New Logitech G Prodigy Series Introduced

19 September 2016Logitech today announced the Prodigy Series, a family of gaming gear that was designed to enhance the way you play. The new series, which includes two mice, a keyboard and a headset, all share the same attributes of high-performance technology, exceptional comfort, and a sleek and modern design.

The Logitech G Prodigy Series includes the Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse, Logitech G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse, Logitech G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard, and the Logitech G231 Prodigy Headset.

 

Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mice

The Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse and Logitech G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse deliver long-lasting comfort, thanks to their lightweight, ergonomic design. Rubber grips on the left and right sides give you added control, and the included 10g removable weight allows you to increase the weight if you prefer a heavier mouse.

Both mice are up to eight times faster than standard mice, which means when they are moved or clicked, the on-screen response is near-instantaneous. Each mouse has advanced button tensioning that helps keep the left and right mouse buttons primed to click, reducing the force required to click, delivering exceptional responsiveness.

These mice feature the PMW3366, the world’s most advanced gaming mouse sensor, preferred by eSports pros worldwide. Exceptionally precise and consistent, the PMW3366 gives you the confidence of quicker responses and more accurate targeting.

The mice can be used directly out-of-the-box, or with LGS you can fully configure the mouse to customize your lighting, buttons and DPI settings. Specifically, the G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse is equipped with the same energy efficient, high performance wireless technology as the award-winning Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum.

The highly optimized 2.4GHz wireless connection has 1ms report rate for incredible lag-free responsiveness that outperforms competitive solutions, including wired ones.

 

Logitech G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard

Designed for gamers of all levels, the G213 Prodigy keyboard features a sleek, spill-resistant design that is comfortable and durable. An integrated palm rest and adjustable feet let you set your keyboard to the ideal position, so it feels perfect during extended gaming sessions.

[adrotate banner=”4″]

The G213 Prodigy keyboard brings together the best in tactile feel and performance with keys built specifically for gamers. Each key on the G213 Prodigy is tuned to deliver ultra-quick, responsive feedback that’s up to four times faster than standard keyboards. Plus, its anti-ghosting gaming matrix is tuned for optimal gaming performance, keeping you in control when you press multiple gaming keys simultaneously.

The G213 Prodigy keyboard features five RGB illumination zones that can be personalized from a spectrum of up to 16.8 million colors. Change colors to match your setup, specific games, or showcase your favorite colors, and synchronize lighting effects with other Logitech G devices using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). Low light leakage around each keycap means more light comes through the lettering and less spills out around the keycaps, making it easier to find your keys in the dark.

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 G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset

Using 40 mm neodymium drivers, the G231 Prodigy Headset delivers high-quality stereo sound that keeps you immersed in your PC or console game from start to finish. The earcups are covered with carefully selected sports performance cloth for a comfortable, soft touch even after hours of use. And they slip off easily for washing to keep the headset in top shape. The earcups are also designed to be slim and light, without skimping on audio quality.

A crystal-clear unidirectional boom mic can be positioned to pick up your voice alone, ensuring that you will be heard loudly and clearly. And when not in use, the mic can be folded back into the headphones. In-line audio controls for volume and microphone mute are within easy reach on the connection cable.

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.

Razer Turret Keyboard Mouse Combo Launched

IRVINE, Calif.Razer today announced the much-anticipated release of the Razer Turret, a mouse and integrated keyboard and mouse surface that together deliver the power of desktop-grade gaming peripherals into the laps of gamers. The combo was originally unveiled as a prototype in early 2015.

Designed with a focus on enabling a PC gaming experience from the couch, the Razer Turret consists of a gaming grade chiclet keyboard with full anti-ghosting and a highly precise gaming mouse with a 3500 DPI sensor. The integrated magnetic mouse mat ensures the mouse will not slip even during intense gaming sessions.

“The Razer Turret brings the immense world of PC gaming to a previously impossible frontier—the living room—where only consoles have traditionally roamed until now,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “Finally, we have a perfect solution for gamers to enjoy the unrivaled precision of a mouse and keyboard combination from the comfort of the couch with the durability and reliability that PC gamers demand.”

