Raw Performance

The Logitech G PRO X 60 is a compact (60%) wireless gaming keyboard that continues Logitech's G PRO lineup. It's Logitech's first compact 60% keyboard, a form factor that has grown in popularity with gamers. While it lacks a function row, dedicated arrow keys, and a navigation cluster, it provides more room on your desk for mouse movements and makes it much more portable than traditional full-size gaming keyboards. To that end, the G PRO X 60 also comes with a carrying case. You can buy this keyboard in one of three colorways and with either GX Optical Linear or Tactile switch options. You can also customize settings using Logitech's G HUB configuration software, which includes button assignments, custom macros, and RGB backlighting.

Our Verdict

8.5 Gaming

The Logitech G PRO X 60 is an excellent gaming keyboard. It has good overall build quality and outstanding latency performance, making it well-suited for casual or competitive gaming. It also has full RGB backlighting that you can customize along with a range of other settings using the configuration software. Unfortunately, it has a fairly high profile, which can tire out your wrists during long gaming sessions if you aren't using a wrist rest. It also doesn't include a wrist rest, and Logitech doesn't sell a wrist rest to match its compact form factor at the time of writing.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Outstanding latency performance.
Cons
  • Limited customizability; no hot-swappable PCB.
6.9 Office

The Logitech G PRO X 60 is adequate for Office use. Overall, it has good build quality and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or its included USB receiver. Unfortunately, it doesn't support multi-device pairing. Its typing noise is also on the louder side and isn't suitable for noise-sensitive environments. Its high-profile design makes it most comfortable to use with a wrist rest. Unfortunately, it doesn't include one in the box, and Logitech doesn't sell a wrist rest to match its compact form factor at the time of writing.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Connects wirelessly with its included USB receiver or via Bluetooth.
Cons
  • Underwhelming typing quality compared to competing options.
  • Somewhat loud typing noise.
  • Doesn't support multi-device pairing.
7.5 Mobile/Tablet

The Logitech G PRO X 60 is good for mobile devices and tablets. It has good overall build quality, and you can connect it wirelessly via Bluetooth. Its compact form makes it much more portable than a full-size keyboard, and this unit comes with a travel case. Unfortunately, it doesn't support multi-device pairing.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Includes a carrying case.
  • Connects wirelessly with its included USB receiver or via Bluetooth.
Cons
  • Doesn't support multi-device pairing.
  • No compatible software option for mobile operating systems.
7.0 Programming

The Logitech G PRO X 60 is satisfactory for programming. It has good overall build quality and full RGB backlighting with shine-through keycaps, making the legends easy to read in darker rooms. You can connect this keyboard wirelessly via its USB receiver or Bluetooth. Unfortunately, it doesn't support multi-device pairing. It also lacks dedicated F-row keys due to its compact form factor. Lastly, while you can program macros to any key using the configuration software, there aren't any dedicated macro keys, and you can't program macros directly on the keyboard using hotkeys alone.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Connects wirelessly with its included USB receiver or via Bluetooth.
  • Full RGB backlighting with individually-lit key and shine-through keycaps.
Cons
  • Underwhelming typing quality compared to competing options.
  • Somewhat loud typing noise.
  • No dedicated macro keys.
6.1 Entertainment / HTPC

The Logitech G PRO X 60 is acceptable for entertainment or home theater PC setups. It has good build quality and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or its USB receiver. Unfortunately, it doesn't support multi-device pairing and lacks dedicated media controls. It has full RGB backlighting with individually backlit keys and shine-through keycaps, so you can clearly see legends in darker rooms.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Connects wirelessly with its included USB receiver or via Bluetooth.
  • Full RGB backlighting with individually-lit key and shine-through keycaps.
Cons
  • Doesn't support multi-device pairing.
  • No dedicated media keys.
8.8 Raw Performance

The Logitech G PRO X 60 has excellent raw performance with outstanding single-key and excellent multi-key latency. It takes full advantage of its 1000Hz polling rate without being bottlenecked by other latency components, making it well-suited for playing games in any genre and at any competitive level.

Pros
  • Outstanding latency performance.
Cons

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Logitech G PRO X 60 is available in Black, White, and Pink colorways. There are no variants at the time of writing.

We bought and tested the Black color variant. You can see the label for our unit here.

Compared To Other Keyboards

The Logitech G PRO X 60 continues Logitech's G PRO X lineup of mechanical gaming keyboards. This keyboard offers features and gaming performance similar to the previous-generation Logitech G PRO X keyboard. However, it introduces wireless connectivity with Logitech's proprietary LIGHTSPEED receiver or power-saving Bluetooth. This keyboard also marks the first compact 60% model in the lineup. This makes it a good match for smaller desktop setups and provides more room for dynamic mouse movements. It also includes a carrying case, which makes it a standout option for LAN tournament players.

However, unlike the previous generation Logitech G PRO X, the new G PRO X 60 lacks a conventional hot-swappable PCB, which limits you to GX Optical Linear or Tactile switch options available at purchase. In addition to lacking hot-swappable switches, this keyboard also lacks notable quality-of-life features commonly found in many recent gaming models from other major gaming brands, like factory-lubed switches or sound-dampening material in the case. This compact model delivers outstanding wireless latency performance but offers little else to differentiate it from its competition.

