Gigabyte Force K7 Stealth Gaming Keyboard ReviewPosted on 2013-09-26 15:15:41 by Thomas De Maesschalck
In the office today we have the latest gaming peripheral from Gigabyte, the Force K7 stealth gaming keyboard. Gigabyte may be better known for their graphics cards and motherboards, but I'm sure many of you also know that they make some truly epic peripherals too and while not all of them are gaming focused they've still gone on to win plenty of awards for their keyboards and mice, not just from eTeknix either, but from many publications around the world, especially for their popular Aivia range.
The model we are looking at today may not be as prestigious as their Aivia range, but given that it is priced at a modest £40 I was hardly expecting royalty. That being said, £40 for a keyboard is still a firm investment and for that kind of money you still expect a good quality product in return for your investment. While obviously at this price range it doesn't feature mechanical keys, it does offer an alternative to the often cheaper membrane switch by using scissor switch keys, which some may regard as a mixture of both membrane and mechanical, often typical of what you find on good quality notebooks. The keyboard packs a nice feature set such as dedicated controls for back-lighting and volume, shortcut keys, a braided cable, scissor switch keys, anti-ghosting capability around the WASD cluster and it promises it all just £40, so let's get straight to it and take a closer look at what the Force K7 has to offer.
