Best Mouse I've Had So Far If Tone Doesn't Drive You Nuts, Might Need a Wrist Rest + No DPI Switching In Macros

Posted

Pros: 5 Buttons, Glides effortlessly (when clean), 5 level sensor configurable from 200-5700 DPI, Customizable LED color, Swappable grips, Onboard memory

Cons: Might need a wrist rest for extended periods, Short, No DPI switch in macros; Low, high pitched noise when idle; Only two grips

Of all the mice I've had, this is the best one so far. I've used Logitech mice since the original Wheelmouse, so I expect a lot from them, and this mouse delivers on almost every account. The mouse feels great, is a breeze to use, and the software gives a very thorough range of tuning. It's marketed as a gaming mouse, but I find many of the functions useful for other things. Unfortunately, it's designed with righties in mind, sorry lefties. Before you go on reading the rest of this review, if you have sensitive hearing, this might be a deal breaker for you. When the mouse sits still, it produces a high-pitched tone, but it's very soft, so I don't hear it unless I put my ear up to it or...

The G9x

Posted

Pros: Light weight, good tracking, customization through setpoint

Cons: high LOD, narrow, DPI switch placement

I ordered this as a knee jerk reaction to the RAT7 which I reviewed, but still recommend despite its flaws, that said, about the G9x, it came highly recommended and so I had to see what I was missing out on. The biggest selling points for me were how incredibly light the mouse is with all the weights removed. The sensor performs awesomely, but best on a hard surface. Setpoint offers great customization options, from adjustable acceleration, 5 dpi settings, custom LED colors, and the usual options. The mouse wheel is awkward to click with. I find the side buttons hard to push with any standard grip making the use of them on-the-fly awkward and clumsy. The mouse is too narrow for my...

Logitech G9x Review

Posted

Pros: On the fly DPI adjustments, adjustable grips, five hot key buttons

Cons: DPI button placement

Overview The Logitech G9x is the replacement of the Logitech G9 with the only difference being the G9 had a max DPI setting of 3200 while the G9x can handle DPI up to 5700. Never less the Logitech G9x is a great mouse with five programmable hot keys and adjustable grips with the choice between a gaming grip which is a lot smaller and has a coarse grip and a web surfing grip which is a lot wider and has a smooth grip. Another important thing I should note is that is mouse is made for someone who has a claw grip and not for someone who uses a palm grip. Another great feature that you can fiddle with on the G9x is that you can add weight to the mouse in the weight holding bay (up to 28...

good for FPS and RTS

Posted

Pros: good sensor, comfortable, Logitech customer service, customizable

Cons: lack of extra buttons?

I got mine used from a trade on OCN and the cable was all kinked, called Logitech and they sent me a brand new one... great customer service. I had heard these dont do well on soft mouse pads because of the sensor... not true in my case. Mine has worked great for FPS games and RTS as well with a Steelseries Qck+ mousepad. The weight system and grip styles are a plus for picky users like myself, also it works well in claw grip or even palm if you have smaller hands. The build quality is top notch. I have used the G500, MX518 as well and this one is the best of the 3.
