Logitech is a brand that is well respected and used by PC Gamers for years, My first Gaming mouse was the Logitech G400, and while other brands have popped up in recent years they’ve always produced solid mice for gaming and general desktop use.
Logitech has updated their gaming mouse lineup with the following.
Logitech announced that three additional mice in its lineup will be upgraded with Logitech G’s exclusive, high performance HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) 16K sensor. The new additions to the HERO line-up include the Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse, Logitech G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse, and Logitech G403 HERO Gaming Mouse, all of which are designed for unrivaled performance and incredible accuracy for gamers of all levels.
The flagship G903 is upgraded with the best-in-class HERO 16K sensor, which delivers precise gameplay and 10x the power efficiency of the previous generation. This results in an incredible 140 hours of battery. The G903 includes: Logitech G’s LIGHTSPEED Wireless technology, compatibility with Logitech G’s POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System, immersive 16.8M LIGHTSYNC RGB, ambidextrous design, and up to 11 programmable buttons for precise game play.
Designed to comfortably fit in your hand, the G703 LIGHTSPEED is also upgraded with the HERO 16K sensor for incredible tracking performance and accuracy. With the G703, Logitech focused on reducing overall weight to 95g, while improving battery life to up to 35 hours on a single charge. LIGHTSPEED Wireless technology provides precise gameplay at 16,000 max DPI and zero smoothing, plus enhanced wireless performance, and it is compatible with the Logitech G POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System.
Rounding out the updated line-up is the G403 HERO. With a lightweight, ergonomically designed shape, and new HERO sensor, the wired G403 HERO gives users the tracking accuracy and performance they need to win. It also features LIGHTSYNC RGB, a 10g removable weight and six programmable buttons that can be tuned to gamers’ exact preferences.
To help gamers get the most from their gear, all three gaming mice can be customized using Logitech’s G HUB advanced gaming software. Featuring a clean and modern interface, the software allows gamers to quickly personalize their gear per game, share and download profiles with others and more.
