Logitech Launches G15 Keyboard With Adjustable-Tilt LCD Display and Extra Programmable Keys

Logitech has announced the Logitech G15 keyboard, which the company says is the ultimate keyboard for serious PC gamers.

The Logitech G15 keyboard features a built-in auxiliary LCD display, 18 programmable keys, and advanced software to set up custom commands for every game. The adjustable-tilt, backlit LCD can be programmed to display in-game information, or data from other applications, without interrupting game play.

The LCD display will be supported by several new games later this year, providing game information such as score, times, health status, and ammunition levels. Out of the box, the LCD panel can be programmed to show information from other applications, such as incoming e-mail alerts or CPU speed without interfering with the game on screen.

By installing Logitech's software drivers, the LCD will also display media information such as track names and times while music is playing on a PC. Below the LCD, the keyboard features media controls keys.
A software development kit (SDK) will be included on the installation CD, allowing users to write their own programs for customized information to be displayed on the LCD screen. When not in use, the LCD panel folds down to protect the screen.

The LCD and Logitech's gaming keyboard software also help gamers to set up custom macro commands, which combine multiple keystrokes into one button press without leaving the game. The keyboard has 18 fully programmable keys, called the G keys, and three mode keys: M1, M2, and M3. Within each mode, each G key can be programmed to represent a different keystroke or macro, meaning a total of 54 different commands that can be customized.

The Logitech G15 keyboard also features backlit keys with a light from underneath the key illuminating the character on top of the key. A button on the keyboard turns on the backlighting with two possible brightness levels.

The keyboard has two full-speed USB ports built in and a gaming mode switch, which, when turned on, disables the Windows key.
