This page is a list of Logitech's gaming mouses, and some thoughts.
I never owned any Logitech mouses. No particular reason, just that i've always been happy with Microsoft's keyboard and mouse. Here's current available gaming mouses they offer.
This is top-of-the-line model. Features:
This one is comparable to Microsoft SideWinder X8 mouse. I consider the G700 better, because: • 6 more programable buttons. • On-board memory. • Scroll wheel can be set to notched or smooth.
G9X is upgraded version of G9. The only difference between G9 and G9X is they have DPI of 3200 vs 5000. See: What's Mouse DPI? Does Mouse DPI Matter in Gaming?.
This is upgraded from MX518.
The features list aboved are only ones i personally consider important. Here's some features that i don't care about.
Here's some qualities of mouse i consider important, for gaming or for programing:
• Laser vs Optical. In general, laser lets you use mouse on more surfaces, such as glass, glossy magazine, etc. If you always use a mouse pad, then it doesn't really matter.
• Wired vs wireless. Wireless is convenient, but with wired mouse you don't have to worry about battery or charging. Many ages ago, wireless mouse may have tracking problems, but usually not today.
• Number of programable buttons. This is very important, for gaming or normal use. For example, in normal use, more buttons lets you switch tabs, switch windows, close tab/window, quickly. You don't have to constantly switch between keyboard and mouse.
• Shape and size of mouse. This is very important but often forgotten. If you are right-handed, it's better to have buttons that are positioned for the right thumb. If you are really left-handed, you might shop for a dedicated left-handed mouse with dedicated shape. ⁖ Razer DeadAdder Mouse Left Hand Edition.
I always use 2 mouses. For the left hand, i currently use a symmetric-shaped one the Microsoft SideWinder X3. But if it is the only mous i use, i definitely would buy a dedicated left-handed mouse instead of a symmetric shaped one. The symmetric G300 looks very nice. The lights on the mouse with different colors is a cool add-on!
There's also “Logitech Optical Gaming Mouse G400” amazon that i didn't cover. It's rather ugly.
