Went into this with a bit of trepidation because of the low-profile switches. However, actually found it quite nice to type on. Also purchased a Drop CTRL at the same time with Halo Trues, and while the feel is obviously totally different, I somewhat prefer the feel of the Logitech key profile and shorter travel. To be fair, my last mechanical keyboard was a stash of IBM Model M's that I got rid of almost a decade ago, and most of what I've typed on since has been low-profile so I am more used to that now. Since the key-spacing is still standard, the G915 shouldn't require a ton of adjustment for people used to full size keyboards.
That said, this keyboard has some flaws, with the first one being the most significant to me - the secondary legends are not lit. All the special character keys (like & and *) are simply printed on the keys and do not light. Since the printing is not high contrast to begin with, this makes them exceptionally difficult to see in the dark. I have no problem touch typing with the alpha keys, but will glance for the less frequently used special characters, and the lack of lighting is really annoying. It's also a little confusing for keys where the secondary character is used more commonly than the primary (ex: double quotes, question mark, etc...).
For reference, the lighter of the photos was taken with typical indoor lighting and while you can see the legends they don't exactly stand out. Under dim lighting, much less with the lights out, they're effectively invisible. This is an especially glaring flaw given plenty of other keyboard manufacturers have figured out a simple solution to this - simply print the secondary legend alongside the primary instead of below it, and let them both light up.
Second, this is 2020. Why in the world did Logitech choose to go with micro-USB instead of USB-C? Most other new model high end keyboards now have started adopting USB-C. This was a common complaint on the original G915 as well (along with the lack of lit secondary legends), and it's clear Logitech hasn't learned anything from all of the prior feedback.
Third, while the battery life from the lithium battery is great, if I'm spending $220 on a keyboard, I don't want to replace it in a few years if the battery starts losing its capacity. How many of you have had cell phones or laptops that just don't hold a charge as long as they used to? If you usually use this in wired mode that may be unlikely (since you're not constantly discharging the battery fully), but it would be better if the battery was replaceable.
And, while I might be in the minority for saying so, I'd almost rather it use rechargeable NiMH AA's (just throw a couple of Eneloops in it) than a non-replaceable lithium battery.
Finally, I really wish Logitech had went with higher end keycaps. On a $220 keyboard it isn't outrageous to hope for PBT double-shot keycaps. While ABS keycaps aren't uncommon, at this price point a lot of wired keyboards are now including PBT double-shot keycaps, which feel more solid, won't show oil shine, and won't have legends wearing out. This and the lack of shine-through secondary legends would be less of an issue if you could replace the keycaps, but it's virtually impossible to find third party keycaps in this profile (looks similar to Kailh Choc switches but I don't have a Kailh Choc board to try swapping with). To be fair there's not a large number of mechanical wireless keyboards to begin with, and most of those are also still using ABS keycaps, so you may be stuck with this regardless (when the Keychron K8 eventually comes out, its keycaps will be ABS but are at least OEM profile and can be swapped out).
Originally there were issues with the software, but Logitech fixed those with a software update made available on release day. The new software does recognize the keyboard correctly and let you customize the lighting. You can also adjust things like how long a period of inactivity before the lighting turns off. Note that you also need the software to set a default lighting mode (for example, the board defaults to all keys lit the same color and gently rotates between colors - I prefer the color wave, but the board won't remember that without the software, and after inactivity defaults back to the original setting).
As for the pluses... As I noted above, it's quite comfortable (for me at least) to type on. I've apparently come to prefer the light actuation force and short key travel. The Lightspeed wireless is responsive, simply works (just plug in the dongle - no issues with pairing), and doesn't interfere with my Bluetooth headset, which is a big plus. If you can get past the unlit secondary legends, the primary legends are attractive and have a very pleasant glow.
Build quality is good and the aluminum top panel is attractive and has a decent heft to it. The bottom is plastic but seems solid and the keyboard doesn't feel like it has any worrisome flex to it. The plastic tip-out feet do feel a bit cheap, though they still hold the keyboard without shaking. At this price point wired keyboards are a lot more robust (the Drop CTRL I also purchased has an aluminum upper and lower, and the feet are also solid aluminum), but that's not really an apples-to-apples comparison.
If you're looking at both the clicky and tactile versions of this keyboard, both felt good to me to type on. However, the tactile response on the clicky is sharper and more noticeable. With these low profile switches the tactile version has relatively little feedback when compared to full size tactile switches. I can't compare it to the linear version, but If you're coming from a keyboard with a significant tactile response, the tactile version of this keyboard is definitely going to be more subtle in comparison.
The clicky version technically clicks both on the downstroke and on the upstroke. This isn't that noticeable and isn't at all off-putting. The key does actuate before the click, but it is close enough that it is imperceptible and is unlikely to affect normal typing (to confirm it I had to push the key down as slowly as I possibly could). The sound is definitely a "click", or "tick", not a "clack". Subjectively the Kailh click bar based switches are reported to be a bit higher pitched but crisper than ones based on a click jacket design (like Cherry MX Blues). The last clicky keyboard I owned was an IBM Model M, which isn't really a fair comparison, and this definitely doesn't scratch that itch for me. However, as noted above, I found the click gave a slightly better tactile response than the non-clicky tactile version. Alas, while the keyboard is not that loud, it was still a deal breaker for my wife.
Unfortunately, the negatives really leave me on the fence with this keyboard. The Drop CTRL I am also considering is better built, has better keycaps, swappable switches, USB-C, and open source firmware. If I go with the G915 it will either be because I can't past having an extra wire on my desk (and right now the G915 is probably the best wireless option with backlit keys unless you want to take a chance on a Hexgears Venture) or because I find myself unable to adapt to full height keys anymore after using laptop keyboards for so long.
If I had suggestions for Logitech:
* Lit secondary legends
* PBT keycaps
* User replaceable battery
Tl;DR │ Premium price, cheap product. You could be deceived. Buy this if you are a Logitech fan. I can get the same experience, wireless or wired, in a couple of $70 keyboards. This keyboard should be $100 to $120 max (based on competition).

