    VERY good mechanical keys gaming keyboard

    I've been a computer technician for well over 25 years. Choosing a keyboard is a highly subjective thing for me. I spent a long time reading reviews, going to various stores, and getting some hands-on time with other comparable modern mechanical keyed gaming keyboards. I mean, I REALLY spent a long time before deciding (like,several weeks) I came over from using wireless Logitech keyboards in the past, primarily. (MK550 wireless wave combo also still using my Logitech DiNovo KB, mediapad and mouse) I have a good bit of knowledge where mechanical KB's are concerned as well, I just haven't had one in awhile to use regularly, so I wanted to make sure I made the right choice. I started to get the Logitech G910 Orion Spark, but the Romer-G keys on it were really different on that particular model. I didn't think I could ever get used to all the different keys and how some were concave, some being plain and some at differing heights. I start from the perspective that Logitech has made great products that I have always liked in the past, and know that I usually can't go wrong (for my purposes) sticking with a known brand. I had a really hard time deciding between the various Mad Catz, Razer, and Corsair gaming keyboards. Ultimately, my decision had to be made in conjunction with getting a new mouse as well. I ultimately went with this G910 Orion Spectrum and the G602 wireless mouse. This combo gives me enough macros to utilize across all my games (mostly MMO). Although I realize there are new keyboards with more macro keys and combinations, as well as the same for the mouse, this keyboard and mouse satisfies my needs, even though I could've gone for a MMO specific mouse like the Corsair Scimitar or the Razer wireless chroma naga. In the end, I really didn't need that many extra macros on my mouse, and I saved a bit of money choosing the G602. The G910 Orion Spectrum keyboard specifically has a really great feel to it. The Romer-G keys are very well made, I prefer them to every cherry-model key I've ever used, both with and without O-Rings. This keyboard is VERY quiet to me, and the pressure is 100% right for my typing style. This KB is also very good for general use other than gaming. (a problem I knew I would have if I got the G910 Orion spark) The best features are the feel, the macro keys, the lighting, and above all else - the ARX dock. It's very nice to have my cellphone or tablet (or both) displaying various information as I game or work. The ARX apps are being developed by people that are VERY handy, and new ones are being developed. The community is a great resource. It's a feature that made the ultimate difference for me in my choice. The combination of multimedia keys, macro keys, the ARX dock, the very nice and customizable lighting is very cool. Having said all of this, there are negatives. The wrist rest is horrible. It doesn't fit well, made of a very, very flimsy plastic, and came off all the time. My solution was to use some removable mounting poster putty placed strategically on the underside of the rest so that it would not fall off or come apart from where it connects. Now it is rock solid stable. and is actually not a bad wrist rest, but for a keyboard that costs this much, it's not an improvement as they made with the keys on this model as opposed to the 910 Spark. The keyboard is made of plastic, it will turn off some users, and some of the anodized aluminum keyboards out there are much more durable. However, I take care of my equipment, so the fact that this is made of plastic is not a problem for me. In fact, it weighs less, and as I use it on my lapdesk, it becomes a plus for me. The big difference between this model and the Spark is that they redesigned the keys, and on this model, all have only a slightly concave depression that the fingers slide into as you type. It's really easy to get used to typing on it, the feel of the keys and the force to press them down is balanced just right, in my opinion. Best of all is the ARX dock. I've got mine setup so I can dock both my phone on the keyboard and ALSO use my tablet beside my KB. One app monitors my PC stats while the other I usually have set for a multimedia remote or set to display my in-game macros until I get used to them. It's best to go in-store and try out the feel of the keys, also get a feel of the way it's made in making your comparison of gaming keyboards. Feature-wise, it ranks up there with all other gaming KB's, and the ARX dock is super cool. I would recommend this KB, but be sure you are prepared for dealing with the wrist rest (mounting putty is a great way to make it stable where it clicks into place to the plastic frame of the keyboard). All in all, placing my faith in Logitech has come through for me again, as I am sure this keyboard will last me a very long time. I hope this in-depth review helps you to make your decision !

