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

Gigabyte Aivia K8100 Gaming Keyboard


When it comes to gaming, most of the time, the first thing that comes to my mind are consoles like Nintendo 64, Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360... and the list goes on and on. Back in the days, I did not have the opportunity to ever think about computer...

Gigabyte K8100 Aivia Gaming Keyboard Review


Gigabyte has a reputation of being one of the industry's top motherboard and graphics card manufacturers and now they are focusing their efforts on expanding their product line to include more PC components aimed at the PC gaming crowd. One of their...

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.

Gigabyte Aivia K8100 Gaming Keyboard


Powerful software, Onboard memory, Backlit keys, Quality construction

Expensive price, Touch-volume control difficulty

The performance of the Gigabyte Aivia K8100 is supreme; the keys are swift and quiet, the bundled backend software is very powerful, and up to 20 may be pressed at once due to the anti-ghosting functionality included. This is as good as the performance...

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...

Gigabyte Aivia K8100 Keyboard Review


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

Gigabyte Aivia K8100 keyboard review


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,...
