Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Mouse Review

Introduction


The world of desktop mice is very competitive, and it doesn’t matter if you’re in the office, a stay-at-home gamer or involved in eSports, when it comes to buying a new mouse, you’re going to want the best mouse you can possibly get, assuming you’ve got the budget of course. Enter the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum, said to be the most innovative and best-performing mouse on the market, not just in terms of what Logitech has created before it, but even compared to their many rivals high-end products too. This is a bold claim and it’s something we’re eager to test today, so let’s take a look at what the G900 has to offer.

Professional Grade Wireless

“In high-pressure moments, latency can be the difference between winning it all or losing. With millions on the line, or just some e-cred with your buddies, PC gamers can depend on the G900 Chaos Spectrum to get the GG. With a 1 millisecond report rate, and our highly optimized 2.4GHz wireless connection, the G900 Chaos Spectrum outperforms the competition’s solutions, even the wired ones!” – Logitech

Advanced Optical Gaming Sensor

“The G900 Chaos Spectrum utilizes the PMW3366 optical gaming sensor, which is widely regarded as the best optical sensor on the market. The PMW3366 sensor precisely translates hand movement onto the screen, even at high-sensitivity. It delivers exceptionally accurate and consistent responsiveness at any speed across the entire DPI range (200-12,000DPI) with zero acceleration and zero smoothing thanks to Delta Zero technology.” – Logitech

Wireless has often been a sticking point for competitive gaming, as it has a history of lower latency, problems with interference and more, but Logitech has thrown every bit of research you can think of at their new design and the end result is a wireless mouse (although it can be used wired mode also) that has the lowest latency on the market, even compared to wired mice, the most consistent signal even in the most demanding scenarios, an ultra-light design and none of this has come at the compromise of features, as the G900 is one of the best equipped and most feature packed mice you’ll find.

Fully programmable buttons, Logitech’s legendary adjustable scroll-wheel, one of the best sensors on the market, a fast processor and premium grade switches. Of course, the most important thing here in my eyes is that it weighs just 107 grams, which is virtually nothing for a mouse and even more so for a wireless mouse! There’s nothing more we could ask for in a mouse, so let’s jump right in and take a closer look at what it has to offer.

  • 6-11 programmable buttons (depending on side button configuration)
  • Lightweight hyperfast tilt scroll wheel
  • Customizable RGB Lighting
  • Metal pivot main key design

The packaging is quite compact with a nice image of the mouse on the front, as well as the usual branding.

Around the back, a quick rundown of the major features such as the 1ms wired or wireless report rate, 107g weight, sensor and button configuration.

The slip cover comes off the box, revealing a durable presentation box.

It opens out to reveal the mouse prominently displayed and surrounded by lots of custom cut protective packaging.

Under the mouse, all the required accessories.

There’s a lightweight braided cable for using the mouse in wired mode or to simply charge the mouse. There’s also a wireless dongle and additional side buttons.

The ambidextrous mouse allows you to remove the side buttons and swap it between true left/right-handed modes, or even configure it to have dual side buttons to suit your taste. The dongle is a simple USB device but also comes with a block that can be used as an extender, which we’ll see in action shortly.

FlatOut 4: Total Insanity Will Be Ready for Some Road Mayhem in 2016

I might not know how many FlatOut fans are out there, but I know I am one. One might argue that the game is slightly similar to Carmageddon, but the derby style is kind of giving it its own personal touch. But to be honest, if you know FlatOut, you know the thing you like most about the title is when you see the driver skyrocketing out through the windshield, hoping to get as much points as he can!

The latest FlatOut title seems to be in development by Tiny Rebel Games, Strategy First, and Kylotonn Games. One interesting thing about this title is that the developers are now working closely with fans to help shape the game and add more interesting things fans want to see in the game. If you haven’t seen how FlatOut 4 looks like, here are some screenshots.

The game is still in its early stages, but if you’ve played FlatOut before, you know a few screenshots won’t stop you from wanting to throw the driver out through the windshield every time. FlatOut 4: Total Insanity will be out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC next year, but until then, you can get involved in shaping the game by heading over to the title’s website here.

GTA V AI Goes Mental – Causes Truly Epic Car Crash

Video game AI has made some incredible advancements in recent years; gaming just wouldn’t be the same without it! However, every now and then it goes wrong on a scale of epic proportions, which is no bad thing, because the results are more often than not, hilarious.

GTA V is a fantastic open-world game, with seemingly thousands of AI controlled NPCs that are just waiting to go haywire and I’m forever grateful that the gamer who saw this recorded the gameplay and uploaded it to the internet.

One simple car crash is nothing in GTA V, it happens all the time. This time, however, they just kept on coming, joining the heap and causing untold chaos the likes I’ve never seen. The end result is like something from Benny Hill crossed with Blues Brothers, perhaps even a little bit of Apocalypse Now for good measure.

The video is a little long at 5 minutes, but it’s certainly worth the watch.

It seems the inhabitants of this digital world don’t give a damn about those around them, from the Paramedic arriving already on fire, to the others kicking a burning man on the ground; it just keeps getting more and more out of hand and by the two-minute mark, it’s a total war zone!

Did someone say Benny Hill?

Fingerprint of Politician Cloned Just From Public Photos

A member of the Chaos Computer Club has reportedly ‘cloned’ the fingerprint of a politician from Germany solely using publicly available images taken by press at a conference.

Jan Krissler created a usable copy of German defence minister Ursula von der Leyen’s fingerprints using only images and computer software. The software presumably magnified the images taken to a degree that individual details in Ms von der Leyen’s prints could be identified and easily replicated.

Krissler says that “politicians will presumably wear gloves when talking in public” following the publication of his research. Maybe they should too, because details like this could give someone access to anything from her phone to a highly secure building.

Fingerpint recognition has slowly been shown to be not as secure as originally accepted, with hackers working hard to find ways to circumvent it. There are other methods, like finger vein recognition, that are being developed to get around the issues traditional biometrics pose.
