If they do decide to use mechanical keys give it to the g19 and i hear that keyboard slips around a lot fix that too, rubber feet on the top AND bottom. Were talking super silent, reduce distance, tactile feedback bounce keys here.
And to all the people complaining about lcd usage and software if your not using that display only for music your a fool.

Logitech if you really want to catch the eye of gamers then you too should create a line of mechanical keyboards. And if you really want to do this right, offer them with any color keyswitch (or at least the most popular reds, blues, browns). The only reason I haven't bought a mechanical keyboard yet is because I haven't found one with both the features that I want and the right color keyswitches.
What do I look for in a keyboard?
- Cherry MX Browns or Clear/White
- Media controls (that work!)
- Full size w/ Number pad
Other nice options
- Macro Keys
- Colored WASD keys

Love your product and swears by them only. Owns NUMEROUS product from you guys and as a sales rep, you guys are the only thing I recommend. But the mechanical keyboard deal, huh... Yesterday I ordered my brother-in-law a Corsair Vengeance K60, guess why? Ever look at your competitor? Well in the art world, they did say that great artist steal - because the K60 looks EXACTLY like your G110. Yeah he bought it too, and I can't wait to try it out. I am due to replace my two G110 and the K60 and K90 looks pretty good. Plus a Das Ultimate sounds like a pretty good fit for my office. If my brother-in-law Corsair's product is great then then I will switch to Corsair M60 mouse as well and roll out all Corsair product , wouldnt' that be great!
Thanks for all the great product you guys have produce but maybe you guys might want to go buy the K60 too. I'll write a review here next week on it.
PS. Your K400 multi-media combo was great, but feels very cheap and lacks a lot of features that your competitor addesso has. Hey at least microcenter was nice enough for me to return it after 2 weeks use. I guess the HTPC multimedia keyboard is just not any of your interest.

Yes they could raise the price. DiNivo Edge is $200. I mean 10 years ago, $20 was the budget for keyboard! And you must not have a Apple ipod then, who's MP3 are always 4x their competitor, due to that shiny case. "Ouu Shiny!"

I also joined the forum just for this topic. After using a Razer Blackwidow at my friends house I really want a mechanical. But I am so used to all my Logitech gear. I have been loyal to them for 14 years now due to the quality, layout, and support. Only straying once for a microsoft keyboard that felt good at the store but I only used for a month and pawned it off to my wife. Please listen to the masses. We want this product and you may lose me if Razer is where I have to go to increase my k/d ratio.

If they did make one I'd like the screen to possibly stay, but full color, albeit small. One with better programming than the current G series have, make it designed to be compatible with windows gadgets, so we can track CPU/GPU temp, time, stats, instant messages/ventrilo while gaming.
I'd also like the WASD keys to have raised edges on them if possible, something to make them easier to feel and find in case you move your hand to type or something. I also think game mode should change the color of the keys, make certain glows the colors you want em to. Example: W, A, S, D, R, F, T, B, and SPACE could all glow red while the rest glow blue, or not at all.
I know it's a long shot but I think having a set of removable side keys/G keys would be cool, make them like the G13. You could hook it into the left side or the right side or have it setting at a distance.
I'd also like a built in mic, something that was like the boom mic on the G930, when you put it at a certain position it mutes itself/turns off. This feature would be inexpensive to implement and it'd be a life saver for those who are having "bad mic days". If your mic is dead or broken, just switch over to the built in mic, no excuses to not be a team player.

I guess Logitech has yet to respond but honestly, some people seem to think that they don't want mechanical because the boards would be even more expensive. Ok. Then don't buy them.
If Logitech made:
Quality board such as a metal frame.
A Soft touch surface like the G15v1 had
Big rubber feat to cushion the keys bottoming out.
A selection of MX black, red, blue, or brown.
Large LCD like the G19 but wide.
Media keys with volume
Then I wouldn't mind spending a ton of money on it. I had my G15 for something like 6 years before I decided to swap it with a G510, but I get exhausted from typing on these dome keys and the resistance shakes my desk.
For someone like me, price is no concern if I'm getting what I want and need. I would have bought another keyboard by now from Ducky, Corsair, or Cooler Master, but the LCD is something I use actually a whole lot for my music, temp monitoring, GPU information, and keeping tabs on other system info whether I'm in game or in the middle of work and don't want to open a monitoring program.
Logitech, you need to get into this market now. It's quickly filling up. Make an ultimate board like you did with the G15, G510, and G19. I really want to buy from you.

I don't really see the need for all the features people are suggesting such as the LCD screens.
That being said some people like them, so two options would be good.
One a small, tenkeyless one focused around usability without all the extra features at a lower price.
Then a second one, with tenkeys, lcd screen and all the extra features at a higher price for those who want it.
