I’m upgrading from a SteelSeries WoW Cataclysm Mouse, which was a wired MMO mouse, since I don't play games or even MMO’s anymore and it was starting to become faulty i thought i’d upgrade, and i figured i’d upgrade to a wireless mouse since the technology has come a long way in the past few years. (Included photo next to my old mouse)
And oh boy it has come a very long way, i remember my first wireless mouse was a dell one, and i remember playing games on it was so bad, you could see and feel the input lag, and that mouse honestly put me off wireless peripherals forever, but I heard a lot of good stuff about the technology logitech uses in their mouses so it bought back some hope for me, and this mouse has solidified that hope in concrete because it's amazing and you honestly can’t even tell it's wireless.
I got this one over the other wireless mice they have because it is more feature rich and looks more comfortable in the hand, it has a scroll wheel on the side, which to be honest would be useless for most people, but for me it helps because i draw in photoshop and it's good for scrolling sideways across the canvas, the only downside to the scroll wheel on the side is that the back and forward side buttons are in a very awkward position and difficult to press ,and they are small and close together so you find yourself hitting either the wrong one or both, now this doesn’t bother me too much as I don't use them often, but I imagine it's something you can very easily get used too.
Like i said earlier, you can’t even tell it's a wireless mouse, it's so responsive and there is no lag at all, not that the human eye can see anyway, if you recorded it and put it in super slow mo then you could probably see, but if you want to play FPS games you totally can and would have no disadvantage against people playing with wired mouse.
Also, I should mention the scroll wheel has two modes, and i find it hard to explain but I will try my best, one mode is like a traditional mouse wheel scroll where you keep feeling tactile bumps as you’re scrolling, and the other removes the feedback and makes it so you can spin the wheel like you’re spinning a prize wheel, it goes insanely fast, i don’t see an application where this would be useful, but I did see someone say it would be good for scrolling long word documents but you can just slick on the side where you want to be so in my opinion that wouldn’t be a very good use case, but hey ho you might find that super useful, i just don’t
Overall this is just a great wireless mouse and I really recommend it, it's got a great price, the build quality is amazing, the battery life is amazing, ive been using it for 5 days now (About 8 hours a day) and it's still on full bars! And as i mentioned earlier the only downside I can see if the side buttons being small and awkward.
10/10 Highly Recommended.
