I've got the G510, which I think is the baby G19 if I'm not mistaken. I will admit it took me a while to get used to the keypress of the board after switching from my old gear. But once I got used to the way it works, I can't say that the board itself is bad.
In my case the keyboard does respond when pressed with no issues relating to missed keys. In fact I would happily admit that most of the errors I get when using mine is that I'm not 100% used to the spacing of the keys due to the extra G keys on the left hand side of the board.
But the actual switch itself while not mechanical, is not bad by any means. Put it this way, I've had worse. Much worse!
Although I will concede that the G series keyboards are actually on the high side in terms of pricing, and I think that if you can get them on sale great, go for it. But I wouldn't feel the same way if I had paid full price for the board.
For a non mechanical keyboard actually I can also recommend Microsoft's X4, that is a pretty nice keyboard. Shame it doesn't come with blue back lighting.
Oh and add before I forget why I even bothered to reply to this thread in the first place, notably bad keyboards that I've found are those "flexiboards", the novelty roll up keyboards. But I'm guessing no serious PC user will be using one of those as a long term keyboard.
I don't like the Microsoft k600, I have this keyboard at work, while it is very quiet to type on and the shallow keypress is reminiscent of the older Comfort Curve 2000 keyboard (an amazing keyboard if you were wondering) the actual usage of the board is ruined because it has been made so small my hands are very cramped and the F keys at the top are made of a harder plastic which is quite a pain to press.Edited by 5nak3 - 1/18/12 at 2:44pm
