    Today Logitech unveiled three new G-Series gaming peripherals -- the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930, the Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 and the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510. The newest gaming peripherals from the award-winning Logitech G-Series family are crafted for maximum performance, freeing you from technical limitations so you can immerse yourself in your favorite games.

    "The new G-Series products give every gamer a competitive advantage," said Elliott Chin, Logitech's senior manager of product marketing for gaming. "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."

    Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 -- Level Up Without Being Tied Down
    The Wireless Gaming Headset G930 immerses you in 7.1 Dolby(R) surround sound, creating a detailed, positional soundfield that lets you hear your opponents before they see you. With gaming-grade wireless technology designed specifically for two-way, uncompressed audio streaming, you can focus on your game without being distracted by typical wireless lag or interference annoyances.

    The G930 gaming headset comes fully equipped, with three programmable G-keys that put you in total command over music, voice morphing and chat clients. A memory-foam-lined headband fends off fatigue, while plush ear pads ease pressure points and seal out unwanted noise. The noise-canceling microphone keeps your voice loud and clear for coordinating with your team. And if you're dedicated enough to drain the internal 10-hour battery in a single marathon session, the included charging base lets you easily recharge while you continue to use the headset.

    Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 -- Powerful Control
    Optimized for MMO while still offering the precision needed for FPS, the Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 keeps you comfortable, in control and deep in your game. Its 13 precisely placed controls can be programmed to perform single actions or complex macros with a single click, but are out of the way when you don't need them. The full-speed wireless connection (1000 reports per second) gives you gaming performance without lags coupled with the freedom of wireless.

    The G700 mouse is designed with natural curves to better fit your hand -- so you can keep playing comfortably for as long as you want. The quick-connect charging cable provides both power, even when the mouse is still in use, and data-over-cable capabilities for LAN-friendly connectivity.

    Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510 -- The Tools and Intel You Need to Win
    The Gaming Keyboard G510 delivers the tools you need to win. The keyboard features 18 programmable G-keys with three mode states, giving you up to 54 possible macro settings per game. You can pre-define macros for your favorite games, or you can create new ones on the fly for easy customization.

    The Logitech-exclusive GamePanel LCD gives you real-time game stats and PC performance data. Customizable RGB backlighting makes it easy to keep keyboard controls in plain sight -- day or night. And it includes 3.5 mm audio jacks, so you can plug in an analog headset for clear digital communication over USB.

    Pricing and Availability
    The new G-Series products are available now at www.logitech.com and will be rolling out soon with major retailers.

    The Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 is available for a suggested retail price of $159.99 (U.S.). The Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 is available for a suggested retail price of $99.99 (U.S.). The Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510 is available for a suggested retail price of $119.99 (U.S.).

    Wow. I'm so amazingly disappointed. I will receive tomorrow a Performance MX mouse. Why this wireless 1000 reports/sec appeared now?

    I'm about to freak right about now, and I never freak over "toys"... Should I write Logitech? Go cry at their door to send this one instead? Please advice a man on the verge of nervous breakdown...

    DanishDevil was first, he already posted this yesterday. Although he didn't have the specs.

    The keyboard looks like a G17 (is that the one that costs same as a 2nd hand car?) and I would like it but not paying £100 for that.

    The mouse looks better than I thought it did yesterday as the pic was from a different angle.

    And well, I don't believe in gaming headsets so no comment.
    DanishDevil says thanks.

    headset looks like a wireless G35 which is promising, as long as we dont have a period where the volume doesnt go high enough like when the G35 was released.

    with my G35 I always found the cable to be the most cumbersome thing by far.

    lol another chinese guy with the same first name as me!! Im not alone!!!

    poor guy...His parents probably named him after the kid in E.T just like mine (I hate my parents)

    -----

    mouse looks like a good replacement for my G9 - really starting to hate the look of this mouse... but I still want the Cooler Master Sentinel Advance. or a Rokkat Kova. I want a mouse i can really mold my hand around so to speak.

    the keyboard looks pretty bling too.

    for the G700: M$ Sidewinder X8 FTW! :p (or the Razer Mamba if you want to clean out your bank account:wtf:)
    for the G930: Can't even compare to the ROCCAT Kave 5.1 headset:nutkick:
    for the G510: I've never understood the point of having a screen on your keyboard?? Isn't the point to know your k/b well enough to never have to look at it?

    Return it in 14-days? At least its possible in EU if you shopped via eShop. And it should be in USA too..

    Btw. if you want to play on Performace MX, you are crazy..

