Logitech G19 Live Data
« on: November 23, 2015, 10:35:02 PM »
I was in the market for a new gaming keyboard and Dick Smith had the Logitech G19s priced totally wrong at $70 when at most places it's around $250.

It has a little LCD screen on it, so being the nerd I am I downloaded the SDK and wrote an app to display live info from AC. In the video I'm holding the camera with one hand and driving one handed with an xbox controller hence the wrong gear changes and crashing before I get to third!

Unsure if anyone else has this keyboard, but if you do and want the app let me know.

That's really great Joe. I get to miss out on TWO great deals - the keyboard AND your App.

Definition of frustration LOL

I'm annoyed i missed a bargain like that, I still use a discarded Acer keyboard and mouse from work, from 6 + years ago!, wonder why I don't do that well at FPSs?
Joe, want to make a quick 10% on the keyboard? :)

Haha nah I'm good. I wonder if they'll see their error and update their system. It was the last one at the time, but maybe they'll put more out.

There was a $250 price tag on the box but somehow that'd fallen off by the time I got to the checkout  ::)

Apart from the screen, what makes it worth $250?

No idea. Quite a lot of gaming keyboards are that sort of price. Has lots of programable buttons, USB ports, volume controls etc. You can also change the backlight colour which obviously makes you a better gamer.

Hi Joe, ive got the G510 with the led screen (not the fancy pants lcd one you have  ;D)

Any idea if the applet is transferrable between the platforms?
