Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700

Best gaming mouse

Pros
  • Great ergonomics
  • High precision
  • Dual-mode scroll wheel
  • Onboard memory profiles
  • LED display
Cons
  • No weight customization
  • Poor battery life
  • Right-handed use only
  • May be too heavy for some
  • Rigid charging cable

Most reviewers say the Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 is a first-rate gaming mouse that continues the company's tradition of excellence. With 5,700 dpi and 1,000 Hz, the G700's precision eclipses all but a few of its gaming competitors. Capable of storing up to five player profiles, the G700 features 13 customizable buttons that let users map keyboard commands, set macros or adjust tracking sensitivity in the heat of battle. Optimum thumb-button placement and a matte finish enhance the G700's ergonomic comfort, though some say the included AA battery makes the mouse feel heavy. Other features include an LED battery indicator and a dual-mode scroll wheel that allows click-to-click weapon selection and hyperfast scrolling through long web pages or documents, though reviewers say the G700 is more suitable for gaming than general use.

Because the mouse was released in August 2010, most reviews date from that period. We found credible reviews of the G700 at TechRadar.com, CrunchGear.com and TechSpot.com, where Shawn Knight laments not being able to include it in his 12-mouse roundup due to the timing of the G700's release. Still, he gives it top billing, as does Anthony Garland of EverythingUSB.com. Both Amazon and Newegg.com offer a number of helpful user reviews.

1. TechRadar.com

TechRadar.com awards 4.5 out of 5 stars to the Logitech G700 Wireless Gaming Mouse in this brief write-up, praising the mouse's responsiveness and functionality, calling it "a rough and ready wireless gaming mouse trapped in a meek and mild man's body." The review concludes that the mouse is a "fantastic deal" for gamers.

2. EverythingUSB.com

Anthony Garland breaks down his review of the highly recommended G700 into two parts. The first describes a marathon gaming session over a three-day period using fast-twitch games such as "Left 4 Dead 2" and "Modern Warfare 2." The second test addresses general usage in applications such as Excel and Photoshop. In both tests, Garland finds that the G700 exceeds capability and proves why Logitech engineers are the "undisputed grandmasters of mouse design."

Matt Burns isn't as detailed in his G700 review as Anthony Garland at EverythingUSB.com, but Burns does a succinct job of outlining what he likes, including the device's precision, wireless connectivity and design. He calls the G700 as "possibly the best yet" and can't find any flaws.

4. TechSpot.com

Had the Logitech G700 been released in time for his 12-mouse roundup, Shawn Knight says it would have taken top honors for best gaming mouse. In this combined review of the Logitech G700 and the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G510, Knight says he likes the feel and button layout of the G700, but remains most dazzled by its "high quality 5,700 dpi rating and 1,000 MHz polling rate." The only drawback is its price.

5. Bit-tech.net

Editors at Britain's Bit-Tech.net are far less enamored with the G700 than other reviewers, issuing a scathing critique of its "dreadful" wireless mode and lamenting that the mouse performs well only when connected to a USB cable. They also say the included AA battery makes the G700 heavier than most other gaming mice.

6. Amazon.com

More than 200 users mostly praise the G700, giving it an average rating of 4.4 stars out of 5 for its natural feel and gaming accuracy. They also like the flexible scroll wheel, steady tracking and programmable buttons. However, they pan the stiff charging cable, poor battery life and lack of weight customization.

7. NewEgg.com

More than 250 users review the G700 at Newegg.com, awarding it an overall score of 4 out of 5 eggs. Most owners laud the mouse's comfort, excellent gaming performance and quick response, particularly during first-person shooter games. But like those at Amazon.com, users downgrade the G700's short battery life and heavy charging cable.
