Logitech G's Mad New Gaming Keyboard Pairs With Your Smartphone

By Gerald Lynch on at

While Counter Strike purists will tell you there's no gaming advantage that a fancy keyboard can give you that a regular one and a few hundred hours worth of practice can't, there's never any harm on trying to give yourself a little competitive edge. Logitech G's G910 Orion Spark RGB Mechanical Keyboard, with its app powered customisation, offers just that -- and a bedroom light show to boot.

With a pop out tray to support an iOS or Android device, the keyboard pairs up with the Arx Control app, letting you control your computer's media, as well displaying game-specific stats and features set by developers.

Logitech G's G910 Orion Spark RGB Mechanical Keyboard uses proprietary Romer-G mechanical switches, which will offer quick-fingered gamers 25 per cent faster actuation compared to rival gaming keyboards. Each key has individual, customisable lighting options too, letting you assign any of 16.8 million colours to each key, helping you to quickly remember complex controls and shortcuts.

The keys, said to be durable up to 70 million keystrokes, are rounded off with nine programmable G-keys, letting you build macro commands for regularly-used tasks. The G910 Orion Spark supports up to three different profiles for three main games -- something that, given the apparent ease of the app customisation, may seem a bit stingy.

Landing in time for the rush of Christmas-release games, you'll be able to pick up the Logitech G910 Orion Spark from November, priced £159.
