HI, you gamers out there: anyone of you use cordless mouse for gaming ? example, crysis, CS, red alert 3...

Cordless mice are okay, but I'm happier not having to deal with batteries dying and lag. The G7 is a decent cordless, but it doesn't match up to the wired version (G5).

Wireless is always going to lag more then a wired mouse as the distortion of the signal has to be eliminated before it can be translated into a command. Whats you budget if its the sky I would go with the Logitech mx air (if your going to go cordless why not go deskless)

My Logitech Optical mouse is very good at wireless, it has very low distortion, and is 1100 DPI. But a wireless mouse has a long signall tracker already, so it kinda kills the point.

i've used wireless for gaming, and then i used wired.

I am currently using a Logitech G7 and I have never had any problems with lag. I prefer a wireless mouse because I don't want a cord getting in my way or slowing me down.

Does it really make that much of a difference for fps? I have an mx 600 logitech cordless mouse, and I don't seem to notice anything. I know I used to play battlefield 2142 on a cord mouse. I was better at that than cod4, but I've always attributed this to the fact that it is a different game and the fact that I have double the ping.

the G7 is more than a decent wireless mouse, i think it is the best wireless mouse. EVER.
there is no difference in the performance of a G7 and a G5. yes, i have them both. i still pwn like nobody's bidness with the G7.
OP a G7 is not a run-of-the-mill wireless mouse. its not the 15 dollar special that you can buy at wal mart. it cost 75 bucks for a reason. it cost 100 when i bought it.
