Mechanical Perfection in the 6Gv2 SteelSeries Keyboard

                The 6Gv2 mechanical keyboard by SteelSeries looks like other standard IBM compatible keyboards at first glance.  Visually, the difference is the replacement of the lower left Windows key with a special SteelSeries function key that can be utilized to activate the media functions assigned to the F1 through F6 keys.  This has been done so that when an individual is in game, they do not accidently depress the Windows key that can cause the window to be minimized.  Yet, that is where the similarities end between modern standard consumer keyboards and mechanical prowess of the 6Gv2.  Read more

Free Yourself From Contracts With FreedomPop Review
