Logitech announced the latest addition to its G-Series line in the form of the new Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. This keyboard features high-speed, low-noise mechanical keys and adjustable dual-zone backlighting.

Logitech realizes rapid command entry is important to gamers so the G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard features an actuation force of 45g and distance of 4 mm. To reduce noise, each keycap has a built-in dampening ring underneath. To ensure the keyboard can withstand rigorous use, the keyboard has been tested to ensure a durability of at least a 50 million keystrokes.

The keyboard is backlit using a white LED light that can be adjusted to four brightness levels. You can also turn off the backlight. In addition, the brightness of the WASD keys and arrow keys can be adjusted independently of the rest of the keyboard.

You can use the Logitech Gaming Software to assign complex macros or intricate Lua gaming scripts to the keyboard’s G-keys. The keyboard supports up to 18 individual functions per game. The Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is compatible with Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista. Expect the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard to be available in October for about $150.

put those keys on my G19's with the LED screen, add the G15's amount of function keys and make it PC/Mac compatible and I'll buy a new keyboard.

I take it you havent used mech? Sure, not as many functions, but for actual use of the keys, it beats the pants off yours. Thank you Logitech for finally recognising the need, but Ive got my Filcos...

Looks a lot like my CoolerMaster Storm, which I got for $100 from Fry's a few months ago - 1/3 cheaper...

It looks OK, but my Corsair K90 is doing great for me. Mechanical keys really ~are~ the way to go.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
