Logitech’s affordable new low-profile keyboard also fits Cherry MX-style keycaps

1 Mins read

Logitech has announced a new low-profile gaming keyboard, the G515 Lightspeed TKL Wireless, featuring upgraded low-profile switches that are now compatible with Cherry MX-style keycaps, improving the keyboard’s customizability.

The G515 is a welcome upgrade to Logitech’s G915 Lightspeed Wireless keyboard, which debuted in 2019. The new G515 features a TKL (tenkeyless) design that’s similar to the smaller Logitech G915 TKL update from 2020; this one completely eliminates not only the G915’s number pad but also the wide volume wheel that sat above it.

Saying goodbye to that physical volume wheel leaves the G515 keyboard, which should be available today, with a $139 price tag that’s significantly cheaper than both the $249.99 G915 and the smaller $229.99 G915 TKL. That’s not quite as cheap as the $104 Keychron K1 Max QMK wireless low-profile keyboard, which offers a lot of similar functionality, but for those looking for an even more affordable point of entry, a wired-only version of the new G515 is also en route and expected to sell for $99 when it’s available later this year.

The new G515 continues to use the company’s low-profile GL mechanical switches that, when they debuted on the G915 almost five years ago, were found to be tweaked versions of Kailh’s Choc V1 low-profile switches, which made them difficult to customize and swap in alternate keycaps.
