Set the scroll wheel to ratcheting mode,
This review is from: Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 (Personal Computers)I got this mouse from Logitech as a replacement for my G7 (G7's were out of stock), which developed the well-known fake double-click problem. The G7 is the best mouse I have ever used, in 15 years of computing. The G7 is just as good, or even better, if you do this:
Set the scroll wheel to the "notched" setting! From a user who commented on my review: "switch button right underneath the scroll wheel that switches between the hyper-fast scroll and the ratcheting (old school) scrolling". They were right.
For office use, this mouse was initially a pain because of its free-flowing scroll-wheel. The scroll wheel moves so easily that if you just move the mouse rapidly enough vertically, you'll get the wheel to scroll a few times. If you browse the web or edit documents for more than 10 minutes, this means scrolling your web page or document out of focus, zooming in or out, all at the lightest accidental touch of the scroll wheel or even apparently at random.
All this disappeared, and the mouse is a pleasure to use now, after I switched to ratcheting mode.
Bottom line: The G7 was Logitech's best mouse, but is no longer manufactured. This mouse is its replacement, and very good at that.
* the Eneloop battery lasts about a week of 8-hour mouse/keyboard office use per day (I don't mouse that much)
* get a rechargeable battery with more mAh than the Eneloop
* the wireless dongle is so small you can just forget it in your laptop's USB port and never worry about it

Did you know that there is a switch button right underneath the scroll wheel that switches between the hyper-fast scroll and the ratcheting (old school) scrolling? Give it a try; it might change the way you feel about the mouse.
