Steelseries 7G

The keyboard itself is quite an interesting one, and very non-typical of one designed for gaming. While it’s black colour scheme with bright white keys are relatively standard, it’s lack of macro buttons, size and weight are not. It’s very small, and compact with miniturised backspace and shift keys contributing to its less than average length. There’s also no programmable macro keys, and wow is this thing heavy. It must weigh in at 10-15lbs which is pretty damn strange for a keyboard.

This weight is down to the gold plated internals designed to give the best latency possible. Also, all other internal components are made of metal which makes it incredibly sturdy.

The keys themselves are curved nicely, and they’re sized in the old school chunky fashion, no laptop style keys here.

Where the left hand windows key would be, there’s actually a “Steelseries key” that acts as another function button for the media keys that run from F1 to F6.

There’s a Steelseries logo in the top right corner, with bright white LEDs signifying when the Num, Caps and Scroll locks are engaged.

At the back on the front there are two USB ports and 2 x 3.3mm jacks for microphone and headphones. Just below these (or above from this picture’s perspective) you have the six media keys which are activated by holding the Steelseries function key. These can be utilised seamlessly while in game without affecting play, making them extra useful.
