This review is from: Logitech G710 PLUS USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard- Cherry MX Brown
Pros: -Media Keys to adjust volume, fast forward, pause,play, etc.
-LED White Backlight to help you see better when playing/typing in dark room at night time
-6 Programmable Keys
-3 Profiles Keys to switch in between them
-Cherry MX Brown Tactile Switches with O-Rings Dampener feel phenomenally comfortable and delivers exceptional bump feel
-Palm Rest to reduce wrist fatigue
-WASD and Arrow Key Caps are marked grey and it's well distinguished
-26 Key Rollover
-LGS Driver was simple and easy to install
-Whenever there's a problem with this Logitech keyboard, it is easy to contact Logitech customer representative, and then they will send you free UPS Return Shipping Label in order to get exchange.
-it comes with 3-year limited warranty
Cons: -USB Cables need to be fiber braided cable to enhance wiring protection
-Need couple hub switches to connect other peripheral devices for recharging MP3, camera, smartphone, printer, etc.
-LED Backlight doesn't turn off automatically by default when booting to windows with LGS.
-It's a bit prohibitive than competitor Razer Blackwidow, but you get good quality & service and reliability
Other Thoughts: -I wish there's LED Backlight settings in LGS Driver to manually turn off LED, and then use it at night time.
-Volume Scroll should be either Volume Speaker Tuner to rotate or make it more smooth to scroll down faster.
-Please make G710+ without O-Ring Dampeners and stick with Cherry MX Brown Switches (Soft-Tactile Bump switches).
-Palm rest easily comes out. Please make palm rest more sturdy and hard so that it won't come off that easily.
-Please add different color variations for LED Backlight including Green, Orange, Brown, Cyan, White, and Red.
This review is from: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth Edition Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Pros: -LED Backlight to see a lot easier when typing in dark room
-5 Macro Keys to add keyboard functions, shortcuts, hotkeys, etc.
-Fiber Braided Cable to enhance cable protection
-Orange Switches are soft-tactile switch, but not clicky
-45grams actuation force
-10 Key Roll Over
Cons: -Keys feel mushy and hard when typing
-Springs inside the make some weird high-pitch grinding clamp noises even when pressing the keys with less force
-Razer Synapse 2.0 Driver is a joke. It takes too long to download and install the drivers. Sometimes, drivers won't recognize my input device, even though it is already connected properly.
-It doesn't give stupendous tactile feedback and almost sounds like linear switches.
-Razer Synapse Driver requires account to login and sync with clouds, but I don't have very fast internet connection and it lags when I log in.
-There's no palm rest to reduce wrist fatigue.
-There's no toggle LED Backlight brightness On and Off
Other Thoughts: Razer Synapse Driver still needs a lot of work to be coded properly and device and software needs to communicate each other in order to avoid technical issues.
-Orange Switches doesn't sound and feel comfortable and I still prefer German-Engineered Cherry MX Brown Switches.
-Razer synapse should not require account to login since there's no point to sync up with cloud to store settings. It is better to save profile settings inside the firmware, so that users don't have to constantly login and load up with their profiles.
Overall, I don't recommend this mechanical keyboard. Razer should put more time investment in order to make sure that mechanical switches as well as the springs will work and sound properly.
I highly recommend Logitech G710+ since it has 26Key Rollover, excellent ergonomics, decent cherry mx brown switches tactile feedback, and it feels incredibly smooth and soft. Last but not least, it is so easy to download and install the Logitech Gaming Software Driver in few seconds. And, it is a lot easier to navigate and reconfigure mouse and keyboard settings without hassle. No login required!
This review is from: Razer BlackWidow Expert Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Pros: -Tactile-Clikcy Switch
-Excellent for Typist and/or PC Gamers
-More momentum when typing for typing race
-It's a Mechanical Keyboard
-Fiber Braided Cable
-No Keyboard LED Lit since I don't look at LED when gaming and it's a waste of electricity!
-Less actuation force to reduce fatigue
-Allows you to press 10 Keys simultaneously
-Responsive and accurate
-Cheaper than daskeyboard
-Key switches can last up to 60 million clicks
Cons: -Redundant 5 Macro Keys
-Feels sticky and hard when placing my wrist on mechanical keyboard
Other Thoughts: -Keyboard grip needs to have smooth, glossy matte finish because my hands get sticky when playing more than 3 hours per day.
-5 Macro Keys needs to be removed since most keyboard users don't intentionally use 5 Macro Keys and it's not very useful. Besides, it requires Razer Synapse to enable 5 Macro keys, but some people report that Razer Synapse is having some bug issues and that needs to be addressed immediately, otherwise there'll be compatibility issues!
-Provide Soft-Tactile Switches and consider making (Yellow) Linear Switches in the future for pc gamers and typists.
