When we reviewed Logitech's Harmony One universal remote last year, we gave it an enthusiastic Editors' Choice award and really lamented only the fact that there was no RF option for users who had components hidden in cabinets or in closets. Well, more than a year later, Logitech has given us what we asked for--and even a little more--in its Harmony 900.
On Thursday, Logitech announced two new PC gaming accessories, a successor to the G5 Laser Mouse and a behind-the-head gaming headset.
The G500 Gaming Mouse refreshes the current G5 Laser Mouse with improved sensitivity and a new design. The mouse will also come with up to 27 grams of weight that you can add on to tune the overall feel of the device. How's that for customization?
The mouse's onboard memory also allows you to switch from game to game without having to remap a button scheme. Better yet, this feature doesn't require any software installation (though … Read more
Logitech announced today the release of its Unifying Receiver, which lets multiple wireless peripherals connect to a computer via only a single USB dongle. Four products will be released that support the proprietary technology, including the Wireless Keyboard K350, Wireless Keyboard K340, Marathon Mouse M705, and Wireless Mouse M505.
Like several of Logitech's other wireless peripherals, the products use 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity via a tiny USB dongle that protrudes only 8 millimeters from the edge of the USB port. Whereas previously each wireless receiver needed its own USB transceiver, the Unifying technology lets up to six devices … Read more
For this week's installment of the weekly Crave giveaway, we've got a hot one: Logitech's Squeezebox Boom, which we consider the best all-in-one tabletop Wi-Fi radio we've seen to date. It earned an Editors' Choice award last year. (Read the full review of the Logitech Squeezebox Boom.)
Normally, Logitech's Squeezebox Boom costs about $300, but you have the chance to get one gratis.

At last month's Logitech preview in New York, we got our hands on some serious musical instrument accessories coming to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that are licensed by Activision to work with Guitar Hero games.
The Logitech Wireless Drum Controller has fully adjustable drum heads and cymbals. When we quickly demoed the kit we noticed the heads are also fitted with a unique padding--which we're told reduces noise when hit. The entire kit is collapsible, too, which is good when floor space is an issue. The company claims it'll get up to 50 hours of … Read more
Logitech has four new PC speakers for 2009, ranging in price from $69.99 to $129.99. None of the new speakers are USB-powered and all feature what the company calls "360-degree sound," which "helps project audio evenly in all directions."
The company's gone away from the modern, squarish design of its USB-powered Z5 omnidirectional speakers and gone with a more traditional PC speaker design. Two of the new models ship with subwoofers and two don't. Logitech says all its new PC speaker systems will ship this month (we'll be getting review samples … Read more
The Logitech Squeezebox Duet was given an enthusiastic Editors' Choice award when CNET reviewed it back in March of 2008. But the audio streamer is a two-part product that's heavily reliant on Wi-Fi (both the iPod-like remote and the base station communicate to each other--and your home network--wirelessly). And many users have experienced a problem wherein the Controller (the remote) fails to reconnect to the network or recognize the Squeezebox base station after "waking up" from a period of inactivity. The issue has been widely reported online, from CNET's user reviews to Logitech's own support forums. … Read more
Assault with a deadly burger, bar bathroom toiletries, perfect strokes, black balls and boba straws, and Asian gangstas are just a few of the topics brought up by today's guest, Mr. Brian Tong from CNET TV! He usually keeps it clean on his show, the Apple Byte, but The 404 is all about letting loose, and trust us--he does. This might be the most perverted, nasty, NSFW, and all around hilarious show EVAR- OMGBBQ!
