The G913 and G813 are characterized by their thinness. The thin body with a height of 22 mm is made of aluminum alloy for the top case, giving it a high-grade finish.

In addition, the actuation point (the depth at which the keyboard reacts to a switch press) is 1.5 mm, 25% shorter than that of conventional mechanical keyboards, enabling quick input even with a light touch.

It is equipped with five G keys, a media controller, an edgeless volume controller, and other substantial features typical of high-end keyboards.

The G913 is openly priced, with a reference price of 30,250 JPY ( tax not included ) and23,250 JPY (tax not included) for the G813.

A choice of keystrokes to suit your preferences

Both G913 and G813 are the first to use keyswitches from Kailh, a top manufacturer of keyswitches.

Users can choose from three types of keyswitches: "Tactile", which provides a solid and accurate typing feel, "Linear", for smoother typing, and "Clicky", for a pleasant clicking sound.

The use of Kailh key switches is the key to achieving a thin profile of 22 mm (thinner than the diameter of a 100 JPY coin!). This is the key to achieving a thin profile of 22 mm (thinner than the diameter of a 100 JPY coin!).

The height of the keyboard can be adjusted from flat, 4 degrees, or 8 degrees.

The thin body eliminates the need for armrests to reduce burden.

One-touch wireless switching

The G913 offers two wireless connection options: Logitech's proprietary LIGHTSPEED wireless technology and Bluetooth® 5.0.

It is possible to connect and control multiple devices at the same time.

The G913 can be used in the workspace with LIGHTSPEED and in the living room with a tablet via Bluetooth with a single touch of a button on the top of the unit.

The operating time is 30 hours with RGB lighting on. It takes 3 hours to fully charge the battery.

Wired G813 has a USB pass-through port, so you don't have to worry about running out of ports due to USB connectivity.

Next-generation RGB lighting with LIGHTSYNC technology

The keyboard lights can be individually set from approximately 16.8 million colors. Since there is a strong need to unify the color scheme with other devices, the ability to freely change colors is now an important feature.

It can also be automatically linked to actions in games, creating a more immersive and gaming experience.

The use of the Logitech G HUB can also be used to further extend the lighting presentation.

What do top players have to say about the G813?

In addition to explaining the product, Mr. Taiga Kishi, who is currently a game caster as well as a top player reviewer, took the stage.

He spoke about his review of the G913/G813.

  • Most of the gaming keyboards on the market today have features that gamers will appreciate.

    How will they evolve in the future? The G913/G813 came on the scene just as we were wondering how they would evolve.
  • When I first saw the G913 and G813, I was skeptical.

    However, when I actually used it, I realized that it was a new keyboard that I had never touched before.
  • In e-sports, some games require instantaneous movements, and some players prefer pantograph keyboards.

    The G913/G813 has that feel, and the short keystrokes allow the user to feel a quick response when pressed. We were surprised by the responsiveness, which is not present in mechanical types.
  • We can fully recommend the G913/G813 as a high-end model and one that can meet many demands from gamers.
  • Unlike a mouse, the keyboard is fixed in place, so I thought a wired keyboard would be fine, but a wireless one keeps the desk clear and easy to clean.

    In addition, I don't have to worry about the "cabling problem" at the venue, which is a common problem for players. It is nice to be able to use it regardless of the environment.
  • We felt that the G913/G813 required some getting used to, as the key feel, etc. is different from that of a traditional mechanical type.
