best wireless mouse that is SLEEK and PERFORMANT
« on: Wed, 19 April 2017, 03:49:49 »
Y'all.. I'm ordering the X1 carbon 2017 (gen 5) or the T470 soon.

I need a sleek and sexy looking mouse with it.

Go wireless? Or do they actually truthfully all still suck?

Anyho, in the last years I only have experience with Avior 7000, Castor, and the old Logaytech G400s which I hated.

What options do I have that goes well with the design aesthetic of the thinkpad black shell AND performs well?

good wireless mice: Logitech G900 and G403 (and perhaps G602), Roccat Leadr, Logitech MX series (if you don't need low latency and consistent sensing) can't think of anything else.

No, wireless does not suck.
This is spread by people using cheap low end wireless, which are garbage. If you get something higher end by Logitech or Microsoft you more than likely will not have any issues.

*Note I exclusively use wireless (I tend to break cords), and have used and own more than half of the mice I recommended here.

Best wireless mouse, hands down - Logitech G900
Similar weight to a wired mouse, no acceleration, days long battery life (rare for a gaming desktop mouse)... However, I wouldn't use a G900 for travel unless you get a dedicated bag or case for it (before placing inside your laptop bag) as the way the buttons overhang, they could get damaged if they snag on something. Like the G700, it actually stores it's settings onboard, so if you use other operating systems or switch between multiple systems, your settings will carry over. You could set up a profile for Windows and another for Mac so all buttons work how you want, and then be able to switch the sensor settings as well without ever needing to install the Logitech software.  I did a review of this in the Review section of the forum, not cheap, but fantastic.

Best portable wireless mouse - Logitech Anywhere 2
A portable that feels as comfortable as a fullsize mouse, months long battery charge. Odd scroll wheel release though. I did a review of this in the Review section of the forum, again, not cheap or good for gaming, but a fantastic portable mouse.



Other good alternatives (though only the G series iss meant for games):
Fullsize - Logitech G700s, (FUGLY!), but a great mouse and a smoking deal for what you can find them for these days, G403, G502, G604. Or the Mx performance.
Portable - Microsoft Arc (not good for gaming), any small, cheap Logitech wireless.
Despite being cheap, the cheap Logitech mice  work quite well, just don't expect to use it for a full days work or gaming, but for $15, if it gets destroyed, you won't be too upset.

Not recommended:
Pretty much anything wireless that is not MS or Logitech. This is especially true for cheap, non-bluetooth wireless, seriously, don't even bother.
Even good, high end wireless have connectivity problems, I'm not sure what MS and Logitech do, but if you look up reports on various mice, you will find fewer problem per capita by Logitech and MS, by a LONG shot. As for lower end, most cheaper brands start glitching out after a few months, sometimes less. So while you pay more for Logitech or MS, they last a lot longer.

I'm afraid that the built-in battery will die on the G900. Put I like the idea of a "mobile PWM3366".

How is the G900 better than the G403 wireless? Coz the G403 also comes with PWM3366.

I don't care that the G900 is expensive (122 euro's here vs, for instance Mionix Castor is 69 euro's here), but I wonder about it's durability.

Oh.. and some report the ability to wiggle the mouse buttons on the G900. Is that true?

Oh.. and some report the ability to wiggle the mouse buttons on the G900. Is that true?

At 1000mhz refresh and 7000 DPI, with lights on, basically worst thing you can do, the battery will last about 28-30 hours of use. If you turn off the lights, the battery will last 32 hours non-stop.  It's not going to die on you, but if it did, 5 minutes on a cell phone charger gets you 2-4 hours or something like that. The software will even tell you the exact amperage draw it's using so it's not like you are going to be surprised by it.

As for it vs the 403.
The 900 has no acceleration for gaming (not a big deal for most people) and the G900 can connect to 3 machines, (switched by pressing a button on bottom) using the dongle and bluetooth. While the 403 uses a dongle. Bluetooth is about 10 times more efficient than the dongle, but less responsive. The 900 also gets slightly more battery life (2-10 hours more).


The buttons can wiggle a teeny bit.. That's because of how they are mounted.
Most mice use a plastic flex hinge, I.E. a thinner section of the plastic body that flexes, the G900 uses an actual hinge, as in a pin running through holes. This means they can wiggle more than people are used to (it's not noticeable while using it), but also makes for softer buttons since you aren't fighting the plastic.

I use dual 1080p screens for cad so i need pixel level precision, I also get carpal tunnel chasing a mouse all over my desk.

So I use super high resolution and refresh, then turn down mouse sensitivity in the OS to compensate. This way I can go across both screens with very little movement (1/2 to 3/4in mouse movement), but still have pixel level resolution.

"oh but gaming...!"
I can spin around 180 degrees and headshot someone no problem, however you need to build up to it. Most people do not have the dexterity from the start to do such precise movements at rapid speed, it takes practice.

