We thought that keyboards are made in just one or two styles with the similar specs. But with the new Logitech Gaming Keyboard G810, you will get to have a more exciting experience with gaming since keyboards are one of the primary extensions for playing our favorite video games.
This mechanical keyboard has key caps backed by its own mechanical switch. Logitech has created this for a better gaming performance. On a review by Tom’s Guide, this mechanical keyboard is found to be “a well-designed piece of hardware with gorgeous lighting and some very welcome media control buttons.”
Logitech Gaming Keyboard vs. Regular Keyboard
This new keyboard is more than the cheap and rubber membrane key switches which cause typographical errors, has slower response and an uncomfortable feel. The circuit boards of a regular keyboard cannot track more than three to four simultaneous key presses which could be lethal in games where you need to press many keys at once.
There is no doubt that the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G810 is more reliable, responsive, and satisfying than its cheap variants.
G810 Specs and Price
The Logitech Gaming Keyboard G810’s specs are the following:
- 25% shorter than the regular Cherry-MXs. They hit the actuation point sooner and has a faster input response.
- has a good typing feel
- moderate noise profile comparable to the highly praised Cherry MX Brown switches
- Chording (the ability to recognize many keys at once)

The G810 costs $179. It is definitely worth its price. The difference between this gaming keyboard and a regular keyboard is definitely apparent.