The Razer Turret comes with dual wireless connectivity, enabling users to play lag-free when connected to a console via Bluetooth LE or to a PC via the bundled wireless 2.4 GHz adaptor. The performance of the Razer Turret rivals desktop-grade gaming hardware, providing a tactical weapon that can be unleashed on opponents from a casual environment.

The Razer Turret’s ergonomic and ultra-slim form factor is made specifically to fit on a user’s lap. A foldable hinge ensures that the lapboard is unobtrusive and dock-able, leaving it a normal part of the living room environment when not in use.

Made to withstand even the most action-packed gaming marathons, the Razer Turret has built-in high-capacity lithium polymer batteries, so a player’s kill streaks will not be interrupted by untimely battery warnings. By supporting up to four months of usage on the keyboard (an estimated 40 hours of nonstop play on the mouse), Razer Turret owners won’t have to charge their gaming weapons after every use.

Razer Turret’s Keyboard

  • Anti-ghosting capability for up to 10 simultaneous key presses
  • Chiclet styled keycaps
  • Dedicated Android buttons

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.

Today, we will take a look at the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 wireless mouse, which was specially developed for mobile users.

Don’t mistaken the term “developed for mobile users” to mean a teeny-weeny or flattened mouse with wireless capabilities. The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is designed to address the critical needs of the mobile user, namely the ability to track on any surface, dual connectivity via Bluetooth and wireless receiver, and the ability to switch between 3 different devices. Let’s take a look!

 

Unboxing The Logitech MX Anywhere 2

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 comes in a very nice cardboard retail box, with its key features listed on the box in four languages. The system requirements (Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.8 or better for WiFi and Windows 8 or Mac OS X 10.10 or better for Bluetooth) are listed on the right side. On the left is a list of the box’s contents.

The box actually flips open in the front to reveal the MX Anywhere 2 mouse and its Pico Unifying receiver behind a clear plastic window. This allows you to gauge how well the mouse will fit your hand before purchasing it. The inner side of the cover shows you the five simple steps to get the MX Anywhere 2 mouse to work with your devices in pictorial form.

Once you open up the box, you will find the following items :

Now, let’s take a closer look at the MX Anywhere 2 mouse…

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is a compact mouse designed for mobile use, so don’t expect much palm support. It is best used with a pincer grip, even with smaller Asian hands. With a typical resolution of 1,000 dpi, you don’t need much wrist action to go a long way.

In case you are wondering, the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 only comes in one colour scheme – a mix of black and army green, with chrome accents on the scroll wheel. Let’s take a look at its specifications.

 

Darkfield Laser Sensor

As a mouse designed to be used on-the-go, it is important that it can work with any kind of surface. However, the traditional laser sensor has trouble tracking on clear glass or very glossy surfaces. This led Logitech to develop a dual-laser system they dub as the “Darkfield laser tracking technology“.

Basically, it uses two laser diodes to better pick up the minute surface irregularities on highly glossy surfaces. This allows the MX Anywhere 2 to track on all types of glassy surfaces as long as the glass surface is at least 4 mm thick.

 

Dual Connectivity

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 has another unique feature – dual connectivity. It supports Bluetooth 4.0 (also known as Bluetooth Low Energy or Bluetooth Smart), allowing you to pair it with virtually any laptop and smart device in the market without the use of any receiver. However, your PC will need to run on at least Microsoft Windows 8 or Mac OS X 10.10.

If you are using an older computer that does not support Bluetooth 4.0, or runs on Windows 7 or an older version of Mac OS X, the MX Anywhere 2 comes with a Pico Unifying receiver. This miniature USB receiver with a range of 10 meters (32 feet) allows you to pair any computer with the MX Anywhere 2 using a direct 2.4 GHz radio connection.

