What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Logitech G512 RGB Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • The keyboard has an anodised brushed aircraft-grade aluminium top case for increased durability, which feels premium and gives the keyboard a good overall weight.
  • The lower section is plastic which helps reduce overall weight but not the overall solidness of the keyboard.
  • There is a noticeable weight difference with the my previous logitech keyboard, this being much lighter.
  • It's nice and heavy keyboard and there's very little chance of dirt getting in anywhere.
  • This keyboard is heavy and solid, excellent for the price it is. Good rig for hard gamers.
Logitech G513 RGB Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Romer-G Linear Key Switches
  • I didn’t really want a gaming keyboard but they do seem to get a few more features than a normal keyboard. Logitech have long been a firm favourite of mine, generally good quality and long lasting.
  • The keyboard is very heavy and sturdy, given the aluminium construction. The size is perfect.
  • The metal body gives it some weight but makes it feel really strong and sturdy.
  • Love the aluminium body to it. Keeping it strong and elegant.
  • Great keyboard with RGB lighting. Build quality outstanding and wrist pad very comfortable and durable.

What customers say about "Keys"
Logitech G512 RGB Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • The keys require very little force to be pressed, but you will still feel the point when the actuation point is reached.
  • The overall typing experience is great. Good manufacturer, highly recommend.
  • The key caps themselves do have a nice concave to them so when your finger does meet the key it naturally fits the shape of your finger for more comfort.
  • The lighting on every key is proper good, and have some new look for rgb keyboard.
  • The keys feel firm and the action is positive. The RGB colours are bright.
Logitech G513 RGB Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Romer-G Linear Key Switches
  • I work 8h a day in my home office as a coder and I had decided I needed a new keyboard. I really wanted a backlit keyboard that would withstand constant abuse of coffee spills and crumbs.
  • Still left searching for the perfect keyboard... if Das Keyboard made a blacklit Pro 4 with proper keyboard legs instead of the weird "ruler"-thing it would beat this Logitech into a pulp.
  • The lighting is probably the best, cleanest you'll ever find since they're on the key caps themselves.
  • Light doesn't bleed outside of the keycaps, give it more of a sharp and clean lighting effect (some may prefer the lights to bleed on the side of the keycaps but in my opinion, it makes it more difficult to see the keys).
  • The keys have real stability, no rocking/shaking in comparison to Corsair keyboards that I have tried.
  • The keys are somewhat noisy but not extremely so (by the standards of mechanical keyboards), so fine by me.

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech G512 RGB Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
  • Keyboard is great in-between for gaming and typing alike.
  • The LED's are cool and G-HUB is very customisable, absolutely love it!
  • The colour coding is simple to set up and use and overall the keyboard feels perfect for gaming.
  • The software G HUB, has irritating bugs which one can only hope get fixed.
  • The two USB cables that come attached together are a little odd, im not sure why i need to use up two usb ports on my PC.
Logitech G513 RGB Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Romer-G Linear Key Switches
  • The cables are pretty long for a keyboard. I do regret not going for a wireless keyboard but I think it’s so strong it’ll outlast me.
  • The keys are nicely spaced and everything is positioned well. The wrist rest is superb and a must. After years of gaming and office work I used to get rsi strain, so this does help.
  • The wrist rest feels premium and you're able to adjust it accordingly!
  • Palm-rest is also great, not attachable so even if you have big hands, no problem.
  • The software was a bit of a pain to use (I couldn't see what colour value, i.e. RGB, a key was set to after I'd set it).
