Logitech's latest mechanical keyboard is sleeker, lighter, still fantastic

New, 40 comments

Logitech today unveiled a new ultra-light, tenkeyless mechanical keyboard.

The G410 Atlas Spectrum TKL still uses the company's Romer-G mechanical switches and includes an integrated smartphone dock and intelligent RGB illumination, but unlike the G910 Orion Spark, this keyboard looks like a sleeker, tenkeyless board.

"We worked closely with gamers of all ages and our eSports teams to create this ultra-light keyboard that is durable and comfortable," said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech. "The result is something that we think meets the needs of eSports athletes, but is also great for younger gamers looking to buy their first gaming keyboard."

The $129.99 board is also missing the macro keys found on the Orion Spark.

The Orion Spark was one of our favorite boards back when we went hands on with it earlier this year, but the size of the board was one of the things we weren't fans of.

The Atlas Spectrum goes on sale in the U.S. and Europe in October.
