A wireless mouse has always been avoided by the majority of gamming community since the release of the technology under valid ground of being technically not full proof. With the release of Logitech’s premium flagship ambidextrous mouse G900, Chaos Spectrum, most of those worries can easily be rested. Being a gorgeous piece of engineering this peripheral is packed with everything needed by competitive gamers: perfect wireless compatibility, an ambidextrous design, top-notch in-game performance, and a higher resolution than its predecessor.
Unlike the previous releases, the G900 sports a unique design which also includes the comfort factor essential for competitive gamers. It is small, light weighted, symmetric in design while being surprisingly thin and subtle for comfortable resting of thumb and outermost fingers. The only minute pitch fall in the design will be the dual fins at the bottom of the left and right buttons, which seems to be intended for a better visual look but fails to deliver any purpose in the gameplay or the grasp itself.
One of the biggest design advantage of G900 is that you have the option to swap out either of the thumb buttons, you can either have thumb button on both side or simply eschew thumb buttons entirely. This solves a major annoyance facing other ambidextrous gaming mice.
Apart from the in general left, right and scroll buttons (scroll button can apparently click three ways), the mouse has a button in the center dedicated for changing DPI which by the way can also be reprogrammed. There is a small interesting addition: you can also control the friction on the scroll rotation. Apart from all these for the convenience of active competitive games there is a button at the bottom for storing the profiles and swapping between them.
Logitech has specially emphasized on delivering excellent wireless connectivity, even in areas of intense Wi-Fi and Bluetooth traffic. The mouse has three options for connectivity: a 6 feet wire is provided for direct pc connection; you can attach a dongle provided with the box pack with the cord and position it to a place from where your mouse will receive good reception; you can also directly connect the dongle to the computer.
Logitech has shown confidence in the mouse’s battery life. It takes around 2 hours to get fully charged while delivering a maximum battery life of around 24 hours while having an estimate of 800 charge counts before the battery deteriorates. The only option of charging the mouse is being wired, which some might consider as minute downfall. Although one specific thing that pushes the G900 far ahead in the league of premium mice is the Logitech Software itself. Instead of using algorithm the software uses the voltage count of the battery to determine the remaining battery, thus resulting in a much accurate estimation.
Experience with the mouse can easily be translated as extremely soothing, especially while clicking. All the buttons can easily be programed according to your choice. Although contrary to its predecessor, Proteus Spectrum, G900 does not have a dedicated sniper button, but you can still program one of the buttons for the purpose.
To sum up the immensely versatile and customizable features easily overshadows the microscopic flaws. With a price tag of $150 set by the company G900 Chaos Spectrum can easily be considered as a seriously upgrade for a competitive gamer. Although most gamers won’t feel the need of spending their entire savings on the mouse, particularly when an all-purpose mouse, like Proteus Spectrum, can easily be bought in a much lower price. But those who can get their hands on this premium piece will have an incomparable experience. As far as availability is concerned for Indian buyer, there is still no announcement on the tentative release date for the mouse in the Indian market, it can still be bought and shipped from international ecommerce portals.
