    Great "Non-Gamer" Mechanical Keyboard

    Posted
    Kabeuse

    This is an upgrade from the stock dome switch chiclet keyboard that came with my desktop PC. Mechanical keyboards are usually marketed as gaming keyboards and usually look the part. I consider myself a casual gamer and so I have no use for a keyboard with RGB backlighting or a large number of other features. This keyboard uses Logitech’s own Romer-G switches. I do not have any experience with the Cherry MX family of switches so I cannot compare the Romer-G switches to them. In my opinion, the Romer-Gs give the proper mechanical feel without being obnoxiously loud. They have just enough click and spring resonance to remind the user that this is indeed a mechanical keyboard. The Romer-G switches have a noticeable tactile bump so there is no need to bottom out the keys. The silver backplate of this keyboard looks great with my monitor and desktop tower which are both silver and/or have silver accents. The build quality is very solid. This keyboard is heavy and will not slide around on the desk. The look is classy enough to stand out but not so much that it looks like a typical gaming keyboard. It does have white backlighting which can be customized somewhat with the Logitech Gaming Software. Also, the USB passthrough is a nice touch for a keyboard in this price point provided an open USB port on your computer is available. Finally, I’ll probably never use the included replicable gaming keycaps but it is thoughtful of Logitech to include them. One downside, which others have commented, is that Num Lock and Scroll Lock do not have their own indicator lights on the keyboard. Caps Lock and the gaming mode G key have indicators. It’s only a minor gripe for me.

    In summary, I'm a convert from ergonomic quiet keyboards to this sweet aestheticly beautiful fast keyboard. If coming from a non mechanical keyboard, your gaming WILL IMPROVE period. I'm an avid gamer and a business professional, I've been using a Ergonomic chiclet quiet keyboard for the last couple of years, I love it, but was told mechanical keyboards are king for gaming ... as a business professional I've held off on getting a gaming keyboard in the past as I didn't want something loud and over the top looking sitting on my desk and I'm very used to ergonomic keyboards, in comes this keyboard ... It's professional looking, backlit, not too loud and mechanical, just not ergonomic, well I can tell you although I do prefer an ergonomic keyboard for work, for gaming, this keyboard BLOWS away any past keyboards I've tried. It's fast, like more than 10 kpm faster on the 10 key pad then my old chiclet. I've also noticed a HUGE difference in key coordination and latency, with my old keyboards, being wireless, I never noticed I had an issues with latency with fast movement and using skillshots in games, however in just a simple mini game in smite, Apollo's Racer Rumble, I NEVER missed my drifts using the space, W, A and D keys in tandem, I thought it was bad code or network latency occasionally not initiating a drift, however I don't have that issue with this keyboard, probably since its wired or the fact I can press multiple more keys at the same time then my previous keyboard. Thanks Logitech, for another product I LOVE.

    Consistent quality needs work

    Ordered via Website and picked up at store. The box was cut at the edge by inventory staff when unpacking, but since it's just the outside, I ignored it. After plugging it in, I noticed that the light for F12 was different than those of the rest of the keyboard. While 99+% of the keys had a blueish-tinted LED, the F12 key had a slightly darker straight white (the kind I get from my G610). Instead of spending the rest of the time being bothered by that, I brought it back for an exchange. The newer keyboard came in a box that was in even worse shape. One of the edges is almost completely cut, exposing the inner black box. Again, it's just the outside box, right? The keyboard itself is fine this time. Consistent lighting. BUT the left shift key makes a different sound when pressed than the rest of the keys. I can repeat this again. But the customer support guy and I will be sick of each other, and gas isn't free. I'll live with it. Maybe plucking it out and reinserting it will fix it. Regardless, I'm sure there are some perfectly crafted/manufactured keyboards out there for this model. I just haven't had the luck. And just because I am partial to the Silver model, I'm confined to BestBuy (as opposed to getting it online like I did for my G610, from that store you're thinking about).

    Excellent Solid keyboard

    Amazing keyboard that I feels as good if not better than my former Corsair K70. While it is missing the dedicated media keys from the K70 I don't find it that hard to press the Fn key to get the same functions. The top aluminum frame provides a nice sturdiness and a less plasticy feel than other keyboards at this price. The star of the board are the Romer G switches. In my own opinion they feel like a mix between cherry reds and browns with an almost ever slight feel of membrane which to say isn't bad. In fact the greatest things I love about the Romer G switches is that there is a slight bump with each key press unlike cherry reds so i have noticed that i make less typing errors. The actuation point of the Romer G's feels quicker than cherry reds so I am noticing that a lot of my actions are happening ever so slightly quicker. The only con i could say that this keyboard has is flex in the corners of the board. As well as the extendable feel flex a fair amount if you type pretty hard. Overall I feel that if you are new to mechanical keyboards to a vet this is a solid mech keyboard worth your money.

