Logitech's G915 Lightspeed offers the best of both worlds. It's a low-profile mechanical keyboard, so it has a shorter press. Its sleek, light body has a professional look that can fit in at an office. The keyboard feels a little heavier (2.24 pounds) than it looks.

The Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED is among the best gaming keyboards that we've tested. It comes with an excellent set of extra features, especially for a wireless full-sized mechanical keyboard, but unfortunately, you can only program the dedicated macro keys. The keyboard's typing experience is only okay mainly because of the ABS keycaps and the fact that the keys bottom out quite rapidly, which may feel odd for some people.

Pros[**]
  • Low profile is comfortable to type on
  • Dedicated macro keys, multi-device pairing, and full RGB backlighting
  • Good ergonomics
Cons[**]
  • Very large and heavy
  • Only dedicated macro keys are programmable

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Logitech G915 is a sleek, attractive peripheral with satisfying mechanical switches. There's a column of macro keys on the far left as well as three macro-proflie keys. The G915 doesn't come with a wrist rest, which is a problem when you're dealing with such a thin, low-to-the-ground keyboard.

  • Sleek, attractive design
  • Satisfying low-profile key caps

Cons[**]
  • Lacks wrist rest

Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
Low profile mechanical keys make for an easier typing experience. Logitech's GL switches have an actuation distance of 1.5mm, a total travel distance of 2.7mm. RGB lighting and additional buttons for macros and media give a subtle assurance that the G915 can cut it in PUBG and Google Docs alike.

  • High-quality RGB lighting
  • Low profile switches
Cons[**]
  • Lack of empirical performance data
