Logitech revealed its latest addition to its G-Series of gaming products in the form of the new Logitech Gaming Mouse G300. This mouse features nine programmable controls and the ability to store up to three profiles in the mouse’s onboard memory. To help you see which profile is enabled, you can assign a different lighted color to the profiles. The mouse also features a sculpted, ambidextrous shape. For accuracy, the Logitech Gaming Mouse G300 features a 2500-DPI optical sensor. The Logitech Gaming Mouse G300 will be available in September for about $40.

Logitech Introduces Gaming Mouse G300 for PC Gamers

Ambidextrous Design Delivers More Power and More Control for Hours of Play

FREMONT, Calif. — Aug. 18, 2011 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled the latest addition to its acclaimed G-Series gaming products, the Logitech® Gaming Mouse G300. Designed to give PC gamers an advantage over the competition, the mouse features nine programmable controls, letting you move keyboard commands to buttons that are in easy reach.

Additionally, the Logitech® Gaming Mouse G300 lets you store up to three game or player profiles in the mouse’s onboard memory, so you can run the mouse without software or even move it between computers without having to reconfigure each time. User-configurable lighting assigns one of seven colors to each profile, so you can easily see which profile you’re using. Plus, the mouse’s sculpted, ambidextrous shape is equally comfortable in either hand.

“The Logitech® Gaming Mouse G300 is perfect for PC gamers who want intelligent features that give them real benefits in-game” said Chris Pate, senior product marketing manager for gaming at Logitech. “Whether you need more programmable buttons for your MMO, better precision for targeting enemies in an FPS, or a compact, comfortable shape to get you through hours of gameplay, we’ve got it covered.”

The Logitech® Gaming Mouse G300’s gaming-grade 2500-DPI optical sensor tracks slow or fast movements on a wide variety of surfaces, so you get exactly the action you want from every incremental hand movement. In addition, optional drag-and-drop software makes it easy to set the Logitech® Gaming Mouse G300 up exactly the way you want. The software also works with G-Series keyboards and headsets, so you can create macros once and share them between your G-Series family of devices.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech Gaming Mouse G300 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in September, for a suggested retail price of $39.99. For more information please visit www.logitech.com or our blog.

This looks like a great ambidextrous mouse. Love the feature of being able to store multiple profiles this would be great for a family too. Plus at $39.99 you can't beat the price for a gaming grade mouse.

$40 is a sweet deal for this quality of a mouse.

I wonder is this one will have the weighted slot like the other G series.

Looks like the same design and size that they have been using for years. now it just has more buttons and some lights?

I always thought this design is too thin, it could use a little more junk in the backend in order to fit the palm. or would also like to see it have a left and right variant.

Look like a lot a features and performance packed in to a $ 40.00 dollar mouse. What is interesting as well is the ability to combine macros with similar with other Logitech GS Series of keyboards for possibly some day to day tasks.Always a bit nice to speed up the repetition of the mundane daily stuff.Even for lefties too !.

Hope it's not to light in weight.

Well that is a lot of features and it certainly looks different... I'm sure people who're looking for a competent gaming mouse will surely look Logitech's way.