    This is a great choice for anyone looking for a first mechanical keyboard that's interested more in the tactile feedback / typing experience than the rainbow light shows. I've literally never NOT loved anything I've bought from Logitech, and this is no exception; solid, decisive actuation, a really nice heft and overall feeling of quality manufacturing - and at a very reasonable price. The backlighting is beautifully clean and consistent, USB pass-through is a nice addition, and the risers are stable and give just the right amount of lift. My only caveat (and I know this is common with backlit keys) is the caps lock light being located on the top RH corner as opposed to on the key itself - but I'll probably have already adjusted to that by the time most of you read this, though :) TL;DR: Awesome entry-level keyboard with very respectable features, from a consistently awesome company, at a very affordable price.

    Great Officer/Gaming Keyboard

    To start off this keyboard was really packaged nice. When I first used it, it took a while to get used to it. But after a while, I got used to it and it's very nice. The keyboard came with the main keys you would use for gaming if you're buying this keyboard for that reason. The keyboard doesn't really sound the best (In my opinion I like the sound of Razer), but then again it is a different company. I think this keyboard is really nice for the office, but also really nice for gaming. The keyboard is loud and it sounds just like a plastic key bottoming out, but it is decent. I really like how they added a USB pass-through port, which made it easier for me to connect my mouse because the mouse's wire wasn't long enough to connect to the actual computer. Overall, the keyboard was definitely worth the $90. I think its really nice for a student who has a lot of school work but also likes to game.

    I have been using a Microsoft Sidewinder keyboard for the last 3-4 years, and it was getting a little crusty. I bought this one when it was on sale and I found a good price match. I really like the way the keyboard looks. The silver just pops. In addition, I like the way that the keys feel. It's a bit clicky (it is mechanical) but not overly loud. On top of that, the form factor is great. It's really minimalistic. I also appreciate that it has a full 9 key on the side. I have a background in accounting and data analytics, so having the 9 key is absolutely vital to my peace of mind. If you forced me to come up with with a complaint about this keyboard, it would be the lack of a dedicated mute button, and the lack of a dedicated calculator button. Obviously, these aren't deal breakers for me (note that I still gave it 5 stars), and that you still have the option to mute with the FN key, but I especially wish for a calculator button.

    It really is a great keyboard, I don't play anything that can use macros so the lack of macro buttons isn't a negative to me, not being able to change the color of the key back light could also be considered a negative but if you feel the need for that then there are plenty of more expensive boards that you can get that with. I chose this because of price > mechanical keys > and a combination of manufactures rep and the beauty in simplicity this board has, it's not some large gaudy gaming board. It also matches my mouse lol

    I absolutely loved this keyboard from it's first use to typing this review, but something unfortunate happened recently during the first real cleaning it has needed. I went to pop the keys off using the provided tool, but upon popping the keys off realized that 3 of the 4 pegs broke on one of my keys. I swapped it out for the backup it came with, and another key also broke. This was the first time they were removed and they just broke like it was nothing. Feelsbad. I can't even use the replacement key for the second broken key until I figure out a way to remove the stuck pegs from inside the little holes. Would have recommended this until this incident.

    This was my first venture into mechanical keyboards. I trust Logitech, I use their wireless trackball mouse (and have been for around 7 years), and it works great - so I'm happy with their quality. This keyboard blew me away. I didn't understand why mechanicals are such a "thing" - now I do. The tactile feel of these keys just feel... amazing. They don't require a lot of force, but MAN does that mechanical 'click' just give me butterflies. You can't beat the price for a quality keyboard. Also the keys are raised just above the sleek metal base, it makes it SUPER easy to clean.

