(Product) Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard

Let me start by saying: I love my G15 keyboard. I am a huge gamer. I play shooters, MMO’s, RPG’s, RTSs you name it. I’ve tried many other gaming controllers over the years but they always took up more room than they were really worth.

So, here is a look at the G15’s key features:

Macro buttons: I love the huge selection of macro’s available. You can use the included software or program your own. Additionally, the G15 recognizes when you start a specific program and will load the appropriate macro set. It doesn’t get any easier than that.

Backlight: This is great for gaming, not so great for regular work. When I game, I keep the lights low. When I work, I keep the lights on. The backlight is just not enough to keep the letter illuminated when there is a light source in the room. However, it provides just enough for you to type away in the dark.

USB Ports: The USB 1.0 compliant ports are great for when I want to plug something in on the go. Not so good for when you need to transfer data (say from a camera) or if you want to charge something (like a cellphone). However, it works great for when I just want to plug in my mouse or a scanner to import a document real quick.

LCD Screen: Depending on the application, the LCD screen is great. In World of Warcraft the screen is really useful for tracking your character stats. However, in other games all that is displayed is the name of the game. I would love to see more support both in titles and in the way the screen is used.

Overall, especially with the recent price drop, I’d say this is a great keyboard for any gamer that wants more macros available. However, I think that if you can afford it you should go for the new model.
