Logitech is back with an improved pro gaming keyboard in the G Pro X TKL Lightspeed. Ditching the cables in favor of its highly praised Lightspeed wireless technology, the new gaming keyboard is mostly everything that was loved about the first, except with wireless connectivity and a few other enhancements for the higher $199.99 price tag (the wired model is $149.99).
It loses the ability for hot-swappable switches. But Logitech does offer three switch options with this new board – the Linear GX Red switches, Tactile GX Brown switches, and Clicky GX Blue switches. For the wireless connectivity, you can set it up to connect to your PC using the included Lightspeed USB adapter or use Bluetooth. You may get more battery life with Bluetooth. So that might be preferred for everyday use. Then you can switch over to Lightspeed and its low-latency connection when it’s game time.
Either way Logitech says the keyboard can last for up to 50 hours. And that’s going to be plenty for most users out there.
Logitech designed the Pro X TKL Lightspeed in collaboration with pro players
As with its other Pro X devices, Logitech worked directly with pro players on this new keyboard. What that means for non-pro players is that you can rest assured you’re getting a good quality gaming keyboard. Because pro players use and actually like it.
Whether it’s the programmable keys or the basically unmatched Lightspeed wireless technology, this is a keyboard that can perform well. The Lightspeed wireless in particular is one of my personal favorite features. And it’s why Logitech’s G915 TKL has been on our Best Gaming Keyboards list for so long. Logitech just makes it so easy to swap between the Lightspeed connection and Bluetooth just by pressing the dedicated buttons. And this can be invaluable if you use the keyboard with more than one device.
Additionally, Logitech offers the new Pro X TKL Lightspeed in three different colors. Black, White, and the new Pink option. You’ll also find a media roller and other dedicated media keys lined up across the top. Just like on the G915 TKL and the G715. All-in-all the new keyboard is likely to be one of Logitech’s best to date. To top things all off, Logitech even packs it with a really high-quality and durable travel case.
