However, after the first 18 months:
1) The wireless stopped working and the mouse now must remain wired to the computer
2) The mouse intermittently double clicks when a single click is made
3) The mouse frequently stops dragging and re-clicks in the middle of a drag
I did not expect a $100 mouse to lose these key features after 18 months.
Wish i got the newer one for looks, but its worthwhile if looking for a nice mouse that will last. I Love that it can be wired or wireless depending on your needs. Very few mice have this option.
Receiver was not able to be unified, but there's plenty of usb connectors on PCs today.
However, there are a few things I'm not so happy about. The mouse and supplied software automatically recognizes many games including BF3, but I couldn't program the thumb buttons properly in auto mode. Once I set up a manual BF3 profile I was able to program the buttons to my liking although it took awhile to get everything programmed. I ended up deleting the non-gaming profiles as they kept coming up when I didn't want them (I was perhaps hitting the profile button by accident). Better documentation would be welcome, it's kind of hit and miss figuring out how to program this mouse. So expect to take awhile to get this mouse set up the way you like. There have also been several occasions when my DPI settings have mysteriously changed. It isn't a big deal to fix, but it's annoying.
The single battery is okay for short to medium gaming session, but if you like to play for extended sessions you'll find the battery running dry. If you plug in the charging/data cable you can continue playing but the stiff plastic cable really drags, it actually tugs on the mouse and ruins the precision this mouse if capable of. A more flexible cable (maybe with a braided fabric wrap) would be a big improvement. If you want to go to bed expecting the mouse to be charged in the morning you'll need a USB port that is powered even when your computer is turned off, I use a powered outboard USB hub for this. I think two batteries would be a good idea for this product.
The plastic feet the mouse rides on will probably last forever on a foam mouse pad. However on a hard plastic pad (like the one I bought with this mouse) the feet are soon scratched by dust and grit between the feet and the pad, and yes I can feel the drag. I've used Armor All to keep the feet feeling slick, I think a more scratch-resistant plastic would be a better choice for the feet. The feet are supposed to be replaceable, but I probably don't want to know what Logitech charges for new ones.
Overall I'm pleased with this product, it really improved my game play. But it could use a couple of improvements like a softer cable and easier programming, I'd give it another star with those improvements.
- Is this a good mouse? Yes. Read the tons of reviews most of which are very positive. I agree with all of the positive comments.
- Will this mouse work as intended out of the box on a Mac? No. The mouse will work on a Mac with no changes, but it is far from fully functional. If you bought this mouse, you were likely not looking for a 2 button replacement mouse and that is about what you would get out of the box on a Mac. Most of the buttons will not work as intended and configuration is far from optimal.
- Is it a surprise that the G700 does not work on a Mac out of the box? No. The box clearly states Windows and never mentions Mac at all. Additionally even a cursory review of the web clearly shows the G700 is not supported on Mac.
- Will Logitech support Mac for the G700? No. There are threads that go back years with updates from Logitech personnel that clearly say they have no intentions of supporting Mac OS. Do not waste time asking why.
- Should Logitech support Mac for G700? Yes. But get over it, they are not.
- Can you make the G700 fully functional on a Mac? Yes. More later.
- Is it worth the effort? Yes. Mac users are in general spoiled by ease of use of peripherals and everything in general. Again if you bought this mouse you probably do not mind spending the time to configure it to exactly what you want which is what this mouse does best.
- So why only 4 stars? It does kind of suck that you have spend a little extra effort to use it on Mac especially since Logitech really could prevent this.
Figuring out how to use G700 on a Mac is pretty easy using any internet search and I will not go into great details, but here are some quick summary of options:
- Configure G700 on a PC then just shift to a Mac. This is the easiest method, the one I use, and the only one I have seen specifically mentioned by a Logitech support agent. It is very easy. One key point is set the sensor speed on your PC to 125 (this value comes directly from a Logitech post and is easily done on a PC). This is truly the best thing about this mouse. Once configured it works on any PC - and similarly on a Mac - due to the onboard profiles. Only purest Mac users have a problem with this since they dislike everything PC, but everyone has access to a PC to some degree.
- There are several 3rd party Mac options. I have not tried them and am specifically not mentioning them, but they are easy to find. They nominally cost $20-25 and some have fully functional demo versions with no expiration that seem to work. The advantage is they seem to be specifically targetted at Logitech mice and you can directly select the G700. This is probably one of the most comprehensive solutions.
- You could use the mouse as is on a Mac, but you will not be able to change the dpi switching (one of the coolest and most useful options), many of the buttons will be unusual, and in general you will not be happy.
Clearly I think option #1 is best. Good luck and thanks for reading!
