What’s better than a single Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum mechanical keyboard? 160 of them of course! And that’s exactly what was on display at PAX East 2016, where Logitech had on a display of G810 keyboards that were connected together to form what was affectionately known as the Great Wall of Logitech G. Production company iam8bit purposefully laser-etched each keyboard’s the keys to allow more light to shine through, thus giving us all a great opportunity to witness this massive 10ft x 15ft 8-bit display (10 rows, 16 columns) which was used to not only showcase images, but also messages to show...

Whoever the Einstein was that declared this a "post PC era" needs talk to the gamers and enthusiasts that flocked to Boston Convention And Exhibition Center this weekend for the sold-out PAX East show. And in good ol' Bean Town, the Murphys might dropkick that genius for being overly impaired and "ship him off" promptly. In a record attendance of around 90,000 or so, there was plenty of console gaming going on, as well as mobile gaming on tablets and smartphones, and even board games but nothing compared to the crowds flocking around booths from major PC manufacturers and ecosystem partners like...

When it comes to video conferencing, Logitech knows a thing or two about what consumers and businesses want. Logitech is the #1 player in the webcam market and is the #2 player when it comes to conference room video collaboration (VC) systems. We’re certain that Logitech would like to take the #1 position in the VC market as well, and it’s making a run for the top position with its latest offering, the GROUP. The Logitech GROUP was designed to enable HD video conferencing with up to 10 people. However, that number can be expanded to 20 if businesses spring for optional expansion microphones so...

In a broad sense, there are two types of keyboards in this world—those that use mechanical key switches and those that don't. If that sounds like something a keyboard snob would say, so be it, this editor stands guilty as charged, and happily so. We can accept that not everyone will find just cause to spend a premium on a mechanical plank, but one thing we'll never concede is that even the best membrane keyboards are on equal footing as those with mechanical key switches. Stick bamboo under our fingernails (not really) or subject us to a marathon of Matthew McConaughey movies (dear God no!), such... Read more...
On the surface, there's nothing particularly glamorous about a universal remote. It's simply a device that controls multiple electronic gadgets, like your TV and Blu-ray player, so you don't have to keep track of and juggle multiple remotes. No big deal, right? If that's what you think, then you haven't encountered Logitech's Harmony line.Like regular universal remotes, Logitech's Harmony models consolidate your electronic controllers into a single piece of hardware, only they do it in spectacular fashion. They're also far more capable than the no-name models that places like K-Mart peddle in the... Read more...
Logitech just made a splash in the home camera market with the introduction of its Logi Circle, a portable camera that's somewhat similar to Nest's Dropcam. Both cost the same at $200 MSRP, but unlike Dropcam, the Logi Circle is portable and rechargeable, allowing you to take it from room to room for up to three hours of streaming. It also lasts up to 12 hours in power save mode. Once it runs out of juice, you can place the camera on the included magnetic charging ring. This is a pretty big advantage over Dropcam, which needs to be plugged into a power source, though it lacks the integration with... Read more...
Do you feel like your keyboard isn’t gamer-friendly? Logitech just released the G410 Atlas Spectrum, a keyboard designed so entirely for gamers that it probably won’t appeal to anyone (including gamers) for typical use. The keyboard lacks a number pad and has an unusually-shaped, gamer-centric wrist wrest that might make long typing sessions difficult. But when it comes to gaming, the keyboard looks well-equipped. Keyboard keys have received a ton of attention in recent years as gamers have begun favoring mechanical keys for the better keystrokes. There are multiple types of mechanical keys and... Read more...
Logitech's Performance MX Mouse series has long since been a favorite with enthusiasts and workstation professionals alike. Introduced to the market several years ago, it was high time Logitech revisited and refreshed their flagship general purpose mouse with the latest technologies and creature comforts. And boy what revamp this is. Whether you consider its expanded connectivity options, super-sinister sounding "Darkfield Laser" tracking technology, slick "infiniscroll" capable speed-adaptive scroll wheel, or it's super geek cool polygonal textured finish in its thumbrest area, just about everything...

Logitech and its recently-hired chief design officer are overhauling its brand, the company announced today. Over the years, Logitech built its name on PC mice and keyboards, then expanded to produce a wide range of tech accessories. Now, the company is unveiling a new attitude and a new label: Logi. “On top of a colorful and bold new look, you’ll start to see and hear the name Logi,” a Logitech spokesperson wrote in a blog post. “The Logi label will appear on our newest product categories, and expect some twists and a few surprises in new categories. (Get ready – the first Logi product is around... Read more...
If you’re an ardent PC racing fiend, chances are that you either own or have heard of Logitech’s G27. The G27 replaced its predecessor, the G25, way back in 2010. The G27 has been a popular gaming peripheral (it supports the PC, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3) that not only includes a steering wheel and three pedals (accelerator, brake, clutch), but also a six-speed “H” pattern gearbox. But five years is a long time in the PC gaming industry and a replacement for the G27 has been long overdue. Thankfully, Logitech has a two-pronged approach for its successor. Logitech is introducing the G29 Driving... Read more...
Not all computer mice take aim at hardcore gamers. Case in point is Logitech's new MX Anywhere 2, a wireless mobile mouse with a premium aesthetic that would look right at home in a lawyer's office or other professional setting. That's fitting, as it's intended for productivity chores as opposed to fragging your friends or going on virtual quests.In place of a million buttons is a compact design with a rubber surface. It uses what Logitech calls an advanced Darkfield laser sensor that can track on any surface, include glass tables, shiny laminate tops, and other high gloss areas. Digging into the... Read more...
Had things gone to plan, Steam Machines would be a shipping product by now. However, Valve threw a wrench into the works when it decided that more time was needed to tweak its custom Linux-based Steam OS and fine tune the platform's accompanying Steam Controller. That decision left several partnering OEMs and boutique system builders in limbo, as they had already put in the necessary R&D to develop living room boxes that would serve as official Steam Machines. Hence a new category was born -- the PC gaming console. Systems like the Syber Vapor are full-fledged PCs stuffed inside console-sized... Read more...
Logitech's no stranger to crafting some of the world's best computer mice, and in particular, its MX series has long been considered to be one of the best (just not for gaming). With its MX Master Wireless Mouse, Logitech continues the series' lineage, and it will take just one quick glance to see that the company is hoping to strike the right chord of those who don't just want a great mouse, but a great looking one, as well. A major goal of the MX Master is comfort, a point that Logitech harps on about numerous times in its press release. It features a "hand-sculpted" design, and is meant to be... Read more...
With smartphones and tablets being so commonplace these days, we're all classified as mobile warriors. However, most of the devices lack mojo in one critical area -- speakers. At best, we hope for serviceable sound from speakers integrated into tablet and smartphone devices, which is why we're starting to see more portable speaker options. Towards that end, Logitech's Ultimate Ears division today announced its UE MEGABOOM, a next-generation portable wireless speaker that's supposed to deliver more power, sound, and bass than previous efforts.Don't fret too much over placement -- the UE MEGABOOM...
