Logitech is releasing a new mechanical gaming keyboard as an addition to it’s already great lineup of gaming peripherals, which include the Logitech G910 Orion Spark and the G303 Daedalus Apex Gaming Mouse.
The new keyboard is the G810 Orion Spectrum, which uses the company’s Romer-G switches, developed in-house as an alternative to Cherry MX and other brands. Like its predecessor, the new keyboard’s switches are completely RGB and backlit, so you’ll be treated to a fancy light show every time you turn on your computer. The actuation length is 25% shorter, which allows for faster keypresses–at least in theory.
The new keyboard is priced at $160 and uses Logitech’s software to allow users the ability to customize the color settings of every individual key. It also has advanced lighting effects that allow the keyboard to synchronize with the company’s other peripherals, such as its gaming mice.
The G810 has media controls so you can play, pause, and skip forward or backward with music while in-game. There’s also a volume scroller you can use to raise and lower your sound volume. A mute button silences everything.
In addition to all these features, the biggest draw to Logitech’s newest keyboard is the inclusion of a free game–Ubisoft’s The Division, which retails for $60. The game will be available as a part of every keyboard purchase when you buy the keyboard through Logitech’s website.
The G810 Orion Spectrum will release on February 8, 2016. It comes with a two-year warranty, just in case it breaks.
