Earlier this month at CES, we unveiled a handful of new computer gaming peripherals. This week, I’ll be blogging about each of these G-series products, beginning today with the Logitech G19 keyboard for gaming.
Logitech G19 Keyboard
The first thing you’ll notice about the G19 keyboard it the built-in color LCD panel, making it the first Logitech keyboard to feature a color GamePanel LCD. The tiltable, 320-by-240-pixel display displays in-game information for more than sixty games, as well as things like VoIP communication data, a clock, your computer’s CPU load, or even pictures fed from Flickr or videos from YouTube.
Compatible with both Windows-based and Mac computers, we also included 12 fully programmable G-keys with three macros per key. A ‘Game Mode’ switch can disable the Windows key when playing (so you don’t accidentally hit it and bounce yourself out of a game), and two high-speed USB 2.0 ports so you can connect and power devices directly from the keyboard.
