Reflecting some other high-end mechanical keyboards, the Logitech G810 has dedicated media controls that allow for easy control of songs, movies, etc. without having to stretch to hit both a function key and an F-key. The board isn’t as clean with these media keys, but that’s a tradeoff made for added ease-of-use.
Through the use of Logitech Gaming Software (LGS), the F keys can be set as macros. Like nearly any other gaming marked keyboard, the G810 has “game-mode” which disables the Windows key, but unlike many other keyboards, keys can be added or removed from “game-mode” through LGS. If you’d like to disable caps-lock, for instance, that could be added to the roster of game mode keys.The Logitech G810 also has 26-key rollover, which is more than most people have fingers and toes, so key-rollover won’t be a problem for gaming and typing.
One of the G810’s unique features compared to the competition is its two levels of tilt via the inclusion of short feet, which elevate the keyboard to a 4-degree tilt, and then longer feet (that the smaller feet socket into) that raise the keyboard to an 8-degree tilt.
Interestingly, a free copy of Tom Clancy’s: The Division is currently included with the purchase of the Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum and other select Logitech keyboards. This helps make it more attractive at the price of $160 (expected availability beginning in February 2016, so... now), and if Logitech treats The G810’s MSRP like the G410 and G910, it will end up selling a fair bit below its MSRP.
