Wooo, I remembered stuff!
I'll be honest. I read that somewhere and took it for granted. I haven't studied science in years, but it did seem a little strange to me.
It is however my opinion that wired mice can offer better performance than wireless mice.
I have G5 and I happy with using this.
i have a OEM microsoft sidewinder payed $30 less for it than one in the box, it has never been used, but by me. i love it its so bomb
OK all the pro gamers use wired mice!
Why = no battery to change or input lag, trust me after you have done it a few times you get bored of it...
Still using My Logi MX518 geat, prefer to all others - the scroll wheel is just the right size for me...
G9 user here, I like have the different grips to switch between depending on game type. Plus I like being able to change the led colors .
I have a habit of walking away with whatever is in my hand at the time and then absently putting it down somewhere.
I "lose" cellphones and TV remotes frequently enough to be quite annoyed with myself. So a wired (i.e. "tethered")
mouse is the only answer for me. I use a Razer Viper. For me "lag" is the amount of time I spend looking for a device.
I have a Sharkoon and really am not a fan of it.
It is a bit tetchy and does not perform particularly well when gaming,
Maybe the shape is the problem but I regret not buying a better mouse.
Definitely try a few out, at the end of the day you use your mouse a fair amount so make sure you are comfortable.
Not too late to convert...
After having the G9 for awhile, the G5, which it replaced, is at best decent.
Don't ever buy a Microsoft Sidewinder mouse, unless you have Sasquatch hands and your parents are double-jointed contortionist. It's that big and the buttons are that out of place
i see its a bit late to venture an opinion as he has already ordered a g5, but i'll still add my vote to the G9 posse - i love a heavier mouse, so the weights cartridge in the g9 is great (got it as heavy as it can be, glides so smooth over my func1030 [off topic, anyone know where u can get func mousepads these days? mines a bit worn out but i couldnt find any uk retailers when i looked to replace it recently]).
I also find the "on the fly" dpi switching really handy as i tend to play fps games with a high sens except for when sniping when i drop it down with a touch of a button for better accuracy.
Being able to match the led colours on it to the rest of my setup is also awesome!
