Excerpt: First off, you can tell the radical difference in looks between most 'bean' shaped mice. Many people criticize the looks of it but I like it; the jagged, futuristic look is quite my style. It is also much smaller than most gaming mice, which is a plus for me, but for those who palm their mice or have large hands, it would be quite a hinderance.
Excerpt: Logitech's G9 mouse is one of the best gaming mice on the market. Its build quality is solid, and is very responsive. Its high resolution laser can be configured to be ultra sensitive for users who like a fast moving cursor, or slower for graphic artists who want more control. It comes with two grips - one smoother/rounder for general use, and a smaller/rougher designed for control (gaming). The G9 also comes with a set of weights to help users with discerning taste.
Excerpt: When I purchased this mouse I made the mistake of not first going to best buy and feeling the ergonomic aspects to it, or lack of. This mouse was designed around the "claw" gaming style where you use your fingertips instead of palm to own it up in game. It takes a while to get used to the mouse, but it works. You can order additional grips from logitech.
Excerpt: As I first started using this mouse I was really amazed by what an improvement the hyper-scrolling wheel makes. But as I used it further, the switch on the bottom almost negated the utility of this feature. Similarly the stored profiles are very useful for changing your particular assignment of buttons and other mouse behaviors, but the button is inconveniently placed underneath, though this is less of an issue as profile changes are not going to be that frequent.
