Cooler Master MM710 Honeycomb Gaming Mouse Revealed!

Cooler Master just unveiled the MM710 lightweight gaming mouse that features a unique honeycomb shell design!

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the new Cooler Master MM710 gaming mouse!

 

The Cooler Master MM710 Gaming Mouse

Thanks to its honeycomb shell, the MM710 is Cooler Master’s lightest mouse – weighing just 53 grams! It is further paired with an ultra-light braided cable.

The light weight of the Cooler Master MM710 allows for quicker movements, and less fatigue and wrist pain during long gaming sessions.

Lightweight Honeycomb Design + Ultraweave Cable

The Cooler Master MM710 features a new, perforated honeycomb shell that reduces its weight to less than 53 grams. This also necessitates a redesign of its internal components, to increase durability and reduce flex on the mouse sides.

It is paired with a durable and light Ultraweave cable to reduce cable pull while swiping. They both allow for faster movements while reducing fatigue during long gaming sessions.

PixArt PMW3389 Optical Sensor + Omron Switches

The Cooler Master MM710 features the PixArt PMW3389 optical sensor, which supports up to 16,000 DPI.

Paired with a 32-bit ARM processor, the mouse is fully customisable via software – sensor sensitivity, button response time, surface tuning, lift-off distance, polling rate and more!

For greater durability, its left and right buttons use Omron switches that are rated for 20 million presses.

Superior PTFE Mouse Feet + Ambidextrous Design

The Cooler Master MM710 features an ambidextrous design, with a slight hump to provide extra palm support for gamers who prefer the claw grip.

It is also small enough to fingertip for most hand sizes, while allowing smaller hands to use the palm grip.

For a low-friction, consistent glide, its feet use 95% pure PTFE that is significantly better than the standard mouse feet.

 

Cooler Master MM710 Price + Availability

The Cooler Master MM710 is available with immediate effect, at these recommended retail prices :

The Alienware Elite Gaming Mouse Revealed!

Alienware knows even something as small as a mouse can have a huge impact on gameplay. The new Alienware Elite Gaming Mouse sports more than just the iconic Alienware design with premium materials.

The Alienware Elite Gaming Mouse was designed to put more control in gamers’ hands, while allowing them to play longer with advanced ergonomic engineering.

2018 Dell State Of Gaming Report

An extensive survey of 5,763 video game players in 11 countries, commissioned by Dell, revealed that today’s gamers are quite diverse; from a coworker with two kids, to the woman next to you at the gym, or, most commonly, a spouse, sibling or friend.

Through online platforms and social media, and fueled by the popularity of esports, the gaming community is ever-expanding while also growing in diversity and inclusiveness.

Gone are the days that being called a “gamer” is derogatory. According to those surveyed, fewer than one in 10 feel either “judged,” “childish” or “embarrassed” being called a “gamer” (8-9% each).

[adrotate group=”2″]

Instead,they consider “gamer” a positive label and feel “fun” (35%), “cool” (29%), or “excited” (26%) as a result.While some gamers are willing to self-sacrifice to continue gaming, the majority are well-rounded with interests in music, sports, traveling and socialising.

The gaming community has also become less of a “boy’s club,” with only 14% of gamers globally concerned about the gender of their rivals.

In general, gamers are welcoming to whomever is behind the computer. When it comes to being matched with rival gamers, culture/ethnicity (8%), political views (7%), and sexual orientation (6%) are for the most part inconsequential to a player. What matters most is the other gamer’s skill level (40%).

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum is a rather large mouse, designed for right-handed users with large hands. It feels comfortable even in my smaller hand. However, one of the side buttons was out of reach. More on this later.

It has a nice curved thumb rest which doubles as a latch for the weight-tuning system (we have special section on this later in the review), and a full body for proper palm support. This may not matter though if you prefer the finger grip style of holding the mouse.