    I spent weeks researching keyboard switches online, what would I like? And more importantly what am I gonna not regret spending over a hundred dollars (for a keyboard) on? The clicky blue? The smooth red? The hybrid brown? The Speed of Speed? I finally had to get off my rear and braved the crowds at best buy around Christmas and spent over a hour shooing away employees as I tested every keyboard. All on sale. I wanted a mechanical keyboard with macros, gamer key (turn off the windows button) and media keys. They picking were slim the prices were high even online. Then I saw the Logitech 910 on sale for $79.99. But what the heck is RomerG? I asked myself. It felt weird compared to cherry switches, more rubber domed like at $15 keyboard. But it says it's mechanical. I had to goto my car and speed watch reviews on my phone, people really liked it, but said the keyboard is too pricey at $190. RomerG is Logitechs own switch built to last (80 million keystrokes vs Cherry's 60 million) and its actuation point is more comparable to Cherry Speed switches plus it does have a click to it, albeit very soft but compared to Cherry Reds it's there. I was skeptical but it had everything I wanted in a keyboard at a good price so I got it worried I'd regret it. It's now been 45 days and I don't regret it. This keyboard is amazing. The phone holder is a Godsend for when you're absorbed with something and worried you won't hear your phone or if you need to check something on it to compare. The macro keys are plentiful and easy to use. The RGB is easy to set up. The switches no longer feel like rubber domes but a actual switch that have a very satisfying (albeit soft) click to them but in games like Team Fortress have a great response time, it only took a few hours with these switches for me to fall in love with them. With 80 million keystrokes on this keyboard I'm sure it gonna last 10+ years Best way I can explain the switch is a hybrid of Cherry Browns and Speed. It's very gamer focus. It types fine but these switches isn't made for typing first, if you want mechanical for typing get browns or blue switches. The only 2 cons to this keyboard is it REQUIRES Logitech software to use the macros, media controls and RGB (the RGB goes into rainbow mode if the software isn't loaded and can be turned off via a button) and sometimes the software won't load upon turning the system on. The software is fine and not resource heavy but it is required. The second con is there is no USB pass through. This wasn't a deal breaker but for $180 MSRP it should had been there. So should you get this for $180? Eh probably not. It's a great keyboard, but it isn't a $180 keyboard either. But if you're a gamer and you see this anywhere on sale for under $100 don't even hesitate, the switches don't give you "love at first type" but they will give you a long term romance with them. If you can't wait for a sale (not sure why you couldn't, it's just a keyboard) then keep looking.

    This is just a quick review. I have been using an logitech wave keyboard for many years now so this does take a little time to get used to so just an FYI on that. Second the so called wrist thing is way too small / just simple plastic so coming from the nice padded wave keyboard it kinda is annoying. though I ordered a wrist and mouse rest to compensate for the lack. that is my ONLY issue with this keyboard. As for typing it is smoother then my old wave keyboard and feels nice as I type. It it about the same loudness as my wave keyboard with non mechanical keys though maybe a little louder but sounds great. I really love the ability to add macros and such to my keys and I have a few setup already being I am an admin on a few gaming servers and now I can just hit one button to message everyone in the game they did something stupid / remind them not to do things that is against the rules. SO that is much faster now so I can play more instead of typing. For work I setup a few of the keys to do a few things I do every day a LOT.. like the calculator, copy, paste, and so on.. The feel of the keys is very nice as you type.. I have played with a couple other keyboards with cherry switches and some VERY old keyboard a person at my office for some reason likes that has old mechanical keys (that one is not my liking though.. as you have to press harder and such).. Anyway I purchased this for under $100 (actually paid $119.99 plus tax then it went on sale to $89.99 so got the $30ish dollars back the next day :) so happy about that. I would have a hard time recommending this to anyone if it was more then the $120 I was going to pay (plus tax).. it took me a long time to finally pull the trigger on getting it and only did so because I had got a gift card and was able to reduce my out of pocket cost another 15 or so bucks.. I would defiantly not have got it if it were any more then the 120 it was being sold for. If you are a gamer / person that likes to type this keyboard maybe for you. I spent a LOT of time researching all the differences between the cherry keys and such and then found this while doing my research (weeks of it.. I know I take a while to purchase things for my computers if I have not used them a lot)... I don't want to toss money out the door.. so my .5 less stars I would like to put on this is because the wrist support sucks and darn it this thing should have a USB port!! on it.. I would LOVE if Logitech would come out with a wave designed keyboard with these keys!!!!! HINT HINT!!! if you read this.. IF they did I would run and buy one off those in a second and keep this one as a spare / on my other computer I use..

