[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wow did I end up falling in love with this keyboard. The satisfying clicky keys have ideal travel, gives the impression I can type much faster than in reality. Our AlienWare Aurora R9 desktop came with wired peripherals. This wireless keyboard, along with separate wireless mouse, allow us to connect the PC to a 75-inch Sony and operate it from the sofa. Setup was easy as connecting micro-usb to computer to charge [note to Logitech, its 2020 and no usb-c ], plugging LIGHTSPEED dongle into usb slot, and voila, sit back and enjoy. 3 models of Logitech RGB mechanical keyboards GL Clicky Switch GL Linear Switch GL Tactile Switch PROS ——— + incredible 40 hour battery life + color strobe is bright and sexy + 5 adjustable brightness levels + plug-and-play wireless setup + LIGHTSPEED and Bluetooth 5.0 + solid build quality and weight + low-profile mechanical switches + Windows/Mac (though lack Mac keys) + Uber “clicky” feel + useful scroll wheel + wired and wireless usage + media control shortcut keys CONS ——— -fixed backlight time-out -auto-wake requires registered keyclick (not gyroscope) -micro-USB (not USB-C) -Logitech G Hub Software (not fully baked) -TKL models lack number pad -price compared to competition CONCLUSION ——————— If you are in the market for a super fast LIGHTSPEED RGB keyboard for your Windows PC (or Mac) and are not opposed to spending a bit more, nor put off by micro-usb charging, then look no farther than this amazing Logitech keyboard.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- I LOVE This Keyboard. The Best I've Tried.- 27 juin 2020
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] So, lets break down this ridiculously long title. Logitech G915 TKL is the product name. TKL stands for tenkeyless which means it doesn’t come with a number pad. Which is great for “eSport Athletes” as it gives your mouse more room to do its thang. There is also the Logitech G915 which is the full-size version of this keyboard that comes with a number pad. Both come with LightSpeed Wireless. Which in short is super-fast wireless tech that will allow you to game at the same levels as wired keyboards. RGB means it supports 16.7 million colors that you can adjust for each key. Last mechanical means the switch it uses. This keyboard supports linear, clicky, and tactile. More on that later. PACKAGING: Starting off with the packaging which I don’t always mention. But in this case, this product comes in at a premium price which means you want a premium opening experience. Which I am happy to report is excellent. It’s probably the best keyboard opening experience I’ve ever had. With it being a TKL wireless keyboard you may be traveling with it which means you can use this box which is also small and compact to ensure nothing damages it. LET’S GET NERDY: Keyboards are usually simple. You plug them in VIA USB and then you type away. The most complicated they get is by adding Bluetooth and trying to figure out which switches they are using (membrane, mechanical, or optical)? But this one is an over achiever and comes with both Bluetooth and LIGHTSPEED wireless. Along with your choice of three different low-profile mechanical switches. It comes with Bluetooth 5.0. To connect to the Bluetooth is simple. It DOES NOT require a dongle to be plugged into the device. There are two buttons on the top left of the keyboard. The first got hit by Voldemort and got imbued with magical powers and has a lightning bolt with waves behind it for LIGHTSPEED. The second right next to it is the Bluetooth logo. If you have not paired the keyboard to another device before once you press the Bluetooth button it will go into pairing mode while flashing blue. Then you go through the normal process. I did it on my iPad and iPhone and it had me put in a code on the keyboard followed by the enter key to fully pair it. If you want to pair it to another device, you hold down the Bluetooth button until it flashes (the lights on the keyboard will flash) and then you can connect to a new device. However, if you want to connect back to the first device you need to forget the connection on both devices and then go through the pairing process from scratch again. For my iPad I had to forget the device, turn off Bluetooth, turn it back on and then it would work. Which is disappointing at this price point. I would expect it to be smoother in transitioning from device to device. Last up we have the low-profile mechanical switches. Logitech calls their version “Low Profile GL Switches” which are incredibly similar to Kailh low profile chocolate switches. Which they worked in conjunction with. The only differences I was able to see between the two switches were that the GL switches have slightly lower overall travel at 2.7 mm compared to 3.0 mm. They come in three flavors. Red for