The first thing you notice about this keyboard is that it is big. Really big. It measures 21.5" from side to side. I was so concerned about this keyboard taking over my limited desk space that I almost put it back in the shipping carton unopened. That would have been a mistake -- this is a fabulous keyboard, especially for those of us who grew up on the original IBM PC/XT, and AT keyboards.
No, it doesn't have the clicky sound of the original IBM boards, but the layout is nearly perfect and the feel is excellent.
I had been using a Logitech MX3000 keyboard, which met an untimely death by coffee. I was happy enough with the MX3000, and I almost bought a 3200 to replace it. But I didn't really need a cordless keyboard, and I never really cared for the mouse that comes with the Logitech 3xxx cordless desktop sets. Now that I have them side-by-side, there is no comparison. The G11 feels solid without being stiff; the MX3000 feels mushy and imprecise. The F-keys on the G11 are full-sized and are located where my fingers think they ought to be!
The provided keyboard profiler software is unobtrusive and easy to install. I have found the "G" keys handy for storing passwords, my e-mail signature, and other short snippets of text. The backlighting feature is more useful than I imagined. I don't miss the extra buttons on my MX3000; the G11's volume control and media buttons cover about 99% of my needs. I would have liked a standby button, but I can understand why you wouldn't want one on a gaming keyboard.
$69 is a lot of $$$ for a keyboard. But if you spend most of your days typing, it is money well spent!
Hope this helps.
The only short coming, at least for me, is that the underneath adjuster legs that allow its far size to raise up are WAY too small. Raises it only a tiny amount. Almost useless and a suprising thing for them to gloss over. I need a keyboard to be angled more downward toward me and these lifter legs are only about 1/2" - if that.
Also, this is not a shortcoming, just an FYI. It took my brain a while to adjust to the extra 4 inches of keys on the far left side of the keyboard. Over years, your brain gets used to where keys are relative to the end of the keyboard and my fingers keep gravitating toward the far end of the keyboard and mistyping. Its kinda hard to describe, you will see ;^)
But overall, this is slick, sleek and well made!
1. As many reviewers have said already, this keyboard is fairly large. However, I have plenty of desk space, so that's not an issue to me.
2. The backlit keys are very nice for those who sometimes type in the dark. Not necessary if you're just touch-typing a letter, but quite useful if you're playing games and need to hit a particular key quickly. The lighting seems fairly even across the board with only a few minor areas that seem a bit darker. There are two levels of light (as well as "off") and I wish that the second level were brighter. The difference between "low" and "high" is not much at all.
3. I have not yet used the media keys, so can't comment there.
4. Tactile feedback is pretty good. Now that I'm used to the key placement (it's shifted over a tad from my old keyboard), I find it pleasant to type on. Only issue here is I don't like the placement of the Esc key - It's shifted over about 1 cm from my old keyboard I have yet to adjust...but that's just me.
5. Two USB ports on the board are a nice touch, especially if your computer isn't within easy reach.
Overall, as a general keyboard, I'm very happy with the G11. It feels good and looks good.
Now, about those macro keys...
The G11 has 18 macro keys and 3 Mode keys, which basically are telling you which setup your 18 keys are on. This basically gives you a total of 54 (3x18) total macros you could set up if you wished! These 54 keys can also be separately programmed for any number of Profiles.Read more ›
