Great find!  But I can't seem to find any in stock locally--mainly because it looks like their stock checker isn't working right. :(

Just curious—do these have the 1st-gen Romer switches, before they improved them? Could that be why they're so cheap?

I didn't know there were different versions of them.  I remember trying them at one point and my thoughts were that they didn't feel much better than a rubberdome.  Maybe I should try them again?

I didn't know they made revisions to the switch!
I had some time to play with the G810 with Romer-G's and I can say they aren't terrible but not overly amazing either, not a fan of the short actuation but the switch was marketed to Gamers so I can respect that.

Was this recently?  I wonder if you tried the new version or the older one?

It was just last week I believe, is there a way to tell between the new and old?  :cool:

I dunno--your assessment was exactly what I thought of the switch I tried a year or two ago.  :))

That's what I've gathered here and there—for example in this thread:

New Romer G aren't bad. They seem to be less mushy now and a bit smoother.

So I recently tried a G910 in store and it felt great!  Nothing like the old mushy Romer-G I remembered.

I think they updated the switches and HUGE improvements on stabilizers (back then was mushier than Cherry stabilizer, now it feels like Costar)...
