Summary: I have been testing this keyboard for three weeks now, and I am ready to rate it now. I am typing this review with it. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- For you impatient types, here is your executive review: Gaming functions: 5/5 Key profiler and game scan: 4/5 Built in audio jack: 5/5 Built in mic jack: 5/5 Built in USB port: 2/5 Built in multimedia controls: 3/5 Back-lighting: 5/5 Keyboard as a keyboard: 3/5...
Summary: Let me start out with saying that I normally love Logitech products; I've had very few issues with them in the past, and the quality is usually fairly good. However, this doesn't seem to be the case with the G110 keyboard. When I removed the product from it's packaging, the first thing I noticed was the cheap, sub-par wrist rest that came with the keyboard. Right now as I'm typing this review, I can feel a flex where my wrists are at.
Summary: BRIEFLY While it's unlikely it will ever win any awards on 'looks', the G110 is a good 'typing' keyboard that features solid macro capabilities. The G110 comes short from being 'best in class' but it can be a keeper if, let's say, Santa dropped it under the Christmas tree for someone who really, really wanted a keyboard that did macros and came with a few nice extras. THE KEYBOARD - Packaging, contents - Only good things here.
Summary: I wanted a laptop that was backlit and this seemed a good option, I purchased in December 2011 so it's been a good 18 months. The first year or so of use, I really couldn't fault the keyboard; keys feel really nice, ease of typing is... easy. backlight works well, decent colour options (then again who really cares as long as you can see it at night) Then the problems began... And by began, I basically mean after about a year of use, the backlighting just failed.
Summary: Good: - keys are sturdy enough in an old fashioned way - Windows key can be switched off - function keys in a traditional grouped-by-four configuration - keys are back-lit Bad: - multimedia keys don't work (proprietary software installed) - G keys are utterly useless, the keyboard would be much etter without them and with keys of standard width - keys are not back-lit enough - even with raisers up the keyboard is still flat on the table
Summary: The actual design of the keyboard is very good. Very nice feel to the keyboard very responsive. Only problem is the keyboard would cause my computer to crash on start up. Turns out the drivers are not compatible with my computer.
Summary: Length:: 0:47 Mins So I actually got this in January, and not February, but even so for £60 I usually expect to get a year out of a keyboard. Not 3 months. I expected it to be a good sturdy piece of kit like other logitech items, which is why I had no problem handing over the cash, but unfortunately I am disappointed.
Summary: I expected this to work with Win8, also I understood that any colors could be used, but sadly it displays only in 40 shades of reds and blues or a mix of both, I needed white. Verry sturdy and solid.
Summary: This keyboard works but it has downsides about pretty much every aspect of it. Firstly, it is very low. Not sure if this is typical of a gaming keyboard but the prop clips at the back barely raise the keyboard at all. Next, the keys themselves are very mushy. Again, this may be how gamers prefer it but I'm finding it hard to get used to. Sometimes if I am holding a key like W to move forward in a game, it will release before it pops back up.
Summary: Used at work in low light environment where the backlit keyboard makes typing much easier. The fact that you can set up 3 different colours of lighting and easily swap between them is a real boon too (separate ones for different lighting conditions). The really annoying problem is that I cannot get the keyboard volume control to work!
