This week, MMORPG.com Hardware writer, Jeremy Star takes a look at the latest mouse offering from Logitech with the G9 mouse. He liked it, read on to find out why!

This week we're going to be taking a look at the newest mouse offering from PC peripheral giant Logitech, the G9 laser mouse.

The Hardware – Look ma, another G!

The G9 is a corded USB laser mouse with a 3200dpi. It features interchangeable grips, a custom weight tuning system, onboard memory, adjustable sensitivity, customizable LED colors, Polytetrafluoroethylene feet, and a MicroGear™ precision scroll wheel. Like all of G family of mice – the corded ones, anyway – the cord is a heavy duty braided one.

Read the whole thing here.

Sounds great. I've been using the G5 for about 2 years now I think and it's still a solid mouse. I'll probably always stick to the G series from this one on.

Im sorry, i cant help it - Im socially retarded.

This mouse is AWFUL, 9/10... you must be on commission.

I'd give it 5/10 tops...

The mouse is based on the concept of it being fully customizable and have disregarded basic concepts such as comfort and functionality.

Yes you can make it bigger, but it just isn't comfortable when using the extremes so you go for the intermediate size.

The button edges are very pronounced so it takes effort to navigate your fingers to different buttons.

There is no where to comfortable rest your pinky, so its kinda left hanging or scraping along the mouse mat....

Yes you can customize the LED colour... but there is only a very small section of LED on it which is 100% hidden by your hand when you are actually using the mouse. There is no LED trimmings that remain visible.

Plus they have this fancy drawer for the weights to be placed in. If you do not get them to go in perfectly flat, you can't get the drawer back open. This is what happened to me within minutes of it being delivered and i had to force it open, leaving scratches on my new £100 mouse.

 

 

I'm still on the lookout for a new mouse, but £100 out of pocket. Save your money for a nice keyboard instead.

it's just a mouse. 

you need a REALLY big ego to have a mouse like this.

From all the things I''ve lost I miss my mind the most.

10/01/07 4:17:59 PM#8

Sorry but this is not top of the game as the reviewer suggests and its not really confortable.

Oh and Razer Lachesis had 4000 dpi laser engine for a while now.

Is the Lachesis being sold?

Also you say it's expensive, but never mention how much it is.

I would never buy that mouse simply because it's ugly as hell, its a friggin brick and looks like a POS.

 

Yes, I am a Razer owner and I am horribly biased as well.

The only time you run out of chances is when you stop taking them.

Mice are very personal, everyones hands are different, different tastes too. Not everyone has long finger nails either.

I've seen this mouse sold in N.America for $85 or about 42 pounds (uk) If the reader above paid $200 for this mouse then you deserve to be shot!

I kinda like the retro look, I know in my local store I can go in and spend 20 minutes with the mouse for inital feelings, and i'll be doing that right before next pay day =)

Too weird to live, and too rare to die

10/01/07 8:02:42 PM#11

It seems odd to me to review such a high-end mouse intended for twitch gaming on an MMORPG site - the review was fine and all, but the applicability to this fan-base is iffy.

I have used lowly, old-school, first-generation optical mice with just two buttons and no customization, and high-end laser mice with tuning systems and profiles and excellent DPI and all, and honestly cannot claim a performance benefit when playing WoW, LotRO, or EverQuest II.

So, I am sure for hardcore FPS people this mouse and ones like it are a blessing, but I do not think someone who pretty much strictly plays MMOGs can justify this purchase in terms of game improvements. If I bought it I would only do it to show off and feed my desire to have the best hardware, since clicking a massive on-screen target and then pressing button macros to attack does not require precision.

I tend to not include prices in the reviews, since they are so fluid. At the time I wrote the review, the price was pretty much a solid $99 US everywhere, but now that it has been published, you can find it cheaper. (Albeit still more than you would expect to pay for a mouse.)

