The Logitech G513 is a mechanical gaming keyboard available since April 2018. It looks similar to the Logitech G413, but offers more features.

Gaming Keyboard with Lightsync RGB Lighting

The illumination of the Logitech G513 supports the full RGB spectrum. More than 16 million colors are available and can be customized for each key individually. And of course, there are various lighting effects and animations available. Thanks to Logitech’s Lightsync technology, the illumination of other compatible devices can be synced with the keyboards lighting.

The keyboard further comes with a memory foam palm rest and twelve additional gaming keycaps. These can be used to swap out the keys for the numbers one to five and the letters Q, W, E, R, A, S and D. Conveniently a keycap puller is also included in delivery.

The illumination, the gaming mode and macros for the function keys can be configured via the Logitech gaming software. The G513 supports 26-key rollover, you therefore never have to worry about whether your inputs will be recognized correctly.
