GIGABYTE Force K7 Gaming Keyboard

 

GIGABYTE FORCE K7 is a bit of a hit and miss in terms of performance and design. GIGABYTE probably tried to accomplish too much with their K7 design; its purpose remains unclear. An ultra-slim keyboard is interesting to those looking for something...

Adjustable three color back lighting, Short travel distance keys, Large wrist wrest, Slim and silent, Good build quality, Extra functional scroll wheels, WASD anti-ghosting

Scissor mechanisms are not as comfortable to type on as mechanical ones, Somewhat expensive for a rubber-dome keyboard, No driver suite, Anti-ghosting limited to WASD area

Gigabyte FORCE K7 Stealth Gaming Keyboard

 

The Gigabyte Force K7 Stealth Gaming Keyboard's membrane scissor switches are dead quiet compared to an overall mechanical keyboard, so that's a big plus! The Force K7 Stealth comes with an MSRP of only $49.99 US making this a good value.

Gigabyte Force K7 review

 

Gigabyte's latest board isn't quite a force to be reckoned with

Backlit keys ; Windows lock key ; Low-profile keys

Some concerns over build quality ; No extra function keys ; Price

Gigabyte Force K7 review

 

Not an especially bad keyboard, but the Force K7 is expensive and could be better for both gaming and work

Consumer review (newegg.com)

good enough

 

bought it for the green backlight. The color wheel could be a bit faster but i dont change it that much. the keys arent clicky [noisy] at all and have rather a plastic feel to them.. being its pretty quiet, its great for when my better half is sleeping...

backlights arent bright enough

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Very nice feel

 

It works fine very responsive. A capital works for me. As you can see

Manufacturer states never to remove keys. What happens if it gets a little dirty

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not worth your time

 

Almost immediately after connecting the keyboard I was having issues. When I was trying to enter in my login password, I noticed the cursor kept leaving the entry field. I thought nothing of it and (after some effort) finished my login. I decided to...

Looks nice, win lock key

Tab key has a mind of its own, can't capitalize A's, backspace key is half-sized, rather poorly designed mechanically
