Nice but cheaper are available,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech 920-000978 G19 Gaming Keyboard (Accessory)
I was building a top end gaming machine so wanted a decent keyboard to go with my new system. I wanted a keyboard that looked nice and had illuminated keys. I was drawn to this model over others as it offered you the ability to set the keys colour to any setting of your choice rather than the default blue or red than most offer. The screen looked like a gimmick but i felt it was worth a try as there might be a few uses for it now or in the future.
- Nice design with good build quality.
- Good key feedback and feel
- Vast array of key colour combination options
- Occasionally the screen can be a useful addition. For eg music playback, Clock and Cpu load.
- Large quantity of dedicated macro keys.
- Highly customisable driver software and keyboard.
- Limited availability of applets for the screen.
- Key illumination could do with being a little brighter.
- Keyboard USB ports are very stiff.
- Screen control keys are illuminated amber and not your chosen colour.
- Screen controls are stiff and hard to press.
I hope that the availability of applets improves for the keyboard with time. The keyboard has been out for quite a while already and I still struggled to find any apps for it and especially ones that were useful and weren't a gimmick. This keyboard is good but if you are not interested in backlight illumination or general customisation then there are many far cheaper options available.
