Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

 

Offering some interesting features we put the Osmium through its paces to see if it keeps up the high standard that Aivia/Gigabyte have set.

The Osmium is another quality product from Aivia. With a very high build quality, good software support and macro control. With USB 3.0 support the Osmium sets a high standard for mechanical gaming keyboards.

The Aivia Osmium is a solid gaming keyboard that lacks a few features but remains a good option. Read our full review to learn more.

This keyboard has a strong list of customization options, including five macro keys combined with five profiles

There isn't a gaming mode or dedicated media keys

With a few caveats, the Aivia Osmium is an excellent keyboard with decent customization options.

Motherboard vendor goes for a premium gaming experience with its latest mechanical keyboard

Responsive and quiet keys suited for gaming ; Premium design and feel

Brightness of logo and Num, Caps, and Scroll Lock keys can not be adjusted ; Scroll wheels feel loose and lack the keyboard’s overall polish

The Aivia Osmium is a great mechanical keyboard that works well during gameplay. However, a few small design niggles keep it from being perfect.

This premium mechanical gaming keyboard offers features galore and unmatched quality.

Mechanical Cherry MX Red key switches ; Lovely finish ; Built like a brick ; Class-leading connectivity

Aggressive rear slope can be uncomfortable ; Expensive

Another nice gaming touch on the Osmium are five keycaps with custom decals like a firebolt, lightning bolt, shield and puma-like face. A key removal tool is included so you can interchange these with any of the regularly shaped keys, especially handy...

Every feature you could want from a gaming keyboard, but you'll pay through the nose for it

Expert review by:

GIGABYTE Aivia Osmium Review

 

Can GIGABYTE's new mechanical keyboard, based around Cherry MX Red switches, impress at the premium end of the peripheral market?

Full size means minimal learning curve ; Cherry MX Red switches ; Blue backlight with variable brightness ; 5 Macro Keys ; Up-to five profiles ; Additional connectivity features

So, the GIGABYTE Aivia Osmium is a great performer with a few very interesting features. What does that mean for our overall verdict?

The keyboard decided to stop working just over a year after purchase. Bought on 8/12/13 if I remember correctly. First the lights started to flicker on and off, then it just quit on me. It was such a great keyboard while it worked. You would expect...
