GIGABYTE Aivia Osmium Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review

GIGABYTE offers a large, almost life-sized image of the Osmium on the front with things like the USB 3.0 port, the 45 grams of activation pressure of the keys, the anti-ghosting capability and the LED backlit illumination.




Under the front, on the long skinny side of the box, you find five features that are repeated down the entire length of the box in 14 total languages.




This is what you find on the smaller left side panel. This covers the company information and where is it located along with the product information for the Osmium I was sent.




The back is where you get to see a lot about the Osmium. Here the switches, ports, lighting, connections, Macro keys, scroll wheels, wrist rest, the feet, profile button, software and the keycaps are all defined and explained here.




The right side panel offers three features listed on the left with a basic specification chart to the right.




The other long panel, this one being at the top, shows the Aivia name on the left (not pictured) with the Osmium name and Mechanical Gaming Keyboard hidden with a play on flat and shiny packaging.




I have never seen a keyboard packaged so well for shipping. GIGABYTE chose to use high density foam with snug compartments for the keyboard and extra pieces found on the right. With this sort of packaging it would really take the delivery truck running over the box to cause damage, this thing can easily survive a four foot fall.
