If there is one essential piece of equipment which is most overlooked by most buyers it has to be the keyboard. No matter how much you paid for your computer (or even built it yourself from bits of wire in your spare time) your computer is next to useless without this one essential peripheral. While touch screen technology has come a long way, it’s still not ready for prime time and is more a niche market item. Honestly, with the amount of use it is going to get out of it, you should spend as much time looking for your perfect keyboard as you do looking at monitors, video cards or any other “essential” PC items.

Today we will be looking at a keyboard which may not cost an arm and a leg but holds the promise of being a good fit for many consumers. The Gigabyte GK-K6800 multimedia keyboard is a very elegant looking unit with a few extras which should prove to be useful for most people. This keyboard will retail for about $25USD and should be soon available from retailers and e-tailers throughout the country.

A good keyboard can make you more productive, more comfortable and above else make the human computer interface a little less frustrating task. In many ways it is not easy to find a good keyboard, even if you are willing to spend a lot of money on it. Many people don't realize that price is not a good way to judge the worthiness of a keyboard as there are some really good inexpensive keyboards out there and there are some really high priced stinkers. We here at HWC believe there is a market for both expensive and less than expensive boards as long as they are GOOD. The frugal consumer in us loves finding the nuggets of gold in amongst the detritus.

The biggest question we have concerning today’s review item is if it is one of these hard to find yet so sought after items: a low cost, high value keyboard. Will this the GK-K6800 prove itself a worthy addition to your arsenal of peripherals?
