    It looks nice, but i hope it feels nice in your hand aswell. Since it looks a bit "cyborgish".

    My current G500 is nearly 5 years old and still works/looks brand new, apart from minor wear on the feet. (using a Razer Sphex mouse pad)

    Ever since they merged SetPoint with the Keyboard Profiler it only gotten better.

    I don't see how anyone could make it better. It works brilliant.

    At 12,000DPI I doubt it, which means I'll never own one.

    Laser isn't worth it. Single piece of hair on the sensor throws the mouse into a crazy frenzy. The Kone XTD is the only laser mouse I enjoyed using but it still isn't worth it.

    I've been using a G400s for a few months now, comfy and performs well.

    well the software that came with my deathadder is much better.

    logitech software gives so many various results (sensitivity wise) in many games its ridiculous. unfortunately i still need to have it installed for my g15. also there are bugs in logitech software which never got fixed. F.E.A.R. with the logitech software installed causes input problems for instance.

    These "Borg" mice look cool but I bet they are a bear to keep clean. I wish they would stop making them with as many angles as possible just for looks. "Form and function" should be their mantra.

    I really like the newer software as well. I really love being able to drag commands back and forth between the mouse and keyboard In Bioshock Infinite I used that to set a macro key on my G13 to act as the right mouse click so that I could bind the ADS key to the right click like a proper shooter.

    I reported a problem I ran into with their software on the logitech forum and saw that they fixed it in the very next set of release notes.

    I've never had this happen in the 5+ years I've used them.

    I'll never use anything but laser ever again.

    For me G400 with ceramic feet (from other mouse) is simply perfect, pixel precise, no acceleration, and I have tried several laser mouse and are no match for G400 optical sensor. and I don't use any software just a registry tweak.

    Maybe this laser sensor makes what they have been promising for almost 10 years.

    All laser mice are pretty bad due to their inherent acceleration. There's only a handfull of mice even worth owning (perfect tracking / no acceleration) if you're a gamer.

    All of these complains about laser mice, but they have been flawless for me, no tracking issues ever.

    I've always used Logitech Gaming mice, never had a reason to switch. I always throw the polling rate to 1000 in the gaming software and it's smooth as butter.

    I'm on a G9x until this goes on sale.

    There is issues with acceleration in laser mice, you just dont notice it. For someone like me, who went from MX518 to G500, I found that mouse nearly unusable, so I bought a G400 to replace the G500.

    Good luck living with perfect tracking that requires you to use a proper non-reflective opaque surface that is regularly cleaned for your optical mouse. That optical mouse which only has one proper dpi set up that results is flawless movement, which is undoubtedly too god damn low for anyone with limited desk space or anyone with larger resolution screens. I'm sure your perfect tracking will be untouched by properly programed games that require day 1 patches due to bugs and server instability.

    I'll keep to my surface indiscriminate laser mouse with logitech's hyperwheel(best damn thing for surfing the web). A mouse that i can bump up to 3200dpi for my 4k monitor. Acceleration is only bad if it's pure random if it's predictable acceleration people can very much live with that. How the hell do you think people play games on console. Laser mice acceleration is predictable. Now it isn't perfectly predictable but it's close enough for all but the most obsessed people who drop two grand on a computer only to play everything on the lowest setting.

    If you tried Razer Synapse, you'd be glorifying Logitech, building altars for them and naming children after their products.

    It hangs the cursor for my Mamba so often, that I almost smashed the **** out of it. Killing Synapse app helps a lot, but still there's a chance it'll hang, and would require unplugging and plugging again.

    Just because Synapse is more **** doesn't mean that Logitech's isn't also ****.

    Lots of valid points, and lots of strawman arguments too. Laser mice are claimed to have random acceleration, not predictable. I'm on a laser mouse now and I'm fine, but next mouse will be the G400s.
