Mechanical-switch keyboard more high-end than usual
Input peripherals can be taken for granted by the general computing populace. As long as a slab of plastic machined into a keyboard or mouse gets the job done, it can often be disregarded as "performing as intended." Gamers have a different set of criteria on what makes a keyboard excel at its task, rather than just adequately performing. Logitech has been building gaming keyboards for some time, but the G710+ marks a first for the peripheral manufacturer -- a mechanical keyswitch gaming keyboard. Does the addition of the high-end feature add anything to the input device, and increase responsiveness as claimed? We'll see in our review.
