Mechanical keyboards are addictive, once you have used one there is no going back. I started using the TVS Gold Mechanical keyboard about 15 years back, it was at that point of time priced close to Rs. 1,000. (a very high price for a keyboard).
Mechanical Keyboards offer incredible typing experience and long life. The Keyboard we are reviewed today is from G.Skill, famous for making high speed Rams and Mechanical Keyboards.
G.Skill have KM 780, a more expensive line of keyboards and the GSkill KM 570 which costs $99 or Rs. 6700 + taxes in India (Approx Rs. 7500 to Rs. 8500). It is cheaper compared to some of the Keyboards we have reviewed before like the Cooler Master Rapid i or the Corsair Strafe Cherry MX Brown RGB Keyboard.
But does it offers good value for Money and have the required features of a good gaming and typing keyboards, we will find out in this detailed review.
Build Quality and Design
The Build Quality is top notch and the material used to make the keys is premium. You don’t feel that it is made from a cheaper plastic or G.Skill has cut corners. Compared to some of the very premium keyboards it will feel a bit less excusite. But there are no compromises anywhere.
There is no palm rest with the keyboard, but the bottom end, below the spacebar is slanted to make your hands rest properly.
Gaming and Typing Experience
Ideal for Gamers, Writers and Programmers or if you spend more than 6-8 hours in front of the PC. The keyboard comes with Cherry MX brown keys and require about 45 mg of actuation force to press.

The G.Skill is quite easy on Fingers and the effort required to type on the keyboard is minimal.
The Space bar on this keyboard is more soft and better when compared to my regualar Corsair Rapid i. It is important to have a great space bar : as after every word you are bound to press the spacebar.
The Gskill KM 570 comes with some of the dedicated Keys which help you quickly open up Computer explorer, Internet explorer, Calculator, pause, play, forward, volume up and down.
