New Logitech G-Series - Page 15

post #141 of 243
I had to stop using my g100s since it was giving me unbelievable pain in the palm of my hand, the only mouse that has caused this before was the zowie am; so I think mouse that are too narrow are a no go for me. I wish there was a way to put a decent sensor inside an Intellimouse optical shell. rolleyes.gif

The mouse2 click is completely soggy, as if there was two pieces of tape blocking the connection to the switch. The mouse 1 click is fine and feels like the first g100 did.

The shape and sensor feel fine, but the CHORD oh my god the chord. What in Gods good name did they make this thing out of? It literally feels like it is a wire. If you bend it a way, it stays that way. It has no flex, and using a mouse bungee with it is indeed not possible. You can't push into it at all.

The word disappointed simply doesn't cover the feeling I have right now. I wonder if it is possible to attatch the G100 chord to this instead... Skylit, thoughts?

Either way I'm thinking I'll return it asap. Mouse2 doesn't work and the chord is hands down the worst I've ever seen in any mouse in my 15+ years of gaming and buying gaming mice.

It's unbelievably frustrating to think that small stupid things like this completely ruin what could otherwise have been a really good mouse. Honestly, does logitech even test products before selling them? I can't imagine a single gamer using this mouse and not reacting to how horrible the cable is.


That's pretty much why I swapped G100 top plate a few pages back. There is plastic vinyl inserts on top of each switch. Removing them isn't even an option as there isn't enough leverage to actuate. Mine actually started "squeaking" every once and awhile on mouse 2. (dominant switch for me).

Both G400s and G100s have this new "feature". Click feeling on original G100 and G400 is much more defined.. nicer feedback.


Yeah, I always hated G100/G400 cord. Both are thin and stiff... It's annoying.


Edit: You can frakenmouse both G100's like I did, but the click problem shouldn't be an issue in the first place.

Zowie AM also cramps my hand due to its narrow size. G100S is quite good for me, though.

Read the latest post ye, seems everyone agrees the cable is very stiff, sad.

I guess I'll skip the G100s, guess I will continue waiting for BSTs mouse, sigh biggrin.gif

Yes G100 isn't the perfect shape (bcs G1/mx300 is) It's not possible to improve perfect, u can only make it worse.

Thats why Aurora > G100s (without even testing)

My G100s arrived yesterday, I have been enjoying it. However I didn't realise the mouse2/rightmouse button is squeaky, with headphones on I couldn't hear.

I actually came here to ask if the G100s fixed this problem. I ordered a G100 off of ebay a couple of months ago, and I am currently using it. For me this is the most comfortable mouse for my type of grip and hand size, and I really like this mouse overall. It's perfect for Starcraft 2. The only issue I have with the mouse is the with the right mouse button, similar to what is described above as being "soggy". It feels like the top cover is not sitting all the way flush with the bottom portion of the mouse and feels slightly loose. This causes a squeeking/popping sound everytime I press down on top of the mouse, and it creates a faint "false click" before you actually press down on the right mouse button switch. This really makes the mouse feel cheap, and threw me off at first when gaming. I tried fixing the problem by placing a folded tissue underneath the top cover and placing it back on, but all this did was reduce the "false click" a bit, but it is still noticeable. Like I said, I am still using the mouse though, because it is the most comfortable and accurate mouse for me when I play Starcraft due to it's size and shape. I even prefer it over the G9x. I have gotten use to the weird right mouse button, but I was really hoping they would have fixed this issue with the G100s. I was really excited about the release of the G100s until reading that that same issue seems to be present. It's almost as if there was an error when they made the casting mold for the plastic body, and the cover doesn't line up perfectly with the body. If there is anymore feedback on this I would love to hear it. Also, if anyone is NOT experiencing this similar issue with the G100s, I would also like to hear it, as is may determine whether or not I get one.

G100s is the exact same shape? Only difference is the nose in the front but that doesnt affect it.

Yeh his post is abit strange. The G100s shape = G100 = G1 = MX300. The Ninox Aurora is actually larger than the MX300.

No. Even if you don't have both mice difference in shape is obvious only from pictures.

When you look at G100 from the top you can see sides are curved - it's widest in the middle and then it narrows at the front and back.

MX300/G1 sides are almost straight.

Because of that G100 can feel smaller than MX300/G1 depending on how exactly you grip it and where do you put your fingers.

And I completely agree with acid reptile, MX300/G1/G3 shape is better for me.
