    I’ll be honet I kinda wish the afterpay sale just ends already. We get it, most things are 20% off. Just clutters OzBargain imo lol

    •  

      Yet, not everything is a bargain even after 20%. Some sellers jacked up their price in anticipation of this promotion. A lot of the deals we are having the past 4 days showed historically low price. Perfect if you can stack it with amex, westpac, commbank deals simultaneously.

      I agree. I'm not super keen on using afterpay to buy as well.

      •  

        People need to be aware it affects your credit. It counts as a line of credit. Might mean you can't get a loan when you need one.

        • +1 vote

          Yep. It's the equivalent of taking a short term loan when using afterpay. Most of these purchases can be bought cash or normally with the discounts.

          I'm reticent to use afterpay even with the discounts. I much prefer to pay it and forget it than pay in instalments. That's me though.

            @Raj09: Personally I'm opposed to any program that profits greatly from allowing people to buy things they can't afford.

            I don't want to directly or indirectly support that predation.

          •  

            @Raj09: You don’t have to use Afterpay for the discount, you just click the coupon and apply it while Afterpay is your check out option - then change to card or PayPal after and it’ll still work with the 20% off.

            Can confirm as I bought a bunch of computer stuff over the weekend :)

        •  

          Are you sure? I’ve been using afterpay for 5 years now and check my credit every 3 months. It never mentions afterpay in any of the big 3.

          Maybe it only shows up if you fail a payment?

          •  

            @choosk: Afterpay don't normally do hard credit enquiries (they still do reserve the right to do them), but all brokers check your bank statements for stuff like this and gambling.

            When they see regular Afterpay usage it's a red flag that you don't have the ability to save up for even small purchases ~1k. The brokers in my office will ask about it every time but I've never seen it break an application by itself.

            If you don't want Afterpay to affect your getting credit you just need to stop using it for 90 days as I believe brokers won't be able to see further than that.

        •  

          You need credit to get a loan. The more 'good' credit you have the better. That's exactly why it's important to set up phone contracts and get a credit card as soon as you can, so you have no enough of rating built up so that by the time you apply for a mortgage you're good to get approved.

          The issue is when you start missing payments.

      •  

        The reason why these deals are so popular is because you don't need to use afterpay to take advantage of this coupon. Just apply the coupon to get the discount, and then pay 100% of the amount with ebay gift cards.

          Oh really? Sorry didn't know. Duh I'm stupid. Missed a basic ozbargain trick. 😅😅

    How did you get the "$20 off $20 shopback deal"?

    • +2 votes

      It's targeted.

      •  

        Can you stack it? Shopback has a clause -

        • As of 28th October 2019, Any purchases made with the use of Coupon / Voucher Codes are not eligible for Cashback (unless otherwise stated)
        • Any Purchases with the use of Voucher / Coupon / Promo code will result in cashback tracking at $0.00

        PAPDY20 is a coupon/promo code isnt it?

        •  

          I don't believe it stacks.

    This keyboard sounds great. I'm in.

  •  

    I always wondered, what does "tactile" mean?

    •  

      Clicky feel but not that noisy. Similar to a Cherry Brown switch

    •  

      My local jb hifi has a demo section to show the difference between tactile, linear or clicky feel of the buttons. Make a huge difference if you work with it most of the day

  •  

    But it's wired.

    • +7 votes

      I have the wireless one and always keep it plugged in. Wish I got the wired one to begin with. Consider how often you will move the keyboard away from your computer before you purchase.

      • +1 vote

        Exactly! Same as a wireless mouse… I actually own one but went back to the wired one. One thing I do prefer is a wireless headset, I even bought another last night using the afterpay code** so I can stop using my Sony MX3 as it sucks for gaming.

        I kept forgetting to remove my old headset and it eventually broke it beyond repair so wireless it is for me now.

        ** (wireless Logitech G X PRO for ~150, yes please!)

      •  

        I have a wireless Logitech (G613) which is awesome but I don't get how I would quickly swap between my work (WFH) computer and personal computer on a wired version, do you have to use an external switch box thing? Or can you use another method?

  •  

    Is this basically the G915 but wired?

    Only ever seen small discounts off the high RRP

    • +1 vote

      yes. IMO it's worth the extra $70 or so to get the wireless version.

