Logitech G has just released a tenkeyless version of the incredible G915 wireless gaming keyboard. The Logitech G915 TKL Tenkeyless LIGHTSPEED Wireless RGB Gaming Keyboard(which is probably one of the most convoluted product names ever) brings all the core goodness from its bigger brother but cuts it down by 3-inches for a compact and portable keyboard.
If you’re anything like me, I barely ever use the number pad for anything other than my Windows 10 PIN. The beauty of Tenkeyless keyboards is the space-saving and pick-up-and-go nature. They can comfortably fit in an everyday backpack which makes the G915 TKL great for laptop users.
Logitech uses a special 5052 aluminium alloy top case joined to a steel-reinforced base, for a light, ultra-thin design that’s strong and durable. In fact, the G915 TKL weighs only 810g. The keys have an oleophobic coating to resist unsightly fingerprints and I’m a big fan of the aluminium volume wheel and brushed metal finish.
While the G915 TKL gets rid of extraneous keys, it maintains everything else that made the bigger G915 exceptional. This includes the patented LIGHTSPEED wireless technology which is lag free thanks to a 1ms report rate. The G915 TKL can connect over 2.4Ghz wireless dongle, Bluetooth and USB.
The G915 TKL also maintains the same low profile GL mechanical switches which are half the height of standard mechanical keys. This makes the G915 thinner than most keyboards and lighter. The switches are 25% faster and come in a choice of GL Linear, GL Tactile or GL Clicky variants. Keys have a 1.5mm actuation and 2.7mm travel which is impressive considering how thin it is.
Also impressive is the per-key LIGHTSYNC RGB lighting which you can manage through the Logitech G Hub software. The keyboard has onboard memory so you can save up to two lighting profiles and three macro profiles.
In spite of the brilliant RGB, Logitech says the G915 TKL will last up to 40 hours with the lighting running at 100%. And with lighting off, it will last a whopping 135 days!
The other thing that hasn’t changed, even with less keys is the astronomical price. The Logitech G915 TKL retails for about $380 in Australia and it definitely one of the most expensive keyboards available to date. However, we can’t wait to get our hands on one for review to tell you all about it.
The Logitech G915 TKL Tenkeyless LIGHTSPEED Wireless RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is available now at Logitech.com and local retailers starting this June, 2020.
