Logitech G9x Laser Gaming Mouse Review
One of the primary reasons that PC video games are so popular is because they offer precision control and accuracy beyond what the gaming console can deliver. Tools are an important part of the trade, and to be the best you've got to use the best equipment. Logitech is keenly aware of these fundamentals, which is why they've created an entire business around high-performance peripherals. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the Logitech G9x Laser Gaming Mouse (model 910-001152) in fast-paced FPS action games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
First Person Shooter (FPS) styled video games are extremely popular, and equally competitive for gamers. Quick muscle twitch reaction time is a must if you plan to survive the kill-or-be-killed battleground, but physical skill is meaningless if it's doesn't transfer into the PC. This is where the importance of high-quality gaming peripherals come into play. The Logitech G9x is a refined version of the original wildly popular Logitech G9 Laser Gaming Mouse. While most of the physical features are identical between the two, a few important updates have been delivered to the Logitech G9x revision.
From the first moment I fearlessly laid my hand upon the funny pointing device attached to the Apple Mac back in 1984, I felt that computers would always be approachable. I believe most enthusiasts started their love affair with computer this way, and eventually learned our way around the rest of the landscape. Times have changed, and now many of us require, nay demand, something more from our peripheral hardware than simple functions. The Logitech G9x 5700 DPI laser USB gaming mouse has arrived, and it's ready to point and click... boom, head-shot!

Personal computer pointing devices were first made popular by their ease of use. The name "mouse" was given to these pointing devices was originally coined at the Stanford Research Institute. It was derived from the resemblance of early models which had a cord attached to the rear part of the device, suggesting the idea of a tail to the common rodent. It's another example of one of the few computer hardware components which is recognizable by anyone and everyone without much description. You can't say the same for many other computer hardware components.
Today the purpose of the computer mouse remains unchanged, with the exception of those who play computer video games, power users, graphic artists, and designers. Logitech offers the revised G9x laser mouse to these demanding user segments, which allows them to enjoy 200-5700 DPI worth of response accuracy. For the growing number of computer enthusiasts, who I regards as anything but a casual user, the mouse is more important than any other facet of the entire system's hardware. This is precisely why products such as the Logitech G9x series of laser mouse products are in such high demand.
