[ad#review984-top]It seems like Logitech has really thought of it all when it comes to a gaming keyboard. First off it has to look good and Logitech does that with the sleek design as well as having the keys backlit by any color you like. That’s what’s really cool is that if you are getting bored of 1 color you can change to another easily.
For gamers the G-keys really come in handy, they can be programmed to certain keystrokes, macros, shortcuts, and more. This means you can program the keys for buying equipment, casting spells, and whatever else you want to set them up to do. When you’re not playing games you can have them set to shortcuts like e-mail and Firefox.
The one thing that sets this keyboard apart from others is the GamePanel LCD. It is actually a real 320 x 240 LCD that can be used for many different things. Logitech has created a few programs that run on the LCD; you can even watch YouTube clips on the LCD. While all of this is very cool I really would like Logitech to release an API so people can create their own programs for the LCD.
The G19 sells for $199 which is what you would expect to pay for a keyboard with all of these features, especially the GamePanel LCD. If you are looking for the ultimate gaming keyboard this is it!
