I got my G7 yesterday and I'm loving it so far. Much more precise than my old mx700 however I'm having a bit of a hard time getting used to the various sensetivity settings in game. Just wondering what you guys use? Also, although the setpoint software seems to be pretty solid it has 3 processes in task manager. Are you using setpoint and if so can any of those be disabled without breaking the functionality of the software?

When I had my G5 I stuck to 2000 dpi and lowered the sensitivity in game settings to slow it down. It was most accurate that way. I ran 2000 in the desktop so my hand/eye coordination got slightly better lol. You need all that Setpoint junk if you want special sensitivity settings.

Never got around to installing the mouse software.

if you didn't install the mouse software wouldn't it be running at one of the default settings either 2000, 800, or 4000???

I thought 2000 was the max for this mouse. Anyway, I generally use the middle setting and occasionally the highest setting for snipeing.(snowman)

2000 is the max. for the mouse. I think the mouse is programmed the same as the default settings for the setpoint. 400,800 and 2000dpi. I keep it at 2000 in apps, lower it for gaming.

Yep, just checked and you're correct. The settings are 400,800,2000 before installation.

Hmm, here's what it says on the Newegg page: On-the-fly Sensitivity Switching: Provides instant access to 3 sensitivity levels — 400 dpi, 1200 dpi, and 2000 dpi — before driver installation.

Now I'm not so sure which it is. Logitechs website says 400, 800, 2000.

it's what logitech's site says. i made a typo with "4000." oh well i think im gonna say screw setpoint. it seems to be making things more difficult. what do you mean you raise it for sniping? shouldn't you be lowering to make it easier to aim?

For myself at least the higher dpi seems to help with movement for aiming. Generally tho I just use the middle setting.
