Logitech provides a full line for gaming mouse, the well known G series. After having tested the lowest entry model (G1), and since we liked it, we decided to go for the next and higher priced model, the G5. Logitech has several interesting innovations with the G5 series, since includes a 2000dpi engine among with special features, like Adjustable weight cartridge. First lets see what G5 offers, according to Logitech.
- Logitech G5 Optical Mouse
The G5 series are characterized as a gaming mouse from Logitech. This is Logitech's top corded mouse and probably one of the most expensive you can buy.
The main features of Logitech G5 optical mouse can be found below:
2000 dpi laser engine
An ultra-high resolution engine churns images at an astounding 6.4 megapixels per second. A massive (30-pixel by 30-pixel) sensor array and precision laser technology provides best-in-class performance and tracking.
In-game sensitivity switching
The G5 provides instant access to three sensitivity levels— 400 dpi, 800 dpi, and 2000 dpi—before driver installation. Shift from pixel-precise targeting to fast-twitch maneuvers, without pausing the action.
Adjustable weight cartridge
Adjust the G5s weight and balance (up to 36 grams) for the control you need to dominate the competition.
Polytetrafluoroethylene gaming feet
Forget sticky workarounds—the G5's durable polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) feet give the ultra-smooth glide you want in a gaming mouse
A 500 reports/second, bi-directional connection delivers blazing speed and instant acceleration (Under Win 9x/ME Logitech's SetPoint software will limit the report rate to 125 reports/second.).
