Conclusion: The Logitech G700 presently sells for $71.76 at Amazon , and $89.99 at Newegg . At the end of the day, I’m still undecided. To me, that means I’m not putting money down for the privilege of programmable buttons and a wireless interface – especially when there are so many products available for $100.
Pros: Professional enough to use in any environment, Large number of features that work well, Good looking, well built
Cons: Comfort may vary per user, Average weight for a wireless mouse, but there are lighter ones…, Unfortunate marketing label
Excerpt: Before two months ago, I had never seriously gamed on a computer. However, I’ve been a console junkie my entire life and remain devoted to those great ergonomic controllers and selection of games. Recently, a friend of mine introduced me to a game that’s all the rage right now, League of Legends.
Pros: Great design, useful features for gaming.
Cons: SetPoint software is only PC compatible, some users may shy away from the $99 price point.
Summary: At E3, the third and final product that I viewed was the new high end gaming mouse, the Logitech G700. Billed as a more of an MMO mouse, the G700 Wireless Gaming Mouse packs a ton of features in a small package. Let’s start with the shape.
Conclusion: Wireless, rechargeable gaming mice like the G700 never come cheap, and for the price premium we also expected premium quality. And we got it. The mouse is very well put together and all the buttons are nicely shaped and have a good touch to them.
Pros: Plenty of keys for everyone, Smooth wheel with two modes, Nice shape, but...
Cons: ...a bit too tight space for a thumb, Thick charging cable
Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 and Gaming Keyboard G510 Review
28 September 2010
Excerpt: Last month they announced updates to the popular G-series PC gaming peripheral line with the introduction of the Gaming Keyboard G510, Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 and Wireless Gaming Headset G930.
Summary: With 13 buttons, the highly-programmable wireless mouse can also work over a USB cable should there be too much interference in the area (especially at a LAN party). But it is plagued by battery life & weight.
Conclusion: Despite hoping for something special, we came away from our time with the G700 supremely disappointed. When connected via its data and charging cable the G700 performed very well and did a fine job of fragging our opposition in comfort and style.
