Logitech G910 keyboard.

Recommended Posts

Really appreciate you telling us about it :)! One question I have is what keyboard did you upgrade from? Were you used to using a mechanical keyboard already and if so how does it compare to your previous experiences?

 

Also great review, I think you should post your own thread in the Review section so more people can see it!

 

I'm coming from a Logitech K800 but I've tried the k70 red, k65 red, Razer chroma those green ones? I really think I like this one the best as it's pretty quite compared to all those others. If you like clicking switches forget this one.

 

I will add

 

It's  looking like Logitech is being quite on the custom profile thing missing, it kind of reminds me of waiting for Corsair to answer back about their 512 colors only "problem".

 

I've also realized you can't save a freestyle created lighting setup, so basically you have one set if you want another you have to make it, if you want your old one back you have to remake it. WTF?

 

Not impressed with the software at this point but at least it doesn't crash. Will wait a week or two and hopefully hear back from Logitech before making final decision on this one. But if they give those two features, saves and saving to a profile, I'll be happy I think with it.

 

Going to go try it out on some Titan Fall now :-)

 

Thanks for the compliment! but my writing is too bad to put anywhere where more than 5 people will read it. :-)

YOU CAN NOT MAKE A per key lit layout and connect it to a game profile! BAD BAD BAD Logitech! 

 

 

:'(  This is honestly the main thing I want from an rgb keyboard.  The only thing interesting now is the switches.

 Not that logitech will ever make a nice looking keyboard with them.  The visual style they are going for these days look like no-name china. People say razer is gawdy ha..

Yeah I think everyone agrees its a must have feature.

 

Can't say it looks all that bad sitting here in front of me I'm more concerned with how well it preforms and the software that makes it work being having what should be a basic feature for any RGB keyboard..

Here is a little follow up on the software:

 

It looks like we need a customizable "Command mode"

 

If you have a game profile it is supposed to switch to command mode (it doesn't work though) and display the active /inactive lighting. Sadly someone somewhere has already decided what keys should be active and limited the color. So command mode seem to me where we need to be able to select which keys should be active and what they should be colored.

 

As it is now if you make a new profile you have zero control of the keys that are active and if its a game that logitech hasn't added to their list of known games it selects like 6 random keys to be active and you have no way to change even that much less the colors. :-(

 

Correction: I have found out how to edit what keys are and are not active but its slow and painful. You basically have to add or remove "Commands" from the "Command list". You can only do it one key at a time and you still only have two colors.

 

 

Another product with unfinished software.

When will these companies realize that the software that is needed to enjoy a product is just as important as the hardware?

Still no reply from Logitech, not in the forum nor on the Supportticket.

 

I think it`s safe to say there is no Logitechsupport at all - their forum is just a playground for customers, not to get support from Logitech.

The same for their supportsystem - opening tickets is a waste of time.

 

This is how Logitech honours their customers.

I wouldn't buy one before there are more reviews out there on the switches, keycaps, drivers, etc. It's too expensive for my taste and also not Cherry MX.... so I'd just wait.

What's so special about a switch that has a 20 million less click life?

When you buy a 200$ keyboard and it stops working within a month or on the week after warranty expires you'll understand what's so special.

 

Cheers.

Thanks for saying nothing.

Do you have some stats that say MX are sooo much better they never fail? Or some stats that say the Razer switches have a higher failure rate than MX? Do you have anything to back up that claim other than maybe I'll have a kb that fails out of warranty someday and I guess you think it won't be a Cherry switch?

 

Facts man facts .....do you have any?

You're very welcome for saying nothing! That's what I do all day long. Fuck me right?

 

I never mentioned or compared any switches to others, only gave my opinion on Cherry MX's.

 

Razer switches? Do they make switches? Wasn't this post about a new Logitech keyboard?

 

Are you a fanboy of any brand? I'm not. When you spend enough time reading reviews you get to some conclusions, therefore, they aren't facts, just opinions and things that happened to people that wanted to share. And I do that when I'm buying anything, from keyboards to cars.

 

If you want facts, I believe you came to the wrong place.

 

Anyway, I'm not into internet arguments, I'm more into live action.

 

Cheers.

"I never mentioned or compared any switches to others, only gave my opinion on Cherry MX's."

 

which is why I asked you. If you're going to claim Cherry is better then its implied you think the others are not as good.  does it not?

 

"Razer switches? Do they make switches? Wasn't this post about a new Logitech keyboard?"

 

My post was about your claim that "it's not MX" so you don't like the g910. Again impling Cherry MX is better. So I ask you again why is Cherry better? And yes Razer has contracted a company to make THEIR switches.

 

"Are you a fanboy of any brand? I'm not."

 

Doesn't sound like it. It sounds like you are indeed a Cherry MX fan since you dismiss all the others and accept Cherry as the best based on......on ......oh yeah other fan boys saying their the best. .

 

" When you spend enough time reading reviews you get to some conclusions, therefore, they aren't facts, just opinions and things that happened to people that wanted to share. And I do that when

WOW ME TOO! and other than the occasional fanboy claim that Cherry MX is the best I have not seen one shred of evidense to back that up. Matter of fact I see lots of switches that have BETTER ratings so I'm asking people that claim MX are the best why. So far no one has given any answer with any facts, including you, you all just seem to be repeating what you've heard ....you know like a fan boyz.

 

"If you want facts, I believe you came to the wrong place."

 

Why, are you the only one here?.

 

"Anyway, I'm not into internet arguments, I'm more into live action."

 

Neat-o you sound like a super hero..

 

Cheers
