I have purchased it with big expectations and excitement. In the time of one month of daily use of 3-6hrs a day, 5 days a week, I have ended up in the 25th day with non working led lights in multiple keys. W,A,S,D,Z,ENTER,L,R key led lights stopped working. I have tried anything but seems like the LED chips burnt somehow. No spill no eating around of it, I am highly skilled in technology and pretty skeptical about keeping things clean and in good shape for long term.
Keyboard felt somewhat smaller as I switched from G15 after 11 years of use (it is still working). buttons were great and highly responsive. nice touch with ARX DOCK and LED setup, software came with it was amazingly convenient to use. it is little bit noisy, even tho it says it is a quiet keyboard , I SAY NO! NOT AT ALL. For long text writers or translators or typewriters this is a noisy keyboard if you start typing long texts. You can heard metal or spring echoing from the inside once you start typing fast.
overall I am highly disappointed in logitech g910 orion spectrum. Especially when lights stopped working on some keys, I was ready to move away from logitech. Anything else I am still on logi but keyboard, not until they make better quality ones. or maybe i got a lemon, i am not sure but big of a company and brand like that should not have lemons in orange farm. returned it, maybe next time on a different model!
There are good things about this board: The keys are very responsive and quiet (vis-a-vis the mechanical standard cherry mx). The two locations for game keys and the memory keys are very well placed for access with one hand. Lighting control is good. Everything is done through the Logitech Gaming Software. The volume roller is very precise. I don't use the media hot keys, but they're there.
There are silly and outright dumb design decisions though: 1.) The palm rest is narrow and extremely steep. I've never encountered one with so sharp an incline before. 2.) The palm wrest cannot be adjusted or removed. It's fully integrated into the keyboard. This makes using a 3rd party cushion impractical because it sits too far away or rolls off at an odd angle. I cannot convey how unhealthy and cumbersome this design flaw is for even 5 minutes of continuous typing.
There are other, less dire issues as well: 1.) The legs/raisers on the bottom of the keyboard do little or nothing to change the angle of the keyboard, but they do make the angle of the already too steep wrist rest even steeper! 2.) File this one under the useless gimmick category, but what the hell am I supposed to do with a cell phone holder that doesn't charge the phone? In this day and age, throw in a basic wireless charger and raise the price $5. Or how about a USB port to charge the phone with while it's sitting in that cradle? This stupid phone cradle is so poorly thought out that there's not even a way to route a charge cable from the bottom on the phone (where most USB(-C) ports are located). The phone tray isn't a deal breaker by any means, but it gives the air of something that someone thought-up and sent off to production without the slightest bit of critical thought to how the "feature" would perform in the real world.
I DO NOT recommend this keyboard. You can get any number of keyboards with all or more phone/peripheral integration than this one without locking you into its unhealthy ergonomics.
this keyboard is super plastic and not mechanical. it uses switches that imitate mechanical but just from their feel alone you can tell it's not, the rgb for the keyboard is very poor. there is a lot of light bleed and the colors aren't true. the Logitech software is abysmal, and feels like it was slapped together by a marketing team rather then an actual developer. for 100 bucks it's not the worst keyboard you could buy, but i don't expect this keyboard to last very long under heavy use. the redeeming qualitys are the fact that it has a good number of extra macro keys which i often use, and the volume slider which i loved using on my k70 lux which recently broke. if your in a situation like mine where your keyboard just broke and you can't afford a nice at the moment, then this one will get the job done. but if you can spend the extra money don't buy this keyboard.
I read a lot of great reviews on this keyboard, so I purchased it to replace my aging Corsair. Boy, what a mistake. The keys are really tightly packed together and I did not like the mechanical action on them. I used it for about 4 days to see if I could get used to it, then boxed it up and sent it back. The G903 mouse I bought with it is really good and I kept that.
needed a replacement for my old school g13 (old one with the 18 buttons) and picked this up as it had the same general footprint and after using one type of keyboard for so long it really sucks transitioning your muscle memory to a different style unless you like lots of typos.
