Logitech G815 – Mechanical Keyboard
The Logitech G815 is a mechanical gaming keyboard introduced in August 2019. Together with the wireless Logitech G915, the keyboard makes the debut of Logitech’s low-profile GL switches.
Low-profile Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Three different kinds of switches are available for Logitech G815: GL Tactile, GL Clicky and GL Linear. GL Tactile provide a small tactile bump, GL Clicky have a tactile and audible feedback and GL Linear are simply linear switches with smooth key stroke. All three types are so called low-profile switches, their height is only about half of the height of a traditional switch. Thus, the keyboard is overall very thin with a total height of only 22 mm.
Even though the Logitech G815 is thin, it is not really a compact keyboard – the many special keys need quite some space: on the left, there are five configurable macro keys (G1-G5) and above the function keys are some controls for switching profiles, managing illumination and activating / deactivating the gaming mode. Moreover, the keyboard features dedicated multimedia controls with an edgeless volume wheel. A convenient USB passthrough allows to connect an arbitrary USB device directly at the keyboard. The Logitech G815 has no wrist rest, but you could argue that due to its low-profile design, a wrist rest isn’t needed anyway.
The keyboard features full RGB illumination, in other words, every single key can be lit in one of about 16.8 million colors. Brightness, coloring and animations are configured via Logitech G Hub software and can easily be adapted on the fly by making use of the dedicated function key. Lightsync RGB technology enables to synchronize the lighting of the keyboard with the lighting of other compatible devices (e.g. speakers from Logitech).
Comparison of tactile vs linear vs clicky
When buying the keyboard, you need to decide for one of the three available switch types. If you prefer the traditional feel and click from mechanical switches, then GL Clicky is the clear choice. If the acoustic level is an important factor and you want to have a silent mechanical keyboard, then you can take either GL Tactile or GL Linear. The decision between the tactile and the linear switches depends mostly on personal preference, but since the tactile feedback is not so strong, the difference between those two variants is actually not that big.
Comparison of G815 vs G915
The Logitech G915 is a wireless keyboard that effectively looks the same as Logitech G815 and also offers almost identical features. The main difference is their mode of connection (wireless vs USB cable) and subsequent changes. The G915 has a battery as it is required for wireless operation and the USB passthrough is naturally only available for the G815. Last but not least, there are differences in pricing – at the time of publication, the G815 has a suggested retail price of $199.99 while the G915 has a suggested retail price of $249.99.

Logitech G815 RGB Review
Quality gaming peripherals help you get the gaming edge and enjoy everyday use. A beautiful keyboard decorates the desktop of an office worker or a gamer, provides additional convenience for typing and interacting with a computer. The Logitech G815 RGB review, which describes in detail all the “chips” of the new gadget from a well-known brand, will convince you of this.
The mechanical keyboard comes to the user in a cardboard box, where, in addition to the gadget itself, there is only technical documentation. There are no replacement keycaps included in the package.
The gadget differs from other gaming devices in its ultra-slim body and minimal weight. Its design can be called one of the best in the field of gaming gadgets and the pinnacle of developer skill. The basis of the gadget is a polished steel plate. The top is made of aluminum for increased structural strength. The gadget is able to withstand the strongest mechanical impacts during the game and work.
Comfort and functionality
When designing the keyboard, engineers paid great attention to the shape of the body and keycaps. They are optimized in such a way as to provide maximum comfort for the gamer and office worker.
Playback volume is not controlled by buttons, but by a rotary wheel. They can change the volume steplessly, achieving the desired sound level.
Logitech G815 RGB Keyboard connects to a computer with a USB cable. It is necessary for the exchange of data between the gadget and running applications. Additionally, a separate USB port is provided on the case. It can be used to exchange data and charge wireless devices. To ensure a full-fledged high-speed connection and charging devices, the gadget must be connected to the computer with an additional wire.
Rugged and durable
The steel parts of the keyboard have been brushed for a better appearance. Keycaps are covered with an oleophobic layer. Therefore, during typing and a long game, they do not get dirty.
The steel base ensures that the gadget will not break when you press hard on the keys, falls to the floor and hits.
The Logitech G815 RGB is designed to be comfortable to use during long gaming sessions or a work day. The keyboard has a very small height, but due to the thoughtful shape of the keycaps, you can type text on it for a long time without fatigue in the hands.
Latest flat mechanical switches
Despite having a minimal height compared to other gaming keyboards, this gadget has GL mechanical switches. Compared to other switches, they have half the height, providing a short key travel. At the same time, the same accuracy, speed and clarity of operation as in the famous Cherry MX is maintained.
When purchasing a keyboard, the user can choose one of three types of switches:
- Haptic – Provides tactile feedback to inform the user when they are triggered, which is important in fast-paced games and touch typing. Thanks to tactile feedback, this keyboard is recommended for fans of first-person shooters.
