Joe’s Pick: Logitech G700 Gaming Mouse

Posted 20 Aug 2012 in Gear Review

Looking for a great gaming mouse? Then look no further.

I’ve used Logitech gaming mice for a long time. They are very durable. In fact, before I got my G700, I had a G400 which I gamed with for at least 5 years straight. I ended up holding on to it as a backup mouse in case someone comes over and forgets theirs. Logitech knows gaming; they have been making gaming peripherals for a long time now, and they seem to have incorporated many things gamers want into their products.

I bought the G700 because I was looking for a new mouse with a lot of buttons that I could use for both working and gaming. The mouse features on board memory that stores up to 5 profiles. I have 3 profiles for gaming and 1 for work which I used to bind hot-keys in Photoshop and Dreamweaver. With 13 programmable buttons, this mouse increases my productivity at work and quickens my response time in game. The mouse is rechargeable. It comes with a long USB charging cable that can be plugged in at any time without disrupting game play. As soon as you see the low battery indicator flashing, you can plug in the cable and continue playing. Once you see its fully charged, you can pull the plug and continue killing zombies without interruption. The mouse wheel has a button which can be used to switch between friction or non friction modes. I like this because in DayZ the mouse wheel is used a lot to select between menu options. Turning on the friction allows you to not only see the menu options on the screen, but you can feel when you move from one option to the next. In other games or when I’m working I like to turn off the friction which lets the wheel roll freely. This mouse also allows to make sensitivity adjustments on the fly. If you run across a sub-machine gun or assault rifle while scavenging in Cherno you can speed up or slow down the sensitivity depending on how you like to use each type of firearm.

If you don’t believe me, take a look at the over 500 5egg/star reviews on both Newegg and Amazon.
