    I bought this last year and used it for 3 months until it suddenly not was not responding.
    Regretfully, I had to return it to Amazon and the return process was fantastic.
    I tempted to buy it again but given it broke on me I shall refrain

      I had a friend using his for over a year (mid 2019) for gaming and for work, so it's used every day for a full work day, and gaming when he games. He said it's still perfect, and regrettably I bought it for $289 just 6 days ago, could have saved myself almost $30 :'(

      We both got the Tactile version (similar to cherry brown I think), I was using the G910 and Ducky One (cherry brown switch) before I got the G915 (two computers but now I switch between the two on the 915 from lightspeed wireless connecting to my personal computer, and to Bluetooth on work computer

    Had it for 4 months before the black on the keys started rubbing off showing the clear plastic below. Was able to get a refund and the process was great.

    If you have oily hands or use your keyboard a lot during the day, it might be worth checking out something else.

    •  

      Hey man, the exact same thing is happening to me. The black on the keys is slowly wearing off… such a shame because I love the keyboard otherwise.
      I got it from amazon in February but the order says my return window ended in March. How did you get a refund so long into your purchase?

      • +1 vote

        Directly thru Logitech.

      •  

        The return window is for change of mind etc. You still have warranty and if you contact Amazon about it they'll likely be very helpful.

        •  

          Yeah, I have had to return items via amazon before and their customer service is godlike…

      All cheap keycaps are like this, so I tend to avoid Logitech for other reasons as well.

    •  

      This kills it for me. Proprietary, fragile, wobbly, ABS keycaps on a $250+ keyboard aren't something I would settle for when the other features aren't a dealmaker to me.

    Please dont buy this junk. Go for Leopold or ducky ones.
    I have had ghosting and double key taps for more than 5 keys within 13 months.

      What's the equivalent Leopold and Ducky models?

    •  

      Yeah mine developed chatter just after the warranty ended. Seems to be a common issue.

      Love my Leopold FC750R. TKL. No RGB, no lights, no wireless, no media keys, no media knob, no cup holder. No features.

      The Windows Key lock feature doesn't even work.

      But lovely lovely typing experience.

    •  

      Exact same thing happened to mine…Double key taps when pressed once.

      I would advise anyone to keep away!!

      •  

        Haha my Logitech gaming keyboard also suffered from double key taps. I think it's their Romer switches.

    I have the tactile version both in full size and TKL format.

    My keyboard experience before this was cherry brown and red switches.

    Pros:
    - Low profile key caps. Initially it was weird switching from full sized keycaps to low profile. Took me about a week to adjust, but now I can't go back. I definitely type faster and more accurately, possibly due to less travel distance required for actuations.
    - Battery life is awesome. When you download and use the "Logitech G Hub" software, it illustrates battery life estimates in real time. For example, it will display remaining hours in real time when you change the brightness.
    - No distinguishable lag/latency.
    - Bluetooth, wireless via dongle, and wired options.
    - Dedicated media keys
    - Very customisable RGB

    Cons:
    - Micro-USB Type B
    - Keycaps are ABS/plastic, not PBT. Youtube reviews warn that removing the keycaps may break them due to their fragile shape.
    - The keycap holders are only two pronged/hooked, which makes the keys wobbly. After a while you won't notice them when you're typing though.
    - Price.

    Overall I'm very happy with the keyboard and would recommend.

    My opinion on the price is this: If you use a product for many hours everyday (eg. bed, monitor, mouse, kb, chair, ultraboosts), I'd spend the money to invest in it. Things like that help with ergonomics and overall health/well being.

      You’re right about the price.

      If you use a keyboard 6-7hrs a day, 30ish hours a week…you should invest in a quality keyboard.

    I have the G613, and the first one stopped working after a software update.

    And the second one has been good since 2019, but now double types keys constantly.

    So sure about the quality of Logitech’s mechanical switches.

    • +2 votes

      I got the keychatter issue as well, apparently I should take off the keycaps and do a clean…. have put it off instead with a keychatter program

      Anyway G613 both dongle and bluetooth latency are crazy good (per rtings) for the price I paid (bought 2 during some newegg promo ages ago for $68.64 each) so I'll prob take the time to clean it.

        Yeah I tried using isopropyl alcohol to clean the keys. Helped some of them but not others.

        It’s odd because I had about 10 keys start doing it at the same time. And after cleaning about 4 still do.

    Seems to be a lot of horror stories in the comments here about Logitech keyboards. Just want to share that I have had a G512 for 8 months and am a serious power user. Brilliant keyboard that I've never had an issue with. Would 100% buy Logitech keyboard again after owning numerous mechanical keyboards.

    Good alternative is Corsair K95 I've got one and it's brilliant

      The Logitech is wireless. Not really a like-for-like alternative

    •  

      How is that the alternative if Logitech is low profile?

    Bit upset reading the comments here as a new owner… with no invoice.

      upset why?

    I've got the TKL Tactile version.

    I was used to low profile scissor switch keyboards for fast typing and mechanical keyboards for gaming, so when my gaming room became my home office, it was either keep two keyboards around and swap, or find a holy grail keyboard that does both.

