    Logitech G5 Gaming Mouse

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    For most people, a mouse is a mouse is a mouse. This doesn’t hold true for everyone, though, especially hard-core gamers. Finding a good mouse might be comparable to finding a four leaf clover in a football field, as far as this performance-seeking bunch is concerned. Logitech believes it has the solution with the G5 Laser Mouse, and we will be taking one for a test drive today, to see how it adds up.

    To be honest, I like a good mouse myself.  I can’t stand mice without enough DPI, or mice that don’t feel comfortable in my hand.  Since I made the move to a scroll mouse, mice without wheels drive me completely batty.  And since going optical, I avoid ball mice like the plague.  That’s about as far as I have taken it, though.  But a lot of people, especially the gamers, need more.  And Logitech aims to please.

    Logitech has crammed a ton of features into this mouse.  Features I never even considered, to be quite honest. Here’s a short list:

    • 2000 dpi laser engine - An ultra-high resolution engine churns images at an astounding 6.4 megapixels per second. A massive (30-pixel by 30-pixel) sensor array and precision laser technology provides best-in-class performance and tracking.
    • In-game sensitivity switching - The G5 provides instant access to three sensitivity levels— 400 dpi, 800 dpi, and 2000 dpi—before driver installation. Shift from pixel-precise targeting to fast-twitch maneuvers, without pausing the action.
    • Adjustable weight cartridge - Adjust the G5s weight and balance (up to 36 grams) for the control you need to dominate the competition.
    • Polytetrafluoroethylene gaming feet  - Forget sticky workarounds—the G5's durable polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) feet give the ultra-smooth glide you want in a gaming mouse.
    • Full-speed USB - A 500 reports/second, bi-directional connection delivers blazing speed and instant acceleration. (For Windows® 9x and ME users only, the Logitech® SetPoint™ software will limit the report rate to 125 reports/second.)

    And that’s just the beginning.  Read along as we open the package and put this mouse through its paces.
