Outside of that, I love that mouse. If your shell is loose it's likely just not seated right, or the pegs holding the shell in are faulty.

I always see people complain about the scroll wheel, I have no issues with it.. Easy to press, never got sticky, though I wash my hands often...

and as for the shell, I've only seen people complain of it happening with the textured grip, it's not a seating problem or a problem with the metal peg thingies, since the other grip doesn't budge if I switch them, also if I remove the weights it's not so bad, but I like it heavy frown.gif

I had the g9x for about an hour until I returned it back to amazon. I was very comfy to use and the buttons were pretty use to press.

I must be crazy then, because I have 2 G9s and 2 G9x and they all have exactly the same middle mouse wheel. If you're using it on the "normal" setting (ie. it clicks when you scroll it), it is very awkward to press down. You have to put a lot of pressure on it to depress it, and it has barely any travel at all and very little feedback when you actually "click" it.

The middle mouse button is the only one that is difficult to press though, all other buttons are great on it. But I use the middle mouse button a lot when not gaming and it's a real pita to press.


Oh and as far as the rubber being 'sticky' it's not from dirt from your hand, it seems to be from the grease used inside the mechanism for the mouse that causes it, or at least facilitates it. I take very good care of my gear.


By contrast, the scroll wheel on the G700 is fantastic with none of the issues from the G9/G9x series.

No offense, but I have to disagree about the middle mouse button on the g9x. Its not difficult to press but it all depends on the user. thumb.gif

Here is a layout on how I control my mouse.

Pointer finger - left button/ scroll wheel
the finger next to the pinky - right click
thumbs - side buttons.


Now, I'm seriously thinking of switching from g400 to g100 if it has a flawless sensor. I don't play FPS games at all for this mouse g400.

No man, I've had G9 and two G9x's, all with the same wobbly grips after few times of changing.

Hell yeah, you can now use its full advantage on your 6-display setup!
...you do have 6 displays hooked to your PC right? Otherwise why would you be so excited about that DPI?

Shame logitech decided to revamp their G500 and G700 instead, both terrible for gaming IMO.
Highly unlikely, g400 and g9x are completely different range (according to logi) - besides, one is laser, the other one is optical.

About the g9x scroll wheel - I guess it's user dependant but I have some issues getting used to scroll click coming from other mice back to logi. Any logi that is.
mx series, g series etc, all have the wheel put rather deep into the shell.

Mx Revo is the only one that sticks out a bit.

Logitech G100s







post #69 of 243
that was fast. My preorder hit my account 2 days ago, so I'll probably get mine pretty soon as well.

Please post your new G100s and G400s' impressions, reviews if you could. I am kindly interested in new versions. Are they worthy to upgrade?
