Product on Review: Logitech G305
Street Price: £51.99 / $59.99
Earlier in the year we reviewed a trio of Logitech wireless mice, these were the G603, G703 and G903. All these were highly impressive, so can Logitechís G305 impress us as much as their other offerings?
Well itís off to a good start thanks to Logitechís LIGHTSPEED tech, HERO sensor, ultra-low 1ms response time and highly impressive battery life. If youíve read our G603 review, youíll already be familiar with LIGHTSPEED and its capabilities, and it is great that we now get this tech in an even more affordable package. If you didnít catch our review here is a brief overview. LIGHTSPEED is a form of wireless connection that is capable of both a high-performance mode and efficiency mode, this is great as you can switch between the two depending on what task you are carrying out. Furthermore, with this tech, a 1ms response time has been achieved which is brilliant - especially when gaming. The 12,000DPI HERO sensor is also impressive and is capable of delivering accurate actions with velocities over 400 IPS; and even manages this feat without the need for any smoothing, acceleration or filtering.
One more stand-out feature is the up to 250 hours of battery life when using a AA battery, that is partially thanks to the technology mentioned above and the software that can alter the G305ís behaviour to make it even more efficient.
All this sounds mighty impressive, but there is still one question, and that is can it rival a similarly priced wired offering?Ö.. Let's find out.
