The g300, really? I won't go into specifics because the guy above me did. But being interested in the g100, I find very little about the g300 that appeals to me. I haven't bought a logitech mouse since you guys stopped producing the mx310 (and mx300 before that). I saw the g100 and got happy, you guys were finally going back to the good stuff. And now I see it's Asia only.

I can't speak to the future, but what products sold in each region is determined by the sales team. They've been known to expand the regions that products are sold in, but at this moment, I have no specific information that the G100 and G100 combo will be shipped outside of Asia.

Actually it seems to be china only at the moment. (Maybe korea soon since they still sell G1's)
Anyway, I believe your company pulled the G1/G300/MX300 shape due to lack of sales in the general US/Euro markets. Kinda a shame nowadays since a ton of people are actually willing/are importing G1's/Razers salmosa's from korea/china.
Since there's no clear date or anything, I might go ahead and order one this week.

I remember time ago Logitech staff claimed that they would not gonna release any symmetrical mice for clawgrip users,cause simply the is not enough demand on the market for it. Fortunatelly they changed their mind and launched G300 and G100. So my hopes now that these time they would change their mind again and start to sell it outside asia.
Its not only my thought, but also thoughts of thousants users from different forums and gaming communities that there is much interest in such a mouse as G100 on the market atm and startin sellin it in Europe would be a sucess.
G300 is a good mouse(not flawless anyway) and might find its admirers but its another story cause its another story while people want exactly g100. Here is just a short list of the facts why we need G100:
1)In such a market segmenet there is not much to choose atm: Abyssys,Zowie Mico and Kinzu all have its serious flaws while
2) There are still a huge army of fans of logitech piilot shape mouse,including early classic models and gaming mx300/g1/g3 who reasonale think that this shape is the best in the world for finger grip. So according this and some conservatism of gamers who would prefer exactly same shape which worked well before over new stuff, they would be happy to switch to g100 as its the most close one to what they are used too.
3) While there is a lot of marketing bullsh*ttin about useless high dpi etc,gamers care about practical things such as flawless sensor,balanced size/weight and tracking speed. Thats why mx518 is still that popular. And considering system specs g100 seems to be the best among similar mice,cause a)it has ideal weight of 80g,not making it heavier to look more solid and expensive(as it was done with g3 for example) b)its sensor placed right in the middle instead of puttin it completely out of place like on g500 or g300 c)it has good teflon mouse feet instead of poor g1 d)it has 500 hz unlike mx series or g1 d)it has no prediction which is a big deal for mx518 users for instance. Thereby summin it up the only not the good thing is non standart dpi steps instead of usual 400-800 but its not even a downside so users who understand smth about good mouse apart from high dpi would probably choose this model
4)Logitech shouldnt underestimate interest for this mouse outside Asia cause nowadays games like SC2 and QL are gettin more and more popular all over the world. Not needed to tell about SC i would talk about QL as the most widely used mouse there is Razer Abysys which has problems with jittering and ms 1.1 which is extra old and much worse in all techinical parametrs compared to g100 so just imagine how much potential custumers you can get.
5)If it starts to sell in Europe i would instantly buy 3 of them for sure just because its the best atm and a know quite a lot guys who think the same. While its somekind of personal preference it shows that there is still a lot of loyalty for this model and logitech itself,even after unsuccessful models for last years.
I know its not you who decide where to sell your products but i would be really appreciated if this message could be adressed to sales team and maybe followed by simillar expectations from public this would help them to change their mind..

Is the sensor new or has it been used in some other mice as of yet?
Looks like a great mouse for RTS. Good old school shape, no silly stuff, no buttons to get in the way.
