Review Logitech G Pro Keyboard
G Pro seems like what would happen if Logitech took one of Orion’s slim keyboards and only cut numpad with a kind of high-tech paper cutter. It has a full selection of buttons (minus numpad), next to the button that controls lighting and that activates Game Mode. If you are not familiar with Game Mode, it prevents you from clicking buttons like Alt-Tab or the Windows key.
That’s most of what can be said about the appearance of the keyboard. It’s small, attractive, and slim. Instead of using discrete media controls, you can use the Fn key and the top row of the Function key. While we usually prefer separate controls, they are not needed on tournament-focused devices.
G Pro is also equipped with a removable micro-USB cable, with hooks on both sides to fit securely. That is good for traveling, but the Chroma Razer BlackWidow tenkeyless comes with a carrying bag, placing the G Pro slightly behind the curve. You will want to hold on to the box or invest in a separate case.
The keyboard uses the company’s ubiquitous Romer-G mechanical switches. If you’ve never tried it, it feels like Cherry MX Browns: tactile and fairly calm. But Cherries are the standard to overcome, Romer-Gs should be faster, more responsive and more durable, so you can do much more critical. Taken based on their own abilities, they are quite comfortable.
Logitech G Pro runs on Logitech Gaming Software, which, as usual, is very good. You can program F1 to F12 keys, and adjust backlighting and track your statistics (fingers behavior).
Since tournament players are usually not permitted to program keys or run proprietary software, there is only one feature here that really needs to be mentioned. There is one onboard profile for the G Pro keyboard, as Logitech often offers to mice. This profile saves one lighting profile, which means that you can connect the keyboard to any computer and maintain whatever key color you want to program.
We put G Pro through the steps, with e-sports and narrative-driven titles, and it worked well in both cases. We have no trouble sliding around the battlefield as Mercy on Overwatch or ordering Jaina Proudmoore to wrap enemies in ice on Heroes of the Storm. Furthermore, the keyboard was reliable and responsive when I traveled through the world of Eorzea in Final Fantasy XIV or lowered the bandit camp in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
If you need a small mechanical keyboard that is suitable for the tournament scene and you don’t want to sacrifice comfort or performance, Logitech G Pro is what you should get. But if you need something bigger – or cheaper – for everyday use, you might want to use something like Logitech G810 Orion or Corsair Strafe.
Of course, $ 130 is a lot to ask for a tenkeyless model, so high prices are worth considering before taking risks. Contrarily, Logitech knows how to make a quality keyboard, and G Pro is no exception.
The Bad > High price, and No carrying case
The Good > Small and sleek, No extraneous buttons, and Detachable cord
Conclusion > Recommended for E-sport gamer with high budget.
