Logitech Renews Commitment to PC Gaming, Introduces New Lineup



  Logitech Renews Commitment to PC Gaming, Introduces New Lineup

Business Wire

NEWARK, Calif. -- March 20, 2013

Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the new Logitech® G line,
reflecting its new approach to PC gaming. The new lineup includes six
redesigned mice and keyboard favorites and two new headsets.

“With Logitech G, we put our passion for science to work for you,” said
Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming business group. “Just
as gamers are compelled to beat levels, our engineers are compelled to test
scientific theories. For close to 20 years the relentless pursuit of what’s
next has been our game – and we’re pretty darn good at it. With Logitech G we
will continue to push the limits of speed, precision, reliability – even
intuitiveness. We do it because gamers expect us to push the limits as far as
they do. Every inspired design choice and late-night engineering argument
serves but one purpose, to help gamers play their best. When science wins –
gamers win.”

Using infrared technology, Logitech studied the interaction between hand and
device during gameplay. As a result, gamers can expect to see several
advancements in the new Logitech G lineup.

To improve durability and comfort, advanced surface materials were added to
strategic tactile zones discovered through testing. For heavy contact zones,
Logitech has added fingerprint-resistant coatings, while palm areas feature a
hydrophobic coating to help keep your hands from sticking. Depending on the
model, the mice also have a soft or dry grip for increased comfort and
control. The two keyboards feature a double UV coating on the keys for extra
durability and long life, and a fingerprint-resistant coating on the
faceplate.

In addition, the Logitech G100s Optical Gaming Mouse and G400s Optical Gaming
Mouse feature exclusive Delta Zero sensor technology. Optimized for
high-accuracy cursor control, this new sensor technology accurately responds
to hand movements. Plus, all of the new Logitech G mice have low-friction
polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) feet, which reduce drag for faster motions,
smoother cursor movements and improved accuracy.

The lineup includes:

Logitech G700s Rechargeable Gaming Mouse

The Logitech® G700s Rechargeable Gaming Mouse is a wireless gaming mouse with
the report rate of a wired gaming mouse. In fact, it maintains a consistent
report rate, whether over 2.4 GHz wireless or connected by USB, up to eight
times faster than a standard USB mouse. If your game goes long, you can keep
playing and recharge the mouse simultaneously by switching seamlessly to a
data-over-cable connection using a standard Micro-USB cable. The mouse has a
durable hydrophobic coating on the palm area that helps keep your palm from
sticking to the mouse, and dry grip on the sides ensures a steady hand. You
can elevate your in-game skills with 13 programmable controls that let you
program single actions, complex macros with multiple keystrokes, repeating and
user-defined delays, when you download Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). The
Logitech G700s Rechargeable Gaming Mouse is expected to be available for a
suggested retail price of $99.99.

Logitech G500s Laser Gaming Mouse

For FPS gamers, the Logitech® G500s Laser Gaming Mouse packs a gaming grade
laser for precise cursor control on a wide variety of surfaces and a
hyper-fast dual-mode scroll wheel. It also features a durable hydrophobic
coating to help keep your palm from sticking and dry grip for a steady hand.
It has up to 27 grams of customizable weight and center of gravity adjustment,
meaning you can tune it to your preferred play style. You can switch from
pixel-precise targeting at 200 DPI to lightning-fast maneuvers at up to 8200
DPI with two buttons sitting in easy reach near your index finger. The
Logitech G500s Laser Gaming Mouse features 10 programmable controls, which
require LGS. The optional software can also be used to reassign game commands
or multi-command macro. The Logitech G500s Laser Gaming Mouse is expected to
be available for a suggested retail price of $69.99.

Logitech G400s Optical Gaming Mouse

The Logitech® G400s Optical Gaming Mouse pushes the high standards set by the
Logitech® MX518 Optical Gaming Mouse and Logitech® Optical Gaming Mouse G400.
This full-feature gaming mouse is built specifically for FPS games and
includes Logitech’s exclusive Delta Zero sensor technology for high-accuracy
cursor control. It also has a hydrophobic coating to help keep your hand from
sticking, as well as soft-touch grip areas and fingerprint-resistant coatings
on the primary buttons to resist fading. With LGS, you can customize the eight
programmable buttons, and the mouse also features primary mechanical
microswitches rated to a 20 million-click lifespan. The programmable buttons
allow you to shift through multiple DPI settings to quickly select on-screen
options, scan the game map, pull off 180-degree flick-shots at 4000 DPI or
downshift for pixel-precise FPS sniper targeting or RTS unit selection at 400
DPI – all conveniently located above and below the scroll wheel. The Logitech
G400s Optical Gaming Mouse is expected to be available for a suggested retail
price of $59.99.

