G19 vs. G510 - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Thread Starter 
I ended up getting the G510, but for $59.99, since the coupon code doesn't apply to sale prices.
I actually have another 50% off code though. I'm liking this keyboard, but the screenshot Ishinomori posted is making me want to sell this G510 and grab a G19. tongue.gif
Should I sell my G510 for $100 (I have an offer) and pick up a G19 for $99.99?
Decisions... decisions...

That was my keyboard LCD screenshot. lol
Getting the G19 for the same price is a no brainer.
By the way... Don't use Logitech's current software v.7.00.291. It's buggy and causes crashes. Use the legacy software v.3.06 which I have no problems with.
Also, everyone that is freaking out that you have to also plug this board into an outlet. It's for the lighting so you don't draw off of the usb ports.

Has Logitech gotten any better as far as replacement parts go? I've been through two v1 G15s and the first thing to always break is those flip-up feet, which Logitech persistently refused to sell replacements of (in fact asking people to send entire keyboards back just for a removable part to be replaced).

I'm in the market for a new keyboard now, the G510 and G19 both look really good, but I don't want to spend $100+ if I can count on my keyboard eventually becoming crippled and receiving no support for it.

I have a G510 and I have to say I love it. I find the LCD screen on the G510 to have it's uses, like for browsing I have the clock set on it, and playing games I use the performance monitor. I also have the RSS feeds set up so I can see feeds about the news and local weather.

The keys in my opinion are nice to type on and are not too loud.

Yeah, I've always liked the build quality and functionality of the G Series, I'm just frequently frustrated with Logitech support, mostly related to the lack of replacement parts offered and apparent inability to use the media keys for any version of iTunes after 8. I just don't want to spend the price for a new board if they'll be shrugging their shoulders at me when another one of the apparently-made-of-glass feet snaps off of a new keyboard.

Seriously you don't need to have your temps up 24/7, once you get a sense for what your temps are they are not going to change much from day to day.

When I'm monitoring temp I have coretemp on my second monitor and once I get the info I need I turn the monitor OFF.

There are options for back lighting with mech keyboards that are actually cheaper than a G19, buy a large margin I might add also. Though a desk lamp is far more practical, you shouldn't be using a computer in the dark anyways. It will ruin your eyes.
