Logitech G19s Continued

Once you flip the supports out at the back of the keyboard, you do get a bit of a better look at the keys, as far as your fingertips are concerned. Now the keys in successive rows are higher than the previous rows, so along with an ergonomic angle now, you fingers will feel like they reach less in this position.

The two meter, thick rubber cable that came out of the back of the G19s is bundled up in this image. At the ends of this dual cable there is a jack for AC power, along with the USB 2.0 connection, with a tag on it showing to install the drivers prior to connecting the keyboard.

This is the other half of the AC power plug. Here is the US plug ended Nalin power adapter to give the keyboard enough power for the LCD screen as well as helping to power the pair of pass-through USB 2.0 ports on the back.

On the underside of the keyboard you can see that Logitech offers plenty of cable management. There are two ways to enter the trails at the back of the board - they can cross to the center, and then be run through the various trails near the front edge.

At the back of the keyboard, if you wish to increase the angle of the keyboard, you can flip out the plastic feet that offer no rubber padding to grip onto the desk.

The front edge of the keyboard, near where the palm rest is to clip in, you do get a pair of rubber pads to keep the keyboard from sliding around on the desk.

Grabbing the palm rest that was shipped under the keyboard and clipping it into the keyboard shows that it not only clips in, but also has tabs to help support it. There are also three additional rubber pads to keep the keyboard in place since most of the weight will be here anyways.

Stepping back and flipping the G19s back over the correct way, you can see the full length palm rest fits well, is incorporated nicely, and looks as if it were all one piece when put together.

It was now time to power the G19s to have a look at how things worked. I got close up for this image due to the fact that the default blue that the back lighting was set to is very dim and tough to see with all of the photo lights on.

After playing in the software, I realized the lighting was at its maximum brightness, and I swapped over to the red LEDs as it tended to show up much better in the images. You will have full RGB customizability of these lights; I just chose this so it would photograph well.
