Announcing New Logitech G-Series Gaming Peripherals


So, you just started playing competitive online games on the PC, yet you keep getting “rekt” in every match. Sound familiar? Well, aside from your lack of experience and skill, it might be because the veterans have a few tricks or two up their sleeves. Now, before you start getting salty and accuse people of cheating, you too can wield this mighty power—at a price, of course. Here to assist you are Logitech’s G-series gaming peripherals, designed to provide you with the accuracy, precision, and features many gamers use to reach the top of the leaderboards. Do keep in mind, though, that they aren’t guaranteed to increase your score or be the one-step solution to bump your livestream viewer count. In fact, many great players might not even use some of the features, and got to where they are today the old-fashioned way: time and effort.


The mouse is a core component for gaming. You’ll find yourself using it to look around, pan across the map, select units, and so on. Without it, you’d might as well be playing with one arm behind your back; therefore, you’ll want a mouse that can carry you in the battlefield. Take the G502 Proteus Spectrum, for example. This wired USB mouse features a 12,000-dpi optical sensor, 11 programmable buttons, customizable RGB lighting (which, by the way, does not make you any better at all…), dpi switches, and an adjustable weight system. More importantly, it’s ergonomically designed so you can get more hours of practice in. There have been plenty of arguments and testing done for wired versus wireless performance; however, if you’d rather go wireless, don’t let that stop you. Be sure to check out Logitech’s G603, G703, and G903 wireless gaming mice. Without having to explain too much, the higher the model number, the fancier the mouse. One thing to note, though, is that the G703 and G903 support Logitech’s PowerPlay wireless charging system, which is basically a mouse pad that charges your mouse just by having it on the surface, with no docking needed.

On the other hand, there is your keyboard—the copilot to destruction, angry messages, and tears of other players. Without it, you’d literally be standing still. It provides you with movement, macros, and the responsiveness you need for complicated, simultaneous multi-key commands. Starting with a pretty basic model, the G413 is a red, backlit keyboard with Logitech’s Romer-G switches, anti-ghosting, and 26-key rollover. Users looking for more features and a bump in aesthetics should check out the G810 and G910. Not only can these do everything the G413 can, but they also have built-in media controls for easy access and customizable RGB lighting. Additionally, the G910 features ARX Control integration, which lets you dock your Android or iOS smartphone and use it as a second display for in-game stats, system details, and more with its downloadable app.

You know that saying, “Seeing is believing?” Well, hearing is important too, and probably the second sense you rely on most for gaming. Some players may opt to listen to music while playing, which is alright in some games, but many are designed with vital audio cues. If you happen to catch them in time, you’ll know what is coming or what happened. More specifically, if you can hear someone approaching you from around a corner, you’ll be less likely to be caught off guard when he suddenly pops up in your face. Thankfully, Logitech’s G433, G533, and G933 headsets all feature 7.1 virtual surround sound to help you out. The second reason why you’d want a headset for gaming is because of the microphone. Without proper communication, things tend to head south fast. (If you’re shy and don’t want to talk, that’s cool too, but at least listen in to your team’s calls.) Lastly, most of these headsets are compatible with multiple platforms, as well as mobile devices, so you can wear them while you’re out. (You know, depending on your fashion sense, of course.)
