Logitech's input devices have made them one of the more recognizable names in computer peripherals. While they have branched out to offer items like speakers, webcams, and remote controls, their line up of keyboards and mice has also grown to meet the needs of just about any type of computer installation.
With input devices custom tailored for home theaters, online communications, 3D gaming, and of course basic desktop duty, Logitech has something to appeal to just about everyone. This review is going to focus on a keyboard loaded with features specifically designed for 3D gamers; the G15 Revision 2.
An overview of the Logitech G15 Revision 2 gaming keyboard is shown in the promotional image above, and some of the items that make it unique can already be seen. The overall style is sporty, a "GamePanel" LCD provides convenient access to system information, a handful of G-keys allow you to program your own macros, and backlit keys let you take command with any lighting condition.
Before taking a closer look at the keyboard and all it has to offer, let's take a look at some published data regarding it taken from the Logitech website.
