the sensei is 102 grams, the proteus is about 122 at its lightest, without any weights. so 20 grams heavier, or about 20% heavier.

Very nice review. Rep+ Although I can not interpret the mouse tester images....

Is the weight cover closing by magnet? Seing this silver round thing....
This should also weigh something.

Do you reach the end of MB 1+2?

Could you add a 100% horizontal pic camera at the same height with the mouse? That would be wonderful.

Yeah, that's why I have a problem with mice that have weight systems when they're already heavy. If you added all of those weights included with the G502 into the G400/sensei/avior 7000 they would weigh around as much as the EMPTY G502.

I strongly believe the lightest possible mouse is always better but if a mouse has a weight system shouldn't it start out as a lighter mouse when it's empty? If this was 90-100g empty then those complaining about weight simply wouldn't use them instead of it being too heavy to begin with and you lose out on a sale all together.

Logitech could have used a traditional plastic with rubber scroll wheel and shaved many grams from the mouse. The free spinning feature would still work but to a lesser degree. It would still function enough to scroll pages quickly. Nobody needed the wheel to scroll for a minute straight. This is a very poor design choice.

freescroll is a useless gimmick anyways, my middle mouseclick does the same thing but better.

also can the metal scroll wheel taze you?

So, is this the best mouse currently in production (assuming it fits your hand)? I would definitely like to pick one up. :)

Oh I strongly agree with you but since it's clear Logitech is attempting the whole jack of all, master of none thing It would be a good idea to do it properly.

probably. also assuming you don't mind the weight. Average weight for a mouse is probably 100-105 not including cable weight. This mouse is like 121-125 no including cable or the additional weights you can plug in. .

i'm still going to buy this mouse though, the shape looks interesting coming from a sensei.

im just a bit worried that the cable would be too thick for my rantopad mouse bungee.

"This sensor in a shell similar to the Sensei or the Zowie FK would be the best mouse I can imagine." - I concur.

Good review + Rep
