Logitech G700 Gaming Mouse Reviewed. Verdict: Near Perfect Balance Between Performance and Ergonomics

By Ian Chiu

Logitech has always been known for their great peripherals and have consistently released some down right marvelous mice. To many consumers when they think “mouse” they think Logitech; unfortunately, not every GAMING user thinks Logitech when think gaming mice. This is the crux of the matter, so what can Logitech do to not only outdo their past models but more importantly, entice even more jaded PC gaming aficionados away from the competition and back to Logitech?

The answer Logitech has come up with is to offer a seamless wired / wireless combination mouse with a down right whopping 13 buttons and call this beast the “G700″! The Logitech G700 gaming mouse certainly is an interesting solution and one that merits closer investigation. One thing that is now gone is the weight customization which has been with the G5, G9 and G9x. So, the mouse could be too heavy for some. The G700’s battery life also fails to impress. You could only get about six to eight hours out of the single AA battery. Perhaps this is the reason why Logitech provides a USB cable that also turns the G700 into a wired gaming mouse and at the same time re-charges the 2000mAh battery inside. The Logitech G700 isn’t perfect, but it certainly qualifies as a killer gaming peripheral as well as a all round everyday mouse. Everything USB has the full review.

Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Reviewed. Verdict: Highly Recommended Monster Mouse

Mad Catz RAT 7 mouse

By Ian Chiu

When it comes to gaming mice, or even mice in general, not much has really changed in the past couple years. Sure the number of buttons, number of programmable settings and DPI sensitivity may have increased, but when it came to the ergonomics of it, there wasn’t much you could do to change it if a given mouse didn’t fit your hand. Sure some mice allow you to swap out one sized “skin” or covering for another, but even this has always been a very clunky way of doing things and you could just as easily end up with a mouse which was too big instead of too small… or vice versa.

Mad Catz plans to change all that with their Cyborg R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse as this bad boy has more customizable features crammed into it then any mouse ever before! Don’t like where the palm swell is? Change it out for a different one or move it forwards or backwards until is does feel comfortable! Don’t like the pinkie grip? Swap it out for one of the two others which come included! Don’t like where the thumb buttons are? Move the whole freaking area until it IS comfortable. This is what the R.A.T. 7 gaming mouse is all about; or at least that is the THEORY behind it. Is the theory the same as the reality? Everything USB has the full review.
