Finally, Logitech, a well-known company by gamers for their high-quality peripherals, produced its first Pro G Mechanical keyboard. This is the first keyboard they made, designed and used by top pro E-sports players.
The packaging is really nicely done. A cardboard matte black box with a nice design. The specs are printed on the box in another type of black. It has a modern, subtle design, that can please everyone. It comes with a nylon braided cable to connect the keyboard to your pc. They really put effort into the appearance of this packaging, something that is always nice to see.
These switches are the best switches you can get for your mechanical keyboard at the moment. They are designed for a top performance, great durability and faster responsivity. They did this by having a short-throw actuation point of 1.5 mm, that made the mechanical keys 25% faster. When you use these keys, you feel that they focused on the design and that they have done a great job using them for this keyboard.
They said: “These are the stealth assassins of mechanical gaming keyboard switches”. I have to say that those keys are pretty quiet, if you compare them to other mechanical switches. But it isn’t miraculous that you don’t hear them anymore. So you will still bother your environment while typing.
Like I said in a previous article they looked at the whole picture and to improve the speed even more they focused on the Keystroke Signal Processing AKA KSP. This is actually not that noticeable, but it is really smooth (can’t be noticed by human senses because we talk here about milliseconds, but it will improve your gaming experience).
During the whole time I have used this keyboard., I never got one single error. This is due to the dual-contact redundant design to virtually eliminate the errors. These errors can be double clicks or unnoticed clicks etc... .
These keys are the top of the mechanical keys.
They focused on this feature because everybody and certainly gamers, who move their gear frequently, know this problem. Cables get damaged and due to a broken cable you need to buy a new keyboard/mouse. This is really annoying. To fix this, they made the cable detachable. This makes your keyboards life last way longer!
The kind of cable they use is a nylon braided cable. Nylon braided cables have a longer durability and are better for transport (better protection). It connects with a triple fork model micro USB. This makes sure there is a simple and reliable data connection.
Due to these features, Transporting becomes really easy and you are sure that you have a good connection when you are setup.
This keyboard is extremely stabile, this is not only because of the rubber feet beneath it, but also because they added a steel plate beneath it. This is done for being stable while having the greatest gaming experience as possible. Once setup you will not be able to move the keyboard just by using it. So mission accomplished.
For setting up you can adjust the angle between 0, 4 and 8 degrees. This is like every standard keyboard. But the feet on this keyboard are really strong. This also has to do with the durability and stability of the keyboard.
They have done a great job with the RGB-lightning. First of all you can choose between 16.8 million available colours. Of course this has to be nuanced, you have to adjust the colour and you are not accurate enough to go through all the colours. But they are there, so if you really want that specific colour, you can choose it.
You can adapt everything with the software. The software works great, easy to use and understand. And very effective. You can let your 5 year old child, experiment with this and even they are going to understand how it works.
If you buy this keyboard it comes with more than 300 different lighting profiles for all different games. All the well-known games are in this package, you just have to select it.
Like I said above, Logitech made sure with their software platform that you can use all the keyboards capabilities and that the user can adapt his keyboard very easily to his own wishes. The mode to change colours is really handy and easy to use. But there is more software.
Logitech added a game mode, which is customizable. This game mode is well known by companies that make keyboards. For people who don’t know this mode, this mode disables keys that you normally don’t press during games, so you won’t go out of the game pressing your windows button or anything else.
While using this keyboard you get a really nice comfortable feeling. Your fingers fit on the keys and you don’t have to put in a lot of effort to press them. Just a nice keyboard to use.
The price for this keyboard is around 120 euros. This is not cheap but it is really acceptable for what you get. If you look around for other keyboards with the same specs you will have to pay the same or even more.
This keyboard is just great. It has all the things it should have, it is great in use. The software is easy to handle and effective. It does everything you hope it does. Of course it is not cheap, but that is something you can’t expect. Logitech and the pro E-sport players who made this keyboard did a great job. Therefore I would like to give the Logitech PRO G keyboard the golden award.
