New: Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110

Today I am pleased to announce our newest gaming keyboard, the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G110. As the successor to the G11, it has the following features:


Customizable backlighting: We put in red and blue backlighting LEDs and give you control in the Profiler software over how they are mixed together, so your G110′s backlighting can be red, blue, or pretty much any shade of purple you can imagine.

G110 keyboard_TOP_Blue G110_TOP_RedLed_72_dpi

12 programmable G-keys and three M-keys: Give you the power to assign up to 36 single keystrokes, multi-key macros, or intricate LUA scripts. And, using the MR key, you can configure macros on the fly. The Profiler software also allows you to configure each M-key mode to have a different color backlighting, so you can know at a glance what mode you’re in.


Automatic game detection: Lets you create separate custom G-key programming profiles for every game you play.

Game mode switch: Easily disable the Windows and Context Menu keys, so that accidentally pressing them doesn’t kick you out of your game.


Integrated headset support: Works with any standard headphones or headset with 3.5mm plugs, like the Gaming Headset G330, and turns them into a high-quality USB audio device.

G110 Keyboard Connection

Hi-Speed USB 2.0 hub port: Plug your flash drive or favorite gaming mouse into this convenient low-power port.

G110 Keyboard back

One USB cable: Unlike other gaming keyboards with these features, the G110 gives you convenient audio jacks and a USB hub port without a tangled mess of cables at the back of your computer. All you need is one available USB port.

Mac and PC software included: Whether you’re a Mac or a PC, we’ve got you covered.

The Gaming Keyboard G110 will retail for $79.99.  It will be available in North America starting in late November, and in Europe in January.

    • Hi Anderson,

      The G110 features red and blue backlighting LEDs only. There are no green backlighting LEDs in the product, so it is not possible to make it green or yellow.

  • Woo! First comment!

    This keyboard looks just fantastic! I might buy it soon! I like purchasing from eBay though, so yeah. I’d have to wait for it to be there. Great work! =D


    • Hi dsbilling,

      The G110 is the successor to the G11, which also does not have a GamePanel LCD. For those people who want this feature, the G15 will continue to be available.

  • Wait… it’s the successor to the G11… and it has one less USB port, no music control and less G keys.

    You guys aren’t very good at the whole “improvement” thing, are you? Granted, perfection is when there is nothing left to remove, but I think that’s usually in reference to unwanted or unused features.

    Ever since you discontinued the original G15, I’ve been waiting for you to either start making it again, or make a keyboard that at least matches its features.

    • Hi Quxxy,

      I appreciate your comments and concerns. Ultimately it is questions like yours that help us to define and create each successive generation of products. I personally read a significant amount of feedback from many sources, and integrate that into my understanding of what customers would like to see in our products.

      While I absolutely see validity in your message, the G110 does feature quite a few improvements over the G11, including integrated USB audio (vs no audio), a Hi-Speed USB port (vs full-speed), additional backlighting options (vs blue-only), and a more compact size. And, as you correctly surmise in your (unposted) followup, there are media controls in the upper right corner of the keyboard. ;)

      We have to make tough decisions about features with every new product we release. For our previous G-Series keyboards, Hi-Speed USB, audio jacks, and customizable colors were very frequent requests. In order to add those features without exceeding the available power budget of the PC’s USB port, however, we were only able to include one USB hub port on the keyboard. Similarly, the 18 G-keys were a popular feature with many, but the fact that the keyboard didn’t fit into keyboard trays was just as big an issue for many others. In the research we’ve done and the conversations I’ve had with customers, 12 seemed to be the best compromise between functionality and product size.

      Again, thanks for the questions and comments – we’re always looking to improve on the work we’ve done in the past. Even when it’s brand new. :)

  • Awesome! looks like you guys really listened to the gamers this time around.

    I’m really a fan of the headphone audio jacks, It will most likely solve my MBP audio input problems without the need for me to go out and buy an adapter.

    And bringing back more G keys is great.

    Looking forward to it, hopefully if this is at a reasonable price ($75 or less) I will definitely be picking this up.

  • Hello, I just have a quick question. Is it mandatory to install the drivers that comes with the keyboard in order to get the headphone and usb ports to work? And thanks for answering all the questions so far, Chris. It’s really informative and also, when are you guys not going to make the software not use up so much memory and system resources? The setpoint software has some really neat features but don’t see why it destroys my computer resource wise. I’m using a laptop btw, so it could be that I just have a slow laptop.

    • Hi Jonathan,

      The audio jacks and USB port use standard drivers already present in Windows and the Mac OS. You do not need to install software for these features to function – if you plug the G110 in, they will just work. The programmable G-keys and backlighting color adjustment features require the software to be installed, however. The memory footprint for the Profiler software (which controls these two things) is around 7MB on my Vista system.

  • looks bad ass… u guys hit the nail in the coffin with this keyboard. I have been looking around for a nice backlit keyboard for a while now, but for some reason they all didn’t fit right. I like the size and the led feature.

  • What’s the maximum current output for the USB port? I Have an original G15, and the USB ports only allow up to .5mA, preventing me from even attempting to use my Thumb drive(at least, one of my thumb drives…) I’m just curious about how much current is left over (From USB 2.0′s 2.0mA Max output per port) after powering a sound card, back-lights, and a keyboard…

    • Hi Clubbavich,

      As with the G15 and G11 before it, and per USB spec, the USB port on the G110 provides a maximum of 100 mA of power. Powered ports, such as those you would find on your PC or on the G19, can provide up to 500mA, but require an external power supply.

  • On the audio front, I like that I could plug my current headset into the keyboard, but as a gamer I do not like that USB Audio will be stealing cycles from my CPU to process the audio. It also means that my audio card will no longer be used for cool effects! This also means there will be yet another audio device showing up everywhere and I hope it isn’t difficult to “turn off” this USB Audio because I would rather be using my sound card and making use of those extra CPU cycles!

    Personally, I would much rather have had a fatter cable with real wires for the I/O of the audio.

    • Hi Schuthrax,

      The USB audio device is only visible to your system if you have a headset (either headphones or microphone) plugged in to it. If there is nothing plugged in to either of the 3.5mm jacks on the keyboard, the USB audio device in the keyboard does not enumerate and therefore will not appear in your list of audio devices or prevent you from using your existing sound card for your headset should you prefer to do so.

    • Hi Paul,

      I’m not sure how exact you need them, but my best measurements are as follows:

      With the palm rest attached its maximum dimensions are approximately 510mm wide by 240mm deep by 24mm tall (to the top of the keycaps). Without the palm rest it is 190mm deep. It is a standard, full-size keyboard with extra width added to account for the two columns of G-keys.

  • I think Quxxy meant no volume controls. I see the media controls, and I think I see a mute button, but I don’t see volume up or down buttons. Personally I prefer a knob, slider, or wheel of sorts, over buttons.

    Also, I’ve had a few game controllers in my time, and I’ve always thought it would be sweet if instead of including software on a CD, they integrated flash memory and saved the software/profiles there, to be automatically run when the device was plugged in.

    Open source software would be nice too, that way people like Jonathan can compile their own Lite versions.

    • Hi perrinoia,

      As with the G19, the G110 features a barrel-style volume control, which is located just to the right of the system mute button in the multimedia control area.

