I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to you. The only thing I wish it had was more custom sized shells for sale. I also dig the adjustable weight idea, except I'm not very good at making the connection between weight and my gameplay so...

In short: don't go with the wannabe's, stick with what we all know works: A logitech.



.ps. the adjustable DPI is awesome, it has low, med, hi, ultra sensitivity settings which are great for any game, TF2 comes to mind, switching modes as a sniper for greater responsiveness or to slow my aim down so as not to miss my target. I don't know how much the logitech software can add to the sensitivity adjustability because I don't use it, no need
Yeah I know Logitech works, Razer is pretty good too and Microsoft... lets not mention what happened the last time I used a MS keyboard+mouse combo...

I'm stuck between Razer and Logitech. Both have worked for me before...

Its hard to click rather than drag as it rocks slightly. Also it tracks on its own even with the latest drivers.
I know a lot of people like it but I seriously don't.
Because of all this I would say try before you buy.
Mine was a nightmare. It even made my hand go numb its such a strange shape.
The worst thing was that it would drag rather than click. It would take 3 or 4 goes to open anything.

Were you using the mouse on hard wood or a mouse pad?

The Lachesis seems to have many good features but also has a few ergonomical set backs . does anyone know where I can try before I buy one of these? Probably JB-HIFI.

What is the logitech mouse called again? G5/7? I don't like numbers lol

I've read about the first 10 reviews I could find about the Lachesis. I'm going to read up about the G9.

At 500hz you might notice a slight roughness at resolutions over 1920 x 1200.
Otherwise that looks like a bargain!

I tried the Lachesis on a hard mouse pad and a cloth one.
No matter the surface it would still drag rather than click.

The G9 is $30 more than the Lachesis so is it worth that extra $30 (50%)? I mean $100 is a pretty penny to pay for a mouse considering I bought my keyboard and mouse for near that price. Convincing the higher ups to let me after I save up that amount would be hard too.

@NrGx: can you give me a quick summary of that mouse? Please ?

What does the polling rate actually do? I read somewhere that it increases CPU load, not that it matters since most of my core is usually idle but I would like to know what it does.

Its the reports to the pc of where the mouse is.

The higher it is the smoother the mouse will feel.

I did some tests with different rates on the G9 and found that there is no FPS drop using a higher polling rate. Also 1000hz uses less than one percent processing power.

Well that's good to know. 1000hz is the highest around I think. I think I am leaning a bit more towards the razer one now unless the g9 goes on sale although I will read more about the quality problems of the Lachesis.

People are gonna shoot me down for this.
but,
I recommend my mouse, the Razer Copperhead. Not over-priced, 1000Hz polling rate, up to 2000dpi, paired with a Razer Mantis Control, I'm liking this MUCH more than my previous G5 + Steel Series Icemat.

At the end of the day it's all about you though.

Goodluck mate

I will be here to console you if you do go for the lachesis.
Copperhead would be a better buy.
