    We try out a simple mod to reduce the weight of a ~$50 mouse so it competes with Logitech's much lighter $150 flagship G Pro Wireless.

      ​@Stanisław Szczypuła We were talking about 35" 144Hz 1000nits panels. Those cost few times more than a cheap ass HP panel from recycled pet plastic...

      @TheZoonder "People are still buying TN panels for gaming and the VA is half the price of an IPS. " I have HP 24f an 24" 75 Hz IPS monitor that cost me 130 Euro. I didn't see any VA panel for half of this. AND I rather have IPS.

      They use much faster polling rates and much more sensitivity for gaming. Even a Bugatti Chiron can burn up its whole petrol reserve in 10 minutes at maximum speed...

    when comparing the gpro wireless with the g305, the biggest factor you should be considering is the hand size and the grips you use. you didn't go over that at all.

    Make mouse better? You mean lighter by changing the battery.
    It's all subjective and you could have informed us with this in a single tweet.

  • Jacob Prescott

    So many people whining about the lack of 3D printed mouse skins. While I would def like to see something like that in the future, the fact is that most of the weight differential was in the battery anyway. Maybe, (now try to follow me on this) just maybe, the video isnt about awesome 3D printers, but instead how a simple modification to a mouse can make it come close to another mouse that is $100 more expensive, and that just maybe, that information alone may be valuable to consumers.. Wild theory, I know, but it just might be true.

    IDK about those testers but I had this G305 since it first came out. I love the weight and the low height. It is really preference. The sensors are the same as far as performance. I have tested all the wireless Logitechs and Razer mices. Returned all of them and gave the Lancehead away. Only the G305's shape did not give me hand fatigue.

    I'm so far from relating to "pro" mouse weight(?) concerns. It feels like an April Fools joke.

  • ProblmSolvd

    I have the opposite issue... I like my mice big and heavy.
    The Rat7 was the most comfortable mouse I've ever used, I even looked past it's garbage sensor.
    Whenever I get a new mouse I always look for something with adjustable weights, I then take those weights to a hardware store and find something with the same diameters but made of a heavier material like lead.

    I've had the g305 for almost 8 months and haven't had to change the lithium battery once the sensor is amazing and you can't notice the delay but I am going to switch to the model o- for the weight, rgb and comfort because I don't really like the ambidextrous design to it and it's much lighter.

    Seems like the G203 is also an identical wired mouse, like the G Pro Wired. Much cheaper, but the sensor isn't as good as the pro, but if you want yours wired instead of wireless, perhaps the way to go

    And then fail to mention that the mouse works perfectly fine and weighs less without the cover on, and for me feels even better in my hand . cmon guys ....

    1) The title of this video assumes that you have a mouse with replaceable battery
    2) In that case, just title it "How to make your G305 as light as G-Pro Wireless for CHEAP", that way you cut straight to the chase and less clickbait.
