CharlesB, i am a little troubled about something here.. these issues that people talk about, mouse freezing and whatnot: can they be fixed? or is it faulty hardware?
I wouldn't want the G700 to be another Razer Mamba case.. a broken product, that everyone was unhappy and complained about and Razer simply couldn't do jack to fix, because its hardware was faulty to begin with.

Been following this thread pretty closely and it's good to know that the problem with small movements is getting fixed. I plan on getting the G700 soon to replace my aging G9 (1st gen).
To the users inquiring about replacement mouse feet, I'd suggest looking into getting a roll of teflon tape instead. All you do is place small strips of the tape to cover the mouse feet and it'll be as smooth as using a mousepad. Best part, your mousefeet will never wear out, only the tape will. I bought a roll myself on ebay maybe five or six years ago and it lasted me until this year. Plus, that was with applying the tape to more mice than just my own. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find a roll of the teflon tape on ebay again when I searched recently and people will sell you like 8" strips for around $2-5 which is frankly a ripoff. Recently however, I found that Amazon carries the same rolls of tape I bought years ago, it just had a weird name "PTFE Mouse Tape." It's 5 yards for about $8.00. I've never had to replace the mousefeet on my G9 and as long as you keep the tape on your mousefeet clear of dust, they'll last months and months before you have to reapply any new tape. Replacement mouse feet from what I've seen cost about the same or more for only one set, so it wouldn't hurt to try. You won't be disappointed.
Anyway can't wait to get my own G700 up and running so hopefully those mouse movement issues are settled by the time I get one.

Crow69 - The blip is resolved, but may rarely occur in instances while the mouse is being used wirelessly, is left alone for a long period of time (like, minutes), and will only be visible for the initial movement. It's a soft instruction in the mouse that we can touch easily when writing profiles to the mouse (which is why it only took a software update to SetPoint to resolve it), and you want during non-gaming use for this to occasionally happen, eg you wouldn't want to burn through a 6th of your mouse's battery if you're watching a movie During active gameplay use, you should have no problems, and we can continue to tweak the performance through the software if need be
And yes, replacement mice feet will be available (It's why we included the notches for easy feet removal on the bottom). They're not up now, but they should be available before anyone actually manages to wear them down

Can someone explain what the correct software version should be for this mouse? I am using an Illuminated Keyboard and replaced my MX Revolution mouse with the G700. I installed Setpoint 6.15 and now I have 2 different pieces of software running, one that claims to be 6.15 and handles only the keyboard, and one claiming to be 5.40.41 handling only the mouse.
Is that alright? I thought that it would be Setpoint 6.15, the latest version taking care of everything, so why the 5.xx? I thought 6.15 would be the latest but now I see that you are mentioning 5.40.41 as the latest patch...a tad confusing.
I'm trying to get this straightened out because since the upgrade from my previous mouse and from Setpoint 4.8x, I'm having issues with how mute and volume are handled by the keyboard. This is annoying enough for me that I'm considering going back to the previous mouse and software.

I've been using Logitec devices for quite some time and I most definitely will not buy the G700.
My old MX1000 Mouse also had the problem that is referenced here (which is obviously due to power saving issues) and Logitech tech support told me, back then, that they could not reproduce the error and left me standing in the rain.
I tried the G700 with the newest firmware at my friends place and it still has that annoying problem (also in max gaming mode) .

Thanks its great to know feet will be availible, I don't have any mouse movement problems with my g700 by the way. just that the battery meter level runs down faster than the battery really does. this is a minor issue that doesn't bother me.
I love my g700

My G5 died few days ago, when I plug it in, it works for a 2 seconds and then it "reboots" it self. Cursor stops moving, and the DPI indicator light drops back to the middle default. Unplugged - Replugged the same. Different Pc, the same. so...
I was thinking about buying a new mouse and I stumpled on G700. I play games a lot so, a desktop mouse won't cut it. That's why I am interested in a gaming mouse and in the "wired/wireless" feature. Even though the wireless mode being as good as Logitech promotes, it would be a saver (cable mess here...)
But since I read this thread, I got confused. Some people have problems with the G700. Are those issues fixable?
There some people that are saying that they have none of these issues.
What's the verdict here? I need a mouse soon, and I would hate to pay 110 Euros (close to 155$) and have issues and be unsatisfied.

Pretty sure the latest driver fixed the problem that people talk about in this thread.
I have never had any issues but I never had the old driver either.
I would go ahead and buy it. It is pretty expensive but you'll like it.
If it doesn't work (which I think is unlikely) then you can always return it.

i own literally over 20 logitech devices in the last 5 years and this is disappointing.
