Question

Posted

Hi there,

My current Microsoft Sidewinder X8 is on it's way out from old age and I'm looking at replacing it, ideally something wireless, big and chunky (My hands are big and chunky for strangling Badgers). Also some buttons for changing buttons for the sensitivity on the fly would be very handy (My sidewinder has 3 setting buttons on top)

I used to do mouse reviews for a website and I can safely say that the best mouse I have ever used when I consider everything together is the Logitech G9/G9x. It might not look like much, but even dismissing the huge list of features, I'll let you know we still have one in heavy daily use that is now 5 1/2 yrs old. When the time came, I picked up a G9x for a new PC without hesitation. It's laser, comes with different hand grips, comes with interchangeable weights, it has dpi settings you can change on the fly, uses multicolored LEDs you can program to your liking, has profile programmability, uses a braided cable which is the best of both worlds (never runs out of power and also doesn't have friction/drag) and it even lets you choose from a smooth-scrolling mousewheel to one with a click with the push of a button.

It's truly a sick gaming mouse that has lasted me longer than any other that I have ever reviewed.

I have an original G9 that I pre order which is still going strong, but I prefered the G500 to it. But the OP said he wanted wireless so I would suggest the G700. Stay away from razer products, imo. Over priced and very cheaply made.

I've got an original mamba and it's fantastic.

That said I have been replacing it with Corsair gear over time.

The funny thing is I would have said don't touch the Logitech stuff >.<

That's the original G9. The only difference between that one and the G9x is that the G9x has a higher dpi sensor. At least that's what I remember the difference being. It may have a few slight cosmetic changes but other than that they are pretty much identical.

I would suggest the Logitech G700, you could use it wired or wireless I believe, I've had my G5 for god only knows how long now, I remember buying it new for my old XP machine, then when I built this one that runs 7, I kept the mouse, 1 because I like it and 2 because I ran out of money for a new mouse at the time lol, now I just can't be bothered to replace it unless it breaks but like I said, it's very old and still going strong, no reason why the G700 shouldn't

Might as well get a G9x, which is exactly the same as the G9 only with an updated laser engine.

I love my G9x
Love cannot be understated here.
...just avoid the Mamba..eats batterie life like candy, not that great feeling of a mouse, too pricey for what it is and its really annoying to have to charge it on the dock while you want to use your computer..i always kept it hooked up directly to wired, defeating the purpose.

if you want a large mouse, go with a Logitech offering or the CM Storm options =)

Razer quality has a bad rep, but they do make amazing mice with awesome clicking and awesome sensors

Yep, I keep mentioning how unimpressive the G9 and G9x look, but trust us, they are fantastic and last for years.

Just a general tip. Make sure any mouse you choose is as light as possible. RSI and Carpal tunnel will stay away.

I used to have the Razor naga for gaming, until I moved to Win8, and their software gave me issue. Moved to Logitech G600, and never look back.

A have always been a massive Logitech fan, i have had a MX-510, MX-518 (two of these) and a G500

HOWEVER, i recently switched to a Razer Deathadder and it is so comfortable its brilliant, i also like the anti slip coating they put on it. It looks the part to!

I had a Razer mouse, it lasted less than a year, the keyboard lasted just over 2 years. I am done with Razer hardware. The only Razer product I will get is that second generation Destructor mousepad they've just come out with.

I have a Logitech G9 and yes its a decent mouse, the G9 was sent to me as a replacement for the G7 which was wireless but also had a design fault that the battery's only lasted a few hours in the end, sometimes only an hour after a full charge so i opted for a nice wired one for replacement as i didnt want that happening again plus being able to weight is nice as i like a heavy mouse.

I only have a few issues...
1. I im unable to reach the "forward" button when i hold the mouse and play games (forward thumb button back one is fine)
2. Wire can sometimes be annoying but 95% of the time its fine and does not bother me.
3. Its a little lighter than the G7 which had perfect weight for me, but then it did have that battery

Pros:
You can set up custom profiles i think it stores three, i dont know as ive not touched them in years plus i had two that were the same as i sometimes switched during heavy game play. Even though its not as heavy as the G7 its still a decent good weight and as others have said will last for years, ive basically ahd it since the release date (few months after it was released if im honest). I even let my mate use it and he's a Razor fan and he said it was decent but he liked the Mamba so got that. Oh yes the wheel also has two settings super fast (good for long documents) and a slow click. Never liked the razor if im honest think they are over priced and yes i know im prob spelling it wrong im too lazy to check and correct though.