      We’ve thought a lot about your suggestion to integrate the software into a flash chip on the device, but ultimately it was one of those features we had to remove from the wish list. We’re constantly looking at better ways to deliver the software for our products, though, so we’ll continue to think about it. :)

  • Wow this looks awesome – definitely going to be on my Christmas list this year! What is the suggested retail price on this?

    • Hi Rob,

      The recommended retail price for the G110 is $79.99. This information should have been in the original message, so I have added it.

  • I’ll definitely be looking forward to it although I’m no gamer. It’s hard to find a good (aka Logitech or Microsoft) keyboard these days that is wired, doesn’t have flat or glossy keys and has a standard key layout (i.e. doesn’t have a delete key that spans two rows etc.).

    I would’ve bought the G11 if it wasn’t too wide. If only there will be a non-gamer version… I don’t have a use for the macros.

  • I really wish it had green… it seems like it’s the most underrated backlight color of all, even though blue and green are the most popular case mod color themes.

    • Hi johny,

      Unfortunately, I’m not at liberty to reveal information about our future plans with regard to products.

  • WoW. Looks amazing!
    Now I have to wait. Also have a look at your Illuminated Keyboard because
    it also sounds interesting for me!

    One Question I have is: Does it is loud or quiet on Keystroke? The Illuminated
    has a special system, but i just want to ask because this one has normal Keys
    and i hate such loud Keyboards like I have at work :)

    Yours Sincerely

    • Hi Sebastian,

      The keys are standard rubber dome keys. They don’t have a physical or audible click component to them, but they are not quite as quiet as scissor keys.

  • “Unlike other gaming keyboards with these features, the G110 gives you convenient audio jacks and a USB hub port without a tangled mess of cables at the back of your computer. ”

    Excuse me, Logitech claiming they’re the only keyboard with that; my Razer Lycosa Mirror has one USB & audio jacks on the back of it…!

    • Hi Michael,

      Other keyboards with audio jacks and USB ports have two USB cables and two audio cables – making for a significant mass of cabling at the back of the PC. The G110 only has one USB cable coming from the back of it, which makes it much cleaner and simpler to connect. Additionally, with the G110 you don’t have to unplug your PC’s speakers in order to plug your headset into your keyboard.

    I’m in the same boat! It’s far too hard to find a keboard with the standard layout (as the g110 has) and a decent set of mdia buttons with a scroll-wheel volume control. Now call me picky, but it just makes sense.. For 5 years I had my logitech cordless MX duo keyboard before it started to die. it was pretty much perfect regarding keys and usage. standard layout? check! scroll dial for volume? check, although i prefer the g110′s scroll wheel system and location. decent compliment of media keys, INCLUDING a media key to open your music player, check!

    I’d love to see logitech do a version of this keyboard without the G-keys so that regular users could get on with typing properly. for heavens sake, i’ve resorted to using a dell keyboard because it’s the only thing that fits the bill at the moment..

    So in summary, I, and many others i’m sure, would love to see a very similar keyboard to the G110, without the G-keys, without the usb audio (even though i like the feature, it’s not necessary in a standard keyboard, gaming one yes, normal one, no), with some more media-type keys – a calculator button would be fantastic – but with the rest of the features retained.

    I’d love to hear any comments or information on a keyboard like this from you Chris :)


    • Hi Miles,

      As I said before, I’m not at liberty to discuss future plans with regard to products. Thanks for your kind comments, though. :)

  • Thanks for the response. It makes me feel a bit better having an actual human respond. :)

    I suppose it’s just that much more frustrating for me (and my mother who dearly loves hers — we have a standing agreement to immediately purchase any G15s we find at a reasonable price) because I feel the original G15 to be more or less as perfect as is practically feasible; it’s just that you don’t make them any more, so when this one dies, I’m stuck.

  • holy crap. This keyboard is flat out AWESOME looking. im liking the whole red and blue led thing.
    *bows as he isnt worthy*
    I really like the whole headphone and mic plugto the keyboard. quite helpful for someone like me whos soundcard for mic doesnt work properly. It seems like you really did spend the time listening to what the users wants. I not much of a macro user. (even thou Im a gamer) but its interesting to see them being used in the future with this. The price is awesome. im used to seeing a much higher price on logitech stuff.(my current mouse and keyboard set up cost me 150 bucks. mx5000 combo kit) now with this coming out HOPEFULLY. I’ll hear of a new Laser mouse coming out since mine is starting to feel the wear and tear of being used for two years.
    Also i kind of hoped that the volume control ont he keyboard would ahve been like the one seen on the mx5000. a touchpad/screen type. where you scroll your finger up and down to adjust the volume but none the less whatever is fine. it helps prevent from me accident hitting that pesky mute button thats right next to volume and the shift key. Also this wont conflict with setpoint will it? or will the program for this be like a different version of setpoint?

    • Hi SteWieH,

      The G110 ships with the G-Series Profiler software, which is completely separate from and does not conflict with SetPoint.

    • Hi Dday,

      The G110 will be available in Australia around the end of November, and will retail for $99.99 AUD.

    • Hi Mr X,

      The keys are made of transparent plastic which are then given a coat of silver paint and a coat of black paint. The black paint is then etched off with a laser so that the silver remains, and the key is sprayed with a UV-cured hard protective coating. This process is the same one we use with the current G15 and G19 keyboards.

    • Hi [TMC]Kuyaglen,

      The two methods for getting white backlighting are to either use white LEDs, or to combine red, blue, and green LEDs and allow the user to mix them into white with software, as we do with the G19. We discussed backlighting color options with many different customers, and their clear preference in these discussions was for the ability to choose the product’s backlighting color on their own. As there is not sufficient power available over USB to support RGB backlighting plus a USB hub, we chose the two colors most frequently requested by our customers – blue and red.

  • Hi Chris,

    As a longtime and excessive utilzer and giver of gifts of Logitech products (Let’s cover the least 6 years… 2x MX700′s, 2x MX1000′s, 3x G7′s, Z-5500′s, G15 (3x 1st & 2nd Gen), 4x G5′s, QuickCam 4000, Logitech QuickCam Ultra Vision SE, Cordless Action PS2 controller, Freedom 2.4 Cordless Joystick, 2x Cordless Rumblepad, Driving Force GT, G13, DiNovo Edge, G9, MX5500, MX Duo, Illuminated Keyboard, etc… ) I have one concern here…

    With the recent addition of my G13, I now have 6 Logitech applications running simultaneously (1 for the G9, 1 for the LIK, 1 for the QUVSE, 1 for the DFGT and 2 for the G13….). As you can imagine, these are taking up one big honking memory footprint, even with my 12GB.

    Is the G110 going to require another seperate app?
    Are there any plans to consolidate input drivers?

    • Hi Wulf,

      All G-Series keyboards and gameboards (G11, G110, G13, G15, and G19) use the same software. The G110 will, at launch, include a CD that contains the same v3.03 software that is currently available for download from our website. If you already have v3.03 installed for your G13 and plug in a G110, it will be automatically recognized with no additional software install required.

  • I was just wondering what the release will be for Australia, and also the pric (in AUD)?

    I’ve been considering getting a new keyboard for a while now and as a gamer I was looking at getting the G15 v2; I was wondering how the G110 will compare to the G15 v2 from a gaming perspective.



    • Hi Alex,

      The G110 will be available in Australia around the end of November, and will retail for $99.99 AUD. The G110 is nearly identical to the orange G15 in terms of key feeling and key response. Though it lacks the G15′s GamePanel LCD, it does feature integrated USB audio jacks, a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 hub port, six additional G-keys, and more backlighting options.

