It didn´t even make me play any worse, my accuracies remained basically the same withing margin of error, is just that I notice a bit of "skipping" at 240hz.
The problem here is the same as always... I´ve been on countless debates on the internet/forums/twitter about this, and usually I end up being "attacked" by people that assure there isn´t a single difference between Logitech Wireless tech and Wired. Kind of the same thing that happened when I switched to 240hz and everyone was telling me it wasn´t noticeable compared to 144hz. Or same as when we jumped to 120hz. There will always be people that refuse the idea of "less input lag = better, no matter what". The truth is that I don´t have factual evidence, so people can attack me how much they want, they will always come on top. One thing I´m sure, I know what I feel and I know what the numbers say, and I don´t want to downgrade from 240hz and surely won´t be using wireless mice.
You are not imagining things.
People act like Logitech wireless mice are immune to wireless interference because of the marketing. It's not necessarily true.
For whatever reason, my GPW feels very off when running wireless. I can turn the mouse on and it feels flawless (just like wired) for the first 10 seconds or so. Then I can slowly feel that feeling go away. It's not like it is losing connection or skipping or anything like that, my aim just feels very inconsistent after a bit. In the past I did some tests of turning off wireless devices I have around (like my nearby MX master mouse, bluetooth devices, wireless router, blah blah blah). I could actually feel improvements but you know what? I'm not gonna spend every day turning off my 20 wireless devices so I can game in peace.
So my solution was to use a micro USB paracord with the GPW.
And then your typical Overclock.net/Reddit user will pipe up: "REEEEE, omg, you are using a wireless mouse in wired mode, that totally defeats the purpose, REEEEEEE".
Well guess what? The GPW is only available in wireless variety and only this mouse in their line up has this shape.
Compared to wireless, you can certainly feel the stock charging cable that they include with the mouse weighing it down. But I don't feel any weight difference using a micro USB paracord compared to wireless... so win/win for me. Don't have to worry about wireless interference randomly throwing me off + no additional weighing down of the mouse.
