Logitech Purchases ASTRO Gaming For US$85 Million!

July 13, 2017 ​— Logitech International (SIX: LOGN) (Nasdaq: LOGI) today announced that it has agreed to acquire ASTRO Gaming for US$ 85 million.

 

Logitech And ASTRO Gaming

ASTRO Gaming is a console gaming brand with a history of producing award-winning headsets for professional gamers and enthusiasts. This acquisition will make Logitech the number one maker of headsets, mice, keyboards and streaming webcams for PC and console gamers.

“ASTRO is the leading player for premium console headsets and is the preferred headset for console eSports athletes,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech G. “It’s a perfect complement to Logitech G’s focus on PC gaming and we couldn’t be more excited; we love the team, the brand and the products. Together, we want to make game play even more fun for gamers everywhere.”

Jordan Reiss, co-founder and president of ASTRO, added, “The whole team at ASTRO has always held Logitech and Logitech G products in the highest regard, so I’m ecstatic we are joining forces. ASTRO’s brand strength combined with Logitech G’s unrivalled technology and global distribution network is going to bring our products to even more gamers around the world.”

ASTRO is a pioneer in gaming audio and lifestyle products and has a strong leadership position in the premium end of the global console gaming headset market. ASTRO is best known for its iconic A40 and A50 headsets designed for pro gamers and core enthusiasts. ASTRO’s recently introduced A10 expands the company’s reach in the console headset market, offering the essence of what makes their headsets premium, but at a more broadly accessible price point.

Expected impact on financial results for FY 2018

Logitech will purchase ASTRO for $85 million in cash, and the acquisition is expected to close in early August. With the addition of ASTRO, Logitech is investing in an adjacent gaming market — the console gaming market — to help accelerate the long-term growth of their gaming business.

In FY 2018, Logitech expects the acquisition of ASTRO to add approximately two points of growth to the top line, and to be slightly dilutive to the bottom line in the first year, as they integrate the business and invest to expand ASTRO internationally.

The Logitech MeetUp Live Demo & Hands-On Look

On 22 June 2017, Logitech invited us to an exclusive live demo of the new Logitech MeetUp premier ConferenceCam conducted across four different countries. We were also given the opportunity for some hands-on time with the Logitech MeetUp. Join us for this exclusive live demo session, and check out our hands-on look, of this new ConferenceCam designed for small conference rooms or huddle rooms.

 

The Logitech MeetUp Live Demo

Unlike typical press conferences and tech briefings, Logitech conducted this live demo of Logitech MeetUp (Lowest Price) across four different countries to showcase its abilities. Note that they were not conducted in 4K resolution (more on this later), due to software and bandwidth limitations.

Here are the Logitech MeetUp’s key features :

  • Super-Wide 120° Field of View: MeetUp offers the widest field of view of any Logitech video conferencing solution, without any fisheye lens distortion. This allows everyone in the room to be seen on-screen, even those close to the camera or seated at the edges of the room.
  • 3-Microphones and Custom-Tuned Speaker: Three broadside beamforming, omnidirectional microphones with noise and echo cancellation – plus a custom-tuned speaker – are specifically optimized for voice clarity in small conference rooms. The microphones are Microsoft Cortana-certified for voice command precision with any Windows 10 system. An optional expansion microphone increases conversational radius even further in larger rooms.[adrotate banner=”4″]
  • All-In-One Design: MeetUp’s compact, all-in-one form factor saves space and minimizes cable clutter.
  • Razor-Sharp Optics: Advanced Logitech lens technology delivers remarkable, distortion-free video quality with superb resolution, speed, fluidity, color balance, and detail.
  • Motorized Pan/Tilt with Optical Zoom: The motorized lens smoothly pans and tilts, expanding the total field of view to 170° by 105°, while a 5X optical zoom lets you focus on participants and whiteboards with razor-sharp clarity.
  • RF Remote Control: MeetUp’s paired remote control lets you adjust audio and camera settings from anywhere in the room, even without line-of-sight.
  • Ultra HD 4K Image Sensor: Supports multiple resolutions, including 4K (Ultra HD), 1080p (Full HD) and 720p (HD) to best support the quality offered by your application and monitor.

 

The Logitech MeetUp Hands-On Look

The Logitech MeetUp (Lowest Price) is a compact all-in-one video conferencing solution. It combines an ultra-wide camera with three beam-forming microphones and a voice-optimised speaker. In addition, the camera has motorised pan and tilt capabilities, and even 5X optical zoom.