  • I have the G15 Gaming keyboard, the one with 18 G-keys x 3 modes = 54 G-keys. I’m not sure why two keyboards would ever be named the same model and have different number of G-keys, but that’s for another blog.

    I like everything on the G15 board including the LCD display and layout of the volume controls. The spinning volume control knob, in my opinion, is a much nicer control, easier and quicker to use, has more precision and is in a better location than having a button or slider bar.

    Improvements in the customizable backlighting colors are a plus, but you had to know the users would also want to use green and yellow and mixtures of them. That’s like doing something halfway, or 2/3rds in the color world spectrum.

    USB 2.0 port support is a big plus and will be greatly appreciated!
    Maybe two cables would be acceptable to the community to get a 2nd USB port and green color added.

    The LCD display will be missed as well as the 54 total G-keys. I personally use over 36 G-keys, so the G110 G-keys would be a downgrade for me. I never did like that the “other” G15 keyboard lost all the extra G-keys.

    Also, most people read from left to right, so having the G-keys numbered 1-6 down the left side of the first column of keys and then 7-12 in the 2nd column is just a little confusing. Placing G1 and G7 beside each other and then G2/G8, etc. doesn’t seem to be the best logical layout vs. G1/G2, G3/G4, etc.

    The G15 and G110 are gaming / power user keyboards and I would venture to guess that the vast majority who buy these more-expensive types of keyboards aren’t worried about keyboard trays that they’re trying to squeeze a smaller keyboard into. Full sized, high quality keyboards are the only ones I ever use. I always pitch any keyboard that comes with a new PC that feels like cheap plastic or has been shrunk or had the keys rearranged from the normal layout or the spacebar shrunk. Hopefully the G110 keyboard does not feel cheap.

    The G15 palm rest is attachable if the user wants to use it. The G110 palm rest appears to have been shrunk as it is tapered and only gives full palm support in the middle of the board (unless there is an attachable piece not shown in the blog that gives the additional full length-of-the-keyboard rectangular palm rest shape). If the palm rest is just as shown, then I think this will be a big problem. My hands (as well as most people) rest below and slightly on the outside of the A-S-D-F and J-K-L-; keys as I type. It appears that the G110 palm rest does not give full support to a user’s palm under the A-S-D-F section.

    I just upgraded my G-Series Key profiler software to the latest version (3.03.133 8/13/2009). I was hoping (and had submitted an email to Customer Support back in Jan 2008) that the G-Series key profiler would be easier to use. None of the ideas I submitted have been improved on so maybe you can shed some light on these items.

    1.) Need a simple way to rearrange what’s assigned from one function key over to another function key.
    a.) Would be nice to have a graphical window to drag / drop / rearrange key assignments (in case we want to rearrange a lot of them) and allow us to SAVE or CANCEL our changes (don’t allow the changes to take affect unless we approve everything after we look over our proposed changes).

    b.) If a graphical rearrangement window is to hard, at least allow us to CUT / COPY / PASTE one key’s info to another key (this should be added to the context menu items when we click on a function button).

    Currently I have to retype everything into a new key when all I wanted to do was move it to another key.

    2.) SHORTCUT assignment’s Browse button dialog needs tweaked
    a.) When I assign a SHORTCUT to a G15 keyboard function key and click on the BROWSE button in the EDIT SHORTCUT window, it OPENS a dialog box that ALWAYS points to my DESKTOP. It would be nice to have it point to the last location I used while using your software.

    I usually have to drill into MY COMPUTER, then pick my drive letter (C:), then DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS, then my user name or ALL USERS, then START MENU, then PROGRAMS, then find the program I want and point to it’s shortcut.

    Then every time I go to assign another shortcut, I have to do this all over again… Every time…

    It would be very nice and user friendly if the browse button would open the dialog box to the last shortcut location we were at while using your software.

    b.) Also, if I EDIT an EXISTING function key that has a shortcut assigned to it already, and I want to change the shortcut assignment and I use the BROWSE button, it STILL opens to my DESKTOP. In this case, it should open to the location where the current shortcut points to and allow me to start my browsing from that location.

  • dang this will cost a lot in Canadian dollars :C, this keyboard missing one thing which i’m looking for -slim key cap :P although i will pick up this keyboard when it hits stores :D

  • Some games block using macroes (like World of Warcraft) are we still able to use keyboard macro with this keyboard?


    • Hi Vrhunski,

      I use healing macros all the time with my druid, but I logged in just now to make sure that World of Warcraft does not currently block macros. They do frown upon (and will ban for) using macros to play the game unattended, but if you are at your keyboard playing the game you shouldn’t have anything to worry about. The G110 functions exactly the same way that the other G-Series keyboards do with regard to macros.

  • Chris, just a quick question on the keystroke depth, Lately it seems most KB’s have taken a shorter stroke depth more akin to a laptop keyboard than the older more tactile KB’s. I run a G15, Is this going to be closer to that, or a laptop?

  • Shame about the reduced number of G-keys but besides that it looks great! I’m saddened to see that this will not be in Europe until January will there be a way of importing to the United Kingdom via the Logitech store or will i have to purchase via a third party?

    • Hi Tom,

      The US Logitech store is unable to ship product to Europe. Additionally, there will be no UK layout G110 keyboards shipped to the US, so if you’re interested in the UK layout it will be available in January.

  • Hi Chris,

    First I admit I like the Logitech series of keyboards. I had many models throughout the years and I had found the best being the Wave. How come the gaming keyboards no longer feature this economical design? We know the G110 is designed for games. Wouldn’t it be more logical to make the keys brighter to read and sense instead? My current keyboard is a G15 keyboard and it had perform perfectly. The only concern I had with this keyboard is the keys are quite dark and I could barely read them even at maximum light settings. I admit there is something very thrilling when shooting aliens in the dark whenever I am playing games. NTL keep up the good work and see you at the games.

  • Looks like a great Keyboard.

    How ever the Lack of Green LED is extremely disspointing for 2 reasons.

    1 if it had RED green and BLUE leds you could make just about any color for the back light keys..

    2 I just plain like green more than red..

    I do hope logitec puts out a version with all 3 Red green and blue LEDs or at least on with blue and green…

    Also I wish there was a version with the big enter keys like the old mainframe/sgi workstation keyboards

    Like this

    That is what my non-lighted keyboard is like and I like it better than Usa layout.

    Now I have to pick between this or a g-19…

    I got a satiek eclipse 2 lighted keyboard and was not happy with it at all the keys are spaced out funny the back light is not that great. I cant use wasd and hit all the number keys on the top row with comfort and stuff like that.

    So I went back to my old non lighted keyboard. this looks like a good replacement
    I liked the g-series a lot i have a g-15 on another PC…

  • Oh yes and about power for RGB lights…. I would much rather hae RGB lights than a hub,

    IT is nice to have a hub in the keyboard and all but I would much rather have RGB lights since I could just buy a powered USB hub If i needed it, but geting RGB lighted keybaord would require a soldering iron and more time than I am willing to spend and a voided warrenty.

    and my PC has like 9 usb ports and I use 3 at the most… but that is just me

  • Hi,

    I would like to know if will be available in brazil, or if I can buy by internet and a friend send to me from Us. And when will be available in Us.


    • Hi jonathan,

      The G110 should be available in Brazil in early to mid December. It will be available in the US in late November.

