(1)Mouse feels good to use and fits comfortably in the hand, especially if you have small hands.
(2) A lot of custom programmable buttons
(3) Battery life indicator (I like to know how much power is left, although it'll stay at 1 forever even if it's really on 2 lights, the lighting is flawed that way)
(4) Custom DPI settings (Dots Per Inch), ranging from 400-8200 (great for gamers and the DPI is more than enough for any personal preference).
(5) Mouse has a great tracking range. No lagging when using the mouse on wireless mode (haven't tried wired yet). Mouse laser has a good lift distance (so how well it responds when held above the mouse pad).
(1) Unless you're using Energizer Quantum powered batteries or ENELOOP rechargeable batteries, you will find all other batteries (even regular Energizer batteries) severely lacking in performance and longevity in terms of battery life.
(2) Like others have complained before, this mouse does have a heavy cord to it. I had a braided cord for my Mamba which felt light, and this cord feels more weighted, but it's not a deal breaker. I wanted a mouse with similar features to my mamba and i got it (minus the colour display but that's not a deal breaker either).
(3) When you download the Logitech software for this mouse to customize your settings, should you continue to keep the program on your computer, every time you restart your computer the software automatically changes all custom settings of your DPI on your mouse back to the default settings. Every. Single. Time. I have no idea why but the program only resets the DPI settings back to default while everything else stays the same. The solution? Program your own DPI settings to your liking, then remove the program from your computer. You'll keep your DPI settings. Profiles have been seen as a known issue too and Logitech can offer no permanent solutions for this fix.
(4) As mentioned on the pro side, the only fault with the battery life display on this mouse is that it stays at 3 when the battery used is fully charged but drops to a 1 shortly after. This doesn't mean that you need to change your battery immediately (nor is it a deal breaker). It just means that the battery life is actually at a 2 and the small flaw is that instead of displaying 2 lit up battery lights (for an accurate display), the battery will only display the one light which means that your battery is likely half charged. You can confirm the battery life through the Logitech software program but this display the issue mentioned in the previous negative feature (catch 22).
(5) Loud mouse wheel. Not a deal breaker, but compared to another gaming mouse I had purchased from Razer, this mouse wheel is much louder in comparison. It's only a little loud to be fair but it's definitely noticeable for me as my other mouse wheel hardly made any noise until you really cranked the mouse wheel up or down quickly. Again, no deal breaker but some mice come with quiet wheels so for those that are used to little to no sound from a wheel, this one may seem louder to you.
The mouse feels good for my small hands. Still getting used to it. For people having problems with the battery life, yes it uses a lot of battery power. This mouse was designed to be used with a little lag as possible and doesn't have any power saving features minus the sleep mode. Therefore, it's only natural that it has a high battery performance use. Wireless gaming mice, unless powered by a lithium ion battery, will not last long at all on lesser cell powered batteries. Lithium Ion batteries last about 3 days, which is great. The downside? once they're dead you'll need to find a replacement from the same company for your mouse. If you can't find a replacement, you're out of luck. So, solutions for those complaining about the short battery life, get these 2 batteries:
Either an Energizer Quantum powered battery (non rechargeable) OR an ENELOOP rechargeable batteries. I never heard of this company until I looked into buying this mouse. They make GREAT long lasting rechargeable batteries and they actually blow energizer out of the water (yup, Energizer doesn't make the cut when it comes to this mouse unless it's the quantum powered kind).
You'll find any other battery brand, even energizer rechargeable batteries won't make the cut, let alone last a full day at providing you with the wireless feature. The reason? All the other batteries simply aren't made to last that long nor meant for the high demanding performance from such a demanding power house mouse (yes, even energizer). So unless you go with either brand, you're going to find the battery life severely lacking when it comes to this mouse. For cost reasons, I recommend rechargeable batteries to save you money down the road if you're constantly using batteries for wireless devices such as controllers, keyboards and gaming mice.
Logitech makes good gaming mice, despite some flaws. So, if you wanted to look at other products, I would personally avoid any Razer products with any device or accessory that requires a lithium ion battery to operate. Why? Because Razer does make amazing quality gaming products (one of the best I've used and seen in my personal opinion), some of their products are 1: heavily over priced and 2: this company is in my opinion, one of the greediest money grabbers that I've ever seen in terms of shipping and shipping fees. I recently worked in a warehouse, so I am aware to some degree of shipping costs. Razer, however, will use the most EXPENSIVE company to ship through (for me it was Fed-Ex Express) and they WON'T tell you who they're using or WHY their shipping is so expensive (seriously, it's an arm and a leg). Sure it gets to your house in 2 days, but the shipping for one lithium ion battery for my razer mamba (great product, but heavily over priced) turned out to be $40 for shipping (for using Fed-Ex Express), plus the $10 charge for using their services (which I got in the mail a week later, thanks, Razer). The battery itself only cost $20 (and the new battery didn't even last a full day). So anything you buy from their store is going to cost at least $40 to ship. Avoid Razer for online accessories.
After a week of using it I have all the same problems I've had with every mouse they say is large. It's not the worst. It's got decent height but is missing any sort of palm rest. The width is average. The finger placement is just OK and is workable. The recharge extension and dongle are all great That fiddly USB garbage from previous versions where you could never find the angle. It's back and only marginally better. They widened the plastic and created a guide. The detent on the buttons are firm and smooth. The wheel has no detent but instead a little resistance. Some aux buttons feel like a $3 toy. Thumb buttons are high long and close together. They are pushed almost with the top of your thumb. I can't use them because to use my thumb I have no way of manipulating the mouse and hitting the button without moving my hand to a new position to push and move it back to move the mouse again. With large hands you can use your fingertips or palm but not both at the same time without folding your hand inside out.
Games are not just for kids anymore adults also play games. We need games and devices moved out of the kids aisle and start making them for adults. Please someone out there make a mouse for people with larger than childs.
At first, the size of the mouse was unconfortable because I was so much used to the other model. But it is a great upgrade.
It is a lot lighter than the MX Performance, and contrary to the MX performance, the USB cable also transmit DATA, which means that you can use it without a battery (in case yours is completely dead).
Using the software from Logitech, you can configure the mouse sensitivity to your liking. The mouse has a memory chip in it, which means that once you program it using the software, it will retain the settings even if you use your mouse on another computer of, let say, on a XIM4. :)
This will end up causing a single click to randomly double click or stick down and cause you to click and drag. I have never had this happen with a cheaper mouse and is unacceptable with one costing this much. Thankfully there are a few guides on how to fix this problem as it seems common with Logitech mice.
