Setup and Usage
Interesting enough this keyboard needs an external power source so go ahead and attach the power adapter and plug it in. The go ahead and install the software before you plug in the USB cable. Once you have installed the software you can plug in the USB cable and everything should be good. After the keyboard is in working order you can go into the key profiler.
Here you can assign all of the G-keys their specific values. As I said before the M1, M2, and M3, keys allow for 3 different profiles. Each “M” profile allows you to change to keys illumination color to any color you want. This is really cool since most backlit keyboards have 1 or 2 different color choices, here the colors are endless.
When you are assigning the G-keys you not only can assign a keystroke you can also assign a macro, function, shortcut, text block, or even a script. This is really cool especially when it comes to games that use macros for buying weapons or casting spells. Another cool thing is that you can scan for games installed on your computer and the key profiler will automatically setup profiles for those games.
One of the coolest things about this keyboard is the LCD, it’s not often you are going to find a keyboard with a full color LCD on it. Logitech has created programs that run on this LCD; some of them include a RSS reader, clock, movie viewer, media display, and even a YouTube player. These applications can be turned on and off and also configured via the Logitech LCD manager.
Here is a video showing some of the features of the keyboard.
