While Logitech wireless gaming mice such as the G305 and G PRO Wireless are some of the most popular options, we often forget that Logitech are also the leaders in regard to wireless keyboards.

This is where their G915 TKL comes into play, a costly wireless keyboard that incorporates their Lightspeed sensor that a lot of you may be in the market for.

Logitech was kind enough to send over one of the G915 TKL's equipped with brown tactile switches for us to check out.

So, does the performance of the keyboard justify the high price tag? Here's our comprehensive review!

Keycaps and Switches - Score 90

One of the most important aspects you are going to research when in the market for a new keyboard is the switches and keycaps that are offered.

The G915 uses low profile keycaps in favor of the traditional full-blown mechanical ones. While they are still 'mechanical' keycaps they have a faster actuation point than other boards, and you will not get responsive feedback when you are pressing in on these keycaps.

Now, this may be a massive con to some of you out there; and may ultimately steer you in the direction of another keyboard.

This is our second time reviewing a keyboard with low profile keycaps, and Logitech has done a fantastic job in perfecting these keycaps.

Moving on to the switches Logitech offers, there are some variants you have the choice of when purchasing this board.

They offer the following switches when purchasing the

G915:

GL Clicky - audible click and tactile feedback

GL Tactile - a gentle bump for some tactile feedback

GL Linear - a completely smooth keystroke

We have been using the tactile variant, which is the classic brown switches most of you have become accustomed to with keyboards nowadays. These offer sizable feedback when typing, and overall we are very impressed considering the low profile keycaps!

Wireless and Battery Life - Score 90

The main selling point or why you may be taking a look at the G915 is the wireless functionality of the board.

Logitech is no stranger to selling wireless products, and they offer some of the best sensors in the market right now.

Within the G915 is the Lightspeed sensor, this is essentially Logitech's fastest sensor, and the wireless connectivity will never fail when using this board.

The convenience of using this board wherever you want and not being bound by a wire is an aspect we did not think we would love as much as we did.

But we can wholeheartedly say, that it is one of the best features of a keyboard that we may have been missing out on!

Battery life wise, Logitech notes that you can get up to 30 hours with the brightness on full. We can assume this will only go up the lower the brightness is!

Other Features - Score 85

There isn't a lot to say regarding the additional features that come with the G915.

All in all, the bonus media keys along with the volume dial at the top of the keyboard are a nice addition. But, they are not going to be the deciding factor when it comes to purchasing this board.

We will mention how the construction and materials used for the G915 are some of the best we have tested. The G915 is one of the sturdiest boards on the market right now, and should drop it; there is a stable chance it will hold any impact.

The Logitech G915 is one of the premier options when it comes to wireless gaming keyboards in 2021.

The outstanding battery life, accompanied by the excellent low profile key switches is a combination in which you will not be disappointed with.
