Logitech G PRO X Keyboard Review: Best Mechanical Keyboard for Mac Users

For MacBook Pro users, the keyboard is a kind of helplessness, so the MacBook Pro 16 -inch redesigned the keyboard. However, many MacBook users still endure the butterfly keyboard, which is not easy to use every day. The author also endured it for a long time, and finally changed to an external mechanical keyboard Logitech PRO X. After using it for more than a month, I wanted to share my feelings with you.

Replace Mac keyboard

Logitech PRO X uses an 87-key design without a Num Pad. It has the same width as a MacBook and is easy to carry. It is a great replacement for a Mac keyboard. The upper row provides 12 function keys (F1 to F12), which can be customized for complex macros under the software. As a professional keyboard, black is used as the main color, with rubber feet, which can be adjusted in three stages, which is convenient for users to find the most suitable keyboard typing angle.

You can switch between three types of keys

For many people who want to try a mechanical keyboard, the most difficult decision must be what axis? Some people like the resilience of the green shaft (slap), others like the feel of the tea shaft, and some people like the quietness of the red shaft.

The biggest feature of Logitech G PRO X is that it allows you to replace three different key shafts yourself. Users can choose a shaft when purchasing G PRO X. If they want to change the shaft later, they can also buy a button shaft to replace it by themselves. Keycaps and key shafts can be easily removed by simply using the tools that came with the keyboard.

LIGHTSYNC RGB

LIGHTSYNC RGB gives you different feelings

As a Mac user, to be honest, I did n’t really accept the “flashing” gaming keyboard in the past. Why should a good keyboard become colorful? The answer is beautiful!

PRO X can be automatically backlit by Logitech 's G HUB software (supports Windows / macOS ). I changed to blue light, the effect is really beautiful, the text on each keycap is displayed more clearly than when the backlight is not turned on. If you like, there are a lot of different templates in G HUB for you to choose from, and some of them have "dynamic" effects, which will make your keyboard more personalized after being applied.

Gaming mode

For professional users, you can light up the key of the key, reducing the chance of pressing the wrong key. With G Hub, users can even set the Gaming Mode to pause useless keys, which can reduce the chance of errors. There is a game mode key on the upper right of the keyboard. After starting, you can pause some keys according to user needs.

Custom keyboard functions

With G Hub software, users can freely design macros or instructions for the keyboard. G Hub can fully correspond to the system functions in macOS. For example, you can customize some Function keys to “capture images”. In short, the hotkeys available for macOS can also be assigned to the user settings here to achieve one-click image capture and one-key return. Page and other functions.

Feel good

As a text worker, I've been "typing the keyboard" for a long time, and I especially like the smoothness of "clouds and rivers." After using G PRO X , typing speed is much faster than using the MacBook Pro 's butterfly keyboard, and when I hear the crisp and crisp "pops", there is an indescribable "refreshment", and my work mood becomes better. "However, if you are good at work, you must sharpen your skills first." To improve work efficiency, you can easily do it with another Keyboard.