  • Hi there, this keyboard was looking alright.

    I’d like to voice my opinion on what I think makes a good keyboard, and how this has failed-

    1) Audio. As both a competitive gamer and serious music listener, I want my audio exact. This means a soundcard, which means any sort of USB sound input is useless to me. This is starting to be featured on many products now-a-days, I hope it doesn’t become too prominent. I think everyone should deserve to hear great audio, and at the moment 99% of onboard/USB sound just doesn’t provide it. Granted some people don’t care, but I prefer to think they are ignorant to how much better a good sound card and output is.

    2) Responsiveness. 8ms lag time? If this is a gaming keyboard, I am extremely suprised to hear you haven’t invested more on getting the fundamentals right, and would rather be going for extra features and colours. Razer are doing things right at the moment, if they’re to be believed, they have perfected a wireless mouse with 1ms response time. I have to say no wireless logitech mouse I’ve ever touched has ever felt anywhere near responsive, and I want the same from my keyboards. Surely after all this time you could be improving on response times in a tried and tested wired keyboard? 500 or 1000hz would have had me sold on this keyboard, but 125hz puts me off.

    I do applaud you getting 5 simul keypresses around wasd, I am assuming this includes all the shift/ctl/alt keys on that side as well.

    3) Ergonomics. I really don’t get the impasse between gaming and ergonomics. For some reason, they just can’t go together, at least that’s what everyone seems to think. I don’t see why not. Everyone using the computer for long periods of time should have a comfortable and easy to type on keyboard, gamers especially. I absolutely love what you’ve done with the logitech wave, this is the keyboard I use at the moment. All your mice also usually fit the hand really well. So I just don’t get why you won’t apply some of what’s in the wave to your gaming keyboards. Instead it is always the old rigid square layout which is always bad for the wrists in the long run.

    I’d also be interested to know what percentage of owners of logitech keyboards with G-keys actually use >80% of them. I’ve never seen the point of custom keys, the number of games that can make use of them have always seemed to be a very small minority to me. I’m sure there are differing opinions on this but I wonder what the stats are on their use.

    And if you were going to go with customisable colour I just can’t see why you didn’t go with 3 leds to really let people much around, it would’ve given the feature a FAR better impact. I’m sure 3 would be far more costly to implement, but I’m also sure you realise that given that the large percentage of ‘serious’ gamers likely to buy this keyboard are male, different shades of purple probably wouldn’t be their choicest feature to have.

    In this respect, if the costs were too high, and I was making the design decisions, I would have simply produced the keyboard in 3-5 different colours (hopefully still cost effective) to let people have their choice and perhaps being able to spend the money saved on variable lighting on other features in the keyboard.

    • Hi Matt,

      Thanks for your commentary – it’s very useful to know what people think about what we’re doing so that we can improve in future products.

      The decision to only include two colors of backlighting LEDs was entirely driven by the power budget of the USB port. There is just not enough room in the 500 mA alloted to a USB product to have three-color backlighting, a USB hub, and a USB audio device. And, since it is not permitted under the USB specification for a product to have two USB cables, we had to make the tough decision to only include two backlighting LED colors in the G110.

  • Will the european version have the same layout as the US version?
    A lot of european keyboards I’ve encountered have a smaller left shift key because there’s a | \ key right next to it.
    I personally find this very annoying because on those keyboards my pinky rests on the edge of the shift key, instead of comfortably on the flat part. (maybe I just have small hands…)
    I live in the netherlands, if that helps.

    • Hi Gittun,

      The European layouts for G110 are the same ones we used for G15 and G19, and have the left Shift key size that you describe.

  • Chris Pate wrote:
    “The area around WASD is capable of recognizing five simultaneous keypresses.”

    Is that all?. multiple simultaneous should be all over the board. Especially around the arrow keys plus left alt + shift simultaneous. Quite a few games are not wasd.
    So Chris, tell me if this is an ‘all games’ board?
    When i play Need for speed undercover will it be numb on the right arrow key when pressed simultaneous with forward arrow key? 4 years ago the standard Logitechs did fine, then the newer generations sucked at this point so when my old Logitech had lost most letters (they wear off) i went Merc Stealth. Sadly on this awesomely fine Merc the letters are wearing off as well.
    If your board does great on the ‘simultaneous keys’ issue and also offers robust not weraing off letters i might consider going Logitech again.

    • Hi Merc,

      Only the area around the WASD keys has been optimized for 5-key simultaneous input, as the majority of games that people play that require 5-key simultaneous input are first-person or MMORPG-type games that use WASD as their primary movement input keys. This is the same type of performance as on the G15 keyboard. The G19 features full 5-key simultaneous input across the entire keyboard.

  • Hi Chris,

    first, thanks for answer so fast.

    so, if will come to brazil, the keyboard layout will be english(without ç), or will have “brazil” version with ABNT2 layout ? do you have some website from a logitech resaler here in brazil?


    • Hi Jonathan,

      There is no Brazilian or Portuguese layout version of the G110, so you will most likely see the US/English version in Brazil.

  • one model for both Mac and PC/win?
    then I have to have the Windows logo on your keyboard?
    if it is really so dramatic;)

  • Hello,

    I do not know what keyboard layout this is but will there be one that is like the US layout but with: an “L” enter key, a large back space key, and a large shift key (basically a two row enter key) – or in other words, like a UK layout without the pound key/large left shift key. Why is Logitech not offering this kind of layout? I can read from the comments that you provide sound explanation why chose certain features and I appreciate the answers. Please enlighten me on this one.

    Thank you very much!

    • Hi Fleeb,

      We manufacture our gaming keyboards with a standardized layout scheme. The layout you are describing is not one that we use for gaming keyboards. The G110′s variants has the same layouts that we used for the orange G15 and the G19 keyboards.

  • Hello Chris,

    I’m French and I am really interested in this new keyboard G110, it is possible to get one free? ^ ^ I’m joking, Logitech products are really great for the gamers, thank you for making quality products. I have a G9, a product of quality !!

    (if you have one free for Europe, do not hesitate, contact me at ;)

    question : sincerely, the keys they are a lot of noise? I want a silent keyboard…

    see you later

    ps : an european model please if iyou offered me a free ^^ and sorry for English , have a good day !


    • Hi f!g4,

      The keyboard has standard rubber-dome-style keys, and sounds about the same as a G15 or G19. It is not as quiet as a notebook-style keyboard.

  • I’m defiantly going to buy this keyboard when it’s out in the UK, but how much can I expect to pay for it in the UK? Around £50? Hope it’s around that number! Any more then £55 and I’ll have to look at something else!

  • Hi it looks great ^^ but I would like to know if you are going to sell a spanish version with letter “ñ” and accents. I hope so cause it’s annoying to have to use a keyboard for gaming and another one for writting and working :S

    thanks a lot,


    • Hi Laia,

      We will sell a Spanish-layout version in Europe (part number 920-002237). In the Americas, we will have the US-layout version.

  • Great looking keyboard! Looks like it’s exactly what I want, however, I JUST purchased a G11 about three weeks ago… any chance of a trade-in with Logitech? Or any other way that I could be helped out? Might be a long-shot, but I figured I’d check anyway. I’m loving my G11, but this G110 far surpasses it.

    • Hi BillyDragon,

      I’m glad you’re enjoying your G11. We had a lot of fun working on it. :)

      With regard to your question – unfortunately, there are no such trade-in programs in place, and it is very unlikely that we would have one.

