Located on the left side of the Logitech G11 keyboard, the 18 G keys and three shift modes (M1, M2 and M3) allow gamers to create up to 54 custom commands per game; the G11 keyboard defaults to these game-specific settings when the title is launched. The keys can also be programmed as shortcuts for non-gaming functions in other popular software applications.
The keyboard also features a gaming mode switch, which, when turned on, disables the Windows key so gamers won't get dropped out of a game if they accidentally press the key. A button on the keyboard turns the lighting on or off and offers two possible brightness levels, providing easy viewing in any lighting condition. The G11 keyboard includes two built-in full-speed USB ports, making it easy to plug in a mouse, a headset or other peripherals without filling up all the ports on the PC.
The flagship Logitech G15 keyboard includes an innovative backlighted display that can show vital in-game information, or data from other applications.
The Logitech G11 keyboard will be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in July. In the U.S., the G11 will have a suggested retail price of $69.99.
