    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.

    The guy saying that its not a 10 is basically nitpicking + having a price discrepancy bias. It has a flawless sensor and weighs 83g, that’s enough to frag out.

    My g305 has broken after 4 months usage. Its double clicking on left click button. It run out of its clicking lifetime after 4 months.. I was considering to upgrade to gpro but when I research there are some gpro users too that has the same double click issue as mine..

    I prefer g305 over wireless, just because of the shape, gpw has such a numb shape, i am not able to feel the aim and such also might be because i have small hands

  • TurboGlenn
    TurboGlenn Month ago

    The 305 is way better imo due to the inwards sloping sides making it a breeze to lift it. Almost all other mice you have to press the sides to achieve friction enough to lift which sucks imo.

      Easier to control maybe for some ? Less strain on someone who aims in shooters with their wrist and not their arm. Stuff like that. But everybody is different.

    Yes because all gaming enthusiasts prefer lighter and smaller mice... I have large hands and use a palm grip. I find these tiny light mice nearly unusable.
