Logitech G, a brand of Logitech, today announced the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse, a next-generation gaming mouse bringing LIGHTSPEED wireless technology and the HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) sensor to all gamers, in a tried and true form factor. The Logitech G305 uses Logitech G's exclusive LIGHTSPEED wireless technology for a gaming experience that's faster than most wired mice, as well as Logitech G's revolutionary HERO sensor, capable of achieving next generation performance at 10 times the power efficiency of the previous generation of mice. With the Logitech G305, there is no reason to game with a leash.

"For years, we have been committed to delivering wireless performance that was faster than our competitor's wired offerings," said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. "Through our work, wireless has advanced to the point where esports pros are trusting our innovative technology and winning with our wireless mice. With the G305 we wanted to bring the same top-of-the-line technology to everyone. G305 features our HERO sensor and LIGHTSPEED wireless - all for $59.99. There's never been a better time to go wireless."



With the Logitech G305, you can play at peak performance with the industry-leading HERO sensor. This sensor is incredibly power efficient, and provides exceptional responsiveness and accuracy, 400 IPS precision and sensitivity up to 12,000 DPI, with no acceleration or smoothing. Plus, with the ultra-fast LIGHTSPEED wireless technology included in the Logitech G305, you get a faster-than-wired gaming experience with a 1ms report rate, end-to-end optimized wireless connection, and incredible responsiveness and reliability for competition-level performance.

Thanks to the extreme power efficiency of HERO, battery life is incredible. You can get 250 hours of continuous gameplay at a 1ms report rate in Performance mode on just one AA battery. Switch to Endurance mode with a 8ms report rate using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) to extend battery life to up to nine months on a single AA battery.

Even with so much technology inside, the Logitech G305 is not heavy or bulky. It is durable, yet compact and lightweight at only 99 grams for high maneuverability, thanks to its efficient, lightweight mechanical design and ultra-efficient battery usage. Whether you're playing at your desktop rig or on the go with a laptop, the Logitech G305 is a fit. It is available in Black and White.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse is expected to be available at global retailers in May 2018 for a suggested retail price of $59.99.

I wish they'd bring back the G500/G700 series, they were the best models they made and they didn't look like they were made for tweens...
Admittedly this looks ok, but it's rather "bland" in terms of ergonomics and features.

I hope the switches are better here. Been hesitant to buy Logitech mice as after a few mos. they start double clicking and lose their clicky-ness.

The double click problem is typically a capacitor having an issue However, there is one fix to discharge that capacitor and resolve the issue Here's how to do this: Unplug the mouse and/or remove batteries Let it sit for a minute without a power source Click the button rapidly and for about 30 secs. Wait another 30 secs. then insert batteries or plug mouse back into USB Now please verify the problem is resolved.

This piques my interest. The performance is definitely within my requirements and the mouse doesn't look like a transformer. The price is right; I might just pick one up.
