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 tastes, requiring me to cup my hand in a pretty tight arc, which is made worse with the precision grip, the narrow textured one featured in this website's display image.

The DPI switch is really hard to hit on the fly.

I like the two shell options but wish the wide one was textured as well or that Logitech would release additional shells with pinky rests and different shapes.

I would highly recommend this mouse to claw/fingertip grip users, it's palm friendly but don't expect to rest your entire hand on it.

As I was looking at this item to purchase I really appreciate your review. Since I'm not a claw/fingertip person and like you I like pinky rests I think I might go with something else.
