Logitech has announced the G900 Chaos Spectrum wireless mouse. The company describes it as a professional grade wireless gaming mouse that “delivers a lag-free wireless performance and long battery life that’s trusted by professional eSports gamers.”
The big news about the G900 is the substantial battery life, as Logitech claims it will be able to last for up to 32 hours of non-stop gaming (24 hours if the lighting is turned on). Logitech’s Gaming Software Battery Assistant will alert users when the battery is low, and it will apparently only take two hours to go from a depleted battery back to full power. Like most modern wireless controllers, the G900 can still be used while the charging cable is plugged in.
Naturally, this top-tier mouse uses the company’s PMW3366 (a derivative of Pixart’s popular PMW3310) “flawless” sensor, with a DPI range of 200-12000. The two main mouse buttons feature a mechanical pivot button design, which reduces pre-travel distance between the buttons and switches, while minimising the force required to click.
To address any latency concerns, Logitech’s internal testing revealed that the G900 registered mouse clicks faster than two wired mice that’s incidentally very popular among pro gamers: the Steelseries Rival 300 and the Razer Deathadder Chroma.
The G900 also sports one of the more ambitious ambidextrous designs. Instead of simply retaining a neutral shape, it also features magnetic button covers to allow users to alter the layout of the mouse. It probably won’t matter to most of the population, but is great news for the lefties who often have trouble shopping for high performance peripherals.
Logitech plans to have the G900 Chaos Spectrum on sale in Malaysia from the middle of April 2016 for a recommended price of RM699.
