Software

To go along with the heads up display of the G510 and to allow more customization of the macro keys Logitech has its “gaming Software”. Their software integrates what used to take multiple programs with the keyboard alone as well as works with all of Logitech’s gaming product line. That means you only need one program installed to make changes to your G510, G13, and Logitech mice.

On top of being able to create your own profiles both in the software and on the fly, Logitech automatically scans for installed games and gives you the option to use profiles designed for each game also. Something I want to point out here that is different from our G13 and G19 coverage, the software finally works correctly with steam. Before it would only pick-up games that were installed by disk. If that was the case now it wouldn’t pick up much on my PC.

All of the HUD apps are controllable on one page. There are only a few that I find important, with Vent being at the top of that list. It’s nice that the software also takes into account what device you are programing and using a photo of the correct device in the software. It even picks up the difference between the original G15 and the orange v2 G15.

As with the G19 the G510 has the ability to be adjusted to just about any color. Ironically my first two picks were orange and blue. I realized that the original G15 colors were both good choices. Just to be different from the G15 I am currently running green.

The G510 has onboard memory for you to be able to store your profiles to be able to use them on other PC’s. You will still have to run the “Logitech Gaming” software though.

I was talking with Wingless about keyboards over the weekend. Whey don't they just offer a small screen that could be mounted to a keyboard or even onto a monitor for stats and other fun things? it could be plugged into a USB port and would be fully customizable to display anything from game stats to system specs which in game.
Wingless agreed that it would be a good idea, but he figured the price point would be too high to make it marketable. I know i'd spend $30-$40 for one as it would be cool to have since i don't wannt spend tons of money on a keyboard that only had a small screen on it,

Yea, Dave, and I were talking and I said I want a mechanical keyboard but with the screen off of the G510. If Logitech made that, I would buy it.

Even if they did offer a separate screen it would be pricey. I would be more willing to spend $150 on a nice mechanical keyboard with a screen than any old keyboard with a $50 add on screen.

Get whatever keyboard suits your needs, then add this:
www.amazon.com/Lilliput-Um-70-Monitor-no...n-product/B000AYHY7I
7", touch, and will display anything that your regular screen can show.

Still to big of a screen for me.

I want something like the SteelSeries 6GV2 with the screen of the G510. That would be perfect.
