Logitech has announced a pair of new mechanical keyboards today, with the Orion 610 Brown and Red. Those familiar with mechanical keyboards will probably guess from their names that these are using Cherry MXswitches, with the MX Brown and MX Red switches in the respective models.
The keyboards also offer customizable LED backlighting, and while they are not RGB (these keyboards are white LED backlit), each individually-backlit key can be customized with different brightness levels. There are also options to change the lighting patterns and synchronize with other Logitech G products using the Logitech Gaming Software.
Here are the specs from Logitech G:
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 153 mm x 443.5 mm x 34.3 mm
- Weight: 1.2 Kg (without cable)
- Cable length: 6 feet
- Cherry MX Key Switches:
- Actuation distance: 2mm
- Actuation force: 45g
- Total travel distance: 4mm
- Optional LGS download works with Windows 7 and higher
- Powered USB port

- 2-year limited hardware warranty
Macro functionality is available via customization of the F1 – F12 keys, and the keyboards feature dedicated media controls as you would expect. So how much will these cost? Retail for the Orion 610 Brown and Red will be $119.99.
