Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard clickity-clacks into the limelight

Logitech has been making some of the coolest gaming keyboards for years that fit into its G-series of gaming accessories for computer users. Logitech has announced a new gaming keyboard today called the G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Mechanical keys are something that many gamers and touch typists love, even if mechanical keys typically make for very noisy typing action.

Logitech says that the mechanical keys it uses in the keyboard are quiet and feature dual-zone backlighting. The keys used promise tactile feel while reducing the noise typically associated with clicking mechanical switches. Logitech uses integrated damping rings to reduce noise produced even further when the keyboard is being used.

Logitech says that the mechanical keys have a life expectancy of at least 50 million keystrokes. The keyboard uses a full anti-ghosting matrix and has 26-key rollover. That means you can press 26 keys at the same time with all 26 presses being reported to the computer. That should mean no matter how complex the macro, the G710+ let you do it.

The dual-zone backlighting allows the user to adjust the backlighting level around arrow keys and the WASD keys independently from the backlighting used for the rest of the keyboard. The keyboard also has six programmable G-keys for binding macros or other controls. The keyboard also has a full array of media controls and a game mode switch to deactivate the Windows key when you're getting your game on. The keyboard can be pre-ordered now for $149.99.
