What do you need in a good gaming mouse? Like, really need? You need it to be comfortable. You need its action to be smooth and precise. You need it to have the requisite buttons for basic play, and maybe one or two extra for customisation and macros. When it comes to designing gaming mice, Logitech seems to understand what I, personally, am looking for. I want a no fuss, minimum-chuffa device, and that is always what they give me. Logi’s G903 wireless gaming mouse is a great example of how you can achieve this goal of design simplicity in a premium tier gaming accessory.

The Logitech G512 Carbon Mechanical Keyboard is very well mannered. It has the rapid fire response times you’re looking for in a gaming keyboard, but the click from its switches as you type is minimal. This makes it a board that can do it all — you can use this as a day-to-day office board and not drive your co-workers crazy, and you can use it for fast-paced games when you clock off. Continue reading Tech Review: Logitech G512 Carbon Mechanical Keyboard: Good manners
There is a pervasive assumption among PC gaming hobbyists that wireless accessories like mice are going to be a problem. That corded solutions are always the way to go. For a long time, this rather conventional wisdom was correct, but its getting harder and harder for it to stand up under scrutiny. Devices like Logitech’s Powerplay Wireless Charging mat are a great example of how wireless tech is meeting its cabled counterparts in utility and accuracy.

From Ultimate Ears previous releases of the Boom 2 and Megaboom, the company has just released the satisfying modern upgrades of the Blast and it’s seriously larger friend, the Megablast.

Continue reading Tech Review: Ultimate Ears Blast and Megablast integrate with Alexa to become the perfect home and outdoor speaker
Logitech have made a name for themselves in the world of simple, workman-like office PC peripherals. Their keyboards are often no-frills affairs, designed to be slotted into a business environment without a fuss. It’s not that they’re pedestrian by any stretch, just that they tend to focus on practicality over flashiness. Their newest high-end wireless board, the Logitech CRAFT, follows this trend but still manages to squeeze a bit of personality in their too. Continue reading Tech Review: Logitech CRAFT Wireless Keyboard: Working hard
I might be too old for portable speakers. The market is aimed rather squarely at beautiful young 20-somethings that do things like beach trips or Sunday sessions and require tunes 24/7. I am not this market. But I am a writer who moves from spot-to-spot in the house throughout the day and I do like being able to take a little speaker with me as I go. In this, the UE Wonderboom is a great success. Continue reading Tech Review: UE Wonderboom Portable Speaker: Party on your belt
Among consitituents of the PC master race, one of the most contentious hardware purchases remains the wireless gaming mouse. The pitch is attractive — super precise aiming and high report rates without the need to drag a heavy cable around — but often clashes with what a battery can actually offer. A regular daily gaming habit means your batteries will likely need a recharge before the week is out, a problem that makes most PC gamers nervous about a mid-game conk-out.
Logitech claims to have a solution to this dilemma in their G603 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse. If Logi’s marketing spiel is to be believed, the G603 is capable of delivering 500 hours of continuous gaming on a single pair of AA’s. If you aren’t gaming, that number skyrockets up to a staggering 1400 hours. We’re talking about a wireless gaming mouse that can potentially survive on a single charge for months. Can the G603 back up this rather audacious claim? Continue reading Tech Review: Logitech G603 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse
One of the rarer finds in PC gaming peripherals has always been the combination of mechanical keys and a wireless keyboard. The two schools haven’t played well together historically and a lot manufacturers stopped trying to blend them into a single board years ago. Too much input lag, not enough flash, not enough clack. Gamers didn’t want them.
Logitech, apparently, didn’t get the memo. Or maybe they saw the memo but chose to ignore it. Continue reading Tech Review: Logitech G613 Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
A new review of this camera will not be a timely one. The Logitech C922 Pro Stream has been one of the company’s flagship webcams since it refreshed the older C920 in 2016 and is the weapon of choice for a lot of streamers looking to get their Twitch channels off the ground. Continue reading Tech Review: Logitech C922 Pro Stream 1080p Webcam: Simple and clean
Logitech have made a name for themselves in the tech accessories market for dependable, well-built but ultimately pretty safe devices. There’s rarely any going out on a limb for Logitech, and its a strategy that’s worked out quite well for them. Their G433 gaming headset is no exception.
