I am normally grumpy about many products/services and their failure to deliver on the hype. So I thought I would praise a company I have been very happy with. I have owned many Logitech devices and they have lasted me for a very long time and generally speaking I am very happy with them.
I think it was on TWIT that Louis Maresca showed his Logitech joystick. A model that I also have. It started me thinking about all the Logitech items I own.
I realized that everything I ever remember buying that is Logitech is still working. The first item I remember were my computer speakers the Logitech Z-5500 Speakers 5.1 Surround Sound 505W RMS

I purchased them in 2005 and they are still great. I used them as my computer speakers for many years. They then moved to being used as the main rooms TV speaker system where they are still going strong today.
My keyboard and mouse are the Logitech Cordless Desktop LX700 and also purchased around 2005. Again years of continuous use everyday and night for work and gaming. I live at my computer. Dropped more times that I remember, more drinks than I remember spilled over the keyboard. The worst being hot chocolate very sticky… and still going strong! My mouse left click was getting a bit funny so after looking inside I had worn down the plastic that presses the micro switch so the plastic was not making a good contact. I built is up with some superglue and it feels like new!

My Wingman Attack joystick was released in 2003 so it may actually be the oldest Logitech item. I have not used this much but every time I get in to a game that requires some flying I get it out and it works every time. Battlefield 1, which I still play is it’s most recent use.
My Cordless RumblePad 2 is old too. No idea when I purchased but great. Same story
I also have the G933 wireless headphones, which I really like apart from the creaking plastic… Purchased in 2017. These I have used almost daily for 3 years for around 4 hours a day. During the evening when the wife is home I use these so I do not disturb her. Used while gaming/podcasts/music/Youtube/Mowing the lawn/dishwasher etc. Dropped more times than I remember again.
The battery was getting weak so I went to the internet to see if they were even supported anymore and if so what crazy cost or ebay rubbish 3rd party battery I could find. Again Logitech came through with the battery available on their site for £10! Also lots of other spares/parts.
So if you had not guessed I am pleased with my Logitech purchases and they have out lasted other brands I have used.
Next on my list is a Harmony remote and a webcam!
No affiliation with Logitech just a happy customer
