Two Logitech Mice Honored with red dot Design Awards


Winners Include Logitech MX610 Laser Cordless Mouse, Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse

HANNOVER, Germany — March 10, 2006 — Logitech (SWX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI), the world´s leading manufacturer of computer mice, today at CeBIT announced that the Logitech® MX™610 Laser Cordless Mouse and the Logitech® LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse were honored with prestigious 2006 red dot design awards for superior design quality and innovative design.

The official presentation of the red dot awards will take place on June 26, 2006, at the Aalto Theatre in Essen, Germany. The winning products will also be on display at a special exhibition from June 27-July 23, 2006, at the red dot design museum in Essen.

“Receiving not just one but two of the prestigious red dot awards is a tremendous honor,” said Guerrino De Luca, president and chief executive officer of Logitech. “We are deeply passionate about industrial design and scrutinize every product´s minute details with the intent of providing our customers with products that exceed their expectations. It´s a great feeling to know that our passion and our process have resulted in such distinguished acclaim.”

“Many companies participating in the red dot design awards have been successfully investing in innovation and design for a long time in order to stand out from the competition and to convey their brand values,” said Professor Dr. Peter Zec, initiator of the red dot design award and president of the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design (ICSID). “However, creativity by itself is not enough; the products also have to be of high quality. And it is also the task of design to communicate this quality.”

The Logitech MX610 Laser Cordless Mouse
While other cordless mice can only send information in one direction — to the computer — the versatile Logitech MX610 Laser Cordless Mouse can receive and process wireless communication from the PC. With this capability, the mouse senses when the computer shuts off and powers down accordingly. And with integrated LEDs (light-emitting diodes), the mouse notifies people when they receive an important e-mail or instant message, or when the mouse battery is low. Sculpted for the right hand, the Logitech MX610 Laser Cordless Mouse delivers a comfortable fit to go along with its stylish silver and black design.

The Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse
Designed to fit comfortably in the right or left hand, the sleek Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse is sculpted on both sides of the mouse, giving it an hourglass shape. The mouse features a soft-touch, rubberized grip, helping maximize comfort. Also, the product comes in two different stylish color combinations: glossy metallic blue/piano black and quartz gray/piano black. Designed to make using a cordless mouse easier than ever, the mouse has a battery life of up to eight months and features a clutter-reducing wireless USB mini-receiver that is plug and play.

The red dot Design Awards
With more than 5,000 entries, the red dot design awards is one of the leading and largest design competitions worldwide. Since 1955, the Essen Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen has annually selected outstanding design quality and paid official tribute to the award-winning products in an exhibition.
