Logitech G715 review: the cutest mechanical keyboard ever
The TKL formats (no numeric keypad) are popular and we must admit that they are very practical for saving space. The G715 is however not the most compact (37 x 15.7 cm) and it still weighs almost a kilo (976 g exactly).
This is notably due to the presence of dedicated multimedia keys on the top of the keyboard; on the right are the buttons for switching from one music to another, the play button and the mute ; on the left, those allowing to manage the connectivity, the brightness and the game mode which deactivates the Windows key. A handy volume wheel accompanies the whole thing. It is unfortunately made of plastic and not metal, unlike the G915 from the same manufacturer or the K100 Air from Corsair.
The keyboard is otherwise quite thick (3.7 cm), but has a rather original palm rest, in the shape of a small cloud, to change from the classic gray or black rectangle; it is obviously a matter of taste. It should be noted, however, that it cannot be attached to the keyboard, which can be inconvenient when it is often moved around on your desk. Memory foam really would have made us feel like we were on cloud nine.
Another element that is out of the ordinary, you can change the chassis plate to change the color. You can choose it in pink or light green (20 € each) and packs of keys in the same colors are also available (40 €). So the options are pretty limited, but some might be interested.
The keys are also made of double injection PBT plastic, much more durable than ABS, and the coating is slightly rough. The set remains fairly classic, with a row of F keys to which shortcuts can be assigned in the Logitech G Hub software. We can also manage the effects and the colors of the backlighting among all the RGB colors (set to blue and pink by default), and this, key by key.
Under the chassis, nothing extraordinary, except for the presence of numerous non-slip feet and a small compartment dedicated to the radio receiver. The G715 connects in fact thanks to it in 2.4 GHz for reduced latency, essential in game, or in Bluetooth if you only do office automation. A USB-C cable is provided for charging, as well as an adapter to attach the dongle 2.4GHz.
