Default Logitech is awesome!

About a week ago my logitech g5 mouse started to make an odd noise sometimes whenever I left click. It wasnt really a big problem to me, but i decided to call up the company to see what they thought. After about 10 minutes on the phone they said that they were sending me a replacement mouse. The mouse they said they were sending was the version 2 of the g5 with the extra button . The best part of the whole deal is that I get to keep my old one. I just wanted to share this because I was kinda excited for my free mouse. Logitech is simply awesome! Many of you probably already know this.

My friend has the Revolution notebook edition and his started acting funky. They replaced it and he got to keep his old one too.

I just take my stuff back to EB and they swap it no questions due to some partnership with Logitech.

My original green G7 started double-clicking with the left button and Logitech sent me the updated blue G7. I also bought the MX Rev, which finally convinced me to drop wireless mice altogether and I wound up getting the G5; the one with both thumb buttons, and that is one great mouse!

Just today, I picked up the G9. The MX Rev is an awesome mouse less the wireless issues that I, and some others experience with them, but it is by no means a gaming mouse. The scrollwheel is so good though that my first impression was that if they could add the free spin wheel to a gaming mouse, I'd jump on it in a second!

Sure enough, they did! An I did

Great mouse! The feel takes a little getting used to because you can tell it may be geared for more light-handed action, but now I'm starting to understand the concept of fingertip control. I think I will like it, but time will tell. Definitely a different feel from the excellent G5 as far as ergonomics, but I don't anticipate any kind of cramping, or any sense of this mouse being uncomfortable, but it is a new mouse feel for me. It does remind me of a hyped up MX Rev as far as feel, though much lighter.

The teflon feet are softer than the G5. I don't think they are as tough as the G5 either. I was using the 'rough' side of my FUNC pad with the G5 but it seemed like it was chewing up the G9. Maybe just break-in? Nevertheless, I turned the pad over to the smooth side and the G9 glides as well as the G5 now.

I've always had mice that I could palm and get some sweat action going, but that aint gonna happen with this mouse. Weird that I'm adjusting to it so fast though. I may even switch to the smaller housing, but I kinda doubt it. I love the rubberized feel of the standard shell.

If I had any gripe at all, it would be that the scrool wheel is not as heavy as the MX Rev, but not sure why I would even gripe over that since it spins just as well, and long. Still, the heavier wheen on the MX feels better.

Great mouse, and a keeper!

And yes, Logitech support is why I do not mind buying their products.

I mailed them asking where to get new feet for my old MX700 a few years ago.
They sent me a couple for free, not much but I thought it was pretty nice.

Creative labs is the exact opposite. You have to pay for warranty, plus shipping. A guy got his speakers fixed within the warranty period, and he was charged 12 dollars for handling.

So typical of Singaporeans.

Edit: And obviously Logitech is typical of the Swiss.
