Steelseries 7G Keyboard


A few minor flaws aside, the SteelSeries 7G is a truly spectacular piece of hardware.

We couldn’t lock this keyboard up. Great action on a classic keyboard layout

Barebones. Very loud. Extremely expensive. USB ports only support 1.1 speeds

We should also mention that this is one of the loudest keyboards we’ve tested in recent memory. Although SteelSeries describes the 7G’s keys as no-click, they’re certainly not quiet. The other thing we need to touch on is the 7G’s price -- this is an...

Steelseries 7G Gaming Keyboard Review


The cherry of my fingers.

Cherry MX keys, superb typing experience, sturdy, Gold plated switches, audio ports

expensive, no macro keys

As such, I believe the Steelseries 7G is specifically targeted towards ‘pro-gamers’, those who are into extreme competitive gaming and are in need of a compact, no fuss keyboard that will allow them to issue commands at blistering speeds, no questions...

SteelSeries 7G Pro Gaming Keyboard


As 2009 comes to a close we are going to take some time and get familiar with the SteelSeries 7G Pro gaming keyboard. The first thing to note is that if you are looking for a high quality mechanical style keyboard that is going to work flawlessly for...

Excellent build quality ; Very responsive keys ; Comfortable even during long game sessions ; 2 additional USB ports and headset inputs ; Gold plated switches and connectors

A bit expensive for many ; No backlighting of the keyboard (very minor IMHO)

Well Christmas has come and gone for another year, and none too soon from where we sit. 2009 proved to be a messy year from many different perspectives. We have now spent close to 2 weeks with the SteelSeries 7G and can honestly say that it makes...

Product Specifications

SteelSeries 7G sets new industry standards for gaming keyboards by allowing users to perform the most detailed and advanced key combinations to date. By utilizing the most powerful PS/2 buffer-system ever created for a gaming keyboard, SteelSeries 7G redefines "anti-ghosting" by supporting as many simultaneous key presses as there are keys on the keyboard. The keyboard features both PS/2 and USB connectors. The use of PS/2 (combined with a gold-plated USB connector) and 18K gold-plated mechanical switches, means that SteelSeries 7G offers more Actions Per Minute than any other keyboard in the world, gaming grade response times and more than six times the durability of a traditional keyboard. SteelSeries 7G is equipped with audio ports for headphone-in and microphone-out and features two USB ports. The keyboard furthermore features SteelSeries Media Controls essential for gaming, allowing the user quick access to volume, mute and other audio controls.
