G.Skill RIPJAWS KM780 MX Mechanical Keyboard Review

When G.Skill came on the scene, they rapidly became known for providing excellent computer memory at prices that were amazingly low compared to the competition. To this day, they have kept that trend going, challenging the other big manufacturers to keep their prices competitive and give us, the end user, a wonderful selection of rock solid memory to put into our boxes.

The RIPJAWS name quickly became known as the line to go to for stunning looks with the blue and red anodized heat spreaders giving the memory a distinctive look that stood well out from the rest of the pack. The expanded RIPJAWS line, now including keyboards and mice, continues that trend, providing a look that is distinctly G.Skill, with rock solid value.

At the time of the review’s writing, Amazon.com listed the RIPJAWS KM780 MX keyboard at $149.95.
