September is here and we’re celebrating the start of spring with a new monthly GG bonus from our friends at Logitech G!

This September, if you get yourself a Good Gaming PC you can register to redeem a G240 Gaming Mouse Pad to go with your new Gaming Rig.

The G240 Gaming Mouse Pad provides edge-to-edge performance on a clean surface with just the right amount of friction for low-DPI manoeuvres. Crafted for maximum control of your mouse movements, 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 that’s not all, our Massive Gaming Prize Pack will also be going out to one lucky gamer!

Our grand prize for September is a totally wireless setup! Made up of three highly sought after pieces of Logitech G Gaming Gear, including the latest G903 Hero Gaming Mouse!

That’s right folks! Our lucky winner will receive the flagship Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse, freshly upgraded with the epic HERO 16K gaming sensor for incredibly precise gameplay and 10X the battery efficiency of previous generation sensors.

Every component of G903 has been optimised to reduce weight while maintaining strength, from thin wall molding to a spoked hyperscroll wheel design. The result is a fully-loaded wireless mouse that weighs in at only 110g. Maximize comfort over extended periods of use and feel quicker response to motion.

A great mouse for sure, but that’s not all, our lucky winner is going to take away more awesome Logitech G gears!

The Logitech G613 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard is tournament grade, designed for gamers who demand both the high performance capabilities of mechanical switches and the freedom of wireless gaming. G613 features LIGHTSPEED wireless technology for super fast 1 ms report rate and Bluetooth for multi-host connectivity, advanced Romer-G mechanical performance, 6-programmable G-keys, and amazing battery life….more than 1 YEAR while using only 2 AA batteries!… crazy!

The six dedicated G-keys can be programmed with custom macros and in-app commands. Execute complex actions, simply and quickly, with a keystroke. G-keys can be assigned per game or app profile for customization and convenience. Use Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) to easily setup and manage profiles, commands and more.

Equipped with Romer-G mechanical switches the G613 delivers quiet, precise mechanical performance with incredible feel and durability with 70M click-life. The choice of top esports professionals, Romer-G switches have a short-throw actuation at 1.5 mm which means it is 25% faster than the competition’s standard mechanical switches. Romer-G is a perfect blend of speed, precision and quiet performance.

An epic keyboard for sure, but it doesn’t stop there – our lucky winner will also receive some excellent wireless audio 🙂

The Logitech G533 Wireless DTS 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset is a treat for the ears thanks to Logitech using the same Pro-G audio drivers found in the top tier 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 🙂 Always good for 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.

The 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.

We’ve tested the range out and it’s really good, unobstructed it’s 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!

Check out the all the latest Gaming PC and awesome Logitech G prizes today, and be sure to keep your eyes on the GGPC Blog as we’ll announce the lucky MEGA PRIZE PACK winner at the end of the month!

Good Gaming Keyboard – Logitech G613 Wireless Mechanical Gaming Keyboard!

As if the recent PowerPlay Lightspeed gaming gear they just released wasn’t enough, those top chaps at Logitech G have an awesome new gaming keyboard joining the mix – the Logitech G613 Wireless Mechanical Keyboard!

The G613 is a next generation wireless keyboard perfect for living room gamers who are looking for the satisfying click of mechanical switches and the freedom of wireless 🙂 Logitech have used their new LIGHTSPEED wireless technology as well and this delivers a mind-blowing 1 ms report rate for super-fast and responsive gaming, this is the same professional-grade wireless solution that’s built into the exceptional G703 and G903 wireless gaming mice.

They’ve made it savvy for the lounge by fitting a solid wrist rest onto the front, it’s also a little bit longer than the G413 with the additional G-Keys lined up on the left for gamers.

Being a living room savvy device Logitech have also taken care of a few additional features to make this keyboard even better – along the top you’ll find a host of quick media control buttons, these will allow you to quickly adjust volume, fast-forward, rewind and all that good stuff, what’s even cooler though is that Logitech have included Bluetooth connectivity as well as wireless, and with a quick-change button up beside the media controls you can hot swap between devices with ease!  Included with the keyboard is also a nice smartphone stand as well, similar to the one included with the G910 Orion Spectrum but this time in black.

Romer-G mechanical switches deliver precise mechanical performance with that signature ultra fast actuation we love, for those newbies coming to this new switch from something like a cherry blue, what makes the Romer-G switches so good is that your key-presses register at just 1.5 mm depth, around 25% faster than normal mechanical switches providing great response times in game – once you’re used to it 😛 Unlike many of the Logitech G mechanical keyboards we’ve been seeing recently, the G613 has got six dedicated macro G-keys so installing the Logitech Gaming Software is still a must even without the RGB options – it is a little odd to have keyboard without LED lighting now, but on the other hand we do understand, sacrifices must be made for battery life – there is a button that will light up though, the battery life warning indicator turns on when you’re down to 10% apparently 🙂

Logitech boasts that we’ll get 18 months of battery life on the two AA-batteries included with the kit – we’ll update our GGPC PC Gaming Blog with the latest as we test this new gaming keyboard out!

GAME ON!
