Seems like a VERY worthy replacement for my venerable MX3000 desktop (the mouse gave out this spring, and the keyboard has noticable grooves in the spacebar and common consonents) when I have a few hundred bucks to spare or board death mandates it.

I've been looking at a new keyboard myself, specifically for gaming since thats what my Windows rig is built for. I currently use a MS Natural 4000. There are only 2 things I wish a manufacturer would put in their gamer keyboard 1) Backlighting and 2) Curved Ergonomic shape. I  find these features individually but not together. This logitech keyboard has great specs but I'd compare it more to having a magazine fed hunting rifle than a M4 SOPMOD

How can someone be so blind to knock a keyboard because it doesn't have a crappy audio jack? No one with any respect for audio quality is going to use some cheap jack soldered into a keyboard.

Has logitech finally gotten smart and given the macro keys their own button ID? Yes, its all fine and dandy that I can use the buttons to create on the fly complex macros for things, but for some games I just want extra buttons on my keyboard to bind to actions. Lets take WoW for example. You can't just bind a hotbar button to a macro key on the G15, instead you have to first bind your G15 macro key to some combination of button presses, then bind your hot bar button to that combination of macro keys. But if you happen to press that combination of keys on the keyboard, you will trigger your hot button by accident. I don't know why logitech doesn't give the option of mapping the macro keys to aliases, say.... KB1-KB36 right out of the box. especially for the price they charge for these damned things. Has anyone else found an easier way around this problem? Maybe I am making it harder than it needs to be :D

I think a better question is: Will it run a starship?

Can I have an M4 SOPMOD instead?

Logitech makes another keyboard that's insanely priced at first, and has too many gadgets.

I don't like Microsoft, I associate with it.

What about the load the extra software puts on the system?

How many extra processes does it need to run?

How much memory will it eat up?

Those questions which are never answered in reviews is the reason I keep sticking to PS2 keyboards.

Lets just say if you are worried about the processes and memory usage of a keyboard, you don't have a computer good enough to need this keyboard.

I have a i7 at 3.67ghz and 6gb of ram. But I still like to keep windows as light as possible, which is why I only have games on it. I use my laptop for everything else.

Worrying about the additional load this keyboard and its software places on an i7 system is like worrying about a single piece of gravel in the bed of a dump truck. It's going to be pretty much invisible.
