G Skill Ripjaws KM780 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard

Rating: 9.0.

G Skill may be better known for their memory and storage products, but they are expanding their portfolio. Today we look at their new keyboard – the Ripjaws KM780 RGB. This keyboard incorporates Cherry MX mechanical switches and clear housings to deliver uniform RGB backlighting.

It also packs a metal piped frame, detachable wrist rest, media keys, macro switches and a number of other fancy functions, all into a brushed aluminium frame. This is no budget product, as RGB mechanical keyboards tend to be – but can it justify the price tag?

The G Skill Ripjaws KM780 RGB has all of the usual back-end software features and a number of neat additional extras not included by other keyboard companies. Time to take a look up close.
