Hi, I am trying to decide between the G110 or the G15 gaming keyboards. The G110 has 36 programmable macro keys G15 has 18. The G15 has a nifty little screen, the G110 doesn't. Blue vs. orange backlight? Please tell me what you guys think. Thanks in advance.

Both are great but if you do really want to check something like time, email notifications, etc, the G15 is you only option.

I've been using the original G15 (blue backlight and more physical macro buttons [3x18]) for about 4 years now and absolutely love it. However the screen, although I tried many third-party apps, has only been a fancy clock for me. Even though there are several games that make use of the screen, I've always found it bothering to look down during the game.

I've never used a G110, but you really can't go wrong with the G15. I may be mistaking, but I think it's the most popular gaming keyboard on the market. I know there are lots of G15 users on this forum who can also give you positive feedback for this keyboard.

I've been using the G15 v2 (2007 ed.) for nearly a year and I can say that the screen does come in handy especially when you can quickly look down to check the time in-game without having to Alt-Tab.

Yep 3rd g15'er here. I only got mine recently but it is a dream. The orange backlight goes well with my theme and is great for night gaming.

I ended up getting the new G510 after stumbling upon it on Logitech's website. And I love it. Thanks for all the help guys.

It would be nice if my keyboard had a clock. Right now I'm using a Logitech Elite LE, which is a basic media keyboard with no bells and whistles, but it works. I have to have a clock sitting on my desk to tell the time while playing a game, though.
