Introducing the Logitech Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED, Logitech's inaugural 60% gaming keyboard. This compact powerhouse measures 10.3 cm in width, 29 cm in height, and 3.9 cm in depth, offering a compact yet feature-packed design that caters to gamers' demands for performance and portability. Unlike the G410, a previous Logitech keyboard with additional keys, the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED focuses solely on the main keyboard without the numpad, arrow keys, home, page up, page down, etc. This streamlined design approach reflects Logitech's dedication to creating a minimalist yet powerful gaming tool.

Logitech dedicated a significant amount of time and resources to develop the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED, collaborating with over 60 professional players and iterating through 30 prototypes to deliver a keyboard that meets the exacting standards of esports enthusiasts. The result is a keyboard that combines cutting-edge technology with ergonomic design, making it a compelling choice for gamers who prioritize performance and functionality.

The Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED boasts Logitech's GX Optical switches, which utilize light disruption rather than physical contact for activation. Available in tactile and linear variants, these switches offer users a choice between subtle feedback or a smooth keystroke, catering to individual preferences for typing and gaming experiences. In this review, Logitech provided a version with linear switches, which are known for their consistent actuation and responsiveness.

Having experienced Logitech GX Optical switches for the first time, I can attest to their smooth actuation and minimal pressure requirement. Logitech specifies an actuation point of 1.8mm with 50g of force and a total travel distance of 4.0mm. They've also tested these switches for over 50 million key presses, ensuring long-lasting durability and reliability. The sound of the key press is satisfying without being overly loud, adding to the overall immersive gaming experience.

The keyboard's keys and internals are housed within an aluminium frame surrounded by a durable plastic shell. The combination of materials provides a premium feel and robustness, ensuring that the keyboard can withstand the rigors of intense gaming sessions. The smooth finish of the plastic adds to the keyboard's aesthetic appeal, while the aluminium internals contribute to its structural integrity and durability. Despite its compact size, the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED feels solid and stable, with minimal flex and a reassuring weight that conveys quality craftsmanship.

Each key on the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED is individually backlit, allowing for enhanced visibility and customization options. The LIGHTSYNC RGB Lighting feature enables users to synchronize lighting effects with other Logitech RGB products or create unique lighting profiles tailored to their preferences. Out of the box, the keyboard lights up in a non-distracting blue colour, chosen based on feedback from esports players for minimal distraction and maximum functionality. The lighting is bright and consistent across most keys, with minor issues only on keys with extensive text like Shift and Caps, which is a minor nitpick in an otherwise impressive lighting setup.

A standout feature of the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED is the volume dial located conveniently on the left side of the keyboard. This dial provides smooth, accessible volume control, allowing gamers to adjust audio levels quickly and easily during gameplay. Logitech's deliberate placement of the volume dial reflects their commitment to user-centric design, ensuring that essential controls are within easy reach for a seamless gaming experience. The dial's responsiveness and tactile feedback make it a joy to use, adding a touch of convenience and functionality to the keyboard.

In addition to the volume dial, the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED features a hardware switch on the right side for toggling gaming mode on or off. In gaming mode, keys like the Windows and Menu keys are disabled to prevent accidental interruptions during intense gaming sessions. Logitech's attention to detail is evident in the design of this switch, which offers just the right amount of resistance to prevent accidental toggling while remaining easy to operate when needed. The switch's recessed position further minimizes the risk of accidental adjustments, showcasing Logitech's commitment to creating a keyboard that meets the specific needs of gamers.

When it comes to wireless connectivity, the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED offers versatility with two modes: 2.4GHz LIGHTSPEED wireless and Bluetooth. This dual-mode functionality allows users to connect the keyboard to multiple devices using different connections, providing flexibility and convenience for various gaming setups. Dedicated buttons on the keyboard make it easy to switch between connection types, ensuring a smooth and uninterrupted gaming experience. For optimal gaming performance, Logitech recommends using the included dongle for LIGHTSPEED connectivity, which offers low latency and reliable connectivity even in interference-prone environments.

Battery life is another area where the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED excels, providing approximately 2.75 days of charge with RGB lighting on. Charging the keyboard is convenient via USB-C cable, and the included six-foot cable offers flexibility in positioning. The keyboard can also be used wired while charging, ensuring uninterrupted gaming sessions even when the battery is low. While the battery is not user-replaceable, Logitech assures users that it should last about 10 years of regular charging, providing long-term durability and reliability.

Compact 60% keyboards like the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED offer advantages in terms of space-saving design and portability, making them ideal for gamers who value a clutter-free gaming setup. However, the lack of certain keys can be a drawback for some users, especially those who work and game from the same setup. Logitech addressed this feedback by introducing KeyControl, a feature that allows for extensive customization through layers of modifiers, programmable buttons, and macros. This level of customization empowers users to tailor the keyboard to their specific needs and gaming preferences, enhancing their overall gaming experience.

In terms of aesthetics, Logitech has opted for a clean and minimalist design with the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED, avoiding unnecessary plastic lines or shapes that can detract from the keyboard's overall appeal. The keyboard's simple yet sleek appearance complements its advanced features and functionality, creating a visually appealing and high-performance gaming tool. The Logitech Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED is available in three colour options: pink, black, or white. This pricing reflects the keyboard's premium features, including customizable RGB lighting, wireless connectivity, durable construction, and ergonomic design.

Overall, the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED is a standout choice for gamers looking for a fast, esports-focused 60% wireless keyboard with solid performance, extensive customization options, and great battery life. Whether you're a professional gamer or a casual player, the Pro X 60 LIGHTSPEED offers everything you need for a competitive edge in gaming.
