Packaging, Accessories, and Documentation
Logitech packaging has always tended to have a clean look to it, and with the PRO X keyboard packaging, it is even straighter forward and simple. With the name of the keyboard ghosted into the left edge of the panel, it left a ton of room for the near life-size image of the keyboard in the middle. At the top is "PRO" in blue metallic lettering and the Logitech G name at the bottom in the same color. At the top-right of all versions, you will see the notification as to which switches are onboard.
On the bottom edge, if judging by the previous image, we find the name of the keyboard, the types of switches used, a list of contents, requirements, and terms of the warranty, which are then repeated five times. On the other end of the panel are the Logitech company information and the sticker with the model and serial numbers on it.
The right side panel of the packaging tells us that Logitech G is the choice of pro gamers and eSports leagues around the world, and shows that they sponsor Team SoloMid, G2 Esports, Astralis, Origen, and The Chiefs Esports Club.
The top edge of the box is more of the matte black cardboard, and Logitech decided to offer the company name in the same metallic blue lettering as on the rest of the box.
The last of the side panels offers a list of specifications, and the list offers quite a bit about the product in such a short column of text. Along with the specs being repeated to cover the globe, the bit at the bottom, "one purpose; play to win," is also repeated.
The back of the box offers a list of specifications and features but done so in a way that they are ghosted using shiny and matte cardboard to spell them out. Right in the middle of it all, in blue and white letters, standing out against the backdrop is the phrase play to win!
What we have been covering is all on a thin outer sleeve that surrounds this plain cardboard inner box, which is the first line of protection. We find that the keyboard inside is held tightly by the cardboard box to keep it in place, and covering it with a clear plastic envelope keeps abrasions at bay. For other goodies, the keyboard needs to be removed, and you will find them underneath.
The detachable cable is what we saw first, and we wee it has a lot going for it. At the keyboard end, there is the winged connector, which helps eliminate cable stress, as well as making it easier to connect. The 1.8-meters of cable is sleeved with a tightly braided cloth, it bound with a Velcro strap, and passes through a ferrite choke before it terminated in a connector with a keyboard on one side, and the Logitech G logo on the other, as we see on the winged connector.
We were also sent an insert showing off the new gear Logitech is making along with all of the social media links, a large sticker of the Logitech G logo, as well as a switch and keycap puller tool. There is a guide that shows how to connect the keyboard and where to go for software. On the reverse of the top page, images are showing how to remove the keycaps and switches, making a note to tell you to disconnect the keyboard while doing so. There is also a bit about safety and compliance, covering anything that may be seen as an issue with usage or disposal.