linear, Brown’s which are tactile, and white clicky switch. All three actuate at 1.5 mm with a total travel of 2.7 mm with 50 grams of force. I think they are rated at 70 million clicks. They are mechanical switches which means that they do have a debounce delay and can develop double clicks. The Kailh chocolate switch has a debounce delay window of up to 5 ms so I assume these do as well. BUILD QUALITY/AESTHETICS: It sports a brushed 5052-aluminum alloy top plate that joins a steel-reinforced base. The bottom, top, and back are all made of high-quality plastic. With a lot of pressure, I was able to get just a very slight amount of bending. It feels ridiculously premium. The best I have ever felt. On the top right you have an aluminum-crafted volume wheel. This too feels incredible. It uses a light amount of force to scroll with. It has mild/moderate amount of pressure which is equal throughout the whole thing. It scrolls infinitely. If you shake it left to right, there is ever so slightly some wiggle. You cannot press it. Going left to right. You have your LIGHTSPEED toggle which if you press while it is on LIGHTSPEED will notify you of battery level via the battery light. Which changes color based on how much battery life you have left. Next to that is the Bluetooth, then Game Mode, then Brightness control. Which comes in at five stages (100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, 0%). They are covered in a rubber material. They take a mild to moderate amount of pressure to actuate with a tactile bump that feel remarkably like membrane keys. They are not even when pressing down on them. So, if you come in on the side you can feel one side depress before the other. The RGB lighting on it isn’t equal like they are for the normal switches but just as accurate as the rest of the board. Overall, this is the worst part of the keyboard for me and I just don’t think it fits well with the premium feel of the rest of the keyboard. Up next is the keys themselves. They are coated with oleophobic which is meant to minimize fingerprints. They feel good but they seem to wiggle a bit more than other keyboards. Your F1 – F4 keys are used for macros. With F4 being the recording and F1, F2, and F3 storing that info. In the top middle of the keyboard you have the battery indicator and notification if you are on caps lock or not. You cannot and I repeat cannot edit what each key does on this keyboard. You can only edit the F keys. So, for example if I want my right arrow button to be left mouse click I cannot do that. But I can assign left mouse click to be F12. On the back you can raise the keyboard at either 4 or 8 degrees. It also has a small slot that you can slide the dongle into. It does not come with a wrist rest. I don’t know why you would need one though as this is so low profile that a wrist rest wouldn’t really do anything more than what your desk is. Some shortcuts that you can do on the keyboard are by holding the FN key you can press F1, F2, or F3 to go through onboard memory profiles which include lighting. You also have two dedicated lighting profiles that you can access by holding down the lighting key and pressing “8” or “9”. To record a macro you press FN and F4. PERFORMANCE: I chose the clicky variant as that is my favorite type of switch. The clicks themselves are quiet. Especially, in comparison to Blues or Razers Clicky Opto-mechanical switch. They sound the same as the Opto-Mechanical switch just a lot quieter. I don’t think this would bother people in an office environment. As for the tactile bump it is very light. To the point I can barely feel it. I would have preferred this to be a bit more noticeable. For the LIGHTSPEED WIRELESS. On Human Benchmark I scored the same whether I was in Wireless or Wired mode. I also played Apex Legends, Escape From Tarkov, and GTAV and noticed no problems with latency, drops, or issues. As for Bluetooth. I didn’t play any games. But noticed no lag while typing. I got 113 WPM on a typing test. To switch back to LIGHTSPEED it takes about a second. To switch back to Bluetooth, it took 2 - 3 seconds. So, it is fast. I was pleasantly surprised. It was the same when going from the off position to the on position. Last, I was able to use all my saved lighting profiles and normal profiles in Bluetooth mode. Up next is battery life. They report that it is up to 40 hours with lighting on max. Or 135 days if lighting is off and you game for 8 hours a day. Which breaks down to about 1,080 hours. For me personally, I used a single color (orange) at maximum brightness and purposefully did not turn the keyboard off at night or when I left my computer. Using it like I normally would with a lot of typing and some gaming it went from 100% to 70% in 7 days and it reports I still have 28 hours left. So, I would rate the battery life as excellent. As for