That being said, I am absolutely in love with my G810. It is an absolute dream to type on. The thing that is so amazing about it, though, is that there is absolutely no backlight bleed from under the keys. Logitech's Romer-G switches are freakin witchcraft!

Don't get me wrong. I would love a g810... I bought a 710 for $40, but returned it promptly due to the really weird shape of the keys, they just felt uncomfortable. I loved the volume scroll wheel though, it will be greatly missed =(. I considered a 910, but the look was a bit too exotic for my taste... Simple, clean, and elegant - but I cannot justify the additional $70 for the time being... I can't wait till the price trickles down a lot.

That's the thing with rubber dome keyboards, 95%of them have crap construction. Still, a few of my friends insist that they either don't see a difference or prefer rubber domes. Crazies. To be fair they keyboard I loan out is my Ducky Shine with red switches. Blue switches are definitely the most distinct ones.

I dunno, laptop keyboards are all very different. Some are done a lot better than others. I'm fine with 1.5-2mm of travel. My HP Spectre x360 has an amazing keyboard compared to most laptops. I can almost keep normal full sized keyboard typing speed on them.

Best laptop keyboard I've ever typed on was an old thinkpad. I don't have it anymore so I can't compare it to a mechanical, but I know I can't stand any other keyboard I have tried. Which does include a Spectre x360. I've also tried a Pro 4 and the Lenovo Yoga 3. If I ever do go with a laptop, I'm probably gonna go towards a Spectre 360 copper version, but I'm still gonna hate the keyboard.

Tried the 810 in Best Buy the other day. I might have to buy it to compare it better against my 910.

I've always been able to tell the difference. But a lot of the people I know don't actually type a whole lot, so if you're not a touch typer and you don't type a lot, there's not gonna be a whole lot of difference.. a keyboard will be a keyboard. lol

I didn't say it was the best, but it was better than all the models I tried out at Fry's or Best Buy... the Dell XPS 15 was a close second. I don't mind typing on it, but of course I'd rather have a full sized keyboard. And I'm really loving these MX Reds. Great switch for me.

Your friends have some terrible nerve endings in their fingers biggrin.gif
Your problem is giving them Cherry MX Reds. People who are used to rubber domes needs to try out tactile switches always first to make them a believer and the best switch I've always found to convert people are the MX Blue. Pretty much the Weed of the keyboard world as it opens the gateway for all the other switches.

I'm moving from a G15 (O.G.) to the G910. I can definitely feel the difference between the two, and I don't mind the quietness of the ease with which I can press the keys on the G910 at all. If the G810 is the same keys, owners should be happy. I can only think the real mechanical key sticklers could find fault.

Just received it for review.
I must be the king of quality control - I swear I find flaws where others don't.

G810 bug:
After it being fully udpated (FW + software) - the G810 on Key Press mode (lighting effect) results in the NUM LOCK, CAPS LOCK and SCROLL LOCK lights to not activated and deactivate when being switched on, despite the actual buttons functioning fine.




First impressions of the KB:
Soft touch, feels like MX Reds but with a slight bit more bump to it (unlike the Apex M800).
Keyboard is missing accessories like the key puller and a wrist rest.

Performance is fantastic so far, can't complain.
Sound wise it's nice and silent, but has somewhat of an odd reverb to it when being typed on very fast, whereby the switches sound like they're bouncing. As if they're buckling spring switches.
Can't quite pin down the sound but it's a mix of switch + the G810's plastic casing + key caps.


EDIT:
Here are some pics smile.gif

Thanks for the pics! thumb.gif

Do you find the keys say on well? Just looking at the picture you posted of the underside of the key cap and it doesn't look like the most robust attachment IMO. Maybe it's fine, but was just curious. smile.gif

It seems to me that the top left logo and a couple of light are permantly set to blue which means its not a true RGB plus it messes with my rigs looks so sadly ill have to give it a pass.

Actually the top left logo and aux lights/media buttons are set to a color based on your profile. They are RGB as well.

I can confirm you are correct on this. Mine acts the same way. What I found is you have to wait at least one second to press the button again in order for the lights to react. It's a very strange bug, indeed.

Np - yeah the keys stay on well from what I have been testing, better than on my G710+.
With that said, with time, I feel its small plastic insides will start to give way as they did with my G710+ and thus start breaking - whereas unlike the Cherry MX replacement keys I can get, the G810 uses Logitech's own switches, meaning a replacement will be hard to come by, especially if we're speaking in 3 years time or so.

It's sad to reject a keyboard based upon the lights. But as Pistol said, they are customisable with the colour profile of your keyboard.
Glad you found the same error!