As this is a Unifying receiver, you can pair any compatible Logitech keyboard to the same receiver. This allows you to save one USB port by using the same receiver for both keyboard and mouse. You will need to install and use the Logitech Unifying software to pair and unpair compatible Logitech devices to the Pico Unifying receiver.

 

Battery & Charging

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 comes with a small 500 mAh lithium-ion polymer battery. Logitech claims a maximum battery life of 40 days, based on 6 hours of daily use. This is probably based on the Bluetooth 4.0 connection. Using the Pico Unifying receiver, we got about 3 weeks of use before requiring a recharge.

The MX Anywhere 2 recharges its battery via a micro USB port in the front. They intentionally placed the port there so that you can continue using the mouse while it’s charging. Once attached, the USB cable temporarily turns this wireless mouse into a “wired” mouse.

You will be glad to know that since the MX Anywhere 2 uses so little power, a single minute of charging time will give you up to 2 hours of use.

Page 3 : The Scroll Wheel & Buttons, Gliding & Stability Performance

The Scroll Wheel & Buttons

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 comes with a scroll wheel that supports both vertical and horizontal scrolling. Pressing on the scroll wheel switches between 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”.

There is a small middle button behind the scroll wheel that enables the Gestures feature, but only if the Logitech Options utility is installed. Right behind it is a small LED light that gives you an indication of its battery life. If the green light turns red, it means the MX Anywhere 2‘s battery is down to less than 20% of its capacity – an indication you should recharge the mouse.

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 looks symmetrical but it’s not an ambidextrous mouse. It was definitely designed for the right-handed user, with the two side buttons on the left side and none on the right side. However, the two side buttons aren’t really all that useful – being used as Forward and Back buttons.

If you don’t mind living without the side buttons, the MX Anywhere 2 is symmetrical enough to use with your left hand. You just need to install the Logitech Options software to switch the left and right main buttons.

The base of the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 conceals its On/Off switch and a Connect button. There is also an Easy-Switch button with 3 small LED lights. The Connect button allows you to put the MX Anywhere 2 in pairing mode, while the Easy-Switch button allows you to pair up to 3 different devices with the MX Anywhere 2.

 

Gliding & Stability Performance

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 is supported on its base by four average 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 MX Anywhere 2.

More importantly, the base of the MX Anywhere 2 was very stable. Nothing irritates me 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.

Page 4 : Logitech Options, Our Verdict

Logitech Options

The Logitech Options software is not necessarily to use the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse with your Windows or Mac PC. However, it gives you the ability to customise the mouse buttons, scrolling speed and gesture options.

The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 has a default sensitivity of 1,000 dpi. This is lower than what you would expect from a gaming mouse, because this is a mouse designed for mobile users who would have less screen area to work with. However, you can use Logitech Options to change the MX Anywhere 2‘s sensitivity from as low as 400 dpi all the way to 1,600 dpi, in steps of 200 dpi.

 

Our Verdict

For a relatively small mouse, the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 packs a ton of smart features. It supports both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, which includes the ability to pair with up to 3 different computers or devices.

Road warriors who have to put up with all sorts of different table surfaces at cafés and airports will love its Darkfield laser sensor. This dual-laser sensor technology allows the MX Anywhere 2 to work on virtually any surface, including glass and highly glossy surfaces.

[adrotate banner=”4″]The Logitech MX Anywhere 2 also comes with a scroll wheel that not only supports vertical and horizontal scrolling, but also the option to switch between ratcheted and smooth scrolling modes. Just press the scroll wheel to switch modes – it can’t be any faster or simpler than that!

We also like the fact that Logitech was smart enough to recharge the MX Anywhere 2 via a micro-USB port in the front. This allows the mouse to be used while it’s charging, essentially converting it into a wired mouse while it’s charging up.

We thoroughly enjoyed our limited time with the Logitech MX Anywhere 2. It worked very well with both our Mac and Windows computers, switching between Bluetooth and its WiFi-based Unifying receiver effortlessly. It is therefore our pleasure to award it with our Reviewer’s Choice Award. Congratulations, Logitech!
