I love the keyboard, it goes back to the larger size and extra keys of the original G15.

I am going to get the keyboard and headset. Still thinking about the mouse. The extra buttons are appealing because I can move macro's to them instead of the G-keys.

I am hoping they have a "lower" end keyboard with fewer G-keys. I only use about 8 of them, don't need the gigantic number plus g1, g2, g3 switching personally.

It's cool the mouse has a charge cable. It was so annoying with my MX1000. If it went flat gaming I had to stop and put it in it's cradle and connect another mouse.

I wouldn't trade my MX518 for no other mouse right now, but damn that G510 keyboard is sexy. Do want.

Cool. Let me know how it is in terms of size and layout compared to the G-15

I am very tempted but having a slightly smaller keyboard would be preferable.

glad I didn't buy it yet.

Weak backlights also do not help this keyboard even if we can customize the color to whatever we could want.

These issues make this keyboard hard to recommend at the current retail price of $120.

Its not bad overall apparently, but doesn't seem to fix any of the misses on the original G-15 that the newer models were dealing with.

Still want to see more reviews honestly
