Logitech G910 Orion Spectrum Review
Published: 29th September 2016 | Source: Logitech | Price: |
Unlike the G213 packaging which slightly fudged the actual look of the lighting on the keyboard, as the range topping model you can be sure that the G910 inside the box looks identical to the one on the outside. Certainly the multitude of switches are attention grabbing, and all the features are clearly laid out to catch the eye of people passing through the keyboard aisle of your local emporium.
The keys caps are a design unique to the Romer-G, so if you're not keen on the arches over the WASD and Cursor Keys - and we aren't - then you have no option to change them. Wherever you look though there are extra keys to give you a wealth of customisation options. Nine dedicated macro keys split between five on the left and four above the F keys. As well as those there are three memory buttons on the very top left, and dedicated media keys, including a volume scroll wheel, on the top right. You can be sure you wont run out of places to store your macros.
Lastly three things which bring down the feel of the G910 as a £150 keyboard. The wrist rest is extremely flimsy and easy to pop off, and beneath that is a solid weave of metal. Which means if the flimsy one isn't to your taste you cannot replace it with a gel wrist pad or similar, because they underneath gets in the way. That's very disappointing. The ARX dock, a key feature of the G910, seems to be made from the same kind of plastic as you would find in a box of chocolates, which doesn't inspire confidence. Sure it works, but as a key component and large reason why this keyboard costs as much as it does, it's disappointing. Lastly the cable isn't braided. It's a small thing, but as the G213, much much cheaper than this model, had a fully braided cable we'd expect the flagship keyboard to do so but it doesn't.
