Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Tactile High-Speed Keys 920-003887 - Black
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good feel for typing, not too noisy.

Cons: When used with any of several distros of Linux, this keyboard will type a constant stream of 6's once booted. Generally moving the volume roller stops the stream of 6's until the next boot.

There is a driver patch to fix this, but you have to build and install it yourself.

Other Thoughts: I have never heard of a keyboard having this type of OS specific behavior. While it's not unusual for extra keys or non-standard functionality to not carry over to Linux, I have never heard of a keyboard that fails basic functionality when used with Linux.

Logitech's response on their forums to this problem is that the keyboard is designed for Windows and Linux is not supported.
