Brill review Bryan.

I would have liked to see an option to change the colour of the lights. It does look very nice and the keyboard cover is a nice addition because I'm OCD when it comes to peripheral cleanliness . For £40 you do get some good features but there is nothing that really separates it from other keyboards in a similar price range. So, a bronze award is fair .

Looks like an interesting keyboard, but seems like it's only good for basic gaming and everyday typing. All I can say is, that it looks like a Lamborghini Reventon. I think Gigabyte had purposely used the stealth and sleek look of the vehicle on their keyboard.

Wow.....Yellow Reventon....haha.

The gun metal grey/black looks better colour wise, but this yellow really stands out.

I was wondering if the software slows down the system because My Logitech G19 software definitely slows down my system even with the latest updates from Logitech.
