Now the keyboard has been finally unboxed, we are left with the centrepiece; the Logitech G910 Orion Spark RGB Gaming Mechanical Keyboard. At first glance, the G910 comes with a wrist rest and is of course full size; no TKL model is in the pipeline either. The G910 features an all-black design with a contrast of what I like to call Logitech G blue; this is on the ARX dock which we will take a look at soon.
The Logitech G910 Orion Spark has many traits of previous Logitech G keyboards, what I mean is they have included 9 programmable buttons for those who are into macros, dedicated media controls and of course integrated RGB technology which allows users to fully customise their keyboard; for that added personal touch.
The G keys or more widely known as “macro” keys can be found down the left hand side and top left; these are fully customisable using the Logitech Gaming software which can be downloaded directly from the Logitech website. The WASD keys also have extra markings which should help identify them when gaming; although this shouldn’t be a problem of course!
Like the WASD keys, the arrow keys also have the same markings on the keys.
In the top right hand corner of the G910, you will find the media keys which allow you to play/pause, stop, skip or rewind songs; there is also a scroll wheel which controls the volume as well as a dedicated mute button.
Here we have the ARX dock release holder which essentially allows you to rest your iPhone or Android smart phone in place for use with the ARX software; a fairly intuitive piece of software which allows you to monitor certain information/stats in game. This doesn’t however provide any power whatsoever; just allows you to rest which is a little disappointing.
Next to the escape key Logitech have placed the G (gaming) logo in the top left corner; this also illuminates when RGB mode is activated.
