Logitech has unveiled three new products aimed specifically at gaming enthusiasts. The new G-Series low friction gaming mouse features 13 programmable controls and pixel-perfect laser tracking. The keyboard has a GamePanel LCD display, user-customized color backlit keys and delivers 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound, plus up to 10 hours battery life... and there's a wireless headset too.

Logitech says that its new G-Series gaming peripherals have been designed to give maximum performance so that gamers can simply lose themselves in their favorite battle zones without having to worry about any frustrating technical limitations. The new additions "give every gamer a competitive advantage," according to the company's Elliott Chin. "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."

Each of the 13 programmable buttons has been precisely placed to maximize user comfort and control and can receive complex macro commands (such as multiple keystrokes, mouse events, user-defined delays and repeating) as well as single action functionality. They've also been specially sculpted to cater for easy touch recognition.

The G700 benefits from up to 5,700 dpi resolution, precision laser technology and 1000 reports-per-second wireless connectivity, which should offer lagless freedom with no dropouts. Underneath are low-friction feet to help achieve a smooth glide and the peripheral's ergonomics are designed to follow the natural curves of the hand for added comfort during long periods of gameplay.

Up to five onboard memory profiles can be saved for different game or player situations and a quick-connect charging cable provides both power and data-over-cable capabilities for local-network-friendly connectivity.

The G700 Wireless Gaming Mouse is available at a suggested retail of US$99.99

Logitech G510 Gaming Keyboard

Some extra information about gameplay could just give you the advantage you need to claim total victory and that's just what's on offer with the LCD GamePanel sitting at the top of the G510 Gaming Keyboard. Real-time information such as player rank, server IP, score, times, health status and ammunition levels is available at a glance when used with over 35 supported games. The GamePanel also shows computer performance information, communication data, server status and media/music snapshots.

Other features of the G510 include 18 programmable G-keys, each having three macro modes, giving up to 54 possible macro settings per game (including single keypress, complex macros or intricate scripts). Users can personalize their keying experience with RGB color custom color character/key backlighting and up to five keys can be simultaneously pressed and they'll still be independently recognized.

A memory foam headband should help with long-haul immersion and up to 26 dB of noise-isolation from the ear pads helps keep external distractions to a minimum. Logitech says that the audio drivers have been laser-tuned for optimum acoustic performance and have a frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. There's a noise-canceling microphone with auto-mute to help ensure clarity for all those mission critical vocal commands and up to six different voice morphs to choose from, including alien, cyborg and space squirrel.
