    Been waiting for this!

  •  

    Any good? I'd be coming from a keyboard that came with some shitty ass HP computer lol.

  •  

    Is coolermaster better?

  •  

    Does anyone prefer the Romer G switches in this?

    •  

      Me! Bought the G Pro and absolutely loving it.

    •  

      Yes, less clicking noise. I have a G910 Orion Spark.

    •  

      I have both 810 spectrum (work) and 910 spectrum (home) and absolutley love the romer gs. Dont know why but they do feel different to each other cos theyre supposed to be the same switches but they do feel much more solid than the cherry blues and browns, on a different brand keyboard at least, which feel more plastic-y now.

      I don't know if i prefer them as i haven't used the cherrys, but i can say i like them. Using the G810 at home and it feels so good to type on.

    •  

      Romer-G is my second favorite after Topre.

    These keyboards are great! Not too noisy and works in an office environment

  •  

    I've been using this since the pricing error when it first came out through Harvey Norman, i like it : )

  •  

    does it make that cool clicky sound?

  •  

    How do the switches compare to Cherry Brown?

    • +4 votes

      Cherry Brown lots better. THese Romer G feel like membrane keys, very uneven feel and space bar stabiliser is horrible.

      •  

        Thanks for the advice, I'll stay away from this then.

        Going to have to disagree there. These feel just fine and even to me.
        OP -> Go to JB and just try it out. KB's can be a "personal" thing with the feedback / tactility of them

    •  

      Romer-G are most similar to MX Cherry Red. They have the same 45g force required but they actuate at 1.5mm rather than 2mm.

  •  

    Aw, no G keys on this model. I love those, so useful with a bit of setup.

    •  

      Just out of interest what do you set them up to do?

      •  

        You can set them to pretty much any other key, you can set them to run macros, set them to program shortcuts etc

      •  

        On Watch Dogs 2, I set them up for map and various other cellphone apps like the Uber-type thing and the Instagram type dealie. Much easier than remembering which keys were which on the keyboard, or pressing tab and opening them from the cellphone homescreen.

  •  

    anything like cherry mx blues? I'm skeptical about these non cherry keys

    •  

      NO way close. I don't know why logiteceh spent so much money developing these romer g switches with omron. They are a lot quieter than cherries

    I own this keyboard and can vouch that it's good quality. I paid $155 for it and even at that price I'd be happy to buy it again.

    Thanks quanticism I already had the G610 from EB games deal here a couple of years ago (a fraction lower than this) it's very good except when starting PC entering password
    keyboard lighting wave effect runs by default until after Windows 10 starts up !!! (can be a challenge entering password sometimes)

    The G810 I think retailed for $249 when it was first released (mostly $140+ now) I really want the RGB programmable lighting this has the G610 can go to the old PC thanks for postingf this deal :)

    •  

      Just a heads up that the 810 still has the wave effect (rgb wave tho) until the os and lgs boot up. This is due to not having onboard profiles with the keyboards. Not an issue for me tho, love the solid feel of the keys and keyboad.

        Pro tip. Kill the Logitech software (Lcore.exe) with taskmanager and you will unleash the beast. It does have onboard profiles, to an extent, its just that the stupid software sets the wave effect when it closes. By killing the process it will keep whatever effect you have chosen by not giving it a chance to switch to wave.
        Also disable it from startup to prevent having to kill it each time.

          .
          Great tip bigjezza :) that explains why sometimes if there is a problem and I go into Safe Mode then restart Windows Normal while in Safe Mode
          it doesn't do that "wave effect" ……disable it from start up ……is what I'll do ……THANKS !

  •  

    Why is $50 off the G910, still more expensive than online shops? :(

  •  

    When does this deal end?

    Ive owned this keyboard since the day it was released and it has only one major flaw. You cant ever remove the keycaps. This is due to the custom key switches. So you can never clean the keyboard. Its also not water proof so its dead if you spill anything on it. Good keyboard short life cycle in short.

  •  

    Thanks for posting quanticism, I've been keeping an eye out for a decent mechanical keyboard thats not too noisy and a good compromised between daily work and gaming. From feedback here and online reviews the G810 looks on the money

    Should be a nice upgrade from my current Logitech K120!

  •  

    Its gonna be an upgrade on my $5 Woolworths keyboard.

    However I did note that 20 $5 woolworths keyboard would probably outlast this.

    And the Outlast bit was free.

  •  

    It's a nice keyboard, although I do prefer dedicated macro keys to keep my function keys open for other stuff.

    $199 this morning

    I've had my G810 for 9 months now and it's exactly what I wanted for my Gaming Rig and I'm using it with my 5k iMac with a kvm switch. The keys become polished with regular use and the most used keys don't have the same resistance as the less used keys. It's like there's a friction on the keys when new that smooth out with use. It's not a huge issue but once the keyboard wears in its very nice to use. It's a very fast key press with predictable actuation. The volume and play button controls are perfectly placed. If I completely killed this keyboard with coffee or wine I'd buy another one.

    •  

      @6828 Do you remap the windows keys for use with your Mac?

      •  

        No I've left it as labelled. I've been using PC keyboards with my Macs for couple of years so it's pretty natural. I use a Wireless Logitech at the same time too that has the Cloverleaf key, which doesn't trip me up too often. Maybe when using Photoshop I get a little caught up.

  •  

    Has a terrible spring vibrating sound that a few reviews mentioned, extremely annoying and I'm returning it immediately :\
