Logitech G9X laser mouse: made for Call of Duty

RH Numbers

Logitech always does me proud and even though I'm not a huge CoD fan my forays into the Modern Warfare 3 world are made easier by such an outstanding piece of kit. Having used the original red G9x, I can't escape the CoD branding with a large MW3 logo stamped on the interchangeable covers, to the night vision green LEDs.

Some gamers moan that the G9x mouse is too short if you have large hands but I think that the intuitive placement of the buttons overcomes this. Superior software, adjustable weight system and accuracy makes sure that hardcore Call of Duty fans can use this to laud it over their console buddies – just don't mention the price.

Logitech G300 gaming mouse G300

RH Numbers

Diametrically opposed to the G9x, the Logitech's G300 could be considered too petite and insubstantial for comfortable pro gaming. But Logitech isn't exactly new to peripherals and knows its strength lies in delivering solid consumer products.

Three built-in profiles reflect the general appeal of this mouse: there's one for MMOs, one for FPS and another for everyday tasks such copy and paste. The G300's nine programmable buttons and 2,500dpi laser aren't going to put it at the top of my list, but they're certainly respectable for only £35.