In case you are wondering, it is only available in one colour – black. The top surfaces are all matte-finished to prevent unsightly fingerprint smears. It also has textured rubber strips on both sides for better grip.

PMW3366 IR Sensor

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum mouse uses an IR sensor, instead of a laser sensor. This may seem like a downgrade but professional gamers will tell you – IR sensors actually deliver better precision and sensitivity than laser sensors, especially on textured surfaces.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum uses the much-vaunted PMW3366 IR sensor, which supports resolutions from 200 DPI all the way to 12,000 DPI. But ignore that upper number – no one will actually use that. What’s really important about this sensor is its precision and sensitivity.

In those aspects, the PMW3366 optical sensor really rocks – it was both sensitive and precise. Sensitivity is critical in gaming because you want your every move to register, even the slightest move. Precision is also important because you want your move to be precisely tracked so that it registers exactly in the game, or application you are using.

That said, please note that the PMW3366 sensor will not work with glass or highly glossy surfaces, unlike the Logitech MX Anywhere 2‘s Darkfield laser sensor. This isn’t really a problem because you can easily “fix” it with a proper mouse pad, or even a piece of paper.

 

Scroll Wheel & Buttons

Although Logitech claims that the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum has 11 programmable buttons, there are really just 9 programmable buttons. To make it a little more confusing, there are actually 10 buttons on this mouse, but one isn’t programmable while the scroll wheel can be programmed for 3 functions. That’s how you get 11 programmable “buttons” – 8 physical buttons that are programmable + 1 scroll wheel that can be programmed for 3 different functions.

 

Button Default Setting Button Default Setting
1 Left Click 6 Back
2 DPI Up 7 Right Click
3 DPI Down 8 Left Scroll, Middle Click, Right Scroll
4 DPI Shift 9 Scroll Mode Switch
5 Forward 10 Profile Switch

Pressing on the Scroll Mode Switch (Button #8) switches the scroll wheel between these two modes :

  • a “hyperfast scrolling mode” – smooth and quiet scrolling but lacks tactile feedback, and
  • a “click-to-click scrolling mode” – the typical ratcheted mode which precise but “noisy”.

We found the scroll wheel to be too loose in the hyperfast scrolling mode. A flick will send the screen scrolling far beyond what we would expect. The ratcheted mode is far better. The only downside – it is quite noisy if you scroll rapidly.

Note that smaller hands may find it hard to reach the DPI Shift button (#4).

Glide Performance & Stability

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum is supported by four asymmetric pads of what appears to be UHMWPE (Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene), also known as UPE.

The traditional PTFE (commonly known by its trade name of Teflon) is slicker and gives a smoother glide, but is also more expensive and less durable. It is also hard to differentiate the gliding performance of UPE against PTFE. So we are not surprised to see UPE being used in the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum.

What’s more important to us is the stability of the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. We are glad to report that it was very stable. Nothing irritates us more than a mouse that “rocks”. It’s pointless for a mouse to use PTFE feet for a smoother glide if it’s so unstable that it rocks as you move it.

Weight Tuning System

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum has an all-plastic chassis and weighs just 121 grams / 4.3 ounces (without the cable). That might be too light for some gamers, so Logitech included a weight tuning system. This comprises of a plastic case with 5 metal weights and a weight tuning chamber hidden inside the G502 Proteus Spectrum.

Watch this video to see how the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum‘s weight tuning system works. Please ignore the typo about 6 weights. There are only 5 weights.

Each metal weight weighs 3.6 grams (0.13 ounces), so you can adjust the weight of the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum by up to 18 grams / 0.65 ounces (15%). The hexagonal design of the weight tuning system is quite clever, allowing Logitech to arrange them around the sensor, in a simple chamber covered by a single magnetically-locked cover.

 

USB Cable

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum uses a USB cable, instead of a wireless connection. The USB cable is 183 cm (6 feet) long, which is fantastic for desktops but a handful for laptops. The USB cable is braided for strength and durability. The cable joint is also protected by a hard plastic sleeve and the two main mouse buttons.

