The design of the mouse is also excellent. The buttons are positioned so that you can't accidentally press them mid-game (as I've done with a previous gaming mouse I owned).
Verdict: It's a bit expensive but if you're a heavy FPS gamer then I think this is just about the best mouse you can own. My Counter Strike kills have improved dramatically since I bought this.
General info on the mouse:
Just over 13cm long, 6.5cm wide, and just over 4.5cm high. Not heavy. Fast response time.
Problems with the mouse:
The biggest issue is whether you will find the mouse comfortable. Logitech mice have quite a large but comfortable hump. If you have small fingers then this is the best gaming-standard mouse available (at time of writing). The only other company who I'd consider buying a gaming-standard mouse from, Razerzone, sell mice which are substantially longer, with less hump. My fingers can not reach to the mouse wheel on Razerzone mice. However, if you have large hands then your little finger is likely to trail on the desk when you use this mouse. There is no groove on the right of the mouse for your little finger to sit on. This is only a problem if you got medium-big fingers (for a guy).
The Logitech mouse lets you set it's sensitivity to multiples of 50. I normally have it at 1000dpi. I never use the mouse at 1600dpi for two reasons.
Firstly it doesn't cope well with major accelerations at it's maximum dpi. So if I turn rapidly and suddenly it will struggle.
