Page 5 - Logitech G510 Gaming Keyboard
If you want the best gaming performance, it's time to gear up. Today we're taking the best gaming keyboards on the market and putting them through their paces for you.
Logitech G510 Gaming Keyboard
At first glance, the Logitech G510 looks just like the high-end G19 keyboard, except with a smaller LCD screen. It’s not the case, however, the G510 is a much better buy overall. Though the external design looks the same, the keyboard has a very different feel to it. The G510’s key press, though it does have the same deep travel as the G19, has a much softer feel to it. This makes it seem like you don’t need as much effort to bash in a key. The spacebar is also hair trigger, so a jump is just a brush of the thumb. The G510 also rocks more macro buttons than the G19.
There’s 18 buttons on the left hand side of the keyboard in three groups of six, fully programmable, macro compatible with an on-board storage memory. There’s also the Logitech media keys, Windows button disable toggle and customisable backlighting. A big plus is the integrated USB audio, so you can connect with a single cable and get high quality sound direct from your keyboard.
Overall, if you’re in the Logitech camp, we prefer the G510: the look and feel is very similar, the key features are there (the extra keys, LCD info panel and audio) and it’s half the price.Available from Logitech, retailing for $199.APC rating: 8/10
