Anyone tried both?
Looking for one to play FPS.
thankyou very much
The G7 response feels brilliant in FPS. And the resolution change buttons are great for sniping.
The G7 is the best mouse I've ever used. Batteries last a day or 2, but charge VERY quickly and can be changed, quite literally, within 3 seconds
I would go for the G7 or try the MX1000 both great products
thanks guys,anybody else?
Definately the G7, just finished playing a nice game of Counterstrike with mine - headshots galore
pretty sure my G7 is playing up
G7 is a cracking mouse if you like a cordless one. I like the G5 though, awesome!
Used G7 for a while, best mouse I have ever used
thanks guys, apart from one being cordless is there any other difference?
IIRC the G5 has weights in the base instead of a battery. You can change the way its loaded, makes it go faster I suppose
Another vote for the G7, best mouse I've ever owned.
G7 seems very popular
just ordered a G7 today, will report back when it arrives
I love my G7, I can pretend I'm reloading a weapon when I change batteries hold the mouse upside down in my right hand, press the battery release button with your thumb on your right hand slap the other battery in with the other hand
< ---- doesn't get out much hehe
Backs away slowly........um ok
I use a MX1000, part of the Logitech DiNovo...don't find the mouse lags when I have the dongle in a USB port on the back of my monitor
I'm sure the G7 owners will say its millions of times less responsive than a G7 though
I love my mx1000, the batteries last a good week, and it recharges very quickly. I've owned an mx500 and an mx510 and noticed very little difference in response time. Plus the weighty feel and large nature of the mouse suits my ham-fistedness to a treat.
You've made me want to buy a new keyboard.
a G5 owner here.
Best mouse ever, the adjustable weights are useful to make it feel a bit more comfy. And the adjustable resolution, especially once you make use of the software, are great. run mine in 1000/1500/2000 dpi modes.
Love it. Even ebtter than the old MX510 I had. shame the MX 510 looked nicer, really.
