CES 2009: Logitech


Logitech made a big splash at the "CES Unveiled" event this year. They showed off the new G series mouse - the G9x - and the G13 and G19 keyboards. The mouse is an upgrade to the G9 and comes with a 5000 dpi sensor. It is priced at up to 90 Euros, which may be a bit much for some. Read on for information and pictures of the new keyboards.


The G13 keyboard is a compact pad, with a limited amount of buttons, which can be programmed. This should give you the option of having all the needed buttons at your fingertips, while moving the mouse with the other hand. Last, but not least, there is the G19. It is a step up from the G15 and features a full color LCD screen. It is capable of displaying all kinds of information, including pictures and videos.Source: Logitech

Very cool. I wonder how the one peripheral will match a Belkin in performance.

If I could afford a G19 I would get one. But then again I never did use the LCD on my G15.

I'm with Binge on the performance wise of the G13.. It should be better, but one will never know.. As for the Keyboard... Drop it down 60 bucks from what they have it as on price wise, and I'd think about it...

That mouse looks like something heavy was dropped on it and flattened it.:laugh: Might just be the angle though....

Logitech mice usually look pretty decent,but that looks damned ugly imo, That fact alone would stop me buying one.

I think the best looking mouse is the G5 in gun metal (I have one :))

I love Logitech - Great designs for a cheap price. but i think this is a little overkill. My EX90 will do just fine for now :)

I just updated my G15 driver for win7 to the latest one,it comes with support for the G19 keyboard.Also the backlit keys on the G19 can be any color you like.

just looking at the G9, me and my housemate brainstormed.

1. seems useless, as any videos are better on your main screen.

2. If it works as a 'monitor' in windows, it may be useful to 'fullscreen' your favourite MP3 software, and see playlists/info while gaming.

3. would be hilarious to use as a minimap in supreme commander, if it does work as a monitor.

That keyboard is perfect for me because I like to watch scrubs when playing a game without having to minimize it to watch particularly hilarious bits :D
