Logitech introduces its G610 Orion, a new line of mechanical gaming keyboards. As the names suggest, the G610 Orion Brown and the G610 Orion Red feature Cherry MX Brown and Cherry MX Red switches, respectively. The keyboards feature customizable LED backlighting, which is white only in contrast with all the RGB keyboards we've seen lately, and it also offers easy-access media controls. You can expect the G610 Orion lineup in retail stores later this month (or April for Europe) for $119 (139EUR).
Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced the expansion of its mechanical gaming keyboard lineup with the Logitech® G610 Orion Brown and the Logitech® G610 Orion Red. Both products feature Cherry MX mechanical switches, as well as customizable bright white LED key backlighting and dedicated media controls. These full-size mechanical gaming keyboards integrate industry-leading technology and quality of construction in a uniquely crafted design to deliver peak performance for a pure gaming experience.
“Keyboard enthusiasts want a variety of options,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech. “Our new G610 Orion keyboards deliver a clean, sophisticated design along with a choice of mechanical switches.”
Pure Performance-Driven Design
Every aspect of the Logitech G610 Orion Brown and the Logitech G610 Orion Red – from the simplest details, such as fingerprint-masking matte texture and a durable braided cable, to the most complex details, including advanced bright white LED key backlighting – is precisely engineered. The result is industry-leading technology and quality of construction in a uniquely crafted design.
Cherry MX Key Switches
The Logitech G610 Orion Brown and the Logitech G610 Orion Red feature Cherry MX mechanical switches, which are the industry standard in mechanical keyboards. Cherry MX switches are rated over 50 million keystrokes and actuate precisely for a reliable gaming experience. Low-noise Cherry MX Brown switches have a tactile bump for feedback while you type, while low-noise Cherry MX Red switches have a linear keypress for rapid-fire actuation.
Customizable LED Backlighting
Use Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) to select and personalize brightness for each key to match your style, system or environment, or set lighting to sleep when you aren’t using the system. Light up keys to keep track of spells and other commands. Additionally, use LGS to synchronize lighting patterns and effects with other Logitech G gaming gear so your devices can display the same lighting pattern. Available patterns include breathing or light wave.
Easy-Access Media Controls
The Logitech G610 Orion Brown and the Logitech G610 Orion Red feature dedicated media controls that can be used to play, pause and mute music and videos instantly, so you can control your background track without switching out of your game. Use the roller to adjust the volume, or skip to the next song with the touch of a button.
