Logitech G700s Gaming Mouse Review

Hey guys, What’s up. Tyler here and today
I’m bringing you guys my review of the Logitech G700s Mouse from the Logitech G series. A
huge thanks to Logitech for sending this out for review. Make sure you go to their site
and check out some of their products. And so The Logitech G700s is one of the many
mice Logitech offers from the Logitech G series, and this one comes with a bunch of features.
It can be wired or wireless, has 13 different programmable buttons and controls, and has
5 different profiles you can choose on the mouse. With the mouse you get a usb cable, the wireless
receiver, and receiver extender. So let’s talk about functionality and build
of the mouse. Like I said, there are 13 different buttons, and 5 different profiles. There are 4 buttons on the left side of the
mouse. Three buttons on the top left
A button that locks the mouse wheel Profile changing button
Traditional right and left click Mouse wheel with left scroll click, center
click, and a right scroll click Each of the buttons are numbered so you can
know which ones you are programming when you are in the Logitech Gaming Software on your
computer. As far as the design, it is fairly comfortable
and seems to mimic almost directly, the design of the Logitech Performance Mouse MX, which
is the mouse I used prior to this one. It fits in the hand well, and all buttons are
relatively easy to access. The only one that is a bit awkward to hit
is the G11 button on the top. On the sides of the mouse there is a textured
plastic to add grip, but it feels a bit gritty. When I first put my hand on it, I thought
my hand was dirty until I realized that was the grip on the mouse. I’m not a big fan of
it, but after using it a few weeks, I’ve gotten used to it and don’t really notice it at all
now. On the bottom. The mouse has 4 sliders that
enable it to glide on surfaces, an on/off switch on the bottom, and access to the rechargeable
AA battery. So how does it perform? All buttons are very
clicky, aren’t hard to use at all, and don’t get accidentally pressed. When I’ve used other
mice, sometimes I would accidentally press the right click with my hand just resting
on it, but I haven’t had this issues with this mouse. Everything physically and mechanically
about the mouse works great, and I have no real issues besides the texture and awkward
G11 button. Now let’s talk software. When you get the
G700s you are prompted to go to Logitech’s website to download the Logitech Gaming Software.
From there, you can change a ton of settings for the mouse.
At first it can be a little overwhelming with all of the options, but if you just go over
one thing at a time, starting with the different profiles, it isn’t too hard to figure out.
As you can see you have a lot of different options for the different buttons and the
only ones you really can’t change are the left and right mouse click. You can unassign
buttons as well to give them no function at all. You also have the ability to import and
export profiles if you would like to. So you could have a profile that is extremely
tuned to your gaming desires and then also have a profile where simply the left and right
click work and nothing else. A lot of possibilities, but I’m pretty simple,
so I only use one or two profiles since I’m the only one on this computer. Now I want to talk about one more thing before
we wrap up the review, and that’s battery life. The battery life for this mouse with
the battery that is shipped with it isn’t great at all. I get 3 days, MAYBE 4 at the
max using it all day with gaming every now and then throughout the day. I expect more
from a mouse, because plugging it in to recharge every 3 days gets old. I only had to charge
my Performance mouse once a week, if that. But I understand that it’s a gaming mouse
and does a lot more functions, but still I expected better. Fortunately though, the battery
is not sealed in and you can replace it with a better rechargeable AA battery if you choose
to. Overall, I think the Logitech G700s is a great
mouse. It worked as soon as I plugged it in as regular mouse and as soon as I downloaded
the Logitech Gaming Software I had no problems adjusting the settings for the different buttons. The price comes in at $80 on Amazon. The Performance
Mouse MX is only 72, so really in comparison you can’t complain about the price. you are
getting a comfortable mouse with a lot of possible configurations with multiple profiles.
For only a couple more dollars you are getting a lot more features. Great for gaming, would
definitely recommend it. Thats gonna wrap up this review, let me know
