    Logitech G, a brand of Logitech and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, today introduced two new high-performance gaming keyboards – the LogitechⓇ G915 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard and the LogitechⓇ G815 LIGHTSYNC RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. By combining Logitech G’s advanced LIGHTSPEED wireless technology, with its new high-performance, low-profile GL Switches, these new keyboards were designed and built to be the most advanced and innovative keyboards imaginable.

    “These new keyboards are perfect examples of what’s possible when our award-winning designers and engineers at Logitech G push the envelope of advanced gaming technology and design,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “The G915 combines LIGHTSPEED Wireless, RGB lighting and amazing battery life in a sleek, ultra-thin, aluminum case that creates a new standard for gaming keyboards.”

    This premium keyboard features Logitech G’s award-winning LIGHTSPEED Wireless technology for a lightning fast, pro-grade 1ms report rate and up to 135 days of non-stop wireless gaming, with lighting turned off (assuming eight hours of play per day). The G915 LIGHTSPEED also includes five on-board programmable G-keys, putting custom macro sequences and in-app commands at your fingertips.

    For the first time in the gaming industry, Logitech G is offering its next-generation LIGHTSYNC RGB lighting on a LIGHTSPEED Wireless keyboard. With LIGHTSYNC, this keyboard can be personalized across approximately 16.8 million colors through Logitech G HUB Advanced Gaming Software for the most immersive RGB gaming experience. With RGB colorwave enabled, gamers can play for over 12 days on a single charge (assuming eight hours of play per day).

    The ultra-thin, wired G815 LIGHTSYNC offers the same great style and finish of the G915 LIGHTSPEED, with five dedicated, programmable G-keys, up to three on-board profiles and Logitech G’s LIGHTSYNC RGB technology, customizable through Logitech G HUB. Additionally included is a USB cable that connects the USB 2.0 passthrough port to its own input for 100 percent power throughout.

    Both the G915 LIGHTSPEED and G815 LIGHTSYNC mechanical gaming keyboards feature Logitech G’s high-performance, low-profile GL mechanical key switches that are half the height of standard mechanical key switches for 25 percent faster actuation (versus 2.0mm actuation in standard switches) and a more comfortable typing experience. Available in choice of GL Linear, GL Tactile or GL Clicky switches to match play preferences, the tactile version gives discernible actuation for gamers who prefer direct feedback, while the linear version provides a smooth keystroke. The clicky version offers a much-requested audible typing experience with tactile feedback.

    All of these technologies and innovations have been carefully engineered into two of the industry’s thinnest mechanical keyboards and Logitech G’s most advanced mechanical gaming keyboards to date.

    I can't stand keyboards with extra keys on the left side, unless they are the Function keys.
    Having said that, for about a year now I have a Logitech G413 Silver and it has renewed my faith to Logitech. Fantastic keyboard. So I am sure these keyboards are fine.

    another lineup of completely shitty standard keyboards.... yet again i'm forced to remain on the microsoft ergonomic natural keyboards since they are the only company that seems to build them.

    @ Judas

    I'm still rocking my 4000... My bro hates it. Plus I have worn the paint off a few keys (A,S,D,E,C,M are all hard to see :p ) but I like it :)

    it can't be beat..... i'd love to upgrade to something a little more modern... but i just keep pounding out the keys.

    the first generation of the 4000 were quite expensive and the keys were "painted" on so much as embossed into place.. .those keyboard are bullet proof... the newer models that are a fraction of the cost all work and sound the same, but the keys are as you said "painted" on... and it doesn't take much sweat and greasy hands to smear the letters off.

    But seriously if logitech or someone made a nice keyboard with ergonomics in mind, it would be fantastic. People SHOULD be using these keyboards, i've sold plenty of them to help "fix" some people's serious debilitating issues with wrists and such due to using standard keyboards. Even some gamers are just blindly using the fancy rgb standard bullshit... and aren't aware of ergnomic models..
