Choose Your Weapons Wisely: Logitech Unveils New G-Series Gaming Headset, Mouse, Keyboard

Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 Delivers 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound; Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 Features 13 Controls; Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510 Offers Logitech-exclusive GamePanel™ LCD

FREMONT, Calif.--Today Logitech unveiled three new G-Series gaming peripherals — the Logitech® Wireless Gaming Headset G930, the Logitech® Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 and the Logitech® Gaming Keyboard G510. The newest gaming peripherals from the award-winning Logitech G-Series family are crafted for maximum performance, freeing you from technical limitations so you can immerse yourself in your favorite games.

“The new G-Series products give every gamer a competitive advantage,” said Elliott Chin, Logitech’s senior manager of product marketing for gaming. "Whether it's a headset with 7.1 surround sound, a mouse with 13 controls, or a keyboard with an LCD that displays critical in-game stats, everything about the new G-Series lineup helps you win, no matter what game you love to play."

Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 — Level Up Without Being Tied Down

The Wireless Gaming Headset G930 immerses you in 7.1 Dolby® surround sound, creating a detailed, positional soundfield that lets you hear your opponents before they see you. With gaming-grade wireless technology designed specifically for two-way, uncompressed audio streaming, you can focus on your game without being distracted by typical wireless lag or interference annoyances.

The G930 gaming headset comes fully equipped, with three programmable G-keys that put you in total command over music, voice morphing and chat clients. A memory-foam-lined headband fends off fatigue, while plush ear pads ease pressure points and seal out unwanted noise. The noise-canceling microphone keeps your voice loud and clear for coordinating with your team. And if you’re dedicated enough to drain the internal 10-hour battery in a single marathon session, the included charging base lets you easily recharge while you continue to use the headset.

Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 — Powerful Control

Optimized for MMO while still offering the precision needed for FPS, the Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 keeps you comfortable, in control and deep in your game. Its 13 precisely placed controls can be programmed to perform single actions or complex macros with a single click, but are out of the way when you don’t need them. The full-speed wireless connection (1000 reports per second) gives you gaming performance without lags coupled with the freedom of wireless.

The G700 mouse is designed with natural curves to better fit your hand — so you can keep playing comfortably for as long as you want. The quick-connect charging cable provides both power, even when the mouse is still in use, and data-over-cable capabilities for LAN-friendly connectivity.

Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510 — The Tools and Intel You Need to Win

The Gaming Keyboard G510 delivers the tools you need to win. The keyboard features 18 programmable G-keys with three mode states, giving you up to 54 possible macro settings per game. You can pre-define macros for your favorite games, or you can create new ones on the fly for easy customization.

The Logitech-exclusive GamePanel™ LCD gives you real-time game stats and PC performance data. Customizable RGB backlighting makes it easy to keep keyboard controls in plain sight — day or night. And it includes 3.5 mm audio jacks, so you can plug in an analog headset for clear digital communication over USB.

The new G-Series products are available now at www.logitech.com and will be rolling out soon with major retailers.

The Logitech® Wireless Gaming Headset G930 is available for a suggested retail price of $159.99 (U.S.).

Wuznt Y'alls just Talkn Bout the G9?

I am looking for a illuminated keyboard and a good mouse! These things on the outset are usually very pricey:P

Looks like I will probably go with the Logitech 920? And the Microsoft sidewinder. That mouse seems longer to be able to fit my hand. I dont play many games so the gaming features are not important.

If they had this whole set in a package for around two fiddy, then I would probably go with it! Seeing how I would not go for a wired headphone ever again, and my current ones have two years of wear!! The wires on the mouse and keyboard are no big deal, I like a wireless mouse, but it sucks when you are about to make the game winning shot and the batteries run out:P

The keyboard looks really nice. My question is why do they feel they need that little screen! Kinda makes it an inconvenience for those of us who have the keyboard on the pullout tray under the desktop:P At least make it adjustable?

That head set looks pretty nice, i would love to get a new one that is wireless. my wire keeps landing on my keyboard and gets jammed with drawers and blocks space on my table :(. Also like the morphing feature :P. Not a bad mouse as well. might also need that keyboard to have a matching set :D lol. but... i won't be able to afford all 3 :(. might just buy one when i am ready for the replacement and got money on my hands.

I sure would like a new keyboard and mouse lol

I'd prefer a wireless one tho.

I might be able to live with a wired keyboard tho... but the mouse definitely has to be wireless.

huge fan of the g series but this new series seems lame compared to the other series of gear. G series usally brings something new each series, but the keyboard needs some innovation, same design for the last 3 keyboards. mouse is a bit different would love to try it out though from the apperence i would rather go with a rat 7/9 or g9 instead of it for the price they want(got big hands and need a big mouse lol). Headset looks cool but only major difference from the old one is that it is wireless.

G series makes sick products but would love to see some innovation.

Agreed, not much innovation!

The mouse is just a modified version of the Logitech Performance Mouse MX! Kinda like they wanted something different yet still wanted to use the same manufacturing molds so they just rubberized the MX.

Still as far as headsets, wireless is the only way to go. If you need a gaming headset that is a standard price for a wireless. It sucks to get up for the bathroom and you end up knocking over the DrP with the headphone cord:P

If U must have a wireless mouse the new Sidewinder X8 has an interesting charge cord that can be used when the Batteries are low as a standard.

I'ma stick with my G9. Better fill, changeable grips, changeable weight, wired, and on the fly changeable sensor settings.

As they said, this mouse is designed for MMO players. Sorry to say, but I hate MMOs with a passion.
