What advantages does this keyboard offer?
The G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 provides multiple features that boost what a gaming keyboard has to offer. The hard-wearing design, with its brushed anodized, military grade aluminium back plate, gives a stylised look. The crimson red back lighting and a 1.8-metre braided cable show this keyboard is for optimised for gaming, and the Cherry MX-Red key switches deliver a smooth, quiet key press that requires less actuation force. With a 2mm activation distance and a durability of up to 50 million keystrokes, switches are accurate and extremely durable.

This keyboard can register multiple simultaneous key presses with extreme accuracy, and has 100% anti-ghosting capabilities paired with N-Key rollover – allowing you to perform multiple in-game actions at the same time. Control of your audio can be achieved by the "on corner" media keys and volume control. These let you pause video or music, and fast forward to the next track or skip back to a previous song. An LED volume display lets you see your current sound level and adjust using the die cast metal roller at a glance.

How customisable is this keyboard?
The G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 allows for a number of customisation options to personalise your keyboard. Included with the keyboard is the G.SKILL unified driver system. With this, each key can be programmed to perform different tasks, as well as customised to be lit up in one of 16.8 million colours. Both lighting profiles and macro settings can be saved directly to the keyboard in one of the three available memory profiles. This lets you recall them quickly whenever you need them.

The key caps covering the MX-Red switches can be removed using the included tool, which adds a deeper level of customisation by using the included WSAD zone gaming caps. With this, you can recognise key locations by simply feeling a difference in the keys. Unused keys and the removal tool are stored in the supplied case, which can then be attached to the keyboard for safe keeping.

A removable wrist rest means the keyboard can be used on narrow surfaces or for storage, and angle adjustment provides support for your wrists during long sessions of use.

The G.SKILL RIPJAWS KM780 is compatible with any desktop computer with a USB 2.0 port. A second USB2.0 port is required if you would like to take advantage of the USB pass-through feature.
