If you’re a diehard video streamer, Logitech has just announced a much-improved successor to its incredibly popular C920. The C920 webcam has been with us for nearly five years, and it has served with distinction during that time, but the new C922 Pro is here to carry the streaming torch. While it keeps the same form-factor that served the C920 so well, the C922 can capture 1080p video at 30 frames per second and 720p at 60 frames per second (the C920 was limited to 30 frames per second at 720p). The performance upgrade will definitely be welcome to Twitch and YouTube streamers as well as vloggers around the globe. But perhaps the most intriguing new feature of the C922 is the inclusion of dynamic... Read more...
Why wield multiple keyboards for different devices when you can have one that works with them all? That's the idea behind Logitech's K780 Multi-Device Wireless Keyboard (just K780 from here on out), a fully-equipped PC plank with a 10-key pad that also works on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, all connected at the same time. Simultaneous connections on a keyboard can be a bit tricky. To prevent what you're typing on your PC from appearing on your iPad and Galaxy S7 handset (or whatever tablet and phone you're rocking), there are three Easy-Switch buttons that let you toggle between three connected gadgets. And the neat thing about this is there's a lip on the back of the K780 to... Read more...
It's still relatively early in the smart home movement that's been making headway into the mainstream market and that means there's a ton of untapped potential for creative and innovative solutions. One of them was just introduced by Logitech—it's the Pop Home Switch, or basically a programmable button that can control multiple smart home devices. You can program up to three different action sequences in each switch, which in turn are initiated by a single press, double press, or a long press. For example, you might program a single press to turn lighting on or off, a double press to lock the doors, or a long press to initiate an activity like movie night whereby the Pop dims the lights and turns...

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 attendees. But perhaps the most impressive demo, however, was a video short of a side-scrolling... Read more...
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 Kingston, Gigabyte, Corsair, EVGA, Logitech, NVIDIA, AMD and Intel. And VR was center stage with the... Read more...
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 that everyone has a voice. As the follow-up to the ConferenceCam CC3000e, the Logitech GROUP carries... 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 clearance bin and at the checkout line, and for what it's worth, they look good too.Logitech's Harmony...

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 smart products (Dropcam can connect to Nest's Thermostat and Protect devices). This is Logitech's... 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 (for some gamers, at least), the differences among them matter. So, whether the $129.99 G410 is right... 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 was amped-up in this MX reincarnation. And that caused us a hard-stop pause for a double-take... 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 spec sheet, we find that the laser sensor is adjustable from 400 dpi to 1600 dpi in increments of... 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 comfortable regardless of how you use your mouse - even if it involves using multiple screens or multiple... 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 offers 360-degree sound with "heart pounding bass," according to Logitech. It's also waterproof (IPX7... Read more...
Logitech has unveiled a new entry into its Logitech G mouse series that caters to players of the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena genre (MOBA). Called the Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime MOBA Gaming Mouse, the company had its newest device tests by professional MOBA players from teams such a Invictus Gaming and Cloud9. “We built the Logitech G302 to meet the performance needs of the best eSports athletes in the world,” said Logitech director of gaming Vincent Tucker. “The G302 is the best mouse for MOBA gameplay combining comfort and durability with some of the most advanced technology available. It withstands the rigors of the highest levels of gaming, and enables extremely... Read more...
Riddle us this -- what looks like a Surface Touch Keyboard, won't give up the ghost if you spill your coffee on it, and is intended for Apple's iPad family? The answer is Logitech's new Keys-To-Go, an ultra-portable and standalone Bluetooth plank that's covered with a durable FabricSkin that wards off dirt, crumbs, and spills. "People use their iPads everywhere and the Logitech Keys-To-Go was specifically designed to effortlessly support people’s active lifestyles," said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech. "We have introduced the Logitech Keys-To-Go and updated our existing award-winning lineup of iPad keyboards for the new iPad Air 2 to offer a suite of products that... Read more...
Being the hardcore enthusiasts that we are, it's easy to forget that not everyone lives on the cutting edge of technology or otherwise wants or needs high end components and peripherals designed for power users. So for those of who wouldn't dream of owning a mouse decked out with more buttons than you have fingers, meet Logitech's latest rodent, the M320. This little guy is a wireless mouse designed for comfort by way of its curved shape to "guide your hand to a natural position." It also sports an asymmetrical form, making it an ambidextrous rodent for both left- and right-handed users. "With the considerable amount of time each day that we all spend using desktops, laptops and tablets, it is... Read more...
Logitech has added more functionality to some of its remote control products, and with them the company is aiming for a smarter home. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate and Logitech Harmony Smart Control now have the ability to control SONOS wireless HIFi System speakers and Philips Hue lights, and they offer speech-to-text capabilities through the associated Harmony App. The speech-to-text functionality is particularly useful for searching for content on your set-top device such as the new Amazon Fire TV, and the app uses Siri or Android Speech Recognition (depending, obviously, on your device). This update also grants the Harmony Hub remote setup to a number of devices including Roku boxes as well... Read more...
Logitech is certainly no stranger to the living room. The company boasts a range of universal remotes and keyboards designed to help you navigate channels on your swank HDTV and HTPC, but up until now, the company was missing an illuminated keyboard option. Not anymore. Logitech today looks to brighten your home entertainment setup with the "Illuminated Living Room Keyboard K830" (just K830 from here on out). The K830 is a rechargeable plank with backlit keys, an integrated touchpad, and advanced wireless connectivity so you can click from your couch or bed when the lights go dim. "More and more consumers want an easy way to access movies, TV programs, music and photos with their PC connected... Read more...
Universal remotes typically fall into one of two categories: Logitech's and all others. We've played with several of Logitech's Harmony remotes over the years and rarely have we been disappointed. This time around, Logitech is taking things a step further by announcing its Harmony Smart Keyboard, which is a wireless keyboard and touchpad combination designed specifically for controlling streaming media in your living room. You can program the Harmony Smart Keyboard to work without up to eight devices from a library of more than 225,000 gadgets from over 5,000 brands. It also comes with a Harmony Hub -- a hockey puck-shaped receiver that turns signals from the keyboard or your smartphone and translates... Read more...
Logitech wants to turn your iPhone 5S, iPhone 5, and/or iPod touch (5th generation) into a legitimate mobile gaming platform. In order to do that, Logitech today introduced its PowerShell Controller + Battery accessory. Simply slip your mobile device running iOS 7 into Logitech's accessory just like you would with a standard case and suddenly you have access to console-like controls, including a D-pad, shoulder triggers, and face buttons. "We designed this controller to deliver a true console-gaming experience on an iOS 7 mobile device," said Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming business. "With gaming so pervasive on the mobile platform — our research shows that 87 percent... Read more...
