I am sorry if this is not allow, I was so excited when I saw this that I had to post it here... you can scold me later :o :p

The price is $49.95 with a $30.00 Mail in Rebate + FREE shipping. Heck, even if you are to lazy to fill out the paperwork and send it in, you are still paying a good price for it.

I had to pull the pin because my G7 is acting up big time on almost all the games as of late.

LTG9LASER | G9 Laser Mouse | BuyDig.com

I gotta ask the biggest and dumbest question of all times... Would I be able to plug in both my Mices and use them separately? I mean, use the G7 for my Wife and the Vista OS and the new G9 for Windows 7 and my games? of course they would both be plug to the same PC.

I dont know the answer to your question, but I have a G9 and absolutley LOVE it! You will not be sorry that you bought it.

I paid $65.99 CDN, which was $100 off. Same kind of smoking deal you found!

Yeah, I thought as much but I was not 100% sure that it could be done w/o some sort of conflict... glad to know it is plausible.

is it me or is that the most ridiculous looking mouse?? Its square , why on earth do you want it?? ITS SQUARE MAN!! ;)
Nah, you are totally wrong, it is not the most ridiculous looking mouse... IT IS TOTALLY HEDIOUS and it causes me nausea to see it! :D but then again, reviews say it is the most ergonomic mouse that you'll ever use and there is no better for gaming.

Others will say differently since they use other brands but I tend to stick with a brand and Logitech has not failed me yet, besides, for 20 bucks, I am willing to try anything :p ;)

Well then, imaging doing so at 3200 dpi, which I believe, is the speed the G9 is capable of mustering out :D

My G7 has custom settings, I can choose from 4 or 5 different dpi speeds depending on where I need it more, the G9 is said to have even more setting or utilize the dpi is a much better way.

For instance, playing Vegas 1 & 2, I would need to lower my speeds IIRC, otherwise, I would shoot everywhere else in the map but straight, in other games, I need it a little more speed in order to be able to aim to my liking.

Having the capabilities of 3200 dpi does not mean I am going to use it maxed out ;)

yeah the G5 is the same , 6 customisable settings , i use the game detection setting to automatially set the sensitivity to 2000 ingame , i cant use it in windows , i had to change my style of gaming to run it flat out , but i thought as id bought a mouse with 200dpi i might as well use it

dont forget to set to yuor polling to 100 , give you an extra milliscond response time , get the edge over evryone online ;) ;)

what mousemat do you use? I have an Icemat 2 Glass , been using it years

Networking seems to be one of those things that I will never understand about computer, it kinda hates me, add that to the time it takes to spawn into a decent game, then all you see are people bunny hoping everywhere or running around like crazy, besides, I suck at it so much that I don't last but a few seconds, get my head shot in the process and then, wait another few minutes while I spawn... nah, I can't be bothered with it

I did try the GRAW 2 Demo, got shot quiet a few times by my own team mates or got accused of Camping because I refused to run (like they were doing) from point to point and decided to take my time moving from cover to cover.

2 to 3 minutes later my team is all dead and I am sniping away at the enemy 1 by 1, the owner of the server (I guess) was one of my teammates because of all a sudden I get kicked out or banned out of the game... WTF???

This an plenty of other reasons is why I prefer to game at my own leisure and if and when I want, I can run & gun but, for the most part, I like to take my time sniping away.

A friend on another forum invited me to play FC2 with him but after a 20 minute workout to get in, register or whatever, I gave up on it... the Campaign sucked donkey dong anyways;) :)

Totally agree with you AstaLaVista. PC online gaming does indeed suck donkey dong :p

The only game i play online is COD4 on the ps3. Iv got COD5 on the pc but it never gets played along with every other online part of the games i own.

depends where you play i suppose , if you get a server with 12 year old admins you'll get kicked sometimes just for being better than them , i played al the ww2 sims from medal of honour to cod waw , you need to find a good server , we have our own , our money our rules ;) but when ours is empty i have a few good ones where i can camp all i like , bunnyhopping is unavoidable but pointless , nothing better that taking out a crazed bunnyhopping spray and prayer waving his ppsh about with one shot of a bolt action rifle , thats where the 2000dpi comes in ;) they call you lucky , but you when you get "lucky" time and time again they call you a cheat , it happens , as i say find a server with good admins and good rules and you'll be fine. there easier to find than you may think.

the online side of games is the best part for me , ive not played the cod waw singleplayer since i got it and that was just for 5 minutes

you prefer to game at your own leisure , theres no time limit as to when you join and when you leave

you are missing out , doesnt matter if your cr@p , start off in the deathmatch servers with instant respawn , move onto team deathmatch then search and destroy if thats your thing

you really need to give it a good go , your missing out , its a shame your in the US or id drag you onto a server and make you enjoy yourslf ;)

While i agree a bit with what your saying, online console gaming is more fun. For a start im sitting in a comfy chair, dont need a keyboard and mouse and lastly im playing on my 42 inch plasma with sorround sound.

Whereas pc online gaming im using a 22 inch monitor that i need to sit really close too so i can use my mouse effectively. I suppose it depends on your setup but my pc is not designed for fun online gaming, so i dont lol.

Im pretty good at FPS online as i always place in the top two or three on COD4 etc but i cant be bothered with the time it takes for a game to start most of the time (especially on pc's things like STEAM are just ridiculous). But hay each to their own.

ive just got a 22" dell monitor and i have to sit at the other side of the room!! ;) and my chair is very comfy ;)

My friend has a ps3 and its fantastic for getting together with a few beers and playing football/racing games and it looks impressive on his panasonic plasma (its bigger than my front room) :)

I cant get around them in first person shooters though , mouse and keyboard is the way forwrd ;)

Yeah a mouse and keyboards more precise but its just not as much fun on my setup. A few beers, a few friends and the ps3 blows my pc out of the water for online/multiplayer games. Huddled around my monitor sharing a keyboard just isnt the same lol
