Logitech G413 Review

Gadgets Technology

There may be no doubt about the popularity of RGB lighting and macro keys among the best gaming keyboards, but these features usually come at a high price. Both the Roccat Suora and the HyperX Alloy FPS demonstrate that gamers are looking for affordable keyboards that have a simple, no-frills design that doesn’t rely on extra features. Logitech G413, the latest gaming keyboard from the company, is designed for such purposes. has been designed to eliminate the unnecessary media keys and macro keys, along with the RGB backlighting system. As a result, it has a frameless design and a full set of Logitech’s 

Design

Logitech’s G413 keyboard may appear a little naked in comparison to most traditional keyboards or gaming keyboards. With no base plate hiding beneath the keyboard’s cover, you can see its full glory beneath the plastic cover. Logitech G413 Carbon does not suffer from a lack of an external shell, making it as rigid as a conventional model. If you tried to bend or find weak areas on this keyboard, it wouldn’t bend – its aluminum-magnesium alloy plate is too solid. Despite the weight of the laptop, the Logitech G413 carbon feels practically indestructible. Due to the diagonal lines molded into the underside, it adds to its rigidity, while elevating it above the level of Our favorite feature on the Logitech G413 Carbon is the black painted metal and the red backlighting, however we want to shout out the brighter steel panels and white backlighting found on the Silver version, which is available in the United States exclusively at Best Buy. Only thing some users may not like is that the key caps float right above the base board without any side protection. Having a simpler design is more appealing to me, and the cleanup is also easier. Despite Logitech’s ostentatious keyboard design, its keyboards have become ever thinner and more sophisticated since the company first introduced the G910 Orion Spark in 2006. A completely bare frame measuring just a centimeter thick is a major step in the right direction, and the Logitech G413 is the last major product in this direction.

Features

Sadly, Logitech’s minimalistic philosophy severely constrains its feature set in the G413 . Logitech does not have any dedicated media buttons on this keyboard, unlike all its other models. 

Although not as extensive as what you’ll find on the Corsair Strafe, this level of connectivity is still an improvement over the HyperX Alloy FPS’s single charging port. The charging station also makes wireless peripherals, like the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum, easy to use, and it is convenient for charging electronic Located at the bottom of the keyboard, the cable pathway in the bottom allows you to route your headphone cable, a feature we’ve only experienced with the Corsair K95 RGB Platinum keyboard. Furthermore, an additional U-shaped channel prevents your gaming mouse from being pulled out of the channel.

Performance

This keyboard is equipped with Romer-G switches instead of the membrane keys or Cherry MX switches found on Logitech’s last few budget models. They’re responsive and relatively silent mechanical switches, but if you haven’t used them yourself, what you need to know is that they’re responsive and relatively silent. When you reach the bottom of the 2.5mm of key travel on the Romer-G mechanisms, there is a strong tactile bump. Even with the long actuation distance, we were able to cover more quickly and with more reliability than Due to Logitech’s dedication to response times, response times have become second nature. Furthermore, Romer-G switches are rated for 70 million actuations, so they won’t need to be replaced for a while. The Logitech package includes a set of twelve faceted key caps you can use to replace the WASD and first five number keys, as well as a few other keys. Having them separate the gaming-specific keys from the rest of the board is a nice touch.

Final Verdict

In a move worth your consideration, Logitech introduced a gorgeous, mechanical gaming keyboard that’s cost-effective and beautifully designed. The price and responsiveness of this option makes it the most affordable frameless monitor on the market, beating out the HyperX Alloy FPS and the Roccat Suora. While the slower USB 2.0 passthrough and lack of a dedicated media key are two compromises you’ll have to accept for that low price, the Logitech G413 feels like a much better value than its competitors. While this is true, it does seem to be about a notch below Logitech’s own entry-level option compared to the company’s other offerings. Whatever the case, you can still find the G413 to be among the best gaming keyboards under $100 currently on the market.
