I kept seeing a lot of reviews saying "but I ended up going with the G510 and love it"... but when I went searching for that, all I found was that G510s and was like "why on EARTH do they love that?!" hah. Now I know... they screwed with a good thing?
Well, my gripe with the G510s is it's just ugly, to me.
Functionally it may be the same, aside from reportedly not being compatible with really old versions of Logitech's gaming software like the G510 is. I can't vouch for that though as I've never played with the G510s.
I will say I tried the G15, G19, and a couple Razer keyboards along with the G510 and for me, the G510 blew them all out of the water. The rest got sold/returned and I kept it and never looked back. I have tried the G710 in the meantime, but I didn't care for it either.

I'm not saying that "1337 gam4rs must use mechanical ! hurr durr!", but I think that you really should try different mechanical keyboards. Try cherry reds, and then cherry greens - those are polar opposites in terms of feel. It goes Red - Brown - Blue - Green if order of "feel" (red has the least amount of 'feel' - it's just a smooth and easy keypress. Green requires more force to press down a key, and will make the "click" noise when u press it. Brown and Blue fills in the middle). There's a black switch in there, but I've never tried it personally.
I'm not dismissing them out of hand, I've tried them. Just never played with one I liked more than what I've already got. Never got the whole "it improves your game" thing either. Moving to a laser mouse over optical, I can see that. A magnet field flight stick over potentiometers, I can DEFINITELY see that (tried the TM Warthog and a week later my pricey CH setup was on eBay and had been replaced with a Warthog). But a keypress is a keypress. I've got an original Apple black PowerMac keyboard (like Fm's), a Logitech Cordless Elite, and a Logitech G510. I can't tell a difference between any of them as far as responsiveness to keypresses, nor can I feel any non-uniformity in the keys. The only real difference is the spacing between keys is different. The Apple keyboard and G510 have a pretty similar tight feel, while the Cordless Elite has wider typo-eliminating spacing.
