It's a nice keyboard but not on par with my mechanical Corsair one. Also, …It's a nice keyboard but not on par with my mechanical Corsair one. Also, if you ever want to customise your keycaps like you can on cherry MX keys you've got next to zero chance as next to no one makes after market caps for these Romer-G keys. At the very most you can do customising wise is change all your keys to use the top of the range Orion Logitech keyboard caps as the top of the range Logitech keyboard has exactly the same Romer G switches, but I'll tell you now you won't want to use those Orion key caps as a set of replacement keys which are only slightly different will cost you over £30, which is over 50% of the original cost of the keyboard you've just ordered so what's the point?As nice looking as this keyboard is it doesn't feel as nice as MX keys and your LED choice / options is dimming and off. As someone that owns a Corsair with MX switches which can take hundreds of different options of custom and after market keys that can just allow you to make the keyboard more in line with your personal preference I'd say buy a mechanical with Cherry MX or something else more popular than Romer G switch keyboards.

My point is this is a supposed mechanical keyboard but it doesn't feel like it, so what's the point?

If the key switches felt like cherry MX then I'd totally see your point with regards to the price comparison pound for pound.

But your comparing something that doesn't feel like it's meant to with something else that does what it says on the tin.

Also, you don't have to get Corsair keyboards, their are many others out there which feel better.

I'm not telling you to put you off buying it, I'm giving you free advice as someone that actually owns this exact model keyboard uamong others already and doesn't think it's all that. It does look nice, but that's about it.


If you go to the pcworld or somewhere where they have Logitech, razor, Corsair and others side by side and then try them out you will see for yourself exactly what I'm saying.

If you want a proper mechanical keyboard why get something that half does the job.for half the money?

The fact that pretty much no one including the majority of the usual Chinese copy cats can't even be bothered to make custom keycaps for Romer G switches pretty much sums up how popular they are.

Nearly every single after market keycaps you see on Amazon, eBay, AliExpress, gearbest and other more keyboard specific stores mostly offer custom keycaps of all shapes and sizes for cherry MX switches and others but not Romer G, but hey don't take my word for it Google it yourself.

Or is it you just want a keyboard that just states mechanical keyboard on the box for the sake of saying you have one?

I certainly can, but the cost might make a few bargain hunters here wince somewhat. The build consists of the following:

Vortex Pok3r PCB (from doner board £130)
Vortex Pok3r plate (from doner board)
Cherry MX Blue switches (from doner board)
Falbatech Bamboo Case (£50)
DSA Coffee House keycaps from Signature Plastics (£130)

I have a handcrafted Maplewood spacebar that's just come through the post which cost £50 (not pictured).

And I have a custom USB cable coming £25 to finish the build.

Expensive hobby this...

No. Because I don't know you well enough to explain it using a point a of reference that I know that you would understand. Suffice to say that; if you use a computer for more than an hour a day and you: can afford it: value your experience using your computer: play multiplayer competitive games, then I think you may benefit from using a mechanical keyboard.

How exactly does a Cherry MX keyswitch feel? The last time I checked there were at least 6 different types with various levels of activation force, travel and 'clickiness'. *edit* Wikipedia reckons there are 13 types now: en.wikipedia.org/wik…ds)

I changed from Cherry MX Black switches (linear activation and silent) on a SteelSeries 7G to the Romer-G keys on the G413 and I'm pretty happy with the G413. The fact that the G413 comes with spare set of frequently used keys, a keycap puller and an independent USB socket on the back are a real plus, especially at this price.

Which is why I stated go to pcworld or something so you he can get a better comparison and feel between different manufacturers keyboards, or Romer-G versus whatever else is on offer.

You haven't got to get all defensive or take my opinion or word for it, their are ton of posts on many different forums all of which are stating the same thing.

The keyboard has some pros like the visual design, the material ain't bad, but me personally I can't stand Romer G switches. Well, not the existing generation anyway and I hate the fact that you can't buy any custom keycaps for them.

