I don't get why Logitech isn't putting volume controls on their $150 keyboards. Their $40-50 keyboards have them.

Really like this keyboard, been using it several months. Its quieter than a lot of other mechanicals and the feel is similar to a MX Brown to me. The lighting is also pretty good but I mainly use mechanical keyboards for typing for the past decade or so. The build is very solid and the detachable cable is nice.

Only negative for me is the keys shine up really really fast. Many are smooth and glossy now and you cant easily swap out these keys with anything else like a Cherry compatible switch.

This is a good price for this particular model. The full size without lighting is much cheaper but I like the 10 keyless form and space savings.

I've had this keyboard since getting it on this dealmid-2018 and it's worked perfectly since. I only wish that it had a usb input for my mouse and dedicated media controls. I'm not a fan of having to push function whenever I want to raise, lower or pause my music. (there's probably a third party app somewhere, I just didn't think of looking there till now)

Edited to correct that this is a different model (920-008290) from the latest Logitech Pro (920-009388). Apparently the switch on this model is a Romer-G "tactile" and apparently (from comments below) it feels like a Brown although (from the article) it's a less tactile bump than the Brown.

Great keyboard. I have the latest gen of it. Not really sure what the difference is but it is an excellent, excellent keyboard and the first one that I actually enjoy messing with the RGB effects. 2 year warranty too.

Since I was curious and other people will be too, I'm sure, the Romer-G switches in this keyboard are comparable to Cherry Blues (tactile, clicky, lower end fo the actuation force range) but the Cherrys are "miles ahead"

Verified that this keyboard is GX-Blue from Romer-G on the Logitech site.

Someone said the switches are comparable to MX browns. So are MX browns similar to cherry blues?

So this is a little confusing. You're definitely right that their website lists this keyboard as having the GX Blue keys, I'm just not entirely sure the Logitech site itself is accurate here.

I'm open to being corrected if anyone knows better, but I believe this TKL Pro came out before they had varying Romer-G switch types. It used, and still uses (I think), the original Romer-G, which became the Tactile variant once the Linear was introduced.

I bought this keyboard from Amazon a week or two ago and have been using it for a few days. Definitely wouldn't say it's the equivalent of an MX Blue switch. Feels far more in line with a slightly softer, squishier MX Brown, mixed with the actuation distance of an MX Speed. I rather like the typing experience, but it's very much a "not for everyone" kind of thing. Best to try this one out in a store before buying, if possible.

Not dedicated controls, but the Fkeys do have volume controls printed in the front (forward/back, vol up and down, play and pause, mute) and you can set those to be default actions and have to use the alt key for F functions. works well for me.

MX is the same company as cherry. It's Cherry MX. MX browns are tactile but not clicky, blues are tactile AND clicky. Emorse07 pointed out that this is actually a different model from the one I linked. The one on sale is 920-008290, and the one I linked is actually 920-009388.

You're right, I was wrong. This must be an older model than the one currently on the site, different model number.

Logitech mechanical keyboards are nice. But the roamer keys are a real bummer to replace. You have to order them from logitech. You can buy a few individual caps for arrow or WASD keys. But no one sells a 104-key pack like they do for the cherry max keys.

They're closer to Cherry MX brown on tactile feel and clicky noise. If that helps simplify it for ya.

But also see my post above yours - downside is that you can't swap out keycaps with third party caps. Only specific keys like WASD. The rest you have to order from Logitech.

I keep wishing they would make a lightspeed wireless version of this keyboard. I'd jump on that in an instant.
