PRODUCT PICTORAL AND WALKTHROUGH
Moving off to the left of the LCD, you find a single switch. This is a Windows Key Disable switch, which does exactly as it says.
To the left and right of the LCD display, eagle-eyed readers would have seen the USB logo. There are indeed two USB ports on the back of the keyboard. While not suitable for powered USB devices such as webcams, they're a nice touch.
Ahhhh……now we get to the goodies of the G15. The bank of 18 programmable gaming keys. These are labeled G1 through G18. Above those keys are three buttons which switch between three sets of programmed commands. Essentially, this gives you 54 programmable keys. Finally, there's a fourth, slightly larger button that allows you to program macros “on the fly”.
Flipping the keyboard over, you'll see a series of grooves, which lead to the USB ports on the backside. These can be used to route a cable from, say, a USB headset from the port to the front of the keyboard, or they can provide a handy cord-retention setup for your corded gaming mouse.
All done ogling the goods? Let's put ‘em to work, shall we?
