A bummer. Some good elements sunk by slipshod design/engineering.
16 November 2014
Summary: I dislike writing bad reviews, but this product just seemed like a good example of slipshod design, especially for the price. BUTTONS: I honestly hated the wheel. I have tried a couple of the G-series mouses that have the hyperscroll toggle. On those that have it, the "stepped" setting has always rattled, felt really loose/cheap. It kind of feels like a wheel that has had the resistance worn out of it.
Great for palm grippers, not so much for anyone else.

Summary: If you have big, or simply above average sized hands, and are used to lightweight, low arch mice, and you claw grip, transitioning to this mouse will be a pain. This mouse is best suited for palm grippers. it is IMPOSSIBLE to comfortably claw grip with this mouse. I don't have huge hands, though mine are on the bigger side. In fact, this mouse very much reminds me of the Logitech Performance MX mouse which I LOVE and I know many many other people love as well.
Summary: PROS *absolutely LOVE the way the mouse feels. by far my favorite mouse in terms of shape, size, and weight *good amount of macro buttons and making macros on the logitech software is the most customizable i've used. *comes with rechargeable battery and extension cord for wireless sensor CONS *logitech software is complete TRASH. its unstable and needs constant refreshing. only way to do it is to terminate the process and restart logitech gaming software.
Summary: The g700s has a fundamental design flaw with the 8.4 programming that makes the hyperscroll function completely useless. It scrolls entirely on its own with no outside stimuli. Basically it is WAY too sensitive. Logitech knows about this problem and to date has still not found a solution. Neither the windows mouse settings nor the Logitech program will make this problem even remotely better.
Summary: This replacement works perfectly well and if your receiver is broken, you do not really have a choice. So why the 2 star rating? Well I had my G700 for about 1,5 years when it stopped working and I found a post in an online forum saying that the receiver is badly build and if you rip the black plastic of and put some paper underneath the USB connectors and the Metal cap, it will start working again. And so I did.
Summary: I'm using a MacBookPro and had success with a prior Logitech mouse, but was interested in an upgrade with more buttons. The gaming software works OK, and it does allow good customization. However, the mouse was never able to track well during slow, small movements. If writing a document and need to move up a line, moving the mouse slowly, the cursor on the screen would NOT change - it would just sit there like I wasn't doing anything.
Summary: the mouse is great, i bought it for gaming and the first game of counter strike source i played i went something like 30-4, BUT and its a very big but...the wireless mode works likes its supposed to but sometimes the big pings itself meaning if i click the left mouse button once it thinks i clicked like like 6 times..as well as the custom profiles i set up no longer work went the mouse is plugged in and charging..
Summary: First of all I would like to say that overall I enjoy using this mouse and it feels nice in my hand. The mouse seems to be good quality and it's comfortable to use. Looks don't matter to me, but it does look nice. Despite all the nice things I just said I wouldn't buy this mouse again. When I said it's good quality I meant overall good quality but there is one major flaw that for me is inexcusable, the mouse wheel!
Summary: This is a very ergonomic mouse but I've had two problems with it. 1) The scroll wheel is defectively. It randomly activates during gaming and web browsing. I've lost more than one match due to my weapons unwantedly changing when the mouse decides to be possessed. This even effects web broswing -- when I load into a new page, the mouse makes the page scroll up and down erratically. I was not able to write this review without this problem appearing three times.
Summary: Over the years, I've grown used to smaller, less bulky mice, using my thumb, ring, and little fingertips for a claw grip. This is definitely not one of them. The design is ergonomic and comfortable, but it's just too big; when my fingers rest on the mouse buttons, my palm is not even touching the mousepad, as there's just too much mouse for it to get around, and I can't use it as an anchor like I usually do.
