The nuts and bolts of Logitech’s new mechanical keyboard

Before we go any further, I would like to say that the keyboard I am typing this on has seen better days. Every keystroke emits a clunky noise, and it rattles along trying its hardest to deafen me as I write this very sentence. If only I had the new mechanical keyboard from Logitech, my world would be so much quieter.


The G710+ mechanical gaming keyboard is, by all accounts, the Lamborghini of computer peripherals. With a host of features, the G710+ is really the answer to your typing woes. The low-noise mechanical keys offer high speed performance, making it ideal for both everyday use and intense gaming sessions. The backlight keys also help aid you when playing or typing long into the night. The white backlit LED light is adjustable between four intensity settings, meaning you can make it as bright as you wish, or even turn it off if your eyes prefer it.

As a gaming keyboard, there are 18 separate individual programmable functions you can utilise that will save you precious time, offering complex combinations of keys at a touch of a button. The mechanical keys are built to last too, and come with a life cycle of 50 million keystrokes. The near silent keystrokes are achieved with dampening rings under each key, and they all feature advanced 26-key rollover anti-ghosting technology meaning your computer will never miss a key press ever again.

You can also control audio settings on your PC from the keyboard, and disable the Windows Start shortcut so you are never in any danger of being distracted whilst gaming.

A worthy keyboard that would grace any serious enthusiasts desktop, the Logitech G710+ is priced at a competitive RRP of £149.99. For more information, visit www.logitech.com.
