- It's sleek and compact which I enjoy (I'm not a fan of the big, bulky keyboards).
- The lighting is great (steady, true to color)
- The keys are easy to pop off, clean, and place back on.
- I haven't really had any ghosting (I can recall like twice a key ghosted which is way better than the Corsair K70 Lux I had).
- The Logitech switches are super quiet compared to Cherry Browns (yes, more quiet than Cherry Browns).
- Actuation pressure is good, typing is easy and smooth.
- I haven't noticed a difference in any input delay between this and my Corsair.
- Pretty rugged (I may have dropped the keyboard from standing height onto a hard wood floor by accident and it endured just fine)
- No onboard memory
- Keys get dirty pretty quick
- The Logitech software sets the keyboard to breathe when you exit it, so you have to force quit it through Task Manager if you want to keep the static color, but don't want to have to be running the Logitech software all the time.
The biggest complaint I had with it was with the Logitech Gaming Software , not the keyboard. It defaulted to the "breathe" setting on the keyboard, which I didn't want. I wanted to be able to see the key backlighting at all times. I would turn off the "breathe" effect in the software, and then find the keyboard set back to "breathe" after rebooting.
Now here's the bad thing. I decided to uninstall the Logitech Gaming Software and reinstall, hoping to solve this minor annoyance. I ended up with a blue screen error that would pop up about 30 seconds consistently after every single reboot. Couldn't figure out how to fix it and ended up having to reinstall Windows. Needless to say, I'm not installing the Logitech Gaming Software again. Without the software installed the backlighting is constant.
Now I've had the keyboard for about a month and the e button is registering twice when pushed once. So wheen I typee it teends to comee out likee this. Needless to say, I'm getting rid of it. Every cheapo membrane keyboard I've had in the last 20 years has lasted longer.
One final minor complaint: there is no wrist rest and the keyboard has a slightly sharp lower edge.
Edit 2/13/19: Now the WW key is failing. The Romer switches seem to be a probleem.
Not wanting to pay to use superior cherry switches, logitech developed romer switches which replace the stiff central stem from cherry with 4 thin, flimsy 'fins' which after a while begin to snap off leaving the broken fin in the receiver.
The result is keys become unstable as they're only supported in 3,2 or 1 fin - finally all 4 break and the keyboard is now ruined. The key cap has no stem, and the receiver has 4 plastic fins jammed into it which are impossible to remove.
In short, romer switches are designed to fail after a year or two - a good mechanical keyboard should last decades.
This is the most tastefully designed gaming keyboard I've ever seen. It's beautiful in it's simplicity. I really like the clean layout. I even like that the keys float above the board instead of being recessed into it since that'll keep it from retaining a lot of dust. Even the slight LED backlight bleeding under the keys adds to the aesthetic, adding a subtle glow underneath the keys.
I love the switches on this thing. They actuate very cleanly, and are quieter than other mechanicals I've tried. They can also be used more quietly if you're gentle since they actuate so early. Typing and gaming don't require much force on this board, and I really like that. It's still louder than a membrane keyboard, but not significantly. I feel more like I'm lightly touching the keys than pressing them. That's a significant improvement over my old membrane keyboard.
All in all, I'd say this keyboard is a steal at the $65 I picked it up at, and I'd recommend it to anyone that types a lot. If you're just casually gaming, I would save the money.

After a heavy research and negative review (those who already bought) i bought this because of Brand name and the floating type mechanical key style.
I use this keyboard for Dota, PUBG and all the recent AAA title games.
This Keyboard is not strictly for DOTA, even though i enabled Function + f8 for Gaming mode (Not sure about the marketing name) (Anti-Ghosting) and my game will get minimize when you are in intense game in DOTA since DOTA involves in multi key press at a time and this will irritate you if you are a heavy DOTA player and i never faced this issue in Logitech K120 keyboard. Also the keys are so sensitive and if you just place the finger the key will register (lost some PUBG tournament by falling while riding in vehicle :-P)
Frequently using keycaps will broke within one month of purchase though i replaced with the spare key provided in the box but you cannot replace other key caps or get spare online anywhere else. I checked with Ensure Support Service (Logitech Authorized service center Chennai) and he said if a keycap is broken you need to submit the full keyboard to get the complete replacement... WTH ??? more i will explain later
If you are buying cherry MX switches you can get the complete set of key caps and can use the caps from various brand to any board and it will work but not the same for Roamer G.
