The Logitech G610 Orion Brown has a volume wheel and dedicated media buttons, also has white programmable backlighting and macros. It's $99 on amazon and newegg.


You have any comments on this user talking about the keycaps on the Orion? I take it that it's all relative that I'm not buying top tier like Ducky or something if I go with the Orion... ?

Its true, they're thin, cheap ABS keycaps, like most gaming grade keyboards, its not the end of the world, but they will go glossy after a while and don't feel as nice as thicker caps.

For $120 Budget, look at the CM MasterKeys Pro keyboards.

Of all the mainstream companies that make keyboards, these are the best objective quality you will find. I personally dislike the new Razer keyboards, I used the 2012 BlackWidow for many years but thats when they used genuine MX Cherry switches, they have definitely cheapened their production since then.

Depending on what type of style you like also, the CM MasterKeys have high-profile cases which affect the sound signature and makes it feel more solid. This is another personal preference that I prefer as I just never liked the look for low-profile cases or that "floating" key style.

Hi all,

I'm looking to replace my tt esports gunit macro based mx black keyboard. I'm looking for a non linear gaming keyboard with macro keys, there seems to very limited suggestion. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Macro key on the left is a must, 6 or more if possible. Thanks all.

Corsair K55 would be my recommendation, it's not a bad keyboard for the price for what your looking for. If you have money to waste, the K95 is the "higher" tier version but I personally think that keyboard is way over priced.
