So I just got an original Logitech G9

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Brief impressions:

1. For fingertippers, the fact that the sensor is off-centered towards the thumb, surprisingly, makes the control a lot more precise because it basically becomes an extension of your thumb.

2. Using the G9 au naturale, the sides slopes down and outwards ever so slightly, is a little strange when picking it up, but does not affect the motion per se. One gets used to it rather quickly.

3. The Left Click is golden.

4. Angle snapping: yes, it exists, yet there is so little to it, it's even less than the inherent angle snapping that exists in CM storm Spawn sensor. I am more than certain that even the finickiest gamer will not be affected by it in game. It really is only barely perceptible when drawing in MSPaint.

5. The tab holding the weight tray in place breaks easily.

6. The height is comparable to that of the G100s, but slopes down much more rapidly. Imagine trimming off the G100s rear from the top apex to the butt apex into a flat slope, that's what it feels like. This characteristic of "not filling your hand" is the single most important trait of a pure fingertip mouse.

7. Setting: 800CPI. Actual: 870 on aluminium pad, 900 on every cloth pad I have.

I kept saying that all over again. The g9x is a joke compared to the g9. I still love the feeling of the sensor. Even compared to 3090/3310 or the 3366. I don't understand why people keep hyping the 3366 anyway. Maybe it would be great with a higher framerate.. But it might work better for lower sensitivity.

Some guy on a different forum also had the impression, that the original g9 on 800CPI was even comparable to the legendary mx300 tracking.

Higher framerate than 12500? What's so great about an A2020...?
post #4 of 24
My MX300 felt floaty :} I attributed it to the heavy angle snapping.

As for the 6090 series, I was disappointed. It didn't seem like there was that much improvement over say the Razer's 6018 or Logitech's 6006(6010 varients).

Then again, I was expecting a huge improvement.

Well if the framerate of 12.500 would be static (like the 12.000 fps on the 9500/9800 sensor mice for example). A dynamic contrast ratio of 20.000+ on a tft screen isn't great either. The 3366 has a framerate of ~5000 on slow movements, according to a guy on this forum. So its really not that good, unless your sensitivity is low enough. Not as worse as the framerate of the g100s, but lets not even get this mouse into this discussion-

Don't make it sound like i've compared it to the 3366. I was talking about the mx300 vs the g9. I didn't even say i share the same thoughts. If anything i would say the mx300 has no competition. But let's just skip this.

yea that guy is me
and you should also know that 3310's low speed framerate is ~2000. 3988's is ~3000. thumb.gif

Has anyone yet compared the speed-dependent variances between G9 and G9x?

Haha yes. Even better thumb.gif

The problem is, the most people don't even notice "as the g100s sensor is awesome" rolleyes.gif

Weird enough, the am101 is the only sensor i've tested, where the anglesnapping from povohats driver feels somewhat "bad". Even with low values eg. 1 or 2. As if the sensor comes with its own anglesnapping, but it doesn't. Too bad, as this kind of shape can really benifit from the right amount of anglesnapping. I think that wmo/sensei, or ")(" shaped mice in generall, don't benifit from it as much, as they are already pretty easy to handle for horizontal movements anyway. Didn't help much with the aurora though, unless using it in a logitech G1 shell. (but after all the 3090 works pretty well with this feature.) Might have to do with sensor position. It's pretty high for me with the aurora wink.gif

Wonder why the do this "variable framerate" thing in the first place. Maybe a "too high" static framerate was the problem with ADNS 9500 mice? I don't have the impression of a too low framerate with the 3310. I had the imagination of smoothing vs. the 3090 of the FK13 vs FK1, but not really in a bad way. Maybe the much more stable pollingrate makes up for this. I really like the FK1 @ 1k polling, despite playing pretty high sens lately.

How do I properly test for speed variances? Doing flicks in CSGO seems to yield no perceptible deviations beyond the standard margin of error.
