Why are people saying this? MSRP is in the same range as any other major mice brand...

Because mice with such mechanical design used to cost 33-50%. Then the gaming BS started and they overpriced mice while ruining their mechanical and grip design at the same time, charging more for worse products.
There still are some good decently priced alternatives but it's difficult to find one that doesn't suffer bugs in HW or SW.
The manufacturing cost and design too is pretty damn low for mice. They charge a lot because they simply can due to the gaming hype in last decade as fast internet got widely available.

Or because they need to pay the bills for all their marketing and sponsorship partners, not to mention that they have by far the biggest R&D expenses in the biz.

It doesn't really show in the products they release most of the time. I know they have nice R&D but the products they spit out so far were borderline unusable or technical gimmicks like G900.
They had the MX500/518 and after that the series took a downward spiral down to heavy G502 crap.

I've used even smaller Logi mouse before, 99mm, 50mm, 33mm which was waaay too tiny for me but I sure can adapt to small sizes if the mouse otherwise is solid and doesn't restrict my grip, which the side buttons may unfortunately on G Pro.
At least they did design it with the mechanical parts the way I think they should be on any mouse and like they used to be on old mice.

The lack of Omrons all around is kind of weird though, dunno how long those Kaith are gonna last. I do understand the scroll wheel button being necessarily different due to dimensions but the rest could have been Omrons just like good old MS mice were all around Omrons with no cost cutting on switches.

It should cost the same as G303 when checking Logitech web... which could be acceptable as long as retailers don't get too greedy.

10th September is damn long away though frown.gif

I thought the g303 used omron switches, with a modified tension system although I could be wrong (did not open my g303 since I eventually returned it and did not want to void warranty). From Ino's review, the Pro sounds like it is using the same switches as g303. Also note that g303 was $69.99 MSRP. They were eventually on sale for $24.99, so you can just wait for the sale to hit

Just go look at their current job openings for a feel of how many bodies they employ in the R&D department. And just because their products don't meet your personal standards doesn't mean they are gimmicky or they weren't expensive to develop. I consider the G900 (with some modifications) to be the best mouse I've ever used, and I doubt the G Pro Gaming Mouse will replace it because the shape of the G900 is so much better for me.

But Logitech invests a lot of money and time into innovating somewhat mundane things like button actuation mechanisms, whereas most companies spend little to no money in innovation and instead sell their products on the core aspects like shape, weight, and sensor, which are things determined from the ODM parts they choose.

So if you're offended by the profit margin for Logitech products, I'd hate for you to know the profit margins of a Zowie, a Steelseries, or a FinalMouse.

I love how they just say 3 things in their mouse trailer.

"Classic shape"
"Extra wide scroll wheel"
"Highest end sensor"

They could've added "epic M1/M2 buttons".
