Raw Performance

The Logitech G PRO X TKL is a TenKeyLess wireless gaming keyboard that continues Logitech's G PRO lineup. This is the first entry in the lineup that offers wireless connectivity, either via Bluetooth or Logitech's LIGHTSPEED receiver. You can buy this keyboard in one of three colorways with Tactile, Clicky, or Linear mechanical switch options. Using Logitech's G-HUB configuration software, you can customize several settings, including button assignments, custom macros, and RGB backlighting.

Our Verdict

8.3 Gaming

The Logitech G PRO X TKL is an impressive gaming keyboard. It has good build quality and excellent all-around latency performance, making it well-suited for gaming in any genre at any competitive level. It also has full RGB backlighting that you can customize along with other settings using the companion 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.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Excellent latency performance.
  • 1000Hz effective update rate.
Cons
  • Limited customizability; no hot-swappable PCB.
7.2 Office

The Logitech G PRO X TKL is decent for office use. It has good overall build quality, is reasonably quiet with the GX Brown Tactile or GX Red Linear switch options, and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or its included USB receiver. Unfortunately, it doesn't support multi-device pairing. This keyboard has a high profile, so it's most comfortable to use with a wrist rest, especially if you're typing for longer stretches.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or a 2.4Ghz receiver.
Cons
  • Limited customizability; no hot-swappable PCB.
  • Underwhelming typing quality compared to competing options.
6.2 Mobile/Tablet

While not designed specifically for this use, The Logitech G PRO X TKL is passable for mobile devices and tablets. It has good build quality, and you can connect it wirelessly via Bluetooth. Unfortunately, it doesn't support multi-device pairing, and it's fairly tall and bulky despite its TKL form factor, so it isn't very portable or easy to slide into bags or laptop cases.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or a 2.4Ghz receiver.
Cons
  • Underwhelming typing quality compared to competing options.
  • No compatible software option for mobile operating systems.
7.1 Programming

The Logitech G PRO X TKL 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. 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 via Bluetooth or a 2.4Ghz receiver.
  • Full RGB backlighting with individually-lit keys.
Cons
  • Limited customizability; no hot-swappable PCB.
  • Underwhelming typing quality compared to competing options.
  • No dedicated macro keys.
6.8 Entertainment / HTPC

The Logitech G PRO X TKL is adequate for entertainment or home theater PC setups. It has good build quality and connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or its USB receiver. It also has dedicated media controls and full RGB backlighting with individually backlit keys and shine-through keycaps, so you can clearly see legends in darker rooms. It's somewhat heavy and bulky and designed to be used in a static desktop setup rather than from a couch.

Pros
  • Connects wirelessly via Bluetooth or a 2.4Ghz receiver.
  • Full RGB backlighting with individually-lit keys.
Cons
  • Fairly heavy and bulky considering its TenKeyLess form factor.
8.4 Raw Performance

The Logitech G PRO X TKL offers impressive 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 and supports full N-Key Rollover. Unfortunately, it lacks chord-split performance, which is an issue if you play rhythm games requiring multiple simultaneous inputs.

Pros
  • Excellent latency performance.
Cons
  • 8.3 Gaming
  • 7.2 Office
  • 6.2 Mobile/Tablet
  • 7.1 Programming
  • 6.8 Entertainment / HTPC

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Logitech G PRO X TKL 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 TKL LIGHTSPEED maintains similar features and gaming performance to its predecessor, the Logitech G PRO X Keyboard, while introducing wireless connectivity options. You can connect the Logitech G PRO X TKL either through power-efficient Bluetooth or a 2.4 GHz connection using Logitech's proprietary LIGHTSPEED receiver, which is also compatible with Logitech's G-Series gaming mice. However, it's important to note that, unlike its predecessor, the Logitech G PRO X TKL lacks a hot-swappable PCB. This limitation restricts your switch choices to the stock Tactile, Clicky, and Linear GX mechanical switches unless you're interested in soldering in new switches.

