A sluggish mouse is a nightmare for any gamer. Quickness of response and precision mean the difference between life and death in a digital battleground. The Logitech G5 Laser Gaming Mouse has been around for a year now, but it’s gaining a facelift with a special version based on the newest installment of the successful Battlefield series from Electronic Arts, Battlefield 2142 (BF 2142 for short). What was already the weapon of choice of any serious first person shooter gamer has become also a beautiful mouse with some cool graphics inspired by the game.
