Logitech G19 Programmable Gaming Keyboard with Color Display
I was using the Corsair keyboard before this, which felt very clunky. It would also repeat key presses shortly after I bought it. This keyboard is amazing and beautiful. People complain about the plastic, but honestly I think it looks great and the plastic feels very good for long gaming sessions.
My problem with the Corsair keyboard (other than it repeating key presses) was how hard it was to make a good macro. The G19 laughs at macros. Not only can you write a macro using notepad, or the macro editor, you can actually record a macro INCLUDING DELAYS. Wow. That’s cool. When I craft in FFXIV now I just do it once, put it on a loop and leave the computer while my character crafts away!
The LCD screen is stunning. I’m not sure if it’s 1080p off the top of my head, but if it isn’t I can’t tell. People complain about the clunky YouTube app. Why are you watching YouTube on a tiny LCD screen? The only time I do is when I’m in a raid or crafting and I think it’s ridiculously awesome that I can watch a YouTube video of my choosing straight on my keyboard, and the sound still comes out of my speakers at full quality. Wow.
I haven’t played a game that was compatible with the LCD screen yet, but I have nothing but high hopes for when I do.
Disclaimer: I am a bit of a Logitech fan boy. Speakers, mouse, keyboard, etc are all Logitech. I’m probably going to replace my Nostromo with the Logitech Gamepad when a game comes out that’s worth losing my life over!
