Logitech announces its G600 MMO Gaming Mouse

By - Source: Logitech | B 33 comments

Logitech announces its new G600 MMO Gaming Mouse, part of its G-Series gaming lineup.

The Logitech G600 MMO mouse features 20 buttons, including 12 thumb buttons, set in two groups of six on a side thumb panel. The G600 will be available in white or black, with a rated DPI of 50 to 8200, thanks to its gaming-grade laser sensor. Your DPI speed can be controlled through your user-profile, which allows you to switch between up to 5 different DPI settings.   

The G600 offers three default profiles, two for MMOs and one for general gaming. The mouse is set up for use right out of the box, no drivers required. Users have an option to download Logitech's Gaming Software to add additional tweaking ability. The G600 features the G-Shift function that doubles the number of actions you can perform with any button. As with all of the G-Series products, the keys are programmable so you can create your own commands than store them in the mouse’s onboard memory, and access them all with one touch.

The G600's thumb panel's RGB illumination is fully customizable with more than 16 million possible color combinations that users can use to identify the active on-board profile. The lighting can be set to glow continuously, pulse on and off, continuously cycle, or dim after a user-determined period of inactivity.

The Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in July 2012, for a suggested retail price of $79.99. For more information visit Logitech's website or its blog.

    damn... 80$

    i have a razor naga, how good would this be as a replacement when the razor kicks the bucket? i mean this is at the very least an alternative to the naga, but i have no idea how good it would feel in my hands.

    Its an MMO mouse... those 12 buttons are useful for some people. Not FPS thou.

    I have the Performance MX mouse which has 3 thumb buttons, I use 2 of them for gaming.

    I used to have a Razer Naga, for the first week/half-week there is a bit of a learning curve - but it becomes like second nature afterwards. Given that it's Logitech, I'm sure that it's decently made.

    If I ever get heavy back into MMOs, this might be something worth looking into.

    Logitech has better quality bigger warranty(3 years) and great customer support so i would choose this over Naga any day.

    I find a keypad works better for bots.

    I've got a G700 (4 thumb, and one next to left click button), I find them really helpful for some niche stuff, but you have to take the time to setup macros. I set up thumb 3 & 4 for rapid left click and right click, which is very nice :) 
    (They were also useful for satisfying my ElderScrolls OCD and leveling all my skills in skyrim via taping mouse buttons down)

    Not sure I could use 12 though...

    Logitech's macro software is quite nice (a little clunky, and timing isn't extremely accurate for long term stuff, but good enough).

    crisan_tiberiu12 buttons for 1 finger ^-. I have 4 buttons there and i find it sometimes to much

    And I think that really it's not a finger (as it should have 3 joints...).
    Seems complicated to use that finger for all that buttons (think I could handle 3 buttons easily...
    but to have precision it would be better to put that buttons to be operated by the index or ring fingers...

    This is great news! I have been thinking about buying the Razor Naga, but I hesitated because I have never owned a razor product. I work in the tech industry and I have used a lot of peripherals. Logitech has always been my preference when it comes to mouse and keyboard. No one comes close to their build quality and reliability.

    Already have the G700, and it does the trick. But the G600 still looks nice.

    I love my G700, it's just a fantastic mouse. This G600 however looks really ugly unlike the nice-looking G700. And although caring about what a mouse looks like sounds a bit silly, it's an important consideration if you're looking and using it everyday. Out of curiosity, what is the second mouse pictured in the article (the white one)?

    I have been using the Naga for a few days and love it. One thing I like about this Logitech mouse though is the angles of the side buttons will make it easy to press and know what you are pressing.

    I'd buy this in a heartbeat if I had confidence that Logitech used better switches on this than on their G500. Those only last about 6 months for me before I start getting phantom double-clicks. Not that I'd need all the extra buttons, I'd be perfectly happy with the G500 if they'd use better switches.

    From the pics and the description of this article i can say five possibly negative things about this mouse:
    1. It looks a little too small (something like the g9).
    2. Too many buttons for some (of course, people playing MMOs should find it more useful than me).
    3. The space used for the buttons could be invading space for the finger using the left button. (it's just an impression).
    4. I don't like the idea of going back to a wired mouse.
    5. I looks a little ugly for me (well, this impression is relative to each user).

    Well, this is just an impression, from the article and the pics. Once we see it in stores and detailed
    reviews, we will have more to say (who knows, if it gets to be really good, i could get one). For now my g700 is working very well.
