    Why wouldn't people just buy the G403? It's lighter, cheaper, and comes with a proven wireless tech. Seems like a no brainer to me. 134g is also way too much for fps games.

    While I like Roccat mouses, I see compromise... Cable.
    If they gave 2nd Li-Ion battery and USB charger, then one would not need to compromise with cable once internal battery gets drained.

    It's a very comfortable mouse and it has a ton of buttons that don't get in the way. I've been using the wired version of this for over a year and don't regret shelving my old Logitech at all. To me this has the same feel as the old G500/MX518 just with a ton of extra programmable buttons.

    I like roccat mice ( despite an horrible experience with one of them keyboard )

    But they are not affraid of qualify each spec with superlative.. ( first device, only device etc.. ) problem each of thoses spec seems the same of the 900 ( Same sensor from Pixart, surely omicron clic.. ( but lower battery charge time and surely largely more weight than the 900)

    Marketing is marketing, but well.

    I will be curious to see how this mice stand against the G900.

    I must admit this is the first time I see a mouse that might be better than my G602, but is it better? It has a slightly different button lay-out, so I'd need to test this Roccat for a week or so before I could decide.

    neeeeeeeeeeever mind, the G602 is half the price :infinity:

    Nice competitor for Logitech G700s ($60). 14 buttons, finally, same amount as on XInput controllers. AWSD - works as a thumb for movement, so Mouse/Keyboard combo is getting very close to cover same functionality as XInput controllers, and you can keep your Hands on Keyboard and Mouse (HOKAM) all the time when playing most games, which is very good.

    Well I just ordered one. Nothing wrong with my wired version but thought I'd give wireless another try since the wireless tech has improved over the years.
    The wired version is by far the best mouse I have owned since the MX518.
