Logitech intros G710+ mechanical keyboard
Popular PC peripherals maker Logitech has announced its latest gaming keyboard dubbed G710+. The new keyboard has been designed for high performance gaming, minimal distraction, rapid response and complete control.
“The Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard was created to meet the specific needs of gamers,” said Mark Starrett, senior global product manager for Logitech. “We road tested this keyboard with professional gamers, partners, publishers, and everyday gamers like you and me, to ensure we’ve created a mechanical gaming keyboard that exceeds expectations.”
The G710+ comes with a full set of mechanical keys that feature an actuation force of 45g and distance of 4 mm with all of the keys optimized for rapid command entry. Additionally, the non-clicking key switches have a built-in dampening ring underneath each keycap to significantly reduce the distracting noise coming from your key presses without sacrificing responsiveness. The keyboard has undergone a torturous testing process to help ensure durability, with a life cycle of at least 50 million keystrokes.
The G710+ is also backlit in white LED light that can be adjusted to one of the four pre-configured brightness levels. Users also have the option to turn the LED light completely off. The keyboard comes with the newly updated Logitech Gaming Software that allows you to assign complex macros or intricate Lua gaming scripts to the keyboard’s G-keys – both on the fly and in advance – for up to 18 individual functions per game. Furthermore all 110 keys feature anti-ghosting and 26-key rollover to help ensure you can execute complex key-commands with flawless precision.
The new Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is fully compatible with Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista. To further emphasize its compatibility with Windows 8, the keyboard comes with the new revamped Windows logo on its Windows keys.
The keyboard will become available in the US this month with wide European retail availability expected in December. The G710+ will cost 149.99 USD.
