The Logitech G110 gaming keyboard is a mid-level entry keyboard to Logitech’s gaming keyboards. It’s less than half the price of Logitech’s G19 keyboard, but you still get some of the cool features. The build quality of this keyboard is definitely on par with a bunch of higher end keyboards. I have been using mine for a little less than a month now and I can say that it’s the best keyboard I’ve ever owned.
When you first open up the box, you will find an installation CD, quick-start guide, 1-year limited hardware warranty, and of course the keyboard itself. Setting up this keyboard literally took me about 3 minutes and the directions were very self explanatory. One of the best features on this keyboard is the custom-color backlighting. Using the software provided with the keyboard, you can adjust the color of the keys to your preference, which makes typing and gaming in the dark a lot easier. There are twelve programmable G-keys and three macros per key which enable you to have 36 different functions in a game. This makes playing certain games much more fun without having to go into the menu and select the item.
I’m sure most gamers have been playing a game before and accidentally hit the windows key just as they were about to make kill. This keyboard actually has a game/desktop mode button that basically allows you to disable the windows key during game play. This feature is great and is also available on Logitech’s higher end G19 gaming keyboard. In the upper right hand corner of the keyboard there are some media keys that give you access to volume and media playback. On the front of the keyboard there is a USB 2.0 port that allows you to connect various peripherals. Using this USB port I have noticed to much handier than actually using one on a desktop. There is also a removable palm rest that comes with the keyboard, but it can easily be detached if needed. I actually think it’s comfortable to have on the keyboard.
This keyboard makes playing games much more fun, especially in the dark. The keys are very quiet and smooth to type on and they are fairly low profile so you may find yourself typing faster with this keyboard. I have yet to max out the customizable macro keys and don’t think I ever will. If you are looking for a gaming keyboard in an affordable package, this keyboard does the job great. I have yet to have any problems with it and for the price there really isn’t another keyboard on the market that can compete with this one.
