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.
Excerpt: Anyone who has paid attention to what Logitech has provided in keyboards over the years has always had an eye on their boards that come with an LCD screen. I remember when they first came out - even the idea of being able to see what the PC was doing, live right on your keyboard, always seemed like a great concept, even if the LCD technology then wasn't exactly great.
Summary: The reviewer at DigitalTrends.com agrees that the price is high and adds that the keys have a "mushy" feel. Gizmodo.com offers a review accompanied by a number of product photos showcasing the keyboard's features. The keyboard has been around for two years now, and some of the reviews are getting older, but it stacks up well even in more-recent looks.
Spyshot: Logitech’s Covetable New G19 Gaming Keyboard
13 May 2010
Excerpt: Engadget China are claiming that this is Logitech’s new G18 gaming keyboard, which would make sense as a name except for the fact that by convention Logitech’s gaming peripherals have always had odd numbers. So, I am going against Engadget China and siding with Crunchgear’s Devin Coldewey on this one. It is probably the G19 and it most certainly looks hot. note the full-color LCD screen top-center and the large complement of macro keys on [...
Summary: W e want to bring you more of the stuff that you're into, so let us know (with regards to gaming) if you're interested in more PC gaming stuff like the G19 Keyboard or if you'd prefer console-based stuff. Starting back in 2007 with the G15, Logitech’s line of hardcore computer gaming keyboards has proved to be both critically successful and wildly popular.
Summary: So much attention was paid to detail (macros, for example, can record up to five simultaneous key presses, and the keyboard still works if you don’t plug in the power adapter for the display) that it’s strange that the G19 lacks adjustable risers, or headphone/mic jacks next to the dual USB 2.0 ports. But those are annoying but manageable deficits in an otherwise precise and beautifully executed slab of overkill.
Pros: Tough, comfy keyboard with a fine aux display.
