How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Gigabyte's Aivia Osmium mechanical keyboard offers the flexibility to not just give you an gaming edge, but can also double as your everyday keyboard, as long as you're willing to pay a little bit more. In using the Osmium, TrustedReviews says "the superb feedback and audible click provided by its mechanical switches, makes it a pleasure to work on," though HotHardware also finds it to be "hyper-sensitive and unforgiving." Don't worry about disturbing people when using it either, as TweakTown says "the way this board is designed, the key strokes don't make as much noise."
