Editor’s note: IGN is ramping tech and hardware reviews back up, one product category at a time. We’re kicking off with deep dives into some of the best-of-the best headsets, GPUs, Mice, Monitors, and keyboards from the last few years.
The Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum (See it on Amazon)sits at the top of the company’s mechanical keyboard lineup, just one notch below the flagship G910 models. The main difference between the G810 and the G910 keyboards is that the 910s offer an array of dedicated macro keys along with other fancy stuff like a wrist wrest and ARX Control integration, which a lot of gamers don’t need. As such the G810 Orion Spectrum is the company’s version of a stripped-down mechanical gaming keyboard with RGB lighting and media controls, and at $159.99 MSRP (often sold for around $110) its priced right in line with similar keyboards from Corsair, G.Skill, Razer, and others.
