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...

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...

GIGABYTE GK-K6800

 

First couple of months, it was fine. After that... it went all downhill. It is possibly the worst keyboard and mouse combo I've ever had, and I've had a few! I hate to bash on you guys, I'm a avid customer of Gigabyte... My current PC has the H77 DS3H...

Nice volume wheel

Oh where do I start ; See other thoughts

Consumer review by:

Praise the mighty wheel

 

I want one. Stuck with a standard dell keyboard. :( Well good thing I planning to do an upgrade :)

As other reviewers said, you will become extremely dependent on that wheel nob/dial to control your system volume. (Brother greatly loves it)

Backspace button wee bit small
