[LOGITECH] Introducing Our New Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Page 16

Logitech does sell keycaps for the Romer G switch... the issue is that its the stupid cupped ones that they put on the G910/410.

http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/romer-g-keycap-kit

Don't know how long before they start to sell replacement caps that are the same design as the G810/310.

I've had my G810 for about two weeks, and I can confirm it has that annoying "spring" or "echo" sound. Everything else about it is pretty much perfect. It feels great to type on, the keys themselves sound good, the software is great (although I prefer not to have software), and the LEDs look amazing. That spring sound is kind of a deal breaker for me, though.

I just ordered a Ducky Shine 5 with Browns to compare it with, but I'm guessing I'll be taking back the Logitech. The LED light bleed on the Ducky looks kind of bad, but the fact that there is no software to deal with is a plus. We'll see how it goes.

Those are actually normal keycaps to replace the faceted angled ones on the 910. Those cylindrical keycaps are actually the same ones that come one the 810.

Its' crazy no reviewer has picked up on it.
I google'd around and found an amazon review from a guy that bought it and he mentioned it.
I'll be mentioning it in my review though.

Yeah. The design of the keycaps is unwanted. It has a dumb raised cup like design for your finger tips for "action" keys like WASD.

That's why I'm asking if they'll ever have normal keycap design that the 810 sold separately soon.

I'm not saying you can't use these keycaps on the 810, because you can. I'm saying the design of the keycap is crap.

Probably the same reason people don't say anything about the metallic pinging noise with Cherry MX switches. Some people simply can't hear it. To get rid of the noise, they would probably have to fill up the entire keyboard with sound dampening material. I am surprised a mechanical keyboard manufacturer hasn't done this yet.

Those are normal keycaps. They are the same ones used on the G810. They are made to replace the angled faceted keys on the G910. The keycaps in the link do not have any cup like design for the wasd keys. Essentially they are G810 keycaps that you use to replace the faceted keys on the 910.

Here are some pictures to illustrate my point.

Logitech G910 faceted angled keycaps:


Logitech G810 keycaps:
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Now go look at the cylindrical keycaps logitech is selling (the one you linked):

http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/romer-g-keycap-kit


They are identical to the G810's keycaps.

Yup, I don't hear the spring or echo that the guy is talking about. I'm a heavy key presser so I bottom out a lot and I hear a light thud but not a spring or echo you guys are talking about.

No worries, I just wanted to make sure you understood that those were the keycaps that you wanted lol. I have been debating on picking up a set for my g910 for awhile but at $40 I don't know if it's worth it.
