Logitech G700 Conclusion
The Logitech G700 presently sells for $71.76 at Amazon, and $89.99 at Newegg. At the end of the day, I’m still undecided. To me, that means I’m not putting money down for the privilege of programmable buttons and a wireless interface – especially when there are so many products available for $100. It almost pains me to say it, because I really want to like the Logitech G700.
This wireless mouse is well built (I still don’t like the wiggle in the scroll wheel though…), aesthetically pleasing, and a solid performer. Not once did it falter or hiccup during my testing. The software is solid as well, but it could stand to get dressed up a bit.
I think most of my complaints regarding comfort would be fixed if this mouse were much lighter. Widen that thumb grip a little bit and make it a bit more “rubbery,” and I’d find more reasons to hang onto it (ha!). I think what I’m trying to say is this: I didn’t like it, but I have very specific requirements for a mouse. There was nothing really horrible about the experience, and it IS a great product. If one of the features checks a box for you that you can’t get elsewhere (the extra buttons, micro-gear scroll wheel, horizontal scrolling, wireless with up to 1000Hz polling), you really can’t go wrong.
The biggest fault I have with this product, in all honesty, is that they placed a “Gaming” label on it. Not that it doesn’t deserve it, but I feel like this is much more of a fully featured productivity or work mouse, rather than one you’d want to use for long sessions of Battlefield or Action RPGs like Torchlight or Diablo. If you’re looking to spend $100 to improve your *gaming* experience, I feel like you could do better with different products.
+ Professional enough to use in any environment
- Comfort may vary per user
Final Score: 8.1 out of 10.
