Gigabyte Aivia K8100 Keyboard Review

Hardware Secrets Silver Award


You know that expression “this is the Ferrari of keyboards”? Well, it seems that Gigabyte got inspired by it and created a great gaming keyboard that, aside from really behaving like a Ferrari of gaming keyboards, it also features a design clearly derivative of the Italian car maker. The Aivia K8100 comes in black, red and yellow versions and features an emblem on the wrist rest that just looks too much like the ones found on sportst cars. Let’s take it for a ride then.

The keyboard has a sleek body design and comes with a large wrist rest (it can be detached by loosing four tiny screws on the underside). It features backlit keys, two USB ports (one on each side) and a touch-sensitive volume control on the top, just besides the five programmable buttons. On the upper left side there’s a blinking mode button to change the user profiles. The cable is cloth-wrapped, a market standard.
