For those who are new to the mechanical keyboards, hope this helps.

Corsair K65 uses famous Cherry MX Red switches, which are designed to provide linear pressure all the way from the start of the key press and to the bottom. There is no clicky feeling nor sounds, but only the sounds from the key hitting the bottom of the strokes. Also, if you are looking for Cherry MX Red switches, Corsair is the one you are looking for. Just so you know, K65 is tenkeyless, not having the numpads as well as does not have LED function.

On the other side, Logitech G410 provides completely different feeling of key strokes from any of the Cherry MX switches. It is kinda clicky but more mushy than the Brown switches, yet not so linear as Red switches. Romer-G has very low profile, needing less distance to travel down for key strokes compared to Cherry switches. One great advantage of Romer-G switches is that the RGB LED function is wonderful compared to the Cherry switches. The colors are more vivid and bright, and centered on each keys. However, from my experience, G410 is a bad idea to have an experience of Romer-G switches.
1. Somehow G410 has more mushy key stroke feeling compared to G810. If you truly want to have an experience with Romer-G switches, go for G810 or G Pro keyboard. They should be using the same switches, but I felt really different.
2. Every single keys from G410 makes hollow sounds when stroked down to the bottom. Probably because it is made out of cheap plastic, not having any supporting metal plates. If you are sensitive to these sounds, DON'T GET G410. This is the reason why sold it.

What Cherry switch is equivalent to those on the Logitech G410? It lists Romer-G and the pictures show "blue"? Does that mean they are "clicky"?

There isn't an apples to apples comparison. Google tells me they're like strangely rubbery Browns. But that's vague.

IMO, they are better Browns, than the original MX Browns themselves (while not sharing any structural similarities) - because they include the factory built-in bottom padding support, vs add-on o-rings gimmickry in MX Browns and clones.

I have the G910 and had the razer chroma for a bit, as well as an azio with blue keys, and prefer the g910. Less noise, almost sounds silent if ur moving from a blue switch keyboard, and better feedback. Perfect for gaming and typing imo. Hope it helps.

This is a gaming keyboard, so the idea is that your left hand will be on the keyboard (either QWERTY or WASD keys) while your right hand is on a mouse. Could be an issue if you're typing a lot on it, otherwise, I think it's a reasonable design choice.

Definitely will think about grabbing the Logitech. It looks great, and the compact design and unique look appeals to me.

Back at the time I was shopping for a mech keyboard, preferably looking for a TKL for small footprint, and backlit b/c I work a lot at nights in a relatively dark room. I did not have a first-hand experience with mechs, so I was not sure what keys are best for me.

The Corsair K65 was (still is?) on display at Best Buy, and typing on it it was clear that I love the touch of the MX Red. The form factor also was what I was looking for. But it was out of budget (and no backlit).

So, I bought the Logitech G410, G610 Red and G710+ Brown, all on sale, to experience before deciding which one to keep.

It took 0.1 seconds after unboxing the G410 to realize that (1) for a TKL, it is huge, especially that funky wristrest. The idea of TKL is to save space. This one is countering this idea, and (2) The Romer-G keys are terrible, giving a typing experience not superior to the better rubber-dome keyboards you can find around.

The G710+ Brown was nice to type, but again was too big for me liking.

The G610 is white-backlit and has a pretty minimal footprint for a non-TKL keyboard. It also has convenient multimedia control keys. But the really important thing are the MX Red keys, which are fantastic. So, although it is not TKL, I decided to keep this one and am using it since. I love it.

Recently I bought an AUKEY TKL ($20 on sale) for the office. It is exactly the minimal design I was looking for. The keys are clones of MX Blue and I got it to try and experience the difference from the Reds. Assuming they are good clones, then I certainly prefer the Reds. There is a noticeable difference in the quality of the keycaps from the Logitech. You get what you pay for. But, for $20 I do not complain and enjoy it better than the multitude of dome keyboards we have at the office.

i have the g910 and they are romer g keys. its really nice and close to the logitech g710+ cherry browns. imo, i like the feeling of the g710+ cherry browns. it has slightly more tactile feeling. the g romer is like a between the cherry red-brown. romer-g are more quiet than the cherry browns. overall i like the logitech mech keys over corsairs.
