Is anyone finding the G700 uncomfortable? - Page 3

It was either it or the Performance Mouse MX. I'm not much of a gamer, but I appreciate having volume and mute buttons in addition to the traditional forward and back buttons on a mouse. A lot of people complain about the G700 having tracking issues and not much is seen on the G9/x and that's funny, because as far as I know, the internal laser sensor and board is about the same for all three models of mice. I'm not sure how people manage to drain their batteries on wireless in a few hours because my Logitech came with Eneloop from Sanyo. It lasts 3-4 weeks at the highest sensitivity on wireless signal. Personally, if Logitech ever come out with a G800, it should have the same number of buttons as the G700 but feel more ergonomic, such as the Performance Mouse MX.

My 700 drains an eneloop in @ 8 hours with the polling rate on 1000. BUT since I bought some extra eneloop's and never game wireless anyway it's not an issue for me.

Could you please be specific? I said a lot in my post, but I assume you're talking about size?

Doing what exactly? Gaming with lots of clicks and macros? That seems normal, but the battery itself shouldn't drain down to 0. It would drain down to say 55-60% which causes errors with the polling function.

Does anyone know if the G700 is bigger or similar in size to the G400?
post #24 of 28
I have had the G700 for 5 of months now, and I am happy with it. I like the texture on the sides, and it is quite big. Quite heavy too, but I like that. The wireless works great, without any lag at polling rate 1000, but that might be because I have a very short distance between my mouse and the receiver, max. 50cm / 1 foot 8 inches.

I find it very comfortable, I can use it for hours in a row. I suffer a bit from rsi in my wrists, because of that I use a microsoft natural ergonomic keyboard 4000 (long name, i know, great keyboard btw). I do not suffer from any problems with this mouse. It required 2-3 weeks of getting used to for me, but now I'm used to it, it is the ultimate mouse for me.

About the battery life, it is fine for me. If I just use it for regular computer tasks (school etc.) the battery lasts for about 2-3 days, then I have to recharge it at night. For intensive gaming, it lasts for about 1-2 days.

I hope I have helped you a bit.

i don't like the shape of the G700 because of the slight curve. My index finger is straight and not curved, so i prefer a more straight left side. Maybe it's more an optical thing. wink.gif
But the overall weight with battery or accu is a nogo for me. Feels like a brick to me.

My thoughts of the G700 :
-Excellent fit for the palm on medium to large size hands
-third mouse button is awkward at first but amazing
-thumb buttons are horribly configured!!!!!!!!!! access to all the buttons is clumsy and awkward at best and this is where the Naga destroys this mouse. all of the buttons are easy to access at any moment and the muscle memory builds very fast. the toal opposite with this mouse, could not get comfortable with this mouse for any game over hours of use.

Logitech tried to change the most important feature of the mouse which was easy access to many buttons. What happend was they created 2 groups of 6 angled buttons. If they had kept to flat buttons this mouse would have destroyed the Naga on every level. The drivers are excellent and easy to customize, not to mention non-intrusive like Synapse 2.0.

Wonders if you are confusing the G700 with the G600.... the G700 only has 4 larger side buttons... the G600 has 12.

It's great. Like one of the above posters said it could be a bit heavier. But I really like how the thumb buttons are distinct.
