Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The specifications chart doesn't really tell much about the keyboard, but rather gives you an idea of what you need to have ready at home to be able to use this keyboard. At the top it starts with which operating systems can use the software and the keyboard. It also notes that there are two USB 2.0 connections that need to be made, one for the keyboard, and the other for the pass-through of an extra USB 2.0 port on the back of the keyboard. You will also need 70MB of room on your HDD for the software, and you need an internet connection to get said software since there isn't a driver disc included. Along with the keyboard, a palm rest, and some documentation, the G710+ comes with a one year warranty.
Logitech does not, however, say anything about what the keyboard frame is made of, or even the types of switches included, so here I go to deliver that information. The frame of the G710+ is made of black plastic and is comprised of two pieces. There is the top half of it that wraps in and out of the keys and around the outer edge to offer you the textured and shiny black surfaces on the top, and even the splash of orange plastic on the left. The lower half is constructed with supports and loads of holes to keep the top and bottom sandwiched together with screws.
Inside of the keyboard, this lower half has a steel plate containing the switches screwed directly to it. On this steel plate you will find a hybrid setup of switches. While most are MX Cherry Brown switches, the M-Keys, lighting keys, and multimedia keys are all backed with rubber dome switches. Another feature of this keyboard is the white backlighting that the G710+ offers, and each switch is individually lit, including the rubber domes. Taking that a step further, there are two dimmer switches on the layout that allows users to fine tune the W, A, S, D, and arrow keys, while the other adjusts the rest of the keyboard, both with five levels of light each.
Since the Logitech G710+ has been on the market for a bit now, finding one is pretty easy. As I went to Google to locate it, I found over 50 locations offering this mechanical gaming keyboard. On the low end of the spectrum you can locate this board at a price of $119.99 shipped to your door. Shop wisely as you look to buy one of these though, because with so many places offering the keyboard, pricing does wander into the $170 range, so buyers definitely beware when shopping for this.
Since the price spread is so wide, for the purpose of this article I will go with the Newegg listings price of $127.93 shipped to your door, as that is where most of our readers will shop for it anyways. In the grand scheme of things, the pricing isn't bad, but let's get down to brass tacks and see what Logitech delivers for the money.
