From the Manufacturer
Extreme cordless performance. The Logitech G7 laser cordless mouse delivers extreme cordless performance with a 2000 dpi laser engine for blinding speed and precision response. The G7's full-speed, bidirectional USB connection sends a blazing 500 reports/second* over 2.4 GHz wireless for a bulletproof connection. Dead batteries won't stop you mid-mission, thanks to a five-level power indicator and twin hot-swappable Li-ion battery packs that recharge while you're racking up points. Use Logitech's SetPoint software to customize your mouse with advanced features such as game detection and adjustable sensitivity (including independent x- and y-axis settings). The programmable tilt wheel adds an unprecedented level of control and gaming power.
2000 dpi laser engine
An ultrahigh resolution engine churns images at an astounding 6.4 megapixels per second. A massive (30-pixel by 30-pixel) sensor array and precision laser technology allow the G7 to deliver best-in-class performance and tracking.
Full-speed USB + 2.4 GHz cordless
Four times faster than conventional mice, USB delivers blazing speed and instant acceleration. With a five times** stronger connection, 2.4 GHz wireless bulletproofs the G7 against lags and interference dropouts.
Two fast-swap ultralight Li-ion packs
Recharging doesn't have to mean pausing the action. In the default gaming power mode, the battery life will last up to two and a half days for average game play.***
The five-level gauge tells you exactly how much game time remains.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) gaming feet
Forget sticky workarounds--the G7's durable polytetrafluoroethylene feet give the ultrasmooth glide you want in a gaming mouse.
In-game sensitivity switching
The G7 provides instant access to three sensitivity levels--400 dpi, 800 dpi, and 2000 dpi--before driver installation. Shift from pixel-precise targeting to fast-twitch maneuvers, without pausing the action.
* For Windows® 9x and ME users only, the Logitech SetPoint software will limit the report rate to 125 reports/second. ** Compared to conventional 27 MHz wireless. *** Based on an average of 4 hours of game play a day

For people who don't have small hands - I bought this mouse because I dislike wired mice. This was a good option since it is wireless and had rechargeable batteries. There are two batteries so you can easily put a new one in while you charge the dead one. The charging station is also the wireless dock but after a couple months of use, the mouse would often spazz or freeze, interrupting game play. I also found the mouse a little fast - the speed can be changed but the cursor still seemed run further than the point I intended to click. The mouse has lots of buttons for gameplay but I found myself mostly only using the scroll. The button by the thumb was also awkward to use - not sure if it was because of the size of my hands.
I would not recommend this mouse (even if it was comfortable) because of the freezing cursor. This problem happens with many wireless mice but having tried a couple options, there are definitely some that don't freeze up,
Logitech markets the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" as a gaming mouse and to that end the mouse gives the user instant access to three sensitivity levels--400, 800, and 2000 dpi--before driver installation. With Logitech's trademark SetPoint software, the user can add game detection and independent x- and y-axis settings. Important to me and mine? No, but if you are a gamer, these settings mean something.
But since my wife does not play any games that needs the G7's gaming capabilities there must be another reason I choose the mouse over all others. That reason is two, or perhaps three-fold.
I bought the "G7" because I wanted a cordless without the large transceiver and Logitech delivered again with the "G7"; the transceiver unit is smaller than a stick of gum and plugs into any available USB port. And the G7 ships, and is powered by, with not one, but two small (rechargeable) lithium-ion batteries, a little smaller than matchbook. The G7 ships with a small charging station that not only holds the extra battery (for charging, whilst the other is powering the G7), but also provides a USB port for inserting the transceiver. SWEET! This charging station in turn plugs into an available USB port, preferably on the PC where is can draw more power.
At first glance the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" is a little unusual--it is shaped much like an oval; it is not shaped like any other mouse I have used in the past including the MX Laser. The mouse fits nicely in the hand and its size makes it easy to use; it's not too big and not too small. What is unique is the small thumb rest that juts out from the black and gray mouse's left side; it's not only stylish but functional.
