Had mine since close to day 1. No issues with component failures, but I do have a few gripes with the design.
  • First, I don't like the extra function keys on the far left. Purely personal preference. The keyboard is already very large, and that makes it even bigger.
  • Im not a fan of the cherry browns. The keyboard doesn't feel like a mechanical board to me. Again, personal preference.
  • The numlock, capslock, and scroll lock LEDs do not adjust brightness like every other key does. That's annoying and poor design.

The keyboard works fine, but I will be selling it in the near future. I'm less concerned about LEDs dying; Logitech takes care of its customers.

*commits suicide*
if the G710 is bad enough not to deserve this list, here are my other options:

note:tukendi means OOS, and you see the price differences between them. those are the only options i have if i want a mech keyboard in turkey.

Just because a board isn't on the list doesn't mean you should avoid it like the plague.

I'm not convinced it should be taken off, so I will put up a poll soon (once I can get a mod to take the poll down when it's completed).

Are you kidding me? Removing the Logitech from the list?

Let me put it this way, unlike a lot of people who own mechanical keyboards I've never been a fanboy of any computer part. Which ever works the best and provides the features I need is the one I choose, especially price in mind.
The Logitech is the ONLY keyboard that fulfilled all my desires and needs of a keyboard.
I don't have much experience in mechanical keyboards, but went head first and dropped £150 on the g710+.
With that money I could have bought 80% of other brands and keyboards out there, but they didn't fulfil my needs and wants.
As soon as I got the g710+ it grew on me and I couldn't stop typing on it.
Then I got curious about other switches and other brands.
I went to best buy, whilst being in the USA, and they had a few mechanical keyboards on show. Some that are actively recommended here and others that I hadn't heard of (probably due to my lack of knowledge in the subject).
Anyway, tried the rest and then I came out of best buy and thought to myself: I'm so glad of my purchase. It was the right and best purchase, even though in the USA the g710+ goes for under £70, half of what I paid.
Long story short: there still isn't a keyboard that fulfils what I wanted, apart from the g710+.
Couple good technology, with a good brand, I find it utterly ridiculous to remove this keyboard from the recommended list. I would like to know why it is wanting to be removed.
Is it because some fanboys can't stand cheaper products that perform as good, or is it maybe the fact that it has more features and product support?

A poll will only bring votes of non-owners who don't know or do not like Logitech perhaps on a personal level. If you do a poll, perhaps do one for all the keyboards on that list in all fairness. As I've come to learn polls are popularity votes mostly without much merit to back up the voters decision.

EDIT: One can argue for the price there might be better keyboards out there, still feel regardless it's a worthy keyboard to recommend having been an owner now for quite some time. Love the brown mx keys and the O-rings it has to dampen sound further. For my needs in the room I use this keyboard it's a plus.

Leopold FC660C does! biggrin.gif
Edit: The 710+ is a bit pricey even though it offers backlighting. Feel is quite nice but you can do orings yourself and full sized layout is a bit much if you're going to be doing gaming mostly. btw HHKB should be under compact for Topre, and please add the Leopold to the Topre compact list! I such a fanboy but it really is a good board.

I got my G710 when it first came out back in October, I think? I have had not one problem with it. It's been, by far, the best keyboard I've ever owned. Logitech's support is nearly unparalleled. The board is heavy and strong with very little flex and I personally love MX Browns. I think it should stay on the list. It doesn't have the reputation of more established Mech Keyboard brands but it was a great first shot by Logitech, and other than a few bad LEDs at the beginning of it's production run, I haven't heard of any other problems. I was one of the first to get one and each one of my LED's is going strong.

I'm pretty sure the Corsair K95 does the same as the G710+.

Ok fine.

As long as no other problems crop up, the G710+ stays.
