Pros: Very attractive. The G213 looks the part. It looks like a much more costly gaming keyboard. If you want your desk setup to look like a higher end, RGB gaming setup, the Logitech G213 is the king. If you need a full size keyboard w/ rest, that is... I’ll explain- what this budget board has that no other board does is:
RGB backlighting and through lighting on the keys
Dedicated media keys
Braided, tangle-free cable
Sleek fit & finish that will match other products in it’s own ecosystem
That “G” logo... If that is something that you like...
Cons: Mine arrived with a defective key. I had to exchange it. While this is a budget keyboard, it still costs more than some competing budget boards, and the fitment of keys and such should be better than they are. That said, I don’t know that there is a keyboard in this class that is any better, and “lemons” are a very real thing. I’m just glad that I CAN return stuff. There is one exception to this which I will mention below.
The retail, non-sale price is steep. I got mine for about $47 on sale here on Amazon. That’s a more than fair price for an RGB, ten-key keyboard that is stylized to match other gaming gear. It “lists” for like $69. Don’t pay more than $50 for this keyboard brand new. Logitech has keyboards in it’s own line up that are far higher quality for about that much money.
The competition that you should be looking at is the Corsair K55. It is in my opinion, a higher quality budget board for about the same price. It has everything this keyboard does, albeit, the overall esthetic is not quite as good. The Corsair K55 is a gloss black plastic and it doesn’t exactly resonate with a “premium” appearance. By contrast, the Logitech G213 looks nicer than it is. It does not have braided, tangle-free cables either. In fact, I don’t think any of Corsair’s cheaper gear does, so if that bothers you like it does me, that’ll be a problem. On the other hand, the K55 has 6 “G” macro keys on the left hand side. A nice feature! The key actuation is smoother and quieter than the Logitech G213, in general, it feels better. Although, the Logitech “mech-dome” does a better job of emulating the mechanical experience. I’d say it feels a bit like their own Romer-G Tactile switches. But just a bit...
I own both of these keyboards and speak from experience. I also own a Logitech G613 and have used pretty extensively a Corsair K70 Rapidfire. That’s about as far as my expertise goes. I do a wild combination of gaming, typing, photo/video editing and ACAD designing.
I can also create macros very easily, like for key combos that I use often but have trouble executing without looking or with one hand. I can set up the function keys for all kinds of stuff.
I have a great big gaming laptop, also for the power and the big screen, and I like to watch video on it when I'm not working. The media keys on this keyboard allow me to pause, start, stop, mute, and skip without having to use a mouse or the touchpad on the built-in keyboard on the laptop.
The wrist rest actually helps these old hands, and the spill resistance means I'll actually get to keep this for a while.
Incidentally, Captain Carrot the ginger cat hates it when I put the big laptop in my lap, but right now I'm using it on the side while resting the keyboard on the cat, and he seems quite content: see?
We all have different want, needs, and likes, but for me this keyboard hit the mark.
This is one of the company's entry level gaming keyboards but I can't see why you would want to go higher up the ladder. This thing rocks.
The keys feel good, not great but fine. Overall, the keyboard is great if the price is hovering around $30 and I've seen it go that low on days like black Friday- however for any more than that there are simply better choices available.

2.Nice vibrant colors
3 Nice quality membrane keys
4. Almost everything
1. Not many lighting effects
2.COULD have been a Mechanical keyboard
Although its not mechanical, the keys feel very responsive!
The lights on the keyboard look amazing and CAN be switched off with a hardware button on the keyboard.
The software perfectly links up with my mouse (which is also Logitech!) and feels very seamless.
Fits great on the AmazonBasics Extended Gaming Mouse Pad
The wrist rest is non-removable, which is not a big deal but the material used can/will make your wrist sweaty.
For some reason, the lights on the software keep resetting (noting wrong with the hardware) and always stops when its purple which is funny.
The media keys don't work with online applications (Like YouTube!)
Overall, honestly I feel It was worth the full price too, but somehow it was on offer when I was about to order it!
++ Key spacing is okay (not bad considering my previous mechanical had a more ergonomic design).
++ Good height and surface area on the wrist wrest.
++ Surprisingly heavy, with the added advantage of staying in place more so than my last keyboard.
-- The Lock state and Game Mode lights at the top row are INSANELY BRIGHT! and there's no way to control them. It makes no sense to have fully programmable lights on everything else but not those four. I've had to cover them with narrow strips of masking tape to act as diffuser.
-- The height on the back legs is too high. For someone used to a low incline, it's best to have it just laying flat or use something else underneath to raise the board.
As for the material and design you can be rest assured that Logitech went all out with this board. Simple, but effective, yes, it does macros but there are no special separate keys designated for this, which pleases me immensely. I enjoy the simplicity of the layout. Now I bought this board for the tactile switches -- not for gaming specifically. If you want a real gamer board be prepared to pay hundreds of dollars or get ready to compromise. There are no short cuts with gamer boards in this regard no matter what retailers may tell you. There is simply NO DECENT GAMER BOARD that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars. NO, NEVER.
The Prodigy 213 is a pleasure to type on. The switches are responsive and not as hard on my fingers as typical mechanical keyboards. I've been through over a dozen keyboards under $100.00 trying to find one that suits my own personal typing needs and this one comes pretty close. It has a nice "membrane" feel to it but it is clicky enough for a fast touch typist to be pleased with the quick response from the keys. Your fingers will never beat the return on the key although at times it feels as though it will. Some of you might know what I'm talking about especially if you are familiar with certain membrane keyboards. My keyboard is not breathing, strobing, or rippling. I kept these options turned off. I don't want a discotech, I just want a good, dependable keyboard. Unfortunately I had to purchase a "gaming" style RGB keyboard to give me what I wanted. I paid for a lot of features that I will likely never use. I thoroughly enjoy the built in palm rest and at the end of the day my fingers aren't aching from all the typing I do. This is a big plus. I've gone full circle back to Logitech and only time will tell how long this board will last. It's certainly going to get a good pounding because I type... A lot. This review is subject to updates.
