  • 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...

  • Beyond periphery: Logitech promises a ‘big year’ for South Africa in 2015

    Logitech‘s a rarity at the moment — it’s a technology company on the rise. Revenue has increased year on year (pdf), and that trend is set to continue into the next fiscal quarter. It’s looking to become a key player in the South African market, as well as the world, building beyond But what is the company’s secret and what, more importantly for us, can South African expect from this computer gear giant in the coming years? Well, it turns out quite a bit in fact. Gearburn sat down with Logitech’s Country Sales Manager for South Africa, Robert Anderson, to find...

  • Enter the lag-killer: Logitech’s G402 Hyperion Fury ‘world’s fastest mouse ever’

    The mouse is the computer gamer’s quintessential peripheral. More often than not, a slight lag in response could mean the difference between a record-shattering killstreak or a suicide mission. Enter Logitech’s answer to lag — the G402 Hyperion Fury — the world’s “fastest gaming mouse ever.” The mouse embodies Logitech’s peripheral’s distinct design language, looking more like a tiny Transformer than a cursor controller. It can track at over 12 metres per second, which for first-person shooter enthusiasts with Spiderman-like reactions, is a goldmine. Logitech lauds the device as a peripheral bar none: “Its light weight design, combined with the precision...

  • Logitech Z200 review: stylish speakers, stifled sound

    I’ve been a happy Logitech customer for a while now. Seven years in fact. Its ever popular X-530s are still in my company, tickling my inner ears with its gorgeous sound delivery. But, the speakers are a hassle to keep organised. Some customers desire quality sound without the complications of a 5.1 setup. Essentially, a compact yet stylish pair of table toppers. This is where the company’s new entry-level Z200 comes into play. The tall, twin-driver desk-standing set is available in white or black with inverse accents. With this, you get solid build quality, a 1.8m corded power brick – which...

  • Logitech wireless All-In-One keyboard review: type and touch

    Logitech’s wireless all-in-one (AIO) tk820 keyboard is a nifty Windows 8 device that squashes a spacious touchpad onto the right-hand side of a rather heavy keyboard. It’s a little pricey at just over US$100 but in my opinion, Logitech proves that a costly keyboard is leagues ahead of a bargain basement one found on Gumtree. Great to type with Logitech’s keyboard is a best of both worlds, a neat keyboard that clicks and clacks, and a Windows 8 touchpad that’s smooth as silk. Having a combined keyboard and touchpad is what laptops are all about, so it makes sense to bring...

  • Logitech’s PowerShell finally turns your iPhone into a handheld gaming console

    It’s finally here. Logitech today introduced the Logitech PowerShell Controller + Battery — a controller case that turns your iPhone or iPod touch into a mobile gaming console and almost resembles a PS Vita. The analogue off-screen controls deliver a gaming experience that’s familiar to console players everywhere, with a D-pad, shoulder triggers and face buttons that allow you to control game play. The fact that the buttons are off-screen means that the entire screen is available to you as your sticky fingers won’t intrude your viewing experience — giving you a more immersive mobile experience. “We designed...

  • Logitech G602 Gaming Mouse review: made me ambidextrous

    There are a lot of cool things about Logitech’s G602 Gaming Mouse, like the 250 hour battery life, the lag-free wireless controls and the controls that instantly switch from a better gaming session to longer-lasting battery. What I liked the most though, was the fact that the mouse is so comfortable that it made me learn how to use my right hand to control it. I’m left-handed and until this mouse I’ve never been able to swap sides. Genetic factors and where our ancestors lived played a part in which hand we use, so using a right-hand only device is...

  • Logitech Harmony Touch review: for all your remote computing needs

    Logitech’s Harmony range of universal remote controls are decent attempts at uncluttering our living rooms by providing us with a single remote for all our devices, and the Logitech Harmony Touch is the latest model. There’s no keypad, and the colour screen of previous versions has been enlarged and given a touchscreen make over. Setting up the Logitech Harmony Touch is a simple process, and as long as you have the model numbers for your devices (which are often found on the devices themselves) then you shouldn’t have a problem. The software included on the CD is clear, informative and easy...

  • Logitech T650 Wireless Touchpad review: Windows 8 love

    It’s no secret that Windows 8 is an operating system that’s geared towards touchscreen devices. This means if you haven’t got a touch-enabled computer then you’ll miss out on quite a few features and shortcuts of Windows 8. Logitech’s T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpad is a solution to this, since it enables you to perform Windows 8 gestures no matter what your hardware is. Connecting it up to a PC is perfectly simple, and it comes with a Logitech Unifying USB dongle, which enables you to connect up to six compatible Logitech devices — such as the Logitech M600 Touch Mouse – to a single dongle....

  • Logitech Washable Keyboard review: squeaky clean

    Plug and Play has a new word added to it: washable. The Logitech k310 Washable Keyboard (WK) delivers the promise of a clean and washable waterproof keyboard that will keep OCD users safe from dust and dead bugs. Because for those of you who don’t know, the humble keyboard can actually be a festering sump of nasty germs, and has even been rated as dirtier than a toilet seat. Anyone who knows me will know that, even though I can be the most disorganised gadget freak on earth, I am quite anal about a few things. A clean PC and...
