Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum Mechanical Keyboard Review

Summary.


Here is Logitech’s attempt at a gaming Keyboard. I have to say I’m very impressed by this product by Logitech, the keys feel great, the RGB lighting is something else on the colour wave mode. The Ultra fast Romer-G keys are the perfect combination to someone who wants a Keyboard of this type but not the super clicky Keys from other brands like Corsair or Razor. The Keys have been made for endurance and to include minimal lighting on the backs of the keys but to only illuminate the set lettering and icon’s on the key faces. The keyboard supports multimedia control with pause and mute buttons.

Software

This software is truly eye watering, Logitech have done something right and made the software UI millions of people use everyday as easy as possible to use and see. The picture shows the home screen of the keyboard menu. The selections are the home screen, profiles for keys, the lighting mode, the gaming key disable selection and the key heat menu. I am going to show the two main selection menu settings.

Key profile

In the above picture it gives you a visual of the key profiles menu, down the bottom you can see the selection of settings has been made very simple for all the users to efficiently choose what you want to do. Here you can choose what you want keys to do like in gaming mode, you can assign certain keys to do certain things.

Lighting mode

For me this is what elevates the software to the next level. With the easy controls and a wide variety of effects to use, like the colour wave setting that my keyboard is currently set on. However, you can change your keyboard to selected areas to highlight some of the keys you want to enhance your gaming experience and make it easier for yourself.

Hardware

The hardware does not go short of exceptional. The Romer-G keys are delightful to press with a shorter tactile bump making key presses a lot easier and quicker to press. This board is a full-sized board meaning it has all numbers and controls on the very right of the board. Also with various multi-media controls like the Pause/play button along with the STOP, Skip and Back rewind button.
