G19 vs. G510

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Well, I've been offered 50% off any keyboard from Logitech, and I can't decide between the two.

Logitech G19 for $74.99

or

Logitech 510 for $44.99

What do you guys think? I'm coming from a G15 rev1 by the way.

I thought the g15 replaced the g510?

I have the 510 it is cheaper, I did not need the color lcd as I just use it to monitor temps. I think the g19 also requires a seperated power plug in addition to usb.

I just picked up a G19. For full price frown.gif

I really like it, the screen looks awesome, and I like the ability to do more with it.

To be honest though, I'm not entirely sure if it works yet. Twice now the keys have gone un-responsive, requiring a re-start. I blame the software though.

I read it was from being on X58, so hopefully you wouldn't have the same problem.

I like the keyboard enough to keep with it though, I have warranty if it goes bad or annoys me too much.

If you are saving that much money, I'd get the expensive one.

Even for $70 there are better choices with mech keyboards, I'd go for the cheaper logitech.

G510 replaced the G15
I use the LCD for temps as well, couldn't live without it!
Power plug? That sucks. G510 it is!

I own a g510. One of the best keyboards I've ever owned (I think I've gone through like... 10 or so). G19's screen seems nice, but I doubt I'd ever use it anyways.

G110. Oh, darn, I'm too late! The G510 has no USB ports. The g110 doesn't have an LCD, but I used to have a G15, and realized I never really looked at the LCD much. I set up stuff on it, but never really paid much attention to it.

I love my G110. It was a perfect replacement.

This.


There is absolutely zero need to pay above 20 dollars for a keyboard that feels just like a 10 dollar dell keyboard anyways.

I actually need the backlit keys, macros, and LCD screen (believe it or not) tongue.gif
The LCD screen wastes a lot less electricity than a second monitor, and tells me everything I need to know anyway.
No need for a mechanical keyboard when all I'm doing is pressing WASD. tongue.gif
