The SteelSeries 6Gv2 is billed as a gaming keyboard from a gaming accessories company, and that agent shows through in a few architecture decisions that, depending on what we were doing, we begin either advantageous or absolutely annoying. As far as the keyboard's feel goes, no complaints actuality – this is a accepted Cherry MX Black keyboard.
We did apprehension that we would occasionally blazon with the edges of the keys rather than the face, but not absolutely to the aforementioned admeasurement as on the Adesso MKB-135B. The capital aberration from the added keyboards was in the layout. Specifically, the abridgement of a left-side Windows key. That's to anticipate you from accidentally hitting that key while you're arena a Windows bold in which you can't attenuate it.
The affection absolutely comes in accessible while we're arena games, but we're one of the attenuate association that absolutely uses the left-hand Windows key for its associated keyboard shortcuts. After application this keyboard for the bigger allotment of a week, we still hadn't gotten acclimated to acute the Windows key with our appropriate hand.
Instead of a left-hand Windows key, the SteelSeries 6Gv2 has a SteelSeries-logo key that acts as a modifier for the left-hand action keys. Those keys bifold as basal media controls (Volume Up/Down/Mute, Pause/Play, and Skip Forward/Back), and can appear in accessible if you are managing your playlist midgame. Unfortunately, the SteelSeries 6Gv2 doesn't accept best of the account begin in the added automated keyboards we reviewed.
It does not accept added USB ports or an audio passthrough jack. In fact, it does not alike accept anxiety that prop up the aback of the keyboard, admitting back it is lying collapsed on your desktop, it does sit at a little bit of an bend compared with the added keyboards.
