logitech g710 vs g710+ and keyboard recomendations

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So some LED's are dead on my corsair k70 and it is bothering me so time to go keyboard shopping soon. I am looking at something that is blue switches, has dedicated media keys and wheel, and preferably has back light. I came a crossed the Logitech g710 with blue and the g710+ with browns. I have never used browns before so i dont know what i think of them but, are their any other differences between the two other than color and switch type? 

 

On another note if there are any other keyboards out their that you guys use that are MX blues(not sure about the browns yet need to try them out), has media keys and preferably has a backlight than lemme no please. Sop found i found the Logitechs and a DAS keybaord without backlight. (if only the corsair RGBs had blues.

 

Thanks Guys :D

Blues require more actuation force. Also note that the g710+ comes with O-rings which are pre-installed and dampen the sound even more.

Do they feel the same?

both do have a bump feeling in the middle of the switch

but blues require slightly more force to press down

No, its not. If you want a harder brown, then you should get cherry MX clears. The click on the MX blues is very audible, and is much more significant than on browns. I would not get the g710+, as the rubber pads on it make it feel almost as mushy as a membrane keyboard.

Not saying that this isn't the case, but that's kinda the point of getting a keyboard with orings... Extreme silence. The orings are always removable and to be completely straight with you, the 710+ is by far the cheapest (and yet is fairly ok overall) cherry full keyboard so it is by far the best mechanical on a budget.
