It worked throughout the countless gaming marathons throughout my earlier gaming days and in all seriousness must have lasted at minimum 14000 hours of hardcore PC gaming in FPS, RTS and MMORPG's, I cannot express in words how much I enjoyed this keyboard but it sadly had to be replaced as over the years the windows keys stopped functioning completely (permanently disabled), the media keys stopped working, the ASD keys became extremely easy to press (difference of 40%) and the spacebar broke making it rather difficult to use. I endured all of the more than appropriate wear and tear I caused to this product and am extremely fond of it. I have since replaced it with a Corsair K70 (Black / Red version) which I did partially to jump on the mechanical key craze and I cannot be happier with what I've purchased, if the Logitech G710+ was a bit more inexpensive I would consider purchasing that however at it's price point and in it's single mechanical switch offering I decided against Logitech this time.

I would highly recommend this keyboard or any of it's replacements as it worked flawlessly for me for years and even when partially broken it was still a pleasure to use.

HASH(0xa70fd018) out of 5 stars Excellent Gamer Keyboard, Slighty less Handy for day to day Nov. 22 2007
By LPMiller - Published on Amazon.com
There seems to be some reviews by users who do not actually own the G15.

I do.

As a gamer, I only need about 6 macro buttons, and they work just fine for that. The orange glow may not be quite as bright as I would like, but looks nice and does help gaming in the dark when you get the fingers on the wrong keys. The LCD is handy just in telling me the time if I'm playing some game that doesn't support the G15 (no more playing till 1AM accidentally) and in the games it does support, it's actually very handy - especially so in Lord Of The Rings Online or WoW, laying out stats in an easy to see way.

The downside to this kind of keyboard is you do miss some things. No volume knob, though you do get buttons. Been using a knob/wheel for years, so I'm really missing it. No calculator button, though I suppose I could make a macro for it. None of your usual Home or Web or buttons of that nature, though you do have a nice big satisfying mute button, and another to kill the Windows Button. Typing is fairly smooth, though since Logitech kept the New G15 the same size as a standard keyboard, certain buttons are smaller, like Tab, and it does take a second to get used to it. But it's not clicky at all, and is in fact one the quietest keyboards I've ever typed on.

Overall, I am very pleased with this keyboard after about a month of use. I could wish for a volume knob or calculator key. It took me a week before I realized when I was turning down the volume, it was actually showing on the little LCD display. It's a little quirky. But it's very handy for the gamer, without taking up the space of the older model.

HASH(0xa70fd420) out of 5 stars In defense of this massively underrated work of art Nov. 25 2007
By Warflango - Published on Amazon.com
The title pretty much sums up my opinion of this keyboard and the general opinion of a few of the users who have reviewed it so far. Now, I normally try to present my opinions without mention of those of other peoples', but in this case, after reading some of the other reviews of this item I really feel I must make an exception.

First of all, I'd like to point out that just because an older version of this board had a few features that were cut doesn't automatically make this one suck. Secondly, I'd like to point out that this board technically has 18 macro keys if you take into consideration that it has three different modes, and on top of that an unlimited number of profiles you can switch between with the software. Third of all, I'd like to remind everyone that a company's policies and its products are not the same thing, and should not be treated as such.

Anyway, I sincerely don't mean for this review simply to be about bashing other peoples' opinions, so now I'd like to get to explaining why I do like this keyboard. For one thing, the LCD is a lot more useful than people are giving it credit for. Combined with Trillian, answering ANY instant message from within ANY program without having to alt-tab becomes a piece of cake, which is especially nice for anyone who runs fullscreen applications and IMs a lot. The same thing goes for media playing; whenever you have a media player open it automatically switches to an iPod-like view, which is also handy when in fullscreen.

The macro keys and modes are another huge plus. They aren't limited to just emulating a few keystrokes; they can also act like shortcuts, enter a block of text, or even be assigned to a script (I haven't messed with scripts that much, but they're in Lua and are fairly easy to write. There's full API documentation included as well).

Those are the main benefits for me; there's a couple of other neat things, like the switch to turn off the windows key and the USB ports in the back, but those aren't as major. As for durability, I don't know how other people have been abusing their boards to make them break, but I've even dropped mine a couple times and there's barely a scratch on it.

Overall, what I'm trying to say is that it's simply a great investment, especially if you're intending to buy one good keyboard for the long-run.

HASH(0xa70edf9c) out of 5 stars Looks great, great features, and lousy feel July 21 2010
By A. Jenista - Published on Amazon.com
It sure looks awesome all lit up, and I like the little LCD which appears high tech too. And the build quality looks decent too, externally. Can't complain about the macro software (even the os x one, which I am using) or about the layout. I have one, and it's suitable for the kids, but not me.

Here's my beef with Logitech: The number one purpose of a decent gaming keyboard is rapid and precise response. And that's where this keyboard falls flat on its face. This is a non-mechanical, rubber dome membrame keyboard (examples of mechanical switch gaming keyboards are the Deck Gaming Keyboards, Steel Series 7G, or I-rocks KR-6230-KB). So what does this rubber-dome membrane "thingy" mean?

