Hey I bought that Sica! I liked the switch replacement system but I ended up never replacing them, as I only used the mouse for a few months. It's not a horrible mouse, just a bit too narrow shape with a weird side grip angle, and a meh build quality (considering the price and the ROG tag, it's a joke).

Not sure how popular the G100 shape is in practice, but I think it has a lot to do with how it's advertised. As (I think) Derp pointed out, the simple shape and low weight would win a lot of people over if they bothered to try it and disregarded the current marketing gimmicks of "bigger, higher cpi, heavier, shinier, more features" = better.

If Logitech started advertising these as high end gaming mice, instead of low-tier desktop/gaming, I'm sure it would be more popular.

Then again, I'm probably a biased user regarding the shape, as I started computing with the mouse shown below. And even at the time, switching to bigger/ergo mice made no sense at all (not that I didn't try), my dexterity with these was much better:

I'm pretty sure he meant to say the Zowie's Mico instead of the FK when he was talking about this logitech mouse being bigger. He was so doubtful before saying "FK or something"

I thought the exact same thing. He was struggling with the name of the zowie model he wanted to compare it to, sounded a little tired. I don't think there are many people that want a 'bigger' fk1 (even though they just released one). Now a slightly bigger Mico... that's a different story.

They will not finally make a good mx300 replacement. Just can't be. They will mess this up using the G100 shape again.

How different is the g100s shape compared to the mx300? They look the same to me, except for the separate buttons.

Yea that'd make sense. Anyway, what they could be doing is adapting the g100s shape to a new target. We all know the g100 has been popular in asian countries, now if Logitech wants this mouse to be the new great thing for America/Europe, I'm sure they will be forced to at least make it bigger than the previous versions. I don't know if it's because of the new lights design but it gives me the impression that this mouse has more width than my g100s

Those mice don't move as many units as one would think is the issue. That is why I suggested in an earlier post to buy these up. Logitech did it twice and if they don't move units then you'll have another G9 scenario.

Those Sensei clones, despite being everything that was suggested from keyboard product managers for years, do not sell incredible amounts and yield Wall Street profits and totally own the gaming mice consumer market like it was fore told.

You have it in the last few posts where people are suggesting marketing angles and such showing how detached they are from reality. The other mice are selling loads (check the earnings statements and places like Amazon top seller lists) and yet people are thinking the mice aren't popular. Stuff like this (and the Aurora for that matter) would be why companies don't listen to that small section of the community.

Again, buy it up. Show up with your wallet. Otherwise it may not happen ever again.

It's hilarious when people argue Logitech is out of touch because of the weight and sniper button on the G502 when that mouse is their best seller. You speak to average gamers and many will argue that a higher weight is better and more premium. These people also tend to play at very high cm/360. Never heard of anyone wanting an LED display on their mouse though but Steelseries seem to be infatuated with the idea.

 

I doubt the G303 ever sold that well. It's not that great of a shape but it doesn't have the "features" that will make it a good seller at a high price point. I just hope that the sales are at least good enough for Logitech to continue making mice like that in the future.

Mico is 100mm which is tiny. G200 is wider the FK1 but I doubt it's longer.

i could only see the front being slightly different. i prefer the MX300, it's slightly more comfortable for my ring-finger. and because of the different button design and the different texture.

My guess would be he meant the original FK and was not remembering what that is in current models (it's the FK2).

Also I'm one of the people who really likes the FK1+ size.

Isn't the mx300 the same as the rx250 shape? If so then I don't really see a big difference to the G100s really. But I'm all ears what the differences might be.
