Summary: It dies just days after the warranty, every time.
Pros: -The best positioned, and highest number of dedicated programmable keys of any keyboard I know of -4 line LCD display with some useful apps -Nice colors
Cons: I purchased this keyboard just over a year ago. And just like all the other 3 or 4 versions of this keyboard that I have owned, after a about a year, just after the warranty expires, the main connection wire starts to decompose, and although, for a while, you can still jiggle it a bit, and tape it down to one side or the other to get it to work for a while longer, in a few more days the keyboard becomes completely unusable, and must be replaced. Also, the F key has be...
Summary: I mostly play LoL, DC Universe Online, WoW, Diablo III, as far as games that I need a lot of functionality for. I also have Premiere and Photoshop shortcuts programmed into it for those programs. Overall this is a good keyboard if you're a keyboard and mouse player and need extra buttons to program macros into. The LCD display is mostly useless and could have been omitted.
Pros: Fast, and responsive. Logitech's usual quality, of course. The ability to change the lights' colors is a nice little feature. I've never had a bad project from Logitech, and this one is no different. The macro keys function well and are a life saver. I bought this to replace my G11 which finally died after a decade of faithful service. It pretty much does everything I want it to. The game mode switch is wonderful for disabling those pesky Windows Keys. If you find you...
Cons: Don't care for the LCD readout, very rarely works automatically. The profiles don't always switch automatically as they should. No USB ports built in, the G11 had two. The lifters don't raise it very high at all, I actually bought a stand to prop it up to where I like it. But that's a personal nitpick.
Summary: I'll either deal with the inconvenience, or get a replacement keyboard. I hope the next one isn't a bit of a lemon as well.
Pros: The backlighting, although a little dimmer than I would have liked, is great when playing in the dark. The display at the top of the keyboard is great when paired with monitoring software, I can keep an eye on system temperatures, GPU usage, FPS, and more. Keys feel nice and responsive when they work, except under select circumstances, which will be covered below.
Cons: On occasion, the keys become stuck, not physically, but digitally. This happens most noticeably when playing games or writing papers, after a quick succession of different keystrokes; a key returns to its raised position, but the input remains continuous until an additional key is pressed. I've let it go for a bit to see if it resolves, but obviously that is not the case. It turns an input of "d" into a stream of "ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd,...
Pros: Simple design and macro keys are layed out well. The no frills center screen is just enough to let users know whats going without being a distraction.
Cons: If you need to hit the ESC key to get to your CMOS settings at boot up, you are going to need a different keyboard. I find this beyond annoying and considering this is a keyboard for games, Logitech KNOWS BETTER but opted to go cheap on this one. The macro software *looks* attractive but once you start using it, you begin to realize how clunky and poorly thought out it is. It does not behave like a typical windows application (no copy no paste no re positioning of com...
Summary: Overall even better then G15 because you can change the color of the screen and illumination to what you want.
Pros: If you had a G15 years ago you will love this. Keys respond perfectly, illuminated for the dark nights, has 18 macro buttons if you have any need for them. And the main reason I like these keyboards is due to little LCD screen, you can monitor resource usage with it in real time, everything, time, RSS feeds. And many applications will have plugins to work with this screen.
Pros: great aesthetic design. custom back lighting. i like the screen information display.
Cons: i have owned a LOT of Logitech keyboard and mouse products. the keyboard i am coming from was the original G15 which is not like 8+ years old. it still works but i wanted something with custom back lighting. when i compare the actual keys on this keyboard to my 8 year old G15 i just get upset. the keys on the g510 are nowhere near as good as i have become used to. unless you press them exactly in the middle and straight down there is a LOT of excess friction while the...
Summary: Not sure if I would have purchased this if I didnt need a keyboard right away. But it works the way I like and has just enough functions to make me happy.
Pros: Works as advertised, Color change backlit is nice, no problems with software.
Cons: Needed a new keyboard quickly, old keyboard(Logitech G15 8+ years old) was starting to lose functionality in some keys. Picked up this one in a pinch. Space bar would stick in the bottom position and would not lift back up. Attempted to remove key and see what the issue was. Couldnt find the problem, switched the plastic key with old keyboard's space bar, now it works perfectly. Old Space Bar, New Keyboard. At least Logitech's parts are interchangeable.
Pros: This keyboard is JUST what I needed. Minus the audio jacks and the LCD display, this keyboard is perfect. Literally there is nothing wrong with this keyboard.
Cons: Except that this is the poorest quality junk I have ever purchased. It has only been 10 months since I purchased this keyboard and it has now been dying on me. Off and on, off and on, it won't stop turning off and on when I move it. When the backlights are on this thing overheats bad. Sort of near the window keys and stuff. This makes 4/4 for Logitech. Everything I have ever bought from them has broken. Well no more!
Pros: Nice size, Large keys, Lights Up, Love the little LCD screen with the custom info.
Cons: Not always easy to see the keys even in the dark because the tone of the light makes it hard to make out what key is what. Also you can't have different color keys at once. They are all green, or all red, ect.
Summary: In terms of features and functionality, this is one of the best keyboards you can have. If you can shrug off the aesthetic problems that I mentioned in the cons, this can definitely be a strong candidate as your next gaming keyboard. However, this keyboard uses membrane keys, and for the roughly 6 months I've used this keyboard, the keys felt terrible, mushy, and squeaky if the keypress was not perfectly angled.
Pros: -Cheap, if you can get it for a deal -Huge bank of macro keys for MMO gaming/productivity -Large, comfortable wrist rest -RGB backlighting -Versatile LED
Cons: -Not mechanical -Expensive if not purchased during a discount -Membrane keys deteriorate in quality over time -Screen is prone to scratches -Glossy surface can look messy easily -Backlight can be brighter
