Logitech hardly needs an introduction as a company. For decades, the company is omnipresent in the peripherals market. From low-cost office keyboards to advanced gaming mice and from headsets to console gamepads, the company offers numerous products for nearly every kind of system.

Successful as the company may be, Logitech’s first endeavor to release top-tier mechanical keyboards was not quite up to the company’s well-earned reputation. The first few models that the company released had certain drawbacks and failed to convince reviewers and customers alike that they were deserving of their very high retail price. Logitech however did not sit on their laurels. After the company had amassed enough feedback, they released new keyboards, some based on older models with certain corrections, and a few others based on new designs.

Today we will be having a look at Logitech’s new flagship mechanical keyboard, the G910 Orion Spectrum. It is largely based on the infamous G910 Orion Spark, essentially correcting the issues that kept the previous model from gaining traction. This review also marks our first look at a product with Logitech’s Romer-G switches, which are made by Omron and are exclusive to Logitech.

Packaging and Bundle

Logitech supplies the G910 Orion Spectrum in a wide, yet very thin cardboard box with narrow walls. The company probably tried to minimize the shipping costs of the keyboards, but the level of shipping protection is only borderline acceptable. The artwork on the box is very simple and serious, based on a good picture of the keyboard itself. Logitech bundles nothing other than a basic quick start guide alongside with the G910 Orion Spectrum.

    Wow that's expensive for a non customizable, non serviceable, no frills mechanical keyboard. I mean the Das Keyboard, and especially those from Thermaltake and even Corsair, offer basically the same functionality with more features and serviceability for half the price.

    I don't expect them to sell many of these outside of Beat Buy where it will appeal to people who want to "spend the most money to get the best product"

    So they fixed the horrible key caps? Couldn't type on the G910 Orion, even after a week or use. Had to send it back.

    Great keyboard. I didn't have a problem with the Orion Spark keys, so I'm not sure why they'd change the key design for the spectrum. I don't have the spectrum and I bought the spark for $60 USD on black friday. Best keyboard purchase ever. The per game and dynamic key lighting is fantastic. Major downside IMO is the lack of a USB passthrough, since the cheaper offerings sometimes offer it. No lateral key wobble that I've experienced on the Spark

    Here I thought I got mine for a pretty decent price. Nice catch for $60.

    Could someone shed light on whether this keyboard's keys are as tightly packed as the G710 models?
    One of the biggest issues I have with the G710+ is that the keys are too densely fitted.
    I just measured the distance between the left and right Shift keys and it is 11 and 1/16 inches long. Would really appreciate a measurement. Thanks.

    Any chance you could get one of the original model M keyboards in for review? U icomp still makes them. I'd be interested in how it stacks up with modern mechanical keyboards.

    Is it just me or is this site going to the dogs? This is the second uninteresting keyboard review I've read here in recent weeks. I guess this is a gamer's review site now, huh? I'll pass.

    180 $ is way too expensive for a plastic non-cherry mx keyboard.

    Regarding macro buttons, I know of no gamers using them, and I'm really wondering if I simply do not know enough gamers, or if it's the ultimate non used feature.
    In many games, it is forbidden to use macros keys, and in even more games on professional encounters.
