Just because you're not a pro gamer, doesn't mean you shouldn't equip yourself with pro-level gear. And Logitech's G810 Orion Spectrum is just the sort of kit you need: packed with pro features and performance, but suitable for everyday use and priced at a point that everyone can afford.

Rather than go on and on with an A-Z of everything it has to offer, we've kept things simple: here instead is a keyboard-themed QWERTYUIOP of the G810's killer features.

Q is for Quality

The Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum is designed to be a great-looking piece of hardware that delivers stunning performance, and you can see the quality in all the little details: things like its matte surface texture to mask unsightly fingerprints, its braided cable that won't get tangled up around the back of your PC, and its asymmetric keycap design for more accurate keystrokes. One look tells you that this keyboard means business.

W is for Wrists

When you’re gaming for hours, comfort is vital. You particularly don't want your wrists wrecked by carpal tunnel syndrome thanks to spending too much time gaming on a badly-positioned keyboard. Thankfully the G810 can help prevent that. It features a three-step angle adjustment that you can set to 0, 4 or 8 degrees so that it's at exactly the right angle for you, and its rubber feet mean that it won't slide around in the middle of a game.

E is for Easy-access media control

If you prefer to listen to your own tunes while playing, the G810 makes it simple to manage your music without switching out of your game. Its dedicated media controls can be used to play, pause and mute music at the touch of a button, as well as for skipping backwards and forwards on your playlist. And if a noisy track comes on and starts drowning everything else out, you can use the roller to dial it down a bit.

R is for Rollover

No matter how many keys you mash simultaneously, the Logitech G810 can keep track of them all. It boasts an enormous 26-key rollover, which means you can press pretty much any number of keys (plus Control, Alt and Shift) in any order and get exactly what you were after. It’s perfect for unleashing complex combos, every single time.

is for Totally reliable

When you're serious about your gaming you absolutely don't want any of your equipment letting you down mid-game, and you can be sure that the G810 won't fail on you when it matters. Its Romer-G mechanical switches are tested for 70 million keystrokes, making them up to 40 percent more durable than other mechanical switches, and their dual-contact redundancy means that keys activate at the same point, every time.

Y is for Yellow

And red, and blue, and in fact all the colors! Because the most eye-catching thing about the Logitech G810 is its dazzling – and completely customizable – RGB backlighting. Using Logitech Gaming Software you can light up every single key in whatever color you want, and let loose with amazing lighting effects that you can synchronize with other Logitech G devices. And with the LED Illumination SDK you can even program your own advanced lighting effects.

U is for Ultra-responsive

What really matters with a gaming keyboard, of course, is how responsive it is to your key presses, and the G810 trashes the competition in this respect. Its Romer-G mechanical switches actuate up to 25 percent faster than standard mechanical switches, and their short travel and low-force actuation result in near-instant responsiveness, gaining you precious in-game milliseconds that can make all the difference in high-speed MOBAs and more.

I is for In-Game effects

The G810's RGB backlighting is for more than customizing your setup and pimping your PC. It can also enhance your gaming fun. With Logitech gaming software you can highlight all the keys you'll need for whatever you're playing, meaning that you'll never be caught out hunting for the crouch key, and even better, more and more games are using the G810's backlighting to react to in-game events, resulting in even more immersive experiences.

O is for Over 300 profiles

With so many lighting and customization options available, you really don't want to have to go to the trouble of setting everything up yourself. Thankfully the G810 has you covered. Logitech Gaming Software comes packed with profiles for over 300 top games, so no matter what you're playing you can be confident that it's going to play nicely, straight out of the box.

P is for Price

Mechanical keyboards aren't exactly renowned for being cheap, and when you throw in the Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum's responsiveness, RGB lighting and customization options, you'd expect to be paying out some serious money for the privilege. But the G810 delivers pro gaming quality at a mainstream price. You can order it right now from $103.99 - $159.99 depending on the model you choose, with shipping included. So why wait?