The Logitech MeetUp (Lowest Price) is designed for huddle rooms. In larger conference rooms, you can attach an expansion microphone for greater reach. Its remote control uses radio-frequency, instead of infra-red, allowing you to control it even without line-of-sight.

There are some caveats we must point out though :

  • The Logitech MeetUp (Lowest Price) is a hardware solution, and does not come with any video conferencing software. You are free to use any video conferencing service like Skype or WebEx,
  • MeetUp requires additional hardware to operate, specifically a host PC. You can hook it up to a desktop, a laptop or even a NUC.
  • Logitech MeetUp (Lowest Price) has an Ultra HD 4K-capable camera for future-proofing. That capability requires a video conferencing service that is 4K capable, and a USB 3.0 cable. MeetUp currently ships only with a USB 2.0 cable, and is therefore not capable of supporting 4K video streaming.
  • The external microphone port is proprietary and can only be used with the official MeetUp external microphone.

 

Price & Availability

The Logitech MeetUp (Lowest Price) will be available for sale in late July 2017 at the following prices (for ASEAN countries) :

  • Singapore : SGD 1,529 for MeetUp, and SGD 375 for the optional external microphone
  • Thailand : THB 37,900 for MeetUp, and THB 9,199 for the optional external microphone
  • Malaysia : MYR 4,799 for MeetUp, and MYR 1,169 for the optional external microphone
  • Philippines : PHP 56,500 for MeetUp, and PHP 13,500 for the optional external microphone

You can also buy it from Amazon at US$ 899 for MeetUp, and US$ 1,079 for MeetUp with the optional external microphone.

Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse Review

Logitech is a Swiss company with a long history of producing some of the best accessories for the PC. They started with the computer mouse, and naturally diversified into keyboards, webcams and speakers. Today, we will take a look at the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum gaming mouse.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum replaces the Logitech G502 Proteus Core, its predecessor. It is an evolutionary upgrade of the Proteus Core mouse with customisable RGB illumination. Let’s check it out!

Originally posted @ 2016-03-03

Updated @ 2017-01-15 : Corrected references to 6 weights. There are only 5 weights. Updated other aspects of the review.

 

Unboxing The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum comes in a very nice cardboard box with full colour printing. You will find its key performance characteristics listed on the right side of the box, and its contents and requirements on the left side. The back of the box has a nice top view of the G502 Proteus Spectrum together with its key features.

Join us as we unbox the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum in this video. Please ignore the typo about six metal weights. There are only five weights.

Once you unpack everything, you will find the following items :

  • One Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum gaming mouse
  • One Logitech G502 tuning weight case with 5 weights (3.6 g each) inside (please ignore the typo in the video above)
  • One Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum manual
  • One Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Safety Compliance and Warranty leaflet
[adrotate banner=”5″]

 

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum

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).

[adrotate banner=”5″]

 

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!

With a free, over-the-air update to the existing UE BOOM and UE MEGABOOM apps, you can easily see, select, drag and drop available speakers to join the party in just seconds. From Siri and Google Now voice integration to Tap Controls, UE has added a host of additional features, continually unlocking experiences for music fans.

Logitech G102 Prodigy Gaming Mouse Launched

27 October 2016 — Today, Logitech announced the Logitech G102 Prodigy Gaming Mouse – the latest addition to its Prodigy Series. Featuring a new gaming sensor manufactured in Switzerland, the G102 Prodigy delivers class-leading performance with up to 6000 DPI. It also features gaming-grade technologies including advanced button tensioning, onboard memory, and RGB lighting in a comfortable, durable and lightweight design.

“We’re committed to offering the best technology at every price point,” said KP Sim, Logitech Country Manager of Malaysia, Philippines and Brunei. “Building on the legacy of our hugely popular G100s in Asia, we carefully improved the design, while challenging our engineers to develop a new sensor that delivers game-changing performance at an incredible value.”

New Swiss-Made Gaming Sensor

Consistent, pixel-precise accuracy makes a critical difference in gameplay. The Logitech G102 features a new gaming sensor manufactured in Switzerland that delivers exceptional tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness at any speed across its entire DPI range (200-6,000 DPI).

Classic Design

G102 is inspired by the classic lines and simple construction of the legendary Logitech G100s Gaming Mouse. Beloved by gamers worldwide and a favorite of eSports pros, it’s a familiar design we have reimagined and optimized from the inside-out for versatility, durability and comfort for everyday use.

