6Gv2 is a PS2 keyboard and I could bust someones head open with it it feels so solid. This is a USB keyboard and probably made of cheap plastic... NO it is not a replacement!

Noooo! Why blue, SteelSeries?? Blue is so fugly! Especially that shade... The white LEDs were so beautiful, it matched your mice and some awesome Fractal Design cases, and now...

And I see you moved the "Fn" key from the left side and added the Windows key back in. Disappoint, son... Disappoint. :(

Now that I think about it, it costs exactly the same as the older 6Gv2. That leads me to believe that they've cut corners somewhere if a new product costs as much as a 5 year old one. Plus, mine's Cherry MX Black, the new ones are Red so I'm not that irritated anymore lol

ANSI layout. Reversed L enter keys are just wrong IMHO, so that's a bonus. Full- size yet minimalist design, also good. Probably should have RGB as an option so people can match to their color scheme and/or personality. Other switch options would be nice for work and play. Legends are way nicer than most gamer-oriented keyboards, though I'm betting they're not doubleshots but rather black-coated translucent keys that have been laser etched and are therefore vulnerable to wear. For the price with genuine Cherry MX switches, it seems like a pretty decent keyboard.

Just not for me. I'm really picky, though.
