The Logitech G510 comes well packaged in a double cardboard box (an outer thin decorative one and an inner corrugated strong one), and is protected from the ravishes of shipping.
The Keyboard is very easy to install. Just unpack it, plug it into an available USB socket and Windows will recognize it on it's own. Then run the enclosed drivers disc and follow the instructions. This will get you access to the programmable keys driver and the LCD Manager driver. At the time of writing there is an update for the drivers available from Logitech's website.
The keyboard has a solid sturdy feel, the LED backlighting is about right and can be switched on or off and the colour can be changed. The keys have a nice tactile response which suites both the gamer and the touch typist. There are 18 programmable G keys and 3 settings on each via the M keys, and this can be done directly on the keyboard via the MR key. There is also a switch to turn on/off the Windows keys during gaming. Media control is supplied via 4 play controls, a mute button and a volume wheel. Sockets are provided that enable the keyboard to function as a USB sound card and output to headphones and input via a microphone. These can be independently muted by using the appropriate keys. Finally the LCD display has 5 control keys to switch between Applets and control the features within them.
Ease of use
The keyboard has a nice feel to it. The key travel is soft but with enough give to feel more like a mechanical keyboard. My wife is a touch typist and she had no trouble using it at all, I use it for gaming etc, and have also found it perfect.Read more ›
Typing on it is dream the lcd is so helpfull it damm near makes the coffee. Only gripe is just one the bloody caps lock key keeps getting in the way. I wish they would move it or have an option to switch it off. Other than that well worth the money and the 5 star rating so for all you gamers out there ditch the crappy argos keyboard and get this from amazon asap.
Do not expect the back-light to be as bright as the pictures. The latest version of the Logitech gaming software does increase the brightness by maybe 20% which has helped quite a lot. It is a lot more usable now.
Not quite large enough for me. I think this is more to do with being old and failing eyesight!
Poor utils for the LCD
I expected a lot more LCD applets as standard. The fix for this was to use the fantastic [...] You will then be able to display absolutely anything to do with the hardware in your system. I think Logitech is missing an opportunity here as this ramps this keyboards desirability up by many times. There are also 3rd part resource to go to.
Now I have AIDA and the latest Logitech installed I am very happy. They keyboard feels reassuringly sturdy. They volume control is very nice. I love the fact that I can use a white light for normal use, blue/green for driving games and blood red for Diablo/shooters. As the colours are linked to game profiles all the backlight change and G key mapping can be done automatically when you launch the game. Very useful.
All in all, very happy.
Delivery was super quick and I ripped off the wrapping like a kid at Christmas. I plugged it into my pc and went all girly over the different colour options. I went to the profiles to begin to set up my WoW macros when to my delight I discovered that it was happy with the data files from the G15 so I didn't have to do anything except get online and start playing!
Another thing which is worth mentioning. If you are an altoholic like me then you will be delighted to know that the M1/2/3 settings can be different colours. My hunter is purple backlights, druid green and warlock red. It reduces those blonde moments when you try to use a hunters macro for a druid :)
5 stars isn't really enough for this keyboard. If it lasts anything like my old one then every penny is worth it. Coke and other drinks however are now banned from the desk.
The programmable keys are great, there's plenty of them and you can make them do pretty much whatever you like. The macro-generation facility is also very handy indeed. One key press and I can open several different things and start a whole sequence of events. Media controls also work fine but I do find the lack of an associated on-screen display a bit annoying. I got used to that with the wireless keyboard and wish it were still here.
Colour of back lighting is totally configurable but you only get three saved presets. Not much of a hassle though.
And as a fast typist I find it easy to use although it feels a bit spongy where I prefer a more clicky keyboard. My own Das Keyboard in work is much better in this regard. At least it's not one of those bloody awful laptop inspired keyboards. One thing that catches me out is the config keys on the left are where I usually reach for shift and control when I'm not looking so I have to watch where I'm putting my left hand. I'll get used to it. They keyboard is a bit too flat for my personal taste. I don't get this trend to flat keyboards, it's like typing on a desk. I reckon that's just us being told what to like because the laptop style keyboards are much, much cheaper to make, therefore flat is good in the marketing material. I don't like them but anyway. Overall a good keyboard. I'd have another one when this one dies but wish the app community and the manufacturer had put more thought into handy apps for the keyboard display.
