Logitech Australia today unveiled extensions to its G-series line of gaming peripherals: the Logitech® Gaming Mouse G500 and the Logitech® Gaming Headset G330. The Gaming Mouse G500 refreshes the Logitech® G5 Laser Mouse with the latest gaming-grade laser engine and a battle-worn appearance, while the Gaming Headset G330 delivers extended comfort.
“As more and more people make gaming in the living room with family and friends the new night out, Logitech continues to push the envelope with the Logitech G-series.” said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming. “If you’re getting serious about gaming – or have already seen the light – then the best way to dive ever deeper into the game is by putting the G500 mouse in your good hand and the G330 headset on your head. Victory is up to you.”
For gamers, especially the more than 11 million people playing World of Warcraft® or the millions on a tour of Call of Duty®, the Gaming Mouse G500 and the Gaming Headset G330 help ensure that every late-night gaming session is victorious.
Logitech Gaming Mouse G500
The successor to the Logitech® G5 Laser Mouse, the Logitech Gaming Mouse G500 delivers game-changing precision at any hand speed. With its gaming-grade laser engine you can rev up your intensity – reaching a maximum hand speed of 165 inches per second (ips) and a maximum acceleration force of 30 gs. An on-the-fly adjustable-dpi gives you a good level of precision – from pixel-precise targeting (200 dpi) to lightning-fast maneuvers (up to 5700 dpi). (The dpi can be adjusted, after installing the Logitech® Gaming Software, in increments of 100 dpi). Full-speed USB also helps ensure that the G500 mouse is smooth and responsive.
The G500 mouse features an updated shape – with a broader thumb rest and a smoothed-out pinkie ledge – making the new Logitech gaming mouse more comfortable for extended periods of use.
The onboard memory lets you save and take the settings for your favorite title with you – no software required. If you’re sensitive to weight, the G500 mouse offers weight tuning, including up to 27 grams of extra weight for personalised feel and control. The additional weights fit into a removable chassis and, when not in use, can be stored in the accompanying case. A dual-mode scroll wheel provides click-to-click scrolling that’s suitable for weapon selection. And ten programmable buttons put valuable macros in your hand.
Logitech Gaming Headset G330
The lightweight G330 headset combats fatigue with its adjustable, behind-the-head design – the first of its kind for gaming headsets – that slides for a personalised fit. To further relieve common pressure points on your head, the G330 headset features a soft silicone-lined headband and pivoting ear pads. And with durable steel spring at its core, the flexible headband is designed to withstand any wear and tear.
A noise-canceling microphone reduces background noise and rotates out of the way when you’re not using it. The in-line audio controls let you adjust the volume or mute the microphone without pausing the action. An included USB adapter lets you choose to connect digitally to any USB port for enhanced audio or directly to your PC sound card via 3.5 mm jacks.
