I'd love to know more about that keyboard - is there anywhere I can find more info? I've tried to find a UK vendor but it seems there's none.


I would also like to know more about that keyboard. Would also be interested in any other keyboards that are considered "safe to use" for a CS player where mouse movement is crucial.
Im actually starting to like this old Dell keyboard tho biggrin.gif

Maybe I'm not understanding the issue at hand here, but I've got the offending keyboard and it's worked flawless for me. I primarily play FPS games online. I use it with my PS/2 port, and I don't notice any cursor lag. I had a Logitech G19 before and it is an absolutely atrocious experience compared to this keyboard.

Thread Starter 
For people that keep asking, the Steelseries 6gv2 is the only keyboard I've used that has this problem. 1000hz keyboards are also a bad idea and get you a similar dulling down of cursor movement you don't get with a 125hz keyboard. The 6gv2 seemed to be even worse than that though.

There's also another issue with this situation. Since PS/2 keyboards can't be hotplugged, Windows doesn't actually uninstall them after you unplug it for convenience. It keeps the device still detected being in your system. The only way I could figure out how to get rid of it, is go in device manager, change it to show devices by IRQ, then near the very top it should say PS/2 keyboard. Right click and uninstall. As to whether this method works to completely remove the PS/2 keyboard from your system, I'm not sure, but it appears to.

My friend has had this happen to him. He connected his 6Gv2 from PS2 to USB and the mouse movement was significantly more laggy. He didn't even know about this thread here.

I don't know how you do it r0ach...

I have an X4, it's a pretty good keyboard. It's not something I would have chosen, but it's lasted me quite a long time, never had a problem with rollover and the profile is nice. It's got a bit too much going on button-wise for my taste, and I would have preferred a TKL on top of that. It takes up alot of landscape, but it's pretty good otherwise. The keycaps are backlit but not silhouetted as seems popular in a lot of 'gaming' boards. The lighting itself is pretty muted and not distracting. If you were to look at the board at first glance in a lit room, you would think the caps were printed in a soft red rather than illuminated.

The only real negative is that it has about 20 buttons more than it needs, and should have been designed to have the wrist rest removable and some space could have been shaved off the width of the board as well.

Just tried pluging my 6gv2 into the ps2 port... God damn it makes a difference. The mouse feels so much snappier.

I thought this was the new 3310 feel on my fk2 (I got the fk2 and the 6gv2 at the same time)... Just tried pluging in my kinzu v2, no problem on 500hz and keyboard on usb. Same with sensei on 500hz.

Hmmm maybe this is why most pros play on 500hz and most people say 1mhz feels wonky.......

Thanks for the fix smile.gif

Interesting thread r0ach.

I own 6gv2 and can confirm it gives me a slow cursor. It is just weird that most pro players in cs use that with close to perfect aim.

6gv2 is 1.1 device
my zowie mouse is 2.0 device.

You said this:

Due to most motherboards having only a single transaction translator on USB hubs, mixing USB 1.1 devices (which most keyboards are), and USB 2.0 mice, should have negative consequences as well such as described by Cypress here:

But the link is broken. Why is it bad? So i should not have 6gv2 in the usb port next to my zowie? How about if I plug in my zowie into a usbport on the top and my keyboard in a usbport further down at the back of my computer?

Please help.

Btw I own a 2.0 keyboard with 125hz. I can actually change polling rate on that keyboard. 125, 500 or 1000hz. Its a corsair k70.

Use PS/2 instead of USB

Also someone please close the thread, it's stupid.
