The new keyboard from Logitech is portable

Precise News

Logitech has announced the Pro X 60 Lightspeed, the first wireless gaming keyboard from the company to come in a compact 60 percent format.
Available through the gaming-focused Logitech G sub-brand, the keyboard is available now for $179 in a choice of two GX optical switch types (tactile or linear) and three colors (black, white, or pink).
Positioned as a compact follow-up to Logitech’s G Pro X TKL Lightspeed, the Pro X 60 includes many of the same features.
Users get three connectivity options: wired, using the included six-foot USB-C to USB-C charging cable, or wireless via Bluetooth or Logitch’s Lightspeed dongle, with the latter providing a polling rate of 1000Hz.
One key difference is that, unlike the Pro X TKL, the Pro X 60 isn’t a mechanical keyboard — it’s optical so the feel is different.
Both the GX optical linear and tactile switch options for the Pro X 60 have a 1.8mm actuation point and 4mm travel distance, with an actuation force of 50g and 60g respectively.
It also supports Logitech’s Lightsync RGB lighting, which is pre-programmed to a static blue out of the box to reduce distractions but can be customized to allow your choice of color and lighting sequences to shine through the Pro X 60’s dual-shot PBT keycaps.
Battery life when connected via wireless Lightspeed with lighting enabled is around 65 hours on a full charge.

The first wireless gaming keyboard from Logitech to be available in a small 60% form factor is the Pro X 60 Lightspeed. The keyboard, which comes in three colors (pink, white, or black) and two GX optical switch types (tactile or linear), is currently available for $179 through the gaming-focused Logitech G sub-brand.

The Pro X 60 is positioned as a more compact version of Logitech’s G Pro X TKL Lightspeed, and it shares many of its features. Users are offered three options for connectivity: Bluetooth or Logitch’s Lightspeed dongle, which offers a 1000Hz polling rate, or wired using the six-foot USB-C to USB-C charging cable that is included.

The Pro X 60 differs significantly from the Pro X TKL in that it is an optical keyboard instead of a mechanical one, which gives it a different feel. Hot-swappable switches are not available on either keyboard. With an actuation force of 50g and 60g, respectively, the GX optical linear and tactile switch options for the Pro X 60 have a 1point 8mm actuation point and a 4mm travel distance.

With the new Keycontrol tool in Logitech’s G Hub software, you can further customize things like assigning macro shortcuts, lighting, and audio effects. Key re-mapping allows you to give each key up to 15 different functions. Additionally, it works with Logitech’s Lightsync RGB lighting, which can be adjusted to shine through the dual-shot PBT keycaps of the Pro X 60 in your preferred color and lighting sequence. Lightsync RGB lighting is pre-programmed to a static blue out of the box to reduce distractions. Around 65 hours of battery life are possible when using wireless Lightspeed connectivity and turning on the lights.

A few other quality-of-life features of the Logitech G Pro X 60 include a carry case for portability, a volume roller that is easily accessible when fingers are placed over the WASD keys, and a Game Mode switch on the side that eliminates distracting keys like the Windows key. If you’re into competitive gaming and travel a lot, this will be much easier to fit into a bag than a full-layout keyboard because it has all these features and customizations in such a small package.
