    Choice of Mechanical Switch

    Romer-G is quieter and 25% faster than standard mechanical switches. Now available in two distinct versions: Tactile or Linear. Romer-G Tactile is the original profile, providing a discernible actuation point that you can feel, while Romer-G Linear provides a completely smooth keystroke.

    Romer-G Tactile and Romer-G Linear are sold separately.

    Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Alloy

    G512 is crafted from incredibly strong and durable 5052 aluminum-magnesium alloy which allows for both a minimal design and a beautiful aesthetic. The rigidity of 5052 alloy also provides a sturdy, non-slip chassis that houses a full suite of features for an unbeatable gaming experience.

    USB Passthrough

    Convenience and speed are directly within reach. The additional, dedicated USB cable connects the USB passthrough port to its own input for full power throughput and data speed. Plug in a device to charge or plug in a mouse to charge your adversaries, without missing a beat.

    Full Function Keys

    Media and lighting controls are right at your fingertips. Use the FN key to control volume, play and pause, mute, toggle game mode, change lighting effects, etc. Use the FN toggle feature in Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) and configure your function keys to perform these alt commands by default.

    Dedicated Gaming Features

    Don’t lose a game because you fat-fingered the Windows key. Toggle game mode with FN+F8. Deactivate additional keys using LGS.

    Store per-key RGB lighting profiles in the onboard memory for use on any system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 9/10 The keyboard is good and the switches feel nice. I recommend tactile switches became they just feel better to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth and satisfying I've only had this keyboard for a few weeks now, but I LOVE It! I have the linear switch, which is practically a mx red. It is a great feeling keyboard and the lighting is 10/10. But if you are getting a keyboard with Romer-G switches, definitely get the linear switch as the tactile is mushy. I even dare to compare it to a rubber done membrane keyboard. All in all, the g512 is a beautiful and sleek keyboard. Definitely recommend.