lighting. It is fantastic. It gets nice and bright. It is also accurate and shows orange and purple well. Logitech G Hub never froze or crashed on me. However, it is not user friendly at all and trying to figure out how to do something simple is tedious and often cannot be done. Which makes your ability to be creative with the lighting limited to just changing static colors and having simple profiles. At this price range that can leave a slightly sour taste in the mouth. Since I haven’t tried their other keyboards, I can’t say if that is a design flaw for this keyboard since it is wireless or because they just have limited overall potential. PROS: - Looks, build quality, features, switches, lighting, scroll wheel, size/shape/weight, performance, battery life, feel. CONS: - Cannot adjust individual keys. Only the F keys. - The top buttons feel a bit mushy and not as premium as the rest of the board. - Sell your first and second child expensive. - G HUB is not user friendly and limits what you can do. But it sure looks pretty. - Cannot customize the lighting as much as some other keyboards such as Razer or Corsair. - Bluetooth switching isn’t as smooth as I would like.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing keyboard for gaming and everyday use- 25 juin 2020
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Keyboards are sort of a collector’s item for me. have a nice collection of them because I’ve been searching for the ideal mechanical keyboard for gaming as well as my everyday uses. Mechanical keyboards are widely popular with gamers worldwide, but they can also be great for regular computer tasks. So, for a number of years I have been testing out a variety of keyboards trying to find one that has a lengthy battery life, connects wirelessly to my MacBook Pro and Windows laptop, is compact in size, provides a remarkable clicky sound and feel from the keys, and, of course, built-in RGB backlight. The most recent keyboard I’ve tried out is the G915 TKL from Logitech. It’s a tenkeyless Wireless RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard that features LIGHTSPEED wireless technology. The Logitech G915 TKL Wireless Mechanical Keyboard is designed to enhance the gameplay experience for gamers. It features low-profile mechanical switches (half the height of standard mechanical switches) and is made with aircraft-grade aluminum for durability. Users have the choice of three different switches — Clicky for tactile feedback, Linear for smooth keystrokes, and Tactile for a discernible bump. On a single charge, the G915 TKL can have up to 40 hours of use time and it provides low battery warnings at 15% via the keyboard LED indicator and a pop-up notification from the G Hub software. The keyboard has dedicated media controls for easy access to play, pause, advance, rewind or mute your media. There is a G915 keyboard that includes the number pad, but part of the reason this keyboard was developed was to provide more room for mouse movement while gaming. The keyboard is designed to work with a wide array of computers included both Window and Mac operating systems. This is one of the reasons I continually seek out new keyboards. I want to have one that can work seamlessly with my Windows laptop (used exclusively for gaming) and my MacBook Pro (used for both gaming and productivity). I don’t like having to bounce back and forth between two keyboards when I switch between systems. The G915 TKL provides me the option to switch back and forth between systems easily with either the Bluetooth connection or the LIGHTSPEED Wireless USB receiver. SOFTWARE Logitech provides a software package called “G Hub” for users to customize their keyboard experience. This is pretty typical for gaming keyboards and even though I use my for ‘everyday’ use and not just gaming, I had some fun customizing different profiles and changing the function keys around. I do want to point out that in order to use the functionality of G Hub you must remain connected to it. That means, you have to be connected using the LIGHTSPEED wireless feature either through the USB receiver or by direct wired connection through the provided Micro USB cable. I found it interesting that Logitech does not have the G915 TKL or its predecessor listed as support keyboards in the list for G Hub. Once I figured out that Bluetooth mode was incompatible, I didn’t have any issues with using G Hub. Therefore, I assume that Logitech just hasn’t updated their compatibility list in a while. One of the main features I really appreciate with the G Hub software is the dashboard. With the dashboard, you can view all the details of your connected devices and make quick updates to firmware with just a few clicks. The main settings you can control within G Hub (at least for the G915 TKL) include: LIGHTSYNC: The ability to customize lighting effects and control how they are displayed on your computer. ASSIGNMENTS: This was probably the feature I had the most fun with. Within Assignments, you can map the F keys to control different system commands, create macros, assign actions (if available), place commands on a specific key, and even drag/drop system controls onto the keyboard. GAME MODE: The third main feature within G Hub for the G915 TKL was customizing Game Mode. This feature really just allows you to ignore keys for gaming that normally ‘get in the way.’ FORM Because I like to keep my desk set-up clean and free of clutter, I LOVE the low-profile nature of the keyboard. It sits approximately one inch tall and doesn’t have a large case surrounding the main keyboard. I really love this design choice. The media keys are a nice touch, but since you can customize your F keys in the G Hub software, they could essentially be eliminated. There is a scroll wheel included for the volume control and a place on the underside of the keyboard to store the USB receiver when it’s not in use. I also really like the choice to use aluminum for the case because it makes the keyboard lightweight while still being very robust and well-weighted. There are small feet that angle the keyboard approximately 4º, which is great for typing and gaming. As far as the switches go, my personal preference is usually geared towards Blue switches or switch types that are similar. The mechanical switches that are included in the G915 TKL are Logitech’s advanced mechanical switches designed specifically for gaming. They are called “GL” and they come in a few varieties. Since I typically prefer the Blue switch variety, GL Clicky is the version I chose for this keyboard. It has a gentle tactile feedback when you press down on it and the best ‘clicky’ sound as you type. The keyboard does not come with a key puller and from what I’ve read, isn’t really designed for easy key replacement. One article I found stated that the legs beneath the keys are easy to snap off and it may be unlikely to find replacement keys if they get broken. For that reason, I did not include a photo beneath the key caps as I didn’t want to chance ruining the keyboard for future use. The lighting effects are stunning on this keyboard. It shows off vibrant colors and the brightness can’t be beat. I love that you have the option to customize these effects (even on a Mac) to your specific preference. One of the reasons that I love being able to customize the lighting effects is because the RGB settings can greatly effect the battery life of the keyboard. That said, I typically keep my keyboard at 100% brightness (what can I say? I like colored lights) and I’ve still been very happy with my battery life. ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT One of the features of this keyboard that really surprised me was the fact that it charges with Micro USB and not USB-C. Since most modern devices are moving toward USB-C as the ‘standard’ for charging and connectivity, it’s really shocking that such a state-of-the-art keyboard like the G915 TKL would take such a monumental step into the past for it’s main method of external charging and connection. Now, if you look at other Logitech gaming peripherals it’s clear that they haven’t embraced it as a charging standard yet, but I am still going to wonder why because other Logitech products have embraced USB-C. Another feature that would really make Mac users happy is if this were a ‘true’ Apple keyboard. Even though the keyboard works with macOS computers, it doesn’t have Mac keys included. While this is a very minor criticism, I feel like it’s something that would really make this keyboard spectacular for all users. JUST PLAYING AROUND When it comes to gaming, this keyboard is the best option around for one big reason — timing. Thanks to the ultra slim profile of the keyboard, a gamer’s travel distance is much shorter than traditional mechanical keyboard. It’s also great to have lag-free wireless connectivity thanks to the LIGHTSPEED wireless technology. With that wireless boost, users can actually move a decent distance away from the computer and still have a lag-free experience. Another factor that makes this keyboard ideal for gamers is the absence of the num pad and G Programmable buttons. The full size G915 measures in at 475mm wide and the TKL version is only 368mm wide. That big of a difference does make it easier for gamers to coordinate between the keyboard and mouse in an action scenario. EVERYDAY FUNCTIONALITY In addition to gaming, the G915 TKL is also an amazing daily-driver. It’s comfortable to type on and because of its compact size it is perfect in an active workspace. I know that throughout the day I will sometimes spread out paperwork and other items across my desk. With that in mind, it’s wonderful to be able to have a smaller footprint