Infotech Lead America: Logitech’s G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard features an actuation force of 45g and distance of 4 mm, and is optimized for rapid command entry.
The newly launched keyboard offers minimal distraction, rapid response, and complete control to gamers.
Logitech has priced G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard at $149.99.
The new keyboard is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in October and December 2012, respectively.
“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,” said Mark Starrett, senior global product manager for Logitech.
Moreover, 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 a 50 million keystrokes.
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. 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,” said NYJacky from Team Curse.
