The first thing you’ll notice is that the keyboard is unevenly shaped. Your left hand gets most of the benefits, especially when gaming. You will probably need to make some room on your desk. The keyboard is massive and quite heavy, but at the same time really comfortable for gaming.
The G keys are easy to reach. They have been re-positioned for optimal speed and accessibility. There are five of them on the left side and four right above the “F” keys. There are also media controls with volume dial.
Romer-G vs Cherry MX
One of the main features of the keyboard is the Romer-G mechanical switch and in my opinion, Logitech reinvented the gaming keyboard with it. The new switch is 25% faster than any cherry MX switch. As we all know, in gaming, every millisecond counts.
It bottoms out at 3mm and actuates at only 1.5mm. It’s much better than a comparable cherry MX. The lifespan of the keys is up to 70 million keystrokes, which is more than almost everything you can find on the market today including the leading competitors.
The Romer-G led is build right into the center of the switch. This way the keys are illuminated more evenly. The RGB lighting is adjustable and it allows you to choose between 16.8 million colors. Some people might find the key caps odd, but in my opinion, they are uniquely shaped and look really good. The angular surfaces help keep your fingers in place and prevent mistyping. Speaking of RGB, take a look at our buyer’s guide Top 7 Best Gaming Headsets to Buy. Some of them have RGB lights too and will suit perfectly your gaming gear.
