Leading computer accessories and peripherals maker, Logitech, has announced the new Logitech G line — six redesigned mice and keyboard favourites and two new headsets, to meet the high demands of gamers.
The new line was a result of studies on how the hand interacts with a device during gameplay. The results from the studies translated to advancements in areas of durability and comfort — using advanced surface materials like fingerprint-resistant coatings on heavy contact zones, hydrophobic coating on palm areas and double UV coating on keys

The Logitech G100s Optical Gaming Mouse and G500s Optical Gaming Mouse feature the new Delta Zero sensor technology that offers precision cursor control.
