Logitech Gaming G512 Carbon Keyboard Review

You might be wondering if you need to invest in a dedicated gaming keyboard, so here’s a summary of why you might want to consider the Logitech Gaming G512 Carbon Keyboard.

If you’ve bought a new mouse at the same time, it’s best to install that first then get the keyboard up and working. You might already have the Logitech G HUB installed.

The long box contains one gaming keyboard and user documentation.   

You can personalise the lighting for each individual key. Using the software, you can create your own animations or choose from a library of preset effects. There are three different keyboard options, depending on your personal preference: tactical, linear and clicky.

Logitech Gaming G512 Carbon Keyboard Pros

  • An anodized and brushed aluminium top case
  • Keys are fully customisable – with reactive lighting
  • RGB light technology
  • USB passthrough at the back for data and power connectivity
  • Turn the room lights off, or play at night for the full effect
  • There is a two-year hardware warranty.

Logitech Gaming G512 Carbon Keyboard Cons

  • High profile off the desk, so some people may require a wrist pad
  • Full set of number keys – a large arm stretch between alphabet keys and your mouse

You can turn the dedicated gaming features of the keyboard on and off, by hitting the FN+F8 keys. Depending on the game you have selected, you can then create programmable macro commands using the F1 to F12 buttons. Think complex commands or a series of actions. The special keys can be used as lighting controls, media controls, and volume controls.

The Logitech Gaming G512 Carbon keyboard provides an affordable option for advanced gamers who would like an immersive experience with an old-school mechanical feel. This keyboard is way too cool to take to your regular day-job.
