Summary: I loved this mouse. I have no complaints about it except for one. The cord. I used this mouse an average of 3 hours a day over 7 months. At first the outer cloth shell of the cord started to fray in a few spots but it didnt bother me because it worked like a champ. Then one day I went to use it and it stopped working. I started to look over the mouse and realized that where the cord goes into the inside of mouse was hanging out.
Summary: I really wanted to like this mouse. I've used the G7 for 3 years now and I absolutely love it. Unfortunately my G7 began to interpret single clicks as double clicks, and I was back in the market for a mouse. I chose to go with the G9 this time because of its amazing "on paper" specs, as well as the glowing reviews on various sites, which really had me waiting at the bottom of the driveway for the package to show up :) Unfortunately, no cigar.
Summary: Pros - Sensitive - Custom weights - Custom LED colors - Extra grips Cons - Middle-mouse clicking (pressing down, not scrolling) is INCREDIBLY stiff. It's difficult to open/close browser tabs, or fly-scroll on webpages, etc. A near deal-breaker just right there. - For me, personally, the mouse is too heavy for precision gaming to begin with. Using the weights would make it worse. - It's labeled as a 9-button mouse, which is ridiculous and highly disappointing.
Summary: A few things I wasn't expecting persuaded me to return this mouse and go back to the best mouse ever: the MX Revolution. 1) The hyperfast scroll wheel DOES NOT include smart-shifting technology. In order to change between freewheeling and clicking, you must turn the mouse over and engage a switch. In my opinion, this defeats the entire purpose of the expensive wheel. 2) The onboard memory does NOT retain ALL of your settings on all computers.
Summary: The Bad: It's too small for medium to large hands, unless you're a claw-gripper. The smooth default grip is nearly useless unless you are a child or have small hands --- it's too small to palm, and too slippery and "velvety" to claw. So you'd spend more time trying to hold onto the mouse than actually working or playing. Sadly, the smaller interchangeable grip is the grip of choice if you're a palm-gripper, when it was designed for claw-grippers.
Great for palm grip users, not so great for claw grip users

Summary: If you are a claw grip user like me, which means you hold and move your mouse with your fingers without moving your arm, then this mouse might not be for you. Claw users love the precision and speed that we can move the mouse in games versus the whole-arm movement of palm users. If I need extra pixel by pixel precision such as Photoshop work, then as a claw user I can place my thumb and right 2 fingers on the mouse pad and slowly guide the mouse around.
Summary: I bought the G9 about 4 months ago, started playing around with it, it was absolutely brilliant, especially the on-the-fly dpi switching and the overall feel of it. But as time passed, the negatives started creeping in unnoticingly. First of all, and while this may not be an issue for some, it certainly was for me, even when I had fine-tuned it to exactly how I play my games (Halo Custom Edition specifically; that's what I spend most of my time on), my older, and much...
Pros: Brilliant mouse...
Cons: ...until the laser carks it, which happens VERY quickly.
Summary: // les + la précision est parfaite, elle glisse très bien. Un régal dans les jeux. // les - le prix les 2 coques, le débrayage du clic milieu, la sensibilité ajustable à la volée et les poids de lestages sont useless. je trouve l'ergonomie plutot moyenne comparé a mon ancienne mx500. le gros défaut => le clic du milieu est très dur et "saillant".
