Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Backlit keys, macro keys, lots of functionality, keys have a good feel, cool, good size.

Cons:No wrist rest, few lighting options, download could have been smoother.

The Bottom Line: The Logitech G105 gaming keyboard for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is USB 2.0 wired keyboard that can be used for more efficient gaming as well as regular tasks.


The Official PC keyboard of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is a keyboard with a very high cool factor. It has a cool look to it and military-style night-vision green LED backlighting. However, it is also useful. It has a numerical keypad, a number of macro keys, other useful specialty keys, and you can use it at night. The keyboard is designed for the game Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3. However, you can take advantage of its special features playing any game, or when writing documents, or when doing other things.

I received this Logitech Gaming Keyboard via the Amazon Vine program about a month ago. I ended up giving it to my middle son who plays a lot of games and have the most use for it. He rarely uses it with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 since it is not his favorite game but he uses it with many other games.



An Overview of the Logitech G105 Gaming Keyboard

The wired (USB) Logitech G105 Gaming Keyboard for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 has a lot of keys. It features all the “usual” keys, a numerical keypad, and you can use the F-keys keys for volume, mute, start, stop, pause, play, pause, rewind, etc. You can press up to five keys simultaneously. The step arrow keys are located in a perfect position with no adjacent keys, which makes it easy to use them extensively. The keyboard also has a game/desktop mode switch, which disables the Windows/Context Menu keys so that they won't accidentally interrupt a game session.

The keyboard also has six programmable G-keys (G1 to G6), which functionality can be toggled using M-keys (M1 to M3). This gives in total 18 unique functions. You press the macro record key MR, and then the macro-G key (let say G3), and then you type in your sequence of single and/or multiple key presses, and then you press the MR Key again. The next time you press G3 the sequence you recorded will occur. You can record all kinds of sequences, not just those useful in games. For example, I recorded ctrl-alt-del to launch the task manager with one key press. I’ve also recorded often used long words and terms, which is useful when you edit a document. To be able to do this you need to download the software.

As mentioned the keys are backlit (green LED backlighting), which makes it easier to use the keyboard when it is dark or the light is dim. The LED backlighting has three levels that can be set Off, Medium, Bright. The keyboard comes with a one year warranty. The dimensions of the key board are 8.8 x 1.6 x 19.6 inches and it weighs 2.7 pounds.


Downloading the Software for the Logitech G105 Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Keyboard

To download the software you got to their web site

http://www.logitech.com/downloads

You can choose to press the auto detect button (Detect your devices) that is what I did, or enter the model number, and there are two browse options as well (no picture and picture). This takes you to the product page where you can select the Download tab and the OS and then you click the download button.

According to the quick user manual you can also go straight to the G105 keyboard and select downloads by using this web site.

https://www.logitech.com/G105/support

Well this does not work. Overall the http://www.logitech.com/ is easy to navigate and this is not difficult. However, I found it curious that there is not a quicker way to get to the Logitech Gaming Software.


Thoughts and Opinions on the Logitech G105 Gaming Keyboard

I think the keyboard is fairly comfortable. The keys are raised, easy to locate and has a comfortable feel when you press them. It is much better than the flat and dull feeling the keys have on some keyboards. I like the numerical keypad since I used that to quickly type certain extended ascii characters (foreign language). The keyboard is mostly quiet but perhaps not as quiet as one might want.

The keyboard is not too deep (8.8 inch) so it easily fits in front of a monitor. However, it does not have a wrist rest and there was no attachable wrist rest in the box. Otherwise it is a fairly large keyboard and it has a lot of keys (not too many). The keyboard could have been raised more in the back for better comfort.

There is not a big difference between medium and bright and my son would have liked bright to be a little brighter. Some gaming keyboards offer more options and you can even set the color of LED lights. That is not the case with this keyboard.

This keyboard is not wireless, which I don’t see as a disadvantage. Wireless keyboards needs batteries and I’ve noticed delays with wireless keyboards that I don’t see with USB keyboards. A wireless mouse is more useful since you move the mouse around a lot but since the keyboard is not moving around one wire is not an issue.

Overall I am pretty happy with this keyboard and I find it to be useful for a lot else than the Call of Duty game and also for other tasks. However, I don’t think it is a perfect keyboard.
