    Hi all,

    i just got this keyboard a couple of days ago and this is a great keyboard with its LCD Display and its navigation knobs. Now my question to you all is: Do you also have this keyboard and if yes, do you know good resource websites that host G15 LCD Applets and other neat stuff for it? So far i´ve found one applet that displays realtime Teamspeak Information whi has joined/left, which channel you are in etc.

    Let´s discuss it :)

    I want one, but I can only find the new v2 version but I prefer the original, more buttons and it's blue.

    I dont own one but I know there is software that works with rF to show you real time tyre temps and alike, It also works with arca but beware, Most people think its a cheat as arca only allows you to see temps in pit road. :)

    I have the v1, but I am thinking about getting the v2 because of its smaller size.
    I have never used the Macro (G) keys, so no need for so much here :)

    Bought v2 last weekend and returned it right away because it was this bloody Dutch layout again although it was mentioning the US-Int on the box art. Damn Logitech.

    Ordered the US-Int directly from the Logi site, because the normal shops are apparently not able to get a non-Dutch layout here.
    Scheduled for arrival in a few hours.

    See the differences; Dutch logitech layout:
    [​IMG]
    US-Int Layout:
    [​IMG]

    Both are qwerty keyboards; The Dutch has a second \-key besides the left shift, which is cut in half.
    The main Enter key is also not like the normal one, but double height and a bit smaller. Therefor the normal \-key is placed left to it.

    For the average Dutchman no problems, but if you are used to type with 10 fingers (blind) its just insane.

    PS. this is just a sample image, not a G15 image :)

    Logitech sucks!!!!!

    I ordered on the Logitech NL website (the only one that ships to NL). I could choose which layout I wanted. (Belgium/Germany/Dutch/UK/US-Int)
    Choosed US-Int. Just opened the box today, and the damn Dutch layout was in the box.

    Calling with Logitech is of no use. The magic answer:
    Logitech puts randomly a layout for that country in the box. For NL it could be Dutch or US-Int layout. You cannot see it on the outside of the box.
    I can fully refund this one and the advice is to open each box in the normal shops and hopefully find a real US-Int layout.

    Of course no shop will open it for you. You have to break the Logitech seal for it.

    Help needed:
    Is there someone in the US/Canada/Other who can send me a real Logitech G15 version 2 (The amber lightning) with a real US-Int layout?
    This one:
    [​IMG]


    I can pay with paypal or normal international payment if supported by my bank.

    My 'old' G15 was ordered via Amazon.com @Tigerdirect.com. But they don't send it to Europe anymore. Try it :)
    You can still order via other companies, but so far only around 80+ dollar shipping costs, excluding Customstax (in case its checked). A bit too much for a keyboard that's 69 eur in the normal shops.


    The message on Amazon.com:
