With us gaming almost every free moment of our lives, we need a good keyboard which feels right when using it. It also helps if a keyboard has extra added features like G-Keys, and is affordable, as we all know how expensive they can get. The Logitech G610 is a budget keyboard, with some really good features. Sure it does not light up like a Madonna concert, but it does what it needs to do, when gaming and typing.

Like all gaming keyboards, the G610 has a backlit display, which however does not change colour. Instead it is a white colour, just enough for you to see what you are doing in the dark. The keyboard does not cut on any keys as it is a full-keyed keyboard with a few media buttons like a volume dial and play/next/pause buttons. It is also lightweight and fits in anywhere, be it on your work desk, or in front of your gaming PC.
The G610 comes with Cherry MX Keys which feel great when typing and gaming. No matter what we tested the keys on, it delivered great results which let us control what was going on in the game, not matter how intense everything got. Spacing and the ease of pressing the keys, really added to the comfort of the keyboard.
We did miss a few G-Keys, which you will not find on the G610, but thanks to the Logitech gaming software, you can set the function keys to do specific things in games. The software also lets you cancel certain Windows commands, so that you do not press buttons by mistake during gameplay. While playing in a low-light room, the backlit keys can be modified to only show those being used in that specific game you are playing. For example, during World of Warcraft, you can set the number keys to be on, and during Call of Duty, the WASD keys. This also helps keep you focused on the keys you need and not the ones in the way.
Although there is nothing really out of this world about the G610, we thought that its affordable and humble approach to being an all-in-one keyboard, was good enough. We typed out articles and played tons of games. It might not have the top-end features found in more expensive models, but it had what we needed.
