Razer and Logitech have been dominating the PC gaming peripheral space for some time now. But with CES 2019 now in full swing, Lenovo is hoping to change that. The company has announced that it will be doubling down on its efforts to appease gamers with its one lineup of new devices to pair with your PC. Head below for a full look at Lenovo’s upcoming gaming monitors, keyboard, mice and more.
New Lenovo Monitors
At the forefront of the new releases, Lenovo has showcased a triad of new monitors. None of them embody the company’s desire to entice gamers quite like the Legion Y44FW. Clocking in at a massive 43.4 inches, it’s the latest in super UltraWide monitors. Aside from the superfluity of screen real estate, it also features a 144Hz refresh rate, 3,840 x 1,200 pixel panel and more.
Next up is the Thinkvision P44W, which is nearly identical to the Legion Y44FW aside from a few added novelties. You’ll find the same 43.4-inch screen and panel, as well as the litany of inputs like two HDMI, a single DisplayPort, two USB-C and four USB ports. While the Legion Y44FW is priced at $1,200, the Thinkvision bumps up to a $1,300 price tag. That extra $100 value comes in the form of a redesigned stand, a front mounted USB hub and a removable speaker.
The third monitor in Lenovo’s lineup takes a stab at an eSports-centered design. While the Legion Y27gq isa more reasonable 27-inches, it boasts a 240Hz refresh rate, Nvidia G-Sync, and a 1,440p panel. It also sports HDMI, DisplayPort and USB 3.0 ports. Lenovo’s Legion Y27gq also enters with a more modest $1,000 price tag and will be shipping in April.
New Lenovo Peripherals
On the peripheral side of things, Lenovo has also bolstered its lineup with several new releases. Its new Legion K500 RGB Mechanical Keyboard will surely be a hit for many. At $100, you’ll get red mechanical switches, 3 zone per-key customizable RGB lighting and a 6-foot long USB cable.
It can pair with the Lenovo Legion M500 RGB Gaming Mouse, which enters with a $60 price tag. Notable features include a 16,000 DPI resolution sensor, Omrom-branded mechanical switches and seven programmable buttons.
Lastly, Lenovo has two new gaming headsets, the H300 and H500 Pro. For the lower-end H300, you’ll pay $60 for 50nm drivers and 3.5mm headphone jack connectivity. Upgrading to the H500 Pro brings several notable improvements including 7.1 surround sound, USB support and more, although to get all of those features, you’ll need to shell out $100.
Just about all of Lenovo’s new PC releases will be available come April. The company is a little late to the gaming space, though it’s offerings seem competitive against what is already available on the market.