This worked great for about six months and i must say the color programming was a really neat feature, unfortunately for some reason it took a dump on me and whenever i plug it in to a USB port it just repeats the same keystroke locking up the computer until it is unplugged. maybe i got a lemon or maybe quality control has dropped, logitech has always been quality in the past.
Love the feature set and the overall design is great for gaming and music production. I've been a fan of Logitech products since the 80's. Generally very good designs and reliability. (Still have a 3 button mouse from the 80's kicking around here in my studio.) This one however has shaken my faith in Logitech and their current customer support.
So here are some things you need to know before you pull the trigger on this and other Logitech keyboards with ROMER-G mechanical switches:
1. Switches are great but the key caps do not hold up and will break within a year or two. The most common keys if you are an FPS gamer are going to be AWSD and left Ctrl. Key caps have VERY brittle posts and are easily snapped off during normal use. 2. If it's still under warranty, you'll be inconvenienced until the new key cap comes or they replace the board. If not, you are out of luck and will be replacing the entire working keyboard because a .50 cent part was poorly designed and is broken. 3. 3rd party parts (ie; Key caps) are scarce and VERY expensive. Since the ROMER-G switches are Logitech propitiatory switches, your options are very limited and currently Logitech support has not come back to me yet on if they will just sell me a .50 cent replacement "S" key cap. (Yes, warranty expired last month) 4. Support. Though I'm sure they are just following their run book, I would expect they would make allowances for a product that has a known manufacturing defect to be more concerned about customer satisfaction and reputation. Search on the key cap problems and you'll see what I mean. 5. G-HUB software. Though it got off to a very rocky start, it does look to be somewhat stable now and has some very cool features that I would miss should I decide to move to a new platform. Flashy stuff is cool but well made products and support are much more important.
My recommendation is to go into this with your eyes wide open on a purchase of a Logitech keyboard with ROMER-G switches and understand the issues you will eventually encounter with these products. They are great keyboards as long as their keys stay on.
This has got to be the most I have ever paid for a keyboard that feels so flimsy and cheap. It is the board itself feels like cheap plastic. I have gotten a better feel out of a $30 keyboard. The controls are built well and I really enjoy them but they body is just crap.
I have a kid who has pulled the keyboard off of my desk 2 times. Both times a romer g switch has popped apart and not been able to be put back together. I will be attempting to return the keyboard, but am not sure if they will refund me for the damaged product. This fault is my biggest frustration. The romer g switches are quiet but are definitely lacking when compared in feel to that of the cherry mx.
The volume of the switches is the only reason for 2 stars. I can not recommend this product for anyone who wants something to last or expects a quality feel from their purchase. Little sad about that as I have always been a fan of LG products.
Its a beautiful keyboard. Software for it is quite nice. The feel and sound are great. However after only 2 months of casual use the "W" just came off during gameplay. Saw that a replacement kit was $50! Contacted support and they wanted me to mail them the keyboard first so they can inspect it and decide if they're going to send me a replacement. ?? So you want me to wait around for who knows how long without a keyboard? Way to stand behind your high-end product. Never again.
Good keyboard, and satisfied with this vendor (Honest_Shop1), the one I bought this item from the first time (EZ-TRADE INC) came in a smashed box with the wrist rest broken off. No problems with this one --> UPDATE - This keyboard sucks, keycaps keep breaking I really want to like this keyboard but it's constantly BREAKING! The keycaps, specifically First one lasted only 10 months before a few keycaps BROKE Second one lasted only 3 months before a keycap BROKE It's a "gaming keyboard," you'd think the WASD, etc group of keys would, ya know, NOT CONSTANTLY BREAK Gonna try to RMA it, but WILL NEVER BUY Logitech Keyboards EVER AGAIN!! Gonna try Steel Series
This is a little late, but it's all right, minus the fact the E key doesn't work.... when it said, slightly used, I was expecting some scratches on the chassis, or something along those lines, which I got in the form of a kickstand on the bottom of the keyboard, which I didn't mind, but as I typed I noticed the E key worked once in a blue moon if I smashed it down with the force of a meteor.... which is kind of important. I don't like to complain, so it leads to my downfall and losing my 110$ which is entirely my fault.... so a 2-star rating for me too.
