The Logitech G413 is a mechanical gaming keyboard in the mid-range price segment.
Minimalist Design, Rugged Material
Similar to the Razer BlackWidow X and Corsair K95 RGB Platinum, the Logitech G413 is a keyboard without a protective top cover. This means that the keys are freestanding on the base plate. The base plate is made of aluminium alloy, which gives the keyboard a high-quality look.
Like most keyboards by Logitech, the G413 features the so-called Romer-G switches. These tactile switches have a slightly shorter way to go to the switch point than the Cherry MX Brown switches, thus allowing for faster triggering – at least in theory.
G413 Carbon and G413 Silver
The keyboard is available in two different designs. While the Logitech G413 Carbon has a dark metal plate and red background lighting, the Logitech G413 Silver – as the name suggests – boasts a silver metal plate and white background lighting. Other than that, the two versions are identical. Multimedia commands are integrated in the function keys, and macros can be assigned to keys F1-F12. Moreover, a USB passthrough at the top-right rim of the keyboard allows you to easily connect an additional USB device.
26 key rollover and a gaming mode that, among others, deactivates the Windows key, ensure an uninterrupted gaming experience. In addition, the keyboard comes with a keycap puller and twelve additional keycaps for the letters Q, W, E, R, A, S and D, and the numbers 1-5. These allow for special highlighting of the keys commonly used when playing PC games.
