A high-quality mechanical keyboard is essential for PC gamers. With a poorly made one, non-registered keystrokes, high input lag, uncomfortable caps, a lack of key rollover, or a whole host of other issues can make the difference between a pristine headshot or a humiliating defeat. With Logitech G’s G513 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, all of those potential pitfalls are a non-factor, with plenty of extra features to boot.
The G513 relies on a next-generation advanced design, with an irresponsibly fast 1ms report rate, and your choice of two mechanical switches: the Romer-G Tactile, or the Romer-G Linear. (The Romer-G Tactile responds with a distinct bump when pressed, while the Romer-G Linear uses completely smooth travel, with no noticeable actuation point.) Regardless of which one you choose, both options are 25% faster and quieter than traditional versions found elsewhere.
While keyboard performance is critical, that doesn’t mean it can’t look good while you use it. Very much the opposite, in fact. That’s why the G513 is fully customizable with RGB-per-key lighting, with 16.8 million color combinations available; as mathematicians can confirm: that’s quite a lot. Plus, you can choose from a list of preset lighting effects and animations, or create your own unique mash-ups within the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). That’s not all in the lighting department though—the G513 additionally utilizes Logitech’s exclusive LIGHTSYNC technology, which intelligently illuminates your keys based off in-game actions, creating an unparalleled immersive experience. Over 300 amazing games currently support LIGHTSYNC, and the library is expanding more and more.
To keep the keyboard rugged and non-slip but as minimal and handsome as possible, the G513 uses aircraft-grade, 5052 aluminum-magnesium alloy for its chassis, with a duet of alluring colors to mull over: carbon and silver. Of course, no matter which color ends up under your fingers, you can rest easy knowing your keyboard is built from the finest, most durable materials possible. To maximize comfort, you can attach the included magnetic memory-foam palm rest. It’s designed with sweat-resistant materials, and it’ll stay firmly in place due to the six rubberized feet underneath it. Rounding off the whole gamut is a fully powered USB pass-through on the back of the chassis, full-function keys for media and lighting control, 26-key rollover, and 12 optionally designed keycaps (with key puller).
