Logitech G15 2007 Gaming Keyboard

The computer keyboard is the first and longest standing peripheral hardware device to exist in our industry. Very few changes have altered the way casual users interact with their personal computer. But this is the new age of gaming-grade hardware, and basic equipment is not on the parts list. Logitech introduces the G15 2007 Programmable LCD Gaming Keyboard 920-000379, and Benchmark Reviews tests it with a few of the more popular video games.

Not many peripheral products can qualify as true gaming keyboards; especially since the majority of these products just simply add bold colors or large keys. Logitech takes the process more seriously, and the new and improved G15 (Revision 2 aka 2007) Programmable LCD Gaming Keyboard offers hardcore gamers something to take them to the next level.

Good intel and the proper gear are the keys to victory, even in gaming. The Logitech G15 keyboard keeps you informed and outfitted to win.

With the Logitech-exclusive GamePanelTM LCD, you can easily find out what server your friends are using to play Battlefield 2142TM, or receive notification when your World of Warcraft battleground becomes available. You can even identify who's speaking in VentriloTM. Create useful macros on the fly and play them back with a single press of a G-key. Illuminated characters allow you to play late into the night.

About the Company: Logitech

Logitech is a world leader in personal peripherals, driving innovation in PC navigation, Internet communications, digital music, home-entertainment control, gaming and wireless devices. The company's products combine essential core technologies, continuing innovation, award-winning industrial design and excellent price performance.logitech_logo_200px.jpg

Logitech's origins lie in the OEM sector, which remains an important part of its business, and represented 11.6 percent of the company's total sales in Fiscal 2006. To meet the demands of its OEM customer base, which includes most of the world's largest PC manufacturers, Logitech offers high-volume manufacturing with focused quality control, worldwide distribution and logistics, and the ability to leverage its infrastructure under changing demand conditions.

Logitech continues to broaden its product offering and its presence in the retail sector. This is fueled by a trend among consumers to enhance their basic PC systems with more fully featured personal peripherals that add functionality and cordless freedom to their desktops. They are also purchasing supplementary devices designed for new applications and specific purposes such as gaming, multimedia, or audio and visual communication over the Internet. Further, Logitech's retail business includes personal peripherals for platforms beyond the PC, such as gaming consoles, portable music players, mobile phones and home-entertainment systems.

Today, Logitech's retail business accounts for 88.4 percent of its revenue. To provide the market with a broadening array of best-of-category products, Logitech's business model calls for supplementing its internal engineering and manufacturing strength with additional products and technologies through a combination of strategic acquisitions and industry partnerships.
