It's nice while it lasted
After 2.5 years a bunch of blue LED's are dead, the N key works randomly and the keypad enter double taps every time I hit it now. I suspect more are subtly acting up as well since there is a stark difference in the typos I am making using this keyboard vs a cheaper one. I don't have these issues on the keyboard I use for doing help desk support and didn't use to run into them until the last few months.
I have a Logitech G106 that is 6+ years old that works perfectly fine that went through way more abuse than this G513 model. For $150+ I expect better life from a mechanical keyboard, especially when the failing keys are ones that are infrequently used. I used this keyboard on gaming rig, it would have at least made some sense if it was the WASD keys or the nearby keys, or anything on the right hand side at least but it's keys on the opposite side acting up. My G106 is on a WFH setup and gets much more use and to this day works perfectly fine. Doing some research on the problem and there is a trend of these issues with the G513. Typing on this thing is an absolute frustrating pain now. I would suggest going with a more reputable model, this is not worth 170$ (Listed price at the time of this review)
