3 out of 5 eggsStill a great mmo keyboard

Pros: 3 banks of 18 "G" keys, need I say more? A huge volume control near your right thumb--perfectly placed and just the right size and configuration.

There's a lot to like about this keyboard. I've always liked the lcd screens on the Logitech "G" series. They are extremely useful in many ways--much more so than the attempt to replace them with your Apple iPhone.

If you are replacing an older 18 key "G" series keyboard, there is no need to redo all your profiles, this keyboard accepts them all. That was a huge relief.

Cons: Not mechanical. Isn't every decent gaming keyboard mechanical these days? If not, they should be. The lcd is at too horizontal an angle, at least for me. If you slouch at all, or you are shorter, the bottom of the screen is cut off by the screen's border. The old G15 adjustable angle screen was better than this.

The headphone and mic plugins that replaced the old USB hub on the old G15 are a nice idea, but the usb audio device is very poor quality, with just a bare minimum of configuration options. There is no way they can replace the audio plugins on your computer, or laptop.

A nice powered usb hub with a couple of ports would have been perfect, and even nothing at all would have been ok, because that audio device, and as a consequence, those audio jacks, are a complete waste. All they do is make the keyboard unnecessarily more expensive.

Other Thoughts: It's still one of the best mmo keyboards available, especially if your other input peripherals are Logitech, because they are all integrated into the same Logitech Gaming Software.

4 out of 5 eggsLove this item...

Pros: -It functions as a regular keyboard if your system can't support the added features (IE: you can plug it into a PS3 and it'll work.)

-Added "scripting" for profiles allows you to make your keyboard light up and perform in various ways limited only by the scripts allowed, and the ideas you can come up with. uses LUA programming language.

-Keyboard has multiple profile buttons and 18 g-keys to allow for a possible 54 quick functions. however you're not limited to 54 keys, if you know how to program them (meaning {g10 down}{g11 down}{g10 up}{g11 up} could do something different than {g11 down}{g10 down}{g11 up}{g10 up} if you program it right)

-has a few cool LCD apps (World of warcraft built in, curse client, media player etc) however programability of this is limited.

-the colors are amazing, allowing almost any color you can think of as a backlight for your gaming (whole keyboard colors, not individual key coloring)

-media keys and volume wheel.

-Headphone/microphone jacks above keyboard with individual mute keys per.

-toggle switch for disable windows key

-on the fly macro creation

-removable extended palm support rest for comfort

Cons: -removed "io" and "os" functions in scripting

Other Thoughts: I would like to see some kind of support for external programs to trigger events in the keyboard besides the built in current exe running. I'd like to be able to have an addon on World of Warcraft send a command to my keyboard to show "player x is low on health, heal them" on the LCD screen.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat Design, Poor Construction

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 been mushy with no click since I first received the keyboard, but I was afraid to make an RMA claim fearing that the replacement would be worse than the replacement that it was replacing! I expect more from a $120 (I see now that the price has dropped by almost half!) keyboard. I am very disappointed in Logitech. No sooner do they get their software fixed after years of struggling with it, than they start forgetting about the quality of the hardware. I was prepared this time, and purchased an extended warranty. But, when it expires, and the next copy dies, I will have no choice but to look for another company to buy my peripherals from. (The Logitech "gaming" mouse I purchased to go with this keyboard is dying too, and about to be sent back, still under the original warranty.) If you buy this keyboard, buy the extra protection. You will need it.

Other Thoughts: It dies just days after the warranty, every time.

4 out of 5 eggs

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 yourself needing extra buttons or wanting to simplify complex commands for common actions in your games, this is the tool for the job.

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.

Other Thoughts: 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. The lack of USB ports necessitated my buying of a USB hub to keep on my desk, as I'd grown used to having them on the G11 which is why I took the egg off. Overall, I'd rather have my G11 back, but this was what's available. Really, if it just had the USB ports I wouldn't care one way or the other about the LCD.

3 out of 5 eggsDigitally stuck keys

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," which continues on if you allow it. This is recurrent across different keys, and the different computers I have tested this on. Firmware is updated on all components, including the keyboard.

It's annoying when typing, and it sucks to keep running when you expected your character to stop just short of a cliff. My password inputs have been messed up a few times as well, but at least the board works for the most part.

Other Thoughts: 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.

1 out of 5 eggsIt sort of works

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 commands with a mouse drag) and once again Logitech FAILED on this very important aspect.

I would give this a negative egg if possible.

5 out of 5 eggsSuccesor to legendary G15

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.

Cons: Not mechanical but I dont mind.

Other Thoughts: Overall even better then G15 because you can change the color of the screen and illumination to what you want.

3 out of 5 eggsdid not live up to my expectations

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 they travel. I waited a month to write this review because i wanted to see if they just needed to break in. i am thankful that there is a little bit of one. currently the keyboard is usable, as if came out of the box i would have taken the hit on shipping and restocking fee just to get something else. i dont know whether logitech's higher end offerings (ie. the G19) have this issue as well but at this point i am beginning to look at competitors products. in addition, the rear flip out stands on the keyboard need to be longer. this is even a common complaint i have seen in a lot of reviews. also, why 18 G-keys? its the only one in the lineup with them. it seems a bit unnecessary.

3 out of 5 eggsSticky Space Bar

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.

Other Thoughts: 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.

1 out of 5 eggsPoorest Quality Ever

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!