    This is that holy grail. Low profile, absolutely no wireless latency, strong programmable backlighting, media keys, and it can connect to two devices seamlessly (gaming desktop on wireless, work laptop on bluetooth).

    Has been the best keyboard I've ever owned, without parallel. It could do more, I feel like the secondary functions not being backlit is a huge flaw, but after learning to touch type on it that has barely even been a concern.

    The price is ridiculous, you can knock $100 off by getting the G815 if you don't need to connect to multiple devices. But for a lot of people, this is two top-tier keyboards in one, and Logitech knows it can charge a fortune when there's nothing else like it on the market that isn't plagued with issues.

      Have had the TKL for almost a year, wouldn't look back. Swap between work notebook and gaming rig simply and easily.
      Haven't had any of the issues mentioned in earlier posts.

    For mechanical keyboards, there are much better quality keyboards out there (if you can accept wired) for less. And if you dont mind spending this kind of money, you can get better build quality with swappable switches and PBS keycaps, that dont give you a shine after extended use.

    •  

      The price is for the cutting edge wireless tech, would be mad to buy this for a purely wired setup. Even if they're set on Logitech and low-profile mech keyboards, the G815 is generally $100 cheaper for the same thing.

    I'll say it again, Logitech G610 for $139 (MX Blue) or $149 (MX Red) @Mwave, free shipping ends tonight.

    For this price you can get a DasKeyboard with Cherry MX switches and a premium build.

    •  

      They are non-wireless though.

      I'd imagine most people interested in this are looking for a wireless one. I'm looking for something that I can carry to work and to replace MX Keys.

      •  

        Yes.

        Keep your MX Keys honestly.

      Still same prices at Centrecom with free delivery (gone up a bit since I got my G610 Brown few years back for $89)
      I like it, but yeah wired vs wireless.

  •  

    No palm rest?

    •  

      Yeah no palm rest at all.

      It's never bothered me since it's low profile.

      Definitely should have had one for the price, but still fine without.

    Another great wireless keyboard here which might interest people. Razer BlackWidow V3 Pro.

    How does Keychron k1v4 or Keychron k4v2 compare to this?

    • +1 vote

      I have both, keychron k1v4 is great bang for buck, and very close to the G915 for travel. (love low profile keyboards)
      I couldn't justify getting another G915 for work so i bought the keychron instead.

      Keychron keys are a little more satisfying to type on, a little more tactile bump, a little more force, and the keys don't wobble so much so feels really nice. Some of the bigger keys can get a touch scratchy but it's ok. Wireless is only BT which isn't great for gaming so i use it wired.

      The G915 has been rock solid, my only con is the key wobbles slightly, so not as solid a click. However due to it's lower pressure and smaller tactile bump, it's great for gaming and i have typed my fastest on the G915 by a fair margin. Every key has as consistent feel. I bought the full size which i regret, as it's a touch too long for gaming but they only brought out the tkl later.

      anyway ideal setup is keychron full size for work, and g915 tkl for gaming/home. (i have the opposite)

      •  

        I've used both as well, and honestly hated it.

        Constant drop outs on Bluetooth, it felt like every few hours it'd drop then take a few seconds to reconnect. Tried finding a fix, and only found more people complaining about the same issue, with no answers other than to use it wired, which kinda defeats the entire point.

        Pretty awful typing experience too, the brown Gateron switches felt like their bump was right at the bottom, so I had the two things I hated most about both Red switches and Blue switches in one, high bottom resistance and mushy keys that sink when my fingers rest on them. Might have been a better experience with just Reds, but I couldn't do that to my coworkers.

        Ended up returning it and eventually buying the G915, which has been flawless for typing experience and connectivity.

  •  

    I got the g10 for $100 a few years ago, unsure what the difference is.

  •  

    I still use my G15 (with the G1-G18 keys) and G510 keyboards. I think I got the G15 almost 20 years ago and the G510 about 10 years back. Both are still running great.

    When money isn't a problem, should I get logitech g915 or mx keys?

    • +1 vote

      I know this is a late response, but if suggest you go into store and test them yourself because it's a subjective experience.

      They're both great keyboards so you won't regret any decision

      •  

        Aight okay, but the mx keys is smaller than this right?

        •  

          Yes, MX keys is about 2/3 or 1/2 of the height of the G915.

          But you really need to try them both in person, they're completely different technologies. If you're going to spend this much, you should be sure of what you want.

          MX keys is scissor switches, similar experience to most laptop keyboards. G915 is mechanical keys, and comes in 3 varieties; clicky (lots of force to press, very loud), tactile (a bit of force to press, the most similar to scissor switches with feel) and linear (no force to press, almost silent, similar experience to membrane keyboards).

    •  

      The answer is actually fairly easy if these are the only two options you are considering:

      If gaming is your priority = G915
      If gaming isn't your priority = MX Keys
      If you want to do both = G915 - MX Keys is useless for gaming

      But be advised, the black colour on the G915 key caps will wear off eventually. Mine started after only 3 months.
