Logitech G13 Advanced Gameboard

The G13 Advanced Gameboard is Logitech’s answer to gamers needs. It’s a fantastic light-weight, portable alternative for gamers who don’t want to lug

around a fullsize keyboard. I’ve used the Logitech G13 advanced game pad for over a year now and have logged many hundreds of hours with it and it has lived up to the quality I’ve come to expect from Logitech. The designers did an excellent job creating a comfortable and balanced layout.

The G13 comes with a quick guide start book, installation CD, drivers and custom profile software as well as a small packet of sticky rubber pieces to mark keys for a more tactile feel. It’s 11.2 in x 9.1in x 3.5 in and weights 2.1 Ibs. The G13 features 25 macro programmable keys plus an analog joystick, 3 different modes plus a quick record macro button, color changeable backlighting and a LCD panel that shows: your list of custom or default game profiles, clock and date, CPU and Ram performance monitor, a stopwatch and countdown timer and many other things. The average price for the G13 ranges anywhere from $60 – $79. You can order it directly from the Logitech website with free shipping or from one of the many retailers listed on the Logitech site.

On the button

The G13 really shines with its 25 programmable keys and analog joystick. It’s able to record macros with ease. It also has a quick macro button under the display screen for creating a macro on the fly. And if that wasn’t enough the G13 supports macro-scripting that uses the powerful Lua scripting language to create nearly any combination of mouse movements, macros, keystrokes, time delays, etc.
