    Re: Logitech G Pro tenkeyless mechanical gaming keyboard

    I don't get it. I just recently bought the Orion G610, quite pleased with it. This is the same board, minus some keys and chassis length, yet it costs £50 more at RRP? Only other difference is I picked up a white backlight only model and this one is RGB.

    Why is this MORE expensive?

    Having said that I got MX browns, as opposed to Romer-G, and I'm not supporting a team which historically picks up great players and loses games anyway. Guess there's less money to recompense.

    Looks nice but I'd prefer it to have cherry mx switches. Brown to be precise

    I've read that Cherry MX are the best but is there really that big a difference? Is it reliability or usability?

    Me too - loving the browns in my G610 though and was a good bargain at £70. This seems like a silly price for a tenkeyless model which is cheaper to make as it has less keys....

    People in the PC community have for some reason convinced themselves Cherry MX are the best but I have had keychatter (multiple keystroke) and/or dead LED issues with every single Cherry kb I've ever owned - even respected brands like Corsair, Ducky and Coolermaster. As you can imagine I'm always on the lookout for alternative switches. I found Razer switches to be much more reliable which is more than I can say for most Razer products.

    I like tenkeyless designs and have yet to try these Romer G switches but I am very tempted. One thing I wish is that they'd kept the volume rocker on this, that's one extra feature that can actually be useful.

    Re: Logitech G Pro tenkeyless mechanical gaming keyboard

    The terms "quiet" and "Romer-G" don't really belong in the same sentence ...or article even.

    I've had to return several Logitech G810 keyboards because of the annoying ringing/pinging sound coming from the keys, even if you just gently stroke across a row. 'twas a really shame as well, since I really love the keyboard otherwise.

    Pretty much, I doubt many people could tell the difference between switch manufacturers in use, provided you used the same 'colour' equivalents.

    In terms of reliability, there's not much you can do to a fairly simple mechanism like this to make it last longer. I've never known a switch to fail, regardless of manufacturer. And it seems like they are pretty trivial to replace if they ever did fail - so reliability/lifetime keypresses doesn't really factor in to it (for me).
