We just love it when a company gives more value to consumers without expecting them to fork out a single cent (Apple, are you listening?). The secondary panels of the Logitech gaming keyboards, the G15 and G19 , are now Windows SideShow-enabled.

All you need to do is to download the latest firmware to get this feature gratis. Windows SideShow panels first appeared as external secondary displays on the Asus W5fe and LG R200-Q , though since then no new laptop models have SideShow-enabled LCDs.

Windows SideShow is a feature in Vista that lets an auxiliary panel display information, such as contacts, e-mails, appointments, and images on the hard disk. The cool thing is that the data is available even when the PC is turned off, though the catch is that you need to sync the data to the SideShow panel beforehand. The firmware is already available for download at Logitech's support Web site.