In all other respects the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" is a conventional two button mouse with a few extras thrown in for good measure. The clearest change for the mouse is the rubber scroll wheel that sits in the middle front of the mouse. The scroll wheel allows you to scroll left or scroll right by tilting in one direction or another. Right after the scroll wheel are two gaming-centric buttons that control the sensitivity of the mouse cursor.
Along the left hand side of the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" are handy thumb-button controls that allow you to page forward and backward through web pages and documents. Directly after these buttons is an illuminated low level battery indicator that relays the current charge level of the included lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries.
Speaking of the lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries, the spring-loaded housing for on is located underneath the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" in the rear. The battery is ejected by a small push-button. And speaking of button, the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" has another in the form of an On/Off switch. However, like all Logitech laser pointing devices, the G7 automatically shuts itself off during periods of inactivity; again, sweet.
Installation the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" is pretty straight forward: unplug the old mouse, plug in the small 2.4GHz transceiver; it should be automatically detected and drivers installed.
Note: you can operate the mouse from this point on without installing the Logitech software, but the specialty buttons will not work, however, as in any standard mouse, the cursor settings can be manipulated, via the Mouse applet in control panel.
I next installed the Logitech (Set-Point) software which affords me access to all of the G7 Laser Cordless Mouse's functionality. Of course the software does its part to populate the Windows XP/Vista system tray with a small applet that "speaks" to the mouse buttons; if close the applet you will loose control over the specialty buttons. Once this step is complete, I was ready to try out my new laser mouse.
Performance and Use
Logitech makes claim that the new MX Laser Engine perched inside the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" is many, many times more sensitive than a standard (red) LED. But because the laser tracks movement more accurately than a standard LED, over virtually any surface (matt or glossy, black or white), the "G7" takes more precise readings of the surface. The result: more exact cursor movement onscreen, which Logitech claims makes for better gaming, and graphics work.
I can--as can my wife--testify to the "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse's" smooth movement over the display screen; my wife has had G7 for three weeks and in that time the cursor has never jumped, jittered, skipped, or paused. And more importantly, my wife loves it and defiantly notices the difference between the G7 and the not-to-be-missed Microsoft cordless it replaced. She even managed to manipulate the specialty buttons and use the mouse at the same time, though she admits that this took some getting used to.
To date I have not had any hardware problems with the mouse, or any other Logitech mouse I own. Nor have there been any issue with the mouse losing its connection with the transceiver. Logitech suggest you place the transceiver away from other electronics (good luck), but if your desk is a as crowed as my wife's is, this may prove impossible; i.e. there is also a wireless-G adapter on her desk.
The only issue my wife has with the mouse thus far is the lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries; with regular use--about eight hours a day--finds that she has to switch out the batteries every day and a half or so. However, for a general purpose optical pointing device, the Logitech "G7 Laser Cordless Mouse" is hard to beat. Light weight and attractive the "G7" is comfortable, and easy to maneuver, and far more functional than any other mouse I or my wife for that matter, have ever used. The "G7" laser guided pointing device is reliable workhorse that keeps getting better with age.
UNTIL 2 weeks ago when it started freezing every 3-5 seconds. Since that time I have tried EVERYTHING I can find to fix it. IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY! Turns out this is a known issue and that there is NO KNOWN FIX once it starts happening. most likely the only fix is to get a new mouse. As the mouse batteries and components start to degrade it seems the signal or electronics weaken enough to allow otherwise non issues to become issues, ie battery contacts, electrical oxidation, other wireless traffic, etc. I still think it may be some as yet undiscovered device or software conflict but it does behave like a developing hardware issue. It's there a lot, then goes away for a while, then comes back really bad, then goes away. I don't know. Just be aware that this is not just me, it is a widespread issue that has not been fully addressed by Logitech. It may just be a design flaw that is being redressed by the G700 or something.
I really, really liked this mouse. I will update this when and if I find a solution.
