PAX East 2017: Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Unveiled
At Pax East 2017, Logitech showcased their most recent product release, designed for the traveling PC gamer. The Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a 10-keyless full RGB keyboard with a detachable cable. Designed with a similar silhouette to their G810 Orion Spectrum and G213 RGB keyboards, the Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard uses Logitech’s own Roamer-G key switches, sporting durability of 70 million key presses and an actuation distance of 1.5mm. Let’s take a dip into the first product by Logitech to carry the name “Pro”.
This 10-keyless keyboard’s detachable cable is braided and reduces the chances of the damage during travel. It’s pretty handy to be able to stow away the cable safely instead of wrapping it around the keyboard itself, otherwise putting strain at the base where the cable meets the keyboard. When connected, the cable head’s 3-prong design allows for a strong and secure hold in the keyboard. The Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard also sports a steel back plate for stability during those more heated gaming sessions.
As you would expect of a product caring the name “Pro”, The Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is also powered by the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). With the LGS, you can program any of the keyboard’s keys to execute macros or pretty much perform action you like. Beyond that, you have full control of each individual key’s LED lighting, with 16.8 million color choices. With the latest version of LGS, you’re also able to create unique LED animations of your own, allowing you to set colors, tweak animation timings, and move those animations along using a time-line interface. If you always wanted to go beyond the animations that most gaming keyboards come packaged with, the door is now open to you with LGS and the Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard.
The Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard sports the now Logitech standard Windows key disabler to protect your game sessions from interrupts caused by the accidental pressing of the Windows key. For times when you’re using the keyboard on a PC without the LGS, there’s also onboard controls for making basic changes to the LEDs as well as onboard memory for loading up saved customization profiles.
Shipping this month, the Logitech G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard runs for $129.99. Do check it out for yourself here…
