommend.

Experience: 3 Months

Comment: It's a review I've done myself and uploaded on youtube comparing both the Steelseries 6Gv2 and Razer Blackwidow!
Posted by: PanzerIV @02/10/11
Comment: 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.
