...Nah, but seriously dude that sucks. Similar thing happened me before. Turned out the idiot driver dropped my package off at the wrong house. Luckily it was an Amazon order and they shipped me a replacement next day free of charge.

Hahaha, thanks man, needed that laugh.

Super pissed but I'm sure it will get resolved in the end, whatever may have happened.

Tomorrow is my only day off this week so it would have been nice to give the G900 a whirl. Guess things can't always go the way we want rolleyes.gif

just got the g900. love the shape/size. i can have my thumb forward, unlike the 502 where i might hit the sniper button. and i can have it hang low with no annoying thumb rest in the way.

I'll give this mouse another week. In casual games like the Division and Borderlands 2, the G900 is a joy. But on CS:GO, Black Ops 3, and BF4... all the G900 did was make me miss the snappiness and light weight of my G303 (and surely I did that and started wrecking again - lol).

Again, I'm not saying this is a bad mouse. There are a bunch of people who loathe the G303. Just because I love it over the G900 doesn't mean that I'm by all means right. We all have opinions (and you know what they say about opinions).

Seriously, I wouldn't mind a wired only version of the G900 (at the cost of a lighter mouse). The ergonomics for the G900 are pretty comfy. I think the price point and its marketing team boasting of wireless goodness over wired mice puts this thing at such a high expectation. It is what it is. There's not a single mouse out there that doesn't have its fair share of critics. I just didn't want to buy into the hype and I wanted to see for myself. I'm not going to defend this mouse like owners do regarding "console wars". It's a premium mouse and it's good. Is it ready for prime time competitive gaming? I'm sure if they pay pros enough money or comp them with enough free stuff (aka: sponsor them), they'll use it (that's a fact).

This is what many would consider objectively bad.

I agree with all of that. How couldn't I. It's physics. rolleyes.gif


But, if we're talking about performance (stopping and starting movements),
it (the weight) is still just a number that has to be seen in combination with:

- the size of the mouse (weight distribution)
- the grip on the mouse (easy to lift to counteract weight)
- mouse feet & mouse pad (different friction -> different stopping and starting movements)

In the end you most likely will only change or have an influence in the feet and pad.

You cannot change the size without buying another product.
You cannot chagne the weight without buying another product.
The shape and size of the mouse can counteract the weight though.

There's always wafer wristed posters perpetrating that brick fud around here. Seems like anything over 90 is on the heavy end for whatever reason.

107 isn't heavy to me personally either but the as usuals will still try to cram it in that its too heavy.

It's happening to me as well. Tonight was the first night I plugged it directly into the cable and I couldn't click on anything but the LGS window that I already had open. I think it's a problem with LGS. Soon as I CTRL-ALT-DEL I could click again.

And there are the usuals like you who cram it in stating that it's not heavy. You say catsup. They say ketchup. Hey, whatever floats your boat. This is beginning to sound like the console debates ("my console is better than yours and how dare you say ANYTHING critical about it!"). It's all about your own personal preferences. Heavy, light, medium, rare, well done, whatever. Heck, I've even heard people saying that the G303 was too heavy! In the end, it's what works for YOU. If you think it's a great mouse, good for ya! I own the G900. I enjoy it. But if it came down to competitive multiplayer games, I'll switch to my G303. That's the beauty of having more than 1 mouse. First world problems... I know :-P

I'm not stating it isn't heavy in factually speaking terms. It's a preference hence the adverb "personally" to clarify that in the sentence (grossly overlooked).

Which is the issue to begin with.

I can use my g303 and switch to a deathadder and not perceive negative repercussions due to weight. I'm never finding myself say "oh I just missed that guys head because my mouse weighs 107g". Obviously it's a personal preference, so I digress.

I do miss shots when using a heavier mouse on my Artisan Hien. Small circular mouse feet and a lighter mouse will make that happen less. This is why I bought the ZA13 and G100S. I plan on making small circle mouse feet for all my mice.

Heavier mice can lead to easier wrist injuries for pro players.

I feel that mice below 85 g are too light and hinder performance. You can get used to it but it's gay.
