HERO Optical Sensor
To achieve the goal of creating a high-performance wireless gaming mouse that also offers long-lasting battery performance, we invented a brand new sensor. HERO, which stands for High Efficiency Rated Optical sensor, provides next-generation efficiency – creating the best optical sensor ever designed for wireless gaming. HERO offers precision and accuracy at 12,000 DPI with no acceleration or smoothing and 10x the power efficiency of previous generation sensors.
Next Generation Wireless Gaming Mouse
The Logitech G603 delivers a completely wireless experience with performance high enough for even the most demanding gamers. It’s the first gaming mouse to feature Logitech G’s HERO sensor with exceptional accuracy and precision with sensitivity up to 12,000 DPI. The Logitech G603 harnesses HERO’s efficiency potential to deliver over 500 hours of non-stop gaming at maximum performance. It uses LIGHTSPEED wireless technology to deliver professional-grade wireless performance and unrivaled reliability, even surpassing many wired gaming mice.
High-Performance Wireless Mechanical Keyboard
Designed for a wireless world, the Logitech G613 features LIGHTSPEED wireless technology for a super fast 1ms report rate and Bluetooth for multi-device connectivity. It delivers up to 18 months of gaming on two AA batteries. The Logitech G613 also includes six programmable G-keys, putting custom macro sequences and in-app commands at your fingertips. It also features Logitech G’s exclusive Romer-G mechanical key switches, providing competition grade performance with incredible feel and durability. Romer-G switches actuate at a distance of 1.5mm, which is up to 25 percent shorter and faster than the leading competitor. Combined with a low-force 45g actuation, Romer-G switches provide near-instant responsiveness and help minimize fatigue over long gaming sessions.
Table Sized Mouse Pad
Designed for players who value wide playspaces and clean setups, the Logitech G840 is an extra-large mouse pad that you can spread across your desk. Set your keyboard and mouse on top of it for a cleaner, more uniform look.
