1 out of 5 eggsGreat until it died

Pros: Solid build, great to type on. Massive cord, USB 3 port, lots of nice features. Got a few months of use out of it.

Cons: Awesome until it stopped working randomly. Now the profile button lights up, but none of the keys light up and the keyboard doesn't register anything. No way to update the firmware.

Other Thoughts: From a great keyboard to a large paperweight.

1 out of 5 eggsDecent keyboard but......

Pros: The construction of the keyboard is solid. Keys work great. I love the heavy feel it don't slide around on my desk.

Cons: Only a few days after the 2 year warranty runs out its started turning on and off randomly then it went up in a big puff off blue smoke from under the profile select button.... oky no problem ive had it for a while and used it a lot I got to there web site to check out warranty information get no where cause there site claims the s/n does exist. So I get my new one hook it up the software will not recognize the new board so cant use any of the macro keys setting ect...
I go to there web site which they send you to a message board for technical support tried to register cause it says my old account don't exist. So I register got the page saying I need a email to verify well the email never come ive request multiable times so I can get in and get some help with the software.

Other Thoughts: I think it s a decent keyboard, but the customer service is non existent. Seam from what I can see of their forms they have had a lot of problems with the software......

3 out of 5 eggsLike Many Others, Great Until It Died

Pros: -Feels super solid
-Key feel and response is great
-Utility makes it easy to program and store tons of macros
-Knobs to adjust both backlight and system volume

Cons: Like many others, this keyboard died on me after about a year and a half. Was working one day, I rebooted my desktop for something routine and then nothing worked except the Aivia light in the corner. This is apparently a very common problem. In addition, a persistent firmware bug caused the backlight to stay on, even when the system was asleep or powered off. Gigabyte kept saying an update was coming to fix this and then it never did. I will be sending this back under warranty. Hopefully the replacement stays working. Not pleased with having to pay shipping back on a product which has so many known issues.

Other Thoughts: Gigabyte has Aivia forums and one day, they just stopped participating in them. Lots of people having similar issues and dead silence from their support. Firmware updates also stopped coming, even though there are still numerous unsolved issues. A company of this size charging this much for a supposedly premium product should do better.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Work Horse Finally Broke.

Pros: It took me 3.5 years to break this keyboard. I loved the keyboard button removal tool they included. The key illumination never stop working on any of the keys. When adjusting the brightness on the keyboard please make note of temporarily blindness. The keyboard shines brighter than one-thousand suns. The macro buttons where placed in the most convenient location. It has very sturdy keys even after face smashing game rages. This keyboard will be the standard for buying my next keyboard ( or perhaps ill just another one! )

Cons: I almost knocked off 1 egg because of this keyboards downfall. I dub it a " Ozzy Osbourne" death. Like all the crazy Substances he has done and not died from, he will probably die from something simple. Like Ozzy I have done some crazy things to this keyboard. Extreme drops ( don't ask why), extreme colds, and extreme hots. The keyboards downfall was 1 Tablespoon of water. Literally 1 tablespoon.

Other Thoughts: I really hope the Ozzy Osbourne description wasn't too overboard. To really solve the water spillage problem is easy! Just don't drink near the keyboard! Although in my opinion that is equal to cooking ramen noodles on the stove top versus a microwave. I'm hungry now and the microwave is faster and easier. It's inconvenient to use the stove top. This is a real and true review. i just have a colorful way to describe things.

1 out of 5 eggsIt's good while it lasted.

Pros: It uses high quality cherry red switches.
LED brightness is adjustable.
Function keys are convenient.
Audio volume can be directly controlled from keyboard.

Cons: LED gave out.
Keys no longer respond.

Other Thoughts: Wrote a review on June 30, 2013.
At that time, one of my LEDs from under the "7" key gave out. Thought it was just an unlucky circumstance. A few months out of warranty, at least 5 of my keys no longer work on this keyboard. I don't game or go hard on the keyboard, but its hard to justify such a seeming solidly built keyboard just have keys that stop working. It makes me wonder if the soldiering or components on the motherboards last as long as the warranty as well.

1 out of 5 eggsWas on my second one!

Pros: Liked the keyboard and mechanical keys and backlights.

Cons: Built a gaming system with all components purchased from Newegg.ca Everything else I bought except the Gigabyte Aivia osmium keyboard has been 100 percent. The first one failed (lights went out and was dead) just before the year was out so I managed to go through Gigabytes RMA process and sent it back and they sent a replacement. Just about a year later now with the replacement and the same thing happened no backlights and is dead. I wish I would have read all the other reviews on here and would not have purchased it. I liked the keyboard but for the money it should last longer than a few months because a cheap 29 dollar one will last for years.

Other Thoughts: Guess I'm out of luck with any warranty on this replacement and will think twice about buying any Gigabyte product again

1 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

Pros: -Backlit
-Great Macros
-Typing felt good
-Nice and sturdy design

Cons: -Failed on me in just over a year

Other Thoughts: The keyboard decided to stop working just over a year after purchase. Bought on 8/12/13 if I remember correctly. First the lights started to flicker on and off, then it just quit on me. It was such a great keyboard while it worked. You would expect that a $100 keyboard would last several years. Very disappointed. If you want a keyboard that'll last, stay away from this one.

2 out of 5 eggsJust another small problem in my life

Pros: Lighting is attractive when it works
Covenient physical volume knobs are good things
Wife loves Cherry MX Red keys

Cons: Lights turn off for no reason
Keyboard disconnects for no apparent reason

Other Thoughts: Given all the the wife has to get frustrated about with PCs, I just don't think I should have to hear about her keyboard of all things. I don't know if there are issues with power management on the USB ports, or something in the design of the Osmium, but this thing sporadically goes dark and disconnects without visible cause. Gigabyte's online help seems difficult to access and I just don't have time to overcome it. So Gigabyte is off the list, and I guess I'm going to drop another C-note on a replacement.
