When it comes to gaming peripherals, G.Skill aren’t usually the first brand that come to mind. This isn’t surprising, given that G.Skill are well-known for their memory products, but they’re a fairly new player when it comes to gaming hardware. Of course, we recently reviewed their new gaming mouse, the MX780 RGB, and it was absolutely amazing, so if this keyboard can capture even half of the quality of that product, we should be in for a real treat here today.
“100% Cherry MX mechanical key switch in RGB backlighting, per-key programmability, on-the-fly macro recording, 6 extra macro keys, full media control with LED volume display, foldable mouse cable holder, and custom gaming keycaps. The RIPJAWS KM780 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard is designed and built with durability and practicality in mind for the ultimate gaming and typing experience.”
The Ripjaws KM780 is backed to the brim with features that will appeal to a gaming audience. There are macro keys, RGB lighting effects, custom key caps and so much more. Just check out the official product trailer below for a quick rundown of some of the cool features this keyboard has to offer.
Equipped with Cherry MX brown switches, you know that you’re going to be getting a familiar and reliable level of performance from this keyboard, but with so many other features such as the detachable wrist rest, USB pass-through, mouse cable holder and more, it should be able to make its own unique entrance to what is already a very busy part of the gaming market.
The packaging is nicely designed, with a colourful image of the keyboard on the front, as well a quick rundown of some of the major specifications.
Around the back, a more detailed breakdown of the features on offer, but we will take a much closer look at all of these in a moment.
In the box, you’ll find a few curious extras, such as this little box that can be (optionally) clipped onto the chassis of the keyboard.
On the interior, you’ll find custom gaming key caps, as well as a key cap pulling tool.
There’s also a sturdy wrist rest, which can also be (optionally) mounted to the chassis of the keyboard.
