IT IS VERY NICE AND IT IS HEAVY BUT IT IS NOT BEATIFUL
I bought this mouse on clearance and it was not what I expected. This was my fault though, I thought that the two buttons bellow the left mouse button were programmable, they are actually used to switch between profiles. This does not change the fact that it is a great mouse, I was just a little surprised when I first got it. This mouse has a number of unique features that my previous mouse did not, my favorite is the scroll wheel. It can be changed to spin freely and not click like other mice, it is great for scrolling on long webpages. The mouse wheel also clicks from side to side to switch between tabs on the browser, combined with the forward and back buttons it makes surfing the internet easy and enjoyable. My only complaint is with the lighting, it has a color changing light to differentiate between profiles and DPI settings. But there is no option to turn off the lighting or change the intensity of it making it very distracting when I am trying to watch a movie or not use my computer. Durability I am starting to wear the back of the mouse down, it is no longer smooth like it was before though it still functions fine. Design I wish they would have included a grip that is longer, it is the right width for my hands but I prefer longer mice. Comfort Same as the design comment, it is comfortable to use but I would prefer an option for a longer grip.
I have used many mice in my day. I am 23 years old and started using computers at age 2. I have seen the mouse progress from the old sticky balls that you had to clean off, to optical mouses, and then to laser mouses. I have owned all kinds of microsoft and logitech ball mice, and several logitech optical mice. This one takes the cake. There are many features that make it better than some. If you are looking for a ton of buttons though, you will want to go with something else. This mouse has built in settings to change sensitivity for different users, or even for different uses on the computer by calbirating them in the setup and then activating them by pressing the buttons on the mouse. It only features two side buttons on the left side for gaming or for use with web browsing etc. The scroller is very controllable and consistent. Also, you can use the mouse in 3 different hand grip styles. The first is just 'naked' with no grip on-- for those who like small mice, and then there are two different grips you can attach and unattach easily to suit your personal needs. The precision of this mouse is great and it never lags or never loses connection. The cord is USB and is very thick and made with fabric around it to make sure it doesnt break I would suggest this mouse to anyone. Performance Great mouse. Nuff said. Durability Strong as hell. I've beaten it off the desk a few times ;) Design You can choose your own style. Fits great, made for gaming in mind. Comfort 3 grips, and smooth use.
This Logitech G9x mouse is the best mouse I have ever used and is a great choice. The overall feel of this mouse is really good and only gets better when you factor in the changeable grips to customize the size and feel of it for you. The changeable DPI is very helpful, especially when playing games. I love the ability to change the mouse wheel to smooth scroll whenever I want. The side buttons are in a perfect spot as well. The performance of this is amazing. It is very smooth and the Logitech software really makes this mouse stand out. Oh and it comes with extra weight to add to it if you see fit.

The Logitech G9X is a mouse that will appeal to some while putting others off. It is a mouse that you either love or you hate. This has to do with the fact that it is designed differently. A lot of times the Logitech G500 is compared to this mouse. They are for different types of people though and your grip determines which one is better for you. If you prefer the standard type of mouse then you are probably better off with the Logitech G500. If on the other hand you have a more unique type of grip on your mouse then the G9X will probably be better suited for you. Regardless both mouse are very high quality and they both function exceptionally and have amazing durability. They really can last for a long time without breaking down. The G9X has different covers available which is nice; it is customizable to some degree. It is a mouse that you either love or hate and mostly people love it.

