Logitech G815 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard review: Low profile, high price

Last updated:  

If you're after a gaming keyboard with a super-low profile, the Logitech G815 could be the keyboard for you, although you do pay for the privilege.

The good

  • Satisfying key click
  • Fully customisable RGB lighting
  • Scroll wheel and additional function keys

The bad

  • Left-hand side keys are awkwardly placed
  • Relatively pricey
  • Rubber top keys don't feel particularly durable

Say the words "gaming keyboard", and most folks will mentally picture a device with high raised keys, RGB lighting and a relatively brutal aesthetic. Gaming keyboards are one part precision, and one part sheer intimidation of your foes, after all.

For the Logitech G815 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Logitech has taken a slightly different tack. Sure, it's got more RGB than you can point a light meter at, but the design wouldn't look all that out of place on your everyday workday desk, thanks to some super-low key and switch designs.


Design

  • Full keyboard design
  • Quick macro keys on the left-hand side
  • Squishy rubber lighting, media and game mode keys

Performance

  • Choice of low profile GL switches
  • RGB lighting choices are good, but it's basically mandatory to have it on

Features

  • Key response is excellent
  • G keys are a little too easy to hit accidentally

Verdict

  • A decent low profile gaming keyboard

The Logitech G815 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard has some impressive engineering behind it, and if you're after a keyboard that can travel with you as well as (mostly) doing double duty as your desktop input device for those more tedious everyday tasks, it's a good option, albeit at a somewhat premium price.


Pricing and availability

The Logitech G815 RGB Mechanical Gaming sells in Australia for $299.95.
