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

 

Great keyboard for the cost works well with gaming and general use. It did take some time to adjust to the smaller keys, specifically the tiny backspace key (about 2 weeks).

Very inexpensive, useful media keys

smaller keys in general, small Backspace key

Great Inexpensive Keyboard

 

I own several of these keyboards and have not had trouble with any of them. I especially like the volume knob as it makes quick sound adjustments simple and convenient. Often I find it better to use the keyboard then to fumble around which program is...

Very inexpensive, Reliable, Lots of Cool Buttons

A little bulky. If you need a thinner keyboard, look elsewhere. While the function keys are awesome the ones on the left and right sides of the keyboard are a little hidden. I had to show them to people to get them to start using them

Consumer review by:

great for the money

 

its the best $16 keyboard i've ever owned, if you're not using it for serious gaming, you won't be disappointed

Its a keyboard, The media buttons are handy if you're into that sort of thing. what i like about it is after 2 years there is only minimal fading on the keys, and its survived water spills twice! i've ordered 4 of these keyboards now, they're great

the usb connector seems to be slightly loose, not a huge issue unless you like having the keyboard in your lap, as even a small amount of tugging seems to disconnect them