  • I have this reall odd keyboard I got with my alienware PC like way back in 2001,

    This alienware keyboard has a really strange non standard layout that i have never seen on any other keyboard ever.

    It is not a usa layout and I can not find out what kinf of keyboard layout this is called.

    But this keyboard has become my fav keyboard I tried going back to the OLD standard USA layout and I don’t care for it as much.

    It is obviously it is not backlighted or even USB, So i have been looking into geting a lighted keyboard so I can see it in the dark(and it look sweet) and it is just basic no macros.

    Will Logitech ever offer a keyboard with this odd style of keys or something like it? I have seen other from another country that looks like this odd alienware keyboard I have used for years but they are either not lighted or have non english keys…

    See picture of odd alienware keyboard and keys here.

    also see the closeness of the arrow keys to the place where the page down/page up spot is? I liek that a lot it menas i can push the arrowkeys on some games and still hit the keys at the top with the same hand since there is not a gap there.

    And………………… Does the G-110 or g19 function as a normal usb keybaord without drivers?

    Like lets say I want to plug it into a device that uses standard usb keyboards will it work as a normal keyboard without drivers?

    • Hi Oddkeyboardguy,

      I’m unable to comment on what we might do in the future, but I can say that I am almost certain Logitech has not shipped a keyboard to retail with that layout in the past.

      The G110 and G19 do not require you to install the included software in order to function as keyboards. Only the G-keys, the Color GamePanel LCD, and the backlighting color change functions require an install of software.

      One item to note – because they have integrated USB hubs, they may not work in some situations where the environment you are plugging them into does not support a keyboard attached to a USB hub (some BIOSes, etc.)

  • “One USB cable: Unlike other gaming keyboards with these features, the G110 gives you convenient audio jacks and a USB hub port without a tangled mess of cables at the back of your computer. All you need is one available USB port.”

    This is something I can get behind. Why have a mess of cables tucked behind your computer when you can have it in front of you?

    • Hi Ralph,

      The underside of the G110 also features cable routing channels, so that what’s in front of you can be both convenient and less of a mess. ;)

  • Just curious if your run you headphones through the keyboard and its using usb to plug into the pc, does that mean you will be bypassing your sound card all together like most usb headsets or are you still able to use the sound card in the computer to control it. I have dolby headphone on my sound card which I like to use and I was wondering if this would still be possible if you ran the headphone through the keyboard.

    • Hi Seantos,

      The G110′s audio jacks do not connect in any way to your sound card, so adjusting features in that sound card will not affect the sound coming out of a headset plugged into the G110. It is a distinct, separate audio device.

  • Hi again,

    As a follow-up to my question, I understand that the layout between G-Series keyboards are made consistent. What I want to know though is that why not the layout I described was not exactly considered? If not an official response, I just want to know if is that because that is what the market really wants, etc?


  • So, whats new compared to G11? G11 has 18 progammable g keys, g110 has only 12. G11 also have 3 m keys, just as g110 does, and the game mode key. Is the difference the following:

    usb2.0, headset support, red light?

  • Whoo, just built a new rig and was looking for a gaming keyboard to go with it! Got a few questions though:

    1. I saw the G19 has a Multi-key Input feature, where you can use five keys at once. Does this keyboard also have that feature? If not how many simaltaneous key presses can it support? (I lost count of the stupid moves I had to do in games because of the computer going “beep” when I push more than 2 buttons or so)

    2. Colors: I see that this is a bit more limited compared to the G19. I love green, so I ask will it be possible to have a green color? If not, would it be realistic to expect a software update in the future that might include more colors?

    3. How is the feel of the keyboard? Are the key presses like the G15 and G19? Or is it unique?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi SomeDude,

      The G110 has similar multi-key performance to the G15 keyboard, in that the area around the WASD keys has been optimized to allow for more simultaneous keypresses than non-gaming keyboards. It does not feature full five-key simultaneous input across the entire keyboard like the G19 does.

      There are only two colors of LED in the G110 – red and blue. It is not possible for software to make them green.

      The key feeling on the G110 is very similar to both the orange G15 and the G19.

  • Hey I was wondering when this is going to release in the US. I’ve looked all over and I can’t seem to find it. I really want to get this for my new setup I’m about to get. Also is this better than the g15? I don’t think I need an LCD screen because all that stuff is usually already on the computer screen. Thanks.

    • Hi Otto,

      It will be available for online sales in the US in mid to late November. You can also pre-order it from various websites, including ours.

  • May I know if it’s possible to do special delivery to Singapore before your launch date at end Nov? I want to purchase it for my friend’s birthday which is coming in a week’s time! Sob…

  • Hello, Do you know when will the keyboard be available in Israel (counts as europe?)?
    I can consider my keyboard as drums Oo and i really need a new keyboard :P
    Oh and, do you know how much will it cost in Israel? 79.99$ as well?

    • Hi NImrod,

      All of EMEA is serviced by our European warehlouse, so distributors in Israel should be able to order the G110 from there when it arrives in January. If and when units will ship to Israel is a much more difficult question to answer, and I recommend talking to local retailers about it to get a better idea. Pricing will be roughly equivalent to €79,99.

    • Hi Baby,

      The G110 will be available for distributors in Asia to order in late November or early December. When and whether it will come to Malaysia depends on Malaysian distributors ordering it. I would recommend checking with local shops to see if they have information about it, and to express an interest in ordering it to them.

  • Chris, this keyboard looks great but I have one concern. I use a switch that allows me to use a monitor and keyboard on two different computers at the same time. That switch has a PS2 input for the keyboard. Do you know if there is a PS2/USB adapter that will work well with this keyboard? Thanks.

  • Chris, not to belabor the point . . . but has it been tested with any of the PS2/USB adapters that are available on the market? I just want to be clear that what you’re saying is that this keyboard will not work with an adapter, is that right? Thanks, again.

    • Hi Steve,

      The G110 will absolutely not work on a PS/2 port even with a PS/2 adapter. It is a USB-only device, and cannot communicate with a PS/2 port.

  • @ Oddkeyboardguy

    Not sure exactly what you find ‘odd’ about the layout of that keyboard, but it looks like a standard UK/European design with a bigger enter key, though not all of them have such a small backspace. The Steelseries 7G is very similar in layout, but is not backlit. If you want one that is backlit have a look at the Saitek Eclipse (original not II or III):

  • Hello again. I saw your responses on some websites and I loved how dead straight you were on to the point. I have more queries with regards to this keyboard as I’m trying to make up my mind between this and the G19 for my gaming rig:

    1. I see it’s possible to adjust brightness levels of backlighting on this keyboard. Is this a feature that the G19 does not have?

    2. I saw on another website where you replied on a question as to why this keyboard does not have RGB colors but is only limited to Red and Blue (and shades of it) due to needing an additional power supply since it also has a USB 2.0 port. Would it be realistic to wait for the release of an RGB version without a USB 2.0 port? Also, is there a link where can find information on future Logitech products other than review/news sites? Furthermore, is this keyboard capable of getting a white backlighting color by adjusting shades?

    3. How is the durability of the keyboard (including not wearing out)? Is it at the same level as the G19, better, worse?

    4. I heard ASUS motherboards have issues with G series keyboards. Is this only the case with regards to opening the BIOS? Does this keyboard have the same issue as well? And what would be the best way to get rid of this issue if so, a BIOS flash to an updated version?

