The SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard was developed for gamers who love to play First Person Shooter games and Real Time Strategy games that involve a lot of fast action and unexpected twists. Raw performance and durability was the key focus while designing the SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard as gamers tend to use excessive pressure on the keyboard while playing. This SteelSeries Keyboard connects to your computer by way of 2 m USB cable with gold-plated connectors to enhance its durability.
Style and PortabilityThe SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard has dimensions of 250 x 480 x 43 mm and has the standard layout of a normal keyboard with a few exceptions. The durability of this SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard lets you carry it to your friend's house for a LAN party or for gaming tournaments. The keys of this SteelSeries keyboard let you type and game faster due to the presence of mechanical switches, which have a travel distance that is roughly 50 per cent shorter than most conventional keyboards.
The 6G V2 Keyboard from SteelSeries delivers a consistent tactile feeling that will help you type faster and improve the number of actions per minute in the games that you play. The Num, Caps and Scroll Lock Keys have indicator lights located on the top right corner of the keyboard that light up in a white glow. All the keys on the SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard are mounted on a durable metal inner chassis which makes it physically heavy. The plastic used to make the keyboard contains metal elements to improve the durability and build quality of this 6G V2 Keyboard.
The SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard will take some time to get adjusted to, especially for people who are used to non-mechanical keyboards. But once you get acclimated you will notice a considerable improvement in your typing speed due to the responsive tactile feedback and superior response times. The keys have 18 K gold-plated mechanical no-click switches that have to pass strict tolerance levels while manufacturing to ensure you get a keyboard that delivers consistent performance.
The Cherry Black switches increases the lifespan of the SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard by 50 million keystrokes. This allows the keyboard to withstand fast fingers, fists and angry smashes to let you get back into the game with full functionality.
Performance and ConnectivityThe SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard works best with Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, 98 and ME versions. The annoying Windows Key has been replaced by a SteelSeries Key that does not pull up the Windows Menu during intense gameplay. The SteelSeries key is used to activate the dual multimedia functions of the Function keys F1 to F6 making it easier to control your movie and music directly from the keyboard. This feature helped reduce the size of the keyboard as additional keys just for the media functions were not required.
On the SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard you can press up to 6 keys at a time when it is connected by USB. But if you opt to use the included USB to PS/2 converter there is no limit to the number of simultaneous key presses you can execute. When the keyboard is connected by the USB port the signals need to be processed by the CPU which is known as polling. But when SteelSeries 6G V2 Keyboard is connected through a PS/2 port there is no polling and all the keys are registered without loss.

Don't go by the ratings. Not sure why so many 1 star ratings. Its very clear the keyboard has no macro capability and no separate multimedia keys. Bare minimal frame and no wrist support as well.
This is a mechanical keyboard. So if you haven't used one before I would suggest to try TVS Gold or any other once before buying one.
Having used Logitech G15 2 tone version before, I can say the 6Gv2 keys are better.
6Gv2 a no nonsense keyboard that does what it says. I have been using this for around 2 weeks now. My typing speed has gone up by 10-15% wpm.
The keys are very responsive and require lot less effort to press. The keyboard registers a key press even at a slight press of the key, you don't actually need to press all the way down.
They keyboard is a tank. Weighs around 1kg. Stays in place.
Solid built quality.
Not noisy. Pretty silent for a mechanical keyboard.
Both the backslashes are before shift.
6k cost seems a bit expensive for a bare-bones keyboard. That's why the 4 stars.
Why I picked 6Gv2?
I need a mechanical keyboard.
Not many options in India regarding mechanical keyboards, Razer Blackwidow (blue cherry) 4.5k, 6Gv2 (black cherry) 6k, Corsair Vengeance (red cherry) 7.25k. I went with 6Gv2 as blue cherry are very noisy and I am not a razor fan. Corsair was outta budget. And I am an old fashioned guy, no taste for flashy lights and designer stuff.
i think this keyboard in the beginning i touched the key and it feeled the whole different thing so far i used from any other keyboards.this is just the right thing for me and for any extreme gamer out there.the response time is outstanding and also the ANTI GHOSTING feature in this keyboard is also best in class.it also improved my reaction time in FPS games like cs 1.6 and battlefield 3.but yes will need time to set on this keyboard because of its Layout and also the pressure u will need to the key to be pressed is also too much but with the time you will get adjusted with it.have to say This keyabord is a one hell BEAST!
