Logitech F710 Wireless Gamepad Review

The Design

The Logitech F710 arrives in a silver / black body with a bottom shell coated with a matte black surface for maximum grip that wraps in the sides. The silver front seems plain and simple, with the only different colored buttons in the Logitech F710 duotone scheme.
Flipping, we can see the back of the gamepad with a matte coating.

Logitech’s Nano-Plug Receiver is so small that you will completely forget about it after use, so be sure to store your receiver in its slot in the Logitech F710 battery compartment when not in use for a long time. Or you can attach the receiver to the supplied extension cable.

Performance

Testing Logitech F710, we launched the latest games about Steam, which featured gamepad support, Final Fantasy XIII, and Valkyria Chronicles. We like to play my RPG that is put on my chair, and it’s cold while my fighting game is very close. At a line of sight about 2 meters from the receiver, the response is still good, but sticking the receiver near my AC1200 WIFI dongle proved to be somewhat annoying to disturb the gamepad signal. Moving the receiver behind is not on top of my best practice list, but surprisingly the Logitech F710 still has good reception from there even with an internal WIFI antenna positioned there. Some fans of fighting games may worry about gamepad responses, and that is a legitimate concern. With a distance of 2 meters or more, the delay is visible but less than one meter, this lag is practically non-existent and offers solid performance for time-defining games such as fighting games.

Moving to comfort, this must vary from person to person. We prefer peripherals that are heavier than my mouse to the gamepad, and Logitech F710 is perfect for me. The grip is well designed, and PSX gamers will feel right at home withhold while the layout of the Xbox 360 buttons should be an easy adjustment for any player. While the thumbsticks might be the opposite way for X360 users, coming from PS, we very comfortable with this design, particularly for fighting games. Thumbsticks might be a little loose, and those accustomed to the adjustable sticks from the Razer Onza might feel it’s a significant departure, but to play casually, we find the F710 is a bit right after you think the stick’s input.

Battery

Battery life should be a matter for anyone especially those who play online multiplayer games and many of Logitech’s disappointments, we really have to postpone this review until we can fully ensure that the F710 doesn’t out of battery unlike the rest of the Razer Onza Tournament pads The edition all have thumbs, paint, and buttons worn after playing a disappointing 1 month hardcore game. Logitech F710 is subject to the same type of conditions as we did with one of my pads: an extended game session about racing, fighting, and RPG games, and we are happy to say that Logitech made something very durable with F710. Oh, and did we mention we haven’t change the battery yet? Yup, that’s almost 200+ hours of gameplay. There is no battery replaced.

The Point

There is really nothing spectacular, you can say about the gamepad. Of course, there are special pads out there that have a fast fire, turbo button, multifunction button, etc. But in the end, it’s about letting you have a pleasant experience with your game. With Logitech F710, you get a fully functional gamepad compatible with many games and has full support

The Bad > A little heavier than some controllers, can be awkward to hold at first

The Good > Lots of inputs/buttons/triggers, good battery life, connects easily, solid build

Conclusion > choose the Logitech G915 if you need a top-of-the-line wireless gaming keyboard with no compromises. However, avoid it if you can’t stomach the $250 price tag.
