I'm leaning a little toward the first two, with the third as another option.

Thanks,

I don't see a "witch" mouse, but out of those three id get the G7.

Depends on what you are trying to do.

The revolution is by far the BEST mouse I have ever used, but it's not a gaming mouse.

I would go with the G7 hands down. The revolution looks like it would cramp your hand trying to game with it, and the other just looks too gimmicky for me. I hate gimmicky.

Don't get a G7 wireless for gaming. Get a G5.

MX Revolution is PURE awesome for surfing.

That third option you listed is ugly as ****.

Why not?

If you try to argue with the wireless = lag stuff, its rubbish, i though the same till i bought a G7.

Because of the interchangeable weights. I'm leaning toward the g7 because it's wireless. I didn't see the g5 because I excluded wired from my search.

Anything wireless needs batteries. Corded mice (G5) DON'T.


if you are hellbent on a wireless gaming mouse, get G7.

I'm not concerned about batteries.

And does that interchangeable weight system on the G5 work as advertised?

My friend has it and he never uses them. He does use the on the fly DPI changing, however.

+1 I had an MX1000 as my gaming mouse and it works good, but the sleep timer is too short so sometimes it would go to sleep when you didn't want it to. The G7 is a nice mouse, but I hear the battery time isn't as high, and if you forget to put the thing on the charger, it can run out of battery and you can't do anything about it cause you can't swap the battery. I've had the MX1000 down to red, but thankfully it has never died on me in the middle of something, but my friends have had it die before.

Yes, it does work quite well actually. If you look at the bottom of the G5/G7you'll see it has really large feet on the mouse, so it slides really well. The G5 without any weights is quite light and IMO slides too well which makes it hard to precise movement. I add 4 1.7g weights, one for each corner and you can feel the difference it makes. The mouse has a little more drag which makes it easier for me to control. If you switch between a heavy mouse like the MX1000 or G7 that has a battery pack, the G5 feels incredibly light. When you pack it with the 4.5g weights it feels almost as heavy as a wireless mouse. Personally that is another reason why I liked the wired better because the mouse is a little lighter and easier to slide.

BTW, the G7 gets my vote. It's an awesome mouse. On the fly DPI changing rules. :D

Wow, G7 is only $70, used to be 100. Anyways, if you want cordless, G7 is the best gaming mouse currently available. For corded, both G5 and DeathAdder are great, and both can be set to have a 1000Hz polling rate.

Here's my take. I still use my mx1000 for gaming. Used the G-7, didn't quite like it and I just couldn't live without my back AND forward buttons.

For everything non-gaming, I use my MX Revolution. I use my middle-click button a lot and because of the way the fly-wheel operates on the revolution, I simply can't use it on that mouse. Therefore I stick to using my 1000 for gaming exclusively and it works great.

If you don't use your middle-mouse click button, the Revolution is a more than adequate product and the shape is the most comfortable/ergonomic shape I have ever used. For right-handers at least ;)

I realise this could just be down to bad luck. I think the G7 is the best mouse I ever used... however, after 6 months I got the triple clicking problem (left mouse button does extra clicks - double instead of single, triple instead of double). I have seen other threads on this and other forums and someone even produced a test program to prove it for rma purposes!

The replacement arrived and lasted about 3 months before it died completely... that one went in the bin and I got a razer copperhead. I like it a lot, but sometimes you have to unplug and plug it to get it to work again (known fault).

Oh yeah, and the batteries on the G7 required recharging more and more frequently even over the few months I had them!

Well I couldn't find what you're looking for, but is this close enough?

+1. I've had that MX Rev, and took it back. That mouse is not a mouse for everyday use.

You had an issue with the Revolutions ergonomics?
