Whether you are looking for one of the best looking, or one of the most function mechanical gaming keyboards on the market, the G.Skill RIPJAWS KM780 RGB mechanical keyboard ticks a lot of boxes. With a keen focus on offering good cable management options, a solid frame with a beautiful anodised aluminium plate and a massive variety of colour customisation options via the G.Skill software, it’s easy to see why this is one of the most sought after gaming keyboards currently on the market.

G.Skill have taken their famed RIPJAWS DNA and infused it into a peripheral range which offers a large amount, even if the price is towards the top end of the mechanical keyboard market. £140 isn’t a small figure when it comes to a keyboard and it touches on some of the more bespoke brands pricing model, but what they don’t give you is the ability to do virtually anything you can imagine; without an attached LCD screen of course.

It’s large, it’s big, it’s heavy, but it’s also built very solidly and unless you intend to throw it down the stairs, the G.Skill KM780 RGB keyboard should stand the test of time! G.Skill have included a 2-year warranty and a set of gamer style red textured keycaps to seal the deal; something I actually like very much!

If you’re looking for a new gaming keyboard and it has to feature Cherry MX switches, you want a dedicated media control panel and want RGB customisation, the G.Skill RIPJAWS KM780 is the ammunition you need to fire yourself to victory!

Huge thanks to G.Skill for sending the KM780 RGB mechanical keyboard in for review.
