Logitech K840 is a bare-bones mechanical keyboard from Logitech designed to bring a mechanical keyboard
typing experience without all the frizzle and frazzle of RGB, Presented in May 2017,
is currently only available in North America and Asia, and gaming style mechanical keyboards is it worth the money well,
and there are a lot of people hate RGB lighting, they hate the backlighting in the worldو
they hate these gaming style keyboards, so this keyboard is perfect to them.

So the Logitech k-8 40 is a 140 mechanical keyboard with Romer G switches,
romaji switches are not your typical mechanical keyboard switch,
being that they use a spring design in comparison to the normal mechanical switch,
now Romer G’s are pretty popular on Logitech keyboard, because it’s the main key switch that they use in a bunch of their keyboard,
Especially their gaming lineup ,but this keyboard offering, you’re getting something that’s a less gaming centric
and more focused on something that can get work done and look clean and stylish while doing it.
Logitech K840 Design
The build quality is very rigid with aluminium backplate in plastic unibody,
it does do a great job at presenting itself as something that is meant to get work done,
while also not being overly dull and boring.
The colour scheme is very neutral with that silver backing with the dark grey key,
caps in the dark grey unibody, but it does present itself as something that is very appealing to people,
who want something very minimal.
onto the back of the keyboard where we see some of the greatest features of this.
keyboard the non-slip pads are awesome,we have five of them ,and all separate quadrants of the keyboard,
and it’s doing a great job at keeping my keyboard from moving around on the desk,
it also comes with two very solid flip-out feet, that come out at a side angle,
which I’m not a big fan of normally,i like them to come out in another direction.
Logitech K840 Key Caps
The key caps on this keyboard are where my disappointment starts.
the key caps themselves are just your typical ABS plastic, which is Okay i can’t complain about that,
but they are not double shot, and i understand not going for a double shot keycap,
because that doesn’t have any backlighting at all on it, but the issue with that is the key caps are going to start to wear down over time,
and this is meant to be a keyboard for productivity or like an office mechanical keyboard,
and the key caps are gonna start wearing way before the switches are even near their end-of-life and it’s gonna cause issue,
that this keyboard to start looking very dingy and worn out .
Over time a future revision should be etched in key caps, because that will make this keyboard actually last a lot longer than what you’re offering.
there are romaji switches, it’s like a red brown hybrid, it’s not super loud or tactile at all except with this keyboard or some reason.
the spacebar is very loud and tactile compared to the switches,
but they do have a brown or red feel to them, they’re not as linear as reds,
and they feel much more closer to browns with a tactile bump with a decent sound signature to them,
by far this is way better than any membrane mechanical keyboard ot there
the cable is well, less-than-stellar, it’s basically your normal USB cable with no braiding,
and is non-detachable, but this cable should braided just for the durability factor alone another durability cost measure
that they took with this mechanical keyboard,but that pretty much runs down, the main overall features of this keyboard
it does include your basic function and media keys, but it’s not meant to do anything razzly-dazzly for gaming
or any other stuff like it’s meant to be typed on and worked on.
The Logitech K840 gaming keyboard costs $44.99, and this is a very favorable price
