Logitech has taken the wraps off its latest offering in the wireless gaming mice lineup, the G900 Chaos Spectrum, which the company asserts is the "most advanced" and best gaming mouse currently around.
The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum mouse is essentially targeted at gamers and packs in the latest wireless technology, as well as an advanced optical gaming sensor. The G900 Chaos Spectrum houses the PMW3366 optical sensor, which supports 200 to 12,000 DPI.
The G900 Chaos Spectrum is also ambidextrous so people who are left- or right-handed can both use it with ease. However, the mouse is not limited to being just operable on either hand but can be customized so that it fits as a right-handed or left-handed model, thanks to the magnetic cover buttons.
Moreover, the mouse has customizable lighting color - up to 16.8 million colors - and users have the option of deploying the Logitech Gaming Software to even customize the lighting color and brightness according to their preference.
Users can even calibrate the sensor depending on the surface on which the mouse will be used. This aspect will aid the responsiveness of the mouse immensely.
The G900 Chaos Spectrum also wins brownie points for being lightweight. It weighs only 3.8 ounces, thanks to the sleek wall molding and the hollow "spoked" design of the hyper-scroll wheel.
The wireless mouse measures 5.12 x 2.64 x 1.57 inches and is pretty compact. Thanks to its near weightlessness and compactness, the G900 Chaos Spectrum has a swift response to movement and is comfortable to use for long periods.
The wireless mouse is so powerful that it can outperform rivals, both wired and wireless, with ease. It can connect to over 2.4 GHz and one also has the option of converting the G900 Chaos Spectrum into a wired mouse through a 6-foot-long cable that can be connected on the front of the device. The cable will enable users to charge the mouse even when using it.
"We talked with eSports pros and none of them love the cable on a wired mouse. They wish they had the freedom of wireless but the performance and reliability of a wired mouse. So that was the design goal we gave our engineers, to build a wireless gaming mouse that was faster than the competition's wired gaming mice," noted Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech. "G900 delivers on this promise, and we're confident it's the best gaming mouse we've ever built."
The power efficiency of the mouse has also been given a lot of thought and Logitech has succeeded in offering 32 hours or 24 hours (with default lighting) of continuous use for the G900 Chaos Spectrum.
The G900 Chaos Spectrum mouse from Logitech is slated to go on sale in April in Europe and the United States and will set consumers back by €179 or $149.99. Gamers can preorder the mouse from the company's product page.