    A beautiful keyboard for typists and gamers

    Posted
    TheGreyCow

    First off, let me preface this review by stating that I've flip-flopped around between switch types for some time now. I started off with blues, then migrated to browns, and now have ended up in the proprietary Romer-G territory. Out of all of these, Romer-Gs definitely are my favorites. They are quiet enough to not disturb others while maintaining enough of the clickiness one comes to expect from a mechanical keyboard. They are comfortable to type on and great to game with in equal measure. The G910 Spectrum is also a phenomenal keyboard. While the original version, the Spark, was a bit too flashy for my tastes, with the asymmetrical wrist wrest and odd keycaps, Logitech did an awesome job listening to feedback from their customers and releasing a refreshed version. The Spectrum has typical cylindrical keycaps included no extra charge. Even the WASD, arrow, and G-keys have cylindricals, simply with a futuristic design on them to appeal to gamers. Although the keyboard is made of plastic, it has plenty of heft to it and feels high quality. It matches perfectly with a G502 Spectrum mouse. The LEDs are nice and bright without being overwhelming. They default to a pleasant "color wave" in the absence of a custom color profile. For me, I am currently stuck with a work laptop that I do not have administrator rights to, so I can't install the software required to control the colors. Even so, the wave is a decent enough holdover until I can get my new personal computer up and running. I can't give this keyboard fractions of a star. If I could, I would give it a 4.75 instead of a 5. This is because I'm coming from a G710+ which had a couple of features that I would have loved on the G910. For one, there is no longer a USB passthrough. For some users this is a good thing, as it means that the keyboard only has a single USB plug. However, I am a stickler for cable management, and the fact that I can't tuck my mouse cord under the keyboard to hide it from sight bothers me. In addition, there are only two brightness settings: On and off. The G710+ had four, if I'm remembering correctly, and you were able to independently control the brightness of the "gaming" keys and the "typing keys", i.e. the WASD/arrow/G keys and all others. Finally, the cord is just a regular glossy cord, not braided like the G502's is. It would have been nice if they had included that because I like it. All in all though, my cons are more of just preferences. For most, they will not affect your enjoyment of the keyboard in the slightest. To be honest, they're not affecting mine at all. This is an awesome keyboard and I can't wait to get more use out of it!

    Awful - Crashes Steam & Games!

    I just bought a new G910v2 keyboard. I'm running Windows 7x64. I installed the Logitech driver/app for the Keyboard, let the installer do the a standard setup. Then I tried to launch Steam. Steam would not start. No error message, no message, no onscreen popup.... just nothing, except you can see the stub in Processes (Task manager). No steam games will launch. However, ther games still start fine (e.g., non-Steam games). When I killed both the Logitech processes in Task Manager, everything runs fine again, e.g., Steam and games will launch. So... Logitech is such garbage. This new $129 keyboard is totally worthless if it prevents playing games. The mission of a Gaming keyboard is to play games. Failure to fulfill the mission means there is no reason for the Keyboard, and ergo the Logitech company, to exist. Where is that red button to eradicate all of them? If you enjoy hours spent solving bugs, glitches, crashed applications & games, and are excited to solve this stuff yourself because Logitech makes it effectively impossible to get help from them (their website and tech help is designed to ensure you don't reach them, and at that they succeeded 100%), then this keyboard is for you! They Romer-G keys themselves are great, I like them (but keys are subjective, so test them yourself). They keyboard only has 9 programmable keys, and it has an awful handrest (but I knew that and it was not a factor for me, but will be for some people). One thing that may put off some people: You do not get a light flare under each key, like Razor, Corsair, and other top keyboards. This is technical in nature: The outstanding Romer-G keys are designed to pass light through their center, up to the key letter... and this is done outstandingly, and makes they keys (the letters) brighter by far than any other top keyboard. The Cherry keys that most top keyboards use have an opaque central mount, and hence most keyboards are designed to flare light (e.g., the RGB colors) out from under the keys. This looks really nice; but the Romer-G keys do not do this, and hence you don't have the color between the keys. I knew this and don't mind; but my Razor Black Widow does have the color flares under they keys. I will be returning this keyboard, as the Logitech software is drenched in bugs, and is never welcome on my machine again. I am very glad I bought a Thrustmaster weel, not a Logitech G series. The Thrustmaster software is excellent and flawless. I never want to find out about the Logitech software in any other Logitech products again. Tech support is bad, and their software is a nightmare. That said, the nature of bugs like this means not everyone will have the same experience; e.g., this may not be triggered in Windows 8 (which is a disaster of an OS), or Windows 10 (which takes sustained intellectual concentration and determination to carve out all the embedded elements that spy on you, but can be made into a serviceable OS with effort). But Logitech derivers for the G-series products + Windows 7 x64 + Steam Games = total failure.