Thanks for the info! But... where did you read about bluetooth? I can't find it anywhere.. I want to believe you, it would be friggin awesome. But I can't find it.
I ran Powertop  and checked what the system was pulling when using both.
Not 100% perfect or foolproof (the power draw is pretty low regardless), but the results were drastic enough to be noticeable.

Watch for them on sale, I paid $106, but I believe they have been found for as low as $79 on occasion.

The G403 or G700 are probably the next best thing.
The G700 is great, but battery life is far below what a G403 and G900 is.

AAARGH G403 wireless also looks nice... but G900 is also nice. Difference only is shape and battery life yes? AAARGH.

Gotta check m out somewhere. The rubberized grip on the G403 looks nice. the G900 looks very plasticy on the sides.

Ok ok I bought G403 wired to test it out. Felt both G900 and G403. G900 felt much better, but I also liked the G403. So bought G403 first (probably ending up having both).

Love it so far. But that curve at the bottom is like a ridge that constantly pressures in your pinky.

Also, WTF such ****ING BAD mouse glides? IT basically rips my Roccat Hiro apart. It also leads to resistance + noise. W T F

I bought a MX Master to use at the office and it's replaced my beloved MS Trackball Explorer. If that can replace my favorite input device...I have no choice but to recommend it  :))

not really much lag at all, definitely usable for games (i'd skip FPS games tho), and you can use it wired

The 900 has no acceleration for gaming (not a big deal for most people) and the G900 can connect to 3 machines, (switched by pressing a button on bottom) using the dongle and bluetooth. While the 403 uses a dongle. Bluetooth is about 10 times more efficient than the dongle, but less responsive. The 900 also gets slightly more battery life (2-10 hours more).

I swear, I have no idea why this idea keeps popping up.

The G900 does not support multiple devices OR Bluetooth. The button on the bottom is for switching between profiles stored in the on-board memory. The only wireless it supports is via the provided USB dongle. That's it.


The MX Master is the mouse that supports pairing with up to 3 devices via the switch on the bottom (and Bluetooth).

I've had the g900 for about a year. No complaints.

Edit- Oh, dead thread. yudodis.
I generally hate all keycaps. Keycaps are for poofs. Real men touchtype on stems. Non-functional artisans are awesome, I use them for the ESC key ... escape is for cowards anyways, real men go frontal assault.

for those who are looking to get a wireless mouse,
logitech has released the G703 and G903. essentially they're similar to the G403 and G900, but they feature a wireless charging mouse mat. "powerplay" is what they call the tech:

IBM Model F XT // Realforce 87U 55g Type-S // HHKBP2 45g Type-S // KBT Pure Pro Cherry MX Red

I want something wireless, comfortable and at least 8K DPI. I'm really tempted to go back to the G700s but I think I've been spoiled by the G900 sensor.

I've look really hard at getting the Logitech MX Master but I honestly don't know how anyone can use a mouse that is only 1000 DPI. Even the new v2 is only 4000 DPI.

I tried switching my G900 to those lower DPI's and yeah....I have to pick my mouse up move it, pick it up...move it...yeah I prefer moving only a few inches and going from edge to edge on my screens.

Eh, technically they announced them. The Power Play wireless charging mat is going to be available in August (I think?), and the Mice (903 and 703) will be available at the end of the month.

$149 G903
$99  G703
$99 Power Play mat

So it's a minimum of $200 to get a full set up, just to be clear.

I honestly want to know wtf is wrong with me. I can't go above 800 dpi, and I have 3x 4k screens (used to have 3x 30"). I can't even imaging 8k dpi. Like, my brain can't process actually being able to use a DPI that high

I guess it's whatever you get used to. :shrug:

On a side note I'm now going to try the G403.

Absolutely bad-ass mouse. Probably going to ditch my 900, 403, and G Pro for the 703 + Power Play once it drops

Some people lack the dexterity to move at such tiny increments.

Another thing that can explain it is that many people today have grown up on large, high DPI monitors and garbage mice that came with their system while the older among us started with low res mice/monitor combos and upgraded to match each generation of newer monitors to retain the same movement. I STILL have customers using not just ball mice, but ball mice with no scroll wheel even (*shudder*) while using a 36in or larger screen, which is why I carry spare mice with me on the job.

I've used pretty much the same movement "feel" for many, many years, tuning the system and mouse so it feels as close as it did before the last upgrade. It has slowly drifted towards higher and higher dpi, but it's a slow drift, not a big jump.

Got the g403 wireless today.



Intuitively, I know wireless will never perform as well as wired.


But, I can't believe it's not crack cocaine..    Whatever it is, it's pretty close to crack cocaine is my point.. ..

If the G703 suffers from the same problems that both my G900s have, that's a deal breaker.

Good thing it's still under warranty until late 2018

Yeah, I am not far off. I am running about 2500-3000. I saw someone earlier said they set theirs at 10k. Hats off to them. I can't do it.

I use 1600dpi on  720p and 800p resolution

When I use 1080p or 1600p I up that to 2400dpi



This is very important for ergonomics.  Using only small finger and wrist movements , I can get across the entire screen.
