GIGABYTE GK-K6800 Professional Multimedia Keyboard Review

 

The days of the 104 key beige keyboard are over. This is evident by the amount of dust they accumulate at the surplus stores and are about as exciting as a stop sign. Comparing just about any…

We know there's not a lot of engineering that needs to go in to a multimedia keyboard to make it a good one. However, there are quite a few things you can leave out for whatever reason that would kill it before it even launched. There are no real short...

Today, we'll be taking a look at one of Gigabyte's latest multimedia keyboards, the GK-K6800. Despite entering a market dominated by peripheral greats such as Logitech and Razer, the GK-K6800 looks promising. Is the GK-K6800 the keyboard to bring...

Gigabyte GK-K6800 USB Keyboard Review

 

But most do not offer the ability to plug and go without the use of drivers or user setup programs. This is where the Gigabyte GK-K6800 does very well. For the price of a low end keyboard, you get a midgrade board with some pop. The multimedia keys...

For some users, a keyboard is nothing more than an afterthought, a single part that came bundled with a system. For others, choosing the right keyboard can be difficult. It's one of the two PC components that users physically interact with the...

The GK-K6800 has a somewhat firm feel to its keys, which make the board feel more expensive than it is. The keycaps are also textured and laser-engraved for durability. There are 14 multimedia buttons, which control the media player, launch...

Stylish good looks ; Price ; Volume adjustment WHEEL ; Doesn't take up a lot of desk real estate ; Surprisingly responsive and tactile response for a membrane keyboard

Life expectancy is years not decades ; No additional macro keys ; Less than optimal gaming keyboard ; Small function keys ; Membrane technology

When it comes to keyboards, run-of-the-mill units are a dime a dozen. However, the Gigabyte GK-K6800 bucks that trend. It looks like a

Review Re-write

 

This is a re-write. After calming down and taking a "chill pill" ie: beer, I realized I needed to actually review the product. Gigabyte, you guys make wonderful motherboards, I've never had an issue with them and my current one is going strong 6+ years...

Very nice looking, stupid to say but that was the first thing that attracted me to this product. Original keyboard is an $8 cheap-o which gets the job done but the added features like volume wheel, etc and the price I was sold

Both keyboards (I ordered 2) were uneven, like the plastic was warped. Each one would wobble while typing, extending the feet did nothing. The keys are recessed further down than I'm used to resulting in wrist pain after prolonged use ; The USB cord is...

Not too shabby!

 

Bought this back in 2010 while building my PC. Stayed strong until 2013 when I spilled water on it... After that it didn't want to work. A few months ago, I figured I'd give it another try, and lo and behold, it works just as well as the day I bought...

Cheap ; Volume Control and media buttons ; Keyboard LED lights match the LEDs in my PC case

Maybe its weight and size... but you get used to it rather quickly

I'm not buying another keyboard from gigabyte and considering how well the RMA process is going...and that it will just end with me being stuck with another junk product, I not likely to buy anything from this company again.

Love the look, sleek design and the extra functions buttons ; Too bad it's a cheap piece of garbage

The USB cord is half the length of my $8.00 keyboard that this thing was meant to replace. What's wrong Gigabyte? Couldn't afford me a few more inches ; Multiple keys do not register right out of the box. Spacebar and P key. I ordered two of them and...
