Default Logitech Rolls-out Gamer-oriented G710+ Mechanical Keyboard

The peripheral market has become littered with mechanical keyboards, but despite that being the case, one of the world's largest peripheral vendors has remained silent - until now. I'm of course talking about Logitech. With its just-launched G710+, the company finally offers its fans a mechanical offering, and being a "G" model, there's a big focus on the gamer. Could the G710+ become a must-have mechanical offering? Let's see what it brings to the table.

I really hoped that a LED screen would be included. Since I haven't bought a new keyboard yet, and it will be sometime before I do, I will keep an eye on the logitech camp.

I was just thinking the same exact thing. My Lycosa does weird stuff and Razer wants me to ship it to them before sending me a replacement. That means I either have no real use of my PC for however long that takes or I buy a new keyboard. If I'm buying a new keyboard I'm definitely not bothering with the Lycossa after that.

I agree on the lack of an LCD, and it's been a common argument I've seen around the Web as well. Especially for $150... it would have been nice to see.
