Quick Take

Great opportunity to jump into the world of mechanical keyboards, especially if you find it on sale.

The Logitech G710+ mechanical gaming keyboard features the same futuristic, industrial design typical of Logitech keyboard. Each key on the device has a full-on mechanical switch, which makes it much sturdier and allows it to last up to five times longer than a tradition membrane-based keyboard. Keys on a mechanical keyboard spring back quickly, proving a strong experience for gamers and fast typers

Logitech G710+NotebookReview called the design of the G710+ “downright chic,” noting each key is lit by a bright white LED light, which has four brightness levels. The keyboard also has six programmable macro keys, which can each be programmed with up to three different commands. The G710+ also features 26-key rollover and anti-ghosting technology on all 110 keys. NBR noted the keys have excellent response time, but the keyboard can be a bit noisy, although it’s not as noisy as many mechanical keyboards. The USB plug on the keyboard takes up two USB 2.0 ports in a notebook due to a USB pass-through included on the back of the keyboard, although users don’t have to utilize the pass-through.

In conclusion, NBR said “on the whole, this is a good keyboard,” but noted that for the price of $149 at the time of the review, users may want to wait until they can find the device on sale.