on my desk so that I can still work actively and not have to rearrange my desk in order to do it. As far as typing speed goes, I was able to average around 60WPM on the G915 TKL. This is slightly slower than I normally type at, which is an average of 65WPM. I think this has more to do with getting used to the keyboard. The keys are comfortable to type even after long periods of time and long-form documents. PRICE There is no doubt that this a premium mechanical keyboard and you will pay a premium price for it. At $230 (at the time of publishing), the G915 TKL is currently Logitech’s second highest priced keyboard - second only to its predecessor, the G915. There are certainly more expensive mechanical gaming keyboards out there, but most of them that are of the same caliber as the G915 TKL are between $150-$200. As an afterthought, I don’t think the price would bother me so much if USB-C were used over Micro USB. FINAL THOUGHTS I’ve been very happy with the G915 TKL. It’s got remarkable battery life and despite the fact that it uses Micro USB to charge, it’s a very solid keyboard for any type of use. Aside from the price, it’s probably the best wireless low-profile keyboard around and gamers should be incredibly excited about it since Logitech is answering a call that has been out there for quite some time. I can recommend this amazing keyboard to any type of user. It is worth the investment.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent Keyboard With Only Minor Flaws- 2 avril 2021
Son's Review: Pros: Excellent battery life, I only charge once every few weeks! (I use a mix of controller and keyboard/mouse so if you use the keyboard heavily it will probably not last quite as long, but very reasonable). Extremely light weight, portable, easy to click switches, amazing lighting effects. Works effortlessly with 0 drops in connection over the dongle and bluetooth. Cons: The key switches are great but the key caps are a bit wobbly, makes it feel a little cheap. One of my switches doesn't make the click sound (still works) but it's a key I rarely use so it didn't bother me much.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Exquisite Keyboard That Comes with a Price- 23 juin 2020
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Logitech G915 TKL is here and provides some of the best features a keyboard can have. This keyboard is made with high-end materials that provide the user with a sense of quality. This keyboard is made with an aluminum alloy that provides great durability and a beautiful finish. I was incredibly satisfied with the build quality of this keyboard. Prepare to pay a hefty price for this keyboard! This keyboard has many notable and useful features, but the keyboard is not worth 230 dollars. Logitech could bring the price down to a more affordable price so others can have access to this masterpiece. The G915 TKL provides the user with 40 hours of battery on a single charge. A bit more than the full G915 which will provide about 30 hours. The low-profile switches and thin keyboard provides the user with comfort and a greater typing speed. The G915 TKL has 3 GL switch versions. This one is the GL Clicky Switch and wow does it click! If you are a lover of the traditional “clicking” sound, this keyboard is for you. There is also a dedicated slot on the back of the keyboard for the USB receiver, an excellent design choice. The keyboard has both wired and wireless connections. The wireless connection is done with either Bluetooth or the provided USB receiver. The keyboard is still using micro USB and there are newer keyboards that have already moved on to USB-C. Why is Logitech still using micro? Many devices, from phones, tablets, and even laptops have already moved on to USB-C. USB-C is the future, Logitech should adapt and move on as well. The keys are customizable and programable by using the Logitech G Hub Software that is available on both Mac OS and Windows devices. But this software is a horror show. For a company with really great products, the software is a joke. The software is not user friendly and one can have a hard time getting around. There are many bugs with the software and clearly, there is not a lot of time spent improving it. Overall, this keyboard is truly beautiful and nice to the touch. The price is a bit appalling but the features and build quality make up for it. If you have the money, buy it! You will not regret it. Pair the keyboard with the Logitech G903 Gaming Mouse(https://www.logitechg.com/en-us/products/gaming-mice/g903-hero-wireless-gaming-mouse.910-005670.html) for the ultimate experience! I will leave Logitech with a couple of suggestions: -Switch to USB-C -Make the keyboard more affordable -Improve the Logitech G Hub Software, seriously, the software needs urgent attention.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
