Logitech G710 PLUS USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard- Cherry MX Brown
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Goldilocks Effect 08/18/2013

This review is from: Logitech G710 PLUS USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard- Cherry MX Brown

Pros: *Ergonomic
*Good key feedback
*Nice color separation of WASD and arrow keys
*Bright backlight
*Solid construction

Cons: *Flimsy wrist rest compared to some other gaming keyboards
*Price compared to similar models - wait till it goes on sale

Other Thoughts: This keyboard delivers. This is the third keyboard I've bought in about a year because I just couldn't find one that I liked. First was the Logitech 510 which was pretty good but kinda dull in the keys. Next I bought the Corsair Vengeance K90 and it was beautiful and well constructed but the keys were too sensitive, and worst of all the keys would go dead in the middle of a game, forcing a restart. Their firmware updates didn't fix this.

I finally had enough of the K90's problems so I gave this keyboard a try and have finally found the right fit.

Pro gamers go for simplicity, and that's what this keyboard delivers. It just works, and works well. Everything is designed to contrast with other parts, so you can find the keys you need quickly. For those who also use their keyboard to type, it works like a charm for this purpose as well.

Logitech really got it right with this keyboard and I look forward to many happy years with it.

Corsair Vengeance K70 CH-9000019-NA Silver USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: *Great look
*Nice back lighting
*Responsive keys
*Durable build

Cons: *Firmware sucks
*Firmware updater won't work with my computer
*Customer support sucks
*Keyboard won't work in certain safe modes
*Requires 2 USB ports
*Very easy to make typos because the keys are so sensitive
*Keys will stop working or scramble their functionality in the middle of a game (not due to turning num lock off but similar results)

Other Thoughts: After dealing with the quirkiness of this keyboard for a little over a year, I finally got sick of it and switched back to my old keyboard, my trusty Logitech G510.

A few months after I got this keyboard, and the problems had been happening, I emailed Corsair customer support but it took them a few weeks to respond, and they were entirely unhelpful. Their firmware update utility doesn't work either, so I have never been able to update the firmware which I hear can help with the problems this keyboard has.

To sum it up, this keyboard is all looks but doesn't deliver. I would not buy this again.

Corsair Vengeance K90  Black/Metal USB Wired Gaming Performance, MMO Mechanical Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * Responsive Keys
* Beautiful design
* Rugged
* Bright backlight
* Comfortable

Cons: Quirky firmware

Other Thoughts: I love this keyboard. My only complaint is that at least once a day, keys will stop working. I know it is software or firmware related, as certain keys will suddenly remap to other keys. I have tried a firmware update but it gave me an error message.

Only issue keeping me from giving it 5 stars.
