G.Skill Ripjaws Gaming Peripherals Review

Expansion is the name of the game. What is the point of having a brand that is renowned the world over for producing hardware - normally memory - of the very highest quality if you don't then branch out with that identity into other sectors of the market. People are notoriously brand loyal so it makes perfect sense for G.Skill to broaden their horizons into the peripheral sector.
We have three items from their Ripjaws range up for review today. In a separate one we'll be looking at the SM910 Headset, but here we're all about input devices, namely the KM780 Keyboard and MX780 Mouse. Entering into this crowded marketplace is a brave move. Have G.Skill got the design spot on out of the gate?
The specifications read like a what's what of gaming hardware. The KM780 is equipped with the brown variant of the Cherry MX switches, as well as supporting full spectrum RGB lighting, full N-Key rollover and dedicated macro and media keys. The MX780 is similarly well equipped replete with the Avago sensor/Omron switch combination which seems to be part of every mouse on earth of late. Mere specifications alone don't cover all the bases of course, so let's get down to business.
