A MECHANICAL KEYBOARD
You don’t need to be a self-proclaimed “gamer” to appreciate the faster, clickier feel of a good mechanical keyboard.
Logitech’s new G610 Orion, which we’ve been using for the past few weeks, fit that bill:
It’s sturdy and satisfying, with smooth matte keys (that hide fingerprints) and the ever-reliable Cherry MX switches (in either Red or Brown) underneath the hood.
There’s a handy set of basic media controls on top of that, and Logitech’s useful software suite lets you customize a few macros without much trouble. While it can’t put on the same RGB light show as pricier models, there’s still white backlighting, and the whole thing passes as more professional-looking than many of its peers.
Those unfamiliar with this market may scoff at paying $120 for a keyboard, but this is one of those things you have to try yourself to understand.
In the G610’s case, you get what you pay for, making it a good value if you’re willing to invest in a better-feeling keyboard that’ll hold up to hours of stress in the years to come.
Just try to keep it at home, since, per usual, it can get a little loud.
