    Logitech G15 LCD Keyboard Review


    (Page 1 of 5 )

    Manufacturers have been trying new keyboard designs to keep up with ever-changing programs and games. The Logitech G15 is a keyboard designed with power users in mind. Whether you’re a gamer or just looking for maximum productivity, you will probably drool at the built-in LCD screen, programmable G keys, backlight layout, and other special touches.

     

    Logitech’s gaming mice, like the ergonomic laser G5, are de facto standards for many. The company is the Godzilla of input devices, and last October they set out to add a must-have keyboard to their product line. Thus the G15 was born.

    Even among throngs of specialty keyboards like Z-boards and natural keyboards and the Wolf’s Claw, the G15 easily stands out. Whether this does us any good though, we’ll soon see.

    Think Geek was kind enough supply us with our review sample in today, and you can see their packaging above. The box seems rather large, but well padded to keep the precious computer parts safe. Let’s take a quick look at the unique feature set that Logitech has published on the G15.

    • View game stats. Use the GamePanel™ LCD to view game stats, create new macros, and keep track of important system information without leaving the game. The LCD panel closes completely for transport and storage.
    • Play in the dark. Illuminated characters are easily visible in both bright- and low-light conditions, with three levels of backlighting for late-night gaming sessions.
    • Create and save macros with a press of a button. 18 fully programmable “G Keys” have three shift states each, for 54 possible custom macros per game
    • Eliminate cable hassles! Intelligently route mouse, headset, or other cables using convenient channels under the keyboard.
    • Record custom key sequences. Make on-the-fly additions to your key programming set with Macro Record button.
    • Watch and listen. Convenient media keys for easy management of audio and video playback.

    With that much said, take a look at how the keyboard worked for us.
