Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard

 

If you ask a gun enthusiast why he needs that M4 SOPMOD to hunt squirrel, you're asking the wrong question. It's not that the average squirrel in the Adirondacks is on PCP and likely to require two magazines to put down; it's that the M4 SOPMOD is a...

Tough, comfy keyboard with a fine aux display

No headphone/mic jacks; costs crazy bucks

So much attention was paid to detail (macros, for example, can record up to five simultaneous key presses, and the keyboard still works if you don’t plug in the power adapter for the display) that it’s strange that the G19 lacks adjustable risers, or...

Logitech G19 Programmable Gaming Keyboard with Color Display review

 

We were big fans of Logitech's two-color LCD-equipped G15 gaming keyboard , but we can't say we find that the addition of a color screen justifies the $200 price tag for the updated G19 model. Yes, it's neat to put a full-color image or even a video up...

Large color LCD supports digital photos and video playback; included software development kit opens LCD up to homebrew and community-made apps; 16 million color options for backlit keys; built-in USB 2.0 ports; improved macro recording capabilities...

High price could limit adoption and thus hurt community software momentum; configuration software needs consolidation.

Logitech's $200 G19 Gaming Keyboard boasts a built-in color LCD with exciting capabilities, as well as lots of little improvements over previous models. But with few apps--thus far--that take advantage of the screen in a meaningful way, the G19's...

Review: Logitech G19 Keyboard

 

Deskbound Excel ninja? Dedicated WoW adherent? Either acolyte will benefit from Logitech's fully customizable G19 keyboard.

More customizable than a box of Legos. Two self-powered USB ports. Dedicated D-pad and menu keys let you control LCD directly from the keyboard. Convenient cable management lanes carved into bottom of unit lessens clutter slightly....

Limited desktop space? This is NOT your keyboard. Price tag to match gargantuan footprint. Requires power brick to run. After it’s novelty wears off, built-in LCD becomes more of a distraction than a useful tool

The dream keyboard for PC game perfectionists

 

Keyboards are traditionally about the blandest of PC peripherals, but the Logitech G19 Keyboard is enough to set any gamer's heart aflutter.

The highlight is its tilting, colour GamePanel – an LCD screen capable of showing a variety of important game data, including VoIP communication information, CPU and RAM usage, server statistics and data specific to dozens of popular games, including...

Best gaming keyboard

 

The Logitech G19 is a high-end gaming keyboard with a built-in, 320-by-240-pixel LCD display capable of offering in-game information for over 60 titles. You can even use it to view YouTube videos. Many reviewers feel that although the G19 is expensive,...

36 programmable macros, built-in color LCD monitor, comfortable layout, adjustable backlighting

Expensive, mushy key feel (to some)

Logitech G19 Keyboard

 

Everyone's idea of a high-end gaming keyboard is different. Logitech has taken the LCD route for some time with their G15. The ability to have extra information showing while in a game can be helpful. Of course to follow up the G15 they had to really...

So the G19 has a long list of kickass features that are useful for both gamers and workaholics alike. Of course not all of them are the most helpful, and with a price of just under 200 bones the G19 is out of range of most budget minded gamers. But! as...

Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard

 

Logitech's newest gaming keyboard, the G19, has been released with much praise from reviewers. The color LCD and ability to change the backlighting color of the keys are just some of the features of this new gaming keyboard. Unfortunately, the keyboard...

How big is the G19 compared to the revised G15? They put back a second row from the G15 Rev 2's single row, so I'd assume it grew in width once again.

Logitech G19 Keyboard for Gaming Review

 

Everyone has used a keyboard, and most people use them every day for every reason, from gaming to chatting, to writing a midterm paper. While some keyboards have just a basic set of keys, others, like the Logitech G19 have more keys than anyone could...

Some keys' color can not be changed ; Price

While Logitech makes products for many different markets, the G19 keyboard is definitely aimed at gamers. Everything on it is projected to gamers, from the backlit keyboard, to the "G" keys, to the full color LCD screen that can display in-game...

Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard

 

With gamers so content with current keyboards, companies such as Logitech are trying to introduce the most feature-robust and unique models to the market, and they've pulled it off with their G19. Featuring a bright top-mounted LCD and a slew of...

Very high quality ; Comfortable ; Wide range of backlight colors ; Excellent multimedia controls ; Many programmable macro keys

Very pricey ; Current limited support for LCD applications

Installation was as simple as plugging in the USB cable and the required A/C adapter. You will get basic functionality right away with the advanced features available once you install the software. Once installed, you'll have options available to...