My background: I've used lots of mech keyboard (Roccat, Corsair, Cooler Master, Redragon, Havit, etc.), mostly clicky/tactile (from Cherry, Outemu, Kailh, TTC).
Uninitiated people praise the switches. It is not new or unique to this keyboard. For a couple of years now, I’ve been using the SAME Kailh-based low-profile “choc” switches, on $70 keyboards. But then I wanted wireless. I figured I’d pay for the promised premium product, as it could last me years. Instant regret.

Logitech is demanding a premium price on a not-so-premium build. Logitech was once a good brand, that went the way of the Apple and Razer when it comes to premium prices, but does not have the materials and parts to back it up. Essentially, your money is going to their marketing department. I do not want to pay for their marketing. I want to pay for MY keyboard.
I use my keyboards for everything. Gaming, working (lots of coding), browsing, everything. I am a power user. This keyboard does not deliver based on the price.

⁽ⁿ¹⁾ In 2020, or 2018 even, Micro-USB is cheap, stupid, and unacceptable. It tells a LOT about a company when they choose this old technology over the more modern USB-C. My main issue with Micro USB is its fragility. The port breaks more easily. When it does, your device is BRICK. I've broken a lot of devices this way. (To avoid this problem, I’ve since used magnetic micro-USB cables like this one .)
⁽ⁿ²⁾ Like micro-USB, the use of ABS keycaps says a lot. Why use ABS keycaps on a $200-$300 keyboard? It looks cheap because IT IS CHEAP. Now, I am not asking for metal, but just a couple of extra bucks and they could get PBT. These keycaps will shine (in a bad way) over time, and your keys will fade and scratch off. They will also peel off (more on that below⁽ⁿ³⁾). I have had $35 mechanical keyboards that use double-shot PBT. Think about that.
⁽ⁿ³⁾ I understand that the LED's on almost every other mechanical switch is limited to the top portion. What baffles me is Logitech's choice to use traditional keycap design that puts the shifted (secondary) function labels at the bottom, thus ensuring it does not get illuminated fully. It would have been fine partially-lit. However, they literally used a sticker for the labels (you can feel it). Remember, this is a $200-$300 keyboard, in 2020 (not 2010).
My other problem with the keycap is that the characters are dark. You cannot see the keys when there is no light. Logitech wants you not to use backlights to save battery, but it is unusable without it. Even when lit, the brightest 100% setting is not bright enough, which makes anything less than 100% almost useless.
⁽ⁿ⁴⁾ I say this because I do use these $70 keyboards from Havit: full size and TKL . I've had half a dozen other mechanical keyboards. The most expensive ones are less than $200, which were Corsair’s and Roccat’s creme de la crop keyboards (and this was 2013 when high prices were more acceptable). I replaced them all with these cheap low-profile mech keyboards because these are subjectively better. Yes, these are wired, but the price difference between these and the G915 is a joke — considering these are better in many ways as well (like the keycaps).
Even the Keychron K1 wireless low-profile mech switches (which are the closest competitors of G915) are only $70 as well — and Keychron does not even have the luxury of mass-scale production, yet somehow managed to keep the price reasonable.
⁽ⁿ⁵⁾ Since the battery is not user-serviceable, it will die, and your keyboard is 100% wired. Why am I paying the $200 premium again? Keychron K1's are wireless, but they are also $70 (when the battery dies, it is cheaper to replace the whole keyboard).
⁽ⁿ⁶⁾ To use macros, you have to sacrifice the F keys. I use F keys. Many games use F keys. I wish they dedicated even just one button for G-Shift at least, or be able to remap the FN key. G-Shift must be assigned to the F keys as well.
⁽ⁿ⁷⁾ 5-letter words I do not want to see in a keyboard this expensive. They save on labor and parts, so why are the price this high again? (Also, just... Made in China).
⁽ⁿ⁸⁾ Could be subjective, but I'll explain. The keycaps are too flat. This makes is less ergonomic than keycaps which have slightly different angles based on their row on the keyboard. This makes it easy to accidentally press a wrong key when not looking.

