SteelSeries 6Gv2 review

 

The keyboard citing multiple key presses as its speciality has gamers in its sights

Great build quality ; Can record 104 simultaneous key presses ; Mechanical keys ; Easy to clean

Not ergonomic ; Lacks additional keys

This pro gaming keyboard helps avoid ghosting in videogames with its multiple key presses, but is uncomfortable for typing

SteelSeries 6Gv2 review

 

The SteelSeries 6Gv2 is billed as a gaming keyboard from a gaming accessories company, and that origin shows through in a few design decisions that, depending on what we were doing, we found either useful or really annoying.

All in all, the SteelSeries 6Gv2 is a decent model at a decent price, but unless you hate your Windows key with a passion you might want to look elsewhere.

Instead of having a membrane underneath the keys which makes contact with a conductive layer below when a key is pressed to register each keystroke, mechanical-switch keyboards have individual, physical switches under each key. This leads to precise...

SteelSeries 6G V2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

 

We recently took a look at Razer's first attempt at a mechanical gaming keyboard which left us with mainly positive impressions.  Throughout our review we compared it to SteelSeries' existing mechanical keyboard, the 7G, which has been around for a...

Great value for a mechanical keyboard ; Cherry MX Black switches ; Built to withstand nuclear war ; Classic no-frills design

Lack of dedicated multimedia buttons ; No integrated macro support

SteelSeries 6GV2 Review

 

Incredible build quality, excellent mechanical switches

Lack of extra features, short right shift key makes typing difficult

If the SteelSeries 6Gv2 looks familiar to you, it’s probably because you’re already familiar with the 7G, SteelSeries’ flagship mechanical-key keyboard. SteelSeries didn’t update the 7G this year, and it’s still the company’s top-of-the-line model. The...
