Final Thoughts

Logitech has looked at this keyboard from all angles, and made some wise decisions, to make something so nice! The play on finishes is excellent, although, be fully aware that the matte surface shows dust, and the shiny bits are fingerprint magnets, but we love it anyway! Stepping away from the Romer-G switches was needed because if you want to be able to swap the keys, it is easier to find them made than to develop your own. Not that we dislike the choice. It is a TKL, which some may not appreciate, but it is perfect for us, and many who would like to have their mouse closer to the keyboard.

The lighting is some of the best out there, and that is without considering the options afforded to you via software. Software is another huge point to cover, as many eSports tournaments ban the use of it outright. Use of it to program the keyboard is sometimes acceptable, but it cannot be running while gaming. On the flip side, for the home gamer, you get a slew of options to sift through and apply at will. While limited to a single profile, we appreciate that it is kept on board, so if the need to travel arises, you are good to go!

While many of the slimmer and lower profile open-frame keyboards are aesthetically appealing and all of that, we tend to migrate to beefy solutions for a few reasons. We do not move the keyboard around much, so weight is of no concern to us. Resistance to chassis flex is another, and sometimes, when keyboards are flexible, they also resonate, which can numb the fingertips over prolonged use. The last reason is an aesthetic choice; as even being compact as a TKL, there is no reason it should be petite as well! With the PRO X keyboard, Logitech is delivering a professional grade product to take the demands of what we tend to put them through every day!

For a TKL, justifying the near $150 price may be a bit rough, but to help ease your mind, we promise you, there are not many widely available mechanical keyboards as exciting as this is. We have had a keyboard in the past with swappable switches, but the styling was all wrong for us. We have seen keyboards with beefy frames, detachable cables, can run with or without software, are made for traveling, and the abuses from it. In all aspects, we feel that not only did Logitech listen and put all of the information to good use, but they have also done so with one of the best keyboards we have ever had the pleasure of using.

RGB lighting and customization are what sell these days, but it is another thing to have it all included in something as bomb-proof as the PRO X mechanical keyboard. Honestly, to us, at $149.99, when and if you can find one, we would throw our own money at the Logitech store page to get one!

The Bottom Line

A touch expensive, yes, but it is so worth it! Everything about the PRO X keyboard is impressive, and that is before we pondering things like software, detachable cables, and swappable switches. Logitech hit the mark so well that our PRO X already found its forever home right here on my desk.
