New keyboard

I bought myself a new computer keyboard last week to replace the 11-year-old Logitech G11 gaming keyboard that has served me so well. The replacement is a Logitech G19:


Logitech has stopped making them, and the replacements are not only not very nice, but really expensive. So I bought a G19 online from a site still selling them.

It's got a nice soft feel to the keys. The LCD screen can show a variety of things, but I'm using it as a clock. There are 12 programmable keys; I have programmed them to do things like Cut/Copy/Paste/Undo, and to insert text strings like my name or email address(es), all for convenience. The G19 acts as a USB hub too; it has two powered USB 2.0 ports. The keys are backlit, and the colour is configurable. It has big enter and backspace keys, just like I like them.

All in all, damn nice. Let's hope it lasts a decade, like its predecessor.
