Buy it on Amazon – (affiliate link) – The Logitech G410 is a premium gaming keyboard that doesn’t feel as high end as its price suggests. See more gaming peripheral reviews here:

This is a mechanical gaming keyboard using Logitech’s own Romer-G mechanical key mechanism. As a typing surface I actually prefer it to my Corsair tenkeyless keyboard given the keys don’t feel as sensitive, but gamers may want something a little springier than this keyboard provides.
My big gripe is with its overall build quality. It’s made out of plastic and as a result does not feel like a premium product when handling it. This is good for portability given its light weight, but it also means that it’s far more likely to get damaged when being transported.
The connectors are my biggest area of concern. No braided cabling or specially molded USB connectors for durability like its competitors have. In fact the cabling and connectors feel cheap and brittle – inexcusable on a premium product.
Features are sparse. The primary attraction on this keyboard are the LED backlights on the keys. They are very bright and very easily customizable without a lot of complexity. Each key can have its own color assigned and there are a number of ways to configure the lighting that are a bit easier than what I’ve seen on some other gaming keyboards. Unfortunately it doesn’t appear to be possible to tune color in realtime, so the color needs to be adjusted on screen before being pushed out to a key. There are no macro functions built into this keyboard so the rest of the configuration is relatively limited.
Logitech also has a feature that pairs up with mobile phones to display game system data or allow for quick switching of gaming profiles. It apparently has some applets that bring some second screen controls to games but not many are supported.
I would like this keyboard better at a lower price. It just doesn’t feel like a premium product for what it costs. Stay tuned for a video review I’ll be attaching to this review in the next day or so.
