Default Logitech MX™ Revolution?

I wanted to get so feedback on this mouse. Is anyone using this as a gaming mouse? Do you like this mouse? How does it work? Thanks!

I have one and it's a wonderful mouse. I prefer the G9 for game thou.

If you just want one mouse for everything it isn't a bad choice.

I returned it after a few hours of use. The clicking and the gear changing felt really awkward.

I'm using the G7 right now and love the hell out of it, but it freezes constantly driving me nuts!!!! I'm RMAing it and I have the choice of G( or MX revolution. I can't stand wired mice any more.

I tried the Rev, I found it to be a little awkward at the time, though I notice there is a mod out to customise every button, so I may reconsider it. Though the MS Sidewinder is nice too.

well i guess go for G9... ive heard of freezing with the G7 but it rarely happens to me.. the MX rev i have 2 of them and both freeze randomly for at least 1-2 seconds which makes gaming impossible

The MXR suffers from interference from wireless routers around it. Had lots of problems with mine.

The g9 is great once you get used to it. The mx series isn't really designed for gaming.

Mine May freeze up once a night for a bout 1-2 Sec, but nothing work freaking out about. I usally have a good enough lead that 1-2 sec doesn't make my "Gaming Impossible"

I for one love the mouse, feels great, and no cramping of the hands using it.

I have a MX1000 laser and have to say it is the best all round mouse i have ever had. The DPI is getting a little low for todays games though but it still serves as an excellent mouse.

I am waiting for Logitech to release a wireless version of the G9 that isnt as ugly and im sure i will purchase it, i dont want a wired mouse as it would feel like a step back after using a wireless mouse.
The mx rev isnt really that good for gaming and the side scroller is in a pretty much awkward position and useless for gaming, looks nice and is a revised mx1000 but its gaming capabilities suck.
