Logitech G Announces Prodigy Series Gaming Peripherals

Logitech today announced the Prodigy series, a family of gaming gear that was designed to enhance the way you play. The new series, which includes two mice, a keyboard and a headset, all share the same attributes of high-performance technology, exceptional comfort, and a sleek and modern design.

"We love building products for hardcore gamers, and we'll never give that up," said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech G. "With the explosion of play across all ages and skill sets we knew we needed something more. Our new Logitech G Prodigy series gives all gamers access to our best technology. It's gaming gear made exclusively for everyone." The Logitech G Prodigy series includes the Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse, Logitech G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse, Logitech G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard, and the Logitech G231 Prodigy Headset.
Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mice
The G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse and Logitech G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse deliver long-lasting comfort, thanks to their lightweight, ergonomic design. Rubber grips on the left and right sides give you added control, and the included 10g removable weight allows you to increase the weight if you prefer a heavier mouse.

Both mice are up to eight times faster than standard mice, which means when they are moved or clicked, the on-screen response is near-instantaneous. Each mouse has advanced button tensioning that helps keep the left and right mouse buttons primed to click, reducing the force required to click, delivering exceptional responsiveness. These mice feature the PMW3366, the world's most advanced gaming mouse sensor, preferred by eSports pros worldwide. Exceptionally precise and consistent, the PMW3366 gives you the confidence of quicker responses and more accurate targeting. The mice can be used directly out-of-the-box, or with LGS you can fully configure the mouse to customize your lighting, buttons and DPI settings. Specifically, the G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse is equipped with the same energy efficient, high performance wireless technology as the award-winning Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum. The highly optimized 2.4 GHz wireless connection has 1ms report rate for incredible lag-free responsiveness that outperforms competitive solutions, including wired ones.

Logitech G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard
Designed for gamers of all levels, the G213 Prodigy keyboard features a sleek, spill-resistant design that is comfortable and durable. An integrated palm rest and adjustable feet let you set your keyboard to the ideal position, so it feels perfect during extended gaming sessions. The G213 Prodigy keyboard brings together the best in tactile feel and performance with keys built specifically for gamers. Each key on the G213 Prodigy is tuned to deliver ultra-quick, responsive feedback that's up to four times faster than standard keyboards. Plus, its anti-ghosting gaming matrix is tuned for optimal gaming performance, keeping you in control when you press multiple gaming keys simultaneously.

The G213 Prodigy keyboard features five RGB illumination zones that can be personalized from a spectrum of up to 16.8 million colors. Change colors to match your setup, specific games, or showcase your favorite colors, and synchronize lighting effects with other Logitech G devices using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). Low light leakage around each keycap means more light comes through the lettering and less spills out around the keycaps, making it easier to find your keys in the dark.

Additionally, the dedicated media controls allow you to play, pause, skip and adjust the volume of your music with a touch of a button, without having to switch out of the game.

Logitech G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset
Using 40 mm neodymium drivers, the G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset delivers high-quality stereo sound that keeps you immersed in your PC or console game from start to finish. The earcups are covered with carefully selected sports performance cloth for a comfortable, soft touch even after hours of use. And they slip off easily for washing to keep the headset in top shape. The earcups are also designed to be slim and light, without skimping on audio quality.

A crystal-clear unidirectional boom mic can be positioned to pick up your voice alone, ensuring that you will be heard loudly and clearly. And when not in use, the mic can be folded back into the headphones. In-line audio controls for volume and microphone mute are within easy reach on the connection cable.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse, Logitech G213 Prodigy RGB Gaming Keyboard and Logitech G231 Prodigy Gaming Headset are expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning September 2016. All three products have a suggested retail price of $69.99. In Europe the Logitech G403 Prodigy Gaming Mouse has a suggested retail price of €69.99, the Logitech G213 RGB Gaming Keyboard has a suggested retail price of €79.99 and the Logitech G231 Gaming Headset has a suggested retail price of €59.99. The Logitech G403 Prodigy Wireless Gaming Mouse is also expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning September 2016 for a suggested retail price of $99.99 and €119.

So this is supposed to be their entry level "gamers" stuff, but at those prices, I don't think Logitech understands their target market...

As someone who has had a G15, G19 and currently using a G19s I hear you! I just couldn't live without my LCD and when I bought my G19s I was very tempted to just buy a 2nd one and put it away.

G15(2007 update) was the only Logitech product actually lasted a long time for me. Now I have moved onto a mechanical keyboard but I sure miss that LCD display, at first when I purchased the keyboard I thought it was a gimmick but damn it was useful feature that I am missing sorely.

I had the first G15(blue)The only reason I replaced it was I accidentally tore the ribbon for the LCD when I was cleaning it. I killed my G19 with wine...so now on the G19s but yeah I can't live without the LCD I use AIDA64 and it lets me set up to 6 different pages of any sensor data available however I want.

I'm in the exact same boat... my orange G15's key membrane wore out and getting a replacement where I live would've cost me as much as a new G19, so I just went for the G19, which is still going strong thankfully. But by the time it gives up the ghost I fear there will be no more local stock.

FFS Logitech, why can't you give your customers what they want, instead of what YOU THINK they want?

Yeah I should really go back and hope they still have one left and just put in the closet, but they aren't cheap either...

I think that might have been reason for the G15 update, mine was updated version and had fixed display. I used it for clock, media player and AIDA64 . In first few weeks of starting on mechanical keyboard out of old habit I was staring down at keyboard to look for time and track info.

Wow a membrane keyboard for 70 USD. You can get mechanical boards with cherry switches at that price...
