Logitech G110 Gaming Keyboard

Logitech G110 - 01

Yeah, I spent some of my allowance on this baby…

I got this keyboard for myself last week – Logitech G110 Gaming Keyboard.

Reason for getting this keyboard?? Well, I had an urge to get myself a better keyboard for better typing experience and macro capabilities for gaming, coding and etc…

And so I throw down MYR200++ for this…

Anyway, lets have a quick review of this keyboard.


Logitech G110 - 02

The packaging is the same as other Logitech products. The colour scheme and everything.

Back of the box, with explanations of the product’s features. Such as custom colour back-lighting, integrated USB audio, programmable G keys, USB 2.0 hub, and gaming/desktop mode.

Removing the outer box.

Logitech G110 - 05

Open box. I had several Logitech products and I can say that almost all of their keyboards used the same standard of packaging method.

What’s inside the box,

Keyboard palm-rest
User manual
Driver disc
Important information (safety, warranty, etc)

The keyboard is rather big because of the G keys at the left. But somehow, Logitech tried to reduce the keyboard size by slightly minimize the all the key’s size.

Because of the minimized key, I had a hard time adapting to the new keyboard when I first used it. Somehow, I manage to to familiarize with it after a few hours typing.

Bottom of the keyboard, it has a special designed cable management rail for your headphones or whatever thing.. so the cables can go under the keyboard.

But something very stupid is – if I elevate my keyboard, the cable would drop off the rail… this is basically useless..

4 degree elevation I suppose.

Logitech G110 - 10

12 programmable G keys, up to 3 unique functions per key. That’s 36 functions in total.

You can set the macro of the G key on the fly by using the ‘MR’ key.

On the far left is a switch to turn between Gaming mode (turns off window key) or Desktop mode.

If you’re using the keyboard’s USB audio, there’s 2 keys for you to mute the headphone and the microphone. The right side button is a switch to turn on the backlight on or off.

The media controller buttons. The scrolling component beside the mute button is volume controller.

Logitech G110 - 13

1 USB 2.0 hub and Audio jacks.

Just a typical plastic palm-rest, unlike other Logitech’s higher end keyboard with comfortable cushion-like rubber palm-rest..

Palm-rest attached… Look at the size.

Plugged into the computer. The backlighting is COOL.

But Logitech decided to exclude GREEN colour from the colour scheme… so yellow, green, cyan and WHITE is out from your colour selection.

Logitech G110 - 18

Left only RED and BLUE. However, the red colour is more saturated than blue colour, well I mean brighter.

I had very few experience of using a keyboard with backlighting feature… but I think that G110’s backlight is dimmer than other G series keyboards.

The worst is the purple colour, which you have to turn off your lights just to notice that your keyboard’s backlight is lit.

Logitech G110 - 20

After using the keyboard for around a week, here a short conclusion I have.

Plus:

  1. Fine typing feel
  2. G keys for macro
  3. Back-lighted
  4. media control key
  5. USB 2.0 hub
  6. onboard USB audio
  7. set macro on-the-fly

Minus:

  1. too expensive (with a little extra bucks, you can get a G15)
  2. Dim back-light
  3. Uncomfortable palm-rest
  4. useless cable management design

The main draw back of this keyboard is the comfort level. The quality of the included plastic palm rest is so bad that I discard it after using it for one week. I found the attachment point of the palm rest and the keyboard is quite loose.. and this makes screechy noise while you typing while putting your palm on the palm rest.

Otherwise, I’m very satisfied with this keyboard’s performance. Especially with the typing feel and the macro function.

A question for you guys. Would you spend MYR200+ (USD 66) for a keyboard?
