3 out of 5 eggsA good piece of hardware, but not perfect

Pros: Lots of programmable keys, more than any other game board I've seen. The "G" keys are tough, as is the thumb paddle joystick. I've had two of these now and I beat the bejeezus out of the joystick (we're talking a lot of force on it when I get excited), and neither of them broke on me.

If you buy all Logitech "G" series peripherals (game board, keyboard, mouse), the software integrates them all, which is very nice. I haven't used the scripting engine, but the macro functions are thorough, and work well.

Cons: The software is both a good thing and a bad thing. It has several minor annoyances, for example the software window doesn't save it's last location, so every freakin' time you open it you have to drag it to the location you want it to be at on your screen(s). The software window is big, ugly, isn't resizable, and looks dated. I often have to hit the Windows key, then the game window - depending on the software version, more than once, to get the automatic game profiles to load.

The bottom thumb button is badly designed. On both the G13's I have owned it was always flaky, and hard to use, and on both of them it eventually just stopped working. I took the G13 apart to see if there was anything I could do to fix it, and the trigger for that button is just really flimsy and badly designed.

Other Thoughts: Despite the negatives, I love this piece of hardware, and will be very sad if there is no suitable replacement for it when it is no longer made.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming pad, bad thumb stick

Pros: Had this thing for years and years now. So much nicer than WASD for movement. I used this for all my MMO's I used to play online, FPS, RTS, and now I can't live without it. Makes a huge difference with the quick access to buttons.

Cons: Hated the thumb stick so I tore it apart and replaced it with an xbox controller stick (videos online to do this). After that it is perfect

Other Thoughts: Macros are nice. Sky is the limit. Onscreen display for CPU, GPU, temps, framerate, etc. Very handy.

3 out of 5 eggsSoftware Leaves Something Lacking

Pros: The layout is excellent, the keys are spaced widely enough to be comfortable under my big hands. Most of the keys actuate smoothly.

Cons: The keys surrounding the thumbstick feel stiff and shallow, and they frequently fail to actuate.

The software could use a lot of work.
* There's no way to sort the game profiles. Web research indicates they're sorted by some sort of generated GUID, rather than alphabetically. Not only is it not exposed to the user, but it's utterly useless anyway.
* The macro programming doesn't seem to work well with CTRL/ALT/SHIFT combinations, or any simultaneous keystroke for that matter.
* The default view when you start the software is a picture of the device. Who cares?! Why bother?! It should go directly to something functional.
* The display colors in the software do not accurately reflect the colors that actually show up on the device.
* It has three mode selections for each game profile, but there is no way to copy a discrete button set within the same profile. If you want to create a variation on a profile, you need to start over from scratch.
* It would be very nice if you could script a macro that would fire when you changed modes within a profile.

Other Thoughts: Make the thumb buttons more like the rest of the buttons, and the hardware would be near perfect. It still won't fix the software, though.

5 out of 5 eggsstep your game up

Pros: Color Changing Screen, Programmable, Does the same as the Higher priced G13. Comfortable

Cons: Does not bring me beverages during gaming.

Other Thoughts: I love my ergonomic keyboard for normal internet usage. But I hate it for gaming. The G13 is like having the best of both worlds.

5 out of 5 eggsterrific game pad

Pros: I have had mine for nearly ten years and it still works. One of the thumb buttons broke but I was able to fix it with some writer and a bit of effort.

The support staff couldn't sell me any parts so I had to fix it myself. I tired a gamepad from Razor but it just didn't work quit as well.

software is great and continually improving.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: Got it on sale; fairly easy set-up; works with all my games

Cons: Learning curve; my fingers are still cramped, same as if I were using a keyboard

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to use with an HTPC/Gaming rig I have hooked up to a 52" TV in the living room. I use to use a device called The Claw for FPS gaming but the manufacture is no longer supporting the device so I have no drivers for my 64-bit version of Windows 7. I've got the G13 hooked up to a 10' extension cord plugged in to a powered USB hub n it works fine. Many more buttons than my Claw but it's not as ergonomic and there is a learning curve. I have small to medium sized hands and it fits fine.

4 out of 5 eggsUnleash Your Own Key Layout!

Pros: Compatible with most games either with the software profile or you own custom profile. The software allows you to save profiles on the device itself to internal storage. Makes some of those games with less then optimal key layout and issues with key re-mapping *cough* Battlefield 3/4 more playable. Also has some nice added features like a system monitor showing CPU usage and RAM usage, clock and date, etc.

Cons: A bit expensive but cost of software development has value.

1 out of 5 eggsBought two, both failed within an hour

Pros: Plenty of keys. Decent macro capabilities. Ergonomic design.

Cons: Keys have failed on two different keypads.

Other Thoughts: I've been a long time user of the G13. I'm still using one that I purchased several years ago on my desktop PC. I purchased a second one at a local retailer to travel with a few months ago and got one use out of it before the two keys by the mini joystick failed. I purchased a second one through Newegg and within an hour one of the same keys failed.

4 out of 5 eggsHad mine almost a decade and still can't live without it.

Pros: Endlessly programmable and the software for it continues to get better with every release. Works with *any* game... though perhaps more suitable for first person and third person games. Solidly constructed... really takes a licking and keeps on ticking. The mechanical aspects of this device are seemingly indestructable (see cons). Heavy enough it doesn't slide around on the desk easily (see cons). Display is bright and high contrast. Thumbstick is the best thing since multiplayer for first person and third person perspective games. Buttons are terrifically placed for easy use and reach even with small hands.

Cons: While the mechanical aspects (buttons, screen, thumb stick, casing) have taken everything I can throw at them for over half a decade, there has been some wear and tear.

The palm rest has begun to flake away and is now almost half missing. The parts that aren't are worn almost completely smooth. None-the-less, even in this state it is not uncomfortable to use and I often clock in 4-5 hour sessions with no discomfort.

The only real issue I have had with this device is the completely lack of xinput support and very limited "gamepad" functionality.

While it does have "gamepad" functionality in the form of the analog thumb stick which has a single joystick button underneath it (similar to the thumb sticks on an xbox360 or ps2/ps3 controller) all other buttons are exclusively programmable as keyboard keys, mouse buttons, or macros. They can not be programmed to output joystick button presses in any way.

What gamepad functionality it has is also hamstrung by the fact that most modern games do not support directinput (which was used for gamepads and joysticks prior to the launch of the xbox360). Instead they typically use xinput. The g13 does not support xinput in any shape or form and as such the thumbstick can not be used as an analog input for modern games. It can only be used digital (by programing keyboard keys to each direction).

Other Thoughts: Despite the caveats above about the lack of xinput support I have taken to programing the WASD keys to the thumbstick for movement. I find this allows me to control in game movement with a single finger and vastly increases my reactions where movement is concerned.

It also eliminates all occurrences of the finger pretzel situation where, for example, you are moving forward-left and need to press the Q key or switch to Weapon 1 without lifting a finger off W and A. Considering that you will almost always be moving in at least two directions at any given moment this can be a fairly common problem.

When I have to go back to using a keyboard I struggle.
