Works for both MMOs and other genres


Mice designed for massively multiplayer online (MMO) games are often unwieldy beasts. They boast more buttons than a player can use easily, & have almost no versatility for use in non-MMO games.


The Logitech G700s ($99.99) is an MMO mouse that deftly sidesteps all of these problems. Despite a few noticeable shortcomings, the G700s has a lot to offer mid-level MMO players, without compromising other genres.

Design



The G700s is, far và away, one of the most comfortable mice that we"ve reviewed. The mouse"s textured, grooved thumb-rest fit our thumb perfectly. The mouse"s shape fit our hand almost flawlessly when we played with either a palm or claw grip.


The G700s also offers nearly ideal support for any hand size, but left-handed users are out of luck: The mouse is only available in a right-hand configuration.


It would be easy to lớn get overwhelmed by the G700s" 13 buttons, but Logitech did a good job of spacing them out. In addition khổng lồ the left- và right-mouse buttons, there are four thumb buttons, three more for the index finger & one beneath the scroll wheel. The scroll wheel itself clicks in three directions.

But this wheel is the G700s" biggest weakness; unbelievably sensitive, it offers no resistance whatsoever. You"ll scroll all over the place while trying to lớn left- & right-click, until you learn to keep your fingers away from the scroll wheel. This is obnoxious enough when surfing the website or writing documents, but can be absolutely devastating in the middle of a pitched online battle.

There is a button that changes the frictionless scroll wheel to a regular, notched one. However, this button is extremely easy khổng lồ hit while attempting to lớn change dots-per-inch (DPI) sensitivity, as the two buttons are right next lớn one another.

The extra buttons are useful, but come with their own phối of caveats. The thumb buttons are distinct & easy to reach, yet without an audible click, they feel mushy and unsatisfying. The index-finger buttons are much sturdier, but the bottom two buttons feel almost identical.

The programmable button in the center of the G700s lies directly below a very similar button that controls the scroll wheel sensitivity. We hit this button over and over by accident, when we had intended instead to bring up a quest log in "World of Warcraft" or grab an tòa tháp in "BioShock Infinite."

The G700s excels in comfort, but could have offered much better usability.

Features



Like other modern Logitech gaming mice, the G700s runs on the Logitech Gaming Software program. Not quite as simple as the comparable Razer Synapse system, this software is still straightforward and robust.

The G700s supports 10 separate profiles: five stored on the mouse and five stored on a computer. You can import and export your favorite profiles online or simply keep them stored on the peripheral. In addition, you can switch between profiles by using the Logitech software or by programming a button to vì it.

One of the best features of the G700s is its ability to tải về game profiles. The Logitech software can tải về profiles for major games such as "StarCraft II" or "Borderlands," and automatically switch your mouse profile when the trò chơi launches. You"ll still have to lớn program the buttons yourself, but the profiles will give you options such as Build or Attack-Move rather than just listing the B or A keys.

The game-linking feature does have one notable flaw, however: It doesn"t work very well with "World of Warcraft." For a mouse that sells itself as an MMO peripheral, overlooking the most popular MMO on the market is problematic.

When we installed the Logitech software, it recognized most of the games on our system and downloaded the appropriate files. However, we had to tải về the "World of Warcraft" profile và assign a profile picture khổng lồ it manually. Even then, it was a struggle khổng lồ get "World of Warcraft" to recognize the profile, as the standard trò chơi shortcut did not properly liên kết profile & game.

The program"s launcher interfered with the game"s recognition of the profile, & we had to change the shortcut for the trò chơi manually. This is not difficult for anyone tech-savvy enough khổng lồ purchase an MMO mouse, but it"s still an unwanted annoyance, compared lớn how easy setting up other profiles was.

Beyond that, you can set the DPI to lớn anywhere between 200 và 8,200 in order khổng lồ customize the mouse"s tracking speed. You can even program multiple DPI settings within a single profile. This capability can be useful when switching guns in a first-person shooter, or switching from base management to offensive warfare in a real-time strategy.

Performance



Making a wireless mouse just as responsive as its wired counterparts has traditionally been very difficult, but the G700s succeeds as both a wired & a wireless peripheral. We found the mouse to be responsive, precise and accurate, whether we were working with everyday software or playing games. The only exception, as discussed above, is the fiddly scroll wheel, which gets in the way of everything.

In "BioShock Infinite," we had more than enough buttons to lớn jump, crouch, pick up items & switch weapons. Changing DPI on the fly was also helpful when mowing enemies down with a machine gun or picking them off strategically with a pistol.

The G700s worked similarly well with both "Batman: Arkham City" and "StarCraft II." Its 13 buttons were just enough to lớn program our most useful commands without completely cluttering the mouse. Gliding around as the Caped Crusader or controlling Terran armies against their Zerg foes were also simple tasks.

Once we got it configured properly, "World of Warcraft" also worked well, but the G700s is not an ideal choice for playing at high levels. Thirteen buttons are simply not enough for 10 frequently accessed skills plus a quest log, a character sheet, an inventory & whatever else a player wants khổng lồ keep close at hand.Logitech"s other MMO mouse, the G600, might make a better choice.

The G700s has respectable liftoff range và z-axis tracking. Lifting it forward or to lớn the left a few millimeters does not affect performance, although tilting it back or khổng lồ the right will stop it dead. Picking up the mouse và placing it back down will move the cursor somewhat, but this is not usually a huge concern in MMOs.
