Logitech Laser Mouse G9X Gets Called to Duty

Will show up in November, 2011, at a higher price than the keyboard it is paired with

It was only yesterday that we wrote about a different Logitech mouse, but the company is not done yet, not with a certain new shooter here to demand attention and service.

People who thought Logitech was going to take some time off after releasing the M525 mouse are in for a surprise now.

The company revealed not just a new mouse, but a keyboard as well, called Gaming Keyboard G105.

We aren't going to detail said keyboard, since we already did that in its own article (check it out here).

The Logitech Laser Mouse G9X is supposed to be “ideal for power gamers” and will start shipping next month (November, 2011), for $99.99.

Exchange rates say that is about as much as 72.75 Euro, not that European prices ever actually reflect this.

That said, this sum of cash will net a black and green (or other color) rodent with a weight of up to 28 grams (a weight-tuning system allows for customization).

As people have no doubt guessed by now, a laser sensor is used, with adjustable dpi from “pixel-precise targeting (200 dpi) to lightning-fast maneuvers (up to 5700 dpi).”

Logitech also went for a MicroGear Precision Scroll wheel, which should help with weapon selection and such.

Additionally, it should be possible to accelerate the cursor up to 165 inches per second, depending on the mouse pad surface.

Other specifications include on-the-fly dpi adjustment, USB performance of up to 1,000 reports per second, wide load and precision grips, toggling between two scrolling modes and on-board memory for storing keyboard macros, dpi settings and LED controls in five ready-to-play profiles.

Finally, a small, custom color display allows gamers to select what LED color they like best (a wide spectrum of options exists).
