If all you need are backlit keys, G110 serves its function.
3 November 2012
Summary: I tried out this keyboard because I needed a backlit keyboard since I usually game into the deep, dark recesses of the night; and was initially disappointed; but I'm loving the keyboard a little more each day as I get used to it. The backlit keys serve their purpose, helping you find your way in the dark...but that's about it. The backlight is extremely dim, nearly invisible in a well-illuminated room.
Excerpt: I bought this keyboard off of newegg because of the price. I got it for about 40 after mail in rebate and discount promotion. I would not have paid the full 80 dollar price tag for it though, since i'm not a hardcore gamer. i needed a keyboard to satisfy my moderate gaming needs yet still look professional. This keyboard does just that. It is thin and the led back light is configurable. you can have any color from red to blue and a mixture of the two and varying degrees.
Excerpt: I purchased the Logitech G110 keyboard for a very low price (about $30 after a sale and a mail-in rebate) at Fry's Electronics, and I would say it was well worth the price. Unfortunately, this keyboard often tends to retail at about the same price as Logitech's most popular keyboard, the G15. Both these keyboards have their own advantages over the other, so it really comes down to personal preference.
Excerpt: That heavy keyboard has mechanical buttons with 12 programmable keys with 3 colors of LED backlit. The buttons make some noise but they are very good for gaming. One uncomfortable thing is voice control wheel. It makes me annoyed to get exact level of sound. Overall it is a good gaming keyboard.
Summary: I just replaced my G15 (2nd edition)with this one, the keys are so quiet and responsive just like the G15,I just hope the keys don't fade like the G15. I play some online games and the wsad movement keys got faded so bad the letter legends were gone,and started to wear away within a few month of purchase (I read somewhere this may have been rectified on newer ones).
Pros: Love on-the-fly macros, and per-application macro assignments. Good tactile response. Back-lit keys. Like to volume wheel and built-in headphone/microphone controls.
Cons: Cannot use with a KVM switch or non-powered USB hub, and cannot use a USB drive with the keyboard. Flimsy wrist pad. Hard plastic makes squeaky sounds. Macros do not always work as programmed. No easy way to simulate Power/Sleep, Media Center keys.
Summary: Very good and solid keyboard. The layout will take a day to get used to because the G keys offset the normal ones. Backlighting is nifty although they should have added green lighting. One problem is that the feet to raise the keyboard are too short and dont raise the keyboard enough, but that was fixed with a cardboard strip.
"A keyboard that is very functional for a cheap price."

Pros: Custom color back lighting(well, somewhat), 12 x 3 programmable G keys, has a good software to program key's with, and has a USB port and headphone/mic ports as well (built in audio card.) has some very nice buttons, and has a cheap price.
Cons: The hand rest has a cheap feel too it, pretty obvious since its plastic. The custom lighting, is not too bright and not much of a variety of colors, just red and blue and everything in between. It is very large, but most people can cope with that.
