Speaking of keys, the use of Cherry Black MX models means we have proven technology used here, they feel nice to type on and will very much appeal to those who don't like the "clicky" sound of other boards. SteelSeries also add anti-ghosting to the features available which of course very much helps us when playing fast paced FPS titles where multiple key presses are the norm.
Looking a little closer at the design we of course see that there is no USB pass-through, or audio which further emphasises the no-frills design.
Value wise the 6Gv2 is a high quality mechanical model to a price point which will be very attractive to gamers and that was clearly the aim SteelSeries were going for when designing the product. The only minor issue is that Razer offer their standard BlackWidow (an alternate mechanical model) which has some extra gaming keys/configuration at a slightly lower price point.
No fancy lights, macros, remapping or ports. The SteelSeries 6Gv2 simply offers an exceptionally high quality mechanical keyboard experience for a price which matches other high end traditional gaming boards.
