Logitech G19s Gaming Keyboard with Color Game Panel Screen
6 March 2015
Excerpt: The Logitech G19s is about as nice an overall keyboard as you're going to find, and it just happens to be made for gaming. At the top of the keyboard is an adjustable LCD screen which displays all kinds of information from video frame rates and system conditions to ammo amounts and even video...
Summary: The LCD G19s seems like an amazing idea, and it could be useful for a small subset of gamers who use their computers primarily for playing multiple of World of Warcraft characters and communicating over Ventrilo.
Pros: Gorgeous LCD screen; Wonderful software
Cons: Applets not very useful; Weak illumination; Prohibitively high price; Outdated game optimization
Excerpt: Everyone needs a keyboard. From a cheap $10 Walmart special to get the job done to units costing hundreds of dollars, they’re everywhere and very essential. What should you spend on a keyboard? Well that’s entirely up to you. What do you want in a keyboard? Do you need something unique? Do you game?
Excerpt: If you ask a gun enthusiast why he needs that M4 SOPMOD to hunt squirrel, you’re asking the wrong question.

Pros: Tough, comfy keyboard with a fine aux display.
Conclusion: The G19s is in a weird spot right now when you consider its price paired up with the fact that it isn’t a mechanical keyboard. At this price point you will normally find higher end mechanical keyboards do to their increased construction costs (those cherry switches aren’t cheap).
Excerpt: Late March Logitech came out with a number of updated versions of its gaming products, including the G19s gaming keyboard. We compared and contrasted it to the original G19 model, which has been available since 2009.
Summary: The Logitech G19s is one of the best keyboards out there. However, certain features of it will only be effectively utilized by the hardest of hardcore who play the games that the Gamepanel supports.
Summary: Everything about the G19s is better than average on most of the features and outstanding with some. There are a couple, maybe a few reasons, that I wouldn't find myself using this keyboard on a regular basis.
Excerpt: One hobby I’ve always enjoyed has been video games. In fact, as I’ve mentioned before, the only way my mother claims to have been able to calm me down when I was an infant was to put me in her lap and play the original Super Mario Bros. for the Nintendo Entertainment System for 2-3 […]
Pros: Many features, fun to use.
Cons: Need for a power supply, lack of precise CPU/RAM monitoring tool, macro keys may seem awkwardly placed to some.
Summary: Once you get past the sticker shock, the Logitech G19s is a premium keyboard that delivers a white-glove gaming experience. It offers a generous number of macro buttons, a sturdy build quality, and a built-in LCD panel that's more useful than gimmicky.
Pros: Useful LCD Panel:, Look Ma, No Fingerprints!:, Sturdy Build Quality:, Lots of Macros:, Built-In USB Hub:, Automatic Profile Detection:
