Basically the hand rest clicks into the front of the keyboard. I never can get used to these things, so I personally always remove them, but its good to have that as an option. The rest itself feels a little plasticity though, it would have been nice to see it rubberized.
The keyboard has the same familiar feel as any other mechanical keyboard when you press the keys, and that's thanks to the Cherry MX switches. That also means you can swap them out if needed/required/wished for. As you can see the keyboard houses red Cherry MX switches.
Cherry MX Black - Linear switch with Actuation Force: 60g (40g-80g overall)
Cherry MX Brown Switches - Tactile Switch with Actuation Force: 45g (55g Peak Force)
Cherry MX Blue Switches - Tactile & Clicky with Actuation Force: 50g (60g Peak Force)
Cherry MX Red Switches - Linear Switch with Actuation Force: 45g
Basically there are four types of Cherry MX switches available: red, black, blue and brown. Each color switch feels different and serves different needs and requirements.
Most mechanical keyboards try to sweeten the deal with audio ports, USB hubs, lights, knobs, wrist rest, or something, Gigabyte offers a MIC and headphone connector at the side of the keyboard. Also we see the USB 3.0 port here.
At the backside of the keyboard we spot a another USB connector that you can use, no PS2 connector is being used, which slowly seems to transform itself being a thing of the past.
