full-blown LCD monitor—is the best one they’ve made yet, even if it doesn’t quite reach its full mind-blowing potential.
Holy Crap, There’s a Monitor in My Keyboard
The 320×240 LCD display that hovers over the keyboard is really the G19’s raison d’tre. After incarnations of its G15 keyboard with a monochrome display for game stats and system info, it was really the only place left to go, and for the most part, it’s a comfy place with silk sheets and free Coke in the minibar. I mean, you can watch YouTube or movies while you frag.
If you’ve used a higher end Logitech keyboard before—especially the G11 or G15, you roughly know what you’re getting. Logitech’s keys are a perfect balance of punchy and squishy and just really feel fantastic—it’s why they haven’t messed with the formula in a long time. Overall the G19 a solid piece of hardware, though you might expect something less plastic-y and more tank-like for $US200, if only so it felt more likely to survive the onslaught of sweaty hands pummeling keys and Cool Ranch Doritos. The wrist rest is unacceptably cheap and crappy, though.
