And like he said, the support wings. I don't want to risk damaging the connection if I slam it into my keyboard.

Although I rarely use this thing wired (I really can't tell if there's a 'significant' performance increase with this mouse wired vs. wireless - I'm sure there is, but not enough for me to notice) but I do hear ya on the wings on the stock cable. It firmly keeps the micro-USB jack in place. I think just unplugging and plugging the cable is enough to jostle it already. I have an Android phone and after the 100th time unplugging the thing after charging it, the connection seems to get looser and looser. I still never understood the logic in "braided cables" for gaming mice. I think a few manufacturers of wired mice got the right idea (like Zowie). They're lighter and they don't fray as much.

Braided cables give the perception of a higher quality product for very little extra manufacturing cost. I suppose the argument originally was that it provided some kind of extra protection to the cable, but 99% of people don't need the extra protection. How often do you damage one of your computer's cable sheathing? I never have. But now it's more or less just some kind of symbol for 'premiumness'.

While most casual gamers (i.e., the vast majority of the gaming mouse market) might buy into this, it's pretty clear that we enthusiasts prefer non-braided by and large. Whatever benefits the braiding may provide are strongly outweighed by the negatives of added weight, reduced flexibility, and tendency to snag and fray on mousepads.

And I agree about the micro-USB cables. Every phone I've had since the wide adoption of micro-USB power connectors has because loose within a matter of months, presumably from the stress exerted on it when I'm using the phone while it's charging. Most of them would stop charging intermittently if the cable/phone was moved due to this. That's the last thing you want to have to worry about when you're gaming.

But the micro USB *jack* is not the thing that comes loose. It's the cable that plugs into the jack itself. The moving parts on the micro USB cable are on the cable end, while the moving parts on mini USB cables are on the USB device end. So if the moving parts on the mini USB cable broke, then you have to replace the device. If the moving parts on a micro USB cable broke, you replace the cable.

The parts on the device should never become loose or snap off, so just buy a new micro USB cable!

Just purchased this mouse and it should be here tomorrow! Any advice on starting out? Anything that needs like a software update or should it do that automatically when I get the Logitech software?

Haha okay awesome I figured as much just figured I'd ask you all. Honestly can't wait to get it my Steelseries Sensei has been freaking out randomly not tracking and not working. Sensor also always was not that great.

Got mine today and whelp....

An issue someone had on page 120 or something.

Basically, all is perfect except that mouse2 is mushy and lacks the audible click sound.

Mouse1 is perfect, clicky clicky but the other one is terrible in comparison.

However, in-game, hitting stuff with it, as in timing the shots etc. didn't feel off at all. But clicking is much more difficult in comparison to the other one.

Wow. Really? I'd RMA that sucker fast. Logitech is generally good with those (can take a little while but still, it's a $150+ mouse). If you got it through Amazon, even better, they can send you a replacement pronto. Because generally, all the mouse buttons should be nice, clicky and tactile.

Aye, I'm located in Estonia and ordered mine direct from Logitech.

So they sent it through from the Netherlands via UPS(United Parcel Service) to my location.

I received it today and the only other noteworthy element I noticed was while opening the box. The mouse didn't sit on the bottom bit but was kinda stuck on the top one. You know when you remove the upper half of the black box it comes inside?
Also, mine didn't come apart into 2 different pieces. It was more of the likes of a door. So, I've watched unboxings and they all open it up by seperating the 2. Mine though, went like that, as a door that was sort of hinged to the bottom half.
The mouse wasn't stuck on the top one though, as in, it didn't require force to remove it but it was stuck enough that it didn't fall down on its own.

I'll have to confirm that though, will probably film it with my phone and upload it later for simplicity's sake once I get home. Because, I was sleeping when I got the mouse, woke up for 2 hours and went back to sleep and am currently working the night-shift, only to go to bed tomorrow once again and follow up another all-nighter. That's my job thingy.

But yeah, other than that noteworthy bit during unboxing, which could very well maybe be the reason of the right click being in that state? Maybe it was crammed into the box or they have another type of new box design that went a lil' wrong and caused it or idk?
It was nicely wrapped in plastic and there were absolutely zero marks of any tampering or bad shipping anywhere, other than the thing with the top half of the box(that opened like a door and had the mouse stuck in it's place there).

And then the right click being terrible-feeling. Left is awesome, really love the mechanic design.
But yeah. I suppose it's the merit of such technology and moving parts. They can be like that. The worse bit is though, I waited a while for it to arrive(7 days) and it isn't the first or the second or even the third mouse to come with issues as such in this part of the world... which is a damn fre"#" shame.

Anyhoo, will try and contact them tomorrow before I go to bed for the day. I phoned their US number and asked for the EU one which they provided.

800 0044 314

But upon phoning it.

"Unfortunately we cannot service you right now. Please try again later."

Since I'm not home and don't have my serial numbers at hand, I haven't yet posted on their forums for warranty claims or such but I will probably do that tomorrow as well, after the phone call.

EDIT: PS. Another little noteworthy kick in the sack is that it costs 179.00 EUR, which translates into ~198.54 USD. So aye, a bit expensive indeed. But I find it worth it. When it works as intended on all its parts.
Although don't get me wrong, it does. Just the right being so stiff, it'll probably wear down in the matter of months, to an unusable state.

I am about to order G900 since i found it on amazon.co.uk for 114e (Cost 180e in Greece). I must admit that i m torn between this and the Rog Spatha. What do you guys think? Shall i go on or there are any issues with it.