    Great Gaming Keyboard

    T he Logitech G910 is a great gaming keyboard. I find that the keys are responsive and excellent just for normal typing in addition to using it for gaming. This is the Second one in the house. When we set up a new computer for my son, he tried other keyboards but didn’t like the feel compared to my G910 so we purchased one for his computer. The Software is why I knocked one star off this otherwise great keyboard. Pros: -Great feel without having to look at the keys. -Very responsive -Dedicated audio buttons. -Button to lock on the Windows key so you don’t pop up the start menu in the middle of a game. -I really like that you can set the color of the keys different colors based on the game or program you are in running. -Additional G1 – G9 buttons, you can have them set up to launch some common apps like the calculator, password wallet program, email program, Visual Studio or you can set them up to do key combos like copy, cut and paste. -Volume Control is a scroll wheel which makes it easy to turn up/down the volume without looking at the keyboard. -Switch to shut off the backlighting when the computer is on but not in use. (more on this in cons) -Two-year warranty! Cons: -The software sometimes glitches and you have to go into and “enable per profile backlighting” to get your specific Default keyboard profile working again. -Could use more special effect modes. -Program Profiles could be easier to manage. -On my first G910, some of the blue LEDs on a few keys faded to the point where you could barely tell that the blue was lit. example if you selected purple for the whole keyboard, those select keys would be red while the rest were purple. This is an issue of RGB LED and not specific to just Logitech’s RGB keyboards. (The keyboard was about 20 months old when I contacted Logitech and after jumping through there diagnostic hoops the replaced it) I now shut the back light off when I am done using the computer to prevent this on the replacement keyboard.

    Great Keyboard, Software a Bit Flaky, Price High

    The keyboard lights up great, the fonts are clear and the keys include the sub items on them as well! I have been using a Logitech K800 keyboard for years and love the feel of it so this keyboard did have some getting used but I love it now. The keys all feel comfortable and just right amount of force and feedback. The use of the software is a bit confusing though and I had to check YouTube for guidance on how to use it. I also have a Logitech Gaming mouse and headset which also use the software. Under the mouse I can select the game .exe file and make changes to the files but under the keyboard all I can do is select the game .exe file. See Pic. I love how bright the keyboard is and how I can control each key individually. I am only giving the four stars because the software can be flaky. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Also the cable could be a bit longer and braided. The keyboard does sit really high compared to the K800 keyboard but I have place my 3M Gel wrist pad right on the bottom of the keyboard and raised the back up about an inch to get it to an angle that is comfortable for me. Overall I would recommend this keyboard and love gaming on it. With the lights down I can see all the keys clearly. I bought this on sale and do believe the regular price is too high. Thanks

