    +1 Kibaruk, I need a new mouse soon, as the current one (I use with my notebook) is nearing its EOL. May be this one will be a good choice for a 'reasonably priced' replacement mouse ;)

    Well I know what upgrade I am going to get next! This is beast! Although the buttons look like they are going to be pain, would of been cool if they were at the side.

    £25-30 for a mouse, nice but might get naga instead of this. Right now I have Elecom small laptop mouse .. lol But its pretty sweet lol xD

    I have tried to move away from my Naga, but it doesnt seem possible. I love how it feels and I especially love all those extra keys ^^

    Looks sweet! I have a wired G500 and before that I had a G5. The G5 lasted about three and a half years before it stopped working.
  8. I've yet to find a mouse more desirable than Logitech's MX 518...

    It does looks pretty good for $40. I might even pick this one up tomorrow, in fact. ;)
  10. I had the MX518 and passed on to the G500 and it was well worth it everything i loved plus more precision and universal scroll wheel

    One thing this little G300 is missing is the back foward button on the side

    No thumb buttons? Interesting that there are more buttons for your middle finger, but don't they realize that the extra fingers we're not already using for buttons are the thumb, ring and pinky. And they put the extra buttons for your index and middle fingers?

    Ah... I missed the line in the article about 'Gamers with simpler needs'... like a back button.

    It looks sorta fat too. I wish they'd add a couple buttons to their G400... I still think that's their best design.

    I kind of need thumb buttons on a gaming mouse, especially for modern shooters. I can't hold the mouse still, and I especially can't do so while clicking, so sniping is hell unless I remap to the side button.

    I would love to pick one up tomorrow but the article clearly states it will be available in the US on September =( (And even then I will have to order one from Chile =( )

    I didn't even read the date. I assumed they released it already. (Didn't actually read the whole article.) ;)

    I have a Logitech G3 laser, this looks like a good upgrade.

    The G400 is about the same price, so how are they different and why would some want one and some the other?

    Nice looking mouse and the price is pretty reasonable too but I'm concerned the placement of the 4 smaller control buttons which are now on top instead of on the side. Aren't these supposed to be the thumb buttons ?

    Ehh looks good, but like fpsgamerJR62 mentioned above, I hate the fact that the thumb buttons are up on top, because instead of hitting them with your thumb, you have to lift your trigger finger to hit press them and that's a minor drawback. The mouse itself does look very attractive.
     
  19. what about G400 ?
