Logitech has announced the newest addition to its G-Series of gaming products - the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. As per an official statement by the company, the keyboard is designed to help gamers focus on the game, and is tested and tuned to deliver what gamers want: 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 keyboard’s mechanical keys deliver gaming-grade responsiveness, with an actuation force of 45 grams and distance of 4mm, and are optimised 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 cycle life of at least 50 million keystrokes.
The entire keyboard is backlit in white LED light, adjustable to one of four brightness levels, and can be turned completely off. For better visibility of the WASD and arrow keys, their brightness can be adjusted independently of the rest of the keyboard.
Using the newly updated Logitech Gaming Software, you can 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. Plus, all 110 keys feature anti-ghosting and 26-key rollover to help ensure you can execute complex key-commands with flawless precision. The Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is compatible with Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista.
"The first major event that I used the Logitech keyboard was at MLG Summer Arena,” said NYJacky from Team Curse. “I looked at my creep score after the tournament and it was higher than normal. Most of the time you need to get used to a keyboard - this one you just slip into quickly. I would never, ever think of using anything else."
Recently, Logitech had launched its own brand of accessories for Apple devices like the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover, Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio and the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760.
The Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover for the iPad, as per the company, protects the iPad screen with an aluminium cover that adds minimal weight to your tablet, and features a built-in keyboard that pairs through Bluetooth.
The Logitech Solar Keyboard Folio includes onboard solar cells that charge the built-in Bluetooth keyboard in any light, whether indoors or outdoors. When fully charged, the battery lasts for up to two years, even in complete darkness (based on an average use of two hours per day).
The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K760 has onboard solar cells. With a Bluetooth connection, you can pair your keyboard to as many as three devices and switch among them without having to reconnect.
The Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is expected to be available from this month for a suggested retail price of $149.99 (around Rs 7,900).
