  • Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum features Romer G switches, all the colours

    Logitech is on a bit of a roll this month. The company on Friday announced its new G502 Proteus Spectrum gaming mouse, and now, it's adding a new keyboard to its roster. The Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum is its name, and if it sounds a lot like the G910 that we reviewed last year, you aren't too far off. It boasts the same switches developed extensively by Logitech, dubbed Romer G, and the same 16.8-million colour RGB effects, but it has a much smaller desk footprint.

  • Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum available in South Africa

    Logitech, the well-known German peripheral company, has announced that its latest gaming mouse -- the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum -- is heading to South Africa and should go on sale this quarter. If you're wondering why the G502 sounds a lot like the Proteus Core launched earlier last year, that's largely because they're effectively the same mouse. The Spectrum, however, packs RGB customisable lighting. "The G502 Proteus Spectrum has an amazing sensor, and now it's got customisable lighting as well," Logitech's VP and GM of gaming notes. "You can also sync it with your other RGB-enabled Logitech G gaming gear to create...

  • UE Roll review: quirky looks, clever design, brilliant sound

    Ultimate Ears is a mental company, and that's a compliment. It's a company that breaks the mold, and doesn't quite care what its neighbours are doing either. With the UE Roll, the company has shoved everything that makes a portable Bluetooth speaker great into a package no larger than Kobe Bryant's left hand. As the name suggests, it's made by Ultimate Ears, a subsidiary of German peripheral maker Logitech, that focuses on premium audio products. The "Roll" part is a bit more peculiar. It's more flying saucer in shape than any roll I've ever seen. It also seems to have...

  • Logitech G502 Proteus Core review: heads and tails above the rest

    It's really difficult telling gaming mice apart nowadays. All feature highly adjustable DPI or sensitivity settings. All are somewhat colourful and snazzy with splashes of style littering their compact bodies. All mostly arrive with adjustable software packages, allowing the user to adjust the mouse according to games installed or personal preferences. With that said, how the hell do we tell the difference? Believe it or not, but in a world of copy-cat devices it's probably easier than any other field to spot differences. Logitech's G502 Proteus Core continues the German company's Titan naming system but also its legendary build quality. Taking a...

  • Rumoured Logitech G29 Driving Force wheel spotted in the wild

    Logitech has been launching mice and keyboards aplenty these past few months but fans have been wondering when its next racing wheel will be launched. Thanks to new photographs and certificates of approval, we could be looking at the company's new racing system. Leaked by MaxConsole, the Logitech G29 Driving Force is the likely replacement for the slightly dated but much loved G27 (pictured above) on PlayStation 4 and, possibly, PC. However, based on the buttons on the wheel, we'd have to say that it looks like an exclusive for-Sony product. In terms of finish as well, it's not the most...

  • Logitech G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse unboxed [Gallery]

    Logitech has been making some really cutting-edge hardware recently, with the likes of the all-conquering G910 Orion Spark gaming keyboard and the G402 Hyperion Fury gaming mouse. Adding onto the success of these two devices, Logitech launched another contender to the gaming mouse crown called the Logitech G502 Proteus Core.

For starters, the mouse lives up to its changeable name, with a stealthy matte black and shiny plastic design approach. Fit with an oversized thumb rest too for the weary handed, the...

  • Logitech Harmony API brings voice, gesture control to the smart home

    Back in October, we mentioned that peripheral company Logitech had been looking at 2015 as a big year in both the peripherals and smart home spheres, and it has started off with quite a bang with respect to the latter. The company has announced the Logitech Harmony API that will allow developers to plug into the Logitech Harmony platform and create smart home "experiences". Read more: Beyond periphery: Logitech promises a ‘big year’ for South Africa in 2015 The API will also have command of "more than 270,000 home entertainment and automation devices" and companies like SmartThings, IFTTT, Ivee, Myo, Playtabase...

  • Logitech M280 wireless mouse review: the perfect office sidekick

    Like it or not, if you're stuck in an office from nine to five that computer mouse beneath your hand is a rather integral part of your life. Both a seriously depressing and real fact, it means that you should really spend some time deciding what you want and need in a mouse, how comfortable it is and how well it performs. After all, it's about as close a friend you have -- at least that's how I feel about my peripherals anyway. So Logitech's M280, although being a seemingly insignificant release considering their recent gaming peripheral onslaught, is also quite...

  • Logitech G910 Orion Spark review: the best keyboard you’ll ever use

    Can you remember a time when keyboards were nothing more than bottle caps with letters printed on them? Those days are firmly behind us, and gamers can rejoice in keyboards that respond to every flick of the finger. The gaming peripheral industry (a lot like the automotive industry, actually) is as much about pride as technology, so it's quite important that companies develop breakthroughs regularly, regardless of how tiny they may seem. It's especially important to develop these before their competitors. Logitech's the latest company to develop what it's calling "the world's fastest mechanical gaming keyboard." That's quite a statement, but will...

  • Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury gaming mouse review: weapon of choice

    Input is important. Without a keyboard and mouse (two extremely antiquated but necessary forms of input we're still clinging onto), a computer is next to useless. Sure, there are gamepads, Kinect and a whack of other peripherals, but computer control is defined by the humble mouse and keyboard. These are also the two objects that are rarely upgraded by the user. Well, Logitech's impressively named G402 Hyperion Fury gaming mouse is here to change that as it's most definitely the best mouse for gaming or serious business shite. What I liked The G402 is above all, one of the most responsive...
