Typically when people think about Logitech and their keyboards, most users will think of their keyboard and mouse combo-kits that you can buy off the shelf just about anywhere. If I was to reflect on just the keyboards I have seen in the past, while some had LCD screens, some allowed for programmable keys, and others offered back lighting, no matter what you were going to buy from them, all were based on rubber membrane switches. If you read my keyboard articles, you already know what I think about using those, once I was turned on to mechanical keyboards for both my job as a writer as well as gaming on them. There is just no way rubber dome switches can even contend with mechanical keys in my opinion.
Since there has been a huge flood of mechanical keyboards into the market over the last couple of years, Logitech realized they were missing out. So much so that even when Corsair had their mechanical keyboards designed, rumor has it they employed ex-Logitech employees to design the K Series keyboards for them. Logitech didn't look at this in the wrong way though; they jumped right back on the horse and went to work on a design of their own to get their chunk of the mechanical keyboard market. Not like this is a huge step for them, they have a very solid foundation in what they already offered, they just needed to make the leap into buying more expensive switches, and package the idea in something a little different than the rest of the offerings, giving this new mechanical keyboard a look that is unmistakable to those in the know.
It may have taken a while to get Logitech to send over this new keyboard, but I am happy to finally get my hands on what they have to offer in mechanical keyboards. That leaves us with why we are here today, and that is to get up close and personal with the G710+ mechanical gaming keyboard from Logitech. Compared to most mechanical offerings where the board layout is more on the basic side, as these keyboards were intended for writing first. That isn't to say that there aren't gaming style mechanicals out in the wild, but there are only a select few that I think are truly gaming ready without the intention of a utility driven device first.
Logitech has really put forth some effort in this design while carrying over things that have made other offerings a success. That in mind, I say we get right into what Logitech has brought to the table, as I give my opinion on how it all works.
