Summary: As a previous poster had mentioned the key faces are smaller than normal size but I haven't found that to be a problem. I bought this as my first mechanical keyboard and I really like the feel of the switches. I would like the ability to have more control over the custom lighting but as a first keyboard not too bad. It's an ok keyboard but if you spend a little more you could get something with more options.
Pros: Good mechanical feel, Dedicated media keys, Solid cable
Summary: This is my first mechanical keyboard in many years so it has been taking some getting used to for typing, but I really like the responses for gaming. The keys actually feel a little small on their faces. For a $150 keyboard I'd have liked to have a board that didn't have so much flex in the chassis, and the keys pop off way too easily for my liking. I knocked the keyboard over and 4 keys popped off. Since then a few have popped off again.
Pros: -great response from the mechanical keys, -dual zone & LED keys with dimming, -solid cable
Cons: -keys pop off WAY too easily, -volume control, -chassis flex
Summary: All in all I am happy with this keyboard. Takes a bit of adjusting to switch from a membrane keyboard but definitely has a great feel once you get used to it. It also has a sturdy feel to it so hopefully it will have a long life. UPDATE -After 2 weeks of use the backlighting died for the "enter","shift","." "," and "/" keys. Fortunately it was within 30 days of purchase and NCIX RMAed it.
Pros: -cool white back-lighting., -perfect clickiness of keys yet quiet
Cons: -pricy... especially when not on sale, UPDATE:, -Back lighting died after 2 weeks of use
Summary: Over the years I have owned many Logitech products, from mice to keyboards to headsets, and generally speaking the quality of the products have been exceptional. However there have been exceptions in the past (G15 second edition keyboard) and now again with the G710+. Let me throw down some positives first. I really do love the design.
Summary: Not impressed by the hype as well as the cost for these boards made up of the old tech forgotten normally. Don't get me wrong, technically they're excellent key boards. Like everything Logitec makes, they are top notch. I'm disappointed that these "push button" are so spring loaded with hype to catch a few noobs on such technicality. I remember the old key boards that were tossed because they had those stiff, noisy "clickers" and were not up to date... as it were.
Summary: ...but not working for me :( Overall it's a great concept and decent workmanship but it's not the keyboard I am looking for: Pros: - back lit Cherry MX switches - key caps with dampening rings installed - soft touch coating on key caps - G-keys, MM keys/controller - game mode - USB 2.0 pass through - sturdy and heavy Cons: - looks like the LED's are PWM controlled for brightness and power saving.
Summary: This keyboard could have been perfect for me. Ordered it to replace my previous mechanical keyboard because: 1. It was suppose to be more quiet. 2. The alternate key symbols light up. They delivered on 1, this keyboard is super quiet for a mechanical keyboard. On 2 they sorta dropped the ball. The alternate key symbols do light up, that's assuming your keys light up at all.
Summary: Purchased various brands of mechanical keyboards looking for the perfect balance of gaming and typing. With the G710+ I found typing and gaming heaven with the Cherry MX Brown keys --- but the keyboard has one major flaw. The Cherry Brown's a have a superior feel, make typing a breeze, and are quiet --- except for the space bar. For some reason, the space bar is very loud so typing is tip-tap-tippity-tappity-CLUNK-tip-tap-tip-CLUNK-tap-CLUNK.
Summary: These Cherry Brown keys are quieter than Cherry Red/Black/Blue because these keys have a rubber band around the bottom, to prevent you from bottoming out with too much force. Build quality is questionable, because the plastic that the keys are made of aren't that thick. My left Ctrl key comes off, which shouldn't happen after only 6 months for a $170 keyboard. In the past I've never minded glossy surfaces that attract dust, but it's starting to bother me.
Pros: - It's actually quiet (!) as far as mechanical keyboards go., - Several different lighting settings; can light up just the WASD keys, - has a 'Disable Windows Key', - Media control keys, - Sturdy volume rocker
Cons: - Keys have questionable build quality, - Dust MAGNET, - A little too expensive for what I got
Summary: This package is interesting, the G500 is a great mouse, and has great build quality. The G710+ has perhaps only one redeeming quality, the quiet keys. The location of the macro buttons is badly placed, reaching for escape button often results in hitting G1 button. The wrist rest is small, and of atrocious build quality.
Pros: -G500 is a very good, comfortable all around mouse
Cons: -G710+ has little redeeming qualities, would not get this keyboard again.
