I enjoyed this article on the gaming keyboards and I am what you would call a “hard-core” gamer. I agree that I own a gaming keyboard because I think they look cool, but it is also useful for playing games.
I especially enjoy the extra buttons on the side and the multimedia options that I get with my keyboard. I am also one of those people that enjoy seeing the system specifications and the little LED screen above the keys, provide me with those details.
The keyboard that I own and use is the Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard. It is a great keyboard, with many features.
The Logitech G15 has a blue backlit monochrome LCD (Which can show helpful information from compatible applications). I find this not only cool but also very useful.
