  • Logitech Gaming Software (LGS)

Introduction

This is a good keyboard with plenty of macro keys that can be bought for around $75-100 (depending on the month you are buying it) onAmazon. It's pretty wide (20.25'). Few keyboards have 18 macro keys. The main competitor is more expensiveCorsair Vengeance K95 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Cherry Red (CH-9000020-NA), which has the same 18 macro keys. The mechanical switches certainly are more luxurious and now is a huge fashion, but I wouldn't say they're a dramatic improvement over membrane. Modern membrane switches are good enough. Also LEDs on Corsair Vengeance K95 are going out after several months on use and you need to send it back to manufacture for fixing. So much for $150 keyboard. Moreover software is definitely weaker.

The main advantage over other Logitech keyboards is that G510s is the only one that has three column six G-keys each -- 18 macro keys total. But you can definitely combine G710+(which is around $80-$90) andLogitech G13 gamepad ($50-$60) to get the same effect (actually more macro keys -- 29) for around $140.

Please note that Logitech software (called LGS -- Logitech Gaming software) does not allow to assign macro to key combinations, like Microsoft Intellitype. This is a very important shortcoming. To partially overcome this inherent in G-key limitation of the number of macros that you can use, Logitech implemented a row of three 'register' keys (called M-keys) at the top of 'macro-pad'. Which troubles the total. But this is far from an elegant solution. More like 'Christmas-tree' type of engineering solution.

M-Keys enable you to have up to three different macro sets per profile. That's one set for each of the three M-Keys: M1, M2, and M3.

M1 is the default M-Key. Any macros you create will apply to the M1 set until and unless you select M2 or M3.

More is not always better, especially in with this register keys at the top. They would better do integrating them into wrist pad like Microsoft did with two keys onMicrosoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000, but it looks like Logitech engineers are not that inventive.

So while theoretically this number can be increased by using three 'macro register' keys to 54 (18 * 3 total) I think in reality you are essentially limited to 18 macros. Which not too big, but still more-or-less adequate number as to remember more then a dozen macro keys in not that easy anyway unless you implement some mental scheme of assigning them to the macro pad.

Still, even for 18 keys you need a map printed and put near keyboard to use as a reference (one good thing about LGS is that it allow printing of nicely formatted key map. Good job Logitech!)

In you need to overcome this limitation you actually can by using additional software or hardware.

  • You can make usage of the second and the third page more convenient (almost usable) by assigning M1, M2 and M3 keys to G-buttons of G600 mouse. That's the only palatable way to extent the number of your macros that I know.
  • My way to overcome this shortcoming is to use it simultaneously with ArsClip, which proved to be compatible with LGS. As my main usage of the keyboard is with Frontpage I also use M2 can be used for a set of macro used in a very specific situation -- for Frontpage stored search macros.
  • Sell G510s and buy G13 keypad which you can use with Microsoft keyboards or other vendor better designed keyboards, such as Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 or, now discontinued, but good Microsoft Sidewinder.

The model G510s is a minor upgrade of G510 (Logitech Forums)

Re: What is difference between G510 and G510s Keyboards?
A new paintjob, mostly. some kind of 'hydrophobic' coating to help people with sweaty palms. And the arrow keys and WASD keys are a different color than the other keys.

Also, it is likely that the G510s is only usable with recent versions of LGS, while the G510 can be used with much older software like LGPS 3.06 if you like (I know this is true for G700 vs G700s so it's likely to be true for G510/G510s as well).

Like in many keyboard for gaming there is a Windows-Key lock switch, allowing one to manually disable the Windows Key

Quality of lettering on the keyboard keys (with the exception of F-keys and G-keys) is very bad (probably the worst I saw on any keyboard I used to own; and I used some very cheap models likeDell SK-8135 USB Enhanced Multimedia Keyboard for years). It is much worse then on Microsoft Sidewinder. Some of them like '{', '[' are not distinguishable. But in reality this defect it does not matter much, as any IT professional who respects himself should learn blind typing. Still this is an annoying defect, Here is a relevant quote from one of Amazon reviews:

Primary reason for a 4-star rating is the key labeling. The key that gives you colon and semicolon have the exact same image (as checked with a magnifying glass) printed on the key so if you forget whether you need to use the shift key or not to get a colon, your screwed. The stencil for shifted 7 (&) looks a lot like $ and the keys that have [ ] { } look more like ( ) from normal viewing distance. Finally, the period and the coma markings are exactly the same so you'd better either know from memory which is which or be prepared for some back spacing and retyping.

