i like the "game mode" that disables the windows key.

Think about it, I've been playing CS 1.6/source and many race games.

CS examples: on a killstreak in CoD 4 mw2 mod BOOM press the windows key instead of ctrl and thats how i died losing my streak DX lmao

Race games example: about to do the final turn, 1st place. press the windows key by accident SOME HOW and all sudden when i get into the game im last.

Conclusion im happy that that feature is finally going on keyboards. I had to pull out the start button just so i cant press it lol

well never really heard of it, but so far thats only 2 people admitting they have the features.

i looked at a G15 before and didnt find the thing in the "Features" idk if that was the old version or anything.

But the more ppl make this feature with *low end* keyboards like basic keyboards just with extra keys, comfort basically under 100$, the more ppl will buy them.

I'm pretty sure 1 person at LEAST had one time when they did that

Ya...G15 has had this since its initial release (2007 lol...welcome to the past Razer!) and all subsequent Logitech gaming keyboards have included the feature. Just slide the button over and Windows key is gone. This is a disappointing keyboard considering MMO users would require far more keys like the old G15, G19, G11, G110, and most preferentially, the G510.

And as far as I can recall, the G15, G11, and G110 have all been available for $40-$60 when on sale...so this isn't revolutionary in any way. Just Razer's entry into the market...

I'm a bit mixed on the thumb buttons personally, it might work, but I think I'd have to try one in person to get a handle on it.