      •  

        Even if you don't plan on using it on more than one computer?

  •  

    It wont stack

        It tracks but when it's time for payout it will be denied

        •  

          I see. Thanks for the info

    Don't fall into the trap of buying this keyboard!! I own it, the keyboard itself is great, but the RGB software "Logitech G" is a pile of shit and has discouraged me from buying RGB Logitech hardware ever again.

    •  

      For the most part it seems to work for me. But sometimes the app seems to permanently hang on launch and loop around. On one of my laptop the lghub_agent consumes a decent amount of CPU and keeps the laptop running warm.

      Requires a full reinstall to fix every time

    •  

      I don't know if I'd say it would stop me from buying Logitech stuff again as I feel G Hub isn't as bad as say… iCUE or MSI Dragon Center… but it definitely isn't my favourite.

      I personally miss the old Logitech Gaming Suite software :(

      •  

        G hub is a steaming pile. Would never use it again, I just set my devices to do a slow rgb loop and uninstalled it.

        • +1 vote

          I literally can't even load the default rgb loop unless i turn G hub off…It is actually a pile of shit. Sucks that I own a Logitech headset and mouse as well :(

          •  

            @AmitM: Yeah logitech makes decent enough products (not as good as they used to tho) but damn their software sucks.

            Also their warranty returns process was horrendous when I tried them 2 years ago for a mouse with a double click.

            • +1 vote

              @Michael15286: Yeah agreed and the worst part is, is that they acknowledge the software issues but do (profanity) all to fix it. And yeah, I've also heard and seen many people complain about their returns process.

              •  

                @AmitM: It really sucks because I really want to like them. I use a logitech gaming keyboard, THREE gaming mice, and a logitech headsets and even their $200 wireless charging mousepad.

    Bought G915 blue switch, had trouble double clicking some keys unintentionally, ended up selling it.

  •  

    Seems like a good keyboard, but hard to know which of the three switch types would be best.

    Especially when I haven't used a mechanical keyboard before.

    •  

      Im same lol

    •  

      go modular. easy to just change switches

    •  

      brown or red

    •  

      Unfortunately, switches are all preference, it's a "try them and then you'll know" sort of thing.

      If these three are anything like your typical cherry red (linear), brown (tactile), blue (clicky), then for general use brown is the safest choice.

      Red is the smoothest because it's linear, but also feels the lightest. This may be uncomfortable to type on as you can't feel if a key has registered until you've pressed it fully. Some people say they're too light for normal typing, but they're very smooth and quite satisfying when you get used to it.

      Brown has (small) tactile feedback. The extra resistance from the tactile bump gives you feedback when hitting keys. The tradeoff is that the tactile bump makes the keypress less smooth. Especially since the bump is small, keys may feel scratchy or inconsistent - sometimes you feel the bump a lot, sometimes a little bit depending on how fast you hit each individual key.

      Blue is similar to brown except only get this if you live alone or have strong mental fortitude to not get annoyed by all the clicks.

      Just keep in mind that this keyboard has "low profile" switches so the keypress length will be smaller than your usual cherry switch. Also they are not cherry switches but I've assumed they're similar, hope this has helped you make a decision.

      I'd say ask your friends who live nearby if you can try their keyboards out, it's hard to describe feel over text. To people who are unsure what to get as a first keyboard, I recommend getting a hotswap keyboard such as the GMMK for which you can change the switches. This will help you find your preference.

      If you're really set on getting a prebuilt, I recommend cherry brown as good starting point - as it is a light tactile switch, you'll find out if you want more tactility, or you just want the smoothness and consistency of a linear instead.

      •  

        cherry vs logitech keys …….the logitech have the led in the middle of the switch mechanism so it illuminates the keys from the middle without bleeding from under the key caps, the cherry have an led next to the key mechanism so you can get light bleed between keys ……..

      •  

        Blue is similar to brown except only get this if you live alone or have strong mental fortitude to not get annoyed by all the clicks.

        But the satisfaction of the clickety clickety click is so great. I had MX Blues before but my wife hated them even when she was in the next room.

  •  

    I have the linear version of this keyboard and while it took me a bit of getting used to, coming from a laptop,I would never go back.

    Highly recommend.

  •  

    Grabbed one of these with the tactile switches, thanks OP.
    First keyboard upgrade in over a decade.
