"Keyboard Fetishist's Dream"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Full disclosure: I'm weird and creepy, and I have a bizarre obsession with keyboards. With that out of the way, I have nothing but positive things to say about the Logitech G610.

It's small, so you're left with a ton of desk real estate, and despite its size the build quality is really good. (Unlike my Razer Blackwidow, which is a rickety abomination with malfunctioning Kailh keyswitches.) It has a fair bit of weight to it, and height-adjustable rubber feet that prevent it from sliding all over the desk. The Cherry MX Blue keyswitches give you a ton of tactile feedback, along with that comforting clickety-clack typing sound so beloved of mechanical keyboard nerds everywhere. The backlighting comes in any colour you like, just so long as it's white – which is fine, as I spend most of my time typing up documents or playing games, not attempting to trigger keyboard-induced epileptic seizures.

You can download the Logitech Gaming Software from their website, which allows you to configure everything from hotkeys to lighting setups. The media keys all work as intended (but aren't mechanical), and the customisable ‘game mode’ key is useful for those players prone to accidentally tapping the Windows key in the middle of a frenetic fire-fight. You don't get a headphone jack, USB ports or a wrist rest, but you do get 26 key rollover, so you can flail hysterically at the keyboard knowing that every rage-fuelled keypress will register without fail.

For the money, the G610 is a solid keyboard, a pleasure to use, and should serve you well for a long time to come. (Unless you have anger management issues and routinely thrash your keyboard half to death – in which case, your mileage may vary.)

"9/10 Keyboard"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Great keyboard no flex on the body and has 3 adjustable heights, comes with scroll wheel and dedicated media keys that work well with Spotify. Cable is braided and stiff enough. If you're thinking about grabbing this keybaord just do it you won't regret. Packaging that the keyboard came in was secure had plenty of airbags and bubble wrap. Only thing that's missing from this keybaord is a USB passthrough.

"Love almost everything about it."
5 stars"

If you're an ESDF player you'll have no problems, if you're a WASD player it could do with a tad more at the end of the keyboard so you can rest your fingers (helpful for some games).

Time-honored Mechanical
Cherry MX mechanical switches are standard in mechanical keyboards. More consistent in feel and responsiveness, they last longer than rubber dome keyboards. These low-noise switches have a linear keypress for rapid-fire actuation.* Cherry MX switches are rated to over 50 million keystrokes and actuate precisely for a reliable gaming experience.
*Media controls do not use mechanical switches.mechanical key switches.

Customizable Backlighting on every key
Choose your level of customization by selecting and personalizing each individual key light, using Logitech Gaming Software. Keep track of spells and other commands with light up keys. Logitech Gaming software can also synchronize light patterns with other Logitech G devices.

Never miss a beat
Stay in your game while you control your background track. G610 Orion Red keyboards feature dedicated media controls that can be used to play, pause, and mute music and videos instantly. Skip to the next song with the touch of a button, or use the roller to adjust the volume,

Easy personalisation
Gain full control of G610 with Logitech Gaming Software. Assign custom button macros on F1 through F12 to customize your favorite game. You also get full control of per-key backlighting and can customize which keys are turned off when you turn on game mode (by default, Game Mode disables the Windows key).

Press all the buttons
Execute every complex move exactly right, every time with multi-key input. With 26-key rollover, you can press a huge number of keys plus modifier keys (Control, Alt, Shift) in any order and still get exactly what you intended.

Three step angle adjustments allow you to set your keyboard to 0, 4, or 8 degrees for the angle right for you. Rubber feet keep your keyboard stable during intense gaming action.