The G510 backlight is dim. In a brightly lit room the backlighting is hard to see. But by changing backlight to something dark you can use this keyboard for training touch typing :-).

It has very convenient rotating dial for sound volume and thus can be used as multimedia keyboard too.

The keys are about the size of laptop keys. That is, about 1/3 smaller than normal. Initially keys feel somewhat mushy but that feeling disappears in two to tree days and click became pretty crisp.

The keyboard looks like less convenient then in Sidewinder X6, at least at the beginning. There is also the frequently mentioned problem with space key which requires harder press then usual to click. At the beginning I though that my keyboard was defective: you click the space key and nothing, absolutely nothing comes out of it.

Problem with the USB ports wakeup and G510s keyboard in Windows

The keyboard has strange and pretty annoying property of forgetting to wake up after computer (regular Dell tower with Windows 7 installed) went to sleep. and keyboard does not work (you can connect another keyboard and put password ;-). nd it is not recognized at all of the computer is crashed and got into initial 'post crash menu' where you can select normal boot or safe mode mode.

This defect also demonstrates itself if you try to 're-awake' the computer from sleep by, say, pressing Enter key on the keyboard. It awakes and shows the screen with password prompt. But attempt to type password does not produce any effect.

The problem is that it is not always wake up after sleep mode (unplugging and plugging back the keyboard fixes this but is inconvenient).

Central display

Initially I though that black and white display is for games only and is a waste of space and money for a regular user like me, but it proved to be pretty useful.

First of all it serves as prompt for macro key(MR). Also it allow you to show applets.

Left button allow you to cycle selected applets. Default that shows the profile used is OK. But I like more two clock appliances, they really makes keyboard look upscale ;-).

One is regular clock, but the second it more interesting: it can provide two countdown timers or countdown timer and a stopwatch. Two countdown timers can help you to make breaks for working on computer :-). Both are very neat and can be configured from the software even pay music when countdown reach zero.

It also can show you the current profile. If you set this option in LGS the color of display can change depending on profile you are using and that's another great feature that helps.

Logitech Gaming Software (LGS)

This is a pretty capable software with a good GUI. The major drawback is that macros can be assigned only to special G keys (unlike Microsoft Intellitype, which allows redefine regular keys).

Due to the size this part was moved to the separate page. SeeLogitech Gaming Software. The following topics are covered:

Tips

  • When you use this keyboard with G600 mouse you can switch keys M11, M2, M3 using mouse buttons which is more convenient.
  • LGS version 8.57.145 and above can measure frequency of the usage of G-buttons. After such measurement (or better several such measurements done during a week of usage) you need to move the most frequently used buttons to bottom row G16, G17,G18 and right row (G3,G6,G9,G12, G15)
  • It is rather convenient to press keyboard 'Grey Enter' (on numpad) button with your thumb finger of the right hand when it is holding the mouse. This tip works only to users with dominant right hand.

G510s volume wheel Hi, I recently bought a Logitech G510s keyboard that have integrated audio jacks.

  • Hi @FDD ​ ,

    I'd be more than glad to assist you. 😃

    The volume wheel on the G510s Gaming Keyboard will recognize the headset plugged in on the keyboard's audio port as a default device. It will prioritize the headset volume adjustment rather than the one for your speakers.

Removing and reinserting USB plug 'fixes' the problem, but it reappears the next time (although not always).

I think this might be a device driver or firmware problem.

I have firmware version 0x1171. I wonder if it is possible to upgrade firmware as well like in C600.

Hi kievite,

Spacious for dropbox. Verify if your G510s Gaming Keyboard is plugged directly into a USB 2.0 port. Bypass the use of KVM switch boxes, port replicators, docking stations, and USB hubs if any. Then, feel free to try the suggestions provided below:

  1. Open Device Manager (Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System > Device Manager).

  2. Click on View > Devices by Connection.

  3. Expand 'Computer' (or your computer's name).

  4. Expand 'ACPI xxx-based PC'.

  5. Expand 'Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System'.

  6. Expand 'PCI bus'.

  7. Expand 'USB Universal Host Controllers' and look for a 'USB Root Hub' that has an arrow beside it (expandable).

  8. Look for a 'USB Composite Device' with a subcategory 'Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard'. This is just to confirm that you have identified the correct USB Root Hub.

  9. IMPORTANT: Go back and right-click on the 'USB Root Hub' that has the G510s keyboard as a sub-category and select 'Properties'.

