My friend has a pair of MX1000s, so when one dies he just swaps it for the other one.

That's why I loved my G7. Quick swap Lithium-Ion battery packs

My 1st gen G15 died on me a few weeks ago (okay well the switch that disables the windows key was stuck so I took it apart to fix it. I fixed the switch but in the process buggered up the contact sheet thing so some keys didn't work.) Now I'm using my G11 that I had laying around.

Looks like a pretty sexy keyboard. I'd buy one if I needed a new one. Anybody used the mouse yet?

its available for over a month at select online stores. Newegg was the first.

retail stores like: Best Buy, Microcenter, CompUSA/Tiger Direct, or Frys when I checked 2-3 days ago still don't have it.

I'm waiting for retail store, so I can actually see the product, i wanted to buy either G19 or G110 before, but when I actually saw the keyboard it looked rather cheap.

Multi-key input
Press any five keys at the same time and they will all be recognized, so you can do more things at once.
doesn't that sound a bit low? only 5?

come on, they could do better then that
http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/p...eyboardpr.mspx

and having 5 fingers, you can often press more then 5 keys .

with thumb you can press 2 some letter and space bar for example.

even with normally you press 3-4 at a time, 5 buttons at a time just doesn't give a lot of room.

I got my corporate discount coupon today from Logitech so I am going to buy the headset

Probably will wait on the keyboard for a bit. The mouse is still very tempting.

Lighter than my old Turtle beach headset and the support is pretty good.

i got the G510 yesterday, dissapointed so far

1) keys seem to be less visible then on my old G15
2) LCD is far worse then on G15, its tiny, its so deep inside the keyboard that the frame around it blocks the view. when sitting back in my chair I don't see the bottom part of it, in Logitech Performance monitor I can see the CPU % and the bar, but I only see the top portion of the letters RAM %, and bar is not visible.
3) really don't like the high arch on the palm rest
4) it doesn't display volume change on the LCD, not sure why, when I turn that "roll bar" LCD will not show the volume change
