Review of Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Wireless Gaming Mouse - by Ino - Page 59

post #581 of 867
That problem can easily be solved by putting an item of equivalent weight (like stacking a few spare G502 weights together!) and securing it with the double sided tape, foam, or anything that will allow you to remove it again later (Super glue would be a last resort). But I don't know why ANYONE would buy a *$150* mouse to remove the battery from it (thus removing what is responsible for 40% of the price over a G502 Spectrum).

I mean people who remove the battery from this would only do this if they think the G900 shape is the best shape Logitech has ever created, and worth it over buying a no sensor rattle fixed G303.
(and I think the Ambi design on the G900 is excellent and much better than the G502 AND easier to clean the sides!)

But yes, ignoring my rant, wired+battery is the best weight distribution. That basically makes it a better, no tilt heavy prone g502 Spectrum.

I took battery out and indeed it became front heavy, took mouse apart again and put 20 euro cents in (less than 6grams). Weight is still under 100 grams and weight balance is much better.

Oh ok. Shame, was kinda considering getting this makes it pointless.

I find the balance with battery out to be quite nice, but of course you would have to try it to decide for yourself... biggrin.gif

agreed.

I think the type of mouse pad could also help out with the balance. I've got a Corsair MM600 Double-Sided mouse pad, featuring a heavy-texture finish on one side for maximum handling and a sleek, high-speed glide skin on the reverse, and I think the heavy texture side is the best one for the mouse, smoother, no scratching.

I picked this mouse up for $177 CAD yesterday. Upgraded from a G502, and while I think it has a couple of quirks, I still consider it to be far superior to the G502.

The quirks that bother me, but not necessarily everyone:

- Mouse buttons have slight horizontal sway. I can feel it when I move the mouse left/right and sometimes when I press down from a fingers-hovering position.
- The way I rest my fingers on the buttons, I keep accidentally hitting the right mouse button because it's so sensitive.
- I also frequently and accidentally hit the extra buttons on the right when I have them installed.

The latter two are things I just have to get used to because I don't think I've used an ambidextrous mouse before. I'm glad to be back to the freedom of wireless, my G602 just didn't cut it; the weight and sensor just felt sloppy to me.

Do you find the right mouse button to be more sensitive or the same sensitivity as the G502?
I find them to be exactly the same (the G303 seems to be slightly more sensitive, having just a bad bit less resistance, but the lower profile compensates for that), except the G900's mouse buttons are at the apex of the height of the mouse (more like an ambidextrous peanut) about equal to the backside, while the G502 is on a pure oval, while the G303 is on a flattened oval type "bullet car / space shuttle craft" type shape.

The thing that the g900 massively improves on vs the G502 is the g502's tendency to favor tilting to the right side (just look at the underside, although from the underside, that's on the left side, then you can tell how the stability is not balanced. The G303 is very stable, not favoring tilting at all, and the G900 is just if not even more stable than the G303.

On mine, the RMB has a very tiny bit of sway, but only if you're actually looking for it. Can't tell at all when I'm actually playing a game. The RMB for me isn't easy to accidentally press at all, it's firm like the G502's RMB. I was having much more tendency to accidentally press the side buttons on the right, so I just disabled them and put on the cover.

I just put them side by side and it's really hard to tell the difference between click sensitivity.. But actually physically holding the G900, I still accidentally register the right clicking, It's getting better though, as I adjust. I think it can be attributed to their new click design and how I hold my finger on it, center most of the time, but sometimes right on the edge.

Out of curiosity, does yours do this? It's all horizontal movements. I might just be really picky about minor issues, I just don't really like any movement before I click lol

My LMB? Barely. It moves but barely.
RMB? Yes, moves about twice as much as my LMB.
Your LMB seems to move a bit more than my RMB.

Then again, I'm not forcing it so I don't know how much force you're using.
