Good review + Rep

Which is like always the case.
Either you got an outstanding shape but sensor fails or the Sensor is indeed awsome and the shape sucks.

After a mouse with a good shell & sensor gets released a better sensor appears and suddenly none cares about the other mice (just look at the 3090 mice).
While the one with the new sensor gets alot of hype.

I still think most companies still do not get the keypoints FPS gamers do want to see in their mice.

Great mouse. Just got the last one this morning from best buy, right when it opened. They only had one left.
Liftoff is 1 CD on every surface.
And at first I was worried about possibly pressing the DPI change buttons on accident (even though it's not easy to do that anyway), then I found out you can also disable the DPI change buttons and the "sniper" button or have one of the three profiles with only one DPI step (which disables the dpi change), through the software, as well as changing the default polling rate of each profile, so you'll never worry about pressing anything accidentally.

And once your settings are done, you can move the mouse to another computer, without the software, and all the settings are onboard and apply from the profile switch.

This feels like the next true Deathadder 3G (flawless sensor) without the liftoff distance problems.

Thanks for the great review, it mirrors my sentiments exactly.

We have the same grip, did you have any issues hitting the DPI UP button while gaming? I did a couple times during my first session, but quickly got used to it.

Thanks for taking the time to do a review. I've been itching to replace my G700, which is still working just fine, with a new mouse for some time. Looks like Logitech has once again managed to separate me from some of my hard earned cash.

if hitting the dpi buttons is ever a problem, just set the software to have one DPI step in one of the profiles, then use the G9 button to switch to that profile. Then you wont have to worry about ever pressing the sniper button or the dpi buttons, and its saved in onboard memory.

Still room for improvements and alot of buttons / stuff like the wheel could get removed.
Atleast for me. Especially the buttons aren't even flat.

Thumb rest seems too small and the sniper button is in the way.
Left click has those annoying buttons next to it.
Pinky / ring finger rest too small at the front.

I don't see the point in having a heavier mouse just because of some fancy scroll wheel. Just put a simple one being lighter without that 24/7 spin.
..as mentioned you can also use the mouse3 button for scroll stuff.

Don't get me wrong.. features are nice but if they hinder or distract from actual gameplay that's a no go for me.
As a halfway decent FPS gamer you don't need all that fuzz. 2 side buttons & on the fly DPI switches at max.

i guess those things you mentioned someone else might like, guess its personal.
i do agree though.

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.