Logitech G100s Optical Gaming Mouse

The Logitech® G100s Optical Gaming Mouse is simple to use and specifically
crafted for your favorite RTS and MOBA games. Built to extend the powerful
legacy of the Logitech® G1 Mouse and the Logitech®  Gaming Mouse G100, it
features buttons designed for heavy clicking and the Logitech exclusive Delta
Zero sensor technology for accuracy at any hand speed. While a typical mouse
cannot withstand the rigors of intense gaming, the ultra-durable Logitech
G100s Gaming Mouse has upgraded primary mechanical microswitches rated to a 20
million-click lifespan. The mouse also has a durable hydrophobic coating on
the palm area to help keep your hand from sticking, and the primary buttons
have fingerprint-resistant coating to prevent fading. Whether using claw grip
or conventional, with small hands or large – the ambidextrous inverted
trapezoid shape encourages a sure grip through long sessions. The Logitech
G100s Optical Gaming Mouse is expected to be available for a suggested retail
price of $39.99.

Logitech G19s Gaming Keyboard

The Logitech® G19s Gaming Keyboard feeds you a steady flow of intel, including
vital stats, game specific apps and customizable information panels, all in
full color on an integrated, adjustable GamePanel™ LCD. With custom-color
backlighting, you can choose from 16 million shades and assign a specific
color to every profile and profile mode in the same game. The keyboard also
features advanced surface materials for durability and comfort. A hydrophobic
coating on the palm rest helps keep your hands from sticking, while the
durable double UV coating gives keys extra long life. With LGS, you can
configure the 12 programmable G-Keys with up to 36 different functions across
three different modes with three macros per key. Two High-Speed USB 2.0 ports
let you transfer data to and from accessories – such as MP3 players and flash
drives – while also charging battery powered devices. The keyboard also
includes anti-ghosting over 26 keys so you can perform multiple complex
actions without interference or ghosting. The Logitech G19s Gaming Keyboard is
expected to be available for a suggested retail price of $199.99.

Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard

To make complex actions simple, the Logitech® G510s Gaming Keyboard provides
18 programmable G-keys, which allow you to configure up to 54 different
functions across three different modes, with three macros per key, when you
download LGS. In addition to custom-color backlighting it features a backlit
GamePanel™ LCD, so not only can you stay informed with real-time game stats,
system information and VoIP communication data, you can also develop or add
community-created applets to work with your GamePanel. It also has a
hydrophobic coating on the palm rest to help keep your hands from sticking,
and a double UV coating on the keys for extra durability and long life. The
Logitech G510s Gaming Keyboard is expected to be available for a suggested
retail price of $119.99.

Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset

Similar to the Logitech® G35 Surround Sound Headset and Logitech® Wireless
Gaming Headset G930, the Logitech® G430 Surround Sound Gaming Headset is
powered by Dolby® Headphone technology to create an immersive 360-degree sound
field that gives you the advantage of hearing what you can’t see in a game,
from footsteps to sirens. With Dolby Headphone 7.1 surround sound, you’ll hear
up to seven discrete channels of audio data plus a Low Frequency Effects
channel. Similar to the Logitech G230 Surround Sound Gaming Headset, this
headset also provides washable ear cups that offer a soft, comfortable fit for
long gaming sessions. When you want to be heard, the noise-canceling mic can
be adjusted to pick up your voice alone. When the mic is not in use, you can
easily fold it up and out of the way. The Logitech G430 Surround Sound Gaming
Headset is expected to be available for a suggested retail price of $79.99.

Logitech G230 Stereo Gaming Headset

The Logitech® G230 Stereo Gaming Headset delivers high-quality stereo sound by
using 40 mm neodymium drivers to keep you immersed in the game from start to
finish for FPS, MMO or adventure-type games. And because marathon gaming
yields heat and sweat, the new headset features ear pieces covered with
washable performance-sport cloth for a comfortable, soft touch even after
hours of use. With a flexible, noise-canceling folding mic, sound is focused
on your voice, practically eliminating background noise for better audio
quality. In-line audio controls for volume and microphone mute are within easy
reach on the connection cable. The Logitech G230 Stereo Gaming Headset is
expected to be available for a suggested retail price of $59.99.

Availability

Each of these products is expected to be available in the U.S. beginning in
