New Logitech Mechanical Keyboards are Conservative in Looks and Price

Tuesday January 25, 2022. 07:45 PM , from Slashdot/Apple
Logitech has introduced two mechanical keyboards to its lineup. Shipping in February, the boards are part of the company's PC gaming brand, but with their $70 starting price and classic, toned-down look, they're also interesting candidates for someone seeking a productivity keyboard with mechanical switches. From a report: The Logitech G G413 SE and G413 TKL SE are $80 and $70, respectively, offering a reasonable entry point for people who might think mechanical keyboards are too expensive. Logitech, specifically its G gaming brand, isn't afraid to overload its keyboards with RGB lighting, but the backlight on these boards comes in white only. The standard G413 is available with an all-white or all-red backlight. A subdued appearance continues with a top case made of aluminum-magnesium alloy with a brushed black finish that matches the black PBT keycaps. The plastic should be an upgrade from the non-SE G413's ABS plastic keyboards, as PBT is generally more resistant to degradation over time. Underneath those keycaps are what Logitech calls 'tactile mechanical switches.' That phrase suggests something like Cherry MX Browns, but Logitech didn't specify the exact switch used. According to the full-size SE keyboard's product page, the switches actuate at 1.9 mm with 50 g of force and bottom out at 4 mm.
