When can we expect a new generation of Logitech mice? - Page 14

post #131 of 153
People arent to keen on putting their own computers together as it is, and even a lot that does arent keen to try and fix their mice when they break (double clicks, scroll bug .. so on)

Only people that dare to tinker would really do this.

What do I expect from a new generation of Logitech mice?

Understanding how they see business. They can keep doing what have worked for them (casual, over-weighted, fancy and luminous kind of mice) but this time create a PRO line for niche market and competitive people that care for just performance. You Logitech are well known for making good and reliable mice, but sadly you keep messing so bad with some important factors like weight and shape.

Just an example of what you should do:

G502 PRO
- Ergonomic mouse
- Remove the weights
- Kill the sniper button and some extra useless buttons that PRO's never use
- Enhance the sensor (fix the surface tuning, framerate or whatever needs to be done to make it better)
- Reduce the WEIGHT by 30grams at least!!!
- Mouse feet need to be simpler and more efficient
- Keep the engineering, the main buttons and overall build quality

G303 PRO
- Ambidextrous mouse
- FIX that shape (make it more natural/rounded, easier to grip it and easier to adapt to it)
- Fix the sensor wobble problem
- Reduce the weight by 15grams at least
- Mouse feet need to be simpler and more efficient
- Keep the engineering, the main buttons and overall build quality

TL;DR: Reduce the weight and design natural shapes.

Too heavy? I put most of the wieghts in my 505 to make it heavier. Was too light i thought. I like heavy mice. But i also use a very small area. I am not fond of the using an acre of desk space like what seems to be the fad these days.

This is what the world needs tho I would prefer something ~60g

Wouldn't a 60g mouse require it to be tiny and have 2 buttons only?

The G100S without the weight is ~70g.

Considering the Ninox is 70g with an extra pcb and the FM is only 74g I think it possible with some engineering magic. And a tiny mouse is fine by me. The more distance between my mouse and my palm the better.

Logitech G203 -- M-UV55a shape with 3366
post #138 of 153
I expect for them to keep up the good work. They got down all the objective points. Probably the most successful line as well and that's with the saturated market.

Logitech G502 is the number 2 best seller on Amazon. Logitech know what they are doing and they know what the market wants. What a small enthusiast segment wants is not important to a business like Logitech who want to sell beyond that niche.

 

The sniper button is there because people want it. The weight system is there because people want it. The braided cable is there because people want it. The extra buttons are there because people want it. The unlockable scroll wheel is there because people want it. The side tilt scroll wheel is there because people want it. The LEDs are there because people want it. The angular spaceship design is because people think that is cool.

G5v2 was an amazing mouse and mine still works.


I didn't like the G500 and I certainly don't like the new "Proteus" range with all the issues such as feet falling off after only two weeks. Build quality went down a notch or 6.
