So my wife was reading the April PC Gamer (she's very excited about Doom and No Man's Sky) and she showed me an ad with a case she really liked with rainbow lights on it.  I didn't really feel like getting her a new case but she did desperately need a new keyboard so I went to Best Buy and got her the Logitech G810 and I am very impressed by it.

Also while I was there I tried out the G302 and G502 and I was pleasantly suprised that they actually seem pretty comfortable.  Though I was disappointed that they didn't have a G402 for sale or on display.  Made me wonder if they are phasing those out for the inevitable 400 series upgrade with a 3366 sensor.

Perhaps but the Best Buys (by me at least) always only have limited mice on display.  How do you like the feel of the Romer G switches?  They're quiet and that bugs some people.

Ruh, roh?!  They updated the M65 to Pro with a PixArt 336X optical sensor.

Hey Regs, the G502 is a great mouse, thats the mouse that i use and Im very impressed with it. I dont plan on changing for a long time. It's also got weights in it so you can make it a heavy or light mouse, which i really like.

You seen this Regs?  Look at 1:27...it looks like they're making a new mouse with a pretty minimalistic shape.

Thanks Big.  I just saw this today because I'm completely out of the loop.  I like this a lot.  Looks like they want some of that Zowie/BenQ market share.  Now they just need one that is bigger and ergonomic.

I haven't bought a new mouse for years.

Attention mouse manufacturers who are clearly reading this thread religiously  Please stop doing exactly what I say.  I don't have enough cash.

Now it just needs a physical DPI and refresh rate selector...

Well it's close enough.  Damn you, Razer.  Damn you.

Ok so the G403 is much smaller than it looks.  I wish it were just a touch wider.  I don't like the rubber grips on the side at all.  They are very slippery to me and I can't pick up the mouse without applying a lot of pressure on the sides which usually starts hurting my ring finger after a while.  Otherwise the sensor tracks great and the button clicks are very solid.  It's definitely well built but no real surprise coming from Logitech.  Oh also the cord is a little stiff but we'll see how it loosens up after playing a while.  I'm not sure if this mouse is going to work out for me.  I really wish it was bigger and glossy instead of rubber/matte.

***

Quick update, the last word on the G403.  The sensor placement/angle is wacked out full tilt bonkers crazy.  In game I literally cannot swipe it in a straight line.  I end up way high going to the right and extremely low going to the left.  I'm not sure what the "science wins" engineers were thinking on this one.

Good to know.  I'm still rocking my ugly but fantastic G900.

I am little late to the party, but the G900 in wireless mode is by far the best mouse I have ever used.  I had the G502 for a hot second after the G9X for many years, but the G900 is the mouse that has given me the best rounds with the same poll rate and also DPI.  I don't use many mice, but when I do, I use Logitech.

Clearly, WASD is not for n00bs.

This has been my favorite mouse for a while now.  It's pretty basic but I really like it.  They are supposedly making a more ergonomic one at some point too.

http://www.nixeus.com/product/revel-gaming-mouse/

Their top product development guy, Peter, hangs out on all of the enthusiast forums (mostly OCN).  He plays a lot of games and answers most questions personally before referring folks to Nixeus tech support.

Anyway their monitors and keyboards look pretty nice too.
