Now for the next little piece of equipment I got my paws on.

The Logitech G110 is an amazing piece of equipment, not only is it designed in a way that makes getting to all the normal keys a breeze it also has put some serious effort into making the keys ‘press’ really smoothly and ensures that your throw grenade button wont stick down causing unforeseen and normally infuriating consequences.

Now for some specifications:

 

Custom-colour backlighting* You can easily locate the correct keys, even in the dark. Plus, you can mix red and blue backlighting LEDs in varying intensities to create custom colors. Integrated USB audio Separate headphone and mic jacks and mute buttons mean you can use any analogue headset with 3.5 mm plugs as a USB audio device for clear communication. Twelve programmable G-keys Three macros per key let you configure up to 36 unique functions per game, including single keypresses or complex macros. You can even create macros on the fly. Hi-Speed USB 2.0 hub port You can connect a flash drive for lightning-fast data transfer or quickly plug in your gaming mouse. Game/desktop mode No accidental interruptions—you can disable the Windows/Context Menu keys when you play. Removable palm rest You’ve got extra support when you need it. If the palm rest is in your way, you can easily detach it. Intelligent cable management You can keep mouse, headset, and other cords out of the way by routing them through channels on the underside of the keyboard. Instant media access Convenient one-touch controls give you instant access to volume control and media playback.

 One more thing to mention is that this keyboard has a removable palm rest, something which I myself found to be wonderful since I hate palm rests and would have been upset if I was unable to remove it without a blowtorch and a decent size hammer.

This keyboard has a massive con though, and it goes as such.

When playing games and using the programable buttons for integral gameplay, you will stumble into the same problem that I did, the problem being that the ‘G’ keys are IMPOSSIABLE to press without pausing your game, looking down and finding the key you were looking for. Which breaks immerision and gameplay. 

I would recommend not using the keys for anything other than pausing your music or movies in the background, or launching programs.

Other than the above mentioned con this keyboard is an amazing piece of equipment and should be a must for all gamers.
