    "The best thing is that it is back lit. I hate trying to type in the dark. I like the green color it is attractive. Pretty reasonable price for such a nice keyboard."

    "The G910 isn't a bad keyboard for its price. I think I could have found a better deal on ebay, but I ordered mine direct from Logitech's online store. I was surprised how smooth the keys were, and how light the board actually was. If you order from Logitech's store like I did, they throw in an extra warranty that I think you should get, even for an investment as small as this one."

    "The product seems to be well-reviewed at four out of five stars. However, it doesn't appear to be one of the more affordable options with other listed choices also being well-reviewed and at a lower price. A quick search yields many options that would be strong contenders at a lower price point."

    "So gamers do we really need an overpriced $200 keyboard to dominate our opponents? Sub $50 gaming keyboards do exist. The Apex M800 is not that affordable gaming keyboard that you are looking for. This keyboard is way overpriced and lacks features most gaming keyboards for well under $100 has. If you are looking for a keyboard stay away far from this overpriced lack luster featuring keyboard."

    "Awesome keyboard for those of us who don't wanna dish out > $100. Really good feel to it and great tactile feedback. I've been using it for nearly a year now and it functions just like it did the day I bought it. Could do without the flashy lights and all but all in all, I like it a lot."

    "I play a lot of games, so I want a keyboard that can work for me in the way I need it to. That being said, games are expensive, as are game systems, so I also want a keyboard that won't break the bank. That's the main problem with this keyboard. I feel like something like this should be a lot cheaper. "
