Logitech G PRO X Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Much like the box, the keyboard also mixes shiny and matte surfaces. Case and point, this left side of the keyboard. The flat side we are staring at is shiny black plastic, with the matte keycaps above it. Under the side is the lower section of the frame, where there is a gentle curve added before dropping to the lowest part, which enables the PRO X to leave room for fingers when it comes time to move or readjust it.
At first glance, this image may appear out of focus, as the primary legends are touch to see. However, the painted on, shift, or secondary function legends are much easier to see since they are painted onto them. We like the thick edges of the exposed key layout of this TKL, and again, like the packaging, the keyboard is also sleek, simplistic, and to the point.
Off towards the right end of the keyboard, we find a pair of LED indicator lights, which are backlit with a pale blue, for both the caps and scroll locks, which also match the G logo found at the left end.
While you can use software to program all of the F-keys, essentially making them G-keys, they do offer some secondary functionality as well. Starting at the F9 key, we find the play/pause button for multimedia support. F10 is the stop button, F11 goes back one track per press, and F12 moves forward one track at a time.
Moving to the command keys to finish out the multimedia support, we find the volume controls. The print screen button, while holding the function key, will mute the volume. The scroll lock and pause buttons offer a way to lower and raise the volume, respectively.
Just above the last image, we see two more buttons on the top-right corner of the frame. On the left is the game lockout button, which disables keys of your choosing. The button to the right deals with the illumination, where a single press will turn them all off or on.
For the most part, the view of the right edge is much like what we saw on the left. This time, we do get the PRO moniker painted on the side, and we have extended the larger of the two feet options to show the ergonomic positioning of the keycaps when they are used.
The back edge of the keyboard is also shiny, which matches the front edge as well. However, at the back, right smack in the middle is the jack to make the cable connection from the PRO X to the PC.
Under the PRO X, we see the product sticker, centered, but along the back edge. Five square feet support the frame, and the plastic has been molded with angled lines, mostly for style, but also rigidity.
If you would like half of the height adjustment than many keyboards provide, Logitech opted for a dual foot system. We have extended the smaller of the two, and see that it has a rubber insert, which will grab onto the desk.
For average height addition to the back edge, you extend the larger foot, which encapsulates the smaller one when used. Again, we find the rubber insert, so that you still find the keyboard stays in one place when used.
