"Great mechanical keyboard"

Great keystroke feel, lots of key colour configuration options and stylish to boot.

"Bright lights"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Great keyboard with the deep dish keys that us old touch typers love. My Bearded Dragons love the changing colours and watch it for hours. Nice to see the letters and numbers in dim lighting.

"Win10 updates don't play nice with this kb"
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

So, my keyboard stopped working in less than a year. Regularly Win10 patches will mess up Logitech products from working, and there isn't really much of a solution. This has happened multiple times, with the last time leaving the keyboard unable to be registered in GHub or via downloaded drivers, despite rolling back Windows.

Aside from that the build quality is meh. The kb is NOT quiet – if you stream then expect it to dominate your audio, even if you try and use NVidia's noise reduction AI on it. Some of the keys already started double typing in under a year of use – particularly the WASD keys.

You also can't modify the lighting, without using Ghub, which doesn't recognise this keyboard currently.

All in all, I'd probably avoid.


G512 is a high performance RGB mechanical gaming keyboard that features advanced technologies in a modern and sleek design. G512 includes full spectrum ~16.8M color RGB per key lighting with LIGHTSYNC technology, choice of mechanical switches, and a USB passthrough. G512 is the perfect blend of performance, advanced technologies and features, and unparalleled build quality.
