Logitech G512 GX blue review


I don't normally do these amatuer reviews, but I'm pretty happy with my most recent purchase, so I thought i'd share.


For the past 4 years, i've been using a Logitech G105 for my office computer keyboard. My only complaint with that board, was a sticking left shift key(even after cleaning), other then that it was a perfectly fine, normal keyboard. 


About 6 months ago, I stumbled upon some reviews of mechanical keyboards. Initially, I couldn't tell what all the fuss was about, but I decided to get it a try. I ordered the G512 Carbon directly from Logitech on 8/24 and picked it up from the post office today. I went with the 512 because of the reviews online, the relatively minimalist, not totally gamery appearance(office usage), and the middle of the road price of $100.



Clicky clicky is oh so satisfying to type quickly on, compared to the mush of the G105

Dark minimalism

Lots of RGB if you're into that sort of thing. I just set it to static blue to match my g302 mouse.

USB port

Heft. It feels reassuringly well built and not lightweight.



Clicky clicky might get annoying to coworkers on quiet days.

USB port isn't the easiest to access in my configuration, and is only 2.0.

I have not found a way to sync the lighting effects between my G512 and G302 in the Logitech software, they have to be done separately, which is a bummer since I like the breathing effect. Having them both breath at slightly different rates looks super dumb.


I think it looks great, feels good, and is satisfying to type on. I'm happy with it.


I may update this review after I play a few games on it, but I can't imagine that would tarnish how I already feel about it.

I worry about the loud Blue keys. My current keyboard is Cherry MX Brown, and I think I'll have to stay there. Lots of typing for my job, so a lot of noise, even though I work from home!
