Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Full Disclosure: Logitech provided the product sample used in this article.
I am not sure who the largest manufacturer of aftermarket keyboards is, but surely Swiss company Logitech must rank among the top tier. Founded in 1981, the company makes a dizzying array of computer accessories, including keyboards, mice, touch pads, speakers, web cams, and tablet accessories. It seems odd that after all these years, they're just now introducing their first mechanical keyboard, the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Equipped with Cherry MX mechanical switches, controllable backlighting, and supported by Logitech Gaming Software, this new product is aimed squarely at the gamer who wants more than a rubber-dome keyboard can supply.
The German company Cherry provides the bulk of mechanical keyboard switches to manufacturers, and offers a variety of switch models, distinguished by their "action" and the color of the key switch plunger. Logitech has made the somewhat unusual choice of Cherry MX Brown switches for this keyboard, and I'll discuss the ramifications of this choice later in the review.
