SteelSeries 6Gv2 Mechanical keyboard

titleMechanical keyboards seem to be all the rage recently with almost every manufacture introducing them. SteelSeries has actually been in the mechanical keyboard market for a few years now with their 7G. To compete with all of the competition they did however introduce a model without a few of the 7G’s features like audio ports to lower the cost, which would be the 6Gv2. Priced a little more in line with the competition, SteelSeries’s 6Gv2 is hoping to show that you don’t need a keyboard that glows when the lights are out to game.

I have one. it's great. I came from a Rosewill RK-9000 which clicked. The 6g does not and that took some time to get use too. Love the keyboard and steelseries products.

Our second Steel Series review this week. Paired up with a Sensei this could be a good combo