The USB cable allows the G502 Proteus Spectrum to achieve a higher polling rate of 1,000 Hz. Wireless mice, on other hand, maxes out at 500 Hz. That is a difference of response time of 1 ms vs. 2 ms. Of course, whether you can really tell the difference in real world usage is another matter.

What will really matter a lot is the fact that a USB connection will never suffer from interference, which can happen to wireless mice, due to nearby USB drives or other wireless devices.

[adrotate banner=”5″]

 

Logitech Gaming Software

The Logitech Gaming Software is not necessary to use the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. However, it is highly recommended because it allows you to make full use of the G502 Proteus Spectrum‘s built-in features.

In the Home section, you get to switch between using the 3 profiles stored in the mouse’s onboard memory, or the profiles Logitech created for different games. Enabling Automatic Game Detection will allow you to scan for games in your computer, and assign preset profiles to use with the G502 Proteus Spectrum.

The profiles offer a variety of customisation options. You can change the functions of the 8 programmable buttons, adjust the DPI sensitivity levels, polling rate and even the colour of the RGB lights using up to 3 profiles.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum comes with two presets which fine-tunes it for the Logitech G440 hard gaming mouse pad, and the Logitech G240 soft gaming mouse pad. However, you can fine-tune the G502 Proteus Spectrum for any surface by adding a new surface and clicking on the Tune option. Very nifty!

Finally, the Logitech Gaming Software comes with a “recording feature” which they call Input Analysis. Basically, it allows you to log your key presses so you can find out which keys / buttons you pressed the most or longest during a gaming session.

Our Verdict

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum was designed with one goal in mind – desktop gaming. It is a full-sized mouse that offers a lot of palm support, and comes a nice braided USB cable that is 6 feet long. The PMW3366 IR sensor it uses cannot handle glass or glossy surfaces, but on regular desktop surfaces, it is precise and sensitive.

It also offers a ton of customisation features. You can customise the 9 programmable buttons for 11 functions, or the built-in LED lighting that supports up to 16.8 million colours. And like many gaming mice, you can change its sensitivity and polling speeds.

The Logitech Gaming Software it comes with is essential to accessing all those customisation features. It also allows you to fine-tune the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum for different table or mouse pad surfaces. Everything you need to adjust the mouse to your exacting needs.

Some may gripe about its plastic build but it doesn’t rattle or creak. In fact, it feels really solid and more importantly – stable. Gamers who find the G502 Proteus Spectrum a little on the light side can use its weight tuning system to beef it up a bit.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

We are not sure how popular RGB LED illumination is to you, but those who enjoy showing off their gaming PCs will love the fact that it allows them to choose from up to 16.8 million colours. Even better, they can sync the light and colour patterns with other Logitech G devices.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum also comes with a scroll wheel that not only supports vertical and horizontal scrolling, but can also switch between ratcheted and smooth scrolling modes. Just press the small button next to the scroll wheel to switch modes – it can’t be any faster or simpler than that! Unfortunately, the scroll wheel had too much inertia in its smooth scrolling mode, and was quite noisy in its ratcheted mode.

Other than the fact that smaller hands may find it hard to reach the DPI Shift button, we really enjoyed gaming with the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum. It is therefore our pleasure to award it with our Reviewer’s Choice Award. Congratulations, Logitech!

Logitech Poll : Malaysians Prefer Wireless Products

Kuala Lumpur, 21 July 2016 — The best computing peripherals come with no strings attached. This was the sentiment received when Logitech Malaysia ran their recent ‘Gadget Obsessed’ online poll. Conducted via the brand’s Facebook page, the poll received 50 respondents, with a split between 26% females and 71% males. The poll was made up of questions designed to gather crucial data that will help Logitech better understand the ever-changing needs of Malaysian consumers.

