We recently took a look at Razer’s first attempt at a mechanical gaming keyboard which left us with mainly positive impressions. Throughout our review we compared it to SteelSeries’ existing mechanical keyboard, the 7G, which has been around for a good few years now and can be found on the desks of serious gamers across the globe.
Today we are going to look at the latest addition to SteelSeries’ keyboard range, the 6G V2, which is a very slightly cut down version of the existing 7G. Some of you may be wondering why SteelSeries are releasing a product so similar to an existing product. Well, SteelSeries have been able to lower the price of the 6G V2, opening up all the benefits of mechanical keyboards to a wider range of gamers.
When we say that SteelSeries have cut down on the features from the 7G, most of these won’t even affect a lot of users. In fact the only items missing are the rather unique palm rest, the USB and audio hub and a braided shielding on the cable. Aside from these the two keyboards are basically identical.
