The new Lenovo Legion 5 Pro gaming laptops are rightly taking center stage when it comes to Lenovo’s CES 2022 gaming announcements, but let’s not forget everything else that makes the gaming magic happen. Alongside the new laptops, Lenovo is also introducing new gaming monitors and wireless mice.
The Lenovo Legion Y25-30 gaming monitor is the most impressive of the bunch, featuring a 240Hz refresh rate on its 24.5″ Full HD IPS display. That’s great for games with a lot of high-tempo action, just keep in mind that to make the most of it, everything else in your rig needs to be in tune. It looks like Lenovo is only mentioning support for AMD FreeSync display tech with this monitor, so keep that in mind when considering your next monitor — chances are, this one will be best used with a rig with an AMD Radeon GPU. That’ll ensure that performance and refresh rate are tied together, avoiding any screen tearing.
Color fidelity should be on point, too. Lenovo says this display can produce 99 percent of the sRGB color gamut with Delta E<2 color accuracy, and is certified by VESA DisplayHDR 400. So, colors should pop and contrast between light and dark parts of the screen will highlight any details you might otherwise miss.
Lenovo also introduced the Lenovo G27qe-20 and Lenovo G24qe-20, entry-level monitors with steps down in refresh rate and display quality. However, like the Legion Y25-30, they are Eyesafe certified, reducing the amount of blue light that the displays emit.
Lenovo’s series of gaming mice get a refresh with the Legion M600s Wireless Mouse and Legion M300s RGB mouse. Whether you opt for the wired or wireless mouse, you’ll be getting a mouse ergonomically designed to fit all kinds of grips and that can be used by left or right-handed users alike.
The M600s Wireless Gaming mouse connects to computers using a 2.4Ghz Wi-Fi connection, Bluetooth, or even wired with a USB-C cable. In classic gamer gear fashion, it offers 16.8 million colors with lighting effects, but more practically impresses with 19,000 DPI thanks to its Pixart 3370 sensor. It can last up to 70 hours on a single charge.
The M300s RGB Gaming mouse is a lighter option offering 8000 DPI and a max moving speed of 220 inches per second. It comes with an ultra-soft cable for less drag and can last up to 10 million clicks.
The crown jewel here, the Lenovo Legion Y25-30 Gaming Monitor, will be released in May and will start at $340, with the entry level models coming in March and starting at $260 for the 24″ monitor and $300 for the 27″ monitor. The mice will arrive in May. with the Legion M600s Wireless Mouse going for $85 and the Legion M300s RGB Mouse going for $30.
