Summary: I recently bought the previous version of this as new gear is rather delayed in SA, I really enjoy the LCD screen and use it for overclocking as it can show temps and speeds while in games or benchmarks. My concerns of which i am struggling to overlook are the fact that the high adjusters are tiny and barley provide any angle, on top of this the weight of the keyboard is not even and it makes one side very heavy and the other extremely light, The only reason this is a...
Summary: The keys are slightly off so typing errors abound for me. This is a gaming keyboard but, come on, even gamers type messages. The key-binding works very well and is easy to use. The addition of the headphone and mic jacks on the keyboard are a wonderful convenience. The back-lighting, in my opinion should be lighter. It is still difficult for me to use this keyboard in a dimly lit room, especially with the keyboard layout slightly off.
Summary: The keyboard is a typical non mechanical Logitech board. The problem I had, was the blue coating was peeling off and the volume controls do not work. I don't typically use the volume control so no big deal and I am sure I am just unlucky with the blue coating peeling. Not worth going without a keyboard or buying a temporary replacement to send it back. Otherwise it feels just like my old G11 that died. The LCD screen displays my in game framerate with EVGA precision.
Summary: I like a lot of the features this keyboard has, like the back-lit keys and the programmable keys. I'd been looking for a keyboard with dedicated audio controls too, and this one had it! I wish I had read a little more reviews about it, though, because the space bar is a strange, overly-sensitive thing. If I type too quickly, press the keys too lightly, I can end up with unwanted double spaces or no spaces at all.
Summary: I really wanted to like this keyboard. I'd used a G15 for many years and loved it, so this was the next progression. What I loved: The headset jacks The Volume roller Software What I hated The keys. I'm not a mechanical fanatic or anything, I just need them to work. These keys work great for typing, but you have to press fairly hard for a sustained instruction. So, typing was perfect but walking in a game? Push hard or you'll just get a tap in.
Inferior to the Original G510 in More Ways Than One
13 September 2013
Summary: I had the old G510 and one of the legs broke. Instead of sending me a replacement leg, Logitech offered to replace my entire keyboard with a brand new G510s. That was pretty cool of them. However, if I had known, I think I would've kept my old keyboard. This new one doesn't feel as responsive to key presses. The keys feel a bit mushy and require a full depression of the buttons for the key to register. The "D" key feels especially weak on mine.
Summary: I love Logitech products, from mice to keyboards to speakers to webcams. I wanted to love the new G510s too--I really did--since my previous gaming keyboard is the original Logitech G15 (with the flip up LCD screen). However, this new G510s has issues that make it a big disappointment from a gamer's perspective. Maybe I got a lemon, I don't know, but I found many of the keys unresponsive, needing a second or third tap to work.
Summary: This is a nice keyboard but it does have some issues that can be very frustrating at times. The biggest issue I have noticed is that it takes far more force than should be necessary to get some of the keys to register that it has been pressed. Also the space key can sometimes not register if not pressed near the center.
Summary: My first one (not bought through Amazon, BTW) developed issues out of the box: long spacebar press not recognized (needed in FarCry 3) and sticky keys (L CNTRL, W, S) which pretty much made any FPS play problematic. I opened a ticket with Logitech and after seven weeks of jumping through their hoops, Logitech sent me a new one. This one also had sticky keys (only L CNTRL and W, not S this time)and the long spacebar press not being recognized in FarCry 3.
