Up Close

Sometimes first impressions can surprise you, and the Chaos Spectrum fits firmly into that category. The box feels lovely with stick cardboard, eye-grabbing artwork and once you lift the lid the G900 is almost placed on a pedestal, such is the attention to detail and sculpting of the cardboard. So often mice come with a vacuum formed plastic cover that it's a treat to find one in such a high quality setting.

Beneath the mouse platform are the cable and a box containing the wireless receiver, charging cable and extra buttons/blanking plates. What's that? Buttons and blanking plates? Yes, the G900 Chaos Spectrum makes full use of its ambidextrous nature to cover all possible bases. We'll look at that on the next page.

Once upon a time we might have compared the aesthetics of the G900 Chaos Spectrum to a F117A Stealth Fighter, or some similarly black and angular vehicle. Nowadays it's a fairly common sight to see deeply sculpted elements matched to sharp angles, but the Logitech is still capable of grabbing your attention. It just looks spectacular. Nothing is misplaced, nor too small or too big. From the front to back we have the scroll-wheel, the scroll-wheel unlock button which transforms it from the click style we're all used to, into a completely free spinning offering, and the DPI buttons.

The underside contains the power switch to save the vital battery charge as well as a profile switching button. Putting it there is a very strange choice, particularly when the scroll-wheel unlock button is something that will surely receive far fewer clicks and can't be customised in the software.

By default the G900 is set up for right-handed users, and if you didn't know it had a party trick up its sleeves then you'd never guess just by looking at it. A testament to the excellent design and build quality. We're divided about the silver flashes at the front. We'd probably prefer an all-black look. But it's eye-catching at the very least.

Let's take a closer look at that party piece.

Cant wait for that new £200 mouse, that i will put on that new £100 mouse pad. Looks like every brand is trying to see how far they can go until people will say that price is unacceptable.Quote

agreed. logitech get looked over quite alot these days but if you spend the same money on one as you would say a razer or corsair you always get at least the same quality of not better. I love my G500 and whatever these 2.1 speakers are that i have had for the last decade.
Though this seems a bit overpriced imo, as nice as it is.Quote
