Logitech G19 Keyboard for Gaming
The G19 looks like the pinnacle of gaming keyboards, but is it all that it’s cracked up to be? The first thing that pops out about this keyboard is the swivel-mounted colour LCD mini monitor on the top centre of the board. This little screen acts as a secondary information source for your gaming - it allows you to see stats, specs or act as a menuing system, depending on the game.
The G19 allows a simultaneous pressing of 5 keys before ghosting kicks in, which will be fine for most people. There’s also twelve programmable macro keys lined up in rows of two on the left hand side of the keyboard. Macros are stored in onboard memory, so you can pick it up and go.
Up against some games, this board takes a long time to get used to. This writer has been using a G19 for over two months, and still has to look when putting fingers on keys (due to the added length of the board). The key press is also quite deep; you need to push down quite far on the keys before they register. It’s not ideal, and can cause you to mess up a bit at first. This board is incredibly expensive, but in this case, I don’t think that the expense is worth it.Available from Logitech, retailing for $399.APC rating: 7/10
