Steelseries 7G Review


We review a lot of peripherals here at XSR, and over the years we’ve noticed the growing trend of steadily increasing prices with gaming mice costing upwards of £50 now. Still though, they aren’t the most expensive input accessory you can use with your PC, with specialised keyboards getting close to the £100 mark.

Today, we’re reviewing just such a keyboard, this one from Steelseries. It’s not packing a tonne of gaming macro buttons, but it does have full metal internals, and its endorsed by a multitude of gaming professionals around the world. On the surface it doesn’t look like a gaming keyboard, but with all its accolades, there must be something interesting about it. Let’s check it out.
