Therefor I was rather excited to read about the new Logitech G602 mouse! Unfortunately the more I learn, the less happy I feel about the new product. First some pictures, then I'll explain.

My thoughts are:
+ many buttons
+ driver will allow full customization of all buttons
+ looks good and seems to feel ergonomic
+ many buttons
+ works with just one battery (to reduce weight)
+/- main feature long battery life - but has no meaning to me.
+/- I learned to be perfectly happy with G700s 1 day battery life
- four side thumb buttons are enough
- the mouse wheel is not tiltable
- no mouse wheel free spin
- for advertised capacity of 10 days high weight because of 2 batteries
- buttons G10 & G11 implementation inferior to G700
- meaningless laser and microswitch specs, because all competitors have it too
- Logitech please do some microswitch sealing instead
- nothing spectacular, nothing outstanding about it
Some of you might like 20 thumb buttons - it's a highly individual thing. I mainly use two or three profiles on my mice, one for work, one for gaming and a special Photoshop profile. It's a challenge to remember all the button assignments if you don't use them everyday. Only good I see in many thumb buttons are the options for "push to talk"and the like.
If the G700 wouldn't exist then the G602 might be a good option. Well I have to see, what my kids have say about it.
