Logitech G Pro Gaming mouse

Logitech G recently announced a new mouse to their lineup, the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse, for eSports players and also for those who love gaming.

Let me share with you more details of the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse –

Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the Logitech® G Pro Gaming Mouse. Designed for eSports athletes, this new gaming mouse features Logitech’s most accurate optical gaming sensor, a metal spring button tensioning system, onboard memory for driver-free operation on tournament systems, and a comfortable, durable yet lightweight design. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse builds on the heritage and global popularity of the Logitech G100s shape with top competitive eSports professionals, and combines it with the incredible speed, accuracy and responsiveness of the G303.

“The benefit of working with eSports players is that they tell us what they like, and more importantly, what they don’t like,” said Moninder Jain, Managing Director, ASEAN and Vice-President of Logitech. “Our new Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse takes what eSports pros loved about the G100s and G303 and combines it into a mouse that we’re confident will meet their standards.”

“Competing at the top level requires a well-built mouse,” said Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham of Cloud 9 CS:GO. “After working closely with Logitech and extensive testing, the new Pro Gaming Mouse is my preferred mouse. With a comfortable shape and top-of-the-line sensor, I never have problems picking off my enemies.”

Key Features

  • Advanced Optical Gaming Sensor: Consistent, pixel-precise accuracy makes a critical difference in high-stakes competitive gameplay. The PMW3366 sensor delivers a level of precision widely considered to be the best by enthusiasts and professionals alike. With zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000DPI), it provides exceptional tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness at any speed.

  • Metal Spring Button Tensioning System: The metal spring button tensioning system in the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse enhances the consistency of the left and right mouse buttons and helps reduce the force required to click. This ensures a crisp, reliable click performance you can depend on at the highest level of competition.

  • Comfortable, Durable and Lightweight Design: The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is optimized to reduce weight, helping improve comfort, stability and responsiveness. Every aspect of the engineering is rigorously tested to make sure it can stand up to even the most intense gaming. The top surface of the Pro Gaming Mouse is treated with a special coating to improve durability and grip, and the left and right buttons are tested to exceed 20 million clicks – the equivalent of a pro gamer training 10 hours every day for two years.

  • Driver-free Operation for Tournament Systems. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse lets you save your exact DPI settings, button assignments, and lighting configuration via Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) to the onboard memory in the mouse, so you’ll never have to worry about whether your setup is right. Since you can’t always guarantee the tournament machine will have your configuration software available, or that it’s allowed to be installed, so this is perfect for competitions.

Thoughts and views of the Logitech M221 Silent Mouse

  • As the name of the product suggests, it’s very quiet, hardly any noise at all and not much of a clicking sound when I am using it.
  • Easy to setup, connect and use
  • Small and lightweight, easy to bring it out
  • The nano receiver is needed, to plug into the USB drive for the Logitech M221 Silent Mouse to work. For computers with few USB ports, this might not be ideal for them.

If you are looking for an affordable mouse, small, light and easy to bring it out, do check out the Logitech M221 Silent Mouse.

I would like to thank Logitech Singapore for the opportunity to review the Logitech M221 Silent Mouse.

I recently bought an old late 2009 iMac from my cousin and it doesn’t come with the original Apple mouse and keyboard, probably due to the old iMac changing hands a number of times. Therefore, I decided to try out the recently launched Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard and M337 Bluetooth Mouse for my iMac.

IMG_0075

This particular combination served me well, they were easy to set up and pair up with my iMac. They worked seamlessly and easily, without too much hassles. The K380 keyboard is designed to work closely with unique functions of the Mac OS X system and it is definitely a good alternative choice for Bluetooth keyboards for your iMac or your other Mac OS X and iOS devices. While it can connect up to three devices, I decided to use it faithfully for my iMac instead. They are also price friendly and they suit up nicely to pair it up with my late 2009 iMac.

I would like to thank Logitech Singapore for the review opportunity that allows me to test and review the Logitech K380 Multi-Device Keyboard and M337 Bluetooth Mouse. After the review, I liked both of them and their performances that I bought them for my own usage after that.