Feel free to post a some if you can find them. I mean you might find an occasional key here and there but that's about as exciting as it gets.

As for having constant red LEDS, that too gets old very quick.
Have a look at some of these beauties and customisations versus the generic ones.

Mechanical keyboards last longer than your standard soft touch buttons. Made to last several years of daily use. You can customize them aswell to how much pressure you want for key to register. Some are noisy aswell. Youll need to get used to them.
I love this keyboard. Tried a few: corsair k70 low profile, roccat Vulcan and then settled on this because it had the nicest feel, better to type on and felt solid. My fingers also didn't miss the keys as it did with other keyboards, for whatever reason. I got the tactile version (similar to brown switches) prefer them the most. I also bought a separate leather wrist rest for it. Been looking out for the silver model going cheap for my iMac at home. This one is used daily in the office for Windows. Just my 2 cents etc - take it as you will.

you won't get a good wireless keyboard for gaming - needless extra price and lag when you'd be at a desk.

primarily the feedback you get when pressing a key, which depends on switch type on mechanical keyboards. for gaming you need anti-ghosting (being able to use multiple keys at once, think sprinting then jumping plus direction) and cheap membrane keyboards can't handle that as a key press smushes a rubber dome causing a printed circuit to close, but on mechanical each key is a separate switch. different switch types need deeper presses or make a click when they register but in general gaming keyboards will use red/browns so you don't need to worry about that.

basically the keys have both more resistance and better depression so you can feel when you press a mechanical key. there are semi-mechanical keyboards that either have switches under the most used keys (wasd etc.) or use membrane with sprung keys but both of those are cost-cutting measures - i'll not go back to membrane keyboards as the key register is far worse and they tend to break after a while (and be very susceptible to spills). a good mechanical will last you years longer than a cheap keyboard, though you'll pay a lot for extras like media buttons and RGB backlighting.

Largely agree here. I bought this a while back when it was on a similar offer. They keys are quite mushy so you dont get that usual mech keyboard clicky feedback. Its a decent keyboard if you are planning on using for typing in an office and you dont want to annoy everyone with the massive amounts of clicks, otherwise I would avoid.
Highly recommended this keyboard. Have had it a few months and is my first mech keyboard so can't really compare it other mech. But for the price you can't go wrong.
How does it compare to orion g910?
Ordered but i hope it feels good you know in both feel and sound, i like the quiet & feel of the dell kb212
I have this keyboard and it’s stunning. Really good for gamers and is easy to clean and just overall good quality. Heat added
I have this very happy with it .

The Romer-G's are decent, IMO. I've got a G810 (same keyboard with RGB) and I'm very happy with it. Tempted to pick one of these up for work instead of a £7 Logitech mush 'board!

Romer-G isn't trying to be the same as a generic keyboard with bought in Cherry MX or clone switches.

dont know to be honest, i have this Aukey keyboard, link below, which i think i got in the amazon sale for 20, and i cant fault it

from what i can tell the logitech keyboard has mushy keys

amazon.co.uk/AUK…JEA
So I spent an hour in PC world trying keyboards out. The Logitech ones are great but I found that my touch-typing was much Moreover accurate with the Corsair keyboard cherry reds. They didn't have a cherry blue so couldn't try this.

For me the Logitech is an excellent keyboard and I probably would have been very happy with it if I hadn't tried the Corsair one.

a mechanical with reds/browns is ideal for gaming and has lovely feedback when typing (i write this on a CM storm which uses browns), you can tell when you've pressed a key but they aren't too loud (though far louder than membrane/sprung). other switches like blues are more for typing, they make an audible click when they reach their register depth.

i don't think i could go back to a membrane keyboard - i used to put stock in media buttons and shortcut/macro keys but a good keyboard should have dual function keys and macros in the software so bit of a non-issue, miss media keys less than i thought i would. USB passthrough is a feature which OP keyboard has, uses 2 plugs but handy feature - no idea how those romer keys compare to cherry though.
Just bought this but for £10 dearer. Fantastic keyboard!
