For quite some time the gaming keyboard market has concentrated on products which add macro buttons, re-assignments, profiles, USB and audio pass-through and weighted key actions to enhance the gaming experience. In addition to this we see branded products such as the Razer StarCraft 2 gear and SteelSeries Medal of Honor products however few manufacturers have looked to release high quality mechanical keyboards for the gaming masses.
There have been a few though and these have clearly made an impact with gamers as we are regularly seeing manufacturers launch their own mechanical gaming models. One manufacturer which has historically offered mechanical keyboards for gamers is SteelSeries and they are now back with a new model, the 6Gv2 which we have connected to our system today.
Packaging and Bundle
SteelSeries package the 6Gv2 in a box not much bigger than the keyboard itself. We get a clear image of the product on the front with features listed elsewhere and inside the board is protected by layers of cardboard. Bundled with the keyboard is a USB to PS/2 convertor, sticker and product documentation.
