Logitech is a name synonymous with manufacturing everything from PC based sound systems through to gaming headsets, and attempting to intensify the aural/gaming pleasure of the user. In this day and age of competitive gaming, whether you're a league player or just a friendly LAN gamer with your friends on the weekend; the need for some sort of advantage over your opposition is imperative.
Logitech's latest incarnation of input device - the G7, has been touted as the tool to provide you with this advantage. Further, not only is the G7 reputed to perform well, but is stylish and unobtrusive to boot. With a new PC build underway, aimed squarely at being a high-end gaming rig, I decided to purchase the Logitech G7 to see how it would perform.
