Wowww.....It's too good for playing games. I have been using Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard k400r for last 3 years. It's also working great but i am game lover boy so i needed that keyboard which specially designed for gamers. Finally i got it from this forum. The Logitech G15 has superb features like High-visibility GamePanel LCD, Illuminated characters, Six programmable G-keys, Intelligent cable management, Instant media access, 104 standard keys + 29 function keys, USB 2.0 keyboard. Thanks for share this product. :D

USB 3.0 offers little advantages for keyboards, mice, and game controllers. Actually if you look at the specifications it can be a crippling disadvantage when it comes to data propagation in cable length.
USB 1.0/2.0 specs say no longer than 16ft, I have seen a range of 18ft to 24ft before the device is no longer recognized by the USB controller, and data transfers start to significantly drop around the 6-8ft range.
USB 3.0 specs say no longer than 9ft for data propagation, my USB 3.0 ports are in the rear panel so I have a 6ft extension cable to make it easier to access them. I can use a 3.0 memory stick just fine, but when I hook my HDD docking station (which is USB 3.0) up to the extension cable (its cable is 3ft, for a total of 9ft of cable) the controller fails to recognize the device. It would not be so bad if all I did was loose data transfer rates, but complete failure of data propagation is very bad.
In short USB 3.0 has a significantly shorter cable-length before data propagation breaks down, and then fails.

USB 3.0 stuff has significantly come down in price over the past two years, I think I gave around $10-15USD for the 6ft extension cable two years ago, now it is like $4-8USD for them. So I will have to get some shorter extensions later on. I have also seen some 10ft and 15ft USB 3.0 cables, and allot of bad reviews on them saying they don’t work or only good for USB 2.0 (or less) devices.
I got the 6ft extensions while being blissfully ignorant to the new specifications of USB 3.0. Honestly at the time I thought max cable length would have been the same if not doubled, I did not expect it to be halved.
