I only said "upwards" of $300. I mean, I honestly don't know how much a mechanical version of the G15 would cost. However, consider the cost of the most-expensive Deck keyboard: $176.00 for the Deck Legend Frost. I think that the mechanical version of the G15 would have to cost at least $250 for the extra G-keys, the LCD screen, and the 2-tone finish! But don't forget that it would still have the LED backlighting. Plus, I have a feeling that the price would have to include the "Logitech" brand name. So $250 might be a conservative guess.

After that it would be great.
But the arrow keys are in the exact same spot with or without the extra keys.

But they have a bunch of keys around them. They don't stick out like they used to. I don't even have to look at the keyboard and still see that arrow keys are there. This would make them harder to spot.

He has a point, it did take a bit to get used to. Only a couple weeks though. The vertical enter key is the real PITA; I had to remap \\ to enter, enter to backspace, and backspace to \\.

The Enter button on the finnish layout looks like that to make room for the letters ö ä å.

Yeah, that's the standard style in the EU; note the keyboard was made in Germany. I first ran into that in Denmark they have (å, æ, and ø). Man I had trouble typing at the hotel internet café.

Talking about different layouts, I once tried a french layout at an airport lounge. First I thought it was broken or something (or someone had messed with settings) but then I looked down and saw the layout. It was weird. I wonder how they handle FPS games... Would they have to remap everything?

The games would come with a different mapping by default.

In addition to reviewing the U9BL I may be doing some product testing for them. This means I won't be able to review many of their future products on HWA aside from the U9BL (potential conflict of interest and all), but I will be able to provide insight for them into how they can improve their products, and also might be able to voice some opinions from OCN. However, you'll have to make suggestions blind as in-development products would be NDA. But if you have any general ideas you'd like passed along I should be able to do that.

I have a great suggestion... Don't put cherry blue on a gaming keyboard .

Next they should make a keyboard with red backlighting and mx red switches.
