G810 is a standard shaped and standard built keyboard. Therefore its comfort levels are not going to be great. However, I found my time with it a helluva lot more enjoyable than I did the G910. The Romer-G mechanical switch truly shines here. I could swear it feels stiffer than on the G910, though that’s highly unlikely since except the different keycap there aren’t many other differences.
I don’t think I mentioned just how much I enjoy using the Romer-G with a classic keycap. The sharp narrow edges of the G910 felt genuinely unpleasant to type on. Back in its review – I said that a classic designed keycap would be far more welcome and now it is.
G810 only has a 26-key rollover. While it might not be as impressive as G910 package deal, it’s still good enough and shouldn’t hamper most end-users.
A peripheral cannot really improve your gaming. It either fights you or complements your play-style.
That said, I find the G810 Orion Spectrum a lot more enjoyable than the G910, with a nice tactile feel. They keys are evenly split, so you shouldn’t have any trouble switching from W to F in an instant. It might not have macro-keys – but you can assign commands, macros, and even scripts to the F-keys.
Orion Spectrum caters to day-to-day use. If Orion Spark was gamer-only, than G810 feels excellent when typing and would do just as well in day to day use. I actually think it’s more gamer friendly too, since you won’t cut yourself in the sharp key edges.
