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."

For me, though, it's all about how good the Osmium is in general PC use. I'm typing this review on the board right now and it's seriously making me consider tagging this in and replacing the Corsair K60 I've been typing on for the last six months.

If your fingers aren’t bothered by its steep slope and you don’t mind the somewhat basic software, this gaming keyboard is worth every penny of its high asking price.

$129 is simply too much to pay for a keyboard that has trouble fulfilling its most basic function -- accurately transferring input from fingertip to screen. Technically, it's priced competitively with other Cherry Red-based gaming keyboards ... but the key bounce issue is impossible to overlook.