Gaming-Grade Performance

[adrotate banner=”4″]

G102 Prodigy communicates over USB at up to 1000 reports per second – or 8 times faster than standard mice. This means when the mouse is moved or clicked, the on-screen response is near-instantaneous. Advanced button tensioning keeps the left and right mouse buttons primed to click, reducing the force needed to click and delivering exceptional click feel, response and consistency.

Programmable Lighting, Buttons and DPI

The Logitech G102 Prodigy Gaming Mouse can be used directly out-of-the-box, or can be fully configured using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). Choose from a palette of up to 16.8 million colors and different brightness levels to match your style, system or environment. Advanced users can configure any of the 6 buttons to simplify in-game actions.

On-the-fly DPI shifting lets you switch between up to four sensitivity settings, from a pixel-precise 200 DPI for sniping to a lightning-fast 6000 DPI. Save your preferences to the onboard memory on the mouse and use it on any PC you take it to with no need to install software or reconfigure your settings on the new PC with LGS.

 

Logitech G102 Prodigy Gaming Mouse Pricing and Availability

The Logitech G102 Prodigy Gaming Mouse is expected to be available in Malaysia in November for a suggested retail price of RM98 / ~US$25 (inclusive of GST), from MCL Berhad and M-Link System.

Additionally, the dedicated media controls allow you to play, pause, skip and adjust the volume of your music with a touch of a button, without having to switch out of the game.

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.

Kuala Lumpur, 29 June 2016 — Today, Logitech announced the Logitech K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard, the first fully-equipped computer keyboard with a 10-key pad that also works with smartphones and tablets.

The K780 Multi-Device offers quiet and responsive typing. The keys are large and carefully scooped for typing comfort and precision, while a convenient 10-key pad makes it easy to enter numbers. An integrated rubber slot with a soft finish securely cradles a variety of mobile devices at a perfect reading angle, from smartphones to the 12” iPad ProTM. The keyboard is slim and solidly built, designed to look good in a modern home or office environment.

Logitech K780 Multi-Device adapts to your devices, so whether you are using a Windows PC or iPhone, the key layout is familiar and you can even access your favorite shortcuts. With both a Logitech Unifying USB and Bluetooth Smart technology, you can choose the best way to connect to your computer, phone or tablet.

With a power-saving idle mode and an on/off switch, the K780 Multi-Device offers up to 24-months of battery life – plenty of time to get used to a new way of multi-tasking, by typing on all your devices with a single keyboard.

Logitech GROUP Video Conferencing System Launched

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia. Apr. 5, 2016 — Today Logitech announced a transformation in team collaboration. Logitech GROUP provides crystal-clear audio and high-quality HD video conferencing for groups of up to 14 people, or up to 20 with the optional expansion microphones.

 

The Logitech GROUP Video Conferencing System

Logitech GROUP is affordable and enables organizations to use the same room system configuration for whichever unified communications, web conferencing or video conferencing application you already use. The solution deploys in minutes and is simple to use, allowing any meeting space to be a flexible multi-use video collaboration space.

“Until now, people looking to collaborate over video were faced with a choice between installing high priced purpose-built systems or crowding around a laptop that’s placed at the end of a table. This resulted in a poor experience with coworkers packed together like sardines or falling out of the frame,” said KP Sim, Logitech Country Manager for Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines. “Logitech GROUP provides the best of both worlds, an affordable solution optimized for large rooms with a wide field of view and crystal clear audio quality. Plus, it works with virtually any UC or video collaboration software and is so easy to use that you don’t need IT support to help get your meeting started.”

“Traditional video conferencing systems are no longer the only option for enterprises. We see an expanding variety of category-defying solutions using audio video peripherals in the meeting room to connect to a PC or mobile device,” said Andrew W. Davis, senior partner at Wainhouse Research. “This fast-growing class of easy-to-use and low-cost solutions is creating a new market that traditional solutions could never reach. With its ConferenceCam portfolio, Logitech has a strong leadership position in this emerging market.”

