The Logitech G613 is the no-nonsense wireless gaming keyboard to beat, from a streamlined design to a hassle-free setup and response. This cable-free slab joined my PC and Xbox One earlier this year and takes the crown as my top pick. And with Black Friday 2019, there’s a new opportunity to grab yourself one at a bargain price.
The G613 packs all you need for gaming, with low-latency wireless, snappy mechanical keys, and one-year of quoted battery life. I’m also a massive fan of that matt finish with muted highlights, steering from the traditional RGB-packed mess of rivals. It’s a design that doesn’t look so crazy in the office, while still doubling for any gaming setup.
While we’ve seen the Logitech G613 fluctuate below its $130 retail before, a recent cut to $70 is the cheapest we’ve seen in some time.
Wireless is increasingly appealing for a clean desk setup, with the G613 riding on its “Lightspeed” low-latency capabilities primed for competitive titles. The one-millisecond report rate avoids trading convenience for performance over the included USB receiver, with the choice of Bluetooth too. That USB connection even works on Xbox One, compatible with Fortnite, Call of Duty, and more.
Logitech’s in-house Romer-G mechanical switches also prove impressive, balancing benefits of snappy input, while quieter than most solutions. The design also lines six assignable “G Keys” down the left-hand panel for macros and commands, with media controls and a game mode switch up top. You’ll even get an integrated palm rest to cradle your arms, although a lack of backlighting may frustrate some. Oh, and it comes with a matching smartphone stand, because why not?
If you’re looking for a wireless gaming keyboard that offers a premium mechanical experience but cutting the flair of Razer and Corsair, you can’t go wrong here.
