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.

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 Gaming 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 Unveils G Pro Gaming Mouse

Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse_BTY

NEWARK, Calif. — Aug. 16, 2016 — Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today 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 Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of gaming at 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.”

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 (200-12,000 DPI), 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 reduces the force required to click. This helps deliver crisp, reliable click performance for your highest level of competition.

Comfortable, Durable and Lightweight Design

The Logitech G Pro Gaming mouse is the culmination of more than 30 years of engineering and manufacturing experience. The mouse is optimized to reduce weight to improve comfort, stability and responsiveness. Every aspect of the engineering has been rigorously tested to make sure it can stand up to even the most intense gaming. The top surface of the Logitech G 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.

Onboard Memory for Driver-free Operation on Tournament Systems

Because you can’t always guarantee the tournament machine will have your configuration software available, or even that it’s allowed to be installed, the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse lets you save your exact DPI settings, button assignments, and lighting configuration to the onboard memory in the mouse, all using the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS), so you’ll never have to worry about whether your setup is right.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning August 2016 for a suggested retail price of $69.99 and €79.95 respectively. For more information please visit gaming.logitech.com and check out our videos of the Pro Gaming Mouse here.

Razer Unveils iPad Pro Mechanical Keyboard Case

RzrMKcaseiPadPro_02 copy

IRVINE, Calif. – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the Razer Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch, a first in the world of keyboard mechanical switches. The switches will be initially outfitted into the Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case for the Apple® iPad Pro.

Each Razer Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical switch features a true actuation and reset point. Presses are registered with 70 grams of force, mimicking the feel of full-size mechanical keyboards in a form factor that’s slim enough to accompany a mobile device.

Razer invested in its own exclusive keyboard switch production lines earlier this year to raise the bar on keyboard and keypad durability and performance. The investment into switch research and design by Razer led to new keyboard technology that made the extraordinarily thin design of the Razer Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch possible. This also helped standard Razer Mechanical Switches set the benchmark for durability with an industry-best 80 million keystroke lifespan.

“We’re commonly thought of as a company that makes phenomenal products for gamers, but to design the very best products, we’ve had to innovate from the ground up – even from each individual component such as mechanical switches,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We’re excited about the potential of our Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switch and look forward to exploring other applications in addition to the mechanical keyboard we’ve designed for the iPad Pro.”

The Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case for the Apple iPad Pro is equipped with Bluetooth technology for simple connecting and a metal kickstand. The case is available now at RazerStore.com.

Razer Unveils Razer Naga Hex V2


LOS ANGELES (E3 2016) – Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced its latest gaming mouse, the Razer Naga Hex V2.

Designed for Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games, the Razer Naga Hex V2 buffs it to an OP level, with a 7 button mechanical thumb wheel optimized for MOBA gaming and pre-configured MOBA profiles for maximum in-game efficiency.

“This gaming mouse will help MOBA gamers achieve a better balance between keyboard and mouse commands, allowing you to react better to different situations,” says Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok, mid-laner for Team SKT’s professional “League of Legends” team. “The placement of those extra buttons gives you accuracy without the worry of mis-clicking.”

The world’s most advanced mouse technology powers the Razer Naga Hex V2. A 5G, true 16,000 DPI laser sensor ensures that movements across any display setup register precisely, whether it is a multi-monitor battle station or a 4k screen.

“The MOBA scene has become the most watched genre of eSports in the world, making games like League of Legends and Dota 2 more popular in terms of audience than many professional sports leagues,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We made the first mouse that was ever designed for these players and we’re happy to have improved upon an already great design.”

The Razer Naga Hex V2 follows Razer’s initial foray into mice designed specifically for MOBA players. Inventors of the original gaming mouse in 1998, Razer’s interest in advancing gaming has led to the company making mice specifically designed for MMO, mobile, ambidextrous and even left-handed gameplay.

Razer’s latest mouse will also exploit Powered by Razer Chroma™ technology, which unlocks customizable lighting features that can be synced across devices. Gamers can pick and choose from 16.8 million colors and a variety of effects. Custom settings can be created on the Razer Synapse software platform and shared with millions of other Razer software users via the Razer Chroma Workshop. In-game Razer Chroma lighting profiles are also integrated into popular game titles, including “Overwatch”, “Call of Duty®: Black Ops III”, “Blade and Soul” and more.
