Logitech G700s Wireless Gaming Mouse Review – Design & Features
From the first glance, it looks like a large gaming mouse and I was a bit hesitant. I never had good experience with one before; they are either hard to grip or feel heavy to the swipe. Surprisingly, the Logitech G700s feels really good and comfy to use.
The thumb rest area feels spacier than any mouse I reviewed before in the past and seems to be sweat-proof (though I’m testing this mouse in winter). The palm area is also coated with hydrophobic coating, according to Logitech, which prevents your hand from sticking on the surface. The material also seems to provide an anti-slip surface.
Overall, it is as if the mouse contour conforms to my palm and fingers. It’s sturdy, comfortable, and feels good.
The Logitech G700s are packed with buttons without being too overwhelming. They are located on the exact positions where you want them. For example, I’ve never accidentally pressed them but the buttons are always reachable. Besides the usual left-middle-right mouse buttons, you have 4 extras on the side, 3 on the top corner, and 2 more near the middle button. If you take a closer look at the buttons, they look asymmetrical – this is to ensure good accessibility to your fingers.
By default, you can use the top 3 buttons on the corner to change your sensitivity levels and also to check the current battery level. The information is conveyed through the 3 tiny LEDs (so you practically need to remember what DPI level you set earlier on the software because there is no other visual feedback). The one that looks like a “Refresh” button is a toggle for the dual-mode scrolling.
To recharge the included AA Rechargeable battery, simply hook the cable into the G700s. You can also use the mouse while the battery is being recharged. The process of plugging/unplugging the cable is relatively very simple, much simpler than the Razer Mamba. Going from wired to wireless also happens instantly, just like when you wake the mouse up from standby.
For longer and more crucial gaming sessions, you can always carry extra AA batteries and use them with the mouse. The Logitech Nano receiver can also be stored inside the battery compartment – which makes the G700s really handy for mobile gaming.
The cable, unfortunately, feels stiff and heavy. I often find it hard to navigate with the mouse at times because of the friction made by the cable and my desk. Thankfully, recharging the battery to its peak seems to only take a few hours. This means you can leave it overnight to charge itself and use the mouse again wireless on the next day. Battery can last around 5-8 hours, depends on what you use the mouse for (can even last around 3-4 days when I only used it for desktop work + movie watching about a few hours a day)
Being wireless, the mouse itself is very responsive. When playing First Person Shooter games, it didn’t feel as if I was using a wireless mouse. There was no lag and clicks were instantly registered. You can also set the DPI all the way to 8,200 if you like. The G700s also has an on-board memory to store gaming profiles. All in all, the Logitech G700s is a very solid wireless gaming mouse that delivers performance and comfort.
