Introduction, Specifications, and Pricing

Logitech has been in the peripheral game as long as we can recall, and in that time, they have delivered some of the coolest keyboards available. One of the first things to come to mind with aging Logitech keyboards is that certain models had a fancy LCD that would display all of the pertinent system information, and could even be hacked to do many other things as well. Although it seems the age of keyboards with an LCD may be dead from Logitech, that does not mean they have thrown out the idea entirely. They have just evolved along with technology and are letting an app do it for them these days.

 

 

While the LCD screen was just one of many features of the Logitech G lineup, they still are trying to evolve in every way possible. Rather than opting for the basic mechanical switch options, they took to developing their own in conjunction with Omron, delivering what are called Romer-G switches. Also, what rides on the switches has been changed, and rather than the standard key caps, Logitech has moved to a faceted cap. They have kept a lot of the G-Series keyboard offerings as well, like multiple profiles, a multitude of G-keys, a full set of multimedia keys, as well as delivering a product that is sure to come with the reliability everyone has had with previous Logitech products.

 

There is still plenty more that is offered with the Logitech G910 Orion Spark that we are about to show today, and we feel that Logitech has made huge strides to sway you from other keyboard makers. One crutch to older designs was software, and even as far as that goes, Logitech has stepped up their game a bit since we last saw it. With all their ducks in a row, they may have sent us the best Logitech keyboard we have ever used. Stick around and see why we feel this way, and gauge if the G910 Orion Spark RGB Mechanical Gaming keyboard is the one for you as well.

In the provided specifications chart, we are given the 920-006385 part number, and it is then explained that this G910 Orion Spark comes with a two-year warranty. Things move quickly into the system requirements of Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, but we also found no issues in Windows 10 either. Then, of course, you need a PC with a spare USB 2.0 port, and an internet connection to obtain the software and firmware. It then moves into what comes in the box, and we see there is a keyboard, a large palm rest, a small palm rest, and some documentation.

 

On the right side, we are given the measurements of 505mm from left to right, 210mm from front to back, and 33.5mm of thickness. The whole thing weighs in at 3.3 pounds. We are given six feet of cable for connectivity, and last we see that the ROMER-G switches boast a 70-million click lifespan. They do not mention that the keyboard is made of plastic, nor do they mention its black coloration. They do not make mention of the RGB illumination options, or the magnetic attachment of the optional palm rests. You need to have a look at the G910 Orion Spark to get even a hint of the aesthetic design.

 

The G910 Orion Spark can be found just about anywhere, and we are noticing that to obtain this keyboard, you will have to dig deep into whatever it is that holds your hard earned dollars. This assertion is based on the MSRP, and it being set to $189.99 by Logitech. At that cost, we would find it to be one of the top five most expensive keyboards we have reviewed. However, as time has passed since its release, e-tailers have dropped pricing to add a bit more bang for the buck. Looking around for the best deal, we thought Newegg and their $149.99 listing may have had it, but you can get it even cheaper. If you choose to go to Amazon right now, we found the G910 Orion Spark RGB listed at just $134.99 with free shipping. Getting twenty-five percent off the MSRP is a huge price break, and at that price, everyone will find it tough to deny this keyboard serious thought when it comes to your next mechanical keyboard purchase.
