Terrible gaming mouse
23 November 2011
Summary: Do not buy if you have other wireless or cordless items. The mouse stops working because of interference and the battery life sucks. It can really get frustrating during the middle of a important situation and your battery dies/loses connection.
Summary: I'm now in the process of replacing my 2nd G7 mouse. I purchased my first about two years ago and it worked fine for the first 11 months when it developed the "double-click" problem. This is where a single left mouse click actually sends a double click to your computer. From reading online, it's a mechanical issue with the left click switch. Also from my research it appears this is a common problem with the G7s, though I've seen it happen in other Logitech mice as well.
Summary: The lazer went out within three weeks after purchasing the G7 but Logitech stood behind it and sent a G700 which is a much better wireless mouse as a replacement. WOOT! for Logitech and their customer support. I'm still a Logitech customer and fan.
Summary: Mouse worked great for 1 month. Then would freeze for 5-20 seconds. Logitec said it was magnetic or wifi disruption dropping the signal. I turned off my wifi and cordless phone with no luck. Please do your research on any tech site. Same problem abounds more times than not. If this issue was fixed I would give it 4 stars, now its an expensive paperweight.
Pros: Accurate in frag-fests, easy to use, comes with two batteries, and charger is integrated into the transmitter. Battery life indicator, sorta.
Cons: Huge mouse, obviously for big-hand guys. Girls, don't even think about it. No low-battery warning. Each charge lasts less than 10 hours, so if you were working all day, yours may die unexpectedly in the middle of an evening 25-man raid. Boo!
Summary: I have been using a Microsoft mouse, that used standard AA batteries for years. I got sick of having to hunt down new batteries 2-3 times a YEAR. I purchased this mouse because of its rechargeable battery. However, I am very disappointed with its battery life. I have had the mouse for few months now, the first month, I had to swap the battery ONCE A DAY, annoying, but not too bad, I would have assumed that a Li-Ion battery would last longer than AA batteries, I cant...
Summary: The first few months this mouse was great, but after a year, the tiny batteries have become annoyingly weak. I have another Logitech cordless I have owned for THREE YEARS that uses AA batteries, and I'm not joking, I have replaced those batteries ONCE. These little rechargeable cards with the G7 are now lasting maybe 2 hours at a time. I'm also having problems keeping the mouse connected.
Summary: Maybe my expectations are just too high, but I've come to expect a lot from Logitech products. They've been great in the past. Maybe it's just this particular product. I've read some complaints about the short battery life. Very true and disappointing considering it's made to be a gaming mouse. And for several months I've been having issues with bad buttons. Sometimes when I click on windows, they stay inactive.
