Logitech G13 Advanced Gaming Keyboard
by Mark R
Take Darth Vader’s head, mix it with the buttons on his chest, and then merge them into one gadget. The result would be the Logitech G13 Advanced Gaming Keyboard.
Actually, Logitech reveals in a recent Press Release that the G13 is really a combination of the Logitech G15 keyboard and G9 Laser Mouse. In this same release, the company promises that the G13 is a more superior model than other gaming keyboards.
“Unlike other gameboards that focus only on programmability, the G13 advanced gameboard incorporates the principles of our award winning Comfort Wave design…the G13 gameboard gives you a powerful advantage over those forced to work with less.”
Logitech also states that the G13 has three game modes, 25 programmable keys, and a programmable analog stick. This allows for over 87 ways to control your game, and even allows for custom button profiles as well as creating macros without having to pause the game. Another prominent feature is the 160 x 43 pixel GamePanel LCD to show live game stats, system info, or messages from other players.
The G13 also has pre-configured settings for many popular games including World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade, Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
The Logitech G13 should be available sometime this month in Europe and the United States for about $79.99.
So readers, do you agree with me about my Darth Vader opening comment, or what? Also let me know if there are other gaming keyboards out there that are truly improving your game.