This technological era is moving at a speedy pace and it is vital to constantly upgrade ourselves with knowledge to keep up. As a brand that focuses on innovation and quality, Logitech studies how consumers use their digital devices, and these observations are used to assist the company’s designers and engineers in creating a better experience with these devices.

“At Logitech, we are always looking to create products that matter to users. The poll brings us a step closer towards providing even more consumer-centric products to meet our consumers’ needs,” said KP Sim, Logitech Country Manager of Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei.

The female respondents listed features such as portability (89% votes), wireless (78% votes), battery life (78% votes), wireless connectivity range (67% votes) and ergonomics (67% votes) as their top five priorities when choosing a keyboard. Meanwhile, male respondents’ top five priorities were wireless (88% votes), battery life (75% votes), ergonomics (63% votes), aesthetics (58% votes) and value for money (58% votes).

KP Sim explains that the consumers’ preference towards the Logitech K780’s unique multi-device keyboard stems from its ability to seamlessly connect and control up to three devices. At a touch of a button, users can link and switch between their computer, tablet and mobile phone which enhances flexibility and productivity. On the other hand, respondents who are looking for a simple, day-to-day keyboard have mentioned the Logitech MK235 wireless keyboard and mouse combo as a reliable everyday device, its familiar keyboard layout with number pads being a winning factor.

[adrotate banner=”5″]

On mice purchase decisions, there seems to be a match between gamers and non-gamers. Collectively, both groups prioritized wireless connectivity (91% votes), battery life (73% votes), and responsiveness and speed (68% votes) over other features such as size, aesthetics and surface tracking capability.

The minor distinction in their order of preferences can be attributed to the respondents’ inclination towards peak efficiency. The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum gaming mouse, for instance, is a wireless, power efficient mouse that provides exceptional tracking accuracy for flawless gaming, while the recently launched Party Collection M238 appeals to the non-gaming community with its quirky but fun designs and boasts a wireless range of up to 10 meters, coupled with advanced optical tracking.

“The rising demand for Internet and mobile devices has changed the way Malaysians live, work and play, while hyper-connectivity has also altered consumers’ preference when it comes to choosing products that offer the best experience online and offline. Using the correct device with appropriate functions is crucial in ensuring daily activities can be carried out smoothly and productively, no matter the place or time. Primarily, this is a commitment that Logitech will continue to keep with its users and fans in the country,” ends Sim.

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Gaming Mouse Launched

March 24, 2016 — Logitech today announced its best gaming mouse yet, the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum. The new professional-grade wireless gaming mouse features industry-leading wireless technology, an advanced optical gaming sensor, a flexible ambidextrous design, customizable lighting, mechanical pivot button design and lightweight construction, for maximum performance and comfort over long gameplay sessions.

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum delivers a lag-free wireless performance and long battery life that’s trusted by professional eSports gamers.

“We talked with eSports pros and none of them love the cable on a wired mouse,” said KP Sim, Logitech Country Manager of Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei. “They wish they had the freedom of wireless but the performance and reliability of a wired mouse. So that was the design goal we gave our engineers, to build a wireless gaming mouse that was faster than the competition’s wired gaming mice. G900 delivers on this promise, and we’re confident it’s the best gaming mouse we’ve ever built.”

 

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Key Features

Professional Grade Wireless Technology
With a one-millisecond report rate, and highly optimized 2.4GHz wireless connection, the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum outperforms both wireless and wired competitors. Thanks in part to the exclusive clock-tuning technology that significantly reduces power consumption, you can play continuously for 32 hours — an entire competition weekend — on a single charge (24 hours with default lighting). When you’re running low on power, the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) Battery Assistant will notify you. There’s no need to stop playing to recharge as the mouse seamlessly switches between wireless and wired modes when plugged in. Since a full charge from empty only takes about two hours, you’re never attached to the cord for long.

