- Get the Brown if you like that light typewriting feedback
- Get the G810 Logitech Romer-G if you prefer more of a stiffer feedback (solid spacebar) and want RGB lighting
So the layout for the G610 is exactly the same as the G810, except it lacks the RGB color lighting (it's just plain white) and it uses a different switch for the keys.
This G610 is available in Brown and Red switches.
If you're unfamiliar with mechanical keyboards, there are different types of switches that they use that provide different feedback response/sound etc, and what the most popular types are referred to them as MX Red, Brown, Blue switches.
Logitech actually created their own type of switches called the Romer-G, where it provides that mechanical feedback but keeping the noise more at a minimum. Some people like it, some people don't. (For me, I like it on the G910) So Logitech seems to be giving us more options...
The G810 (with the RGB light) uses Logitech's Romer-G switches. Surprisingly, Logitech ended up releasing this G610 keeping the same exact clean minimalist layout as the G810, but now gave options to having MX Red and Brown switches on them.
If you really like that clicky noisey typewriter-like feedback feeling, then you'll want to go with the Blue switches (G710) - what I believe to be a true mechanical satisfying feeling, BUT it is NOISY.
The Brown switches will be less noisier. With the G810 (Logitech G-Romer switches), it is much quieter but there is a spring-like feeling to them. There is no cheap spring feeling with the Brown switches. I find the brown switches to have quicker response time and a more of a breeze to type and release.
The G810 has a solid spacebar that's consistent with the rest of the keys, whereas the spacebar on these G610 feels a lot lighter (perhaps cheaper) than the rest of the keys.
The Red switches are a significant different feeling experience where it's made for speed because it responds without having to press the switch all the way down for a "click" feeling; it has a mushy feeling, so if you're not a fan of that, it may not be for you. The way I would describe is it feels like a being on a trampoline for your fingers, as it feels like a rubber band mushy bouncing feeling.
If you really that tactile typewriting feeling, then go with the Brown. The Blue switches on G710 is the loudest, but very satisfying if you desire a typewriting feeling.
Everyone has different needs and preferences, so there is no "BEST keyboard". It all depends on what you're looking for; if lighting and aesthetics is your main priority, or if you don't care about noise and just want that satisfying clicky feeling, etc. If you want a mechanical keyboard but can't stand the noise, then you'll want to go for Logitech's G-nomer switches like on the G910 or G810. If you want a clean minimalist keyboard, then your choices are the G810 or G610.
' The main departure from the G710+ is that the G810 sports a minimalist design, making it look almost like an ordinary keyboard. This means you can use it at the office without people looking at you like you're weird. It looks more professional and adult. It's also quite a bit smaller owing to the absence of custom keys to the left, which I never used on the G710+ anyway. See my attached photo.
' The second biggest change are the keys themselves. By now, you've probably read about the Romer-G Mechanical key switches, which have 25% faster key actuation and are significantly quieter than competitors. I would say this is accurate. There is definitely a big difference. In practical terms, what you'll notice is that these keys have a shorter keystroke than most mechanical keyboards, they are MUCH quieter, and they just simply feel crisper and more response -- almost like there is less rattle in the keys (notwithstanding the extraordinarily hard use my old G710+ saw). It's icing on the cake that now my typing cannot be heard throughout the house! Daughter's room is next door to my office, so this means I don't have to keep my door closed at night.
' They layout and aesthetics are nice. The keyboard is hefty and a bit thicker than most (standing up higher from the desk), but overall this keyboard is very slim and streamlined compared to most clunker gaming keyboards.
' Note well: there is no USB port on the keyboard itself, as there was on the G710+. I think this is good. Basically, on the G710+, you had to use two cords (which takes up space), plug into two USBs on the computer (which takes up space), only to gain a single USB port. Much easier to keep the keyboard simple and just plug the USB drive into the computer when necessary.
Now for compatibility issues:
' As I said in my title, this keyboard *works* with the Mac but is not YET *compatible.* What does this mean? This means that if you plug this keyboard into your Mac, it will work exactly like it's supposed to. All the keys work. All the multimedia buttons work. You can toggle the backlighting on and off. You can play music from the keyboard. You can skip tracks. You can adjust volume. Every single key works across platforms because of the way they are programmed, and Macs are designed to work with this standard programming.
' So what do I mean it's not "compatible"? I mean that Logitech has not yet released software specifically for this Keyboard that makes it compatible with the Mac. In other words, YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE COLOR OF THE BACKLIGHTING, AND YOU CANNOT CUSTOMIZE KEYS FOR GAMING. Everything else works the same.
' Why do I think you should buy it for your Mac anyway? First, because it's a great keyboard and everything works as expected for normal use. Second, because I think Logitech will release Mac compatibility updates in due course. This happened with the G710+. I was one of the first people to get a G710+, again (like this time) as an advance user test and review. When I first received it, the G710+ was not Mac compatible -- there was no software for Mac, and I could not customize keys. But, within several months, Logitech released an update for Mac compatibility, I was able to customize keys, and basically I gained full compatibility with the keyboard as if I was using a PC. I suspect the exact same thing will happen with this keyboard and that Mac users will find before long that it's fully compatible.
In sum, this is a fantastic keyboard in every way, without a doubt the best I have ever used. I highly recommend it and hold out hope that a Mac update will be released before long. Happy typing!
UPDATE (4-21-2016): Today I received an automated update from Logitech that makes this keyboard FULLY COMPATIBLE with the Mac 10.11.4 OS. Well done, Logitech! I had already given 5 stars, but this solidifies it. Amazing keyboard, now fully compatible across multiple operating systems.
