Logitech on Tuesday expanded its G-series gaming peripherals lineup with three new products announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas: the G19 gaming keyboard (US$199.99), the G35 surround sound headset ($129.99), and the G9x laser mouse ($99.99). The first two will be available in March, while the third will ship in April.
The G19 keyboard features a tiltable, 320 by 240 pixel display that offer up in-game information for over 60 titles, including World of Warcraft, as well as VoIP (voice over IP) communication data, a clock, CPU load, or even pictures or videos. Users can switch between types of information without leaving their games. The G19 also includes 12 programmable G-keys with three macros per key and two USB 2.0 ports.
The G35 headset features 7.1 surround sound with second-generation Dolby Headphone technology, an ear-enclosing design that shuts out ambient sounds, and an adjustable, noise-canceling microphone. Software is also included that morphs users' voices to sound like a cyborg, a giant, a mutant, a space squirrel, a troll, or an alien. Three G-keys on the left earpiece allow one-touch voice morphing, with additional controls for volume, microphone mute, and surround sound adjustments.
The G9x laser mouse offers adjustable dpi, from 200 to 5000 dpi, two interchangeable, snap-on grips, onboard memory for up to five game profiles, a weight-tuning system that can add up to 28 grams of extra weight, and custom color LEDs for matching the LEDs of other peripherals.
