Logitech today introduced the newest addition to its line of G-series peripherals for PC gaming – the G9 Lase Mouse. The Logitech® G9 Laser Mouse takes customization to the next level, allowing gamers to modify nearly every part of the G9 mouse for the best personal fit, feel and performance. Logitech also unveiled an upgrade to its G15 Gaming Keyboard – now with native support from the most popular games for its exclusive GamePanel™ LCD screen, a backlighted 160 by 43 pixel screen that gives gamers critical information during game play.

The new G9 is a corded mouse offers gamers interchangeable grips, on-the-fly DPI switching ranging from 200 DPI to 3200 DPI, full-speed USB laser tracking, an onboard-memory profiling system, weight tuning, a custom-color LED and Logitech's exclusive hyper-fast MicroGear™ Precision Scroll Wheel.

The interchangeable grips come in two sizes – Wide-Load and Precision. The Wide-Load is designed to provide a fuller shape with a soft satin feel while the Precision grip comes with DryGrip technology giving the gamer a slimmer profile, allowing fingertip control and a surer handle for any hand. Logitech says they expect to offer additional grips in the future.

Further enhancing the customization features is a unique weight tuning system where the user can insert up to four additional weights in the mouse's weight tray to add up 28 grams. With eight weights to choose from, there are hundreds of different weight settings available to provide the perfect feel for any user.

The G9 mouse comes with Logitech's SetPoint software that allows the user to create and store up to five profiles – including specified keyboard macros, dpi settings and LED color settings – directly on the mouse using onboard memory. The mouse's LED color settings can also be changed and linked to each profile and will show the DPI and profile setting. The DPI setting can be switched on the fly from 200 DPI all the way up to 3200 DPI. The G9 mouse also features the MicroGear Precision Scroll Wheel introduced last year in the MX Revelution cordless laser mouse.

The upgraded G15 Gaming Keyboard offers built-in support for popular games via its integrated LCD panel. Native support for World of Warcraft, Battlefield 2142 and Quake Wars is included. In addition, the G15 keyboard includes a public software development kit (SDK), which allows gamers to program any game to leverage GamePanel for better performance. The G15 keyboard also offers six on-the-fly programmable macro keys with three modes, for a total of 18 programmable keys per game or application. Logitech rounds out the G15 with backlighted keys for those late night gaming sessions.

The Logitech G9 Laser Mouse (MSRP $99.99 U.S.) and the upgraded Logitech G15 Gaming Keyboard (MSRP $99.99 U.S.) are expected to be available in September.

The pic links take me to an OCC error page, saying I don't have access to the linked page. Anyone else getting that?

The mouse looks pretty cool. The on-board profile stuff seems pretty handy because software switching is always subject to a degree of compatibility with games. Having it on-board is great for complete control. The interchangeable grips seems like an interesting idea, too. Really though, I'll have to wait to try them myself before I can decide if it's a good thing. I like the color too. Just plain black. Pretty hard to offend with that :) Ultimately though, I just can't see spending $100 on a mouse. It's cool, but not that cool.

I've never been much of a Razer fan, but does it seem to anyone else like they've "borrowed" at least a few key features from the Razer mice for this G9? The front of the mouse, most notably the concave "U-shaped" main buttons, looks very Razer-ish. And I believe that the on-board memory and software-less resolution switching has been a Razer initiative for a while now.

All the pic links test OK for me. Maybe you need to get one of the moderators to help you out :lol:

No error message here. It is an ugly mouse. I like the features, but I'd rather get the cordless, what is it...G7, for the same price? Maybe it will go down in price with this release. I want the Cordless Desktop 3200, but don't want to spend the money, especially with a 5 yr old in the house. I don't need my mouse walking off. I guess I'll stick with my MX-510, even though I have to use a USB extension cord to get it to reach my tower.
