The Genius KB-G265 Keyboard is the latest from GeniusNet. Creating for gaming I have played enough games on this keyboard to get a feel for it and gain my final opinions. That opinion is this, I like this keyboard.
The KB-G265 is well built and sturdy and is a great size for home use. Mobile use is kind of out of the question with how big it is. All of the keys are backlight with blue LED's and it is highly visible in the darkness and light. The keys are responsive and easy to type on. For you tech junkies, here is the rundown on the specs.
- 1 ms Response Time
- 20 Anti-Ghost Game Keys
- 2 USB Ports
- 8 Silver Keys to replace (WASD and Arrow Keys)
- 5 Million Key Switch Life
- Windows Lock Button
- LED Toggle On/Off Button
This keyboard does seem to come with a few problems though. The drivers seem to not agree with Windows 7. 90% of the time the keyboard is working great, but occasionally (typically in the high speed USB ports) the lights will flicker and the keyboard will not register any keystrokes. Relocating the USB connection or restarting the computer tends to remedy he problem, but playing games like League of Legends or other PVP centric games this is a hindrance.
Most of the shortcut buttons up top are useless outside of two, the LED On/Off Button and the Windows Lock Button. Now the Windows Lock button is genius. If you are a PC gamer, you know the frustration when you hit the Windows Key between Ctrl and Alt and your game minimizes. This unique button prevents that from happening.
The games I have played with the KB-G265 Keyboard are, Payday 2, Worms Clan Wars, Mars War Logs, and Folk Tale. All games played great and this keyboard is worth your money. The KB-G265 is a must have keyboard for gamers on a budget or those who just want a simple keyboard to game with. I give it a score of 9/10.