  10. Go to 'Power Management' tab and uncheck 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' (illustrated below).

  11. Click on OK to confirm the action.

  12. Close the Device Manager and check if the keyboard works after the computer wakes up from sleep mode.

    Take note that you will not have 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' as an option to uncheck if you've just right-clicked on the 'Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard' under the 'Keyboards' category. It will only provide an option to uncheck 'Allow this device to wake the computer'. Right-click on the base 'USB Root Hub' instead of that.

    You can also try to disable your computer's USB selective suspend settings to maximize the power management on your USB ports. This will optimize the keyboard's functionality at any given time:

    1. Go to Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Power Options.
    2. Under 'Select a Power Plan', choose your preferred plan ('Balanced' often selected) and click on 'Change Plan Settings'.
    3. Click on 'Change Advanced Power Settings'.
    4. Choose 'High-Performance' on the drop-down box.
    5. Expand 'USB Settings' and 'USB Selective Suspend Setting'. Set the drop-down menu to 'Disable'.
    6. Click on OK to confirm your actions. Close other windows as well.
    7. If the settings did not show an immediate effect, a reboot might be required.

    I hope these suggestions help.

This will be the central thread for what we know on these issues. There have been too many freefloating threads where the answers are hidden in the middle, and it's causing confusion. All G19 threads that involve motherboards using these chipsets will be closed and directed to this thread

What we know about the G19
: It is a USB-IF certified keyboard, which means not only is it fully certified as a USB compliant device, it can also have the Windows logo on its box which shows it complies to all standards that Microsoft sets out to operate with their OSes. Units that appear to have issues on specific afflicted systems (790i/x58 chipsets and Windows Vista/7 x64, usually while running processor intensive or SLi/Crossfire based tasks) function just fine on systems with other motherboards, on x86 versions of the OS, or with SLi/Crossfire disabled.

What we know about the situation: The G19, when plugged into a x58 or 790i motherboard running Windows Vista/7 x64, may experience symptoms like excessive USB cutouts, 'stuck' keys, and degraded input performance of devices plugged into the G19's USB ports. Through extensive testing, we do not believe this is on the keyboard's side. This is because we are able to replicate the issue with ANY USB keyboard plugged into a USB 2.0 hub, regardless if they are made by Logitech or not, on these motherboard/OS combinations. The issues seem to be tied largely to the amount of data that is being communicated across the computer's bus, and so most people only witness this issue in-game while running GPUs in SLi or Crossfire mode. This reinforces that the problem lies external to the G19, as having these modes enabled or disabled makes no difference to the keyboard's hardware, firmware, or software.

Solutions we've found: We have found several solutions that, according to user reports, resolved the problem on these motherboards

  • Disable EHCI Handoff: EHCI Handoff is [ENABLED] as a default in most motherboards, and should be [DISABLED] if you are using Windows XP SP2 or greater. Most people do not disable this setting, and in our testing and from customer reports, disabling this option seems to resolve the issue on many motherboards. If you have questions about disabling this feature on your motherboard, please contact your motherboard manufacturer for the BIOS options.
  • Update your BIOS and look for driver/windows updates: We are aware that some motherboard manufactures have released BIOS updates that resolve some motherboard issues with the G19. We've also become aware of Windows updates that will resolve the USB 2.0 communication issues that cause the G19 to have poor performance. Also check for any sort of motherboard or controller chip updates.
  • Use a non-EHCI compliant PCI-e USB card, and plug the G19 into that: If a USB PCI-e card is 'non-EHCI compliant', it means it uses its own drivers, and not the system drivers, to handle the USB communication. This has been reported to us and verified in house as a potential solution for motherboards that cannot disable EHCI handoff.
  • Try spacing out or relocating USB plugs to different ports: Users have reported that plugging the G19 into a different set of USB ports, like front or top ports, OR relocating other devices to the front or top ports, has resolved USB reset issues.
  • Relocate mobile phones and devices that emit radio signals away from the G19's screen: A distance of 15'/45cm from the screen has prevented issues with some motherboards.
  • Reducing radical overclocks: Some users have reported success with their USB communications by lowering their overclock amount. Just like adjusting memory latency to adjust for optimum performance on memory chips, lowering overclocks for some users have resulted in systems with more stable USB communications.
  • Disabling SLi or Crossfire: Not ideal for some people, but has fully resolved the problem for some users.

If other users report additional solutions to this problem, and I get the steps verified by the QA team, I will add them to this section.

