Logitech G1 Optical Mouse

1. Introduction

Logitech is one of the better known brand names in computer peripherals, representing high quality products. For quite some time, I had been using a Microsoft Basic Optical mouse on my desktop, and while it worked ok, it didn't feel as responsive as I would have liked. So, I decided it was time to buy a new mouse, preferably from Logitech. After checking out the entire range of models and corresponding prices, I came to the conclusion that the G1 optical mouse was probably the mouse I was looking for. Low to medium price, no extra fancy buttons and fast, with an internal 800dpi engine. Were my expectations fulfilled? You'll find out by reading this review.

According to Logitech, the G1 Optical Mouse is "...Based on the technology that powered the best-selling Logitech MX 510 Performance Optical Mouse, the Logitech G1 Optical Mouse is ideal for gamers and PC power users alike. This lightweight, ambidextrous mouse captures 5.8 megapixels of surface detail per second on a 12-bit data path (typical mice use 8-bit data paths) to deliver lag-free performance and up to 15 Gs of instant acceleration. The G1 Optical Mouse is plug-and- play, working immediately when plugged into the USB port on a desktop or notebook PC..."