Most Accurate Optical Gaming Sensor
The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum features the PMW3366, Logitech’s state-of-the-art optical gaming sensor with our exclusive clock-tuning technology. Widely accepted by enthusiasts and professionals as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market, the PMW3366 precisely interprets every hand movement onto the screen for smooth, responsive performance, even at high sensitivity. It has zero smoothing or filtering across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI), delivering exceptional tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness at any speed.

Fully Customizable to Fit Your Hand and Style
The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum gives you the freedom to configure your mouse exactly to your preferences. Going beyond ambidextrous, the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum can be transformed into a truly left- or right-handed mouse, using the included magnetic button covers. The mouse is constructed for a non-prescriptive grip that accommodates a variety of palm, claw and fingertip holds. Using LGS, lighting color and brightness can be programmed to match your style, system and environment from a palette of up to 16.8 million colors. Bring your mouse to life with “breathing” light patterns, or set your lighting to sleep when you aren’t using your system.

Mechanical Pivot Button Design
The buttons of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum have been engineered to deliver a crisp, clean click feel with rapid click. A metal spring tensioning system and exclusive mechanical pivoting hinges are built into the main left and right keys. This system reduces the pre-travel distance between the buttons and switches, while also minimizing the force required to click, enabling faster recovery after each click. The result is a heightened response and a consistently fast, accurate and reliable click performance.

Precisely Engineered Lightweight Construction
Every component of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum has been optimized to reduce weight while maintaining stability. All elements of the construction have been analyzed and adjusted to remove fractions of grams, from the thin wall molding to the hollow “spoked” hyper-fast scroll wheel design. The result is a wireless gaming mouse that weighs in at 107g, making it comfortable to use over long periods and delivering quicker response to motion.

Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse Launched

Jan. 6, 2016 — Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced the introduction of the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse (Lowest Price). By adding RGB customizable lighting the Logitech G502 Proteus Core, the world’s best selling gaming mouse just got even better. The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum still retains the world’s best DPI sensor, advanced surface and weight tuning, but now gives you even more features to elevate your game and style.

“The G502 Proteus Spectrum has an amazing sensor, and now it’s got customizable lighting as well, said KP Sim, Logitech Country Manager of Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei. “You can also sync it with your other RGB-enabled Logitech G gaming gear to create some really cool effects.”

 

RGB Customizable Lighting

Match your style and environment by adjusting up to 16.8 million colors and brightness, using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). Bring your mouse to life with breathing light patterns, or set your lighting to continuously cycle through the color spectrum. The lighting can also be synchronized with Logitech G’s other RGB products.

 

Accurate and Responsive Optical Sensor

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse (Lowest Price) features Logitech’s most powerful and accurate optical sensor, the PMW3366, for maximum performance and tracking accuracy and the exclusive Logitech G Delta Zero optical sensor technology that increases reliable targeting. The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse (Lowest Price) also features a huge DPI range of 200 to 12,000 with zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering and zero pixel rounding.

 

Tunable Balance, Buttons, Surface and Weight

Personal tweaks make all the difference. For a mouse that feels just right for you, adjust the weight and center of balance through the placement of up to five 3.6g weights in the mouse. You can also easily reassign any command or macro to one of the 11 programmable buttons, using LGS.

And for optimal performance, calibrate the sensor against a gaming surface’s physical and reflective characteristics. Surface tuning optimizes the sensor dynamic range to match the properties of the mouse surface, which results in maximum high-speed performance and lower lift-off distance.

 

Comfortable Shape

The textured rubber grips and a convenient button layout ensure great feel and performance from your first encounter with the mouse. Additionally, the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse (Lowest Price) includes individual left and right buttons that provide a rigid and stable platform, resulting in precise, durable and satisfying clicks. Mechanical micro-switches under each button further enhance feel, speed and accuracy. And, a dual-mode hyper-fast scroll wheel offers enhanced click-to-click precision and lightning-fast scrolling for the Web.
