Looking for mouse layout similar to Logitech Performance Mouse MX

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been using this mouse for something like 4 years now:



And I'm ridiculously addicted to the button layout on this mouse. Unfortunately, this is not really a "gaming" mouse. It's wireless, and I have no control/knowledge of polling rates and whatnot. Plus, the scroll-wheel is really badly made. It's one of those scroll-wheels with "horizontal scrolling" which in my experience always seems to lead to early degradation of the scroll wheel performance.

That being said, I love the button layout. The grip and weight are also nice, but the thing I want mouse is the button layout--and I haven't found anything else remotely similar.

The three thumb buttons are really well built and positioned, and the downward-thumb button is really awesome in FPS--it lets me press a button without having to stabilize the mouse with pressure from my other fingers.

Does anyone know of a mouse with a similar button layout to this one?

I gave the Logitech G700 a try but the button build quality was complete ass. Thumb buttons were hard to hit accurately, and they actually broke after a few weeks of constant use. I really don't want to get burned like that again while trying another mouse, so I'm looking for suggestions.

3+ thumb buttons with good positioning/quality, bonus points for a downward thumb-button.

I wanted to suggest some mouse, but just remembered what "downward thumb button" means. For anyone that didn't see one of those large wireless Logitech mice, there is an invisible button hidden in the rubberized area where you rest your thumb. To activate it, you press downwards. Does any other mouse have that? I've never seen anything like that except with Logitech.

I'd take a look at the G602. It has a lot of buttons. That might replace the missing downward thumb button for you. Perhaps those extra buttons in the front, intended for the index finger, could replace the missing control from normal thumb buttons.

It might be built differently than the G700 you looked at.

EDIT: Also... perhaps you don't know that, but that G600 with the 12 thumb buttons in a grid, that one has a special button that might be interesting to you. It has a large mouse button for the ring finger on top, a bit like the old three button mice from the time before there were mouse wheels.

Honestly, the downward thumb button isn't necessary for me--it would just be a nice bonus. I realize it's a really rare feature.

I took a look at the G602 and it might be worth a try. Looks VERY similar to the G700 though in terms of button layout. If those thumb buttons aren't up to snuff I'll be disappointed, but it might be the only available choice.

i was going to say a G700 but why not just get another Logitech Performance Mouse MX? It seems that you really like it and thats the best thing when it comes to owning a mouse.
