Log­itech G Pro Tenkey­less

Ev­ery­thing you need, noth­ing more.

APC Australia - - Super Guide » Gaming Keyboards -

Log­itech’s G Pro line packs all the ba­sic gam­ing fea­tures with­out any­thing that might be con­sid­ered ex­tra­ne­ous. One of the things we like most about this range is that it’s de­lib­er­ately low-key (pun in­tended) in terms of looks and fea­tures — all the Pro key­boards are plain black, with just a glow­ing G on the top right and the joy­stic­k­i­con ‘gam­ing mode’ but­ton at the top right — you won’t find ded­i­cated macro keys or me­dia con­trols.

They still in­clude glow­ing, mul­ti­coloured back­lit keys, of course, but you can turn the lat­ter off, or dial it back to be much more se­date. Log­itech also has some of the best soft­ware when it comes to con­fig­ur­ing that back­light­ing. It’s fast and slick, and we found it made us much more in­clined to ac­tu­ally cus­tomise keys.

This tenkey­less ‘ board isn’t quite as com­pact as some of the more ex­treme ex­am­ples from this sub­cat­e­gory, but it’s still quite small. Log­itech’s own Romer-G switches live un­der those nicely-spaced key­caps, mean­ing rea­son­ably quiet and very sta­ble typ­ing is the name of the game. In fact, when it comes to gripes, the only one we have is to do with the de­tach­able USB cable, which has a large plug that means the cable sticks awk­wardly out the back of the key­board, right in the mid­dle — some­thing that’s made worse when you’ve got the tenkey­less propped up on its feet.

That’s a mi­nor com­plaint against a ‘ board that oth­er­wise gets al­most ev­ery­thing else right — and you don’t need to be a gam­ing pro to ap­pre­ci­ate its charms.

Ver­dict

Some mi­nor flaws can’t di­min­ish the ap­peal of what’s oth­er­wise a near-per­fect tenkey­less ‘board.
