Logitech G213 Keyboard Review
The G213 is a full-sized keyboard, but a bit on the chunky side. This is partly due to the removable armrest at the bottom of the keyboard. But even afterward, other board members might look a little bigger than they should. If you have a smaller table, you might want to look at something else. Despite its size, we found that the G213 is a lovely keyboard – even though the body made of plastic, which doesn’t feel luxurious. Having said this, Prodigy G213 does feel very sturdy, and of course, completes work.
The bottom is made of more plastic and can be fully adjusted thanks to the foot located on the back of the unit. Unfortunately, the USB cable cannot be removed, but braided. There is also no USB passthrough, which I’m sure will upset some prospective buyers. Each lock is equipped with a hybrid mechanical membrane lock switch, and each house has an RGB lighting knot in it. It also extends to media buttons, all of which find/pause and skip buttons, as well as volume controls and ‘game’ buttons. The stop button is oddly shaped, and the results look somewhat out of place.
The surprising feature implemented by Logitech here is the level of water resistance. I would not advise taking the keyboard into the bathtub, but the company says the unit has been tested to withstand liquid spills of up to 60ml. When you pay more than £ 50 for a keyboard, it’s fair to say that you expect a unit that excels in all game scenarios. The good news is, G213 always gives an impressive performance.
Therefore, the level of difference between the Prodigy G213 and anything that is equipped with a Cherry MX Red mechanical switch is not close to what I expected. The Mech-Dome switch is far superior to Microsoft Sidewinder. If you look at a full-sized mechanical keyboard with the same RGB lighting level, you will see more than double the cost of the G213, which is undoubtedly a matter of consideration.
Above all, the Productive G213’s extensive customization options make it stand out. Logitech Gaming Software is quite perfected, although it’s not as comprehensive as CUE Corsair, it’s easy to navigate and allows a lot of flexibility. You can re-assign buttons, create macros, and change RGB lighting to suit your taste. The lighting isn’t the brightest I’ve ever seen, but it’s up there with a much more expensive keyboard.
Logitech G213 Prodigy wasn’t a great gaming keyboard at the time. But for less than £ 60, you get excellent value for money, with a full RGB backlight, adjustment software, and a responsive Mech-Dome switch.
For those who switch mechanically, I recommend the Corsair K63 only in small quantities, for the best playing experience. However, when they learn that they will go down to ten more keys and lose the RGB backlight too, they will appreciate how brilliant the value of the Prodigy Logitech G213 really is.
The Bad > Not mechanical, A little chunky, No USB passthrough
The Good > Great value for money, RGB lighting looks great, Excellent for gaming
Conclusion > Recommended for gamers who need a budget gaming keyboard that offers spectacular value for money.
