GGPC X Logitech G Mega MAY Winner Announced!

 

Congratulations to our MAY WINNER Julie W! – June GGPC promotions have begun here

Throughout May, if you grabbed yourself a Good Gaming PC you could register to redeem a G240 Gaming Mouse Pad to go with your new Gaming Rig.

Crafted for maximum control of your mouse movements, the G240 provides edge-to-edge performance on a clean surface with just the right amount of friction for low-DPI manoeuvres. Your gaming will benefit from the consistent surface texture, also giving your mouse sensors better imagery for translating mouse movement into cursor movement!

A great mousepad for any mouse, but this will also put you into the draw for our MASSIVE Logitech Gaming Prize Pack which will be going out to one lucky gamer!

Our grand prize for May consisted of three distinctly impressive pieces of Logitech G Gaming Gear, the first being just released Logitech G512 Linear Gaming Keyboard!

G512 is a high-performance gaming keyboard, delivering 1 ms report rate and featuring advanced Romer-G Linear mechanical switches. Full-spectrum RGB combine with LIGHTSYNC technology that takes the LED experience with your games to a whole new level! The aluminium alloy gives the G512 a bladelike chassis with a beautiful brushed metal finish, on the back you’ll also find a handy USB port for convenience – plug in a device to charge or plug in a mouse, without missing a beat.

And speaking of a gaming mouse – we’ve got a great one to go with this!

Included in this months GGG Prize Pack is the outstanding Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Gaming Mouse which is one of the top-rated Gaming Mice in the WORLD!

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse with full RGB LED Lighting and tunable weight options included. Get maximum tracking accuracy from the responsive PMW3366 optical sensor which works with exclusive Logitech G Delta Zero optical sensor technology to minimize mouse acceleration and increase reliable targeting. Adjustable RGB lighting lets you select from up to 16.8 million colours and as our lucky winner is going to have a complete setup, Logitech Gaming Software will allow them to choose lighting to match their style, and then set this theme over the whole kit – synchronizing lighting patterns and effects to bring the gaming setup to life with breathing or light cycling light patterns!

Ohhh that’s a pretty amazing setup we’ve got here, but it’s not over yet!

Completing the setup is another new release from Logitech G, the sleek, black, G533 Wireless DTS 7.1 Gaming Headset!

Featuring Pro-G audio drivers using hybrid mesh materials, the G533 delivers audio performance normally found in high-end audiophile headphones. DTS Headphone:X technology accurately replicates 7.1 speaker placement and audio positioning, allowing this headset to recreate the in-game environmental effects and positional audio game designers intended you to hear. You can even tune the volume levels for each of the 7 audio channels to amplify game sounds coming from rear channels to hear what’s behind you! With advanced lossless digital audio transmission, the G533 delivers wireless convenience and incredible high fidelity sound with up to 15 meters range, designed to maintain a strong connection even in noisy EMI environments such as when there are multiple competing wireless signals nearby.

What a bunch of prizes!

Good Gaming Headset – Logitech G533 Available NOW!

G533

UPDATE: The G533 Gaming Headset has landed in NZ!

There are a few really nice gaming gaming headsets available in NZ today and a new piece of audio goodness has just released from those fine folks at Logitech G!

The G533 is a sleek new gaming headset that’s using the same Pro-G audio drivers found in the exceptional 933 Artemis Spectrum, it’s also packing DTS X 7.1 surround sound which accurately replicates 7.1 speaker position so we can enjoy all the ambient sounds and audio ques that make playing games with a nice headset oh so enthralling 🙂 It’s also handy for a multiplayer gamer as being able to hear which direction gunfire is coming from can be a pretty neat tool for getting into the action (or getting out the way :P) You can configure all this and more with the Logitech Gaming Software.

GGPC Logitech G533 Gaming Headset Buttons up closeThe headset packs in all the goodness we’ve come to expect from Logitech G with earpieces that can also be removed and washed if needed, these cups also pivot making for comfortable in those moment when you’ve got the headset around your neck as you run off to grab a quick Redbull between matches 🙂 You’ll still be able to hear when the next match is coming up because this one is wireless thanks to an included 2.4GHz USB dongle (which apparently gives even more range than the G933!) and will last a solid 15 hours of game time at around 50% volume, which is managed via that slick roller we liked so much in our G910 Gaming Keyboard review \o/

UPDATE: We’re well into testing this one out for ourselves now and it’s really good, a few things have really stood out to us. Firstly the unobstructed range appears to be well over 15 metres, with the USB dongle in our GGPC editor rig we still had a perfect connection all the way down in the other end of the workshop and that’s a good 30 metres away! When testing in a two story house we were able to head downstairs and into the kitchen to grab a drink and still maintain voice comms while waiting in que, great stuff Logitech 🙂 Battery wise the headset has just crossed the 16 hour mark and do another quick test soon to see how long this thing last at full volume (which we don’t advise, these ear cannons are loud!).
