PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
The Logitech® G15 keyboard offers gamers an unprecedented level of in-game information, programmability and control. Its adjustable-tilt, backlit LCD display shows you crucial information during game play, and lets you set timers to keep track of game events.
Adjustable-tilt, backlit LCD display
The GamePanel™ LCD shows you crucial system information during gameplay*.
* Requires application support.
Folding LCD panel
Closes completely for storage or transportation. Take it with you to LAN parties for that extra gaming edge.
Three brightness levels, for playing in darkened rooms.
Programmable G keys
Use the 18 programmable 'G keys' to execute common keystrokes or complex macros.
The 18 programmable "G Keys" allow you to execute macros—like casting spells in World of Warcraft—with a single button press, and the backlit keys are great for lights-out play. The G15 also features a switch that turns off the 'Windows' key, so hitting that button accidentally won't end your game.
The Logitech® G15 keyboard is completely customizable to help you play better. Try it and you'll never go back to a standard keyboard.
View game stats. Use the GamePanel™ LCD to view game stats, create new macros, and keep track of important system information without leaving the game. The LCD panel closes completely for transport and storage.
Play in the dark . Illuminated characters are easily visible in both bright- and low-light conditions, with three levels of backlighting for late-night gaming sessions.
Create and save macros with a press of a button. 18 fully programmable “G Keys” have three shift states each, for 54 possible custom macros per game
Eliminate cable hassles! Intelligently route mouse, headset, or other cables using convenient channels under the keyboard.
Record custom key sequences. Make on-the-fly additions to your key programming set with Macro Record button.
Watch and listen. Convenient media keys for easy management of audio and video playback.
The Man In Brown delivered my G15 promptly, and I was eager to get into the package. As usual, Logitech's packaging is both eye-catching and informative. You are not left guessing what you are purchasing, if you buy at a local shop or chain store.
After ripping open the box like a (gaming) monkey in heat, you'll find a rather simple package: the G15, a detachable wrist rest, an installation CD, and a small instruction booklet.
