Logitech G410 Keyboard Review
Avoiding the traditional “black box” keyboard design without ten-key, Atlas Spectrum looks more striking than most similar devices. This device offers an asymmetrical design with an elongated armrest on the left side, and a hollow plastic sheet for gripping the keyboard on the lower left. We have two thoughts about this look. On the one hand, it’s a neat and attractive design that helps distinguish this device from every other keyless gaming keyboard on the market. On the other hand, it might make this keyboard a bit difficult to store in a traveling bag.
One significant improvement on the Orion Spark is that the Atlas Spectrum has a smartphone holder, and if you choose not to use the holder, it folds to the keyboard altogether. This keyboard is compatible with the Arx Control Logitech companion application, which allows you to see system performance on the screen of your smartphone.
Like its larger cousin, Orion Spark, Atlas Spectrum utilizes the exclusive Romer-G Logitech mechanical switch. They are comparable to Cherry MX Brown switches: quite resistant, but with a soft and calm touch. The Romer-G switch moves at a distance of 1.5 millimeters, and the force is 45 grams, while the Cherry Browns move at 2 mm and the power of 45 g.
The Romer-G switch is slightly faster than the Cherry switch (and is also more durable, Logitech claims). However, Romer-Gs is not satisfactory enough for typing and not having the option of a hard button. It will disappoint switch fans like Cherry MX Blue or Razer Green.
Romer-Gs are competent switches, although they slow us down a little when typing. We were able to print 114 words per minute with seven errors on the Atlas Spectrum, but the standard Dell office keyboard gave Us 123 words per minute with seven errors.
Most of the premium price of Atlas Spectrum is probably due to the full RGB backlight. You can set solid colors, dazzling rainbow patterns, or a kind of where each button is a very different color.
Logitech has shown that unlike other RGB keyboard manufacturers, it illuminates the keys on its keyboard from the center rather than the bottom. That seems to make a big difference between European and Asian keyboards, although there is no significant difference in brightness or consistency between Spectrum Atlas and its competitors.
The backlight does not have a severe problem, but there are indeed some disturbances, all related to software. Logitech Gaming Software is usually a reliable and reliable companion for company peripherals, but this time it’s a bit disappointing.
One of the most significant things you can do with an RGB keyboard is to set different lighting profiles for various games and applications. Although you can do this with Logitech Gaming Software, its function is hard to find, buried behind two small arrows that look like the “back” button. There is no way to adjust the brightness of the universal keyboard, too, something offered by most competitors by default.
Atlas Spectrum is a sophisticated device that functions as it should. It’s minimal and lightweight for those who want to travel with it, and the granular Game Mode features will help to avoid mistakes.
The Bad > Unwieldy software, Key switches feel so-so, Expensive.
The Good > Striking physical design, Beautiful, colorful backlighting, Small, light and portable.
Conclusion > Recommended for gamers who value portability and beautiful color choices.
