Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard Testing:
The Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard was defiantly put through over a week of use and testing. During this time it was used it in everyday use, surfing the Internet, ranting on forums and of course some gaming. As a mouse is personal to each and every individual so how it responds in these various tasks is important in different ways to everyone. This rather subjective review is best to provide you the feedback from use rather than assigning made up numbers trying to compare one mouse to another. It's pretty easy to distinguish the likes and dislikes of a mouse through words rather than leaving it to you to decide what a 7 or 8 really means. No guessing game – here's what I liked, and here's what I hated.

Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard Results:
In everyday use this keyboard excels. The keys, being membrane, are quiet and feel super smooth. Although it doesn't have the usual feedback that I am used to with mechanicals, the short keystroke seems to make typing quick and efficient. Besides my horrid spelling capabilities I found myself making few mistakes I didn't know I had mistyped. The standard layout makes things easy to find and comfortable to use. The full layout also makes it nice enough to not have special function keys to get to "END" or "DEL" as they are their own set of keys – just how I like it. Emails and day-to-day typing via chat or whatever it is you do daily (besides work or game), this keyboard really hits the spot. It's quiet, smooth, and easy to type with.
Working is a whole different world from everyday typing and often takes something special to make me happy. Whether it's writing this lovely review for you to read, writing up some code for work, or writing up some paper for school, I like having just the right key set. Changing the standard layout is something I can get used to; I just don't like to since I move between so many different machines. Major props to the G510s for keeping a standard layout. Besides the addition of the 18 macros (preferred for gaming, though I suppose could be used for work), the keyboard includes a full number pad for number crunching and anything where you will be typing too many numbers to care to do it from home row. I was overall pleased working with this keyboard. Honestly I tend to be picky and first to get stabbed at is having a number pad; I just like having one. Having volume control and the usual media keys makes me happy while I'm working too, so if a horrid song comes on the radio I don't have to move far from my work to fix it.
Gaming is a world of peace; getting away from work and the real world sometimes. So a keyboard that can keep me happy while gaming is a major plus. I don't like having to fight with poor software to set up key bindings or use SHIFT +
