When it comes to PC gaming peripherals there are no shortage of options from Razer, Corsair, Logitech and more there are simply too many options. But once you start looking into the wireless gaming peripherals most of those options disappear. The G915 is a bit of a black sheep in the gaming keyboard scene as most “hardcore” gamers shun the idea of a wireless keyboard and embrace their wires. That being said, I am going to say this is my favorite gaming keyboard to date, it checks all the right boxes so let’s get into them.
Normally keyboards are built and covered with cheap plastic much like the G910 Orion Spark (it’s younger and former flagship keyboard from Logitech). This keyboard has no bend and has a brushed metal finish. This keyboard just feels and looks premium but let’s address those switches there are no cherry switches on this keyboard. Logitech simply doesn’t use cherry switches but they instead offer three options clicky (what I am using), tactile (this is like Cherry MX Brown), and linear. Clicky is noticeably clicky to the point it could be distracting if you’re a streamer but the click is very satisfying. Tactile is just more well rounded and less annoying to your potential audiences but the click was too satisfying for me to pass up!
As all gaming keyboards have this has all the RGB features you would expect with a bunch of options to change the colors on click, a wave effect or a nice solid color (this is what I personally have it set to). Outside of that there are 5 G Keys which can be set to perform macros or activate hot keys if you wish to assign them in a game. The keyboard is wireless and its bluetooth compatability works on Windows, Mac, Android and IOS. But this is simply not a keyboard I would say you should bring anywhere, it’s not small enough to fit comfortably in a backpack and most of the keys don’t work on mobile.
Design & Daily Usage
The low profile design makes this keyboard easy to clean and easy to use. There isn’t much travel distance between keys, and it’s a great keyboard to sit back and type an article like I am doing for this piece. There is one thing i will note though, this keyboard the keys can pop off if you’re not careful. Effectively the keys get placed in with two plastic brackets and if you’re not careful and pull up the key can come with you. I have yet to have them be damaged in any way and they only pop off if my finger or cable gets stuck under the key (because I wasn’t paying attention) and I yanked up. In normal usage such as gaming and typing I have never pulled the keys up.
Also cleaning this keyboard is a breeze since there isn’t a crevice for the dust to fall into you can effectively hold the keyboard upside down spray it with a can of compressed air and be done with it. I also recommend wiping off the keys every now and again with some electronics wipes.
The G Hub Software works for me some users report it spiking in memory or CPU usage though and they had to force close the application with task manager. I personally haven’t experienced this issue. I also currently run my keys in a static color but there are a ton of different effects including the one I demonstrated below dubbed “color wave”. It’s appealing but I prefer a static color which also has the side effect of conserving on battery life.
This is my favorite keyboard to date and the fact that it’s wireless is my favorite feature. Previously I was running the Logitech G910 Orion Spark this was an awesome keyboard for the time that I had it but I wasn’t a fan of its design and the wire made my desk look more cluttered than I could tolerate anymore. Overall this is my favorite gaming keyboard its clicky, its got the gaming features many of you would love and its satisfying to use. It was well worth the price that I paid for it and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!
The Logitech G915 is an awesome keyboard that provides amazing build quality, a satisfying click combined with the gaming and RGB features that this crowd would love.
