Logicool G602

they got dat G603 now.. 

Time to UPdate!!


The new Gx03 line-up appears to be more of a complete redesign than an incremental update. I haven't really checked, but G403, G603 and G703 look like the exact same mouse only with different internal features (mainly wireless). OTOH, the old G700(s) had a very different shape (closer to MX Performance), though, and so did G602 (not to mention G600) with more thumb buttons.

The 403 603 703 are all descendants of the original MX500 shape..  it really just removed the lower left wing under the thumb

603 has the latest hero sensor. it's super efficient while maintaining 1000hz. 10x the power efficiency of pixart 3366 sensor.

They're going to update the m0ar buttons line eventually.

But the improvement of the 603 hero sensor is too large to ignore, even at the reductions of a few buttons..

Because we're looking at the market as it is NOW,  and dat sensor.. super awesome..

I'm currently using a mouse (Kone Pure Color) with A9080 (iirc) and don't care at all, although I have the PWM-3310 version (Kone Pure Military) in the closet; I also have no interest in upgrading to the Owl's Eye. I don't even know what sensitivity setting I'm using off the top of my head.

No sensor improvement matters, if it isn't noticeable.

The 3360 series sensor is suppose to be (m0ar r4w) than the 3310.

Since Release i've switched my MX Performance for the MX Ergo. Really happy with that. The lack of the free flow scrollwheel is not that great, but scrolling with the trackball itself is nearly as good.

Does the mx ergo have angle-snapping or is there an option to turn it off.

Using an ELECOM M-XT3URBK with a Logitech trackball. Works pretty well though I'm curious to try some other thumb trackball mice.

Steam Controller ^_^

It works quite well with the SC Controller software on GNU/Linux desktop.

Okay, right now I'm typing, though, and not gripping the controller; I have a CST L-Trac next to the keyboard.

Before that, I used the built in pointing devices in my thinkpad, i.e., a genuine trackpoint and a T450 trackpad, or a Mionix Avior SK in the office (I've also bought another Roccat Kova 2016 to enjoy EasyShift both at home and in the office).

But right now I'm on a tablet, so my finger on a digitizer screen.

Upgraded to a new Logitech G203 Prodigy from my trusty Zowie EC2-A. The clicks are extremely light compared to the EC but I'm loving it! Tracking is excellent especially at this price point and I prefer this light, rubberized cable to the G Pro's braided one. Looking forward to grabbing the wireless G305 Lightspeed sometime down the line.

What is the difference between 33xx and Hero? The mouse with 33XX has much better specs. The Hero is a game changer though? What is so special about Hero?

TP, do you use a mouse or trackball? Since I think you know this stuff it shall validate or discredit what I use.
I do think you mentioned a couple of days ago as I agree that trackballs simply do not have the performance of say G903.

Is there a hack to bring G903 to 3389? Not that I need it. There is no way I would use other than Logitech even if others have the 3389 for bragging rights. Certainly not razer. Coolermaster or some such have a 3389 too. Junk. Cannot compare to G903. Which means of course with the new sensor Logitech will be updating it soon. Yet again. I will buy, sucker!

To me L-Track, Slimblade etc is like driving a 10 year old Kia. The G903=Ferrari.

Plugged in the Itac Hand-Trak again. It's been laying around here more than a year. Can't seem to get used to it so I play with it for a bit then put it back in the drawer. It's... er... interesting.

Since TP4 announced the G305 was the greatest thing around I decided to get one.

So far I'm undecided.

It may be a better fit at home versus work but I'll give it a few days.

So I'm pretty excited, someone in China developed a straight clone of the G9/G9x with a centered 3360:

https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?&id=570009774507

I actually found out about this a few weeks ago but it was no longer for sale and I was really disappointed, but luckily they've decided to do a second batch so I immediately grabbed one.  I've owned a lot of mice over the years and with the precision grip it's still the only mouse that I can go back to and immediately feel comfortable with (other mice I have to get reacquainted with first).

Have you got it already if so any thoughts? and does it come with the different grips? I still have a semi functional g9x that I gave to my GF but would love a new one :)

Guys, the G9x is only desirable because it's elusive,  and the Fanbois/Hipsters cash in on being Outsiders/Unique by (Talking about it)

It's like the Goth kids at school,  it's a matter of carving out a special identity, more so than actual mouse performance.


OVERALL.. There's nothing terribly special about the G9x.

The Gpro, G100s,G203,G302,G303,G305 all have roughly the same profile which match the grip/usage scenarios of the G9x..

And the 3366 is tuned by Logitech, so you know it Wurkz g00d,  whereas the off the shelf 336x versions don't have that verification expertise by our lord/savior François Morier

Apple Trackpad is probably the best for general purpose to me, I've struggled to switch off to Windows/Linux distro due to their lack of seamless experience as the trackpad on macOS.

I also have the Wacom CTH480 which is also very good for handwriting, sketching, and photoshop, but it's far from good as the trackpad in general use. Otherwise, in the worst case, I think Apple has educated me so well on their products.  :-\

For occasional gaming, I have Steelseries rival 100 which is nothing fancy but generally very good.

I can only imagine what libinput (linux touchpad solution) is like with Apple products. I have a hard enough time with libinput and (sans Linux Mint..) Windows based products.

TP4, there is nothing more elusive about the G9x than any other discontinued mouse.  People still talk about it because the shape is unique (all three of them).  The mice you listed do not really feel the same other than in the generic "you can use them for claw/fingertip" sense (the Zowie ZA13 actually feels closer to the G9x precision grip profile I'd say). 

Shape is king; 3360 OEMs/knockoffs are fine since the sensor is good out of the box and doesn't require tuning to mitigate flaws like older/lesser sensors do (well, unless you use a high CPI which even logitech couldn't remove the smoothing from).  Obviously logitech will provide better software and have better QC, but unless a company actively adds smoothing or something, a generic 3360 should perform about the same.  To me, shape is king so I'll take a great sensor with shape I love over a slightly greater sensor with shape I find decent.


Also Atlas I just placed the order a couple days ago so it'll be a while before I get it, but I'll give some impressions.  It doesn't come with the shells though, so you'd need to buy some from ebay.

Yes. Those are horrid with how they force out your right fingers to an unnatural grip angle.

I'm currently using my g402 with the Joe Blow ergonomic fix for the "sniper" button. I still rarely use the button, but at least it doesn't irritate the hell out of my thumb now.
