Logitech G9x Features

Interchangeable grips
The satin texture and fuller shape of the Wide Load grip add extra comfort. The DryGrip technology and compact shape of the Precision grip give you unmatched control.

Full-speed USB laser engine with range of 200 DPI to 3200 DPI
Advanced gaming-grade laser sensor enables up to five preset settings chosen from 200 DPI to 3200 DPI.

Onboard memory
You can program up to five profiles (keyboard macros, DPI settings, and LED colors), so you can play your way on other PCs (without software installation).

Weight-tuning system
Prefer a heavier or lighter mouse? You simply use the weight cartridge and up to 28 grams of metal weights to customize your G9x for just the right feel.

You can choose the color of your LEDs from a wide color spectrum to match your mouse to your PC, game, or style. LEDs show your mouse DPI and profile settings.

On-the-fly adjustable DPI
You get the right level of precision for whatever game you're playing-from pixel-precise targeting (200 DPI) to lightning-fast maneuvers (up to 5700 DPI).

Two scroll modes
Precise click-to-click scrolling is perfect for weapon selection when you're gaming. Frictionless, hyper-fast scrolling lets you fly through long Web pages.

Polytetrafluoroethylene feet
Precision-molded feet from durable, super-slick low friction polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) resin help the G9x glide effortlessly across almost any surface.

Optimized shape for gaming precision
With a flatter shape than other traditional, bean-shaped mice, the G9x is all about precision movement.

I can't believe one of the CONs isn't that. You have to flip the mouse upside down to change between freespin and click-spin. Is retarded comparing to even the performance MX mouse where it is a manual mechancial button on top of the mouse(think stick shift car). Previous mouse with free spin wheels are either auto(changes gear automatically depending on how fast you spin it) or can be programmed to switch to any other(think tiptronic car).

This is a personal con, in my opinion. As such, I'm not a fan of this particular feature, because I have to flip the mouse every time I game to engage the wheel clicks. This was actually mentioned in the article as a minor complaint.

# What about the lefty's???Glen M 2012-03-30 19:51
Even though I pretty much skimmed this review at no point that stuck out, ie when talking about hand grips or in the pro's and cons, did you mention whether the Logitech G9x Laser Gaming Mouse was ambidextrous or not! (So that is a big CON for me) so once again us lefty's are out in the cold, using second rate products!
