driskill22: recommend you try killmouseaccel. I've tried your recommendation too--it improves things somewhat, but it's not quite the same. There's still some noticeable acceleration.
With my 27" screen, I can move the mouse across the screen in about an inch (with the G700 set to 2700 dpi). This doesn't vary wether I move the mouse slowly or quickly. The slider on the mouse preference panel is set right to the middle which is supposed to gives you 1:1 in terms of tracking speed once acceleration is turned off. Mouse is accurate to the pixel on a 2560x1440 screen.

I've just been running the killmouseaccel script when I want to play a game and then I disable the script when I am done. I find the normal acceleration in the OS to be fine when browsing the web and other non-game related activities. When the acceleration is disabled I find the mouse pointer to be very "floaty" and hard to accurately point at things, but when aiming in a game it is fine. My mac isn't my main gaming. The only thing I really play on it is TF2 or L4D when I am away from home and have some free time. It runs games just fine. I just wish there was better support built in.

I just bought a G700 for my imac but now I regret it I wish I would have bought the razer death adder instead. The G700's mouse movement on OSX is just terrible and I did all the recommended things on this thread already, including setting the polling rate to 125hz and disabling mouse accel. Right now my current problem is the vertical movement speed seems to be different from the horizontal.. and there's no way to fix this.

@Bob_Sacamano: Thanks for the recommendation. After the latest round of I-hate-my-*********-mouse, I tried killmouseaccel. I'm still not as happy with the mouse on the mac as I am on windows and linux, but it's a huge improvement over the default mac behavior.

I've tried the beta steermouse.. the probably is it wiped all my settings from windows off the mouse and I had to re-do them all, and there's no way to set different profiles and such

For anyone reading this thread I just bought a G700 and like many got home only to find that there's no Logitech support for this mouse on Mac. For shame
First off Logitech please, can you update LCC to include this mouse? PLEASE! It's beyond frustrating to me that after buying and returning 3x $100+ mice I finally found one I really like only to discover... no native support. For shame.
However if you have a PC or you can run windows on your Mac take heart G700 users, there's a solution, here's what I've done and it works perfectly:
1. Hook up the G700 via usb cable to a PC or Mac running windows.
2. Download the Setpoint software.
3. Set *all* buttons on the G700 to "Generic button" and apply settings.
4. Connect G700 to Mac
5. Download, install and open USB Overdrive 3.0.1 (or current version)
5. A generic profile will show up in USB Overdrive which will NOT recognize buttons G8, G9 and G10... *but* if you've set all buttons to "Generic button" via setpoint you can now add the G8, G9 and G10 buttons to USB Overdrive by clicking the "+" in the lower left corner and click the buttons on the G700. I suggest deleting all the buttons in the generic USB Overdrive profile and simply re-add every button on your G700 one at a time.
You can add the sideways scroll buttons, and if you really want to get nutty you can even add a "MIddle button + scroll up/down" function by clicking the "+" and then holding down the middle scroll wheel and moving it down, then do the same for up in a separate maneuver.
All these buttons you just added to the USB overdrive profile can now be programmed however you want
In fact the only thing I believe you can't do with this method is set up profiles that you can switch to on the fly. For me that's no big deal, I have a hard time remembering all the functions of one profile let alone multiples.
If you don't have access to a PC or a Mac running Windows sorry, you're out of luck with this mouse.
COME ONE logitech, I love your mice, but you MUST support us mac users! Don't drive customers to the inferior, overpriced Razer Mamba and others.

i just bought this mouse and was quite dissapointed when i saw it does not got Mac support.
But i am using "BetterTouchTool" for my Trackpad and my Magic Mouse.
This Tool is free and works also for the G700.
just press a key and add a key or a key combination to it.
You can also choose if it should do it on all programs or only at a specific program.
you can get it here:

Does Microsoft pay Logitech for making Windows only drivers or what!?
This is ridiculous, what kind of marketing is that? We already have software for configuring our products on Mac OS X but the hilariously expensive gaming products won't have any support in the system? What kind of expense is it for Logitech to pay a group of programmers to add some button mapping features!? I have already bought several Logitech products so far, but if G700 and other high profile stuff will not get any EVEN SIMPLE support for OS X I will just go for Razer and have full featured products on both systems. Please confirm if Logitech is going to do something about it in near future, because I ordered G700 and don't know whether to unbox it or just sell it straight away for the full price...

Give ControllerMate a try.
It will change how you look at prepherials on mac, and how you game.
I have Belkin n52te, G700, G13, G940, Razer Naga, CH Pedals, Saitek Cyborg, etc, ALL under controll of ControllerMate on various machines.
One of the amazing thing about ControllerMate is that different device from different manufacture can work together. Since one software controll them all, it is possible to create program that one device can change the behavior of another device altogether.
I have yet to feel the need to use any software that came with any of thsoe devices (Except LCD Manager for G13).
PS, oh yeah, and support on ControllerMate is amazing too. Never seen a developper get more involved with user commnunity than Ken.