    5. appears to have this keyboard in stock already. . Does this mean the keyboard is released?

    I apologise for the bombardment of yet more questions but I hope this will be able to help out those who are thinking of purchasing various Logitech products like me.

    Kind regards.

    • Hi SomeDude,

      Sorry for the delay in answering your questions – I missed seeing your post somehow until today.

      1) In both the G110 and the G19, the color of the backlighting is changed by adjusting the intensity of the different colors of backlighting LEDs. Since changing the brightness of the LEDs affects the color of the backlighting on these keyboards, there is no dedicated brightness adjustment button on these keyboards – only a backlighting on/off button. Backlighting brightness is set as a function of the backlighting color selected.

      2) We don’t announce information about future products until they’re ready to ship. So if it’s not on the website, I’m really not at liberty to talk about it. As far as white goes – without green (or white) LEDs it is not possible for the keyboard to have white backlighting.

      3) The G110 and the G19 use an identical manufacturing process with regard to their keys, and should have identical wear and durability characteristics.

      4) The issues we’ve seen with some motherboards are entirely related to the way that these motherboards handle keyboards that are connected behind a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed hub. Since from a USB standpoint both the G110 and the G19 are connected (internally) to a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed hub, the behavior of these motherboards is the same with either keyboard connected. Some users have had success with these boards when a feature called “EHCI handoff” is disabled in the BIOS. A true fix would need to come from the motherboard manufacturer (or chipset manufacturer), though, because at its core this is an issue with the way the motherboard chipset handles USB timing while the PCIE bus is being stressed with large amounts of data – e.g. SLI video cards rendering a game at high resolutions and framerates.

      5) As you can see below, a couple people have already received their G110s, so it’s definitely available in the US. :)

    • The G110 will be available for Canadian distributors to order when it arrives in our North American warehouse around the end of November. When it actually gets to Canada depends on a number of factors, including when (or whether) Canadian distributors order it, when (or whether) retailers order it from them, potential customs delays, and a number of other factors. My best estimate is that it could be available in Canada in late November or early December, but I do not have a better idea than that. I would recommend checking with a local Future Shop or Best Buy to get more accurate information.

    • Hi Malik,

      The G110 has red and blue backlighting LEDs, so you can have the keyboard be red, or blue, or you can adjust the intensity of either type of LED to get different shades of purple. You can have anything from a light pinkish hue to something deep and almost blue. There are four preset values, but you can easily customize the color in the software to be a different shade if you don’t like the preset.

    • Hi Utsav,

      It’s difficult for me to say if or when this product will be available in India specifically, but it will be available in the AP region in the latter part of this year. The G110 has a 125Hz report rate.

  • I am curious, can it perform well with a KVM switch?
    Also which KVM switch does Logitech recommend to be used with their products? thanks

    • Hi Khaled,

      Most KVMs do not act as a USB hub or passthrough, but rather emulate a USB keyboard and mouse and then pass through keyboard and mouse info to whichever system is “active”. The additional features of the G110 (hub, audio, G-keys) are not part of a standard USB keyboard, and as such would not be accurately emulated by this type of KVM. As with other G-Series keyboards, the G110 will likely not function correctly behind a KVM.

    • Hi Michael,

      I’m not really at liberty to list the components we use to manufacture the product, but I can tell you that I’m currently using a G110 with headphones that have an impedance rating of 32 ohms. Your 150 ohm headphones should work fine.

  • I got a couple question about this keyboard.

    1. Is this keyboard compatible for Mac?

    2. Does the keyboard use a USB port to plug in or something else ?

  • It looks like a sweet keyboard but what is the response time on it, like 0.2-0.1 ms, what are we talking here?

  • Great keyboard – best I’ve ever had, so far.

    I keep hitting the G1 key when I go for ESC, but I’ll learn.

  • looks like a great keyboard.

    when will this keyboard out in the Netherlands? (in europa)

    thanks in advance!

    • The G110 will be available in Europe starting in January. Whether it will make it to shops in the Netherlands in January is difficult to say, but you should be able to purchase it online then.

  • Chris,

    Your responses have been thoughtful and quick so far, so thank you from the community. My question is: Can you differ the color based on the key location? For example, I want the M keys to be Red and the QWERTY keys to be blue, and function keys to be Purple. Is this possible? With a firmware upgrade? Or is the hardware such that independent coloring cannot be accomplished?

    • Hi Spongematt!,

      With the exception of the M-keys, the MR key, and the status indicator LEDs, all of the backlighting must be the same color. Area-specific backlighting is not possible, even with different firmware. The M-keys and Scroll/CAPS/NUM lock LEDs are an orange-ish amber, while the MR key and the mute LEDs for headphone and microphone are all red.

      Also, I’m very happy to be able to answer questions. It’s actually pretty tough working on a product and not being able to discuss it with people, and it’s really good to finally get feedback on it.

    • Hi,

      Worldwide product launches are not always simultaneous, and as a result it sometimes takes longer for the product to appear in some countries than in others. As our Canadian website typically only features products that are currently available for sale in Canada, this is likely an indicator that the G110 has not yet arrived there. I can’t say definitively when it will be available in Canada, but it should be before the end of the year.

  • Hi,

    very interesting keyboard – should be a hit
    I have 3 questions:

    1 – Does the OS “see” the internal sound device as an additional soundcard?

    2 – Is it technically possible for a hardware modder to change the backlight LEDs in order to get a different range of backlight colors? Yes, I’m aware that such modding, if doable, would void the warranty… ^^

    3 – How about support for GNU/Linux? Will Logitech provide drivers for this OS as well, or at least publish some specs which could help to build one?


    • Hi Pascal,

      1 – The OS does see the internal sound device as an additional sound card, but only when a headset is plugged in. The way I use this is to send all of my Ventrilo audio (headphones and mic) through the headset plugged into the G110, while game sounds come out of my speakers (Z-10s, with an LCD that I use to see who’s talking in Vent :) )
      2 – Yes, this is technically possible with a good understanding of electronics, the power properties of LEDs, and soldering. And how to use a screwdriver, I guess. As you suggest, it would absolutely void the warranty and is not something that I can recommend people trying. I will say I’ve seen quite a few of the LED/backlighting mods that people have done on our previous G-Series keyboards, though, and personally think they’re pretty cool.
      3 – With regard to explicit Linux support, it is one of many things we consider during the software development process, but it hasn’t happened yet. I can’t really talk about future plans, but there is past history with G-Series keyboards of useful specs ending up in the hands of Linux developers. This has not been an official thing and it’s really hard for me to say whether it would happen again.

  • Thanks for your fast reply Chris.

    The way you use the keyboard, as described in your answer to my question 1, is exactly what I’m looking for! This internal sound device is definitely a great added value.

    I’m in Europe, and thanks to this blog I know that I have a good reason to wait until january :)

  • Hi
    I have some questions about the new g110.
    1. In the 1st part of the blog you said that keyboard can be customized in anyways with the blue and red LEDs and mix them together does this mean that I can have half keyboard red and half keyboard blue also?