Furthermore, in addition to lacking hot-swappable switches, this keyboard doesn't come with factory-lubed switches, internal sound-dampening materials, or other typing quality features commonly found in many recent gaming models from other manufacturers. Altogether, this keyboard introduces solid wireless performance to the popular G PRO X lineup but offers little else to make it a compelling option compared to other gaming keyboards in this price range.

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

Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED

The Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED and the Logitech G PRO X TKL are wireless gaming keyboards with very similar gaming performance. The G915 LIGHTSPEED is a full-size model with a low-profile design. It's only available in a single colorway but has five dedicated macro keys, which the G PRO X TKL lacks. On the other hand, the Logitech G PRO X TKL has a smaller TenKeyLess form factor and a high-profile design. It's also available in three different colorways.

Logitech G715

The Logitech G715 and the Logitech G PRO X TKL are wireless gaming keyboards with TenKeyLess form factors and very similar gaming performance. The G715 has a somewhat sturdier build quality and better backlight clarity. However, it's only available in a white colorway. On the other hand, Logitech G PRO X TKL is available in three color options.

Logitech G PRO X Keyboard

The Logitech G PRO X Keyboard and the Logitech G PRO X TKL are gaming keyboards in the same lineup. The Logitech G PRO X Keyboard is an older wired-only model. It has a hot-swappable PCB, but it's only available in a single colorway. On the other hand, the Logitech G PRO X TKL is a wireless model with higher-quality PBT keycaps and dedicated media keys. It's available in three different color options.

ASUS ROG Azoth

The ASUS ROG Azoth and the Logitech G PRO X TKL are wireless gaming keyboards. The ASUS has a smaller Compact (75%) form factor. It has noticeably better build quality, longer advertised battery life, better typing quality, and it's quieter. It also offers significantly better hardware customizability with a hot-swappable PCB and supports multi-device pairing. On the other hand, the Logitech has a slightly larger TenKeyLess form factor. It has several additional navigational keys and dedicated media keys, which the ASUS lacks.

Build Quality
Keycap Material PBT

The Logitech G PRO X TKL has good overall build quality. It has a plastic bottom case and a visible metal top plate that holds the switches in place. There's a minimal amount of deck flexibility, but It makes minor creaking sounds when flexed. It's somewhat less flexible than its predecessor, the Logitech G PRO X Keyboard.

The keycaps are made of high-quality doubleshot PBT plastic. They feel very sturdy and have a textured finish. The stabilizers do a reasonable job of keeping larger keys from wobbling. Unfortunately, larger keys make a faint rattling sound, most notably, the Spacebar.

The keyboard is fairly stable while typing but slides around a bit if you nudge it with moderate force, especially if you have the flip-out incline feet extended to the maximum incline setting.

This keyboard offers good typing quality. The PBT plastic keycaps have a pleasant textured finish, and all alphanumeric keys are fairly stable. Larger keys with stabilizers are somewhat wobbly, but this isn't very noticeable while typing. They also feel somewhat under-lubed, with larger keys like the Spacebar and Shift keys being slightly rattly. The GX Brown Tactile switches on the unit we bought provide satisfying tactile feedback but are somewhat scratchy-feeling.

With GX Brown Tactile switches, this keyboard has satisfactory typing noise and doesn't make any distracting high-pitch clicking noises while typing.

If you buy this keyboard with GX Red Linear switches, we expect it to be slightly quieter. If you buy this keyboard with Blue Clicky switches, we expect it to be considerably louder with high-pitched clicks that are likely too disruptive for noise-sensitive environments like open office spaces.

This keyboard uses Logitech's G HUB software for configuration. The software is straightforward and fairly intuitive. It allows you to adjust expected settings, including key mapping, RGB lighting, and custom profiles.

This keyboard allows you to create multiple custom profiles, and you can save a single profile to the onboard memory. Note that the On-Board Memory Mode needs to be off to create your custom profile. Once you have your desired settings configured, you can enable the On Board Memory Mode to use your saved profile without the software running in the background.

Similar to the software options from other major manufacturers, this software receives criticism for requiring frequent updates and taking up disproportionate system resources. There weren't any software issues present during testing, but you may find this software frustrating if you prefer more lightweight software options or no software at all.
