The Logitech G Pro X looks exactly like the old G pro keyboard that was released in 2017. And given that the G pro X keyboard is the latest addition to Logitech’s series of esports-oriented pro series, and I’m slightly disappointed that not much has changed in terms of design.

After all, it would have been nice to have a fresh, new look to commemorate Logitech finally leaving its Romer-G switches behind. This new keyboard now sports hot-swappable switches so you can easily pluck out a switch and change it to any other cherry MXstyle switch.

Fortunately, The G pro X’s chassis has aged pretty well, and it still looks quite good. That’s no doubt due to its minimalist design and clean lines. Logitech hasn’t bothered with an additional row of macro keys or anything like that. However, if you really need programmable macros, the entire function row can be programmed in the Logitech G Hub software. Furthermore, if you turn on the G-Shift toggle, you can assign an additional layer of commands to the F1 to F12 keys, effectively giving you a total of 24 keys to customise.

What Should You Know About Cloud Security Solutions?

First, let’s explain exactly what the cloud is, and how it relates to digital security. Intuitively, some people believe that “cloud” storage means your data is being held in the air somehow, but this isn’t really the case. Instead, most cloud applications store data on physical servers, in datacentres around the globe. Your data is stored remotely, and provided to you upon request.