    The M$ Sidewinder X8 also charges via USB when you connect it, just as the Razer Mamba, and apparently the G700.

    What I will write now will sound like I'm advertising for Logitech so read at your own risk...

    I had a MX 1100, from a Wave Pro set. It had some connection problems, so I wrote to Support. I didn't want to part with the MX 1100 mouse, since I read around the forums that many people had such issues, and even constructed antennae out of tin foil for the receiver. I solved the issue 99% with a extension USB cord.

    But the guy from support INSISTED my MX1100 was "severely malfunctioning" and wanted to give me a new one... so in the end I said OK... what the heck. When I sent my approval mail, he replied that I will be given a Performance MX instead, as MX 1100 was no longer manufactured...

    The mouse is already on the road, and is due to arrive tomorrow. I already wrote Logitech asking if there is a solution to my problem... get a G700 instead of a Performance MX... will see what they respond.

    I'm not a gamer. I do play games, but it's not like I do this for a living... I don't care if it lags a little or stuff... I played games with my trusty Microsoft 3 buttons mouse for years, and it was maybe 400 dpi, with no advanced features.
    But I do graphics almost all day long for a living and I surely appreciate a good, precise, and ergonomic mouse...

    i closed it when i linked to here, just to keep the discussion in one place. some questions were asked and answers given, which imo made it worth linking to.


    i'd have merged the threads, but knowing my luck it'd send the news one to the general hardware forum instead of the other way around.

    The mouse and keyboard are cool, but for sound, please choose something that would deserve that money, like Sennheiser. I'm pretty sure they have stuff for gamers too.

    the headphones look solid - they'd still look the part if you were to wear them down the shootin range. obviously they wouldnt protect your hearing as good as the actual headsets they wear down at the range but hey, style is everything. go deaf n look f**king good doin it at the same time.

    Damn. I am very, VERY SAD now.
    Response from Logitech, and there is no possible Performance MX - G700 exchange. How nasty can that be?

    This day will live as a mourning day in all eternity, and I shall pass this on to my offspring, so the future generations will look back in time at this gruesome infamy their ancestor had to suffer.

    Logitech, Logitech, I'm so losing my newly acquired faith in you...

    I'll post what I posted in DanishDevils thread about the new G series stuff:

    I've had the G930 for quite a while now, and it's basically the G35, except wireless. It's a pretty kickass headset. It has slightly richer sound than the Razer Megalodon, but not quite as good 7.1 sound. None of those two really match a real surround headset with several speakers though. All in all a really nice headset. Battery time was decent, about six to seven hours, but you can use them with the charger connected, if needed.

    Haven't had a chance to check out the keyboard yet, but my experience with other gaming keyboards from Logitech has been good. I've got both the G15 models, and they're nice keyboards. Never really found much use for the little LCD screen on them though. Might as well go for something like the G110, which is basically the same, except the little LCD screen.

    I've used a lot of different gaming mice over the years, including several Razer ones. I've got the Razer Mamba, which is a great wireless mouse, but really should have had a couple more buttons. I gave the MS Sidewinder X8 away, not because it's bad, I just had too many mice lying around, and chose to keep the Mamba instead. My experience with the G700 is that it is the best Wireless gaming mouse I've used to date. Response is great and the drivers are quite good, with loads of different settings you can tweak. You can change profiles on the fly, which works great for different apps and games. The design is really comfortable. I've played some of my best rounds in Bad Company 2 since I switched from the Qpad 5K to the G700. Well worth the money.

    As to Mussels question about charging: You connect a usb cable to the front of the mouse, just like you can with the Mamba. When connected to usb the wireless shuts off and the usb takes over. More or less seamlessly. Battery time is decent. I've set it to the highest of the three power settings, one is normal, one is light gaming and the last is hard/heavy gaming. Battery is still going after two days of heavy use, including 10+ hours in Bad Company 2. You might wanna keep the charger cable close by though, or just use a normal AA battery in case the battery dies on you.

    I am a proud owner of a G15 V1 and as of right now I couldn't possibly justify upgrading. Inline audio really? I don't need that, I have a nice sound card; in fact I doubt its any better than your cases front panel audio connections hooked up to onboard mobo audio.

    The RGB backlighting is cool but thats it really. I don't think I'm going to pay another premium for that screen until it starts to support newer games.

    Agree about the G15. I've had both, but given away the first version. Right now I'm using the G110, with sound. Never really used the sound part of it though (except for a couple of hours when reviewing it), I've got a decent Creative X-Fi card for that.