It means this keyboard uses two plastic membranes with circuit traces printed on them. There is a rubber dome membrane sitting atop, that the keys plunge down upon to make the key contact. To properly register a key, the key is squished down into the rubber dome until it collapses and the membranes contact. It's a very inexpensive way to build a keyboard, compared to the mechanical switches, but it's going to make your game suffer.

1. Key press/release latency
2. Poor tactile feedback
3. Keys unstable in movement
4. Rubber domes wear unevenly (keys WASD and whatever ability you spam, for example)
5. premature breakdown

All of these are remedied by using mechanical switch technology, like the competitors listed above. With all the other great features from the largest keyboard manufacturer on earth, with the best drivers and software, we should all be asking the question, why they are building this keyboard for a user base that is all about accuracy, speed, and reliabilty?

I think the answer was that until recently there was little user education on this topic, and there were no strong competitors in the gaming market.

That's all changed - but will Logitech rise to the changes in the market? It remains to be seen.

HASH(0xa70fd498) out of 5 stars Buyer beware Feb. 21 2008
By Neil Womack - Published on Amazon.com
I am disappointed in Logitech after using this keyboard. I have the older G15. While the keyboard itself has great functionality (if a little overkill for most gamers), beware - while Logitech offers a 3-5 year warranty on ALL of its other keyboards, it only gives a one-year warranty to its two most expensive offerings, the G11 and G15. I found this out the hard way after my keys started acting funny. Out of the blue one day a couple of keys started randomly typing out incorrect or extra characters (for instance, when I hit the X key I get X: on my screen, I have to delete the colon), and my left shift key somehow got mapped to F9 so that any time I would try to run in a FPS it would reload a savegame. This is pretty much a deal-breaker for any gamer.

I take very good care of my hardware so I was quite surprised, tried the keyboard on another computer without any Logitech software installed and it did the same thing, indicating a hardware problem with the board. A search of Logitech's forums found that several people have had this problem, and it seems there is no fix but to send in for warranty replacement - if you're still in the warranty period. Although ultimately I only have myself to blame for not paying close enough attention to the warranty terms, after paying $85 for a keyboard I expect better than a one-year warranty, especially when their $20 keyboards go for 3-5 years. The fact that Logitech chose to offer a shorter warranty on this product is, to me, an indication that they were aware of quality issues and opted to act in their own interest by offering a shorter warranty instead of taking care of their most lucrative customers. That's just bad business. While almost all of my PC hardware is Logitech and I am happy with the quality of most of their products, I am extremely disappointed in them after this experience. I now have an $85 paperweight because I can't even use it to type accurately. The long-term life of these keyboards seems suspect, and I have a feeling that's why they suddenly introduced a newer model.

HASH(0xa70fd81c) out of 5 stars What a change! Dec 10 2008
By Russell M. Van Tassell - Published on Amazon.com
First off, I've only owned this keyboard for about five hours, now... and already, I'm astounded. Up until a few hours ago, I had been using a Microsoft ergonomic keyboard -- and that served me many long good years (until I was stupid/clumsy enough to spill hot coffee in to it).

Anyway, this keyboard has a GOOD feel to it... as an old Sun person, it's a feel I'd expect from a high-quality keytronics keyboard - good firm keys with a "sharp" key click, but smooth and solid down to the bottom of the stroke. The keys are a little bit smaller than I'm used to, even though part of my daily grind includes a laptop (but I have a desktop keyboard and, as I said, my home machine was an ergonomic keyboard that I enjoyed using).

The backlighting on the keys is "pleasant" -- it's not terribly bright (particularly in a dark room with a bright monitor / white background). It IS bright enough, however, to be able to glance down so-as to "clarify" where your hand position is... I don't think I'd want to be looking at it if I didn't at least have a somewhat reasonable touch-type ability (I'm not a touch typist/purist, but I also don't need to look at my fingers once I'm "set" on the keyboard, either).

As far as integration goes, so far I'm impressed with the functionality... simply being able to glance down and see things like CPU load, RAM usage, and clock are nice (no more looking for the systray on Windoze). Furthermore, the keyboard integrated directly in to EverQuest II and Ventrillo *without* me really needing to do A THING (for the gamers, that includes nice hooks that essentially move part of your UI down on to the keyboard -- such as character stats for your MMO or channel/talker info for Vent). Also, any quick search on the net would seem to reveal just how-much-more really is possible with this keyboard with "support by the masses."

My only real "critique" with this keyboard is the fact that, even with the keyboard "jacks" extended, the keyboard fees like it's laying "flat" across the desk. Again, having run slanted laptop "cooling" pads and ergonomic keyboards for a good number of years, I feel I'm more used to the numbers being "higher" than, say, the space-bar. However, I think I can deal with this...

I also like the fact that this keyboard comes equipped with /two/ USB ports in the top of it... now between it and my flat panel, I have four ports within easy reach for the inevitable memory stick I have in my hands (though honestly with three monitors on my desk, the ports in the side of the monitor aren't always easily reachable -- so these are a welcome addition for me).

So, after only a few hours... I see myself liking this keyboard -- and here I thought I'd "always" use an ergonomic/split keyboard (even to the point that I have run separate keypads at work). I've always wanted a good backlit keyboard and this fits the bill nicely... can't wait to see what else I can do with it!
