Logitech 920-002530 Customer Reviews
MUST HAVE! Even non-gamers will love this!
I have about 5 different keyboards, each have completely different setups. This is my most favorite keyboard so far!! First of all, you just need to plug it in and it will work. Then a quick stop at Logitech, and 3 minutes later, i am registered and messing with the programming! I am completely amazed! I never had lit keys, but this lets you pick any color from a color wheel and any shade! The LCD screen was also amazing. It has a countdown/stop watch,CPU/Ram Usage, Time date, and even news! I am sure you can get more applets. Coolest of all, it scans your computer for compatible games that they have pre-programmed setups! I also went in and added several games i own, tat aren't installed!! So far i love it, the keys are nice. Volume wheel, game mode, three banks of 18 "G" keys and many other cool features! I mainly play RPG and FPS's, this board has such a great setup, i don't know how i ever played without it!! The only thing is, the G keys make it wider, so its weird to put my left hand down, cause it always goes for the edge of the board! I was planning on getting something different but wanted 18 months, and this is the coolest bestbuy has to offer. I was gona get a SHIFT board, so that i could put my zboard keys like BF2 in it. I am not sure if these buttons have good sensitivity, or better pressure sensitivity. I would think they would make the WASD keys more accurate(and other highly used keys). Besides for a few perks i don't know if this keyboard actually gives you an edge while playing? I mean the G keys are obviously great, but i don't know what they are good for in a FPS. Even in a MMO, they seem like just nice short cuts. The only problem i am having is the SPACE bar?? I can push it all the way down and it doesn't "space". Yeah if you push space right below the C button, it doesn't space, which is bad cause i am a left thumb space pusher!

BEST KEYBOARD EVER
i bought this keyboard about 3 weeks ago, and i have no regrets at all.the driver it comes with is out of date but you can download the newest drivers from logitech's website. the keys feel great and i love how i can change the backlight to any color.the gaming panal is really neat, it can show lots of things such as: time,current events,cpu/ram usage,windows media player, stopwhach/countdown, and in game stats. i must say that logitech makes their things with care and if they were to make a computer, i would buy it!

very satisfied with this product
i purchased this keyboard as a placeholder for a different keyboard. im keeping this one. eff the other one. This keyboard is probably the best for its price. rgb led means a full color spectrum of backlight color options. very comfortable wrist rest, which is very easy to put on and take off. the lcd is a very awesome addition. media controls are superb. go ahead and buy this keyboard. both you and best buy will be happy ;D

I upgraded from the G15 to the G510. Because I already had Logitech's latest software installed, this was absolutely Plug-N-Play. All my previous macros were mapped to the M1 G1 - G6 keys on the G510 automatically. The only thing I did was change the default key backlighting for M1, M2, and M3.

Another Excellent Board by Logitech
I had the G15 Version 2 before this G510. I gotta say its a way nicer board than some of the pickier reveiwers have made it out to be. The customizable backlighting is awesome.. so many colors to choose from. recordable macros, USB integrated audio works flawlessly. The feel of the keyboard is amazing. I cant say enough good things about it. Definately a good choice over the more expensive G19 which only has a color LCD that jumped the price twice what this one is.

awesome keyboard, not too many flaws
this is a really great keyboard, sturdy, hepful, and it looks awesome. it has backlit keys, and an LCD display, as well as a built in sound-card, headphone and microphone jack, media controls, programmable Gkeys, and 3 modes for presets. the colors can be whatever you want them to be, and you can save a color and key scheme to each of the 3 modes. i only have 2 problems with the entire thing, and those are that because of the 18 programmable G-keys, the shift, caps lock, and tab are slightly smaller, which isnt such a big deal, but where i ran into issues the firs time was when i had to get used to the location of the keys. it is hard to get used to everything being moved over (from a standard keyboard) and once you do, it is hard to go back.also, with the colors, i found that colors like blue (just as an example) can make the letters appear slightly blurred., although it looks the coolest in my opinion. red and green are the best i think, although you can make them whatever color you want

I purchased this board on 10/7/10 and was switching from a Ideazon Z Board Merc Stealth. I found the board to be quite nice in the keys and there are a ton of them to use for macro's. I really liked the board but the key placement was a bit odd for me. Not sure where that was coming from, almost felt off center. The space bar is a bit small for my taste. I played WoW with it the first day I had it and it just felt very uncomfortable for me. My Zboard has the game pad off to the left and all my hot keys and other stuff is all right there at my finger tips. If Logitech could take the game pad from my board, slap it on theirs along with those macro keys. That would make one awesome board. I also had some issues with the software and it was the updated version. I could not access the key profiler to do macros. Had to re boot my computer 3 times before I could. Not sure why that was but it was annoying to deal with. A bit more instruction on the use would be nice as well. All in all this is a good board I just find having all my gaming buttons located in one small space like on my board more convienient and organized.

Better than the ragged G15v1 it replaced, *but*...
I just bought this keyboard tonight, after a long time of waiting for Best Buy to SKU it up so I could use a 50 dollar giftcard I'd had for a year and a half. But that's beside the point - down to the pros and cons of what makes this keyboard "better" than the G15v1. USB Audio: Pros - sounds much nicer than my laptop's built-in audio, which is nice, and what I wanted. Cons - being USB, it snacks on about 5-20% (maybe more if your CPU is older) of your CPU depending on what it needs. Furthermore, any time you plug in or unplug a device to it, the keyboard resets and you have to wait for it to resync. This is extremely annoying. Backlighting: Pros - the color opportunities are endless. Cons - the lighting *is* dimmer than the G15v1 (though bright enough to see in a dark room), and it's not very clear on how to change the color from the default (protip: key profiler, then click the empty white spaces next to the 'M-key' buttons). There is no way (at least at this time) to make the backlighting brighter. LCD: Pros: much crisper than the G15v1. Cons: much smaller than the G15v1's, and unless you're staring directly down at the keyboard, the very bottom of the display might be too low for you to see correctly. The "fixed" display might be more solid than the v1's, but you lose the means to adjust it. Keys: Pros: If you're going from a G15v1 to the G510, your fingers won't have any "adjustment" problems - the dimensions are perfect. FYI: Going from a non-G15 to this board, be prepared to typo quite a bit (12-36 hours) until your fingers/brain get used to the new key placement. Cons: I didn't think it was possible, but they actually made the keypress feeling *softer* than the G15v1. So if you love an audible mechanical "clack," you're not going to be a fan of this board. The membrane is *pillow* soft. Misc: - I like the new volume wheel even if it's a tiny bit tempermental. - If you do use the USB audio, you can readily mute the audio/mic with the push of a button. - Adjustable backlighting keyed to the M-keys so you know which macro set you're using. Last thing I'll say is the version of the GamePanel software I got in the box was 3.04/3.05. 3.06 is up on Logitech's website, and there you can be sure you get the 32 or 64 bit version - I don't know if the CD gives you the choice.