    I have gone through a couple of keyboards during my gaming career. By far, this keyboard has been my favorite. I've used a few of the Logitech G series keyboards (G15, G510) and this one has been the best. It has a good software program that is relatively easy to use. You can change the color of every single key on the keyboard. It also allows you to run keyboard tests to see which keys are used the most, etc. The only issue with the software that I have is on a rare occasion it will not "activate" right when I turn on my computer. It normally will about 95% of the time...but the 5% of the time it does not, it will stick to a default color scheme, default macros, etc. which can be annoying. The only thing I have noticed to reset it is to either restart my computer or unplug and re-plug in my keyboard and the software will start up and run in the background like it is supposed to do. Another thing I enjoy about this keyboard is that is has 9 G keys (extra keys) that you can program to do what you want. The software allows you to macro them and even record keystrokes for custom macros that come in handy while playing some games. It also will recognize some specific games and those game commands that you can incorporate into your macros. You have the ability to customize 4 different keyboards that you can switch between fairly easy at any given time. All in all, this keyboard allows easy customization, it is visually pleasing, it is easy to use and navigate through the software, and while it does cost a lil chunk, it goes on sale very often. So, if you are willing to wait for the sale, you can get it for a good price.

    Not a good value for the price

    I have owned 4 of the Logitech G910 Orion Spark keyboards since the first day they came out, and they have the angled keycaps on it, and comes in a nice heavy duty storage box with outer sleeve, 2 wrist rests that are mainly left hand part covering the skeleton like frame of the bottom. The reason I've owned 4 is the R key has mysteriously shorted out on each and every one using for general gaming and coding. This cost me 46 more for the keyboard not counting warranty, and for 1 less wrist rest, and flat keys, no nice packaging(same as G810 packaging), and even the back of the keyboard still says G910 Orion Spark, with that referenced model number, rather than like the images would have you believe it should be G910 Orion Spectrum with its own model number. Still no sleeved cable, and only flat or 1 height adjustment, where the G810 Orion Spectrum is $20 less, has a sleeved cable, and 3 height adjustments counting flat. The lack of 9 G macro keys is the only difference other than the wrist rest, and it feeling a lot more solid. This costing more, and not even having a Tom Clancy's The Division code with it, really makes it an almost embarassing package to purchase for just the keyboard. Logitech has the flat Romer-G mechanical keysets on their website with a pull for $40, or just the angled key replacements for $24.99 that are on the Orion Spark. To tell me that the keyboard(same base design and make as the Orion Spark) costs $20 more without a wrist rest or keys on it at all, before adding the cost just isn't a justifiable cost for this purchase. Otherwise, if you can get it on sale for less than $140, do that, and order the keycaps and buy or 3d print a full length wrist rest and save yourself nearly $15 overall.

    Great Keyboard, Some Improvement over G910 Spark

    Personally, I have owned the Logitech G910 Orion Spark since fairly shortly after its initial release... And while its angled keycaps, and asymmetrical wrist rest were somewhat divisive, I have absolutely LOVED it. The Romer-G switches are a very unique, and subjectively great entrant into the mechanical gaming keyboard realm, blending the shorter throw, and softer actuation of membrane boards with the speed and tactile sensitivity of the traditional Cherry or other switches. As to this keyboard, the G910 Orion Spectrum, which is currently a Best Buy exclusive version of the earlier Orion Spark, with a now straight wrist rest, and the change back to more traditional, cylindrical keycaps... This is about the same for me as the Spark; I love it. All the previous benefits apply, from the Romer-G switches, to the perfect lighting, great software support for macros and other programming customisations (save for Arx, which is a bit of a joke, in my opinion), and the wonderful amount of thought that went into designing the ergonomics that make this (these) keyboard(s) such a pleasure to use. Now, as they are primarily intended to be marketed at gamers, the aesthetics may seem a bit gaudy, but not quite so bad as Razer. And honestly, my newfound love for Logitech's new switch would likely make it easy for me to forgive any other shortcomings, were I able to think of any to mention. I work in IT, data center management, and server administration, so I am often using my keyboard for so much more than gaming, and I have never found something that felt as comfortable, for me, to use for either work or play, and feel equally at home. Hopefully this doesn't sound like too much a an advertisement, but I really do love this keyboard, and my subjective view is that it is a fantastic option, IF you like the feel of the switches. If you don't, then none of the current Logitech mechanicals will thrill you (G910, G810, G410, etc.)... However, I feel that the blend between feeling like the more common membrane boards, the quietness of the actuation, along with the solid tactile sensation make for a wonderful alternative to the now very old Kalih and other switch options on the market. And if you're feeling really adventurous, the G910 Orion Spark, with its asymmetrical design, and differently molded keycaps is similarly worth a shot. Happy fragging.

