Summary: I have been a fan boy of the Logitech G-Series keyboards for many years. My G15 is still very much functioning with no issues. i just figured it was time for a change. Went out and purchased the G700s Mouse and the G19s Keyboard and love the mouse(albiet Battery life is a bit short) but this is a keyboard review so i digress.
Pros: Smaller form factor then prior G series keyboards, Customizable Backlighting is Nice., Powered USB Slots that are together versus on either side of the prior units screen
Cons: The video display has been unimpressive with lack of functionality so far., the extra row of G keys (programable) seems to have shifted the the keys.
Summary: My only choice is to RMA it and have to deal with the "new" keys again and have to break them in. I will probally just buy the s version and swap the membranes and just return it to logitech
Pros: I do like the LCD although it only has 2 functions i use: fraps and afterburner. I wish i could access the software to change the led's though the menu but i cant. A lot of features too and it is decently comfortable.
Cons: When i first got it i had to press down the buttons all the way for them to activate, the slightest "up" would cause the key to not resigster. Now this thing is nice and broken in That is not a problem, however 1/4 of all the times i boot my PC the keyboard will turn on, transfer profiles and do ok (ii have all the software needed installed) but sometimes the keys dont work, so i have to unplug and replug it in, not a big deal really. But somtimes (happens every week ...
Summary: The G19s is one of the better keyboards I have owned in years, Installation: Installation is a basic plug and play, though if you want to change the back lighting or set your keys up for macros or game commands you will need to install the gaming software that Logitech has on there site here: [...] This program will let you set up the keyboard to your liking and allow you to configure the LCD screen.
Summary: The keyboard is very nice and it work very well with other Logitech G product. backlight work great and it is easy to set predefined colour. I would give a 5 stars for this part of the product. The programable key G1 to G12 can be annoying when you don't use them. and it is the only key that can be program. would give 4 stars for this part. The major problem Is the LCD Screen. It work well and have a good resolution for what it is.
Pros: The backlight is great., Can change colour., Very confortable., Nice design.
Cons: Not enought content and option for the LCD., Programable key can be annoying sometime.
Summary: Not bad, but not great either. It's just okay for me. I'm a gamer, not hardcore, but I game! I spend a good amount of time typing and gaming. The feel of the keys is a bit clunky in that they don't have the nice spring that you would find a mechanical keyboard with cherry mx blue switches to have. The M1, M2, and M3 buttons don't work for me, even after I set them in the gaming software dashboard - the colors stay stuck on whatever M3 was set to.
Summary: Picked this up to replace an old Logitech keyboard. The backlighting is cool and the usb's are great for my setup. My only problem is the price is a little high for what you get and the side keys can be annoying if you don't use them. Overall happy, would recommend getting it on sale.
Pros: Good Quality, LCD works well, Colors are Cool, Keys can be useful
Summary: Don't get this keyboard try the newer version the G19S or the G510 but not this keyboard
Pros: G-Keys 12 keys with 3 different profiles to choose from makes most gaming alot easier i'm an mmo gamer and they keys really help. USB Ports 2 USB ports at the top of the keyboard i plug my mouse and phone in to. Back Light makes it easy to see the keys at night.
Cons: Will randomly give out, The screen will start flashing the usb ports will stop working they keys will still work but that's it, I've had to send my keyboard back once already because of this and i have to do it again because it just broke again
Cons: Tis is only my opinion but I didn't care for the key layout. The G-Keys were in the way for me. I found mysel hitting them for things like CTRL, SHIFT and ESC...it is something that takes some getting used to but I use it for work and play so it didn't work for me.
Summary: I hope Logitech can fix both of these issues at the same time.
Pros: This is my third G-series keyboard, with the first two being the G15 and the G510. The backlighting is a little bit better on this model than on my previous keyboard and there is an on/off button to turn off all lights and LCD. The keyboard is a little bit higher up than my previous models so I'll have to get used to that. The bottom (belong spacebar) doesn't have the cheap paint that rubs off (I think) so this particular model might be able to keep it's finish a lot ...
Cons: Now comes the bad news. There are a couple of issues with the software. The problem lies with the LGS (gaming software) that controls everything. It's designed to be a unifying program for Logitech G-series gaming peripherals, which is great... but everything is dependent on a single program (Keyboard, Headset, Mouse) means they are all linked to the same program. Allow me to explain further. I recently bought the Logitech G930 Wireless Headset a few months ago, and i...
