In Use

I have used Logitech gaming mice for years and have liked them all very well. The last wireless gaming mouse I used came from Logitech and had a couple batteries that you could swap when needed to keep the mouse going. I quickly found that as much time as I spend at the computer even two batteries wasn't enough power and stopped using the mouse.

Logitech's latest wireless gaming mouse is the G700 and rather than two batteries this mouse has a charge cable that looks like a USB cable and can charge the mouse while you are playing. When the charge cable is attached, the mouse is just like any other gaming mouse with a wire as far as feel goes. The battery life you get will depend on what you do with the mouse, but I used the mouse for 12 or more hours per day for several days and still had juice.

The Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 is a right hand only design much like the other gaming mice that Logitech offers. The 13 programmable buttons can have different commands bound to them including macros and DPI changes. You have to download the Logitech software to use the programming features of the mouse. The software is updated from past versions, but works the same and is easy to use.

The mouse has onboard memory so once you program it the first time you can use it on any computer without needing the software and keep your macros and other settings. The big feature for me with the Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 is the sensitivity. I have a big 30-inch LCD and I like lots of sensitivity. The 5700 dpi setting took some getting used to, but after a while, it is great. I can move around the screen of my computer when just working with less hand movement and when it comes time to game the high sensitivity makes it faster and easier to turn to face enemies with small hand movements.

In wireless mode, I noticed no lag at all with the Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700. Lag is the enemy of any gamer and thankfully isn’t an issue here. The mouse is comfortable in the hand, but I did hit the three buttons staked right beside the left mouse button on a few occasions. This is the first mouse I have used with buttons placed there.

I realize after using the Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 that I tend to rest my finger there and grip the mouse there when using it. That means that I hit those buttons on a few occasions when just trying to move quickly around the screen. You might not have that issue, but it bothered me enough that I didn’t bind any commands to those keys. I also really liked the hyper-fast scroll wheel on the mouse. You can toggle the scroll modes between normal click and free-wheel mode using a button right behind the wheel.



  • Comfortable
  • Lots of buttons
  • High sensitivity


  • I hit the buttons next to the left click accidentally a few times
  • Right hand only


The Logitech Wireless Gaming Mouse G700 is a fantastic gaming mouse from Logitech that gamers of all sorts will like. The mouse is accurate, has great battery life, and just flat works.
