Logitech G213 Prodigy Gaming Keyboard Review
Giving you something that’s a little bit more affordable to try to get into the gaming peripheral market you can think of it more as their budget lineup of products and that’s the whole purpose of this review today is to take a look and see if it really is a good value for the money or if you should just save up and go for something a little bit more expensive and just as an added way to get back to you guys for supporting my channel if this video gets 200 likes in the first two weeks I’ll be giving one of these g2 13 prodigy keywords away to one of my subscribers all you have to do to be eligible to win is make sure you’re already subscribed to the channel and leave me a comment below letting me know what you think about logitech’s new prodigy lineup let me know if you think this keyboard is worth the money or if you should save up your money and go for something a little bit higher quality with that said let’s go ahead and take a look at the keyboard the g2 13 is made entirely of plastic it has a pretty thin frame and feels fairly lightweight but it does give a little bit of flex during use as with the other items in the prodigy line the g2 13 has a nice simplistic design it has a slightly larger than average footprint on your desk because of the integrated wrist rest which is a nice feature for those of you who like to use them but personally I would have liked it even better if it was removable at the top of the board there are four white square shaped LEDs for indicating caps scroll and num lock as well as one for gaming mode the keyboard is also liquid resistant which is never a bad thing you can tell that Logitech really wanted to pack as many premium features into this keyboard as possible as evidenced by the dedicated media keys and two additional function keys one for gaming mode and one for the lighting the g2 13 is a 16 point 8 million color RGB backlit keyboard which is controlled by Logitech Gaming software notice I did not say perky illumination instead the g2 13 has five individual lighting zones I found that for certain effects like the color wave I didn’t notice the 5 zone layout that much but for customization purposes it does limit your options quite a bit you’ll also miss out on some of the more fun lighting effects like reactive Ripple the software gives you a few preset lighting options like breathing color cycle and wave the lighting itself does look pretty good and all the secondary functions on all of the keys are illuminated which is something that I always like to see the lighting quality just doesn’t compare to the vibrancy of what you’ll find on Logitech’s higher-end spectrum keyboards but I do really like that they included an illuminated G logo above the Escape key the G 213 is a membrane keyboard that uses logitech’s Mecca dome keys yes that’s right I said membrane that’s the big compromise here Logitech did a good job of cramming a lot of features into this keyboard but for there’s just no way at this price you could get any kind of decent mechanical switches in there so what are mecha dome keys to me this is just a fancy word inform em brain style keyboard I do like that the keys fit on very snugly and they do have a nice smooth action but you will get that same mushy membrane feeling when typing of course one benefit of having a membrane keyboard is that they are much quieter than their mechanical older brothers here’s a quick sound test of the Logitech G 2:13 the g2 13 does have anti-ghosting technology so you won’t have to worry about keystrokes not registering when pressing down multiple keys simultaneously on the underside of the keyboard there are rubberized pads to keep the keyboard from sliding around on the desk to on the back and one large one on the front that runs the entire length of the keyboard there are also two rubberized extendable legs should you want to raise the angle of the board there’s also a nice six foot braided USB cable overall the g2 13 prodigy is a pretty decent keyboard with a not so off-putting this is something that the younger gamer would have an easier time convincing mom or dad to buy it does come with a lot of features that you won’t find on your run-of-the-mill keyboard like media keys and RGB backlighting even if it is somewhat limited with the g2 13 fall short is the fact that it is a membrane keyboard and lacks some of the features more serious users like to see such as USB and audio pass-through and dedicated macro keys if you’re trying to stay on a budget the g2 13 isn’t a bad way to go you can easily find a higher tier RGB mechanical keyboard just for example I have seen the g9 10 a Ryan spectrum.
