Logitech G7 Cordless Laser Mouse



Logitech is a name synonymous with manufacturing everything from PC based sound systems through to gaming headsets, and attempting to intensify the aural/gaming pleasure of the user. In this day and age of competitive gaming, whether you're a league player or just a friendly LAN gamer with your friends on the weekend; the need for some sort of advantage over your opposition is imperative.

Logitech's latest incarnation of input device - the G7, has been touted as the tool to provide you with this advantage. Further, not only is the G7 reputed to perform well, but is stylish and unobtrusive to boot. With a new PC build underway, aimed squarely at being a high-end gaming rig, I decided to purchase the Logitech G7 to see how it would perform.


The technical specifications of the Logitech G7 Cordless Laser Mouse were taken from Logitech's wesite, you can find additional information here

• Tracking Resolution: 2000 dpi

(Accessed 20th Aug 2006)


With packaging that is testamant to Logitech's commitment to quality; the G7 is very securely packaged within a plastic bubble pack and covered with a stiff cardboard exterior to ensure that the risk of damage in transit, is minimised.

You will notice on both the front and back faces of the box that Logitech has attempted to tell you just how good the G7 is, and what its main features are. I myself, find the visual bombardment a little dated and tiring, and would much prefer that the manufacturer perhaps used the marketing funds a little better by omitting extraneous information and passing on a cost saving to the consumer instead.


Logitech list the contents of the package, both on their website and on documentation within the box itself. Listed below are the included contents:

• Logitech® G7 Laser Cordless Mouse
• 2 Li-Ion Battery Packs
• Charging Station
• USB Dongle
• CD with SetPoint™ software (Version 2.4a, most current version from Logitech's website is vers. 3.0.107)
• Installation Guide
• Three-year warranty

It's refreshing to see a manufacturer with faith in their product and providing a three (3) year warranty onto the consumer, it is a rare thing in this day and age. Also, the installation manual is quite comprehensive and easy to follow.
