Digitally stuck keys

Stefan J., Newegg
26 February 2015
  • 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,...

did not live up to my expectations

Carmela M., Newegg
17 December 2014
  • 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...

Sticky Space Bar

Kyle G., Newegg
9 December 2014
  • 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.

Good so far, but..

Shannon L., Newegg
23 January 2014
  • Summary: I do really like it but it looks like I might have to RMA mine because of the space bar.
  • Pros: I'm liking it a lot so far, the 16 million color backlight is amazing and the LCD screen is great.
  • Cons: Right out of the box the space bar is occasionally double-pressing(as it just did). Hopefully it's just a matter of breaking it in but I've got a bad feeling about it. In fact I just had to knock it down from 4 stars to 3 because it's happened so often just while writing this review.

Gimmicky

Kevin M., Newegg
21 November 2013
  • Summary: I RMA'd it. Cost me some loot but I don't what this thing collecting dust and trying to get rid of it on auction site. I went with the Logitech G710 instead with the Cherry MX - Brown switches seems a lot less like a toy. This keyboard with it's ridiculous screen and trying to get Apps to even make it work were also going to cost me money, the good ones. I still have faith in Logitech. Good luck trying to get one of the mechanical keyboards for under $100.
  • Pros: I got a new keyboard from my "kick-a**" not being sarcastic. Dell 2004 stock keyboard. I wanted to see how the technology of keyboards could help me improve my game. Good news was I ordered the black they sent me the blue if that helps you. It was shiny. Was on sale. Has a ton of Marco keys. This would be great for a WoW player.
  • Cons: Firstly the keys do not light up as bright as expected. I watched a ton of videos to get a good feel for that was in store when I bought the item. The keys are very unresponsive for a "gaming" keyboard. My 2004 Dell stock membrane keyboard has more response. Hence why I was upgrading. Another factor for my return and a large part is the legs in the back of the keyboard do not elevate the slant for comfortable typing. The keyboard seemed sort of "gimmicky" and cheaply ...

I am very uncertain about this purchase now...

Stephen B., Newegg
17 November 2013
  • Pros: Its a stellar keyboard, really is. LED control, on off, custom keys, LCD panel. All is great
  • Cons: Not even 3 days into use, the keyboard spacebar is acting up already. This is the one repetitive negative I saw in the reviews and turns out they were right.....

Great ideas, great feel, so-so durability

lucyssky, Ebay
26 October 2013
  • Summary: Fairly good gaming keyboard and useful for other serious computer users. Tons of macros and options for customization. Some settings are limited to the point of bring slightly disappointing. Very cool look and smooth feel, keys are spaced nicely and the back light is awesome with fully customizable color and intensity.

Disappointed

John T., Newegg
27 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this mainly to tell what random BG I would get in WoW, but this function no longer works. I use a MMO mouse and gamepad, so I really don't use the keyboard for much gaming. It's a good keyboard, I just don't use it much while gaming. I'm not sending it back or anything, but I wouldn't have bought it if I knew it didn't tell random BGs (I would have gone with something cheaper).
  • Pros: Solid Keyboard. LCD is nice. Responsive keystrokes. Simple software.
  • Cons: Expensive Well built

It's alright

Ryan W., Newegg
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I'd recommend buying it but I'm just high maintenance. You also need the internet to access the "software" to edit your binds and coloring and etc.
  • Pros: It has a very nice feel to it, the keys are pretty silent. The color choice is also cool if you like the lights.
  • Cons: Wish it stood taller, feels kinda flat against the desk even with the stands up. Wish the back lighting was a bit brighter. The keys seem incredibly smaller. And the display has very limited options to choose from. And the "Lock" key on the keyboard seems incredibly flimsy which worries me.
