4.0 out of 5 stars
Tricky to talk about, May 9 2010
While there is no arguing that this is an expensive keyboard, most people will probably be asking if it's worth it.
Out of the box, I'd have to say no. I have experienced several issues with having my cellphone too close to the onboard USB ports causing the keyboard to...get ready for this...RESTART.
Apparently it's a known issue as a quick search on Logitech's support forums brings up several posts on the subject.
Their is no real documentation on how to change the keyboards back-light colours, so you'll have to use Google for that. (Pro-tip: Check the Logitech G-Series Key Profiler application)
However, if you can get around that stuff...it is a truly amazing piece of technology capable of watching YouTube videos, or even XviD's (Although without sound) on the tiny screen itself. (Can't imagine why you'd want to do that really...).
The default Logitech applications aren't overly impressive as they include an IMAP/POP3 client, standard clock/date apps, etc...
Anybody who buys this keyboard will definitely want to look into an application called LCDHost, which allows true customization of that little LCD screen. (Disclaimer: I have no link to the aforementioned application or creator, I'm just a happy user/fan of it.)
Speaking as a former G15 v1 owner, I have no regrets in purchasing this keyboard as it is solid and performs as well if not better then the original G15. The inclusion of onboard USB 2.0 ports is defiantly handy.
So what are you waiting for? Buy one already!
