I just got a G510 keyboard today to replace my infallable G15 1st generation keyboard (which died of old age), and I'm having a problem with unresponsive keys. If I press a key down and hold it, and take a little bit of pressure off that key (without releasing it), the key will stop acting as if it is held down. This seems to happen with all my keys. This is especially frustrating in games when I'm trying to run forward and relax my finger, causing me to stop moving.
I was wondering how widespread this problem is, because I want to know if I should even bother getting the same keyboard as a replacement. I'm definitely at least taking this one back to the store. I really love logitech keyboards because of my G15 but I'm disappointed in this bug. I read some posts about other people who have had similar problems. I would really hate to get a replacement, only to discover that it too is defective. Is this problem common enough for me to have to actually worry about getting a second defective keyboard if I get the same one? Was there a bad batch, and is there a way I can tell at the store whether a replacement was part of the same batch?
The keyboard is plugged directly into the motherboard, and I have tried switching ports.

I returned my G510 to the store and got a replacement, and was very disappointed to find that the replacement had the same problem. I don't know if it's a defect or a design flaw, but either way, I'll be buying a competitor's keyboard instead. It's unfortunate that the successor to such a great piece of hardware (my old G15) is so flawed.
