Anyone else's G Pro ROMER-G spacebar and shift make a 'loose' key type sound when pressed at certain points? I think it's because there's a metal piece under the switch to keep the spacebar and shift keys level when pressed. A small quirk but an annoying one.

Pro had an increased focus on performance due to the esports aspect, but it was also part of a natural progression in performance as we make and improve our gaming products.

As for a 60% keyboard, we never comment on unreleased products or new product development.

Since G413 is newer released, does this means G413 has similar fast KSP as G Pro?

Don't confuse this with actuation (time to close the switch contact), or polling rate (how often the keyboard reports to your PC via USB).

Logitech used a dedicated test box based on a raspberry Pi. Keyboards tested have a switch hardwired to the test box. The test box closes the circuit and then measures the time until the signal is detected by the Pi test box. There is variance during testing, but large numbers of test responses yield statistically valid results.

The Logitech G Pro gaming keyboard KSP is 2.5ms on make and on break (time from contact opening to signal received. G810 is close to that speed, but we focused on Pro for the speed optimization.

The Pro polls at 1ms, so the fastest any KSP can be is 1ms. 1ms is the fasted polling rate for PCs running Windows.
hey Mark, can you say when will be this keyboard be released in Russia?

There is no metal bar under the spacebar just 2 stabilizers like on some cherry keyboards. I put o-rings on them to make it a little less "clanky" also inverted it so the edge doesn't dig in my thumb.

I gotta say I'm quite impressed by the performance of this keyboard, strafing in csgo has never felt so precise to me.

Will this keyboard work without software once I set it up and save the profile to it ?

Not a bad idea where do you buy these o-rings? Loving the speed of the keyboard.. I'm really used to the Romer-G switches now and the short actuation point.

Practicing Starcraft with it so I'm ready for Starcraft Remastered when its released and I really feel a difference. My APM is over 9000 now.

Logitech is doing a great job with these G Pro products.

I think I am going to return this one too. Some keycaps are still bad (rough instead of smooth on the side). Some switches are resonating too... Although I love the keyboard, for the price I paid, I expect it to be flawless.

I might try out the G413, but I dont know... I prefer TKL for gaming and I might have the same resonating issue (ping sound)

? I said some keycaps are rough on the side (poor paint job). What does it have to do with the way I type?
