The Logitech G19 supplies you with a secondary display screen, ostensibly to reduce the variety of times you switch out of a video game to the Windows desktop computer to examine the time, your in-box, or obtain other details. Unlike the G15’s two-tone design, the G19 gets the full-colour result as well as a larger 320×240 screen size. Logitech includes 11 various applications you can make use of on the screen of the G19, amongst them a clock, a system efficiency monitor, RSS viewers, picture and video clip players, and also an application that allows you play YouTube videos. There are no dimming controls, yet if the lighting is as well bright, just select a darker colour. There’s likewise a devoted switch to transform the backlighting off altogether, though this likewise switches off the LCD.
The G19’s top-level keys have extra directional offer than a lot of, indicating they ’til t’ a little bit in the instructions you push them. Nevertheless, they’re never loose, as well as without doubt feedback is fairly soft. Regardless of this, you’re never in doubt as to when you have actually pressed a trick, thanks to a favourable, audible click. Construct high quality of the key-board itself is outstanding, with the tiltable LCD screen affixed not to a plastic joint however a thick metal bar and also shielded from wear, tear as well as scrapes by a clear plastic shield. The only reason for concern is the detachable wrist-rest. It is hung on by fairly lightweight plastic clips, similar to ones which have damaged on previous Logitech key-boards I have actually possessed.
At the top of the keyboard, you’ll find 2 powered USB 2.0 ports. This is a significant enhancement on the G15, where the ports were USB 1.1 and also not powered. Under the keyboard are networks for transmitting cables to the front or side, providing an excellent level of versatility. Without this LCD, the G19 is a macro keyboard, filled with programmable tricks that gamers have learned to customize to their preferred video games. Each secret is backlit with any shade of your option, as well as there are three gaming accounts to choose from if you’re a hardcore macro addict.