[adrotate group=”2″]

Logitech GROUP, the successor to Logitech’s popular ConferenceCam CC3000e, has a full-duplex, sleek speakerphone delivering sound that is crisp, clear, and can be heard by everyone in the meeting. Its metal case helps improve acoustic performance, and by isolating the microphone and speaker it provides premium audio quality. The combination of four omnidirectional microphones, acoustic echo and noise-cancelling technology delivers conversational realism. Conference participants can converse within a 20-foot diameter around the base, or extend the range to 28-feet with optional expansion microphones. It can also be used with a Bluetooth® enabled mobile devices for audio calls.

The 1080p video quality brings full HD video to conference calls, enabling meeting participants to clearly read expressions, non-verbal cues and movements. A wide 90-degree field of view and smooth pan and tilt controls enhance collaboration by making it easy to see everyone in the room. On-board H.264 with scalable video coding frees up bandwidth by putting video processing within the camera, resulting in a smoother video stream. And the 10x lossless HD zoom allows participants to zero in on close-ups of objects and whiteboard content with outstanding detail and clarity.

GROUP helps businesses facilitate collaboration between distributed workforces with certified software applications (Optimized for Microsoft Lync 2013, Certified for Skype for Business, Cisco Jabber and WebEx compatible) and enhanced integration with Logitech Collaboration Program members, ensuring a seamless experience with virtually all video conferencing platforms. GROUP works with any computing device with a USB connection (PC, MAC or Chromebook).

Logitech GROUP can be seen in public for the first time at ISE 2016, February 9-12, in booth #9-B125.

 

Pricing and Availability

Logitech GROUP is already available from MCL Berhad and M-Link System (M) Sdn. Bhd at a suggested retail price of RM 5,500 / ~US$ 1375. The expansion microphones will be available for RM 1,490 / ~US$ 373. Both prices are inclusive of 6% GST.

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 Pitches The Couch This Valentine’s Day

Most girls probably envision a night out, a romantic dinner followed by a dance, drinks and a kiss. Maybe more. But Logitech feels that some girls will probably want to skip the roses and chocolates to join their beaus on the couch this Valentine’s Day. Or maybe it’s the guy’s turn this Valentine’s Day!

To help you, the poor guy/girl who has to figure out what to do this Valentine’s Day, Logitech created a list of Logitech products to buy for the love of your life. Check it out below, and let us how well it works out for you this Valentine’s Day! 😀

 

For The Couch Potato – The Logitech K400 Plus

The Logitech K400 Plus is perfect if your significant other is the ultimate couch potato. It’s designed for laid-back control making it easy for your special someone to navigate any TV-connected computer from the comfort of their couch.

What’s more, setting up the Logitech K400 Plus is a breeze. Simply plug in the Unifying receiver into a USB port and you’re good to go! Nothing screams romance quite like Netflix-and-chilling, am I right?

 

For The Busy Bee – The Logitech K380

If your partner is someone who is constantly juggling work between multiple devices, then the Logitech K380 would definitely get you into their good books. Designed with improved efficiency in mind, this little guy not only affords users the comfort and convenience of desktop typing on any smart-device, it also works on multiple operating systems.

What’s more, the Logitech K380 is compact enough for your boo to carry around from meeting to meeting as it weighs just over 400g.

 

 

For The Music Lover – The Logitech X50

There’s nothing more beautiful than giving the gift of music. If your significant other is a self-proclaimed music aficionado, they are sure to love the Logitech X50. The saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” has never been more true than for the Logitech X50.

While it measures just as big as a standard can of tuna, this little baby can pump out some serious volume. Additionally, not only does the Logitech X50 come with rechargeable batteries, users can enjoy up to 5 hours of continuous play on a single charge.

 

For The Gamer – The Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum

If your partner is a gamer, nothing says “you get me” quite like new gaming equipment. But if you truly want to impress, you really can’t go wrong with the Logitech G633 Artemis Spectrum.

Designed by Logitech’s sound engineering team, backed by more than 25 years of audio development experience, the Logitech G633 truly delivers a superior all-around audio experience. What’s more, it’s fully customizable and features RGB lighting and programmable G-keys.

 

For The Fanboy/girl  – The Logitech CREATE

The Logitech CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector for iPad Pro is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift if your partner is a diehard Apple fan. While its sleek and stylish design is enough to impress even the most hard-to-please Apple fanatics, what makes the Logitech CREATE a true winner is its Smart Connector function.

What this means is there is no need for Bluetooth pairing or charging. Just set your IPad Pro into a typing position and go. As though that wasn’t enough, the CREATE also gets its power via the Smart Connector, meaning you never have to charge the keyboard externally. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!
