  1. High performance memory specialists G.Skill have decided to branch out beyond the memory and storage market with a range of very different products targeting PC gamers. During Computex 2015, the company proudly began showing off its upcoming mechanical gaming keyboards along with its first gaming mouse and headset. Now three months later, we're ready to test the KM780 RGB ($190) mechanical keyboard and MX780 RGB ($80) gaming mouse.

    The keyboard is built for durability and practicality, but also include gaming orientated features such as three mode hotkeys, six dedicated macro keys and lighting patterns. The onboard memory and software let you adjust per-key lighting, macro setup, timer setting, key delay and repeat rate, polling rate and various other settings. Meanwhile, the MX780 RGB features a height adjustable palm rest, interchangeable side grips and gaming grade PTFE glide pads on the underside. From their name you could guess both offers RGB LED lighting.

    Would you use it as your standard keyboard? What is your current one? A Das or something else?

    I am using it as my current keyboard at the moment. If I like the keyboard I just reviewed I use it till the next one comes along that I like as much or more. Previously I was using the Cougar 700K which is very similar. I have used a Das in the past.

    I'm on a Logitech G710+ which has the Cherry MX Brown switches too, so the switches used are appealing. Out of the different ones I've tried I'm happy with these for multi purpose, general typing and gaming. Just wish it was an RGB backlit model, and the Razer Orbweaver was RGB too! Green and white look a bit mismatched.

    They don't seem to be too bad at all but mice and keyboards are personal taste and feel things. Always a try before you rue your expenditure on something some reviewer fawns all over. (No offence Steve. I'm not implying you fawned all over these, I enjoyed your review. I'm just saying, in general terms... ya know).
