Windows 7: Logitech G5 or G9

Logitech G5 or G9

Hey guys,

I am looking at getting a new mouse because my Logitech G5 finally gave in after being thrashed.
I am already thinking I will just get another G5 because it was such a good gaming/general use mouse, but I have also been eye-ing off the G9.
Has anyone used both mice before and find one to be better than the other? Let me know.

Cheers
Murty!

Logitech have just announced the G500 to replace the G5.

I've been looking at getting the G9 but now the G500 is making me change my mind.

I have a G9 and it's a great mouse and very comfortable in your hand, the only thing I don't like about it is the cord is so stiff on it ant it doesn't route through the bottom of my G15 keyboard very well either because the cord is also too skinny.

Looking at the G500 I think that it would also be a good mouse but it also looks like it has the same sort of annoying lead on it and I'm not too keen on the texture or colour of the plastic either, the one thing I really like on my G9 is the feel and the changeable covers.

- the G9 is a beautiful product
- perfectly weighted, super-smooth and very, very accurate..

Thanks heaps for your feedback guys. I guess I'm also asking, is the G9 worth paying an extra $40 for?

in my opinion, yes
if you're like me - you spend a lot of your time at the PC,
so it makes sense to get the best - you only pay once..

- you can be happy from then on..

Yeah I think that may be the difference, I don't actually spend that much time infront of my computer these days. Maybe a few hours of gaming a week. At this stage I will probably just wait for the G500 to come out. Any ideas of when it is due out?

I love mine as well and I bought an extra grip and the bottom feet. It would be neat to upgrade to the G9x but not sure it would really be worth the trouble

Something to play with for the Logitech users among us, Windows Vista Gadgets & Yahoo! Widgets Says for Vista, but haven't come across one yet that doesn't work on 7. The keyboard and mouse battery ones look interesting, would test them if mine were wireless.
