Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Review

Introduction

Logitech products are so ubiquitous that we think there can’t be many of you reading this who haven’t, at some point or other, owned one of their peripherals. Whether they come bundled with systems, or they provide name recognition at an affordable price, there is a reason that Logitech dominate the homes of most average users.

When it comes to high-end hardware, particularly mice designed for gaming, the big names tend to slip away as manufacturers built entirely around niche, hardcore, high-end hardware start to take over. Razer, Steelseries, Roccat, the list of major companies producing laser-focussed gaming mice is lengthy and full of excellent products.

Today’s review is of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum. A premium gaming rodent which is aimed squarely at the most demanding of gamers. With a Pixart 3366 sensor, wireless and wired capabilities and full lighting matched up to an ambidextrous design with a lot of clever touches, could this be the mouse to burst the scene wide open?

Technical Specifications

A measure of the seriousness of the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is in their eschewing of the more common Avago sensor and going to the Pixart 3366. A sensor which supports up to 12000 DPI but without using angle snapping, smoothing or any other hardware and software tricks to give the user absolute control. Indeed the Pixart has only recently appeared in the Corsair M65 Pro, so they’re gaining market traction in the high-end solutions. Additionally there are replacement buttons, which we’ll look at in a moment, and it can be used either wirelessly or plugged in. The battery promises 24 hours usage with lighting on, and 32 hours if you don’t mind turning off the LEDs.
