Logitech G413 Gaming Keyboard Review
Compared to most gaming keyboards or even traditional keyboards, the Logitech G413 might look a little bare. Without conventional plastic containers, you can see the keyboard base plate that underlies all the glory.
The lack of an external shell does not affect the stiffness of Logitech G413 Carbon. You will be confused if you try to bend or even find a weak spot on this keyboard, thanks to the solid aluminum-magnesium alloy plate. Even the plastic bottom of the Logitech G413 carbon feels hard. Thanks to a series of diagonally printed lines, which add to its stiffness while lifting it slightly above the base plastic base.
Unfortunately, Logitech’s minimalist philosophy for the G413 greatly influences its feature set.
Unlike all other Logitech keyboards, this keyboard does not include special media keys. Of course, the user presses the function key to switch to the shortcut attached to the F-key. But it seems strange omission when available at an even lower price, $ 69 (£ 59, AU $ 99) G213 Prodigy Gaming keyboard.
The Bad > No dedicated media buttons, Slow USB 2.0 pass-through
The Good > Sturdy build quality, Sophisticated, refined design, Full-on mechanical switches
Conclusion > One of the best and most inexpensive gaming keyboards on the market. But, in some little ways, it fails to meet the high standart Logitech has set for itself.
