I recieved a Logitech G9x
a few days ago, along with a SteelSeries 4HD Gaming Surface mouse pad. It is working great with the EEC!!
Finally I can play and it's awesome!
For settings in CheckPoint v5.40.39 & Driver v5.10.9 I have changed the default profile for the "Gaming Profile" with these settings.Buttons
: L/R Clicks, DPI Increase/Decrease, rest are Generic.Pointer
: DPI's are Equal X & Y with these Levels: 200, 800, 1600, 3200, 5700. Speed: OS. Acceleration: OS. Report Rate: 1000.Scrolling
: Vertical Speed=1, Horizontal Speed=7.
: Use OS Native Drivers for pointer speed and acceleration=ON. DPI Levels: 5 (obviously), Speed=5, Acceleration=1, Polling Rate=1000.Profile Manager
: Switch profile myself using mouse buttons=Checked.
No macros played with yet, just getting used to this mouse. It's a REALLY
nice mouse, I love the whole feel of it and the different covers. I made some more orders earlier for some items and picked the 3rd cover (the one they [Logitech] were customizing before).
I set it up for Killzone 2, COD: MW2, and just a nav the XMB profiles so far. I played with the game's sensitivity settings some and balanced them out. As stated I just recieved it recently and time constraints have kept me from testing alot more games+settings - yet. Both games I used 5700 DPI the most, and throttle down a step or two at certain times, during situations. With this G9x, I can very easily spin around 180 degrees no problem and can even go farther with a quick nudge/swing..just like on a PC. My natural moving & holding is resting my palm's knuckle/joint area (instead of pure palming it) and claw-grip, a hybrid if you will. I almost never pick up a mouse and am not a wide swipper type, thus why I like med-small mouse pads. Some of those huge pads I just can't fathom myself using them.
I'll post more soon as I play around with this G9x and the items that should be here in a couple days. System overhaul time so I have these on the way:
Logitech G500 (good deal on them at Newegg right now, $31.99 w/free shipping; -$6 instant, add code EMCYXZT42
for $7 more off and print the rebate for $25), "SteelSeries QcK Mini Mouse Pad (Black)", another "SteelSeries 4HD Gaming Surface", "Logitech Custom Grip for G9X/G9 Gaming Mouse", and some other stuff. Also a "Logitech G510 Gaming Keyboard" (which can be bought at Logitech site with a 25% off code GAMING-910
for $89.99+Free S&H, from $119.99) since it's time for a fancy KB & Mouse for main PC. Whichever mouse I like more with the EEC, it will stay. I'd like to keep the G9x for PC.
Stoked so far with the performance that I just decided to wait on Move for a few although I did pick up a PS3 Move TV clip to mount the EYE, and there are some cool games at the end of this month and alot next month.
"Oh, and while the gaming mice may look less appealing than the classic oval, egg shape mice usually come in, the mice will feel a lot better in hand." - Agreed 100% with you. I just remembered all those huge funky mice when they first started coming out in the 90's and they contorted my hand too much, thus why I never got into them. As said, this G9x is awesome & very comfortable to me... Thanks for the info ChaoticInfinityX and everyone else!
