Hands down, *THE* greatest MACRO mice – G700 and G700s [UPDATE] Added G700 + G700s comparison photo links (see below).I’ve been using the G700 for home and work – first for home exclusively, then for both home *and* work, and now just for work. I was able to use it for both because of its portability, especially the BUILT-IN MEMORY – a very important feature which I’ll discuss below.I got a Corsair Vengeance M95 for home to replace the G700, and I have to say quite frankly, I missed the G700. The G700 was more ergonomic – most especially with the buttons. After a month of using the Corsair, I thought I’d give the G700s a shot. I still use the G700 at work, for writing codes.What I Like (G700/G700s):(+) Hands down, highest button count mouse that is *still* very ergonomic.(+) Dual mode SCROLLING: free scroll or click-scroll(+) Dual mode: wired, or wireless(+) Scroll wheel TILT. It is surprising that this feature is not a standard.(+) Very polished software (for programming the mouse).(+) Wireless TRANSCEIVER. Most other wireless mice only offer a receiver (1-way).(+) Uses standard AA battery – which means user replaceable, and HOT-SWAP able.(+) Ability of keys to be used as modifier keys (CTRL, ALT, SHIFT)(+) Multiple simultaneous button presses.(+) ON-BOARD MEMORY Profiles: This feature is very, very important, for it [1] Reduces lag because [2] there is NO background service running (key binding) and, [3] there is no dependence to software which means, [4] it is usable EVERYWHERE (even on the Windows Lock Screen) and [5] increased portability.What I don’t like:(-) Thick cable for wired mode – however, this means it is durable. Based on experience, durability is a good thing.(-) A bit expensive as of this writing (because the product is still new)(-) Cheesy, non-functional graphics. Personally, I prefer the G700’s stealth black look.(-) No lighting, though understandable to improve battery life.(-) No weight customization – we can’t have it all.(-) The USB transceiver and USB wire uses separate USB ports (cannot be combined like Razer Mamba).(-) No real, useable difference with the G700.(-) Still needs a mouse pad.Differences between G700 and G700s:(±) The graphics. I personally like the G700’s plainer look.(±) The top surface. Well, the feel and material looks the same, but now with the said graphics.(±) The side surface. G700s feels and looks more polished: rougher, looks tougher, and less plasticity (more metal-like)(±) The click-scroll scroll wheel. G700s has less “click” to it. It seems softer/easier to click-scroll. I personally prefer the G700’s stronger, more pronounced clicks.(±) Scroll wheel tilt. Like the previous difference, this has a softer click for scroll tilt clicking.(±) Scroll mode selector. When selecting free-scroll, it actually feels like it is letting go of the scroll locking. I personally prefer the G700’s same feel on selecting either mode.Why 5 stars? Because no one else comes close. Its shortcomings are very minor when compared to its advantages.VERDICT: I recommend this product. OR, get the G700 which is cheaper.·UPDATE: [G700 + G700s]Here are the photo’s I have taken (Uploaded to Amazon Product Images).http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B00BFOEY3YIndividual Photos:http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/permalink/mo1U9NA5YG0H40H/B00BFOEY3Yhttp://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/permalink/moB4JXT7Y7EJLW/B00BFOEY3Yhttp://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/permalink/mo2VTXZKHAVUHGT/B00BFOEY3Yhttp://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/permalink/mo3HYG4OT1U8AGY/B00BFOEY3Yhttp://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/permalink/mo3594ERJHMQJ9B/B00BFOEY3Yhttp://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/permalink/mo1439N674VRWDV/B00BFOEY3Y

It is good…. Kinda feels like it was made for ME. Extremely comfortable. I use this precision mouse for photo editing. It is very precise (up 8200 dpi, whereas the older/original version of the G700 maxes at 5700 dpi). To increase the speed of my workflow, I have added a trackball mouse for my left hand side when certain organic lines require even higher precision. But regarding a comparison on speed, this mouse is FAST: I am finding that zooming in and out is much more efficient in PS with this mouse than with the trackball mouse.This mouse is wireless, but I choose to use it wired-in only, as I don’t want to experience any hitches in my workflow. I haven’t yet needed to program this mouse (13 programmable options), as my keyboard already has 54 programmable key options on the left side of my keyboard, allowing me to use this mouse mainly for pinpointing anchor spots in PS. There is, though, a clutch feature on this mouse that I utilize.I find that if I use this mouse mostly for precision movement, and use my left hand for some trackball maneuvers + all programmed multi-step or keyboard stroke maneuvers (including ENTER, DELETE, Wand Tool, Pen Tool, ‘Make Selection’, etc.), that my workflow is the fastest it has EVER been. My PRIOR workflow speed and comfort does not even come close to what it is now. I have also ordered a foot pedal mouse that will take over the left-click mouse action of this G700 mouse to further increase my speed and precision (as well as alleviating tension of my hands during long hours of work). I expect that adding the foot pedal mouse for use of all left-click action will likely add another significant boost to my workflow.If you are working on anything requiring speed and absolute fluidity (including gaming), this mouse is an excellent addition to your repertoire of peripheral devices.I am happy…