What we are doing: We are continuing to review customer feedback and see what steps we can take. It does appear that most of the solutions that work have come from resolutions that are external to the keyboard, like changing BIOS settings. We will review all information to determine what can be best done from Logitech's side to resolve this issue, but we believe at this point that the problem lies external to the G19, because if it was internal to the G19, it would affect all computers regardless of motherboard or OS.

[Jun 02, 2014] Great All Around Keyboard ~ Programmable Keys are Useful for Work Too!

May 18, 2013 Amazon

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )

The Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard is handsome, well designed, and well built. The main features of this keyboard are the Game Panel LCD which displays information via applets, and the 18 programmable G-Keys that can be set to do any number of things including playing back macros, running LUA scripts, running programs, etc. Although it's marketed as a gaming keyboard, the programmable G-keys can be highly useful for normal windows/work-related tasks, especially if you need to repeat operations.

To get the most out of the Logitech G510s, you need to install the excellent G software. The software enables backlight color control, activates the Game Panel, and most importantly enables G-Key programming capability. The Logitech G software is quite powerful but still simple to use, and if you own other Logitech G products, you can configure and control all of them from the Gaming Software control panel. With the G software installed, you can also record marcos on the fly using just the keyboard.

I used to own the Logitech G13 Programmable Gameboard which also incorporates a Game Panel LCD and has 27 programmable G-keys. The main issue with the G13 is that it serves as a keyboard replacement during gaming and using it outside of gaming is cumbersome since it's bulky and lacks keyboard functionality. The G510s is an excellent compromise since it offers both programmability and normal keyboard function in a single device. It should be noted that you can switch between 3 memory slots so the 18 programmable keys map up to 54 commands per game. The G510s lacks onboard memory as compared to the G13, so your macros and scripts are saved and executed in software. The drawback of not having onboard memory is that the Logitech G software needs be running at all times, and if want to use the keyboard with another PC, you will need to bring the software and custom profiles with you. The presence of onboard memory happens to be one of the main ways companies differentiate between mid-range and high-end products.

The typing experience on the Logitech G510s is more or less on par with what you get with good membrane keyboards. The keys activate with moderate finger pressure, the start and end of a keystroke are relatively crisp, and the keyboard doesn't make much noise even when mashing buttons. I've switched to mechanical keyboards and I personally prefer the tactile feel and precision offered by a good mechanical keyboard, though compared to the G510s, mechanical keyboards are often light on features. The programmable G-Keys and excellent multimedia controls make the Logitech G510s is very tempting choice for my home computer. While not as precise as a mechanical keyboard, I think the G510s is suitable for most users and it is highly usable in a variety of environments. Keep in mind that it is physically wider than most keyboards due to row of G-keys to the left, but that's a small price to pay for the increased functionality.

Logitech is one of the top brands for PC peripherals, and this has been earned by their willingness to pay attention to details while upholding a reputation for quality and good customer service. An example of this attention to detail can be found in the quality paint job: there appears to be a clear coat or something like it, so the little designs around the arrow and G-keys are protected and shouldn't fade with use. Also, while the paint on the keys makes them a little shiny, the combination feels durable and substantial, exuding a feeling of quality. Overall, I think the Logitech G510s is a solid keyboard with many real value-added features.

Note:

1) Logitech deserves praise for the USB implementation for the audio functions: the headphone/microphone ports are driven by an integrated USB audio controller that is only activated/installed when you plug in a pair of headphones. Lesser keyboards either have pass-through analog extensions which may degrade audio quality, or they have a always-on USB audio solution that changes your system default audio device to the keyboard instead of your sound card. Ultimately, the G510s presents itself to your system as a single USB compound device which is preferred over lesser keyboards which require a USB 2.0 hub to incorporate macro/keyboard/audio functions.

2) The silver WASD buttons threw me off for several days. I found that I consistently placed my hands a bit too far to the right, perhaps in a subconscious attempt to avoid the silver blight. I can touch type, and by feeling for the little marks on the F and J keys, I could correct myself, but it still took a few days to get used to it.

3) The backlight isn't particularly bright and the lettering on WASD can be hard to see in bright lighting with the backlight enabled. I would prefer if Logitech provided some swappable keycaps so I can remove the silver blight that is WASD.

By JMJ on November 7, 2013

I don't play games on my computer but I use it a lot at night for business and the lighted keyboard is awesome, I don't need to turn on any lights in my office because it is lit and I can use the short cut keys to start other programs I regularly use.
