Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum wireless gaming mouse starts at $150

Logitech has introduced a new wireless gaming mouse called the G900 Chaos Spectrum. A professional-grade wireless options, the mouse features an advanced optical gaming sensor, a flexible ambidextrous design, customizable lighting, mechanical pivot button design and lightweight construction.

The company hopes to overcome the stigma of wireless mouse devices by offering the G900 Chaos Spectrum with a lag-free wireless performance, a long battery life and the backing of professional eSports gamers.

“We talked with eSports pros and none of them love the cable on a wired mouse,” said Ujesh Desai vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech. “They wish they had the freedom of wireless but the performance and reliability of a wired mouse. So that was the design goal we gave our engineers, to build a wireless gaming mouse that was faster than the competition’s wired gaming mice. G900 delivers on this promise, and we’re confident it’s the best gaming mouse we’ve ever built.”

The device offers a one-millisecond report rate, and highly optimized 2.4GHz wireless connection. Logitech boasts that players will be able to use the mouse continuously for 32 hours on a single charge (24 hours with default lighting).

When you’re running low on power, the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) Battery Assistant will notify you. There’s no need to stop playing to recharge as the mouse seamlessly switches between wireless and wired modes when plugged in. A full charge from empty only takes about two hours the company explained.

The PMW3366 is Logitech’s state-of-the-art optical gaming sensor, which includes the exclusive clock-tuning technology. The new device offers zero smoothing or filtering across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum can be transformed into a left- or right-handed mouse, using the included magnetic button covers.

The mouse is constructed for a non-prescriptive grip that accommodates a variety of palm, claw and fingertip holds. Using LGS, lighting color and brightness can be programmed to match your style, system and environment from a palette of up to 16.8 million colors. Bring your mouse to life with “breathing” light patterns, or set your lighting to sleep when you aren’t using your system.

The buttons of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum have been engineered to deliver a crisp, clean click feel with rapid click. A metal spring tensioning system and exclusive mechanical pivoting hinges are built into the main left and right keys. This system reduces the pre-travel distance between the buttons and switches, while also minimizing the force required to click, enabling faster recovery after each click. The result is a heightened response and a consistently fast, accurate and reliable click performance.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning April 2016 for a suggested retail price of $149.99 and €179.
