After a few weeks of abuse, we are ready to review the Logitech G9x laser gaming mouse. This mouse brings back memories to old trusty G5 Laser mouse. The G9x laser gaming mouse brings an excess of great features. Interchange grip control, onboard memory, on the fly adjustable DPI and weight-tuning system. The G9x packaging is reasonably large and follows Logitech’s green and black theme. Alongside the manual and driver/software CD packing you’ll also receive the additional grip and weights for the mouse.
When you first look at the mouse the design looks to be a bit bizarre but when you hold it with your hands it gives you a great feeling of control and it gets better. The interchangeable grip allows you to drop that smooth surface the mouse original comes with and allows you to replace it with a textured grip. The textured grip is not rough enough to feel like you are holding a piece of sand paper but gritty enough to where it won’t slip of your hands when you build some moisture. The bottom pads give the mouse a gentle glide over your mouse pad but other flat surfaces will work just as well.
The forward and back rockers are positioned in an extremely comfortable position in reach of your thumb without the feeling that you may accidently press it. The scroll button has a smooth glide as you use it and its placed high enough where you won’t press on the right or left mouse button. Right bellow the left mouse button you will find the DPI rocker. This is a poorly placed rocker considering you have to let go of your left mouse button in order to adjust DPI sensitivity not to mention that the rocker itself is extremely narrow, you could end up hitting the left mouse button in the process. The weight tuning system is inside the mouse, you will have to take the exterior surface off in order to make adjustments. This was a bit awkward seeing that you would like to get a feel for the mouse with the weights and you have to take the exterior shell off every time you want to tune it.
In conclusion, the Logitech G9x is a considerably small gaming mouse compared to other vendors but fits well on large hands. It is a heavy mouse with no weights but the best part is you can make it heavier using the weights provided in the package. The performance while gaming is amazing and shows large improvements over older models. The build quality is excellent and the USB cable is durable overall design is outstanding besides the weight tuning system. The mouse is ready to go out of the box to the point that the provided software isn’t really needed. The software does give you the ability to change profiles using the mouse on the fly once you take the time to set it up.
