A really awesome keyboard, i was actually going for the cheap gaming keyboards like the Blaze 3 but This, it may be a bit costly for most of you all but trust me it’s worth it, this is the best RGB membrane keyboard ever! It may not be mechanical but do not ever go for the cheap gaming keyboards , this keyboard gives a premium, stealthy look and has alot of game lighting profiles Pros 1.durable 2.Nice vibrant colors 3 Nice quality membrane keys 4. Almost everything Cons 1. Not many lighting effects 2.COULD have been a Mechanical keyboard
I know its costly but its worth your money! Logitech/any known branded products LAST LONGer than any random ones...
Pros: Although its not mechanical, the keys feel very responsive! The lights on the keyboard look amazing and CAN be switched off with a hardware button on the keyboard. The software perfectly links up with my mouse (which is also Logitech!) and feels very seamless. Fits great on the
AmazonBasics Extended Gaming Mouse Pad
Cons: The wrist rest is non-removable, which is not a big deal but the material used can/will make your wrist sweaty. For some reason, the lights on the software keep resetting (noting wrong with the hardware) and always stops when its purple which is funny. The media keys don't work with online applications (Like YouTube!)
Overall, honestly I feel It was worth the full price too, but somehow it was on offer when I was about to order it! Thanks, Anunay!
++ Keys feels a little stiff, but thus far, very good touch responsiveness all around. ++ Key spacing is okay (not bad considering my previous mechanical had a more ergonomic design). ++ Good height and surface area on the wrist wrest. ++ Surprisingly heavy, with the added advantage of staying in place more so than my last keyboard.
-- The Lock state and Game Mode lights at the top row are INSANELY BRIGHT! and there's no way to control them. It makes no sense to have fully programmable lights on everything else but not those four. I've had to cover them with narrow strips of masking tape to act as diffuser. -- The height on the back legs is too high. For someone used to a low incline, it's best to have it just laying flat or use something else underneath to raise the board.
I had been contemplating to buy this for a long time. Went through numerous reviews and compared all other products in similar price range on offer. This was the best amongst all that I could review. It was delivered in excellent condition, well packed and timely delivery. I have been using it for over a month now and all is as expected. The RGB lights are well lit and you can change the zone lighting in 5 zones. There are 3-4 types of pulse settings for the lighting. They keys have a nice tactile feel and are broad and we'll placed. Works excellent.
The main thing to remember about this keyboard is the moment you plug it into your PC you must download the software (NOT INCLUDED) from the Logitech web site and do the updates. Failure to do this will result in a compromised user experience. Even then you may discover, as I did, that the user software is NOT that user friendly and I can easily see the occasional gamer half ready to throw the thing out the window because of the very slow to completely non-responsiveness of the software. Be patient. You may need to tell the keyboard to perform the same task a dozen times before it actually responds to your selection but once it does it will keep your setting. I'm docking a star in the "gaming" section for this. The software is NOT very user friendly and quite sluggish. This is not a feature sought out by gamers or anyone else but when gaming you want nanosecond responsiveness.
As for the material and design you can be rest assured that Logitech went all out with this board. Simple, but effective, yes, it does macros but there are no special separate keys designated for this, which pleases me immensely. I enjoy the simplicity of the layout. Now I bought this board for the tactile switches -- not for gaming specifically. If you want a real gamer board be prepared to pay hundreds of dollars or get ready to compromise. There are no short cuts with gamer boards in this regard no matter what retailers may tell you. There is simply NO DECENT GAMER BOARD that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars. NO, NEVER.
The Prodigy 213 is a pleasure to type on. The switches are responsive and not as hard on my fingers as typical mechanical keyboards. I've been through over a dozen keyboards under $100.00 trying to find one that suits my own personal typing needs and this one comes pretty close. It has a nice "membrane" feel to it but it is clicky enough for a fast touch typist to be pleased with the quick response from the keys. Your fingers will never beat the return on the key although at times it feels as though it will. Some of you might know what I'm talking about especially if you are familiar with certain membrane keyboards. My keyboard is not breathing, strobing, or rippling. I kept these options turned off. I don't want a discotech, I just want a good, dependable keyboard. Unfortunately I had to purchase a "gaming" style RGB keyboard to give me what I wanted. I paid for a lot of features that I will likely never use. I thoroughly enjoy the built in palm rest and at the end of the day my fingers aren't aching from all the typing I do. This is a big plus. I've gone full circle back to Logitech and only time will tell how long this board will last. It's certainly going to get a good pounding because I type... A lot. This review is subject to updates.
