Testing

Logitech G710+

The first thing you need to do after plugging in your keyboard is to download the Logitech Gaming Software. Upon installation the software will automatically detect the keyboard and install the proper drivers and everything for it. Once it’s finished you’ll see the screen above. As you can see from the bottom right corner this is the home screen.

Clicking on the key with the G on it next to the home button will bring you to the profile selector/macro screen. Here you can set up to 6 different profiles and set commands for each “M” button setting and each “G” button setting inside of that for a total of 18 different settings.

Clocking on the gear icon brings you to the settings page. The General tab is the same regardless of which product you have installed. In fact this image looks the same as the General tab image from my G19s review.

The next tab(s) are product specific. This one happens to say G710+ because that’s what’s connected. This tab will list firmware options and device-specific options, if there is any.

The profile tab is also the same regardless of what device is connected. This allows you to set a default profile and a persistent profile as well as options for profile cycling.

Here we can see the full keyboard lit at its maximum brightness. The LED’s are white which is a welcome change from blue.

Here we have a close-up of just the WSAD keys lit up with the rest of the board blacked out. This is a neat option for those who want some backlighting but don’t want the entire board lit up.

Here we have the opposite – the WSAD keys are blacked out with the rest of the board at full brightness. Pretty neat.

Let’s wrap up this review with some final thoughts.