- Linear – Switches operate silently and do not have a distinct actuation point. These switches are recommended for users who need to press keys frequently and quickly. For example, while playing MMO games.
- Clicky – These switches have a very tactile actuation point and make a distinctly audible sound when pressed. Such switches are recommended for those users who like the old-school clicks of the gaming gadget.
The Logitech G815 RGB gaming keyboard features full color LED backlighting that can be flexibly configured using keyboard shortcuts or PC software. Each key can be illuminated with one of 16.8 million colors and make the LEDs work separately from the rest.
The gamer can select animation effects from the available list and program their glow pickups. Support for lightsync technology makes it possible to synchronize the glow scheme with the music being played, the picture on the screen changing, or the occurrence of certain events in the game.
Keyboard lighting syncs with lighting patterns of other Logitech gaming peripherals.
Soft keys can be used to switch effects and adjust brightness. In total, 7 options are available for different light removal, which are pre-programmed and registered in the firmware. Through the software, the user can create and memorize 2 more additional schemes.
Fantastic control options
The gaming keyboard has a complete set of keys with a side number pad and function line. Therefore, a gamer or office user can use their favorite keyboard combinations without pressing additional modifier keys.
In addition, there was a place on the case for buttons to control the playback of music and video files. Using the buttons, you can change the volume without using software, start and stop playing tracks, switch between individual records.
Logitech G hub software
Gadget can work without software by connecting to computer USB port. But access to the management of all functions and fine-tuning is available only after installing the logitech g hub software. The software allows you to flexibly customize the Logitech G815 RGB lighting, create your own macro sequences, and remap keyboard shortcuts.
In addition, the utility allows you to configure individual presets and profiles for each game separately, connect to third-party applications. The software already has control schemes for Discord, OBS and other utilities for gamers. You can download profiles created by other users and distribute your own.
Pros and cons
The main advantages of the device are:
- Premium appearance of the device, the use of high-quality steel and brushed aluminum to make the device.
- Full color illumination with customization options and presets.
- Macro programming and compatibility with games and auxiliary applications.
The disadvantages include an insufficient number of presets to control the operating modes without the use of software. The price of the device is fully justified by the capabilities provided to the user, high-quality materials and assembly.
You can buy the Logitech G815 RGB keyboard in the Clife online store for quality gaming peripherals. To place an order, fill out the form in the catalog or contact the sales manager by phone.
Logitech G815 LightSync RGB GL Linear
Smaller, more convenient and more efficient!
The G815 Lightsync is an impressive amount of functionality packed into a slim and stylish keyboard design! Lightsync RGB backlight technology, programmable G-buttons, low-profile GL switches available in three different versions: Linear, Clicky and Tactile, as well as a whole range of ergonomic solutions for your convenience – all this is perfectly combined in this keyboard model!
– State-of-the-art Lightsync RGB lighting system that uses integrated Lightsync technology.
– Low profile mechanical switches.
– Small thickness, which is only 2.2 cm.
It is known that almost any keyboard located on the surface of the desktop a priori creates certain inconveniences, and all because it is much more comfortable to hold hands on an absolutely flat plane. Thus, the thinner the device, the better for the user! That is why Logitech engineers have focused on the minimum thickness of the keyboard and its, shall we say, sophistication of design. At the same time, all of the above did not affect the performance and reliability of the device. The G815 has retained these properties in excellent condition and is ready to withstand high loads day after day for more than one year!
The front side of the keyboard is a monolithic plate made of durable 5052 aluminum alloy, which, paired with a reliable base, makes the device as durable as possible. But Logitech didn’t stop there!
Robust and reliable
What is responsible for the reliability of the keyboard design? This is primarily an aluminum plate and a base, which in this model is made of reinforced steel. The front side of the G815 Lightsync has a brushed surface that is quite pleasant to the touch, and the keycaps of the keyboard boast a special oleophobic coating, so that your fingerprints are practically not left on them. This model is designed to serve you for many, many months and years, without any problems!
Ergonomics in every detail!
The Logitech G815 Lightsync features a comfortable aluminum scroll wheel located on the top right corner of the keyboard. It allows you to adjust the volume at any time, while spending a minimum of time. In addition, in the arsenal of the device you will find a whole set of multimedia keys, which are distinguished by a particularly soft and smooth pressing. And what is no less important: they make it possible to customize the operation of multimedia programs even during the game, literally in a matter of seconds!
Minimum thickness and maximum ergonomics!
The thinness of the G815 Lightsync has been achieved through a range of components and ergonomic solutions. Among them, the GL mechanical switches, which are distinguished by excellent performance, occupy a special place. The thin design of the keyboard allows you to place your hands in a more comfortable and natural position, so you can spend a huge amount of time in your favorite game or workflow without experiencing discomfort.
Low height and excellent work efficiency!
