Logitech G610 Cherry MX RED Mechanical Keyboard - $56.99 & FS - Media Keys & Volume Scroll Wheel

$56.99

I've noticed for the past few days Walmart has the Logitech G610 with Cherry MX Red switches (sold & shipped through Geekdeal) for $56.99 online only.

Shipping is free for non-expedited options. I didn't pay sales tax in Texas, however I'm sure this varies dependent upon which state you're purchasing from. You can also purchase a 2 year protection plan for $5, although I'm inexperienced with Walmart's protection plans.

I love Cherry MX Red switches, for those whom aren't familiar with Cherry MX (or reds, at this rate), these switches do not provide a tactile response and they're somewhat quiet - if the clicking of other mechanical keyboards (typically Cherry MX Blue switches) get on your nerves, give these a try.

The media keys are super helpful, volume scroll wheel feels smooth.

For those that are curious about backlighting, and just to add some clarification on the G610 specifically since Walmart's page doesn't seem to do so - The G610 is white LED backlit, and you can control the light level per key with the Logitech Gaming Software. (The G810 is the same keyboard, but with RGB backlighting, although oddly, the G810 appears to use Romer-G switches instead of Cherry. The G810 goes for ~$90 at Best Buy [bestbuy.com] at the moment)

Is this quieter than other keyboards? Can someone upload a YouTube with key press test?

Reds are quieter than Blues, but I find Browns to be even more quiet. But i find romer-g switches to be the quietest that I have used.

Logitech uses Romer-G keys on most of their high end keyboards. They contracted with Omron to design a brand new mechanical key. One of the key benefits of Romer-G switches over Cherry MX for RGB is that they designed them to emit the light from the center of the key so it is piped directly to the keycap and you dont get light bleed through like you do with Cherry MX RGB keyboards.

Brown is quieter than red?

I have seen arguments both ways, but there are reviews that actually say red and browns have the same loudness at about 40 dB... just a quick search and I found this post https://linustechtips.com/main/to...nt-1662912

That is for raw keys on a tester. As pointed out, the material they keyboard is made of and other things will factor in to the loudness.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5KMTPS8jUSY - This link has a side by side comparison of Red, Brown and Romer-g using the same keyboard construction.

They're non-tactile non-clicky. Even though the board and key caps make a big difference, most gaming mechanical keyboards with Cherry Reds are the same - fairly quiet for a mechanical without o-rings.

Blue has a spring that emits a sound by design. It's the loudest. Red and brown only make a sound by bottoming the key out on the PCB. Red may appear louder because there is no tactile feedback on actuation, so the user may bottom out purposefully to know the key press registered. I almost always bottom out each time, so red and brown are the same for me. There are other colors, but I skipped for brevity for now.

I own two Cherry MX Brown and one Red keyboard.
