Once we extract the Osmium from the packaging we find a full sized keyboard with a full number pad. The Osmium measures in at 454mm x 257mm x 45mm (LxWxH) and weighs in at 1500g. The Cherry RED mechanical switches supplied with the Osmium have a switch life of 50 million key presses and have a travel distance of 4mm with an activation distance of 2mm and offer a peak force of 45g.

Turning the Osmium over we find four retractable feet that have rubberised non slip stoppers on them to ensure that the keyboard stays secure on our desktop. The full sized wrist rest simply clips onto the bottom of the Osmium and can be easily removed if we do not require it.

Looking closer at the key configuration of the Osmium we find that it features a standard layout found on most full sized keyboards. Between the main body of the keys and the full sized number pad we have the arrow keys as well as the home/end key set. In the top right hand corner of the keyboard we have the Aivia brand name as well as the indicators for number lock, caps lock and scroll lock.

At the top left of the keyboard we find that there are five custom macro keys that we can configure using the GHOST macro engine supplied directly from the Gigabyte web site. There are also two independent scroll wheels that allow us to control the illumination brightness and the volume. If we want to switch off the illumination we just need to click the scroll wheel down.

The Osmium features both a standard USB 2.0 and a super speed USB 3.0 port. Next to the USB 3.0 port we also find microphone-in and earphone-in 3mm ports. These are located on the right hand edge of the keyboard.

The USB cable provided with the Osmium is approx. 2.0m in length and is braided for extra durability. All of the connectors provided with the Osmium are 18k gold plated for optimum signal transfer. There is a USB 2.0 which provides power to the keyboard and allows for the USB 2.0 port through as well as a specific USB 3.0 connector and the microphone and earphone 3mm connectors.
