Logitech Releases G710 Keyboard With Cherry MX Blue Switches

Posted by at 12:10 pm on October 28, 2014


Silently, Logitech has revealed its new G710 mechanical gaming keyboard. The keyboard is much like the older G710+, with just a couple differences.

The G710+ came with Cherry MX Brown switches, along with o-rings around every key to dampen the sound of bottoming keys out. It was built to be a silent gamingkeyboard, because at the time mechanical keyboards were known to be particularly loud.

Now,Cherry MX Brown switch has been growing in popularity, particularly because it shows that a mechanical keyboard doesn’t have to be loud. But Logitech picked the Cherry MX Blue mechanical switches, which have both tactile and auditory feedback, and are therefore louder. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but some may not care for it.

Aside from the Cherry MX Blue switches, the ring around the G-Keys is now also blue instead of orange, and that’s about it. The keyboard still has dual-zone adjustable white LED backlighting, media keys, six programmable G-keys, a game-mode switch, 26-key rollover over USB, and a USB pass-through port.

The Logitech G710 gaming keyboard with Cherry MX Blue has a MSRP is $149.99, although it’s widely known that Logitech’s MSRPs are always higher than the actual street prices.
