It's basically an mx300 with G400 internals, yet almost everyone wants one. Logitech could have brought this mouse to market. Instead they gave us the G300....

Yep, logitech is sooooo far out of touch. It's really a shame because they have had a history of some legendary mice.

It seems to be a modified version of this mouse with entirely different parts inside and outside. The general shell shape is similar.

The MX300 shape is my favorite since I claw-fingertip grip. Can also palm it too.

bst was told about this mouse, and he denied that both mice have the same shell nor internals (it's still there on ESReality forums), to the point to explain that some of the differences in the mouse would require a new mold to be made.

That is what he claims. He seems to be using a different sensor (optical instead of laser), lens, PCB, encoder and scroll wheel. Shape is different too. However the way the plastic grooves are on the mouse is similar.

Yes, the general design is very similar. Too similar to be coincidental, but that is not a problem, as copying shapes have been going on for years and brought improvements to already good shapes. This mouse has already a better shape (the rear) than the i-rocks mouse.

Been following this mouse for a long time, looking forward to reports from skylit, derp.

Will buy this anyway though.

Yeh should be good sensor wise as well. Bst seems to know how the cursor should behave so that offers a good background. I don't have too many worries about it at the moment. The only thing that irks me is that it's slated to be released in June T_T

It seems to me like this is bound to just plain be good no matter what.
Should there be minor firmware/software optimalization possibilities to get the mouse to work flawlessly I'm sure they would be done fast. The community which this mouse caters to is pretty relentless in their persuit of perfection, and the creator seems 100% dedicated to make a kick ass product.
