Logitech G Pro X Mechanical Keyboard Review
At a glance, Logitech’s G and G Pro series PC accessories have completely shaken the competitive gaming world:
The best of this line-up is the Logitech G Pro X Mechanical Keyboard. An RGB-lit keyboard built specifically for hardcore and heavy-handed typers.
It is just short of $130 and has a 4.4-star rating from over 1.3k reviews. Find out why it is turning heads below:
The Logitech G Pro X keyboard comes with replaceable and customizable switches that introduce a whole new level of customization and keyboard repairability (is that even a word?).
While this reason alone isn’t enough to run out and buy a G Pro X, if you are on the lookout for a new keyboard, and take pride in your PC gaming, this freedom to customize makes this keyword a beast of an option.
Swapping Keys Becomes Easy
Logitech is pretty much geared towards customers’ ease of use. So everything you need is in the box. Unlike some cellular phone companies that don’t even pack a socket for charging.
In the box, you get a keycap puller with the keyboard and individual switch sets. With it, you can remove any keytop, and even remove the switch underneath the keycap.
Replacing and customizing any keyboard can feel a bit finicky at first, but after a few replacements, you will feel confident:
In fact, the whole keyboard will take about an hour to get used to and customize, especially as you’ll be finding the right customizations across its 87 keys.
As it’s geared specifically towards competitive gaming, the performance is second to none. Here are the key metrics of the Logitech G Pro X keyboard;
- Removable USB cable (5.9 feet)
- User-replaceable individual switches
- 1ms report rate
- Key-travel: 3.7mm (Blue+Brown), 4mm (Red)
- Actuation force: 50g (Blue+Brown+Red)
Easy To Carry
Logitech Pro is a typical competitive keyboard. It’s compact, easy to carry, and comfortable to type on. It weighs 1.98 lbs, making it perfect for traveling to events, offices, or on tight desks.
The Pro X should be one of your top choices when you’re shopping for a tenkeyless model (tenkeyless models aren’t full-size keyboards and lack the number pad).

G Hub for Pro X
The keyboard comes with G Hub software to map and customize the key’s functionality. When you mix G Hub with customizable keycaps, it takes the RGB and mechanical aesthetics to another level:

- Feels great to game on
- Great typing experience
- Paint contrast is the same as the previous generation
- No volume control built-in
- Onboard memory stores only one profile
If you are a serious gamer, you need customization and mechanical keys. The combination might only give you a fraction of an edge, but that matters.
Additionally, if you are a writer, the feel of a mechanical keyboard with keys that have significant travel and feedback makes a huge difference.
