The compact size of the Logitech G3 Laser Mouse allows gamers to use a fingertip grip, which many prefer to make quicker and bolder movements using their wrists. The mouse also includes the Logitech DryGrip surface, which helps gamers comfortably maintain a secure grip during marathon gaming sessions.
Without software installed, the button beneath the G3 mouse's scroll wheel allows people to increase or decrease the mouse resolution on the fly from 1600 dpi to 800 dpi. With software, the mouse's 2000 dpi maximum resolution can be adjusted to as low as 400 dpi, with a total of five settings available, allowing gamers to vary their resolution and balance their needs between maximum speed and optimum precision.
By using full-speed USB, the G3 mouse delivers 500 reports per second -- much faster than the 60 to 125 reports per second of traditional USB mice. This ability to transmit data more frequently is critical to ensure absolute precision with no lag. To reduce resistance and improve accuracy as it glides across a surface, the G3 mouse also features large polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) feet.
Logitech's G5 and G7 mice offer gamers additional features such as weight tuning and robust wireless technology, respectively.
The Logitech G3 Laser Mouse will be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in August. In the U.S., the G3 will have a suggested retail price of $59.99.
