Looking for a replacement for Logitech G9X

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, I currently am using a Logitech G9x with a steel series QcK mousepad. I had this mouse since 2012 but due to its disconnecting issues, I took it apart and soldered the wires as provided by a guide. It had worked for roughly 6 months but it is starting to reconnect and disconnect again. I love the mouse but I don't want to have to take it apart again. I searched for possible topics in regards to previous owners of the G9x to see if there were recommendations. While there were, I was hoping for a more current list. I currently use the precision grip and 28g of weight in the mouse.

1. What's your grip style?

Strangely, I use a fingertip grip when at rest. But when I start playing, I swap to a claw, claw/fingertip hybrid grip

2. What's your sensitivity?


I currently use 1600 dpi.

3. What's your maximum budget?

I would prefer if the mouse is $60, willing to pay 10-15 max more.

4. Do you want additional buttons?


I would like the 2 side buttons, and middle mouse button. I don't really care about dpi changing mid game.

5. What games do you play?


I play League of Legends, Starcraft II, and WoW. I play a few single players such as Farcry, Saints Row as well.

6. Do you mind about prediction?


My mouse had prediction unless I misread. I would prefer to have minimum to no prediction.

7. Other relevant information:


I would like to have a wired mouse. No wireless please. Optical or laser don't mean much to me.

Thanks again.

There's really no reason not to get an optical mouse especially when mice like the Corsair M45 exist. I think the Avior 7000 would work really well for you but you have to go just 5 bucks over max budget.

Is Mionix reputable? I'm not to informed on computer peripheral companies outside the major marketed brands such as Logitech or SteelSeries.

The Avior 7000 looks very sturdy just from the pictures however. I wouldn't mind paying the extra 5-10 if it's dependable. Also, where did you find it for $65? I checked Newegg and it seemed to be $80.

They've been around for a couple of years and it seems their quality has been consistently good so far. I don't have avior 7000 (might change soon-ish) but I'm having a hard time finding negative opinions on anything else about it than different preferences in ergonomics. Pretty much the only mouse in that price range I'd consider at the moment.

I am a beta tester for the company now. They are a company of 5 extremely determined Swedes making better mice than Logitech, SteelSeries, or Razer has ever been able to. That's saying something. If you have an issue, their Twitter is SUPER responsive and getting a replacement is a cinch. I got mine for $65 only cause I bought it off someone else in new condition on eBay. A good deal, lol. That was before it was even offered on Amazon Prime, otherwise I probably would have bought it that way.

Me too, this mouse is easily worth $80. There's almost nothing I can complain about, it just rocks.

Quick question - what's the difference between the IR-LED optical sensor like on the Avior and a laser sensor? Both are using infrared for their source, no?

I'm going to go ahead and give this mouse a try. Just a final question, is there any difference between the 8200 vs 7000 except the dpi? If not, might as well just get the 7000.

Yeah they are using infrared wavelengths, but the problem is that the way movement is interpreted is in particularly different in a troublesome way on the laser sensor's SROM.

Huge. The 8200 has an ADNS-9800 sensor, which has annoying inconsistent positive acceleration because that sensor is the same architecture as the ADNS-9500 infamously used in the Xai and Sensei. You do NOT want that if you can avoid it. Thankfully, you can with the Avior 7000, which is equipped with a PMW3310 optical IR LED sensor that has perfect within +-0.5% 1:1 movement with no acceleration and extremely high maximum movement speed ceiling (~5.4 m/s). You shouldn't only choose the Avior 7000, you should actually avoid the Avior 8200.
