Logitech Releases Mechanical G Pro RGB Keyboard With Romer-G Switches
Logitech has announced and released the G Pro mechanical keyboard in its G-line of gaming products. Logitech isn’t using the popular Cherry MX switches that are often used in mechanical keyboards, but opts for its own Romer-G switches instead. The G Pro keyboard features RGB lighting and also uses a detachable USB cable.
The G Pro is a tenkeyless (TKL) keyboard and is more compact to the omission of the numerical keyboard. Logitech mentions that the G Pro would be a perfect fit for quick and easy setup at e-sports events. The mechanical keyboard offers 26-key rollover. You can choose between 16 million different RGB colors in the Logitech Gaming Software suite, which also offers support for over 300 custom lighting profiles. The keyboard itself also features so called ‘lighting hints’ to adjust the RGB settings on the fly.
The Romer-G switches that are being made by Logitech themselves have an activation point of 1.5 mm and a force of 45 grams or 44 centinewton is needed to record a keystroke. The switches have been rated for over seventy million keystrokes.
The detachable cable has a length of 5.9 feet and is braided for extra protection. The micro-USB cable also features support clamps for some added durability. The rubber feet at the bottom of the Logitech Pro G can be placed at an angle of 0, 4 or 8 degrees.
The Logitech Pro G mechanical keyboard will be made available later this month for a recommended retail price of $129.
