Slap the term “gaming” to any accessory whether it be monitors, speakers, microphones, keyboards, and/or mice, and you will instantly see an increase in price over the “regular” version. However not all gaming peripherals need to cost an arm and a leg, as evidence by Logitech with the launch of the G305 wireless gaming mouse.

The G305 is Logitech’s latest offering as far as gaming mice is concerned, but it comes pretty affordably priced. At $60 the G305 makes it more accessible to the masses, but just because it is cheaper doesn’t mean that Logitech has skimped on features. One of the highlight features of the G305 is that it will use the HERO optical sensor that Logitech typically reserves for its higher-end offerings.


According to Logitech, “HERO is incredibly power efficient, and provides exceptional responsiveness and accuracy, 400 IPS precision and sensitivity up to 12,000 DPI, with no acceleration or smoothing.” The mouse will also feature wireless connectivity using Logitech’s LIGHTSPEED technology and promises 250 hours worth of gameplay.

However given that the G305 is cheaper than other gaming mice, there will be some concessions, such as it featuring less programmable buttons compared to other more expensive mice. It also lacks certain customizable options, such as adjusting the weight of the mouse, but if you’re not fussed about all of that, then the G305 could be worth checking out when it is released later this month.
