Summary: For the price I paid, I'm very satisfied with this mouse. It does feel pretty lightweight, but I wouldn't say it feels cheap. I will update this review if I have any problems with it. This is a killer budget mouse for any gamer. The inclusion of side buttons would make this mouse even better, although I know Logitech and other peripheral manufacturers offer mice with side buttons for comparable prices; however if you want 2500 DPI and an on-the-fly DPI switch, this mouse...
Pros: I just bought this mouse less than a week ago. So far, I really like it. I bought it at a local retailer for $30, which is $10 less than the listed price on Newegg at the time of this review. The tracking is flawless on my mouse pad, clear glass desk, carpet, and even on my pantleg, no lag, delay or tracking issues. The DPI-switch button located behind the scroll wheel is useful, however not customizable as far as I can tell. For the price, the performance of this mou...
Cons: There are no back/forward buttons, nor is there a side-scroll function on the scroll wheel, though I don't really care about that. There are only the basic left, right and middle click options. I typically look for more than three buttons on any mouse that calls itself a "gaming" mouse. Also, the cord feels somewhat flimsy; I wouldn't use this mouse with a laptop or in any situation where you might be frequently unplugging it and coiling/uncoiling the cable. One last ...
Summary: Yes I do spam click a lot but that's no excuse for how cheaply mice are being made these days. I understand now that I'll have to pay more than twice what I did here for a decent mouse. The problem is finding one that's wired & is at least 1,000 DPI.
Pros: For the price it seemed like a really good deal. Unfortunately that's the only good I can say.
Cons: 3 months later it's left clicker started missing & now 10 months later it misses 50% of the time. The only way to somewhat remedy this is to click hard & dead center of the button. My old Logitech M-SBF96 lasted 3 flawless years & cost a third what this one did.
Pros: Its been a great mouse for the last 7 months. The tracking is absolutely perfect and the dpi switch is handy. Never had any problem with this mouse ever.
Cons: Until now. Sure the left button is starting to miss-fire but thats to be expected from a heavily used mouse sooner or later. I'm not going to deduct an egg for that. It has served me very well but it's time to move on and put it out to pasture. Rest easy old friend.
Summary: Picked this mouse up at a local retailer for about $35 mostly because it was cheap, a Logitech, and it said "Gaming Mouse" on the packaging. I needed something quick and dirty that would get the job done for a few weeks until I could do some research and order another, hopefully better mouse. I expected the G100s to be better than your run-of-the-mill brandless optical mouse, but what I didn't expect is just how much I would actually enjoy using it over other mice.
Pros: - Lightweight - Relatively low cost for the value - Simple and straightforward - FLAWLESS optical sensor - Standard Logitech construction - High durability Omron micro mechanical switches - Reasonable DPI range (you do NOT need much more than 2000-3000 DPI even if you're a really high sensitivity user) - Zero complaints or issues with Logitech's software
Cons: - Lacks an additional thumb button (see other thoughts) - Scroll wheel registers a movement too early (before it actually clicks into place) once in a blue moon, but is fine 99.9% of the time - Some may not be a fan of the graphics on the top of the mouse - I like the simplistic construction, but to some it may seem barebones
Summary: After 11 months of gaming the left click started malfunctioning. I don't put this as a con coz I believe it is a reasonable mileage, and for the time it worked it served me well. I am planning to buy another one.
Pros: Light. I know it's a con for some people, but for me it is the light weight I wanted. I bought this mouse to play battlefield 3. The 10 dollar M100 served me well, only that I wanted to switch sensitivity on the go. during infantry combat/inside a tank I prefer low sensitivity but in a AA I want high sensitivity. The dpi switch of g100s does the job so Im happy with it. It's slightly heavier than my cheap m100 but with the little extra weight it brings stability also.
Cons: Cord is stiff, but as a low end gaming mouse u can't expect much. Price. I bought this when I was in America, when I came back to Asia I found the shops here sell it cheaper($28 in the shops, $20 online). America has the cheapest price for most electronics, not this one.
Summary: I've had a few of the Logitech mice exhibit the left click switch failure. I had purchased this one in the hopes they used better switches in their more expensive mice (other companies do this with keyboards). I typically use the wireless mice that can be found for half the price of this one. Now I typically get 4-5 months of use out of a Logitech product, but I do use them 20 hours a day.
Pros: When it worked the mouse was fairly decent. It was a corded and comfortable to use.
Cons: Cord was a bit stiff. The left button hung open after about 5 months of use. When this happened I had to leave the mouse in my app and unplug it, then quickly unpackage a replacement I happened to have lying around. For the price I would expect it to last as long as the mice that are half the price. This mouse was not as precise in Photoshop as some of the cheaper laser mice I've used. Overall I was not impressed with the quality. The plastic finish Logitech's been us...
Summary: I am a big man, but have tiny hands. I love my old standby, a Logitech MX 518, but it is a wee bit too big for my tiny hand. Even with its ambidextrous design, the 100s is a much better fit for me.
Pros: Superb tracking. DPI button switches from three dpi settings. This can be configured in Logitech Gaming Software to better suit your individual needs.
