11.10.2010 - Survey Finds Our Close Relationship with Our Laptops Isn’t Without Issues



View Logitech-Press related news. FREMONT, Calif. — Nov. 10, 2010 — The benefits of being ‘plugged in’ at all times is starting to burn out some laptop users, literally. According to a study by Wakefield Research for Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), laptop users make significant sacrifices in exchange for mobility. The complaints are widespread and range in nature from scorching heat to sub-par sound. “People love their laptops and they’re often willing to forgo comfort in the pursuit of mobility,” said Rory Dooley, Logitech senior vice president and general manager of the control devices business unit. “The irony is that they don’t need to. There are accessories that can vastly improve their overall laptop experience, no matter where people want to use their laptop – at their desk, on the couch, or even on the go. All Fired Up Laptop users reported that they consistently face issues with the heat generated from their computer. In fact, nearly half (47 percent) of laptop users surveyed have had to temporarily quit using their laptop because the heat became unbearable. Surprisingly, a majority (62 percent) agree that the bottom of their laptop gets so hot that they could fry an egg on it. Desperate solutions that people have tried including a pillow (27 percent), towel (19 percent) and magazine (15 percent)–don’t adequately address the problem. “Our lineup of lapdesks can help alleviate the issues people experience with laptop heat,” said Denis Pavillard, vice president of product marketing for laptop accessories. “Options such as our Logitech® Portable Lapdesk N315 are slim enough to take along in a laptop bag, and others such as our Logitech® Speaker Lapdesk N700 or the Logitech® Speaker Lapdesk N550, can shield users from heat and deliver rich, full stereo sound too.” Did You Hear That? Most people surveyed use their laptop primarily for entertainment, with just 4 percent using their laptop exclusively at work. The trend of buying music and videos online has rapidly emerged as a common practice and people often use their PCs to listen to their newly acquired digital files for the first time. However, listening to digital files on the built-in speaker on a laptop leaves room for improvement. The sound quality is oftentimes so poor that nearly 1 in 3 laptop users surveyed report having stopped a movie on their laptop because the speaker quality was sub-par. And in the survey conducted by Wakefield, more than half of all laptop users reported that music sounds better on a record player (52 percent) than on their laptop’s speakers. These numbers show that people are well aware that their laptop speakers are stuck in the past despite the fact that the technology packed inside has become exponentially more powerful. “The speakers built into most laptops are tiny and can’t always reproduce powerful audio,” said Robert Jacobson, director of product marketing for PC speakers at Logitech. “Whether you’re an MP3 junkie or a movie lover, Logitech offers laptop speakers that make it easy to connect, turn the sound up and lose yourself in the things you love. There’s no reason that you can’t have quality audio while you’re watching the newest Hollywood release on your laptop – there are solutions abound to upgrade inadequate audio performance anywhere you take your laptop.” To learn more about Logitech laptop accessories including speakers, lapdesks and cooling pads, visit  Logitech.com. Methodological Notes The Logitech Laptop Survey was conducted by Wakefield Research between August 26th and August 30th, 2010. For this research, 594 interviews were fielded among nationally representative Americans aged 18 and older who own or regularly use a laptop computer, using an email invitation and an online survey. Quotas were set to ensure reliable and accurate representation of the total U.S. population ages 18 and older. Results of any survey sample are subject to sampling variation. For this sample, the chances are 95 in 100 that the survey result does not vary by more than 4.0 percentage points (plus or minus) from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conducted with all persons in the universe represented by the sample.

11.02.2010 - Logitech Study Shows Multiple Remote Controls Hindering Entertainment Experiences Around the Globe



View Logitech-Press related news. Logitech — Nov. 2, 2010 —Logitech and independent research firm Wakefield Research announced today the results of the Global Remote Control Trends Study. The survey of seven countries from around the globe revealed that entertainment is being hindered by the increase in living room gadgets and a lack of simplicity of use. In nearly every country in the survey, almost half of remote users needed to press three or more buttons – usually on multiple remote controls – just to watch a DVD. Logitech is proud to help consumers ease the transition from cluttered mess to sleek simplicity with the Logitech Harmony line of remotes. Logitech’s Harmony remotes offer features from touch screens to activity-based control, making it easy to access your most used functions. After a brief set up, whatever people want to watch, play, or listen to, with Logitech Harmony consumers are just one touch away from their entertainment.

View Logitech-Press related news. FREMONT, Calif. — Nov. 1, 2010 — Today, Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) introduced the Logitech® Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 — the company’s first light-powered keyboard.

Plus, with its PVC-free construction and fully recyclable packaging, it’s designed to minimize its footprint.” Powered by Light — Even Indoors To give you hassle-free convenience, the Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard powers itself through its integrated solar panel — no power bricks or charging cables needed. The included solar power app (available for download beginning Nov. 15, 2010 at www.logitech.com/k750/solarapp) a lux meter to help you get the necessary light, makes it easy to get at-a-glance information about battery levels, and even alerts you when you need more power. Logitech’s first solar keyboard can be powered by indoor light and stays charged for at least three months in total darkness. Plus an integrated power-indicator light eliminates surprises. Only 1/3-Inch Thick But Logitech did much more than bring solar power to the keyboard. At only 1/3-inch thick, the sleek Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard looks good. With its rounded edges and thin profile, this stylish, streamlined keyboard is a joy to hold and behold. Feel-Good Typing The low-profile keyboard features Logitech Incurve keys™. Using a concave design, Incurve keys support the shape of your fingertips, while helping guide your fingers to the right keys. In addition, the soft, rounded edges make it easy for your fingers to glide from key to key. Powerful, Reliable Wireless Connection with Logitech Unifying Technology The Logitech Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 offers Logitech Advanced 2.4 GHz wireless connectivity, keeping you connected with virtually no delays or dropouts, so you get all the benefits of a cord, with the convenience of wireless.

In addition, we have raised our sales outlook for the full fiscal year to include our initial estimate of sales for our line of products for Google TV.
