Ever the purveyor of peripherals, Logitech is once again expanding its G series of mice with a new high-end wireless mouse for gamers. The Logitech G604 Lightspeed features the company’s latest high-precision sensor as well as 15 fully programmable controls that makes the mouse particularly useful for enthusiasts who play games that benefit from macros.
The Logitech G604 Lightspeed is based on the company’s Hero sensor, which a tracking resolution up to 16,000 DPI. That sensor is being paired with a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M-powered SoC, and on the communications side of matters the wireless mouse supports both Bluetooth and Logitech's proprietary Lightspeed wireless technology. The latter is designed to offer more performance and lower latency than standard Bluetooth, with Logitech offering much greater polling rates – up to 1000 Hz – when using Lightspeed.
In fact this same platform is used for other mice from Logitech, and as a result, the G604 supports the usual Logitech G-series features, such as automatic surface tuning. And that extends to battery life as well; Logitech is promissing a very long battery life for the mouse, rating it to run for up to 240 hours on a single AA battery.
From ergonomics point of view, the G604 Lightspeed is a successor of Logitech’s G602 launched several years ago. The new mouse features a similar shape, however Logitech says that they have refined the design to make it more comfortable and provider a better grip. Logitech’s G604 Lightspeed has 15 controls (including six thumb buttons for high demand actions) each of which can be reprogrammed.
Logitech will start sales of the G604 Lightspeed this fall at a price of $99.99.

Nukem950 - Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - linkIs the mouse wheel button more reliable than the G602? Mine started having issues after 1 year.
Tams80 - Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - linkSo, how about a G13 successor?
The True Morbus - Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - linkLogitech makes amazing mice and I love using them. But they engineer them to break after two or three years, spending a lot of money on a Logitech mouse is a scam.
I'll get my G500-class WIRED mouse on sale, thank you very much. Mine has two years now, I expect it to start double-clicking in within a year or two.
imaheadcase - Thursday, September 19, 2019 - linkSo what you are saying is that you like the G500 WIRED mouse that also breaks after two or three years..just like the other mouse. lol
I don't think anyone expects a mouse to last really that long anyways.
sandtitz - Thursday, September 19, 2019 - linkMy 15 yo Logitech MX1000 still works well, even the battery is fine for several days.
Karmena - Thursday, September 19, 2019 - linkAnother happy user here. Have a lot of mice from Logitech, only reason to change was that just got tired of the old one.
Lord of the Bored - Thursday, September 19, 2019 - linkI do. If a mouse craps out in two years, it is complete garbage and greatly diminishes my opinion of the company selling such unreliable crap.
Korguz - Saturday, September 21, 2019 - link"If a mouse craps out in two years" then you probably have been treating it like crap, and it broke cause of that, i have mice from 15 maybe 20 years ago that still work just fine. a friend of mine has a 5 buck bargain bin car shaped novelty mouse, that also still works just fine, dont even remember when she bought it, its been that long
surt - Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - linkThey use extremely noisy switches, give me a silent version please
