A friend of mine asked me a couple of weeks ago whether the Logitech G700 will make a good wireless gaming mouse. I currently own one of these and I’ve used it for every single thing I do on my PC. I game on it and I work using it as well. So far, its performance has been fantastic. Also, it’s wireless to boot so that helps with my paranoia of having unnecessary clutter on my desk. I didn’t really know about the specifications of this particular mouse myself and I only bought it upon the recommendation of another friend of mine years ago. It’s still working well until today.
I went on and checked its specifications. Apparently, it has a DPI of 5700 which is really high for a gaming mouse which has been out in the market since perhaps 2-3 years ago. As I was unaware of what the DPI really was, I guess my mouse’s DPI sensitivity had been left at default, which is approximately 1600. The only thing I could advise my friend on was with regard to the extra buttons that this wireless gaming mouse has. With 10 fully programmable buttons, the G700 wireless gaming mouse is enough for even the most complex MMORPGs out there. You’ll practically never run out of keys or buttons to bind your shortcuts to when you’re using this awesome gaming mouse (more can be found at http://www.gaminggearlab.com/choosing-the-best-wireless-gaming-mouse/). Its sensor type is, to my surprise, laser as opposed to optical. It doesn’t have much practical use to it though, seeing as how I’m always using a mousepad. The benefits of a laser sensor, just in case you don’t already know, are noticeable only when you’re using it as a portable mouse and you don’t have a mousepad with you. You’ll still be able to use the G700 on various surfaces including glass. Mice that are built with optical sensors will not be able to function on this kind of surfaces.
