Pros: Backlit, LCD Screen, Comfortable to type on, macro keys, LCD apps

Cons: Backlight too dim on keys, hard to get the LCD app to default to clock on boot.

I purchased this keyboard for AU$100 months back. I am pretty happy with my purchase of this Logitech G510 keyboard. I find this keyboard very comfortable to type on and find the key travel is very smooth. The roller volume control is very smooth and I find the headphone/microphone jack very handy as well as their respective mute buttons, however I don't like how the keyboard disconnects and reconnects itself everytime you plug or unplug the jacks.

Plenty of reviews all over complain about the dull backlight on the keys. I agree with this, they could be brighter. You wouldn't want the backlight to be too bright however.

Also, one last thing, I wish the keyboard status indicator LEDs were red instead of yellow, that would have been a nice touch, however the yellow certainly makes it better than the green LEDs you get on many keyboards.

I recommend this keyboard! thumb.gif

Pros: Volume scroll on the top. Back light + Macro keys.

Cons: The backlight is not bright and the keys feel cheap.

I bought this keyboard because I got it on sale at Logitech dented box program. Keyboard was brand new, the box was not even dented...and I got a good deal!

The keyboard comes with a lot of macro keys! Almost too much. There's 18 of them while I usually use 2-4 at most.

The backlight is nice. You can change it to whatever color you want on the spectrum. However, I am disappointed that it is not brighter than it is. During the day, you can't see the difference. While at night, you can only notice it if you change it to the brightest color (white). All other colors are difficult to see. And I do have perfect vision and am not color blind!

My favorite aspect about this keyboard is the volume scrollbar on the top right. I can quickly change the volume on the fly on the keyboard without having to touch anything on the desktop. This works great in games and even when I'm just playing my music without turning on my monitor. Again, I LOVE the master volume scroll bar.

The overall feel of the keyboard doesn't feel that good. I know this isn't a mechanical keyboard, but I was hoping the keys would provide more of a click. The keys feel heavy; I have to provide quite a bit of force to activate the key. But with the increase required force, I am not rewarded with a click. Instead, it feels like I'm typing on a soggy patch of dirt. Hard to press keys, no click, feels a bit cheap.

So overall, I do like the keyboard. For the price I paid, I feel I got my moneys worth. Had I paid $100+, I would definitely demand a brighter back-light and a more tactile keyboard response.
