Logitech Announces New PC Gaming Peripherals

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 50 comments

Logitech launched three new gaming peripherals for the PC.

If you're looking for a little love from Logitech in the gaming department, the company has added three new peripherals to its G-Series line: the Wireless Gaming Headset G930, the Wireless Gaming Mouse G700, and the Gaming Keyboard G510. All three products are currently up for purchase on Logitech's website, but are also slated to hit retail shelves soon.

The Wireless Gaming Headset G930 features "gaming-grade" wireless technology designed specifically for two-way, uncompressed audio streaming. They also provide 7.1 Dolby surround sound support, three programmable G-keys for controlling music levels, voice morphing, and chat client volumes. Memory foam keeps the headband comfortable while plush ear pads ward off any outside noise.

Logitech's Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 was designed for MMOG players while keeping FPS fans in mind. Its ergonomic design keeps the hand comfortable while 13 "precisely placed" controls offer the user plenty of customization. A full-speed wireless connection--reporting 1000 times per second--reduces lag without crippling in-game performance.

The wired peripheral in the trio--the Gaming Keyboard G510--features 18 programmable G-keys with three mode states, providing up to 54 possible macro settings per game. The built-in GamePanel LCD display renders PC performance data and real-time game stats while the keyboard's RBG backlighting (somewhat) illuminates the desktop day or night.

The Wireless Gaming Headset G930 carries a $159.99 pricetag, making it the most expensive in the bunch. The Gaming Keyboard G510 trails behind in second place, priced at $119.99. The Wireless Gaming Mouse G510 falls into third with a $99.99 pricetag.

    Way too expensive, unless you are a professional gamer. I'm not, so cut those prices in half, then we'll talk.

    Finally! Replacements for my old G7 and G15 that are actually worthy of the name! The mouse and keyboards look so good. Now they need something that can actually compete with the Belkin n52.

    Must be nice to be able to drop $380 on accessories. Having said that, more power to the folks who can get them. That mouse looks particularly interesting!

    Their G7 is excellent for gaming. I've used it for years. When my last one gave out a year ago, I couldn't find a better mouse, so I went to ebay and got a used one. Odd thing is the used ones sell for almost the original retail price of $80 and new ones in the box sell for close to $120 now. It's just that good of a mouse. The batteries are easily swappable, have an external charger, and it comes with 2 batteries, so one is always charged. (I now have 5 batteries, making for a nice stockpile of charged batteries.) There's also no lag, if you position the receiver right. It's a great mouse.

    The keyboard looks awesome and so does the mouse.. Though that many programmable buttons are massive overkill for even the hardest of the hardcore professional gamer or enthusiast.. Am not sure i'd ever opt for a wireless gaming mouse though.. I prefer the wired stuff..

    ...how is the g510 really any different from the g15 revision one? it sounds like it has exactly the same things save for the adjustable screen on the first g15.

    i mean i own the g15 r1 and unless logitech added something that they didn't list here, imo the r1 looks better with the same capabilities.

    I still like my Alienware TactX Headset, Logitech G9x, and Logitech MX5500 keyboard :)

    That new keyboard is no different than the G19.

    The new keyboard has a color lcd screen(might be limited to the backlighting color), I'm guessing a higher resolution on it as well. It also has the g110's media controls and the sound and mic plugs.

    if anything this is a true g15 v2. since really the other g15 remakes/remodels were awful compared to the g15 v1.

    Can someone please explain this to me: How can a headset with (presumably) 2 speakers (one in each ear) provide true 7.1 surround sound? I though the definition of 7.1 was 7 physical speakers surrounding the user and then one additional subwoofer. If they are talking about simulated 7.1 surround, then it should state that. But even that is weak because what makes it 7.1, or 10.1 or 1000.1 if you are only simulating surround sound? Any stereo headphones can make it sound like the sound is coming from any point around you, provided the software is well written.

    Is it just me, or are these high end gaming mice and keyboards getting more and more expensive? In other words there's no set defined price points. Every time a new high end product comes out, it's simply priced higher then its predecessor. I remember when the MX518, the highest end gaming mouse from Logitech was $45... oh wait, it's still around that price.

    I love my G15 keyboard, and this looks like nice replacement when the time comes. If only more programs took advantage of the cool LCD.

    the G15 was love at first sight for me, but the clankity keys now entrenched in dust and food residue, never made it silent-soft type friendly. I'm hoping the G510 brings silent soft taps, a-la-microsoft

    The mouse has a "Data Over Cable" option. I wonder how long that option would last if I kept them connected all the time. I don't like wireless mice.
