    Hi everyone.
    Since I just bought a new mouse, a logitech g9, I was thinking
    about getting a new keyboard too.
    I got a Zboard at the moment and its pretty nice for gaming.
    Other then that, I can't see the keys in the dark, which makes me
    put on a lamp at night XD.
    Anyways, would a g15 be worth it to replace my zboard?
    Please post your experience about the g15 if you have one.
    Thankyou in advance.

    Hi Justing!:)

    Well,to describe the G15 with only one word:awesome.It is the bettest keyboard ever,no other keyboard is better,the G15 has a great design,a lot of features,like the LCD display,there are informations about your system or games visible.All keys are very good visible,doesn't matter how dark it is.However,as you probably know,there are 2 versions of the G15 available,the G15 with blue light and the G15 Refresh with red light,it is up to you which you wanna take.Both are only a little bit different in design and size,but awesome like hell,I own the G15 with blue light and I love it.:)

    The G15 is huge, make sure you have enough space left on your desk for your mouse. I finally quit using mine and am loving having the extra room on my desk. If I had a setup just for gaming then I'd probably use it over my zboard but its just to clunky for every day use.

    Old G15 is not manufactured anymore - it was repaced by new G15 which uses the same body as some of the Logitech's 150$+ wireless mouse + kb combos.

    Keep in mind the G15 isn't designed for typing alot of text, the keys aren't really smooth to press. Other than that it's a great keyboard, if not a bit big
