I have a G700 - it's an overall awesome mouse, especially considering the competition. It has two major hardware flaws that any potential buyer should be aware of.

1. The battery life is rubbish. Even brand new, the mouse has around 8 hours of wireless gaming in it before it has to be plugged in and recharged.

2. The scroll wheel's tactile mode is barely different from free-spin. If you're looking for a nice solid *click* when switching weapons in your favorite FPS, you're out of luck here. It's not a big deal, really, but it does get on your nerves after a while when you consider how easy it would have been for Logitech to make the differentiation more noticeable.

Personally I wouldn't go for a wireless mouse but that's just me. G700 is probably the cheapest and best.

I bought a logitech g700 last week to replace my broken g7. So far the mouse is a mixed bag. I will probably return it.

The good:

- The shape of the mouse is good. It fells right in my hand.
- The mouse looks good. It doesn't scream "i'm a gaming mouse" like the naga does.
- The software is awesome. Best mouse software i used ever hands down.
- The cable is neat and working as intended.
- Out of the 8 g buttons i can easily reach 4 of them without changing my grip on the mouse.

The bad:

- The battery life is bad. It's about 8 hours at best. I played wow for 1½ hour yesterday at 500ms pooling rate (max is 1000ms) and gaming mode and then coded for 3 hours at 125ms pooling rate and economy mode and the battery is already at around 60%. This means that for around every 8 hours of wireless gaming you'll have to do 2 hours of wired gaming (20%) since there's no other way to charge the battery. It's really that bad.
- The mouse is slippy. Every time i lift it i feel like i'm gonna drop it and need to strengthen my grip a little bit.
- The g buttons left to the left click button does get in the way. After 1½ hours of wow i already misclicked once. I would probably get used after a while but a good designed mouse should not require me to get used to it. The left click button is too small and i see myself misclicking one of those g buttons here and there.
- The distance at which tracking cut off during mouse lift is not adjustable. And this distance seems too big for me.
- The "cap" (not sure if it is the word used in english) to protect the battery is cheap so if you plan to have multiple batteries with a charger and switch them this cap gonna break quickly no doubt about it.


After my g7 died i bought the g700 without reading reviews cause i expected it to be an improved version of the g7. The fact is save for the extra buttons and better software the g7 is superior in every possible way. Better grip thanks to rubber coating. 2 batteries and a perfect system to charge one while using the other and switch them quickly in the middle of a game. Tracking of the g7 was good enough i don't see this as an improvement.

I think i'll return the g700 and try the mamba 2012. Not as much buttons but the buttons left of the left click button seems to be less intrusive and there's a charging cradle so if the battery life is bad i'll be able to charge it every 2 nights. I wish the mamba charging cradle would let me charge a battery without it being inside the mouse (to be able to buy a 2nd battery and do like the g7) but i can deal with it.

The g7 batteries system was perfect i'm surprised nobody did copy it and i'm even more surprised logitech itself never used it again. Logitech had a winner with the g7. It's sad they did not make a worthy successor.

Um. Not sure.. if serious...

You do know you can buy an Eneloop charger that comes with 2 spare batteries (same as in the mouse) for ~$10 from Amazon? I bought my G700 in January and haven't ever even used the cord.

It's not slippery at all. The sides feel sort of textured to prevent slipping. You must have super sweaty hands.

PEBKAC. I haven't had any issues with this.

I don't have mine on my mouse anymore; it's in a drawer somewhere. Makes it easier/faster to switch out batteries.

The Mamba is an absolute joke in terms of quality and QC compared to the G700. I owned the Mamba before my G700. Not even close. The only issue I've had with my G700 is the left button switch gave out and was causing random double clicks, but Logitech RMA'd the mouse no charge.
