The G700s is somewhat of an oddity in the Logitech gaming mouse lineup. That is because most of the other gaming mice can all be tracked back to the original G5 but the G700s gets its roots from a non-gaming mouse design called the Revolution (with the G5 mixed in). That means that the G700s has a shape that is familiar but more ergonomic than the other gaming models. As for the difference between the G700s and the G700, much like the G500s the most obvious difference is the striped design on the mouse itself. They did however upgrade the sensor but I will talk about that more in the performance section.

Logitech mentions the advanced coating that they used on the G700s in multiple locations on the packaging, much like the G500s. While it is possible there is a coating on the mouse, you can’t see one with it in hand. The black stripes on the top of the G700s give it styling, but I would love to see these be a rubber grip. The only special surface that you will end up finding is on the left and right sides of the G700s that help give you more grip. The finish is much like a textured paint or wall.

The G700s has two options for getting your movement information to your PC. First you have a small wireless dongle that allows the G700s to be completely wireless. When you can’t run wireless or when you need to charge your mouse you can use the included cord. That cord plugs into the front of the G700s and as I mentioned before it will charge the mouse while also turning it into a wired mouse.

The bottom of the G700s has four gliders placed in each corner for smooth sliding. You also have the Laser sensor eye and two wireless specific features. First there is a battery panel that covers a good portion of the bottom of the mouse. To keep the battery from dyeing while you are away there is also an on and off switch.

The side profile of the G700s shows a combination of the shape that we are used to seeing from Logitech but the side itself has a large grove cut out of it unlike the G500s. This actually reminds me of old Logitech mice. Tucked into that grove there are four side buttons in the area that the G500s had two. There are also three LEDs on the side that show your DPI settings.

Up on the top there are a few additional buttons that I’m not used to seeing on the left side of the triggers. As you can see in the photo below they are labeled G10, G9, and G8 and can be programmed to handle anything you need. The placement is out of the way without being too far out of the way. The metal scroll wheel has a nice rubber finish along the middle and like other Logitech mice it does rock left and right adding two more buttons as well as the button you get when you push the wheel down. There is also another button behind the scroll wheel that when pushed unlocks the scroll wheel and puts it in a free spin mode.

I've used this type of mouse probably over 10 years now (Laser MX) until the G700 came out. Recently got the G700s.

I do not believe it get much better than than this.

I use the side button a lot for push to talk, and in some FTP's for throwing grenades.

When the battery is low, can just plug in the cord without skipping a beat.

The only thing I could say about this mouse is that the cord seems to be stiffer than other mouse cords. It may because you are using to no resistance while wireless though and when you switch, you can tell.

Theoretically if you get 2, and when mouse is low on power, you can just switch them, which I've seen people do. It is also compatible with G700, which I also tested.

I hate batteries so I will never own a wireless mouse, keyboard or headset. I love Logitech products though.

I think it is fare to say that Logitech is the all around best peripheral manufacturer. From their high end PC enthusiast mice and keyboards to the $10 Logitech K120 their all pretty solid, and last for years. My Logitech x518 optical mouse is over 5 years old. My wife still uses the 518 everyday. Like I said solid.
