Gigabyte Aivia K8100

 

The Gigabyte Aivia K8100 will light up your gaming experience with a bold and sporty keyboard.

Interesting design. Nice typing experience. Can create up to 5 different profiles. Touch volume control. Backlit keys. Easy to use software. Plug-and-play capabilities

No media keys. Macro buttons are stiff and out of the way. Cannot customize anything outside of the five macro buttons

Lastly, Gigabyte included extra WASD keys and a handy keycap puller to swap out these heavily-used keys after extended periods of use. They also threw in a silicone keyboard protector, braided cord, and a two-way cord holder.

Quick Review: GIGABYTE Aivia K8100 Gaming Keyboard

 

GIGABYTE enters the gaming keyboard market with a flashy new look. But can the K8100 deliver the functionality that gamers desire?

The black version of the K8100 will set you back $69.99 at Newegg, while the red version will cost you ten dollars more. I couldn't find the yellow version in stock at any retailers I checked out. This is a fairly nice price for all of the options and...

Inspired by the design of luxury sports cars, the Aivia introduces new features to the gaming keyboard market. See what they are.

Sleek design ; Great typing experience ; Precise response during gaming sessions ; Easy to use software ; Silicon cover ; Extra WASD cluster ; Tool for extracting keys for replacement and cleaning ; Detachable wrist rest

Programmable buttons too far away from the regular keys ; USB port lateral placement begs for more tableroom

A new challenger enters the arena.

So what we have here is a solid first entry into the gaming keyboard market by Gigabyte. The Aivia is a decent looking, practical keyboard with a lot of attention to detail. The only thing I can complain about is the fact that it has no audio ports,...

Unique styling and nifty features on this keyboard.

Aesthetically speaking, the K8100 Aivia just oozes style to say the least, and the fact that it comes in three different colours to suit your needs is great. I still think the yellow version looks like a Lamborghini. Functionally, the keyboard ...

Today we have Gigabyte's latest gaming keyboard on our desk. This is no ordinary board though because as well as looking at the features gamers want, the design department has been let loose again to create a shell which certainly stands out from the...