Now the next thing is after i replaced the key caps i used for nearly 7 months and now i am facing double key issue when i click single key single time. After i saw some youtube videos to resolve this i tried removing all the caps and cleared the dust and re-plugged it and some are resolved and some or not.
So finally i am done with this and went to service center in Alwarpet Chennai on 4th Jan 2019 for warranty and they said Logitech is recalling this model keyboard and providing full refund with the GST bill amount you bought, just yesterday i provided all the document and collected my keyboard with my ID proof.
So i am not blaming Logitech or Amazon here but just telling my experience that not to buy this model since the service person itself saying they are getting issues a lot on this model mainly for double key and cap broken issue hence Logitech itself recalling this.
Hats of to Logitech for refunding full bill amount and the brand value speaks. And thanks appario re seller for providing a GST bill during the purchase.
make sure all have GST bill to get this refund. I am waiting for the refund amount to buy hyper X cherry MX
From the time it went to the service centre and got the replacement. Now again it's showing the sign of how badly it was built.
First time few of its LEDs stopped working and now I'm having issues of double letter typing on a single press, some keys are missing the letters. Delete key's underhook got broken without any forcefull intervention.
The KB is so expensive but the quality is utter worst. Now I'm using my TVS mechanical KB I bought 5 years back. Now you can see how TVS was built and how this was built.
TVS is no beautiful to look at but it has solid bulit quality. This one has the beauty but with cheap chinese built.
I'll buy the TVS again as my another new KB.
Give like if this helpful to you. I recommend do not buy this KB.
- It's *heavy* and in conjunction with the rubber pads on the bottom, it doesn't move AT ALL on a glass desk. Satisfyingly solid.
- It's got a very compact footprint and takes up far less desk space than other keyboards.
- The keys are quieter than Cherry Browns and compared to a Strafe RGB the romer g's feels pretty good and keystrokes are more thud than clack. You're not going to bug your coworkers too much.
- There are no wells around the keys, so it looks like it'a going to be nice and easy to shake cruft out of compared to a lot of other keyboards.
- USB passthrough is in the right spot (pointing *up* towards screens, top right corner) and has a channel underneath for a usb cable
- Price is reasonably in-line with what you get.
- Moments after I opened the package I found the left shift key wasn't seated properly and squished like a dead rat. Pulling it and re-seating it solved the problem. (The package contains a key puller, but any generic key puller works fine.)
- The key sizes in comparison to a Strafe RGB are pretty much the exact same. This is a disappointment because they're both unusually small compared to a regular standard keyboard. Holding a replacement key up next to a generic keyboard reveals that they're about 1/8" smaller in width/height. If you have big fingers this sucks, although not a big enough deal to return the keyboard for me.
- The switching action feedback might even be a little too weak since I'm finding I'm typing rather hard and my fingers might end up getting sore after a while, I suspect. (Only had this keyboard for a day now, so I haven't gotten entirely used to it yet, I may become less hammery eventually.)
- The software is lame and mildly confusing, but at least less garbagey than Corsair's or other manufacturer's utilities.
- The Game mode/Caps Lock LED indicators on the top-right are disturbingly bright and not affected by dimming the backlights or anything. WTF. Will need to cover with something, in low light conditions it's burning my retinas.
## Other notes
- The touted quick actuation point is marketing gibberish. It doesn't make any difference.
- The lights are okay and their much-ballyhooed position in the center of the switches isn't anything aside from more marketing material. In fact, keys with more than a letter have dim text away from the center. If you care all that much that this bothers you though, you've got problems.
- Very generic looking and not flashy, which is good or bad, you decide.
- USB 2 instead of 3 passthrough. This is a new model keyboard and using USB2 is a dumb choice, but nothing worth docking any points for since they're clear about it.
After two years of solid use, the left control key has broken off - the plastic that anchors the key cap to the stem is broken off in the step and it's not able to be fixed. Also a few keys are starting to repeat themselves which isn't good, so I've just bought another keyboard. It turned out to be an alright little keyboard but not able to handle my beefy mitts hammering on it for 14 hours a day, and definitely a bit cramped so I'm not buying it again.
Also, many times the key presses don't register 'instantly'. It feels like typing through a keyboard with bad wireless keyboard.
I'd purchased another Logitech mechanical keyboard [ https://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B073SYPN5W/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ] with similar mechanism. It also started giving same problem after a few weeks, but the problem is less severe.
