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.
would recommend the Razer Deathstalker as it's the best Membrane keyboard ...

Summary: not as quiet as you would expect it to be, decent keyboard though, would recommend the Razer Deathstalker as it's the best Membrane keyboard so far and still has the responsiveness of a mechanical keyboard
