The G710+ Continued
Off to the right you have 30 more keys that make up the command section as well as the number pad. Also just like the W, A, S and D keys, the arrow keys are also shipped with grey key caps on them.
I removed a bunch of key caps to see what is going on under them. I found that the bulk of the keys are utilizing the quiet, but tactile Cherry MX Brown switches. Under the M1 key though, as well as all of the thin keys like it, there are rubber membrane switches used.
I did the same thing on the other end of the board and removed a few keys again. As was the situation on the other end, most keys are the brown switches, but the thin multimedia keys are rubber dome switches.
Looking at where the rubber coated, two meter cable comes from the keyboard, I found that the G710+ has an extra USB 2.0 port there too for a mouse or a headset.
With the G710+ flipped over, you can see it is supported on four rubber feet to keep it from moving around on the desk top. If you look closely near the center of the board, you can see there is a wire management trail offered as well to tidy up whatever you plug into the extra port in the back.
In the back, just inside of the rubber feet, there are plastic flip out supports that allows the board to offer a more ergonomic stance on the desktop.
Flipping the feet out I noticed that you lose the rubber pad, and all that is left to keep the keyboard in place now is the edges of the plastic feet. As for the height difference, when these are out like this you get three eighths of an inch height increase to the back of the keyboard.
The rubberized, two meter cable also carries bits of the orange seen on the keyboard. The large section of orange plastic on the left is where the cables separate, and as they terminate in the USB 2.0 plugs at the right, these ends are also orange so they are easy to find on the rear I/O panel.
