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.
