I recently purchased a Logitech G510 gaming keyboard. It's an good keyboard, but the first one I had to take back because sometimes the space bar wouldn't register and sometimes it would register twice with one press. It seemed totally random. Anyway, the one I just replaced it with doesn't seem to have a problem registering every time I hit the space, but I still sometimes get a double space when I press the space bar.
I'm using Windows 7 and have downloaded the latest setpoint drivers.
Has anyone experienced any similar problems?

I'm having both problem :
1. sometimes it doesn't register my space
2. sometimes I got double space
So I went to http://www.microsoft.com/appliedsciences/content/p
This keyboard only register keypress properly when I fully press the key (any key! not just spacebar)..
I'm also using Windows 7 x64 and latest driver.

It doesn't really have anything to do with ghosting. It seems that it is registering a double tap on the spacebar random when I don't depress it fast enough. I'm a fast typer; I'm not going to pause and twack the space bar really hard every time I need a space.
TweakUI used to have a setting to prevent accidental doubletaps by ignoring the second event if it came in too close to the first one. I can't install tweakUI on windows 7 though. Does anyone know an app that can do this?
Logitech, this is a pretty serious design flaw.

Yup it's not related to ghosting. I'm just using that website to check either this keyboard send the keystroke properly depends on how hard I tap the key.
The result is, I need to tap the key harder to make sure all the keystroke registered properly. And for spacebar, the left or right side is a bit weak. If I press fast enough (especially when typing), there's a chance that the spacebar not registered at all OR double space bar occur.
I'm also a fast typer that's why I got the same problem too.
I really not expect a keyboard with this price having silly problem like this...... It's my 1st Logitech keyboard.. Oh what a bad purchase...

I just bought this keyboard tonight and am having the same issue. For the price this is just ridiculous. Is there anything besides returning it that can fix this? I really dont want to though cause I like everything else about it.

I sure wish there was some solution but it appears that Logitech has elected to ignore this. I have asked this on other computer hardware forums and so far there have been other replies from people experiencing this.
Expecting us to pay this much money for a product who's competition has keyboards that cost three dollars and have a working space bar I am a little taken aback. I don't know if I will ever buy a Logitech product again after this.

Thank you for posting your issue to the Logitech Community Forums.
The posts on this thread did not say whether or not any of you have tried this however have you gone to Start->Control Panel->Keyboard Properties and tried to manipulate the Repeat Rate and see what effect that would cause?
