Logitech Gaming Keyboard, Game Pad and Mouse Questions

I just saw that Logitech released a new G510s gaming keyboard. As far as I can tell, excluding the fact that it has a new paint job, smear resistant surface, less desk slipping, and new lighting system, everything else appears to be the same as the G510. Currently, I have a G600 MMO mouse, a G510 keyboard, and a G13 Gamepad. I bought my G510 and G13 in December of 2011 and the G600 in June of 2012. I plan to build a Gaming PC this fall and use the components with it for 2 to 4 years unless one of the components go bad or any future game software updates prove incompatible. My questions are as followed:

1. Besides the differences I just mentioned, is the G510s identical to the G510?

2. Will any software updates between now and 2 to 4 years likely remain compatible with my hardware? I assume that since these keyboards are built stronger and replaced less frequently than standard keyboards, that I could still have a number of years of enjoyment with my gaming hardware.

3. Are there still any PC gamers out here that use predecessors to the G510 and still able to get software updates from Logitech if they require software to function in games such as Mass Effect or Crysis?

Hi jpolk1138,

I'll try to answer your questions as best as I can.

1. Besides the differences I just mentioned, is the G510s identical to the G510?
Yes, they're pretty much identical besides for the features that you mentioned.

2. Will any software updates between now and 2 to 4 years likely remain compatible with my hardware? I assume that since these keyboards are built stronger and replaced less frequently than standard keyboards, that I could still have a number of years of enjoyment with my gaming hardware.
I can't really say for certain but if you take note of the previous gaming keyboard models like the G15 (2005), G19 (2009), G13 (2009), G110 (2009) and G500 (2008), they are still currently supported by the latest version of the Logitech Gaming Software. It's likely going to be the same for newer models if we based it on the track record.

3. Are there still any PC gamers out here that use predecessors to the G510 and still able to get software updates from Logitech if they require software to function in games such as Mass Effect or Crysis?
Refer to question number 2.

I hope this helps. :)