    I have been using the keyboard for a couple weeks now and overall I am satisfied. Pros: Each key can change light color, complete with unique customized designs of your choice or use previously designed layouts using the free software download. The "arx dock release" aka the phone holder, works well and perfectly sized for my Note 9 (with bumper case) I have not used the suggested phone app as the reviews were poor and didn't have a need. Small Con: Un-customizable/always-on blue light is displayed for each: num lock, caps lock, scroll lock when turned on; plus the blue lights for the volume button and music control buttons in top right corner. Pro or Cons (depending on you): the keys hug your fingers (in my case this lead to my fingers tripping over other keys when typing fast, adjusting just fine) With this mechanical keyboard your typing will be heard by anyone in the room. Don't expect to add much height with the kickstand. Overall 4.5 out of 5 and would recommend; will adjust if anything goes wrong. Paid just under one-hundred USD(including tax) during sales for the general public in NOV'18. I have never owned an RGB mechanical keyboard until this G910 and dont regret it yet.

    Perfect Keyboard

    This keyboard is everything I was searching for. I started PC gaming last year on an Alienware laptop and recently wanted to play games in 4K on a new large monitor (TV). I had looked forward to buying a mechanical keyboard and finally bought a Razer Blackwidow Ultimate because of the clicky keys (green switches) and the clean design with backlighting. After trying it out I realized the clickyness was more of a distraction unless I was wearing headphones and I did not like the amount of force needed for actuation or the 4 mm travel to bottom out the key. My preference is probably due to playing on gaming laptops where the actuation and bottoming out distance are typically 2 mm total. I also tried the Razer tournament stealth since I am mostly playing FPS and action games, and do not require macro keys much, and wanted a quieter keyboard. The actuation force needed, the reset point and quieter keys were slightly better but still not quite as responsive or easy to use as a laptop or chiclet keyboard. I also contemplated buying a Razer Deathstalker which had good but not excellent reviews and it had a plastic, inexpensive feel. I still wanted a true mechanical keyboard because of the feedback of the keys. After trying several keyboards at different stores including some with Cherry MX red switches, I came across the Logitech G910 Orion Keyboard. In the store the keys felt much easier to depress and the scalloping of the keys helps locate the center of the key much easier. When I brought it home to play it was very easy to play on and the chroma lighting was bright with no bleeding of light between the keys which was perfect for playing at night. Since the actuation occurs at 1.5 mm and the key bottoms out at 3 mm, it was much more similar to the feel of playing on a laptop with little resistance to pressing the keys (especially the space bar is easy to depress) which is good for action and FPS games. The only criticism is there does not appear to be a USB passthrough or headphone jack to play with headphones. The only other keyboard I would have wanted to try is the Corsair K70 rapidfire with 1.2 mm actuation but the sale price on this keyboard made it a great deal. I would 100% recommend this keyboard if you prefer very responsive keys that are actually easy to type on as well.

    Nice keyboard, but defective by design

    This keyboard's RGB lighting is great, and different from most other keyboards, as the only parts lit up are the characters on the keys, not around the key, so there's no light bleed and it's a really nice, unique look that's very clean. The software is average, but I've used much worse. The keys themselves are not as tactile as I'd like; I'd say they're close to Cherry MX Brown switches, but maybe a little louder. I enjoy Cherry Blue and Razer's Green switches, so I prefer tactile and clicky, although I'm currently using Cherry's MX Speed switches, so I don't mind linear switches. The keyboard was nice to type on and the lighting was great, but I returned it. This is because inside the keyboard is a metal backplate, and it acts as a sounding board. So every key you press, there's an annoying "ping" sound that is easily heard over the keys. When you're typing normally, it becomes very annoying and cheap sounding. If you search for Logitech G910 ping you'll get lots of complaints about it. It's almost impossible to capture on a microphone, so I haven't seen any videos that have the sound, but it's definitely a thing. If Logitech would dampen the board with some internal baffles or something, I'd give this keyboard a 4.5 (-0.5 stars since they keys aren't as tactile as they advertise). The demo unit in the store didn't seem to have this issue, but stores are pretty loud and the sound pretty quiet, unless you're typing at home or in an office, where it's almost all you hear.

