The only thing I want from Logitech is a mechanical keyboard (brown switches preferably) with an LCD, getting rid of the orange color and minimal branding (G710+ has too much).
And all that for no more than $150 but somehow I think thats wishful thinking on my part.:ohwell:

For $150? I think a lot of people would want that. Logitech would probably go out of business, though.

Is the G700 mouse wireless?( oh crap should have read it before posting:banghead:) Is it like the old style rechargeable mice that has it`s own stand for it,Can you take out the battery`s and use your own?

If you guys have battery problems,Go pick up the Duracell re charger with 4 AA battery's,They charge in 30 mins, I did this when i got my replacement MK710 keyboard mouse combo.The last one had coffee spilled all over them.....Heck for a half hour you could charge them while your out side ,at work.... or having sex.

The G700 is connected wirelessly or via a MicroUSB play-n-charge cable. No docks.

You can replace the MicroUSB cable with any one if you like. I sometimes use the one from my phone. Most phones use that cable so it's easy to replace if you loose it.

i did have the same problem, i call them up, they told me to take up battery, keep clicking both side for like 3-5mins, after that the problem is gone!!

apparently it got to do with capacitor inside :p it get dirty w/ power in it all the time or smthing. i used this mouse over 2 years now
Is this a fix for the bad battery life? or the double click issue? The latter is ruining me and the entire experience with my PC at the moment.:banghead:

Logitech changes the aesthetics on there products and calls them new for the 5th year in a row.
My buddy has the mouse pictured without the new paint.
He went on to tell me it works great, except that the resistance in the scroll wheel is broken and the side buttons don't work but yea over all great mouse.
So going from 5700DPI max to 8200DPI max is an aesthetics change?:shadedshu

Honestly Logitech bundles some of the best rechargeable batteries with the G700s. It comes with eneloop batteries.

Personally, I still don't understand people using wireless mouses. You can never tell me that 1 little cable is so much difficult to bear.

Nice. G700s looks good, but G19s is ugly. I have G19 and it's much prettier then "s".

When you got horny drunks that wanna use it for erotic asphyxiation... (gasp!)

The double click problem is typically a capacitor having an issue

However, there is one fix to discharge that capacitor and resolve the issue

Here's how to do this:

  1. Unplug the mouse and/or remove batteries
  2. Let it sit for a minute without a power source
  3. Click the button rapidly and for about 30 secs.
  4. Wait another 30 secs. then insert batteries or plug mouse back into USB

Now please verify the problem is resolved.

Hope this helps!

Or just when your computers on the floor to your left, and the mouse cable has to be stretch up to the top right side of your desk.

I hate constantly tugging on a cable. Once you switch to a good wireless mouse you'll never go back to wired. You don't realize how much of a drag that cable puts and how much you have to work around it, and tug on it, until it is gone.

HeHe "Tug on it 'till it's gone"

I own quite a bit of Logitech stuff, not impressed with their KB offerings. At all. :eek:

They need to focus more on the "mature" gamer IMHO, less flash. More form/function. :pimp:

Need a review on Logitech G230 NAO!

Wonder if they're better than Plantronics 780... They certainly seem to be cheaper... and look just as good, to me.

Well here's a review I did for the G35 headset and I think it's Pretty good however the G230 is not a USB headset it uses regular stereo jack so you don't get LGS controls for it :(

I think they are still using the same driver units....
