Great mouse, terrible battery and what's with the AWFUL new graphics?

Summary: Bought this to replace a previous G700 that got busted up when something fell on it. I love this mouse, it's highly programmable and very comfortable especially if you have larger hands. For my money it's probably the best mouse on the market, I bought my original one something like two years ago and after researching my options I just bought it again, there's nothing out there that's any better IMO. So why only 3 stars?
Summary: I had been using the Logitech G5 mouse for several years and loved it. After I wore the feet down and the scroll wheel started flaking out (I use the mouse at work), I decided to buy the G700s. I was kind of disappointed in the build quality (compared to the G5) to the point that I thought I received a black market knock-off. There's a good amount of visible wear during the short amount of time I've been using it.
Summary: It took me a while to get used to this mouse. Especially using my thumb with the four buttons so much when playing games. The battery will last 3 hours on intense gaming, since I play D3 hardcore, I cannot risk dying so I leave it plugged in, which works out pretty well for me since my PC sit on the desk. Wireless also goes out, even though its right next to the PC, but it may be time to refresh windows. That or there is a driver issue.
Summary: had this mouse for almost a year and the left click would randomly not work. the sensor is not in the center of mouse and instead placed near the upper section. this creates weird and unintended mouse movements. besides that, the mouse is great. and ps do not use this mouse for gaming.
Pros: good features, good software, lots of buttons, free-wheel
Cons: awkward sensor placement, left click worns out easily
Summary: the mouse works great, tracks well and is comfortable to use. I like to switch between my left and right hand though and left-handed use is very uncomfortable. I doubt ambidextrous use is really a major issue for most people though. what is a major issue is the battery life, or lack thereof. This mouse will not last more than one day on a charge. I ordered the mouse without looking into its battery life and was sorely disappointed in myself and my mouse.
With a guarded "Rec", this mouse has hidden value.

Summary: Over all, good, but the reservation(s) start with the weird stiff cable and the fall off without it. These are obviously caused by sapped out batteries. This thing drinks current, even when not in use. Best to turn it off when not using it, but that welding cable attached makes gaming/everyday use unwieldy. Seems as if our great mouse machinery maker Logitech, would of thought of a way to include a racing laser with economy voltage usage?
Summary: The mouse performs great...there was no noticeable difference at all between wired and wireless use and it's easy to swap between them. Imo this has a perfect amount of buttons for mapping controls compared to some others that are awkward to hit and so crammed up they are hard to find/use. This combined with on-board memory to store up to 5 profiles is great. The 4 thumb buttons aren't as tactile as I would like but they are easy to hit.
Pros: -Responsive wireless performance, -Comfortable, -Uses standard AA rechargeables and comes with Eneloop, -Good set of mappable buttons/profiles
Cons: -Horrible battery life, -Stiff, plastic cable, -Needs 2 USB connections (1 for wired, 1 for charging/wireless)
Summary: It's pretty ok I guess. But when i first got it in the mail the scroll wheel was very loose and would not stop scrolling on normal mode for 2 seconds, which is very bad. The hydrophobic coating which "prevents your palm from sticking" doesn't work at all. Although it is comfortable and good looking and has lots of grip, it still has a lot of issues when it first arrived.
Potentially fantastic gaming mouse marred by poor battery life and quirky mouse cursor issue

Summary: Pros: More programmable buttons than I can count (macros ahoy!). Fits very well in my large hands. One button press and you can change profiles instantly to conserve power (which you WILL have to do with this mouse - see Cons below). Included USB charge/data cable lets you keep on gaming even if you are running low on juice. Scroll-wheel can switch between "smooth glide" and "single click" by the press of a button.