Like I mentioned in the previous reviews, I am a big fan of Logitech's input devices. Logitech has changed the form factor of the MX700, G5, G7, MX518, G500 to the G9 and G9x series as their former top of the line gaming mouse. (The most current one is the G700...) The form of the G9/G9x fits better for smaller hands especially for most of the people from Asian countries. Instead of holding the mouse in your palm, on G9 and G9x, your hands are like 'clawing' onto the mouse which in my opinion, I felt I have better grip and control over the mouse. The placement of the dpi adjustment is about just right, even though I don't do a lot of gaming, I find it extremely useful when you have a screen with extremely high resolution. I had 3007wfp before in which it has QWUXGA (2560x1600) resolution. The dpi adjustment is extremely useful when you have a lot of graphic or CAD assignments to work with. It's easier to modify in a small area with lower dpi while use higher dpi for normal use.
I bought G9x to replace my old MX518 when it was on sale. I had little info about this mouse back then but Logitech has always been top in the line. G9x might be unique for its size and shape in the G series mouse line. All others are shaped like MX518. To them G9x looks like an alien. It's short and fat, with asymmetric body. It takes some time for your hand to get used to it. Pros: It has 2 different grips. Wide Load one with smooth & soft surface and Precision one with small dotted hard rubber surface. I personally prefer the former as it has a thumb rest. I'm not a professional player so there's no much sweat, quite comfortable on the grip. Weight tuning system. As a small mouse it's a bit light. By adding some weight it works better for your personal preference. LED light. My old MX518 doesn't have this. It looks cool in the night, together with my G15 keyboard. And you can change the color. There're 5 levels of DPI setting, and you can even save your own into the small chip in the mouse. So when you plug it to another machine, you can still have your setting. Thumb buttons. It has a better design and material than MX518's. Cons: Scroll button. Maybe this is the largest issue of G9x. As I said before, G9x is unique in the line, so they add this 2-modes scroll. Regular mode is a bit tight, and it really sucks when you want to push down. Free mode enables you to fast scroll up & down. You can even let it roll like a wheel. But again, it's out of control. Laser. Some users report their G9x die because laser doesn't work. I haven't met this problem, even if I have, I can easily get a replacement by Logitech. Hope not.

This mouse is fairly short, so people who "claw" or "grip" their mice with their fingers sharply bent will enjoy it the most. Users who "palm" the mouse, will find their fingers stick out a little. I'm a gripper so it's not an issue for me. This is a great mouse otherwise. one of logitechs top quality gaming mice. A lot of buttons and weights gives for a customizable gaming experience. Logitechs wonderful support and warranty back it up in full. I actually had one of these go bad on me. I contacted logitech expecting a huge ordeal, having to pay shipping costs and waiting forever, etc. A few days after i contacted them, i found a brand new g9 in my mailbox. WOW!! now thats service. It's unlikely yours will go bad, but if it does, logitech will support you. and thats why i buy so much logitech, haha. Either way if you game a lot you really can't go wrong with this mouse. Just keep in mind it may not be the greatest ideal for "palmers", if that makes any sense.
I was a bit skeptical at first when a friend said buy this mouse. But I did and it was great advice. It isn't the coolest looking mouse but the functionality and adjustability is unbelievable. I especially like how on the fly you can adjust how sensitive it is making it super easy to do fast large movements or very precise ones. The adjustable weight is nice too and the different hand grips were icing on the cake. Basically you can make this mouse exactly what you want it to be including LED color, weight and size. One suggestion take your time and try out the different options, it may take awhile to figure out your perfect combination, which also includes dpi resolution. The cable included is long, a bit to long for my application but I could see if you have a tower computer it would be needed (I use a iMac but actually plug the mouse into a logitech G110 keyboard). Installation was a snap, totally plug and play. I have been using it now for several months and it seems very durable, and even if you use it crazy amounts you can always just buy a new case and its good as new!

I have always been an avid and long time computer user. Over the years I have increased my computer usage time during the day, but never gave any thought to my peripherals that I use every day on it. That is until one day when my clicking finger started to have problems. It could cramp, and be in a somewhat dull pain whenever I used the computer. I tried using the computer for less time daily, but it happened regardless. I tried this logitech G9x gaming laser mouse at a friends house and I was suprised at what a light click and comfortable grip it had. I decided to dish out the money and spend on a nice mouse. I've got to say that I am very happy with my decision. The pain in my clicking finger has subsided almost totally. The only time it slightly comes back is when I have a real extreme day on the mouse, such as highly repetitive clicking games or activities. Overall this is a very good mouse for the money I am glad I got it and would recommend it to anyone that is on the edge about buying a new mouse.
