Logitech G700s Rechargeable Gaming Mouse Testing:
The Logitech G700s Rechargeable Gaming Mouse was defiantly put through over a week of use and testing. During this time it was used it in everyday use, surfing the internet, photoshopping and of course some gaming. As a mouse is personal to each and every individual so how it responds in these various tasks is important in different ways to everyone. This rather subjective review is best to provide you the feedback from use rather than assigning made up numbers trying to compare one mouse to another. It's pretty easy to distinguish the likes and dislikes of a mouse through words rather than leaving it to you to decide what a 7 or 8 really means. No guessing game – here's what I liked, and here's what I hated.

Logitech G700s Rechargeable Gaming Mouse Results:
Generally speaking the G700s from Logitech does well on the everyday aspect of things. The only difficulty for me was remembering to turn off the mouse when I was done for the night or was walking away to make some food without returning for several hours. It ultimately took its toll on the battery life and I found myself having the mouse plugged in more often than I expected. At least I knew where the cable was each time it died; but the issue was again using the cable. I didn't like the cable, it was stiff and didn’t want to take on a new shape. I made a mess of my desk, but the mouse worked. I feel the concept is there for continued use just not quite executed to the best standards. Plugged in or not the mouse was fully effective as an everyday mouse – the price, on the other hand, doesn't allow this to be the only purpose for having this mouse – hence the "gaming" portion of its name perhaps.
For work it seems like this is more my everyday than not, but nonetheless breaking it into this category it was quick to catch on. The few extra buttons allowed me to set up some shortcuts that saved me a few clicks here and there and allowed me to be at least a little efficient while working. With the easy-to-adjust DPI settings, both in-software and by macro, it was really easy to get the precision I needed to get things done. Ultimately the mouse functioned quite well, and when I was using it wirelessly, it let me sit back a bit and relax as I got work done as well while using new parts of my desk most mice don't accommodate!
Gaming is where the real hammer came down with this mouse. Labeled as such I could expect a few flaws on the everyday use or working settings (though would be disappointed to see such), but when it comes to gaming – no slack allowed. Again the sense of having no strings attached was awesome. I never had problems getting caught up on things or just missing a shot because I wasn't using a mouse bungee. The ability to plug in while the battery was charging was one of the biggest features I appreciated most while gaming. Though I didn't like the cable, and won't bash on it more here, it was nice to be able to plug in between missions and keep going after a full day's worth of game play. The feet slid effortlessly, making it easy for the mouse and I to be one and lag? I don't think so. At the full polling rate, I'd be hard pressed to really argue a disconnect between the mouse and the headshot I just nailed; I found it to be quite connected for how literally disconnected it truly was. Honestly it was great in-game with the extra macro buttons and a rather comfortable fit.
