Logitech is a broad and diverse company that was founded back in 1981 in Switzerland with the plan to revolutionize people’s interaction with the digital world. They started with a simple innovation that most of us take for granted called the mouse, but at that time the mouse was a technological innovation that allowed users to easily interact with the new GUI interface of computers of the day. Since then Logitech has become a household name with products encompassing computer accessories, gaming, Internet communication, digital music and home entertainment remotes.
The product we will be reviewing here is part of their Gaming or G series; it is their amazing new G910 gaming keyboard with many new innovative features. The first big feature is that this keyboard is designed around Logitech’s new Romer-G Mechanical switches; the second major feature is the ARX control which allows users to use their Smartphone as a screen to display in game stats. Another major feature is the customizable RGB backlighting that is built into every switch/key.
Packaging and Contents
The packaging of the G910 is rather special and surprised even us. It is comprised of an outer sleeve that you will first see when you go to your local retailer. The front side talks about the New Romer-G Mechanical keys that are supposed to provide 25 percent faster actuation. The rear side features a partial X-ray view of the keyboard with a breakdown highlighting the key features for the G910 Orion Spark.
That other sides are finished in a teal color and have basic information like the contents of the box and the standard legal disclaimer.
Now the surprise is that when you pull the actual box from the sleeve, you will find a black heavy gauge cardboard box with a big turquoise Logitech G logo.
Inside of the box is the elegant G910 Orion Spark, two swappable palm rests and a user manual. An internet connection is required to download the Logitech gaming software.
