Logitech’s G Prodigy series of peripherals and accessories is meant to offer gamer-focused gear at an affordable price tag. The company introduced the new line back in September, and has since launched several products in it, from keyboards and mice to gaming headsets. On Tuesday, the company launched the G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard and G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset in India, priced at Rs. 4,995 and Rs. 6,495 respectively. The products will become available in India from Thursday.
The highlights of the Logitech G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard are its spill-resistant design, Mech-Dome keys, and of course, the five individual lighting zones for the backlit keys with up to 16.8 million colours. It also comes with a palm rest and adjustable feet, apart from media controls. While there are no dedicated programmable keys, users can utilise the Logitech Gaming Software to add macros and more.
Getting a little more specific about the G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard, Logitech says its Mech-Dome keys combine the best of both membrane and mechanical keyboards. They provide a 4mm travel distance, and a 50g actuation force (45g tactile bump force, 55g maximum force – the same as the G810). Alongside side an anti-ghosting matrix, the G213 is said to have a report rate that is 4 times faster than the 8ms rate of standard keyboards. As for the spill-resistance, Logitech says it is rated for 60ml liquid spillage. It sports a 1.8-metre long wire.
Coming to the Logitech G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset, the headset features 40mm neodymium drivers, and is compatible with Windows PCs, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, though Logitech says some Xbox One controllers may require a separate headset adapter. The headset bears ‘high-performance’ sports mesh cloth on the earcups, meant to provide “a comfortable, soft touch even after hours of use”. The earcup covering can be washed as well.
Logitech says the G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset sports a lightweight, well-balanced design, and lay-flat earpieces that can swivel up to 90-degrees for comfort and portability. Finally, the headset also bears a folding, unidirectional mic apart from on-cable controls for muting audio and controlling volume. It bears a 2-metre cable, with two 3.5mm jacks for headphone and microphone.
The Logitech G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset has a frequency response of 20Hz-20KHz, an impedance of 32 Ohms, and a weight of 255 grams without cables.