    Almost perfect keyboard unless you use linux.

    This keyboard is almost perfect in what I want in a mechanical gaming keyboard. Unfortunately there is one con for my exact situation. On the pros: It has adjustable back light that completely lights up all the keyboard symbols, The keys are mechanical, There are extra keys for media and programing, And it looks nice and feels solid. Unfortunately, there is one con: The keyboard does not let you use any on-board programmable storage. Instead of on-board programmable storage, the keyboard uses ram. This means that whatever adjustments are programmed into the keyboard, they are reset every time the keyboard is disconnected from power. Now, if you are using Windows or a Mac with logitech gaming software, those adjustments are loaded back into the keyboard the next time you boot up. However, I use Ubuntu and therefor I do not have excess to logitech gaming software. Usually with logitech devices, you can program them in windows or a mac before disconnecting them from that computer and connecting them to a Linux one if you want a specific configuration. But with the G910, those configurations are lost the moment the G910 loses power. Now, it would be actually fine to use it in its default state except that the default configuration has the back light as a flowing rainbow which becomes an eye strain very quickly. The only way to change the configuration of this keyboard for a Linux system would be to program it in windows or an apply OS before transferring it to a Linux OS without letting the keyboard lose power during the transfer, either by connecting it to a USB 3 output that is set to give power even when the computer is turned off or by connecting the keyboard through a USB hub that is connected to an external power supply. If you are a windows or mac user, then this keyboard will work fine for you; however, if you use Linux like me, then heads up on the programming issue.

    Keys falling off after a year

    I loved this keyboard when I purchased it almost exactly a year ago. It was replacing my Razer Black Widow Chroma keyboard which was noisy and would keep my husband awake when I was doing homework late or gaming. On top of this, the keys started to stick on the Razer, so I needed a replacement. This keyboard is everything you need it to be. The dial for volume on the top right came in handy on more than one occasion, the typing was smooth, and the macro keys are easy to configure. It's also far quieter than most. However, it is not without issues. 1. The "dock" for your phone will not fit every phone right. I have a Samsumg Note 8 and it felt clunky to put it there. 2. Said software that works with your phone gets really annoying fast and will eat your battery. 3. There's no onboard USB port. For a gaming keyboard that was $150 at the time of purchase, this should have been included. 4. As I said, my keys started to break off. Made for some interesting times during gaming when your primary keys are flying off and you have to adjust on the fly. It might be due to my heavy handed typing style, I don't know, but they shouldn't break off after a year. I've had other keyboards that didn't have this issue after years of use.

    Great but not Perfect

    Summary: This product is full of features and customize ability, although it doesn't have internal memory and the Arx app is kind of lame. Extended: The first thing you can customize is the key colors. With each key having their own LED tied to them, each key is a bright rich color. You can make multiple scenes for the keys, from rainbow waves, to the keys changing color when you press them and everything in between. The library within the gaming software is rather extensive. The second thing you can customize are the 9 G keys as hotkeys. You can put just about anything on the shortcut keys. I have some open programs and some on the left side just tied to keys on the right side of the keyboard so that I don't have to reach over to it. The Logitech Gaming Software makes creating the macros very easy. The Arx App for the keyboard is kind of blah. I thought it would show you in game stats based on the game you were playing and stuff, but all it shows you is how much of your PC resources you are using. The main thing I don't like is that your settings are not saved into the keyboard. There is no internal memory on the keyboard itself. So, what that translates to is that I cannot take this keyboard over to a friends and have all of my settings, and when I start up my computer it is in a default state until the software starts up and then kicks in for the keyboard. The keys are really easy to pop off and clean if you need to. clean out something from under the keys, or if you have had the keyboard for a while and you want to get all of that hair and dust and crumbs out of it.

