Logitech has been expanding its range of gaming keyboards throughout the last year. Not only does it have the flagship G910 ‘Orion Spark’ out and about, but Logitech has also launched a 10-keyless version, the G410. However, not everyone is a fan of the look, so for those people Logitech has now launched the G810, a gaming keyboard disguised as a regular office board.
The Logitech G810 uses the same fancy lighting and Romer-G switches that the G910 and G410 are known for. Logitech’s Romer-G switches have a 25 percent reduction in travel distance compared to Cherry MX switches, our own Jon Martindale even got to go and see how these switches are made, which you can read about HERE.
We reviewed both the G910 and the G410 so as long as nothing has gone drastically wrong, Logitech’s software is always excellent with an easy to navigate UI and lighting features. This is once again an RGB keyboard, so you can have a whole range of colours appear on the board, along with some different effects.
Finally, there will also be a set of dedicated media keys, with a volume control wheel. The keyboard has a plastic finish and will retail for $160 this year.
KitGuru Says: We already know that Logitech’s software, Romer-G switches and lighting are excellent from past experience so if you didn’t necessarily like the distinct ‘gamer’ design of the G910 or G410, then the G810 with its classic office-style look might appeal to you. Are any of you currently in the market for a mechanical keyboard?
