Logitech G13 Gaming Keypad Review
I have this one.
Here's the good parts.
- 25 programmable keys. (22 full keys, plus 2 keys on thumb area, and joystick also can be pushed down as a button.)
- Onboard memory. 5 profiles. (this means, you can setup your keys/macros, then use this device on any computer)
- Backlighting color and intensity are adjustable.
- LCD displays game stats, system info, or message from other players.
g13 does NOT work in Linux at ALL. No keys works.
But there's this linux driver you can try.
Xah Verdict: No NOT Buy
after eying this for years, finally i got.
PROBLEM: extremely lousy key feel.
the keys are not mechanical, i know, but, it's worse than i imagined.
I just can't bear pressing it.
The joy stick's resistance is high. I don't like it neither.
Also, when in linux, it does NOTHING!
Just to be fair, it works fine in Microsoft Windows, and the Logitech
software is truly excellent.
I would recommend the following instead.
