Summary: The mouse works great. Software and sensitivity are good. My hands are rather large; not huge, maybe slightly above average in size. This mouse is way too small for me, even with the adjustable plates this mouse is still too small. Extended use is uncomfortable. Even so, I've used this mouse for years and I'm pretty happy with it. I recently upgraded to a razer death adder and the functionality/sensitivity are equivalent but the larger form factor is wonderful.
Summary: I am constantly looking for the next great thing when it comes to gaming mice. I have used this unit for about 7 months and I finally gave up on it. I got this one for a really good price so I decided to give it a shot, but unfortunately it was just not for me. I must say there are things I absolutely love about this mouse.
Good Features But I Can't Agree with the Ergonomics

Summary: I should point out first that this is the G9, not the G9x. For some reason on Amazon, the G9x is cheaper than the G9, which baffles me. They are both the same except for the fact that the G9x has a higher DPI. If you really want this mouse, I'd go for the G9x, however, the G9 is 3200 DPI. I've never seen a need for have your DPI higher than that. I currently have a G500 with up to 5700and I never need more than 2000DPI.
Summary: This is a good mouse, well designed, however I find it to be either too sensitive or dull, with no in between, especially when playing shooters. The 3200 dpi is not usable and too sensitive, so it is technology that simply cannot be used. Personally, I prefer the G5 model. That said, this mouse is good, just not great in my opinion, and not what I expected, which was improvement.
Summary: Overall, this mouse is a big disappointment to me. Other people will talk about what's right with the G9, I'm just going to talk about what I don't like about this mouse. I play World of Warcraft as a resto druid, and need a mouse with a lot of buttons for mapping my various healing spells for use with Grid and Clique.
Summary: I have used and owned my fair share of mice over the years so I have a pretty good idea of what I do and don't like about them. Overall this is a decent mouse, dpi changing on the fly nicely placed addtional buttons, strong build all round and very accurate. However it has a few glaring flaws which keeps it from becoming the my main use mouse.
Summary: This mouse shares the same fate with most Logitech products in my experience. I am very picky when it comes to these higher-end peripherals, so please bear that in mind. Although, if you are spending this much on a mouse instead of a standard 2-button one that costs less than $15, perhaps you should expect as much as I do as well.
Summary: Pros - A lot of cool features like the weight control, on-the-mouse dpi control, and being able to change the LED to the color you want. And it looks awesome. Cons - It might not be best for people with big hands. I used to own a bigger mouse until I bought this one, and maybe i'm just having trouble getting used to it, but it's pretty uncomfortable.
Summary: I bought this mouse to use with my Adobe programs because I wanted ultra precision. I had the wireless Logitech MX Revolution but getting in close with Photoshop it tended to "skip". The G9 Laser Mouse is exactly what I needed it is smooth and glides. The sensitivity is the best I've had, when zooming in I set the dpi lower and when surfing the internet or gaming I set it all the way up.
