Times are tough for a lot of people and businesses, both big and small. However, the sudden surge in people working from home or otherwise being stuck indoors seemingly drove record sales at Logitech, which sells a variety of peripherals and streaming equipment. Logitech ended the year with a bang to record its highest full-year sales figure ever. The company earned $2.98 billion for its fiscal 2020. That's up 7 percent from 2019. Logitech ended the year strong with $709 million in sales, up 14 percent from the same quarter a year prior. It's not clear exactly how much impact the COVID-19 outbreak may have had on Logitech's bottom line, only that it played it some kind of role. However, the fourth... Read more...
Logitech today announced a new, ergonomically designed keyboard called the Ergo K860. As seen in the image above, it sports a split design to facilitate a more natural typing experience by angling the left and right main typing sections . The idea behind these types of designs is that users do not have to twist their wrists, as is required when typing on a traditional keyboard. "We know that most people spend between a quarter and a third of their lives at work, so it is important they stay comfortable while they’re at it. We created a science-driven ergonomic keyboard to help office workers improve their posture, increase comfort and lower muscle strain," said Lars Holm Lauridsen, senior... Read more...

It took another step in that direction today by announcing it has agreed to acquired Streamlabs for $89 million in cash, and potentially another $29 million in Logitech stock (subject to the achievement of significant revenue growth targets for Streamlabs).

Logitech is a company that has a lot of products under its umbrella. Gamers tend to think of it mostly as a gaming keyboard and mouse company with products like the recently announced the MX518 gaming mouse. Logitech also owns the Ultimate Ears brand, what has debuted a new product to provide customers with music on the go. That new device is called the Wonderboom 2, and it is a rugged wireless speaker. Wonderboom 2 is a followup to the original Wonderboom speaker promising even bigger 360-degree sound than before and extra bass wherever you need it.

Logitech is taking a second stab at resurrecting its famous MX518 Gaming Mouse. The original debuted back in the middle of the last decade and was praised for its ergonomic design and gaming performance. The company then gave the mouse an internal upgrade and slight exterior refresh with the Optical Gaming Mouse G400 in 2011. Today, Logitech has announced that it is launching a new MX518 Gaming Mouse. That’s right, it takes the name of progenitor, and once again retains the same basic design.

Smart TV owners know that using the menus and performing searches using the normal remote control that comes with a TV can be a challenge. On-screen keyboards have never been the easiest things to use when you can only enter a single character at a time. Voice controlled remotes can help substantially, but there are times where you don’t want to talk to your TV, such as late-night binging sessions when others are home and asleep. Logitech has a new product that should help you navigate your smart TV menu and perform your searches in near silence, however, called the Logitech K600 TV Keyboard with Integrated Touchpad and D-Pad. Logitech says that the keys are silent, comfortable to... Read more...

For anyone who sits in front of a PC for extended periods of time, ergonomics is an important consideration, not just for comfort but also to avoid lingering issues like carpal tunnel syndrome. Dealing with that sort of thing is not fun. Logitech is doing its part. The peripheral maker developed a new mouse that it says i the most advanced ergonomic rodent on the planet, the MX Vertical. Logitech's claim is rooted in science, and while the MX Vertical might look funky to some, the company is adamant that there is a real purpose behind the non-traditional design.

Logitech is promising to deliver the performance of a wired mouse with all the convenience of a wireless mouse -- all for around $60. While might sound a little too good to be true, Logitech says that it has delivered with the G305 Lightspeed mouse. Backed by Logitech's Lightspeed wireless technology and a high-performance (HERO) sensor, the G305 is said to be faster than "most" wired gaming mice on the market while delivering 10 times the power efficiency of the company's previous generation mice.

Logitech has added a pair of new computer gaming peripherals to the mix of products in the "G" line. The new devices include the G560 PC Gaming Speaker and the G513 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. The most interesting of the new peripherals is the speaker system, which features Logitech G Lightsync technology that is able to synchronize light and sound to the gameplay on your screen. That tech allows the speakers to throw colored RGB light on the wall and area around your gaming monitor to extend the colors on your screen to your environment for more immersive gameplay. Philips did something very similar to this with TVs called Ambilight. The speakers have 240 watts peak/120 watts RMS power and support... Read more...
Logitech set off a nuclear bomb among its customer base when it was widely revealed yesterday that Harmony Link devices will be bricked in March 2018. There is nothing physically wrong with the devices, and they currently function normally, but Logitech indicated that an expiring technology certificate license was the reason for the slamming the door on the device. Needless to say, the negative reaction from Harmony Link owners came swiftly, with many of them vowing to never buy Logitech products again and many others going off on long, profanity-laced tirades. Once news of the impending forced bricking spread around the internet, Logitech has been forced to go into full damage control mode.... Read more...
When customer purchase electronics, they typically expect for those devices to have a long useful life as long as they are kept in good condition. Those devices might lose warranty support and functionality updates as the years pass, but their functionality is typically not impeded. Logitech, however, is drawing the ire of customers after it announced that the Harmony Link will effectively be bricked in March 2018. The Harmony Link was first introduced back in 2011 and was a popular add-on for those that bought into the Harmony family of universal remote controls. The Harmony Link allows customers with smartphones and tablets to control their TVs, consoles, and audio systems (among thousands... Read more...
Virtual reality has an enormous amount of potential, and can deliver an equally enormous amount of fun. Sometimes, though, being plucked entirely from reality isn't ideal. While for some games, using only the wireless controllers is needed, not all VR games need to be played while standing. In those cases, where a keyboard and mouse is still the preferred go-to for control, VR can complicate things by, well, not letting you see those peripherals. Logitech has come to the rescue with a solution, and it's called Logitech Bridge. Note that it's not a brand-new keyboard purpose-built for VR... it's an accessory that works with any Logitech G keyboard, making things way easier on those who happen... Read more...
Trackballs were all the rage a couple of decades back, when mice weren’t nearly as accurate, maintenance-free, or ergonomic as today’s offerings. Logitech was a leader in the space back then, and had a handful of popular trackball designs in its line-up, including – my favorite -- the Trackman Marble, but over time their popularity waned and mice got infinitely better. Although trackballs never really went away completely, Logitech made some noise recently with the introduction of the MX Ergo. The new Logitech MX Ergo is a modern trackball with increased accuracy, a comfortable design, and lag-free wireless operation – complete with a long lasting, rechargeable battery. The MX Ergo can also be... Read more...
For many years Logitech made one of the few alternatives to a mouse for people who had some sort of wrist or hand issue like Carpal Tunnel syndrome (or folks who just hated a mouse). That alternative was the Trackball and there were several versions to choose from for users. About a decade ago, Logitech vacated that space leaving those needing an alternative to a normal mouse without many options. However, Logitech has launched a new trackball and that new product is called the MX Ergo. Logitech notes that this is its very first adjustable trackball designed from the ground up to support comfort and to look good to boot. The MX Ergo features an adjustable hinge along with precision tracking and... Read more...
