Looking for a replacement for Logitech G710+

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I love the keyboard, but the solid white color is boring. Are there any other keyboards that look good, have optional backlighting colors, and have the asdw keys with different colors and brightness? Of course, I would also like the keyboard to be a quality board with mechanical keys. I know this is quite a bit to ask for, but I looked around quite a bit and although I can't find anything, I am sure I could be missing something.

You're not going to find a widely available RGB backlit mechanical keyboard (fairly sure one doesn't exist). This is because the common RGB LED's found in some rubber-dome boards are too large and don't have compatible connections to allow them to be fitted to the Cherry MX Switches.

Thanks Gabsonuro, I checked out the Duckys since they seem to be a favorite here on OCN, but I like the macro keys on the left, and I personally don't like the look of them.

Thanks for the info Paradigm, I didn't know any of that but it makes sense. Very good to know.

I am slowly falling more in love with this keyboard, it is really solidly built, and the white color is starting to come off really crisp and clean. I think I am just wary since I spent $130 on it. However, I can't find another keyboard that has all the features of this one that also pulls off a good look for a less price. I have checked out the Corsairs, the Duckys, the Razers, and Coolermaster. The only one that grabbed my eye at all was the CM Storm Quickfire TK, because it is much cheaper and has the options I would like, except that it is missing the macro keys. I like the look of it too, but overall, even though it is nearly double the price, I think I am going to stick with the Logitech G710+. This thing just looks and feels outstanding now that I have had a couple days to get used to it. It is very quiet and just feels so sturdy and clean when I type or game.

Thanks for the help guys.

The G710+ is a very solid keyboard, as long as your unit doesn't have backlighting failure problems. The Brown switches on the Logitech all seem to have the exact same crispness and resistance uniform. Oddly enough, the Shine 3 seems to have slightly different variance on different keys, but feels 'better" to type on, once you fix/lube the issue with some samples of shft key/spacebar sticking (seems to happen on some boards with cherry stabilizers.