    2. Will it be shipped to Estonia if yes then when?
    Thank you in advance!

    • Hi John,

      To answer all of your questions:

      1) The entire keyboard will have the same backlighting color – it is not possible to have some keys be one color and other keys be another
      2) The G110 will be available for distributors in Europe to purchase in January.
      3) There will be a Swedish layout available, but our website’s ordering system only allows shipments to the country selected. As there is no online Logitech store for Estonia at this point in time, our online store cannot ship direct to Estonian customers.
      4) Whether it will be shipped to shops in Estonia depends on whether Estonian distributors purchase it to resell it to shops in your country.

  • i have some questions,

    how do the keys feel? are the like/the same as the logitech g15?

    this is from

    ”Bought this keyboard today and returned it today. The quality is good, but the letters on the keys are too small and the back lite is way too dim for my old eyes. Also there is no brightness control just off and on.”

    are the letters on the keys smaller than on the g15? he says that you cant turn the brightness up, can this be fixed in a firemware update?

    thanks in advance!

    • Hi Sjoerd,

      The key feeling is very close to the key feeling of the orange G15, and the character size is identical. The maximum backlighting brightness of the G110 as shipped is not able to be increased via firmware. Depending on the color selected, the apparent brightness is the same as the orange G15. Different colors can appear to be brighter or dimmer than others based on the way the eye perceives color, even though the amount of power being given to the backlighting LEDs is the same.

  • Sorry to beat a dead horse on the backlit 2 led thing, but would it be possible to stick a selctor switch on the back that would only turn on 2 leds at a time giving you the option of Red-Blue, Blue-Green, or Green-Red. This way you still stick to your power usage of only 2 leds working at the same time, as well as pleasing everyone with all the colours being availble. I’m not an electronics expert so I’m not sure if this can be done but if it can it could be a future updgrade for your next keyboard version.

    I really love the “disable windows key” button. Now I don’t have to do it through the registry.

    Just a though. Love the keyboard btw, plan on getting one.

    • Hi Steve,

      While it’s not an option on the G110, your suggestion is something we can consider for future product development. It’s very clear to us that our customers would like to see the option of RGB backlighting in our gaming keyboards, and we’ll use that feedback as we develop new ones.

    • Hi Lukas,

      If you plug the G35 into the G110 it would appear to the system as a separate audio device. The G110′s audio chip is only enabled if there is an analog headset plugged into its 3.5mm jacks. Any USB headset, like the G35, is a separate audio device with its own audio chip, and does not interact with the G110′s audio chip at all.

  • Is the best keyboard from Logitech the G19?
    I mean, should I go for the G110 or the G19? And which one is cheaper?
    Is a keyboard that important for gaming? I mean i use a gaming mouse and it helps me a lot but is a keyboard REALLY needed (in FPS I’m not a WoW player so I dont need so much G keys)? Anyways I’ll just wait untill I have a new pc(I’ve been playing in a laptop for the last 2 years) and then I’ll see if I buy it or not.

    Good work Logitech, keep going! ;)

    • The G110 is our entry-level gaming keyboard, while the G19 is our top-of-the-line. The G19 has a suggested retail price of $199.99, while the G110 goes for $79.99. The major benefit of the G110 for FPS players, apart from the characters being visible in the dark, is the effort we have put in to ensure that the area around the WASD keys can have any five keys pressed simultaneously without any of the keys dropping out. Additionally, the G-keys can be useful even in FPS games. For example, you can program in a favorite loadout for CounterStrike and press a single G-key to buy all your weapons, armor, etc for that round.

  • Why is this keyboard 20 dollars Canadian more then the same keyboard in the usa? At todays exchange rate $79.99 US is $85 CDN. Seems like Logitech is trying to rip off Canadian costumers

    • Hi Zonged,

      Our recommend pricing in Canada is set independent of exchange rate, as exchange rates fluctuate. It is ultimately up to the reseller to set pricing, not Logitech, so the price you see in-store could quite possibly be different from the recommended pricing based on the retailer’s decision.

  • Oh thank you,
    but my mouse (G9) has also got programmable buttons and the macro’s dont work as it’s supposed to. I have to click the key like 7 times and so it’s faster by doing it myself. I tried with every possible delay of seconds while making my macros no way… Do the G keys work everytime?
    thanks in advance

    • Like most things in your computer, the G110′s macro software will do exactly what you tell it to. The difficulty I always have with this (and the reason I ultimately gave up on becoming a programmer) is what I think I’m telling the software to do is not necessarily what I actually am telling it to do. :) All the keyboard can do is play back keystrokes in the order it’s told and with the timing it’s told to do so, and it will do that the same way every time. Whether or not that works every time in an unspecified game is difficult to say.

  • great :@
    yet another Logitech dev that will only function w/ Windows
    have left that sinking raft 4 Linux since the v!$t0 debacle & have no plan 2 return 2 it
    guess i’ll replace my original (blue) G15 w/ a Saitek kbd

    • Hi Mister C,

      I don’t actually know of any gaming keyboards with Linux software support, and our G-Series keyboards are the only ones that ship with Mac support. Linux is something we consider during every new product development cycle, but support for it has not yet made the cut. We have had our gaming keyboard’s specs released to the Linux dev community in the past, though, so it’s possible the same will happen again.

  • When will this keyboard be available in New Zealand? Looking to use it on my 2010 computer build. Thx!

    PS: To the comment above me, don’t be so hard on Chris, it’s your fault you jumped to Linux. Logitech aren’t obliged to make a product just for the you and your OS.

    • Hi Mister C,

      It should be available in New Zealand before the end of the year, but it’s really not possible for me to give a more accurate date.

  • Well, I returned mine to Amazon the other day. “Mac compatible” should mean more than just “some keys work as intended”. I was not willing to learn that Print Screen and Home were going to adjust the contrast of my monitor. :thumbsdown:

  • Chris,

    thank you for your update.
    i suspected Logitech had once released some code to the open source community as there is a G15Tools set of files that allow to make full use of the G1x features (or even of keyboards from other brands, for that matter) but the installation is so pedestrian that i never got thru with it. i have however to agree with a post made earlier that the G-keys are only really needed for combat games but not for (e.g.) civilian flight simulation.
    what would be very nice would be a back lit “normal 105 keys keyboard”. i guess that’s what an Illuminated keyboard should be, but does it have to cost over five times the price of a classic kbd 200 ?

  • Hallo,
    are the keys removable so can i take out the z-key and change it with the y-key, cuz i’m from europe and wanna buy this keyboard, but it’s only available in USA.


    • Hi Niruena,

      You could theoretically do this but I would recommend waiting until the product is released in Europe. It will be widely available in Europe within the next 30-60 days.

    • Hi Mannam,

      Backligting color on the G110 is modified by changing the brightness of the LEDs. When you choose a color with the color picker, it modulates the amount of power being sent to them. Changing the brightness of the LEDs changes the color of the backlighting.

  • Hey, i appreciate that you are readily talking to people in the community and asnwering questions, not many companies or people at all do this, so thanks :)

    I have a quick question, and that basically is, what is the estimated release date for Australia ?

    This is the perfect keyboard for me, but i can’t find it in any online stores (not even pre- orderable).

    Just wondering, thanks.

    • Hi Jeremey,

      It’s not a problem – I like being able to talk about the products I work on. It really helps me to understand what we’ve done right, and what we can improve for the future.

      As with New Zealand, the G110 should be available in Australia before the end of the year. It’s really not possible for me to give a more accurate date than that.

    • Hi kENSHu,

      It should be widely available in Europe in the next 30-60 days, but it’s really not possible for me to give a more accurate date.

  • Since i cannot change the brightness, can I manually reduce it by setting both the R and B mode lower?

