It is difficult to find the best wireless mechanical gaming keyboard the Logitech G915 ($250). This is an elegant and eye-catching character to the device with the satisfaction of mechanical keys, the cool, low-profile keycaps, and a full bar to the media, there are two types of wireless connectivity, and generous in the life of the battery. What’s more, it’s not that it is a model without the ten-keys, it does not require batteries, AA batteries, and it doesn’t require the annoying shortcuts on the keyboard to record a macro. This is the Logitech G915 Review.
In addition to the lack of a wrist rest, and there’s very little to criticise with the Logitech G915. It is everything that I would like to see a wireless mechanical gaming keyboard, with no compromises required. However, $250 is a lot of money, even though to do so is a gorgeous model, then weigh your options accordingly and if you can’t live without a wireless set-up.
Logitech G915 Review: Design
When I saw it for the first time, G915, an engineer, held up a penny on the side of the keyboard to the chassis, in order to show that the currency was wider than the pad itself. I thought it was a trick of the camera, but it wasn’t. When I first got my hands on the G915, I held it up against my own money in my pocket, and I realized that it was, in fact, better have something to eat. This is an impressive feat for a completely mechanical model.
The keyboard itself is beautiful, with a brushed metal finish over a durable plastic chassis. Each key has an ultra-slim keycap, along with a little mechanical switch, as well as the stunning Roccat Vulcan. There is a layout of the macro keys on the far left, as well as three of the macro-profile keys and a macro record key, above the F1-F4 keys. Up in the F4-F8 keys, you will see the buttons for the dongle and USB and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as the Mode of the Game, and the lighting, the RGB brightness.
And in the upper right hand corner there is a button in the media section, complete with a volume control. Every keyboard needs one, and all the buttons work fine in-G915. One of the comments on here, it’s the five extra buttons in the left-hand side is only useful for the majority of the players in the practice. By including these two buttons extend the length of the keyboard to 18.5 inches, a full 1 inch longer than some of the other full-size gaming keyboards on the market. It can make a difference to the space on your desk is limited.
In addition, the LogitehG915 does not have the support of the wrist, which is a problem if you are dealing with a slim, low-profile keyboard. Even with the use of a third-party wrist rests on it is not necessarily a solution, since most of it is larger than the pad itself.
For the G915 features a new type of switch – or, rather, he uses three of them. So how players will be able to purchase the Products from keyboards with his decision to Cherry MX Red, Blue, or Brown switches, and they can also choose between a Linear, GL, GL, Touch, and the GL’s Clicky keys on the G915. This low-profile mechanical keys are designed to give you the ultimate in travel, the key of Logitech’s Romer-G switches-but in a much smaller, more elegant design.
As a Blues fan, I have the GL, Clicky, and have enjoyed my experience in working with these parameters, the maximum up to now. Each item has a key pitch and 2.7 mm, and a controlled spacing of 1.5 mm, and a controlled force of 50 grams, but the feel of each and every parameter in it is a little bit different. GL Linear, it’s quiet, and it requires that you press it all the way down to the register command, with the GL the Touch it’s quiet, and it starts before you hit the ground, and the GL Clicky is loud and goes on before it hits the ground.
It is worth pointing out that the Clicky buttons seem to be a little more quiet – or, at the very least, it’s a little bit less intense than the Cherry Blues. I’m in my head, so I asked him if I should trade it for a quieter border. He said that it sounded like “white noise” to him, which has earned a lot of praise when the sound of your keyboard on the go.
It takes some time to get used to the low-profile switch, yet. In a typing test, I scored a 102 words per minute with 95% accuracy in the G915, compared to 108 words per minute with 98% accuracy on my usual Logitech G613. The smaller the keycaps makes it easier to press a button on the side by accident, and the Clicky keys that feel a bit more sturdy than the Brown style, the Romer-Gs.
Logitech G915 Review: Features
For the G915 is a run on the Logitech The G-Hub software, which is very good as these will. You can set a variety of color effects, key lighting, reactive rainbow, which are transferred from the keyboard when you type. You can also record the macros and set up profiles for individual games and programs.
Unlike some of the competitors offerings, with the G915 is not allowing you to re-program every button on the device. But, as you can up to fifteen extra macro keys (five keys for the extras, and three macro profiles) to work with, so I’m not sure what you need. You can also change the keys on which you want to disable in the Game, which is to reduce the risk of the tab out of the game by accident.
In addition, the higher spring of the G915 is a wireless connection. You can connect to your device through a USB dongle (which works perfectly) or Bluetooth (which works perfectly fine – it all depends on how their devices deal with Bluetooth connections). In theory, this means that you can connect your device to a PC and a smartphone at the same time, or any combination that you like. The switching between these devices is not as easy as the push of a button, and the connection of the work of hundreds of feet in the distance.
Logitech G915 Review: Performance
For the G915 takes care of each and every game I’ve ever played with easily. Every time I turned on a particular skill on Overwatch, or to pick an army in the original StarCraft: Remastered, or is discharged for a spell in Baldur’s Gate: the Siege of Dragonspear, the G915 reviewed my commands with precision, accuracy, and out of the box. For those players who have been playing competitively, I would imagine that the low profile keycaps you can to help them hit key quickly and repeatedly, and no amount of retry time, with more options.
The Service Life Of The Battery
And then there is the life of the battery. Logitech says that the device plays for up to 12 days (8 hours per day) in the image functions turned on, or up to 135 days, with the lights turned off. It was a challenge to measure, these these numbers for us, because we’ve got less than a week to read the device. However, I have to drain about 10% of the batteries in the keyboard and after two days of moderate use, so your numbers sound about right. Even better, the Load is not going to ruin the experience, because it is a keyboard is a device that is stationary in any way.
Logitech G915 Review: Conclusion
When Logitech released the first wireless mechanical keyboard, the G613, I was intrigued but also a little impressed. He didn’t have the battery pack without the light of RGB, or the volume of the wheel. Now, with the G915 has all of these things, in addition to an incredible, eye-catching design. However, it is difficult to get around the price of the G915 – you could get a keyboard with a cord with most of the same features for about $100 less. I’m not sure if I would want to spend that much money on a keyboard, especially since, unlike a mouse, is a device that is stationary. The wireless connectivity is a luxury, not something that is going to change their level of performance.
However, such a wired mechanical gaming keyboard, the G915 nails it on almost all the functions properly. If you are serious about a neat gaming facility, and without sacrificing any of the functionality, it’s the peripherals that you you you you you you want to be the center of attention.
