    Their keyboards and mouses are nice but their headsets, especially the cheap ones break very easily and are made of cheap plastic. They get the job done and are considerably decent, especially $100 and up in price range, but I would much rather invest in more reliable brands like Razer or something.

    I use a Logitech Keyboard, mouse, headset, webcam and I recommend their brand to everyone I know. They have great support, they care and their product is always getting better, especially their gaming line.

    As to the accusation of cheap plastic for their budget headsets, yes for their budget like 15 dollar headsets they use run of the mill plastic which isn't as durable as, you know, metal or high quality synthetics but considering the while point of those headsets is to be cheap, that makes sense. The quality of sound and mics is good and if you don't throw around the headset, it doesn't break.

    Their new high end gaming is awesome. I've been using it for years now and it truly stands up to my usage. Obviously their non gaming peripherals aren't going to be as good for gamers as they're made for standard work use, but still are great products in their own right.

    The assertion that Razer should be invested in is laughable at best. Razer is over priced, not as effective, their support and delivery processes aren't as good, their software is a mess and ultimately, you're paying more for the brand than anything else.

    It's much like buying an AlienWare, it may be the "computer of the gamer" but it's got shit specs for the price and you pay more for the advertising budget than the computer itself.

    If I'm going to buy a peripheral I'm always going to look at Logitech. There are a few other companies for possible products, especially in the mechanical keyboard market. But that's another story.

    Beats recently got purchased by Apple (I believe, you can double check, I know they were recently purchased by a large company). And as such the newest Beats aren't awful quality, build and sound wise, HOWEVER, they are still far overpriced.

    But yes, you're correct, I think with brands like AlienWare, Beats by Dre, Razer and etc, you pay more for name/brand and advertising budget than you should be for the product itself.

    I own a pair of the G35's and i highly recommend them, they are a great buy for the price. The one thing i might warn you about G930's @hunternental is that the mic quality is severely hindered by the wireless functionality*, atleast thats what i have heard. When buying computer peripherals i always spring for the wired version, as the wireless versions can have slighty longer response times and i dislike that.

    *feel free to respond correcting me if you own a pair and feel as if the mic quality is up to standard.

    I own a G930 and a G35, the G930's mic quality and sound quality are fine. Many in mumble will remember when I changed, it was barely a difference.

    I will say this, the G930 has the disadvantage of using 2.4 GHz broadband frequency band (@Bottswana can yell at me if I said that wrong), and while I don't have any complaints with it specifically (2.4 GHz in the standard, so that's not something Logitech is specifically at fault for.), if you live in a highly population dense area or area which has a lot of wireless frequencies, I'd opt for a wired version.

    In my house, I was fine with the G930, however, when I had an apartment in the city, the G930 would sometimes lose connection. It's a great headset and gives you mobility and sets you free from wires, but keep in mind with that mobility, you lose some stability.

    Also, as a G35 user, I can vouch for them also.

    I use a Logitech wireless mouse, it saves a lot of battery, and to be honest, I only have to refill my batteries about once a year. I enjoy using Logitech.

    Fixed your post ;)

    Yeah, using the 2.4g band isn't necessarily a bad thing, just remember that most commercial and Residential WiFi is also in this frequency band so in areas with a lot of WiFi you're going to get cross chatter if there isn't much air space left. 2.4 is great for signal penetration though, meaning the signal will go far and transmits nicely through walls, which is an issue I have with my Steelseries wireless set.
