Logitech G710+ Gaming Keyboard Review
One area where the G710 might let itself down is its overall design. The angular shape, many logos, and gray and black plastic combinations – with orange flashes around the ‘G’ button – all are very player-oriented but not what you call style. It’s certainly far from the simplicity of brushed aluminum and the premium feel of the Corsair K-series keyboard.
Nevertheless, this is a kit that is put together well, even though everything made of plastic. There is little flexibility if you press hard on the center of the keyboard but use it as hard as a rock. Indeed, Logitech even showed on its website that the keyboard works after being hit by a tank.
At the bottom, there are four large rubber pads to stop the keyboard from sliding around, and the flip-up legs are required to create steeper typing angles. There is only one level of adjustment here, unlike some keyboards that offer two-foot lengths. On the back edge is a backup USB port – the cable is moored. You must plug the second USB plug into the main cable to activate it.
The G710 does, in other words, extraordinary. An excellent typing experience, with fast action but light on the keys that allows typing faster than we can achieve on a keyboard equipped with a rubber membrane.
The actual benefits of this responsiveness are less clear for most game scenarios, but of course, a longer button life will be appreciated.
The only problem we have with typing every day is the label on the button. Apart from using a rather strange font, for some reason, Logitech has flipped the convention and placed the main function label of each button at the top and the secondary function below. The backlight coming through is far less bright on secondary purposes, so all said it could make it a little to find the key you are looking for.
Despite the noise reduction, this is still a keyboard that is noisier than your average rubber membrane problem, but this is a welcome improvement. For those who really can’t stand a loud keyboard, this might not be far enough yet.
Logitech has slipped a bit in the style of the G710, and for many people, it would be too expensive, but apart from that, the premium gaming keyboard is fantastic.
The Bad > Keys have no texture Flimsy wrist rest
The Good > Excellent physical design Best-in-class software Easy to record and use macros Smart, efficient key placement
Conclusion > The Logitech G710+ has everything a good gaming keyboard requires and nothing extraneous.
