I have used my trusty G9 for general computer use as well as for FPS, RTS, and MMO style games. I have been able to dominate at Call of Duty type games that require quick and accurate input.
The mouse fits under the hand and moves with ease. It glides smoothly and seamlessly across the desk surface. I use it with my wrist joint anchored on the table and articulate the device with my hand muscles. The mouse feels like a natural extension of the body and interface with the computer. It translates my inputs to the computer screen just as I would expect it to. It accurately distinguishes fine adjustments from large movements and replicates whichever I intend.
The cord does not seem to get in the way or impede mouse movement.
I do not use the fancy programmable functions any longer.
I have not experienced any sticking of the buttons even after the many years I have snacked on the computer and had sticky fingers.
If I could describe the G9 with one word, it would be "natural."
A downside to this mouse is you will immediately notice the inferiority of other mice when on a public or friend's computer.
This mouse is pretty amazing in its feature set. The software works in Windows Vista 64. However I suggest going to the logitech site and downloading the latest version there for your OS. Once you download it you can set the functions of the various keys and the sensitivity of the laser, the sampling rate (the rate in which the mouse measures movement, from my understanding). You can also save and create profiles or change the color of the light.
The amazing thing is once you set your preferences all that data is saved on the mouse itself! So say you set the side thumb buttons to increase or decrease the volume. You can now go to a different computer or OS and that button will perform the same function. Even in the OS that you installed the mouse software, you don't need the software running in the background to use your macros or switch profiles. Amazing! If you're worried that buying a high end mouse like this means another process in your process tree, don't.
The pads on this thing are unbelievable smooth. Using it on a wood surface almost feels like gliding on the the table. I would imaging using this with some sort of ultra smooth mouse pad would be absolutely incredible.
Of course the question is, given this price, do you really need all that functionality? Do you really need a mouse that can do 2000 dpi?
Coming from a cheap wireless optical mouse I thought the idea of 2000 dpi was awesome. But once you tried it out I realized that it was simply overkill. It is way too sensitive. So i tried my settings with a maximum of 1800 and it was still too sensitive to play an fps with. Imagine turning the sensitivity bar in the options menu of your game to max. Finally I settled with a setting of 800 1000 1200 and 1600 dpi increments. Even then I constantly run it in 1000 dpi, while surfing or gaming. I only occasionally adjust it while playing a brand new game if the sensitivity isn't right. Of course the same effect can be accomplished much more cheaply via the sensitivity bar in the game's options menu.
So basically don't let dpi be the selling point for this mouse, increasing dpi is just like increasing "sensitivity" in the options.
Finally the high sampling rate might be another selling point. But again do you really need it? Frankly I couldn't for the life of me tell the difference between 1000 sampling rate and 1500. Also keep in mind that a higher sampling rate will require more processing power, taking away from game performance.
As for comfort well I found that adding weight to it makes it travel less smooth. So the feature of being able to add weight to it is again unnecessary, for me at least, since I prefer the travel to be as smooth as possible.
Buy this only if you have $65 to burn and you really can't think of anyplace else to spend it (some surround sound headphones maybe). If you've been getting by with your trusty old mouse then save your money. I honestly don't think the features are necessary. If you might lose your job in the next 6 months but you really need a gaming mouse and are thinking about this or something that costs less, buy the one that costs less.
I apologize for any spelling or grammar mistakes, its 1:03am and I don't feel like proof reading.
The two grips included are also quite nice. The gaming one has the advantage that it is less likely to become slipper from sweat and also shows less of the oils. The regular one feels slightly nicer to touch and has the benefit that it keeps my thumb off of the surface which helps keep it more comfortable. It's too bad that Logitech did not do what they did with the G5 by creating a hybrid of these two grips. I wouldn't mind having the areas that are gripped more be the slip-resistant compound.
The G9 is definitely rich in features. Unlike the early G5's, the G9 has both forwards and backwards buttons which help make day to day browsing/computing a lot nicer. The fast scrolling is also an absolute pleasure. I don't think I want to go back to regular 'click' scrolling for day-to-day use. The wheel stays spinning for a long time, so what used to be a lot of ratcheting to get to the bottom of the page (or a number of annoying scroll-bar clicks) is now two actions: a flick to get the wheel spinning and a stopping action once there. The mouse responds to these changes quickly too, so there is no need to worry about overshooting what you are looking for if you are alert. Only occasionally (and during games) is it necessary to switch back to a 'click' scrolling mode. The button for this is unfortunately in an annoying location, and for a while I needed to flip the mouse over to see where it is. Eventually I did manage to get used to where it is and now I can do it blind.
As with the G5 the cord is very nice. By not being a rubber cord it does not get stuck like regular cords and slides with ease over most surfaces. This means that it is hard to jam it never gets stuck under the mouse.
The sensor also seems to be a good one. As with the G5 it works on plenty of surfaces, including ones with small defects that optical mice simply can't deal with. As far as I can tell the DPI boost is not very relevant as in practice there really isn't any noticeable difference between 2000 and 3200 DPI. It's just nice to know that the mouse can handle high precision.
The part where things take a turn for the worse is the DPI settings. Like predecessors, this mouse lets the user select from 5 user-set DPI sensitivities. That part is not at all a problem. A quick adjustment in the software and it is done. What does not work very well is the change of profiles. To change profiles (which has a new set of 5 DPI presets) another button on the bottom needs to be pushed while pushing the + and - buttons on the top. This is not exactly a simple motion and is the main reason I basically stick to one profile (which is enough anyways). I guess what does help is that the software can be set to automatically change profiles depending on what other programs are running, but setting this up is a total pain and requires a lot of patience. If you are considering buying this mouse for its multi-profile feature, you either need to have a lot of patience in setting everything up or you should keep on looking.
For the rest the buttons have a nice feel and so far are not showing any weakening. They have a very definite click but are not very hard to push so you get a lot of feedback while still allowing for some fast and easy clicking. The feet on the bottom give a nice low resistance, although they do seem to wear out quick on rougher surfaces. I would recommend using this mouse primarily on smooth surfaces to help increase the lifetime of the product.
Conclusion: Overall this mouse is a good mouse. I would recommend this to almost anyone as it is a nice product that has features useful to almost anyone. It also feels like a quality product, which at this price is always a nice thing to have. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that it has the trouble with the buttons on the bottom. If Logitech had just fit them somewhere else I think I would have given it the full 5.
