Logitech redesigns PC gaming accessories under Logitech G brand

Logitech has decided to go all out to reach the hardcore PC gaming crowd in 2013 with a relaunch of its gaming accessories products. This includes a new brand name for these devices, Logitech G, along with redesigns of several Logitech gaming mice and keyboards and two new headsets.

The press release goes over some of the changes that Logitech has made to its gaming PC mice and keyboards in terms of their construction. It states:

To improve durability and comfort, advanced surface materials were added to strategic tactile zones discovered through testing. For heavy contact zones, Logitech has added fingerprint-resistant coatings, while palm areas feature a hydrophobic coating to help keep your hands from sticking. Depending on the model, the mice also have a soft or dry grip for increased comfort and control. The two keyboards feature a double UV coating on the keys for extra durability and long life, and a fingerprint-resistant coating on the faceplate.

All of the redesigned Logitech gaming PC mice have low-friction polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) feet. Two of the redesigned mice, the Logitech G100s and the G400s, have what the company calls "exclusive Delta Zero sensor technology" that is supposed to help the mice respond better to hand movements.

The Logitech G100s mouse will cost $39.99 and the G400s mouse will have a price of $59.99. The Logitech G500s Laser Gaming Mouse will cost $69.99 and the Logitech G700s Rechargeable Gaming Mouse will cost $99.99. The Logitech G510s and the G19s Gaming Keyboards, both with LCD screens, will cost $119.99 and $199.99, respectively. The new Logitech G230 Stereo Gaming Headset and the Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset will sell for $59.99 and $79.99, respectively. These products will go on sale in the US in April.

What about a new g7 with more side buttons instead of this g700 "i need to plug my wireless mouse every ******* day" crap ?

what's so hard about that? everyone plugs thier phones in every day to charge em. Plus the G700 cable is a play-n-charge one that makes it better then using a dock.

I <3 my G700

I prefered the dock of the g7 by a lot.

I like the g700. The mouse. But i really wish it had a dock with 2 batteries like the g7.

I returned the g700 cause i did not want to have to plug my mouse everyday and i bought the Mamba instead. Totally satisfied.

Thing is if you loose your dock and the battery runs out you are SOL till you get a new one.

I like the fact the G700 has standard parts like a regular rechargable AA battery and a standard Micro-USB cable... if I loose both I can just get one from my phone and another rechargeable AA battery.

I never ever get anything that needs special stuff anymore after I lost a charger for an old phone of mine I can never get the pics off of again since it uses an odd charger I can't find anywhere and the batteries are dead. Also you feel helpless and needing to order and horde stuff for it in case something happens and waste money.

I'm so glad Logitech went this way (standard stuff) with the G700.


Also...

You can buy a Energizer rechargeable battery dock that plugs into the wall outlet that can charge AA batteries and there you resolved that. You can hot-swap as needed.

A lot of issues, the quality bulid also varies between each keyboard. But the main issue is double spaces when typing or double characters, shift doesn't work at times and it's not mechanical... And a few other issues....

Looks pretty slick, but I'm not sure I'd care for the headsets. Every Logitech mic I've owned has had issues, which is why the last one I bought from them was a standalone.

What about a new wheel to replace the G27. Way overdue for a updated wheel.
Also, where is the new version of the G930?

This guy is really friendly - he did some streaming for City of Heroes awhile back and he seemed very down to Earth.

...however, Logitech never should have killed off the G9 mice. Good lord, what were they thinking? Those mice are fantastic.