For more options, see our recommendations for the best keyboard, the best mechanical keyboard, and the best gaming keyboard.

Logitech G PRO X TKL

The Logitech G PRO X TKL and the Logitech G PRO X 60 are similar wireless gaming keyboards in the same lineup. The G PRO X TKL is a larger model with an arrow cluster, navigation keys, and a function row. It also uses standard Logitech GX mechanical switches. The Logitech G PRO X 60 is a smaller model that uses GX Optical switches and performs slightly better overall.

Wooting 60HE

The Wooting 60HE and the Logitech G PRO X 60 are compact 60% gaming keyboards. The Wooting is a wired-only model with better build quality and slightly better overall raw performance. Notably, it also uses hall effect switches that allow you to customize the actuation and reset sensitivity of individual keys. The Logitech, on the other hand, is a wireless model. It performs almost as well but is comparatively more straightforward and has standard optical switches.

SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless

The SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini Wireless and the Logitech G PRO X 60 are both compact (60%) wireless gaming keyboards with excellent raw gaming performance. Overall, the SteelSeries has better build quality and uses hall effect switches, which allow you to customize the pre-travel and reset distance on individual switches. It also supports multi-device pairing, a feature the Logitech lacks. Comparatively, the Logitech is much more straightforward. While it has roughly equivalent raw gaming performance, it uses standard optical switches that don't allow you to adjust the pre-travel or reset distance of individual switches.

SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini

The SteelSeries Apex Pro Mini and the Logitech G PRO X 60 are compact 60% gaming keyboards. The SteelSeries has better overall build quality, and its standout feature is its hall-effect switches that allow you to customize the pre-travel and reset distance of individual switches. The Logitech is a wireless model that's comparatively much more straightforward and has standard optical switches.

Logitech G PRO X Keyboard

The Logitech G PRO X Keyboard and the Logitech G PRO X 60 are gaming keyboards in the same lineup. The G PRO X is an older, wired-only model with a larger TenKeyLess (80%) form factor. It comes stock with Logitech GX mechanical switches but also has a hot-swappable PCB, a feature the newer G PRO X 60 lacks. On the other hand, the Logitech G PRO X 60 is a wireless model with a smaller 60% form factor. It has slightly better overall raw performance and uses GX optical switches.

This keyboard has a 60% compact form factor, which means it takes up considerably less space on your desk than a conventional full-size keyboard, but it lacks dedicated arrow keys, a navigation cluster, and a function row.

The dimensions of the keyboard in its included carrying case are as follows:

Build Quality
Keycap Material PBT

The Logitech G PRO X 60 has good overall build quality. It has a plastic bottom case and a visible metal top plate that holds the switches in place. It's very sturdy-feeling overall and doesn't flex.

The keycaps are made of PBT plastic, and the spacebar has included foam pieces and silicone pads installed on the plate below.

Four rubber pads on the underside do a good job of keeping the board in place while you type. The two flip-out feet also have rubber pads and don't slide around while extended.

The keys are reasonably stable while typing but wobble more than expected compared to similar gaming keyboards. The stabilizers on larger keys provide good overall stability performance, but they feel somewhat inconsistent. For example, the Enter key feels noticeably stiffer than the spacebar.

This keyboard's PCB isn't hot-swapple in the conventional sense, but switches are theoretically 'replaceable.' You can remove the switches without soldering (Logitech has a manual that demonstrates how to replace switches on their website). However, Logitech doesn't seem to sell replacement switches at the time of writing, and the switches themselves have non-standard pinouts, so they aren't interchangeable with other aftermarket optical switches.

Using a Bluetooth connection will provide better battery life at the expense of gaming performance.

This keyboard delivers decent typing quality overall. The GX tactile switches have a satisfying tactile bump. Unfortunately, they aren't lubed from the factory and have a slightly scratchy feeling. Additionally, the PBT keycaps wobble somewhat and make faint rattling sounds. The stabilizers on larger keys offer reasonably good stability, but the experience isn't as consistent between different keys, and the Enter key is noticeably stiffer-feeling compared to the spacebar.

No

The Logitech G PRO X 60 emits fairly loud typing noises with the GX Optical Tactile switches on the unit we bought and tested. It's also worth noting that the sound of the stabilizers on larger keys is significant, and there isn't any internal sound-dampening material. You can also buy this keyboard with GX Optical Linear switches, which we expect to be quieter.

However, if you're concerned about noise levels, it's worth keeping in mind that the stabilizers on larger keys are still fairly loud, and there's no internal sound-dampening material inside the case, so we don't expect that choosing the linear switch option will make large enough of a difference to make this keyboard suitable for noise-sensitive environments.

The GX Optical Tactile switches have a moderate but satisfying bump to overcome before actuation. You can also buy this keyboard with GX Optical Linear switches. Logitech advertises that these switches have the same weight and total travel specifications. Still, as a linear option, they produce a smooth keystroke throughout without any bump to overcome before actuation.
