Overall and Final Verdict
Without a doubt the G910 Orion Spark is a drastic change from the what they did the last few years. With the G510s and G19s they just rebranded and continued to sell basically the same product. The G910 isn’t just an RGB version of the G710+, they brought it in line with the new styling that we have seen on the G602 and G502 mice, introduced new key switches, and gave everyone the RGB backlighting they want. With so many changes it’s no wonder that I did have a lot of feedback both good and bad. The 910 was polarizing for me. While using it I fell in love with its kick ass backlighting and learned to hate the overly shaped and wide keycaps. The software was easy to use and full of features just like it always is. I also loved the use of real media keys rather than just leaning on a function button. The new Romer-G key switches weren’t perfect, they did feel a little mushy, but they performed well and the tactile feedback was good.
Then on the other end of the spectrum the wrist rest was frustrating, the lopsided design was only useful for one hand and it couldn’t be removed. The new G keys up above the F Keys were a cool idea but even with my large hands I couldn’t reach them, I hope they consider putting them below the F Row in the future rather than dropping that row all together. I also would love to see them use a little less of the unneeded weird designs like the design etched into the WASD and direction pad. Gamers like a little flash but I think just as many people want a clean keyboard with the gaming features.
So is the G910 Orion Spark the keyboard to pick up? Well for me personally the aggressive styling is a little too much. It’s a shame really because I love most of the actual features. I would love to see Logitech bring out a similar model packed full of the same features but with styling closer to their new MX Master mouse. That said I really don’t think any of the completion has perfected their RGB keyboards as well so the G910 is still a great option for anyone looking for a full RGB keyboard.
