Took more than two months but I finally took replacement for G512 Carbon Romer-G Linear with GX-Brown. I didn't accept as they weren't giving me linear the one i bought. They had offered me gx-blue which i declined but also offered me brown recently which i first declined but after reading about it chose it (also i think they aren't making romer-g ones anymore). As i type from it i am very happy. It is improvement from linear as it is easier to type. Only thing bad compared to romer-g keys is the rgb led is on top of the keys and illumination is at the top compared to center for romer-g. As such secondary keys don't get illuminated.
I own a G512 Romer-G Tactile and its key caps suck which come off easily and i am done with logitech. Both my G502 hero mouse (double-clicks) and G512 keyboard (some keys stopped working) just after year mark are/will be replaced under warranty (waiting for keyboard since 3 weeks since they don't have RomerG Tactile version i bought and yesterday they asked to replace with GX Blue which i have denied). The body and finish of G512 is solid and heavy and looks great and both RomerG versions have proper RGB implementation with the characters backlit in center whereas in GX Blue the backlight in on top of keycap and it looks weird. I bought mine for these reasons. But Logitech quality control has gone down the drain past few years and shows when they don't even ask questions and just replace under warranty. I also chose this as it seems to be one of the cheapest mechanical keyboards but i should have gone with HyperX Alloy which had similar pricing iirc.

Would recommend to give gx-brown a try.

Okay, let me add to the stuff here. Bought some cheapo wireless mechanical keyboards (brown and blue switches), and am loving them. Also added K55 to the mix.

The white one (God's Own Keyboard) has brown keys. Cherry Clones, while the black one has blue clones.

I usually do not prefer TKL keyboards, but was enamoured by the white one. Both work on 2.4ghz. The black one also works on bluetooth.

Not RGB, just standard white lighting. Since I use them at a naturally lit work place, the back-light isn't much of an issue.

The white charges via USB-C, the black sadly has MicroUSB.

Both are plenty heavy and robustly built. Need to see how long they last. Cost me around $65 a piece.
