After 13 years, I still don't feel the need of replacing this keyboard.
Not only does everything still work ( display, background lights, usb hub, function keys, etc... ) but after 13 years this keyboard is still supported by Logitech.
Modern software like GPU-Z, CPU-Z, MSI Afterburner still support this display.

I'm just amazed by a peace of hardware that still works ans still gets software updates after 13 years.

This is how I configured mine:

Using a G15v2 I purchased used off of eBay around 2009 iirc. Still works good but has a lot of visible wear and tear. LCD still works perfectly though!

My friend got one of those for gaming in his college years on my recomendation.

Last I saw it, his dad had inherited it, and was trying to figure out the display, looking confused. Still worked though. Good stuff. :)

Never could afford the g15, always wanted it, but I did have an MX510 (less popular than mx518, just as good), and still use my G5 v1 as my daily driver. Better than any cheap mouse I have to use. Nearly cried when it seemed to stop working one day.

I still have my G15, but it got replaced when I got a G510s. I held out on replacing the G510 for a very very long time because I thought I would miss the LCD. But then I got sent a mechanical keyboard for free and started using it. I realized I wouldn't really miss the screen, and it was really just a novelty, and I absolutely loved the way mechanical keyboards felt while typing. So now both my G15 and G510s sit in the closet on a shelf collection dust.

Yours is with 18 macro keys, I've got the one with shy 6, but believe me I loved it very much... countless and various liquid spill accidents during the years destroyed the rubber so bad it has crumbled to dust at some parts. Sadly there was/is lack of decent alternatives and then I wanted mechanic at the first place so to replace the lcd display I bought a cheap android that gave me also some control over things besides the regular feedback, even wireless. But still sometimes I think I should get a rubber dome replacement for the G15 because it's definitely a nice piece of hardware. ^^

I believe one of my mates had one back in 2007, probably still does, but he never managed to get the display to work, either it was damaged internally, or didn't have any drivers for it.

yes... or my wife has it now, i got a good deal on a used G19 1 year ago and is using that,
The Backlight in the keys is has died in one side and is really dimm in the other, so im going to take it apart and change the LED but that is all the rest works like it was new :)

If you want a Grate program for the Display i have been using barloggg's http://www.g15-applets.de/barlogggs-g15g19-applet-ver-60--bga-v-7-t4799-30.html
It can combine alot of data on one screen.