Low profile GL mechanical switches are one of the key features of this model. They, as you may have guessed, have a significantly lower height compared to other analogues widely used on the market. At the same time, the switches are by no means inferior to their competitors in terms of speed and accuracy of operation, as well as in response and overall level of reliability. In addition, GL are produced in three different versions for you to choose from, take a look:
– GL Clicky provides a distinct, audible click and tactile feedback.
– GL Tactile are distinguished by soft and smooth operation with somewhat less tactility of work.
– GL Linear – linear switches with absolutely smooth operation.
A new level of visual customization!
Each G815 key is capable of reproducing a bright and varied glow, which is ensured by modern Lightsync technology. It guarantees stable operation of RGB-glow with a fairly wide range of functionality. At your disposal will be 16,800,000 colors and shades, as well as custom lighting effects and animations, with which you can personalize the glow of the device according to one or another preference. It is worth adding that for detailed settings of the backlight, the Logitech G HUB application is required. It will help you quickly understand all the parameters in order to start playing as soon as possible.
Quick backlight setting
In front of the keyboard there are several additional keys with a soft and smooth stroke when pressed, one of which is designed to control the operation of the RGB glow. It allows you to adjust the brightness of the backlight, as well as switch between preset lighting effects. To do this, you need to use a combination of this button with the numbers 1-7, and using the G HUB application you can create your own light profiles and assign them to keys 8 and 9.
Extensive possibilities for personalizing the work of the glow
The G HUB app gives you a wide range of keyboard control options, including RGB lighting. Creation of custom lighting effects, patterns and animations, selection of various colors and shades among 16,800,000, as well as the presence of a special Lightsync editor tool – all this you can do quite quickly and without any difficulties with this software. In addition, the backlight is able to function in a completely different mode, reacting with lightning speed to ongoing in-game events or played sounds, which allows it to perfectly complement your atmosphere in any game!
Lightsync RGB backlight also has the function of synchronization with other devices that have the same glow. This will allow you to create a real color symphony in your room, centered on the game setup and its many components. Immerse yourself in a bright, indescribable atmosphere filled with your favorite colors and shades with Logitech!
Ergonomics and design
G815 perfectly combines stylish modern design and wide functionality. Both the first and second are quite important for modern gamers, who appreciate not only performance, but also a nice appearance. At the same time, the functionality of the device also relies on programmable G-keys, with which you can perform even more in-game actions in seconds! It is worth adding that the entire range of options and capabilities of the device will be available in the Logitech G HUB application. It can be found and downloaded on the official website of the developers.
On the left side of the keyboard are five special buttons marked “G”. They can be programmed to perform various tasks and actions, as well as to play macros of any complexity. More convenient use of applications, quick sending of system commands and, of course, even greater in-game efficiency due to the expanded functionality of the capabilities – all this is provided by the device precisely due to the G-keys! By the way, programming and setting up the operation of these controls is carried out using the Logitech G HUB application.
Three setting profiles
There are three buttons on the front of the G815 Lightsync called M1, M2 and M3. They are designed to switch between individual settings profiles for G-keys, the total number of which, you guessed it, is also three. Thus, you can quickly change from one G-profile to another, and if you sum up the total number of programmable commands for G-buttons, we get an impressive figure: 15 different actions and possible macros.
Deactivation of extra buttons? As easy as pie!
Game Mode or, in other words, Game Mode, well known to many users. And in this model from Logitech, it has even more features! What is it about? The game mode allows you to block not only the Windows button, which is “popular” among many gamers, but also any other keys of your choice. To do this, you just need to use the appropriate control element. The Game Mode button is located in the central part of the front panel and it is with its help that you can activate the lock. By the way, the detailed setting of the game mode is always available in the Logitech G HUB application, where you can quickly carry out all the necessary manipulations.
Pleasant little things
Which do you think would be faster: connect a mouse or a headset with a USB interface to the system unit or to the keyboard on your desk? The answer is of course obvious! That is why Logitech specialists equipped their offspring with an additional USB connector, for which a separate cable is provided that provides fast charging and appropriate data transfer when connecting portable devices to the keyboard. This is a very convenient, efficient and ergonomic solution. It would seem a mere trifle, but in fact it matters, doesn’t it?
Convenient multimedia buttons
Immediately above the numeric keypad are multimedia buttons and a rather wide knurled wheel for adjusting the volume. This will give you the ability to control the operation of multimedia applications even during the game. In addition to adjusting the sound level, you can quickly switch between different tracks or videos, mute the sound, and pause and restart playback when needed. It’s really much more convenient, you just have to try it once, and you’ll see it!
G HUB – Powerful and Intuitive Control System from Logitech!
To gain comprehensive control over your game weapons, you need an appropriate control system, which was developed by Logitech specialists. Setting up RGB lighting, programming buttons and creating macros of any complexity – all this will be at your disposal thanks to the convenient and intuitive G HUB application. With it, you can also fine-tune the various parameters of the Logitech devices in a particular game as accurately as possible.