VERDICT: I DO NOT recommend this product. Better alternatives out there. This is not the only low-profile mechanical keyboard out there.
★★☆☆☆ | 2 stars out of 5. It is okay, but it is way overpriced for the issues I have with it. It is not "premium" and not majority aluminum (lots of plastics).

This review is for the Logitech G915 TKL - Clicky .
- Razer BlackWidow (MX Browns)
- Razer BlackWidow (MX Blues)
- Corsair K70, K63 (Cherry MX Reds with postmodded 0.2mm dampeners)
- Fnatic miniSTREAK (Cherry MX Silent Reds, also with 0.2mm dampeners)
At first I was a bit worried about the lack of a wrist rest, but the low-profile design eliminates the need for one. I prefer this over my K63/K70 (which both have pretty stellar wrist rests, imo). I noticed an immediate reduction in mistypes using this keyboard over my K63. Beyond that, the keys are more satisfying to press. The low profile design combined with the brushed metal body makes for a more appealing aesthetic as well, imo.
Likely going to be buying another one for work.

I would not recommend to buy until Logitech can sort out their quality.

I would not recommend to buy until Logitech can sort out their quality.
The keyboard is very well built and looks very nice on the desk. I did not have any issues with the condition of the key caps (finish) or the wireless connection. I was very disappointed in the wobble of the keys when typing or gaming.
The key caps on my unit can tilt to the point you actually feel the tactile bump, but no key press is registered. Pressing the edges of the keys resulted in around a 4 in 10 chance where the key would not register my press when typing.
I am not a professional typist by any means - but I do type a fair bit. I have never had a keyboard (mechanical, dome switch etc..) where I had to press directly on the center of the key for a reliable actuation / register of the key press.
I really wanted to like the keyboard, but for the price - I just couldn't justify keeping it.
1. El material de las teclas, siendo un teclado tan caro esperaría que fueran de mayor calidad. Además, los botones de la fila de arriba (multimedia y brillo) son de goma, lo cual considero no tienen lugar en un teclado premium.
2. El brillo del RGB, si bien es adecuado y con colores excelentes, no incluye los símbolos adicionales de cada tecla. Es decir, solo se ilumina el caracter principal pero no los secundarios (ej. la tecla 1 no ilumina el símbolo !)
3. Las teclas se sienten medio flojas. No quiere decir que se vayan a caer ni mucho menos (ya le di su buena agitada para probar y todo en orden), simplemente no están tan fijas como en otros teclados que he usado.
4. El puerto de carga es micro-usb en lugar de usb c. Siendo un producto nuevo de Logitech no entiendo por qué decidieron esto, pero bueno es solo una observación.
Estos puntos hacen que el precio del producto no se sienta tan justificado, pero al ser un teclado de nicho (perfil bajo, TKL, inalámbrico con tecnlogía de bajo lag) lo sigo recomendando para aquellos que busquen algo con estas características. Espero que la versión 2.0 de este teclado arregle estos detalles para que ahora sí sea el mejor de su segmento.
Key presses are pleasant and accurate.
Battery life is outstanding with all RGB turned on with 100% brightness.
Wireless modes are flawless.
Charging the battery from 0% to 100% is around 2.5-3 hours.
Macros and other commands work spot on.
Too many options to light up your keyboard with different styles.
Logitech G Hub functions well.
Cons : The secondary functions on the keycaps do not lit up. For eg. the symbol keys under 1, 2 , 3 etc. do not light up. This could be a major concern if you are sitting in a dark or a poorly lit room. Experienced typists may not see an issue with this.
