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.
