Logitech advertises the ability to press any combination of five keys at once on the G Trench exits are located on the top, sides, and bottom of the keyboard with a groove cut out in the detachable wrist rest. Using modifier keys would allow this number to climb as high as The powered USB 2. Despite using the same The G-series Key Profiler software included with the keyboard allows for some interesting and complex macros to be created. Historically, commercial developer support for the GamePanel display has been spotty at best.

Quick Macros can also be created in-game by way of the MR Macro Record key, which will record everything except time delays and mouse events, then bind the macro to a G-key for immediate use. Audio playback through the Windows default device is also handled well, complete with independent mute and volume controls. Speaking of updates, a new software patch was just released during the course of this review that provides official support for Window Vista SideShow, so be sure to check out the Windows SideShow gallery for all the free gadgets there are to download.

The Logitech G19 is powered by the same GamePanel software as the G15 keyboard, Z speakers and Dell M laptop, thus making it backwards-compatible with virtually every applet created for those devices.

Of course, the main draw to the G19 is its iconic LCD display. All you really need to know is that when certain groups of keys are pressed, the matrix circuitry of older keyboards would generate a phantom keystroke also known as ghosting.

Macros can be just as complex with lengthy commands and variable time delays, the GamePanel software works and includes an SDK to be used with XCode, and the media applets integrate perfectly with iTunes and Quicktime.

A simple keystroke, complex macro, duplicate M-key, Lua script, application shortcut or text block with return character support can all be assigned to the individual G-Keys. One criticism of the keyboard in other professional reviews and felt the need to address is the lack of analog headset pass-through jacks found on a handful of gaming keyboards from Razer, SteelSeries, and Saitek.

Powerful macro scripting, customizable key backlighting, and the best external LCD platform on the market make for a great keyboard. Some game developers Valve Software have yet to make any GamePanel-enabled titles whatsoever. The only noticeable layout change has been to the Escape key, now positioned flush with the left edge of the main keygroup and not offset as is typical with other Logitech keyboards.

With the Logitech G19, macros are entirely dependent logitechh the drivers to run; the onboard memory is memory is used for synchronizing profiles to computers that already have the software installed. Using the pre-installed codec pack CCCPMoview Viewer it seems to be able to handle practically any video so long as the extension is.

You’re awesome for doing it! All of the applets are bright and colorful, serving up bite-sized chunks of information that are best suited for an external display. Out of the box, Logitech ships with nine color LCD applets: The media keys have been moved from the center of the keyboard to the right corner in order to accommodate the taller LCD profile, thereby eliminating a large portion of the unused space found in the G Newer keyyboard somewhat addressed this lpgitech by blocking phantom keystrokes, but were still limited to pressing only keys at once instead of the maximum six allowed by USB.

Sharing is Caring Help spread the word. On the underside of the keyboard is a series of trenches for cable routing that can help manage cable clutter from mice, gamepads and headphones.

The only two major drawbacks that the keyboard suffers from are its bulky AC adapter and high suggested retail price in a time of economic downturn. Each profile is tied to a specific application or game and is automatically loaded whenever that application is in the foreground. Not only does the adapter take up the outlets directly underneath its bulk, but on some power strips it also can also block the above ground socket as well!


Though, these predefined functions could to be too simplistic and you may end up creating your own macros anyway. On one hand, some games such as Prey and Enemy Territory: The macros seem to have no arbitrary limits set, allowing for incredibly complex macros or long strings of text to be created.

Indeed, a toggle switch is certainly more elegant than the alternative of prying those blasted keys from the keyboard. That being said, a few of the apps could still use a little f19 work from the developers. Creating macros is a breeze with the Macro Manager. So why is this handy?

Not all differences are bad, as the Media Display applet for Mac has the new ability to display iTunes album artwork. Above the G-keys is a row of three M-keys that are used to specify which color and set of macros is in use for the current profile, making for b19 total of 36 keys per profile. Historically, commercial developer support for the GamePanel display has been spotty at best.

This is useful for heavy macro users who need to be reminded which set of macros is currently available for execution, e. Using modifier keys would allow this number to climb as high as
