First of all I would like to thank Logitech for sending me the Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum mechanical keyboard for review. I was very much intrigued about the new Logitech keyboards which were released, mainly due to their own Romer-G switch, which just like other manufacturers such as Razer and SteelSeries have moved away from the trusted Cherry MX switches, which I use on a daily basis on my Logitech G710+ (home) and Cooler Master Storm Quick Fire XT (work). Both of my daily keyboards use the Cherry MX Brown switches and have been also custom painted in a Lamborghini colour!
Now one thing I don’t get is why the G810 is more expensive than its older and feature-rich brother the Logitech G910. The G910 can be found for £120, now I can understand resellers are going to have different prices than the MSRP, but even then the price difference on Logitech’s website is £20. If I’m going to be spending £140 on a keyboard, I don’t think I would mind spending an extra £20 to get a keyboard that has a wrist rest, many more macro keys and even a stand for your phone to sit on!
After asking Logitech’s PR, I was told that they have “different designs” and it “comes down to personal preference” – Now I haven’t tried the G910, but I can sure tell from pictures alone that it would be a more ergonomic keyboard to use and the fact it has added functionalities and is currently cheaper than the G810 – this just doesn’t make any sense in my head! Anyway, with that said, I’ll still be reviewing the keyboard as a standalone review.
Pros: Runs on Windows 10, portability, price, USB port and Windows compatibility
Cons: Camera quality, keyboard build quality, non-UK layout keyboard

First of all I would like to thank iRULU for reaching out and sending me the Walknbook 2 10.1in Tablet PC for review. It can be found for £140 on AmazonUK and $155 on AmazonUSA. Furthermore, iRULU were kind enough to send me a protective case for the tablet PC, which can be bought separately for £7 on AmazonUK (I’ll briefly mention the case within my packaging and accessories section).
Pros: Accurate sensor, weight adjustment, ergonomics, customisable buttons, scroll wheel
Cons: No colour customisation, software limitations

After having reviewed the Logitech G303 mouse, which shares the same Pixart PMW 3366DM sensor as the G502, I thought to buy myself the more ergonomic G502 – I bought it for £35 (as it was on a deal on AmazonUK) – as prices fluctuate from £70 to £35, I thought to review it at the £55 price tag, which is a mid-point between the two.
The mouse can be found on AmazonUK for around £55 & AmazonUSA for around $55 (note the prices do heavily fluctuate) – as I am a UK based reviewer I will be reviewing it at the £55 price tag.
As a note: I didn’t receive this for review nor receive any promotional discount – I am reviewing it as a purchase as I thought it would be useful to readers to know the differences between the two mice. On top of that I bought the mouse as the ergonomics of the G502 looked better for my needs and hand size (17-19cm from middle finger to palm).
