Check out these quotes from SteelSeries 6Gv2 reviews & previews
"This is a lot for a gaming keyboard but let's not forget that the 6Gv2 is a mechanical keyboard at heart and will likely outlast most if not all of your current system. The gaming related features of the SteelSeries 6Gv2 are anti-ghosting, quick response keys and the omission of the windows key on the left of the space bar. It hasn't made a great deal of difference to my game but I only play FPS, and it is also a damn good keyboard to type on. The 6Gv2 is two thirds the price of its big brother and performs the same and does away with a few luxuries. Based on this I would have to recommend the 6Gv2 over the 7G because I like to spend less where I can, but you should decide for yourself which is the better deal."
"SteelSeries seem to be trying to buck the trend with the 6G V2 by pricing it very attractively. At a shade over £55 at IGLS, it is about half the price of the Razer Black Widow Ultimate that we recently looked at and around £40 – £45 cheaper than the 7G keyboard. At this price we would highly recommend the 6G V2 as it offers outstanding value for money. For those who have a little bit more money to play with, the basic version of the Razer BlackWidow is also a good option at £70. The extra £15 buys you five macro buttons and the ability to reassign keys and assign macros. It also has a different type of mechanical switch which gives a completely different experience. If we had to choose, though, we would still opt for a keyboard with the Cherry MX Black switches like the 6G V2 or 7G."
"There’s no reason to give a perfectly good looking keyboard a bad score, but that does not warrant a full five points. To get all of the points a product has to leave an impression, and that is exactly what the black switch 6GV2 did with its rock solid design and switch choice. The red switch variant did not have the feeling to it I wanted for typing, and the black switch had that feeling and more. For the $99.99-129.99 these keyboards can be found for in the United States I believe the black switch keyboard is a little less flare for a lot more keyboard. Keep in mind that it is very tough to make that distinction considering that aside from the packaging I really had no reason to dislike anything but the red switch’s feel. Keep your eye out for these in the wild, and if you see it at your next LAN give it a shot. You won’t be disappointed!"
"This is a beautiful keyboard. It’s 7G with the fat trimmed. No serious gamer wants the twin 3.5mm connectors and USB on the keyboard, the 6Gv2 gives you all the good bits without these extras. Sure it’s a bit dull to look at – if a bit professional – and it might weigh a tonne – though James Mcavoy would have use for it – but it’s an amazing keyboard for what a keyboard is used for; typing and gaming. Ok it lacks macro keys, but its beautiful to tap away at and its incredibly responsive."
