Logitech G915 Gaming Keyboard Review

Aside from the missing wrist (and really, this thin keyboard is as expensive as this), there is very little to criticize in the G915. This is all we want to see on a wireless gaming keyboard, and no compromise is needed. However, $ 250 is a lot of money, even for a luxury model, so consider your decision if you think you can survive without wireless settings.

The design

When Logitech first showed me the G915 via video chat, an engineer raised a dime next to the keyboard chassis, to show that the coin was more extensive than the device. I’m sure this is a webcam trick, but it’s not. When we held the G915 in our hand, we raised it to our pocket and realized that it was indeed thinner. That’s an impressive achievement for a fully mechanical model.

The keyboard itself is excellent, with a metal-style finish on a sturdy plastic chassis. Each button has an ultrathin button cap on top of a small mechanical switch, like the fantastic Robo Vulcan. There is a macro key column on the far left, as well as three macro-professional keys & a macro note key on top of the F1 to F4 keys. above the F4 to F8 keys, you will find buttons for USB dongles and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as Game Mode (which deactivates individual buttons during play) and RGB light brightness.

Key

The G915 uses a new type of switch – or, more precisely, uses three. Just as gamers can buy a Corsair keyboard with a Cherry MX Red, Brown, or Blue switch of their choice, they can also choose between the GL Linear, GL Tactile, and GL Clicky switches on the G915. The new low-profile mechanical switch aims to provide as much key travel as the Romer-G Logitech switch but in a much smaller and more stylish package.

As a Blues fan, we set ourselves up with GL Clicky and have enjoyed our experience with them so far. Each switch has the main trip of 2.7 millimeters, an actuation distance of 1.5 mm, and an actuation strength of 50 gf, but the nuances of each switch differ slightly. GL Linear is silent and requires that you press it fully to register the command, Tactile GL is silent and activated before you reach the bottom, and GL Clicky is noisy and enabled before you reach the bottom.

Performance

G915 handles every game we throw easily. Whenever we activate special abilities in Overwatch or choose troops in StarCraft: Remastered, G915 parses our orders accurately and instantly. For gamers who play competitively, we imagine low-profile button caps can help them slam important buttons quickly and repeatedly without the spring-back time like a more massive switch.

The Point

When Logitech make its first wireless mechanical keyboard, the G613, we were intrigued, but also a little underwhelmed. It don’t have a rechargeable battery, or RGB lighting or volume wheels. Now, the G915 has all that, plus a beautiful design. However, it’s hard to overcome the G915 price tag – you can get a wired keyboard with most of the same features for around $ 100.

We not sure we’d spend enough on a keyboard, mainly because, unlike a mouse, it’s a stationary device. Wireless connectivity is a richness, not something that will change your performance level.

 

The Bad > No wrist rest, Very expensive

The Good > Excellent key switches, Beautiful design, Robust software, Discrete media keys

Conclusion > choose the Logitech G915 if you need a top-of-the-line wireless gaming keyboard with no compromises. However, avoid it if you can’t stomach the $250 price tag.
