Pros: has my favorite cherry mx brown switches(there soft and quit were the blue's are loud and stiffer) and i have been hammering this thing playing starcraft 2 at 150+apm on it 8 hour since i got it a month ago and just like new still.(i have never had something logitech die on me no surprise). i love having the volume play/pause and skip song on the keyboard makes switching songs mid game easy. the logitech software is easy to use and set up your g keys, macro's ect, and...
Summary: Replaced my standard keyboard that came with an eMachines computer years ago. I game a lot - not sure why I waited so long. This one is worth it. Logitech makes quality products - haven't let me down yet. Not into "macros" while gaming, so I can't comment on that functionality.
Pros: Haven't had the keyboard for too long, but the difference between this and an ordinary membrane keyboard is night and day. The Cherry MX blues feel very good to type long reports on, and more applicable for gaming as this keyboard is clearly intended. All the keys appear to be Cherry MX blues except for the AUX function keys at the very top of the keyboard (M1-MR and the pause/play type buttons).
Cons: I won't really deduct any stars for this as I don't really consider it a huge deal breaker given how well the keyboard feels, but my one complaint is that out of the WASD keys, the A feels a little mushy unlike the rest of the keys which seem to have a uniform resistance to them. I can't hear an audible click from this key and it seems to have less pressure required to engage. The keyboard is also fairly large which makes having my mouse beside it difficult as I find ...
Summary: Words cannot describe how wonderful this keyboard looks and feels. I know I put it in the Pros, but the volume wheel alone is worth the price of admission. I highly recommend it.
Pros: Great tactile feel, exactly what you should expect from a mechanical keyboard. Backlighting is beautiful...easy to read and evenly lit. Volume wheel is worth it's weight in gold...infinitely better than buttons. It has a proper Linux layout (pipe key above the enter). G keys are easy to program.
Cons: Noisy, exactly what you should expect from a mechanical keyboard. G keys take some getting used to...I continually hit the G6 key rather than Ctrl and G1 rather than Escape, even after months of using it. The G keys only allow keyboard macros...will not allow you to add in mouse clicks. The shift functions of the keys are printed below the normal functions rather than above like other keyboards...and they used an odd font for them.
Summary: I should also comment on the USB pass-through it has on its back. Very handy. Plug my mouse into it, and it works just fine.
Pros: This was the 1st mechanical gaming keyboard I've purchased to go with the G600 mouse I bought earlier. I've been loving it since buying it. Before I used Logitech's K500 keyboard, which wasn't bad either, but nothing like this. Keys are snappy, it's very responsive (no keyboard I've owned before catches all the keys pressed when slamming a hand down onto it XD). The G keys are easy to program and its back lighting, IMO, actually can be too bright at times, but it can ...
Cons: I can not think of any cons so far. Works very well.
Pros: Mechanical. Snappy but not too loud or clicky! "Brown cherry switches" Well lit and dimmable if needed. Sturdy durable feel. Best keyboard I've owned to date. I've been gaming since Tandy TRS80! haha!
Cons: None. More colors options for the backlit keys? But then the price goes up! I'm happy as it is!
Summary: Brown and Blue switches are here, will there be Red and Black version in future?
Pros: Owned a brown switch version G710+ since 2013, still working perfectly. So I believe this blue switch version will be the same. Everything feels quite similar comparing these two keyboards except for the switch types. The obvious difference is that Logitech improve the volume button, it does not make noise anymore.
Cons: Volume control does not show any volume tip on screen. I don't know why Logitech doesn't add the feature to the software, just like their other products K350.