    • Hi Sekkiy,

      Yes, you can reduce the overall brightness in the backlighting color adjustment area of the software.

  • ….can’t get it at malaysia …>< i like this keyboard , coz of the got micro key, backlight and it look cool and i think still within my budget

    hope got more info about the date comming to Malaysia , coz is time to change my keyboard.. if too long , i mayb getting other 1…plz advice ^^

  • I’m from The Netherlands and I’ve noticed that only the UK and Belgian keyboard layouts are available for the G19. Is there any chance that the G110 (and perhaps also the G19) will be available here with the US-International layout?

    Because, like a lot of other people, haven’t got the time nor patience to get used to the UK layout, especially after working with the US-International layout since… well… ever since I started using a computer.

    • Hi Michelle,

      There is a US-International layout for the G110, which should be available when the G110 ships in Europe. Whether it will be available in shops around where you live in the Netherlands is difficult to say, however.

  • Just got the g110, looks and plays great. Quick question, I noticed I can record keystrokes with delay within the Logitech software but can I do that within a game? I know the “on the fly” macros can be done in game but they disregard delays in between keys. The game in question is Aion, thanks

    • Hi tbilt,

      Click on “Settings”, then “Profiler”. In the third section down there should be a checkbox that says “Record delays during Quick Macro creation.”

  • How long (approx.) is the usb cord ?
    Do you have any information about bigining of shipments of G110 with russian layout (ENG/RU id 920-002240) ? I already see in our stores (Latvia) keyboards for Finland (2239) , but nobody knows when russian layout will be ready…
    Is there any possibility to control brightness of the keyboard, using some kind of software?

    • Hi Dimitracos,

      The cable is around 1.8m (6′) long.
      There will be a Russian layout available, but whether it is or will be available for purchase in Latvia is not possible for me to say.
      The brightness can be controlled in the color adjustment area of the software.

  • nice keyboard
    but when will it be released in uk?
    and do i have to pay for shipping?
    kinda like the keyboard looks good and the G-key would be useful for me :)

  • Hi, I’m very interested in this keyboard.

    2 questions:

    1. Is there any anti-ghosting ability?
    2. Will this be available with Italian layout? (or at least UK international?)

    Thanks for replying,

    • Hi Clemente,

      The G110 will recognize five simultaneous keys around the WASD area, and it will be available in an Italian layout.

  • I’ve heard reports that the back-lighting isn’t 100% even on these is that true? other then that it seems like a great board.

    • Hi Deadly55,

      Overall, the backlighting brightness is consistent across the keyboard. The characters on the keys are illuminated by reflecting light up through the key chimney and then through a painted, transparent keycap with the characters etched off by laser. Light only comes up through the key chimney into the center of the keycap. For most of the characters on the keyboard, this does not affect illumination as the entire character is contained within the illuminated area. Some key legends, however, require more space than is available to be illuminated if they are to be legible. In these cases, the corners of some characters may be dimmer than the centers. This is most likely what other people are describing as inconsistent backlighting.

  • Does anyone know the dimension of the packaging/box of this keyboard?

    When will this be available in the Philippines?

    • Hi Patrick,

      The package measures approximately 53cm x 23cm x 6cm. I do not have any information on availability in the Philippines. Your best bet would be to check with local retailers.

  • Hi Chris,

    I could see that some Canadian retailers in have the G110 in stock. However it’s only available in US English. Do you plan to release a French Canadian version?

    Thank you,


    • Hi Frederic,

      At this point in time we have no plans to release a French-Canadian version of the G110. The way the keyboard is manufactured requires that we limit the number of different layouts we produce, and French-Canadian unfortunately does not make the cut.

  • Hey Chris thanks a lot taking time to answer our queries. :)
    I wanted to ask something regarding the anti ghosting option. Recent keyboards i’ve bought i’ve had problems with the anti-ghosting. Can you tell me if capslock is included in the cluster around wasd? I use caps lock for leaning and many of the keyboards i’ve bought recently, caps lock is not supported in their anti-ghosting feature.

    • Hi Saqib,

      The G110′s Caps Lock key was included in our WASD area anti-ghosting optimization, so it should work for most 5-key combinations you’d want to do.

  • I have been using this G 110 for a week now, during day and night, and have some comments. Given that many people besides young gamers will be attracted to this kind of keyboard, it is unfortunate that Logitech designers did not make the letters larger. The pale backlighting, combined with the unusually tiny letter dimensions, make the device difficult to use for those of us over 40 who have less than youthful eyesight.
    Certainly, the concept of illuminating the keys is welcome, and the manufacturing finish and feel of the keyboard are all top line, but I must say the tiny symbols are just so disappointing.
    And, please, when will they ditch the number pad on the right side of the board? So useless.
    I think that area would be a fine media control center, or even a finger pad with L and R mouse
    functionality, like on a laptop. And a scroll wheel on the left side, or both sides, would be an added delight.

  • Hey thanks chris for your reply. I just read on the site that the keyboard has multiple color leds. Is it possible to set specific colors for specific keys?

    • Hi Saqib,

      The backlighting color is the same for all of the keys on the G110. It is not possible to make some different than others.

    • Hi sHades,

      There are currently no plans for a PT layout for the G110. As with the French-Canadian layout mentioned above, we are limited in the number of different layouts we produce, and Portuguese is not on that list.

  • i still never have seen the g110 in a german electronic store ! :-P
    i hope i will get one of this awesome keyboard!

    kind regards from germany!

    • Hi frank,

      The G110 just arrived at our European distribution center within the last couple of weeks. It should be widely available in both retail and online shops in the very near future.

  • yes same here. Cant find it in pakistan nor india. Hope it gets shipped to the subcontinent pretty soon. Chris any idea on the time line before the keyboard gets here to asia?

  • Any idea if the release date for the Azerty version of this keyboard for belgium is near? :(
    also the price doesnt seem right, 80$ does not equal 79.99€ :D hope they will lower it once it hits the shelves


  • I doubt this, but would be very grateful if you’d have any idea when does it come to Slovenia. I know it’s all about marketing but I’m still a little disappointed concerning a fact that you are a swiss company and your products are typically released in the USA much earlier than in Europe. I know that my opinion won’t change anything, but I just had to let you know :). I still enjoy using your products a lot.

    • Hi Rok,

      The G110 is available for European distributors to order, so if a distributor in Slovenia has done so it should be available there in the near future.

  • Hi! I want to get a G19 keyboard…. but I need it for gaming and for work as well, so once I’m portuguese I really need one with a portuguese layout.
    Could tell me if there will be a PT layout version of the G19?


    • Hi Cláudio,

      Unfortunately, there are currently no plans to manufacture a Portuguese layout of the G19. It is possible that this could change in the future if there were sufficient demand from Portuguese retailers for such a product.

  • Thanks for answering my earlier post. I have another question about macro management. I cannot locate anywhere in the Key Profiler software that shows all my current “On-The-Fly” or “quick” macros. I would like to visually examine what is stored in all the keys, as well as edit it. I can see the regular macros but not the quick ones. Also I would like to be able to stop a macro (regular or quick) from running while in game. It gets to be a liability in game if the macro misses its target or PvP suddenly occurs and I just started a 10 second macro. Currently I have to fight thru the macro with new commands, hoping I can out click it, lol. I have noticed I can change the M key, which stops the macro, but is there an easier way?
