Have to say, I’m a big fan of the mechanical keyboard. My personal gaming setup has a Steelseries 7G and I use a Zowie Celeritas while working. With that in mind, you can understand why I was looking forward to this review. Once again I get to spend an afternoon playing some games and typing away on another mechanical keyboard, the cut down version of my own 7G, the 6Gv2.

Steelseries take on the 6Gv2
The SteelSeries 6Gv2, modeled after the award winning SteelSeries 7G keyboard, is the lower priced mechanical keyboard designed to improve the user’s ability to obtain more actions per minute than any other keyboard on the market. The SteelSeries G Series Keyboards redefine “anti-ghosting” features by supporting as many simultaneous key presses as there are keys on the keyboard.
The SteelSeries 6Gv2 features PS/2 and gold-plated USB connectors as well as 18K gold-plated mechanical switches with a switch lifetime of 50 million operations, more than 10 times the lifespan of a typical “membrane” keyboard. Its increased response times and extreme durability make the SteelSeries 6Gv2 the ultimate keyboard option for gamers.
