For ordinary users, a keyboard may just be an ordinary accessory. As long as it’s good enough for typing, it serves its function. But for gamers, we know it is much more than that. In this review, we will take a look into Logitech’s new line of wireless keyboards. In particular, the Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard. So sit back, relax, and let’s have a look at our latest guide, the Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard Review.
In this section of our Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard Review, we will take a look at the first thing we see, the packaging. The keyboard arrived in great shape thanks to our mail courier. The packaging comes in a shiny box, with the keyboard taking centre stage. I like how simple yet elegant it looks. We used a cutter to cut open the tapes which are stuck in there pretty tightly. A good sign that the packaging is well-made.
Written on the box are the “next dimension features”. This includes the key features (which we will discuss in further detail later), and some warranty information. Everything you need to know at the surface level about the product is visible from the get-go.
Once opened, it only gets better. The keyboard is protected by layers of beautiful, carbon-black cardboard. A plastic mould is present on the edges to prevent the keyboard from moving around during shipping. The keyboard itself even has plastic wrapped around the backside and edges for even more protection. All of these great packaging design choices combined means that the keyboard is sure to arrive in pristine condition.
After taking the keyboard off the box, a beautiful, glossy black plastic almost wraps around the components. There are a couple of things including a Micro USB connector and a Lightspeed USB dongle. And of course, a manual containing installation instructions and warranty information, in different languages.
Overall, the packaging has a pretty, attention-grabbing cover. It also has a beautiful and compact design inside as well. It is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Now that we have unboxed it, let’s go to our Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard review’s design and functionality section.
Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard Review – Design and Functionality
The Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard has it all: a thin, low-profile design, perfect for gaming on the go. It also has reliable mechanical switches that provide precision and accuracy, and tactile feedback with each press.It’s quite a slim keyboard; even the engineers at Logitech seem proud at what they’ve achieved. It’s evident with what they’ve written on their website.
This means that you can fit this virtually in any bag. A keyboard pouch will do the trick. Now you have a great gaming experience anytime, anywhere, thanks to its portability.
The keyboard also has fully customizable RGB lights, meaning it’s easier to see in dim or dark settings. And it’s not too bright and serves its purpose. Again, they’re both functional and we like how beautiful these are. And in case the default settings ever bother you, you can always tweak the lighting to your liking.
Now, let’s dig through this awesome keyboard’s features.
Key features of the Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard
In this section of our Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard review, we will take a look at all the key features that make the Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard so great.
Ultra-fast and reliable wireless speeds
Being a wireless keyboard means less mess on your desk or gaming rig. But at the same time, some are concerned about latency issues. Concerns about input delays caused by data travelling from the keyboard to your system wirelessly. Thankfully, Logitech’s lightspeed technology means you get negligible latency.
With a single press of a button, the Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard allows for Bluetooth connectivity, a handy feature in this ever diverse tech world.
Logitech Gaming button
Besides the Bluetooth button on the top left lies the gaming button, which disables the start menu to prevent accidental presses during gaming. Although with the use of the Logitech software, you can configure it to do other things.
Low profile GL mechanical switches
These GL switches are designed for high performance and with gaming in mind, but with half of the physical height of typical mechanical switches. This ensures you get the same performance out of the Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard from other gaming keyboards but without the bulk.
Fully customizable RGB Lights
The Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard features a fully customizable RGB with lush and vibrant colours. And despite being wireless, the colours remain consistent throughout heavy gaming usage. You get the sleek keyboard design and the beautiful lights.
Ultra-long battery life
With only a single charge that takes only four hours, you can keep playing for hours on end, up to 40 hours to be exact, with the RGB enabled. You can also play while it’s plugged in. The Logitech G HUB will notify you if ever the battery runs low. This is indeed a worry-free, seamless experience.
Fully programmable G keys
Using the Logitech G HUB software, the G keys can be customized to your liking. Whether it be for gaming, functionality or keyboard shortcuts, any bind you desire is only one keypress away.
Media Keys and a Volume Wheel
To ensure a seamless and immersive experience, a volume wheel is included. It’s a simple add on that ensures the audio is easily adjustable and ensures a smooth experience while gaming. And to top it off, all the buttons on top means that even playing music is a great experience just by using the keyboard itself.
Logitech Gaming Software Support
The Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard has Logitech G HUB Software support that allows full control on your keyboard. Tweak things such as the RGB lighting, onboard profiles, and the programmable G keys.

Hands-on with the Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard
In this section of our Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard Review, we will share our first impressions, and how the product felt overall when we first tried it.
First of all, the looks. The dark, brushed aluminium colour looks fantastic. It looks very Logitech. We’re glad that this keyboard follows that trend.
We also noticed that the switches are attached directly onto the surface of the keyboard. The RGB lights shine through and it looks fantastic. And it also serves to make maintenance and cleaning a lot easier. Those are all great news for a gaming keyboard that is going to see a lot of use.
The keyboard includes two retractable feet at the bottom despite being a slim keyboard. It has settings on the height and by using it, it feels very comfortable. My wrists feel well-rested and we can type for long periods of time without feeling any strain.
The travel time between the keys and the presses is impressive, on par with your typical, bigger gaming keyboards. It feels like the same thing. The experience was so immersive that it gets you into gaming right away and does not feel intrusive. It feels natural right away and you forget you are using a brand-new keyboard.
This keyboard is also great for typing, I typed rather quickly and with little mistakes, given we were using and getting a feel for this keyboard for the first time.
The Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard is a low-profile, portable, wireless, gaming experience that allows you to be fully in control. Having all the given features means it feels immersive and smooth to use, without interrupting your tasks or gaming sessions.
The newly-engineered GL switches provide accurate keypresses and tactile feedback. The media keys and volume wheel ensure a seamless experience. And the fully-customizable RGB lights serves both as a light and a showstopper for all who see. Not to mention the fully programmable G2 keys for even more control of your overall experience.
For those who have trouble in cable management and just want a clean, sleek, and slim high-performance keyboard, the Logitech G915 Lightspeed Wireless Keyboard is the perfect keyboard for you.
