G15 modding

You know the new Logitech G15? The stylish fancy new model that looks like you could command a fleet of Imperial Star Destroyers with it? Well, I've wanted one for a while now, but could never get over the cruel switch to orange backlighting.

Old model:

New model (now with 200% more SEX!)

Terrible. I hate orange, anywhere it may show up. How could Logitech do this to me? I bought their OLD G15, in all its bright blue glory, how could they then release a super sexy version, with crappy backlighting?

Anyway, enough with my ranting. Check this out:

Some guy's soldered blue LED's in their place, and made the G15 sexy again! There's red and green mods too.

How difficult would this be?

Its not - Just fiddly

My original G15 has purple LEDs which I could only buy in 5mm round - Spent days filing them back to fit into the square holes

Theres a couple threads here in modding alone about the ol G15, plus several extensive tutes available online

(And I like the new orange - Makes me think of something Predator would use, like my new bow: http://www.realtree.com/assets/features/VectrixCamo_lg.jpg )

I've got a G11 atm, but I would buy that new G15 if it came with blue.

Why the hell would they make it orange? Why not green or red?

I'm just really anal about matching, my keyboard, monitor, mouse and case all match. (Black, silver, blue LEDs)

I've got a original G15, but I'm going to mod it to red, or perhaps emerald-green (10,000mcd green LEDs produce a real nice shade), to suit my new case mod's theme.

There's a video on YouTube somewhere, a guy's modded his G15 to have the keys act like a graphic equaliser display, bopping up and down with the music.

i loved the old g15, but i dont at all like this new one with the orange backlights. perhaps we should all email logitech suggesting them to change this orange and put it to another colour like the good ol blue or something.

perhaps u guys should change the LED's to bi-colour LEDs, and hook a switch up to swap the polarity to make the power and earths change to switch colours, as bi-colour ,(some of the bi-colours) because they have also got 3 legged/pinned bicolour LED's , try dick smiths or JAY CAR .

I suppose if all the LEDs have a common circuit you could do this.

But if any of them are ona seperated powered circuit, then you'd need mroe than one switch, and even worse, probably to try and squeeze wires through the keyboard.

Its a good idea but it'd depend on that.

Personally id just use UV LED's and go with it, lol.

I hate lighting of all kinds, and would deliberately disconnect all the LEDs.

I find lighting annoying too, but UV im in love with.

UV isnt lighting, its funky! and yes, the keyboard ciomes with a button to turn them on off or low.

I don't get what was wrong with the old G15. It had 12 more buttons?
How is chopping off 12 buttons an improvement?

well... lets be more exact here.

it had 18 buttons yes?

and 3 'G keys' i think they were, making 54 extra hotkeys.

WOW players loved it, everyone else had too many keys, and the keyboard was unnecicarily big because of it.

Not to mention the hinge on the screen was a weak point.

its an improvement, and having (is it 15?) additional hotkeys is enough for me.

Im still deciding between this and an apple alu keybnoard though.

Where can we find blue LEDs that would suit the G15 circuit?
Ive tried by visiting the local DSE and talked to jaycar with no luck in finding parts listed here http://www.forumdeluxx.de/forum/showthread.php?t=425141
Hopefully other spec LEDs might work?
http://www.ledsparkle.com/ had no luck either in identifying the parts in the above thread. heh