"Twitch" gaming applies to MMORPGs as well. Anybody who PVPs in WoW can attest to that. Spinning and running in circles so that the rogue can't backstab you is much easier with a good gaming mouse.

Well, I used to PvP in WoW and cannot attest to that, so clearly not "anybody" can.

I use an MS wireless (oh no, wireless!) laser 5000 series mouse and can spin in circles just fine, and as one might guess, this is not even close to a gaming mouse - not corded, has no fancy features, is meant for home/office use. Spinning is a gross movement, not a refined movement. A refined movement is targeting the head of someone at 100 yards with a gun in an FPS, as you only have a very few pixels to aim at and need precision. A gross movement is holding down a button and twirling around, something any mouse made since we ditched those balls can do.

Anyway, I am sure these uber mice are a delight to use, at least in titles they are designed for, but I honestly think we are deluding ourselves when we start making performance claims in a game like WoW. But that is just me. If people enjoy these mice and feel it helps them out in MMORPGs, all the power to them, I simply remain unconvinced.

I agree with this, perhaps we can hope for a game that will allow mice like this to be at home in some type of mmo game.

Oops - looks like I'm an internet dog who somehow learned how to type. What has the world come to?

10/02/07 3:35:12 AM#15

That mouse looks very retro. I like that actually.

But in everyday use, it all comes down to which mouse offers me more comfort. So far, that price has fallen to my current G7 mouse which I love to death. Despite being cordless, it's very responsive, quite precise and not having the cord constantly get in the way is a godsend. Only drawback is that the supplied rechargable batteries only last a good day of intensive gaming, but it only takes a couple of seconds to change and the charger is quick enough to keep up with battery usage. By the time the battery in the mouse goes flat, the one in the charger has been ready for hours and you always get a fair warning when the battery is about to die.

Sure, the FPS crowd might laugh at me for using a cordless, but I'm an MMO player and the G7 is in no way a hindrance when it comes to WoW PvP. Quite the opposite. Since MMOs tend to be more about investing countless of hours and doing repetitive tasks rather than quick precision sniping from hundreds of yards away, comfort is IMHO much more important than DPI, acceleration speed, USB polling, fancy looks etc. If it feels good in your hand, responds the way you want it to and the buttons are placed right where you want them, then go for it.

Unfortunately, no mouse review is going to tell you how a certain mouse will make your hand feel after a 12 hour XP grind marathon since it's all so individual, so you just have to try things out on your own

I'm a big ol' fluffy carewolf. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

damn i must be really out of touch. i had no idea they were coming out with a new G mouse.  I just picked up another g5 for a total of 6 last week.  i have two for my 2 computers, had to get 2 for the g/f's two computers, 1 for work, and then the new one for my laptop.

im sure as soon as i get a chance to try this new one ill have to buy 6 of those!  i like that they didnt go wireless because i got tired of having battery problems with wireless mice years ago

shouldnt have taken any points off for looks. even the g5 looks ugly compaired to the plain mice of yesterday.  new tech is cool when it looks different. besides form follows function is the rule.

don't bother bringing a fancy mouse to work it's something they use to test the size of your ego.  for each button beyond two your ego is double the size.  and yes managers do pay attention to that.

A mouse like this I'd definitely have to test drive before I dropped $100.  I love my G5 and just got a replacement as, after 14 months of hard mileage, the right mouse button failed.

 

Oh, and Polytetrafluororethylene (PTFE) is the chemical compound for the trademarked name:  Teflon.  Further proof that all marketing people need to be strung up with piano wire.   Of course, the more likely explanation is that DuPont wants some royalties for using their (TM) in any product description and Logitech were unwilling to pay.  

The internet is an amazing platform for some people to showcase their deficiencies as a person.

We have a major arms escalation going on at work, the lunch hour game time competition in intense.  We all have the exact same computer but EVERYBODY had upgraded their keyboard and mouse in an attempt to gain some advantage.
