    I own both this, and the G610, and personally the G610 is the much nicer keyboard. Its also on sale at mwave for $89 right now ($101 shipped for me, so pretty comparable to this price).

    Cherry Red: https://www.mwave.com.au/product/logitech-g610-orion-red-mec...

    Personal opinions on Romer-G vs Cherry may differ of course.

      Do you mainly use it for gaming, or office work?

      G610 no RGB

      The original g512 are romer-g, but newer g512 are using cherry style key, you can see from the official website

      https://www.logitechg.com/en-au/products/gaming-keyboards/g5...

      From the keyboard photo you can tell from the key cap, cherry style the letter is on the top part of the key cap, where romer g is in the middle.

      However in this listing the big photo is showing cherry style, while the close up is the romer g style. Just be warned.

      I used the romer g one, is all right. I also use the cherry brown before, romer g feel a bit more mushy but the actuation point for romer is shorter.

        Thanks for the heads up humbala. My G512 is the Romer-G, so doesn't compare as well. Good to know they switched over.

        •  

          I reckon it's cheaper to make cherry copy than romer that's why they changed.

          I hate company change the product but keep the same name though, confuse everyone.

      Same here, picked mine up at EB for $89, didnt realise what a bargain it was at the time. Excellent keyboard.

    Tempting given my 2 1/2 year old G910 has been having a lot of issues with keys double typing.

    •  

      Ive had two 910 spectrums in 15 months. Both double typed and the shift and space started to not respond.
      Switched to the 512 a couple of months ago, love it.

      might be a common problem with older logitech keyboards, ive got a g510 and it too double types. i have had this keyboard since 2013 or so.

    •  

      I had a G413 which is basically the non-RGB version of this, and it was double typing too.
      I think this happens on all old Romer-G switches as the keycap stems are pretty flimsy and mine were breaking off and getting
      stuck in the switches.

    I have one (and am typing this comment on it). Have had this particular one since 2019, but I originally bought in 2018. RMA'd the first due to 2 of the keys having dying LEDs (both losing much of their ability to project blue) within a year. Same thing has happened with this one, but I couldn't be bothered contacting them again. This one also has developed a couple of dodgy keys (occasionally double typing, other times not responding), one of which I rarely use, so it's not like I've been banging on it too much.

    Also on a note of personal taste, not a fan of the Romer-G switches. Also impossible to get custom keycaps as I'm not a fan of the fact that these aren't painted by default and are hard to read without the lights on.
