With Corsair locking in an exclusivity deal on the Cherry RGB key switches for their first year and in general with Cherry switches being on backorder sometimes over a year out it’s no surprise that a lot of the manufactures have been reaching out to other options. Razer uses an MX style knockoff with their specifications, SteelSeries introduced their QS1 switch with their new mechanical keyboard, and Logitech actually introduced their new Romer G switches all the way back in September of last year. Well the G910 that houses the Romer G switches has been extremely popular and only a few weeks ago did we finally get one in to test out. I loved the G710+ but with the G910 changing everything from the ground up I really have no idea what to expect. That said I’m excited to see how the new switches perform and find out if the new design is a good as the changes they have made in their mouse lineup have been.

I like my G910 for gaming. The key shape does work well for typical left hand only use of the keyboard...if you do not use macros.

I echo the sentiments with typing, however. I use my keyboard far more for gaming than typing, so the tendencies to hit the wrong or extra keys are not as much of an issue for me. It took me more than a few days to minimize those problems coming from the unique key cap design. I do like the quieter actuation of the Romer G switches coupled with the nearly non existent backlight bleed between keys.
