updated 04:05 am EDT, Tue October 9, 2012

Backlit keyboard lifetime expected to be 50 million keystrokes

Logitech announced the newest addition to its G-Series line of high performance gaming products today, with the reveal of the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. 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, the grouping's brightness can be adjusted independently of the rest of the keyboard.

The keyboard's mechanical keys deliver excellent responsiveness, featuring an actuation force of 45g and distance of 4 mm, and are optimized for rapid command entry. Additionally, the non-clicking key switches have a built-in dampening ring underneath each keycap to reduce the noise coming from key presses without sacrificing responsiveness. The G710+ keyboard has undergone a testing process to help ensure durability, with a cycle life of at least a 50 million keystrokes.

Using the newly updated Logitech Gaming Software, the user can assign complex macros or Lua gaming scripts to the keyboard's G-keys for up to 18 individual functions per game both on the fly and pre-game. All 110 keys feature anti-ghosting and 26-key rollover to help ensure execution of complex key-commands with precision. The Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard software is compatible with Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista.

The Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in October and December 2012, respectively, for a suggested retail price of $150. Electronista is in the process of evaluating this keyboard, watch for our upcoming review.