    It's a good/average keyboard. Great for people new to mechanical keyboards and don't like to customize or have no real preference. It has a USB pass through, so it takes up 2 USB's in the back (1 for the keyboard, and 1 for the extra USB on the keyboard itself for other devices). For it's price, it's definitely a great keyboard. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a low profile full sized keyboard, and like the feel of cherry MX brown switches (it uses the Romer-G switches). Wished it had more lighthing colors, dip switches, and aftermarket keycap support. (if you lose/break a keycap, you have to send it back to Logitech as your only option)

    I came from a Razer Chroma X, wanted something a little more quiet; even went as far as adding O-rings to dampen the sound. I wanted to try something logitech, since i didn't want 2 background apps running and i love my logitech mouse. The keyboard has all the features of its competitors at a low price point. Mechanical keys, Media Keys, USB pass through, adjustable rubber feet that tilt, nice aluminium face doesn't catch grime or show dirt like most keyboards, its backlit. My only gripe with the keyboard is: there isn't a num lock indication light but a light for game lock instead, kinda wish it were vice versa... of course it has Cap lock indication. Other than that this keyboard is perfect at this price point.

    My previous keyboard was a Logitech G110 gaming keyboard. After that I was looking for something sleeker and more minimalist. I didn't really need all the macro keys that the G110 offered so I got this one. It has all your standard keys on it and the F1 keys are programmable. You can also set the Logitech program to recognize game profiles so that your programmable keys will automatically be set up whenever you launch the game. You can also disable keys you don't want activating on the keyboard as well (caps, windows, menu) This might be more software than hardware, but it would be nice if the caps, windows, fn, and menu buttons could all be programmed as well.

    The build quality of the Logitech G413 is great. The aluminum finish is solid, the keystrokes feel nice without being loud and the backlighting is simple with adjustable brightness levels. It doesn't have many frills, like RGB lighting and customizable hotkeys, just a basic layout, solid switches, simple white backlighting and integrated USB ports. The design also allows for easy cleaning with just compressed air. I'm considering replacing all of my keyboards with this model!

    I've always been a fan of Logitech keyboards. This one is wonderful. I've wanted a mechanical keyboard at work for a long time. However, due to the nature of my quiet work environment I've held off since mechanical keyboard "clacky" noises can be disruptive. This keyboard has that great feel and sound of a mechanical keyboard without being as loud as some others. It's also fairly compact so it doesn't take up a lot of room on the desk which I like. My only wish would be better options in the settings for the lighting features. I wish there was a way to have the lights be off when the computer is locked.

    Fantastic Keyboard

    I use a DAS mechanical keyboard at work which prompted me to get a mechanical keyboard for home. While the DAS is a fantastic keyboard, I like the feel to the logitech Romer G switches better than the cherry mx blues on the DAS. This keyboard also feels very sturdy and well built. There is almost no key wiggle compared to many other keyboards I have used. It genuinely makes me want to type more even when I don't have to. Hence the review =) For the price......Buy it. You get the support and software from logitech. Worth it.

    Great, minimalistic keyboard that does excellently in everything that I need it to. I do a lot of gaming and the keys feel great and responsive. However, I am also a student and this keyboard is comfortable and fast to type on. In fact, the only reason that I am writing this review is to give me an excuse to use my new keyboard. The Romer-G keys are awesome. They don't have the audible click of a cherry MX-blue (don't get me wrong, they are plenty loud, just not annoyingly so) and allow you to type quickly and comfortably.

    Considering many mechanical keyboards go for easily more than 100 dollars, this is a great option. I wish it had more than just red backlighting (RGB would be great), but the lighting options and dimming are great regardless. The keyboard has a great feel, a nice, subtle clacky sound, and a moderately tactile cross-over (when the key "presses"). The keyboard has a reassuring heft to it, and the cold metal frame is a nice touch. I would recommend this keyboard for gaming or for everyday use, especially for the price.

    Fantastic First Mechanical Keyboard

    I am pretty newb on all things keyboards because I don't need a lot from them. I bought this strictly for gaming as I built my first PC and I couldn't be happier with the performance. This is going to last a very long time and further cements my trust in Logitech of making a solid product. While it's heavy, I love that because it doesn't move when I'm freaking out with my hands while getting killed in FPS. But seriously, highly consider buying this if you're looking for a sleek and solid solution to your keyboard needs.

    This is my second mechanical keyboard that I have purchased. The other one was still working great, but had the full on click of most of the mechanical keyboards and were times when I just wanted something quieter. The weight and build quality of the Logitech feels top notch and the key feel and quieter keypress is exactly what I was looking for. Mac users looking for a second Command Key on the right of the spacebar, look into USB Overdrive and you can reassign the contextual menu button to act as a second Command key.
