Looking for a Logitech G1 replacement

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
1. What's your grip style? Claw grip with not so exagerated "claw" position, a bit fingertip.

2. What's your sensitivity? 800 dpi and mid sensivility on SC2, lower on CS

3. What's your maximum budget? 60€

4. Do you want additional buttons? No need.

5. What games do you play? SC2 mainly and CS sometimes

6. Do you mind about prediction? I don't know if Mx300 or Logitech G1 have but you can take this mouses as good for my taste.

7. Other relevant information:

I have been out of gaming for a while so I have been using an a4tech for daily usage without major problemas.
When I came back a few months ago I bought a Xornet for its low price and Omron switches but shape never felt ok in my hand.
Tried the Zowie Mico but it was a little too small and hated Huano switches for being too stiff.
Also tried G400 but is too heavy and big for my hands and taste.

From what I remember, Mx 300 was the best mouse I ever had, I loved the shape and I have never had problems with it.

I found on ebay a Lenovo remarked Logitech G1 and I bought it. After opening it for being shure its not fake and realizing it's real G1 I was really happy, but know after a while I feel like I should buy a modern mouse that compares with the G1

Now I'm again into practicing SC2 and CS and I would like to choose the mouse that suits my needs. Shape is very important and also good performance with relatively low dpi and sensibility.

What I thought I might like:

Logitech G100
SS Kinzu V2 pro
Zowie EC2? (don't know if also has huano switches)

Lenovo branded G1? What did it look like? Also is there a reason you want to change mice? I just bought a G1 from ebay for I think $23?

G100 has a higher max malfunction/linear tracking speed and 500hz default, but the sensor is rather weak and doesn't have the greatest cursor quality due to poor decisions on logitech's part.

The G1's sensor is technically superior, although linear tracking speeds are likely going to be lower due to configuration. (Negative acceleration curve) I would honestly continue using this mouse if you don't have any issue with it.

I'm in the same position as you. My favorite mouse was the MX300 and I currently use a Logitech G1. After trying many mice I really haven't found anything that can replace the G1, the G100 was almost a perfect mouse but I stopped using it due to the quality of the sensor. I went back to my Logitech G1 with hopes that someday Logitech will make a newer MX300/G1 with a great sensor. The Logitech MX300/G1/G100 shapes are also one of the few mice I can grip comfortably without my wrist being strained, but that's a whole different issue in itself.
