Logitech® Wireless Gaming Mouse G700

A lot about mice in gaming communities is down to personal preference.  On many forums, the good old ‘wireless or wired’ debate still rages on, with the main argument of input delay or lag against ease of movement.  So when Logitech decide to release a wireless mouse, there will a lot of criticism against it, for purely being wireless.


Logitech’s last G-series wireless mouse, the wireless version of the G7, was loved and loathed by many.  For around $90, the wireless G7 was a mouse with two Li-ion batteries that lasted around 7 hours each, a charging dock, a thumb button, DPI switching on the fly, and depending on which version, a carbon-fibre look.

The G700 in will set out back $99.99 (£89), and is available in right-hand mode only.  Using a nano sized USB receiver, the G700 will operate between 200 and 5700 DPI, with a USB report rate of up to 1000 per second.  By way of low-friction polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) feet, a ‘gaming’-grade laser and 13 individually sculpted programmable buttons with macro compatibility, Logitech is marketing this mouse as ‘ideal for MMORPGs’.

Charging comes via a quick-connect USB cable (meaning if you run out of battery mid-game, there’s no hot-swap) but there’s no mention of how long a charge lasts.  The onboard LED display lets you know when the battery is about to run out, but personal experience with the G7 suggests that you’ll only find out when you bother to look down, after you’ve just died in-game.  The mouse is apparently durable for 250 billion yards of movement, and 8 million clicks of each button.

The wireless Razer Mamba is the main competitive product at this price point.

    Actually the first thought in my head told me that America spells it with a z. -ise to -ize was the reasoning behind it. Ah well, lesson learned! :)

    Can I pretty, pretty please have an updated TrackMan? I have a wireless one, but having to carry that long cord and huge receiver defeats the point of a wireless mouse with my laptop. I'd take one with a micro-receiver that barely sticks out of a USB plug in lieu of actual bluetooth. I know some will say a trackball is a terrible gaming mouse, but I really like it, and have no problems with it in an RTS like SC2.

    My G15 and G7 are going well but I am still waiting for a rerelease/update of the Trackman Marble FX. I went through 4 back in my lan party a week days and there is nothing better for shooters. 2-300 bucks for a used one on ebay and amazon is a testament.

    I am so stoked about all these products. I've had my g15 for about 4 years now, and I love it. But its getting old, i spilled soda on it once, and I have been look to replace it. OMFG G510 is the best news i heard all week. I am can't wait to buy it now.
    Also those headphones seem sick. I so want them too. I really just might drop 160 for those puppies.

    Hey wheres the anandtech 'bust it open' philisophy here? I can lend you a screwdriver and knife :)

    I want to see if the batteries are standard size. Have had several so called charge only peripherals its not uncommon to find normal size batteries inside them, meaning if we do have to swap then its possible to drop in a set of rechargables kept hot.

    *me waits for an article update*

    Anything tagged with News on the front page is News. So it's stuff we do not have in the labs to "bust open" unfortunately. Just a heads up of what to expect if the post is tagged News.

    ahhh duh, *slaps head* sorry, getting too excited - really want a remote headset WITH a mic, have sennheiser RS130 atm and then I have to stick a wired mic on it if i need to speak

    Really hope the wheel behave like the Mx revolution. "automatic gear out" ? , don't know how to say.

    Won't have a wirell device near my desktop. Hate batteries, charging stations, etc. The headset looks a bit cumbersome.. OK, it looks just downright klutzy. For that kind of bickies, give me a nice pair of Sennheisers.

    As for as keyboards, it looks nice and all, but please make that display fold up out of the way when I am just doing general office type functions. Nice enough for what they do, but I can't afford to be swapping out devices when I switch out tasks.... So, for me, my G5 mouse fills most of the functionality that I need, as well my good old Sun keyboard...
