The Logitech G815 LIGHTSYNC RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard features low-profile mechanical keys and an ultra-slim design. While it may be thin, its Logitech GL Tactile switches still offer a familiar typing experience. As a gaming-focused keyboard, it’s built with key necessities such as customizable RGB lighting, programmable keys, and quick access to profile and media controls. Users can also take advantage of its USB passthrough port to connect their mouse or charge their phone without having to reach around their system. To fully unlock its potential, users should download Logitech’s G-Hub software for changing settings, making macros, and more.
Logitech Low-Profile GL Tactile Switches
Mechanical keyboards utilize a different type of key switch technology for a more durable and unique typing experience. The Logitech GL Tactile switch has an actuation force of 50 g and offers a small tactile bump when pressed, letting you know that the key has registered. This can be useful for typing or preparing for a movement while gaming. Unlike GL Clicky switches, these do not have an audible “click” mechanism, allowing for a quieter operation. Noise generated from this keyboard will be from the key either springing back into place or “bottoming out” – making contact with the back plate after a particularly hard press.
Strong and Durable
The G815 is built with aluminum and steel for a solid feel and extended durability. Moreover, its bushed metal surface and oleophobic-coated keycaps help to reduce fingerprints.
LIGHTSYNC RGB Lighting
LIGHTSYNC RGB Lighting offers users plenty of color and lighting effect options to choose from to best suit their style. Users can also sync compatible products for a unified theme.
The Logitech G Hub software unlocks the full potential of this keyboard’s five G-keys, three onboard profiles keys, and the game mode key. It’s also used to customize settings and create macro commands.
Take an extra USB port, but get one back. A convenient USB passthrough port lets you plug in or charge devices straight from your keyboard without having to reach around your desktop.
Dedicated Media Controls
Built-in media controls lets you quickly and easy adjust the volume, play/pause and skip tracks, as well as mute audio.
