What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Tactile High-Speed Keys
  • This is a really nice looking keyboard. A glossy black base plate with sharp blacks and grays with your macro keys highlighted in orange. The look is a perfect balance between sleek minimalism and functionality.
  • Nice keyboard. Good feel. It is best used by someone with medium hands as the key tops are a bit small for a full-sized keyboard. Like most mechanical keyboards it is relatively loud.
  • If you're a PC gamer and are looking to buy your first basic full sized mechanical board, then buy this keyboard.
  • The first thing I noticed when unboxing this thing is how hefty it feels. It has an old-school 90's heft to it. I'm sure it has weights in it but still, it feels very solid.
  • HUGE: big reach for the mouse and takes up a lot of room on the desk
Corsair K70 LUX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Backlit Red
  • The keyboard is very comfortable to use, and the optional handrest is perfect without being "too much". The full-sized keyboard is nice if you're using the numberpad/arrows, or generally like "more room" on a keyboard.
  • The lux is basically the revision to the standard K70, with an updated lighting controller and new keycaps with a wider, larger font. I have to say though once I got the lux and saw how much more light the new font lets though, I really appreciated it.
  • I love the metal frame and heaviness of the keyboard. I'm still getting used to the mechanical keys but i love everything about his keyboard and would recommend it to anyone.
  • Very heavy, nice construction, great cable, USB pass through port carries enough power to operate things like controllers, thumb drives, etc. You won't be charging anything, but it works as a basic cable, allowing you to use much shorter cables for peripheral devices.

What customers say about "Keys"
Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Tactile High-Speed Keys
  • This is a fantastic mechanical keyboard that I'm enjoying a lot and love to type on. It looks professional, the clicking sounds are not loud, the tactile feel is great and the keys are very responsive and I really like the level of sensitivity.
  • This is the best keyboard I've ever owned. Flawless operation for the duration of ownership so far which is going on 2+ years. It's mechanical, has good tactical feedback but isn't obnoxiously loud.
  • Excellent top notch quality keyboard for the gamers out there. Easy to use and contains extra keys for your gaming needs. In addition, the keys illuminate to your desired brightness.
  • The Cherry Brown keys are the perfect balance for me. I find the Blues too loud. The Browns are much quieter, but you still get that firm tactile feedback you want from a mechanical keyboard.
  • The secondary (shift) characters are not illuminated and are hidden underneath the main items on the keys in a dull gray color. difficult to find when looking for a rarely used punctuation character, impossible in a darker room
Corsair K70 LUX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Backlit Red
  • Dedicated Media Controls - these are by far the best media controls I could find on the market. The volume is a knob, and not a pair of buttons, which is very rare for keyboards. Additionally, the 5 dedicated controls (Mute - Stop - Back - Pause/Play - Next).
  • The new keycaps are really good. They feel a bit more premium than the standard K70 caps, and for some reason they actuate much smoother. I think they are great overall.
  • Great keyboard, I've had it for a week or so now, the keys feel extremely smooth and well made.
  • The brushed backplate looks very slick and makes for a nice finish to the look. Another thing I love about the keyboard is that it has open faced keys. It's extremely easy to clean with compressed air or even just a quick blow to remove those pesky particles that get under the keys.
  • After only three weeks of normal use, the plastic on the bottom of my CAPS LOCK key-cap cracked rendering the key-cap unusable. Disappointing for a brand new keyboard, but really no big deal.

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Tactile High-Speed Keys
  • Fully programmable, uber functionality, aesthetically pleasing and built to withstand a tank tread! Must have for serious gamers!
  • Even if you're not a PC gamer, the macro buttons can be put to good use for completing repetitive tasks. Combined with hotkeys and/or a good high end gaming mouse, this is definitely a keyboard that will satisfy power users.
  • Loving the volume control wheel. Much better than some of the volume button controls on other mechanical keyboards.
  • Pretty loud. that's to be expected for a mech keyboard but this one was louder than my Max Keyboard with the same cherry brown setup
  • The palm rest was pretty cheap feeling
  • No LED screen which I had been accustomed to over the years
Corsair K70 LUX Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Backlit Red
  • Overall Look - this thing is beautiful. It does not scream "gaming" with aggressive logos and screen-printed color. Instead, it is just plane black with a black aluminum plate. It has a professional look, and it wouldn't be out of place in an office.
  • I was also hesitant because my standard K70 with red LED does not require the CUE software to run, it's plug and play.
  • The media keys are in the right spot, the keyboard layout is nice (I have large hands and fingers and this is very comfortable to type on).
  • Very good tactile feedback, and the best response key by key basis. I could say it was a beauty to have and work with. I wished I bought the K70 RGB, but in the end I was pretty satisfied with it. The aluminium body is gorgeous and sturdy, but you would need to clean it on a regular basis.
  • The number keys and others that have a symbol are inverted - the number is at the top of the key, and the symbol at the bottom.
  • I love the keyboard, but the software that runs it and all other Corsair products (Corsair Utility Engine, 'CUE') is a hot mess.