    After shopping around for a new keyboard for almost a month, I bought this right away for one reason; in store, it was 99$. What a steal! I was so close to getting a G810 but once the sale started, it was a no-brainer. The keyboard will never slide around, and the Romer-G switches really allow RGB to shine. I'd say it's the cleanest keyboard I've owned. Pictures don't do it justice. The Romer-G switches themselves are fantastic. It's a great switch that has that tactile feel when making quick strokes, but just mushy enough so when writing an email, the sound isn't obnoxious. The keys in game, do they make a difference? Yes, I believe so. Any movement in say a shooter, really feels much more fluid with your mouse. But when snap shooting, it gives you the micro to precisely be where you want it. Cons: It's a big keyboard, which isn't a big deal for me but for others it may. Logoitech's software can be confusing but it's manageable. Overall, get it if you have the budget, get it ESPECIALLY if it's sub 100, and if you can't, get a G810, you won't be disappointed.

    The Best Keyboard EVER!!

    This is the best keyboard I've ever used in my life so far!! Here are the reasons why I love this thing so much!! And also some con's: PROS: *Mechanical switches are responsive and very quick. You still get a clicky sound when your typing, but it's not as annoying as MX Cherry Blue switches. * The LED lights are bright and vivid. You can choose from multiple effects, or just a static color. Either way, they look amazing. *The software is easy to use, and it saves your work automatically. So, there's no need to remember to click an "OK" or "Apply" button when your done with your customization's. *Finally, the wrist rest is perfectly positioned to help with long typing sessions. CON'S: *Not all the keys can change color. The media keys are the most noticeable. And it can get a little annoying. *While the wrist rest is comfortable, it isn't cushioned. So it's not as comfortable as it can be. *The keys can be fingerprint magnets. But there easy to clean, so it wasn't a deal breaker for me. There's very little not to love about this keyboard. And if the con's I mentioned aren't deal breakers for you, then this is an AMAZING keyboard for you to own!!

    High quality keyboard

    Not gonna lie, I thought I was buying a wireless keyboard (haha!), but it turned into a happy mistake because I really like it! It is mechanical and has a great feel, the keys have a satisfying feel and seem to be really durable. The backlight is super cool and the logitech gaming software allows me to sync the light color scheme with my mouse and rig for a very unified look. The cord is sturdy and good quality--I don't expect shorts anytime soon. Also, there is a mount for your phone on the back of the keyboard which is handy for me because I tend to work while listening to something on my phone and this keeps it in place and convenient. The only shortcomings I can think of are as follows: (1) I would rather it were wireless or had a wireless verson available, but there ia no wireless version yet. (2) The phone mount without a charging port seems like a missed opportunity to really justify the corded version, and could've taken the phone mount from the realm of novelty into the realm of really useful. Ultimately, I decided to keep it rather than return it because the keys have a very nice feel, the logitech gaming software and backlight is high quality, and I like the separate programmable buttons. I would recommend this keyboard.

    Absolutely fantastic, very usable keyboard

    So much has already been covered in previous reviews about the keys and functions that it is unnecessary for me to add comment on those aspects. I will comment on the weight and design as it pertains to my use of the keyboard because it may be valuable to someone else, who like me, uses it 100% of the time in their lap. If you are like me and use your computer in a lounging position with the keyboard on your lap then the weight may be an issue for you. The Orion really is very heavy. I can pick it up with one hand but it's something that I have to be thinking about it each and every time and I can hear the plastic body being stressed a bit when I do. My biggest worry is that some day I am going to bump it off of the bed and because it is so heavy, it is going to seriously break upon impact with the floor. Now, having said that, there are two parts of the design that make it perfect for the lap. First, the connecting wire is offset to the right-hand side and has a sturdy input connection. In the past, I have blown through keyboards because of the stress put on the connecting wires into the back, as they are almost always in the middle of the board and are constantly being stressed and moved while in my lap. With the Orion having the input on the back-right of the board, it receives ZERO stress from being positioned in my lap. Second, the underside of the board is surprisingly "grippy". It does NOT slide off of my lap. Ever. Even when I move around, it somehow stays in place. The surface underneath seems to make very little difference. It is hands-down the best board I have ever used in that aspect. The rubber feet underneath are also the best, most substantial that I've seen on a keyboard.
