The Good 2,000dpi laser sensor; two rechargeable battery packs; easy-to-change sensitivity settings.

The Bad Lacks removable weights; right-handed use only.

The Bottom Line The Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Optical mouse has a 2,000dpi optical sensor, programmable buttons, adjustable sensitivity levels, a quick-swappable battery, and most importantly, no cord. But gamers who don't mind being chained to their computers should consider other, less expensive options.

Logitech G7 Laser Cordless mouse

Most gamers avoid cordless mice with good reason: their battery life can be short-lived, and you run the risk of lag. Logitech addresses both concerns with the G7 laser cordless mouse, which features programmable buttons, adjustable sensitivity levels, and a quick-swappable battery. At $99, it's a good cordless option for the gaming set, but those who don't mind being chained to their computers should consider the Logitech G5 laser mouse , which offers the same level of programmability for $30 less.

The 4.7-ounce G7 is fairly light for a gaming mouse, and most gamers will want more heft; unlike the G5, it lacks customizable weights to give it a heavier feel. Though it looks like it will fit both left- and right-handed users, it's made for righties only. It has two sensitivity buttons conveniently placed below the thumbwheel and another programmable button near the thumb rest. It has a small battery meter on top. An eject button on the bottom lets you quickly swap out the battery. The G7 comes with two battery packs and a USB recharging station. Logitech also includes a wireless receiver that you can plug into your computer's USB port or the USB port on the recharging station.
