Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard Unboxing
Professional gamers are like runners in that they look for every advantage that they can possibly get over their competition. Runners try to get faster by wearing lighter shoes, tracking their times, and running at various intensity levels in order to improve their overall performance. Gamers, like runners, are constantly trying to improve their performance and speed. One way to do this is through faster CPU, Gaming Graphics Cards, and other hardware that most gamers take advantage of. One advantage that not all gamers know about is a gaming keyboard. A gaming keyboard not only includes programmable macros to make your actions faster, it also can include a screen that gives you various data you need to chart and track your games.
We've included gaming keyboards from various manufacturer's but the ones that keep catching our eyes are from Logitech. After using our Logitech G15 for many years, we are more than excited to upgrade to our best gaming keyboard of 2012 the Logitech g19 Programmable Gaming Keyboard.

What Gamer's on Amazon are Saying about the G19 Gaming Keyboard:
"I struggled with the cost of this keyboard but found Amazon to have the best price plus the free shipping. I am not a heavy duty gamer but was looking for a solid keyboard with good back lighting of the keys. I had tried the Razor from Microsoft and was extremely disappointed with the lighting which comes more from around the keys than through them... On this keyboard the lighting comes only through the keys and you can change the colors. This combined with a solid feel...makes me very satisfied."
"I upgraded from a 2nd generaton G15. Besides doubling up on G-Keys, the standard functions of the keyboard are great. On to the features:
The Screen has great quality, easily readable font, and good colors...
Keys (and more):
G Keys are easy to set up, and you double up from a G15. The MR feature to store quick macros is great for simpler macros, but to do the complex ones you need to use the software. Keystrokes are quiet and smooth. The Windows turn off switch is great for when playing games. The onboard Play/Pause/Stop/Skip keys are nice for when you don't have your media player up, as well as the mute/volume button/roller. You can change the backlight of your keys to any color in the spectrum, however, the profile choose and LCD screen keys remain orange. There is also a switch to turn off the keys and LCD screen if you wish...All in all, if you are a hardcore gamer or just like your toys, this keyboard is wonderful. The macro keys make things much more simplistic, and the LCD screen has a ton of different functions. "
All in all we feel like the G19 is the best gaming keyboard of 2012. If it's a bit above your price range consider the G11 or G15.
