I have 2 of these and was really hoping logitech will have a successor for the G3 in the same dimension and function. The mouse is ergonomically great on the hand.

Oh hey, I posted in this thread just over a year ago.
Mouse is now too worn out to use for competitive gaming.
After a year of careful selection, I'm now forcing myself to buy a Steelseries Xai (Diablo 3 mouse, since the original Xai is also discontinued and INCREDIBLY expensive for any refurbs you can find. Shame I heard the D3 mouse is trash compared to the older Xai and Sensei) or Sensei.
Circuit City, why did you go under? Going to waste so much money returning the mice if I don't like them..

The Logitech G3 is the best gaming mouse ever created and I'm still using it today. Tried to switch to other mice and brands (Steelseries, Razer.. ) but I haven't found anything that comes close. It's a shame there's no worthy successor for the Logitech G3.
The Logitech G100 (same shape as the G3) is sold in Asia but not in Europe.. I really hope a successor for the Logitech G3 will be released in Europe, too.

I agree the MX300/G1/G3 line was one of Logitech's best line for gaming. Even the MX300 wasnt really made for gaming, but the high Polling rate of 800mhz still does great jobs in games.
At this moment i am using an MX300 in an G1 casing. I never saw an G3 in our country. Only saw the G1 or G5.
Wished logitech upgraded the casing of the MX300/G1/G3 (which are all the same) with new internal parts (laser technology, dpi-switching, etc). I mean keep the same casing, because thats why much gamers loved this mouse, but add new technology to it and keep it around 85 grams.
Hope to see any new form of MX300/G1/G3 in a new jacket soon.

I would love to see a new G3-shaped mouse from Logitech! Symmetric mice are very common by other manufacturers - Steelseries Sensei (I owned - too wide and low for me), Kana (I own - too small), a bunch of razer mice (which often lack in quality) and now Zowie has one called AM that i haven't tried yet. I had their Zowie EC2 which had a great sensor (maybe even better than G400), but I didnt like the sloping to the side shape.
I have been using a variety of gaming mice for 15 years, and I still remember that blue Logitech mouse which shape I really loved. The G3 had about the same shape, but stupid me didnt buy any G3 when it was available. =(. Now I just wish Logitech made a new version of G3 (lets call it G350?). Today I have the G300 (for my laptop), G400 (my main) and G9x (which i think lacks a good grip). Have you ever held an Alienware TactX then you know what I am talking about. Now THAT is a great shape if you want something else than a symmetric one. The only thing I would ask for in a new G3-mouse is two thumb buttons (since Im so used to it now). That would be similar to the Zowie AM mouse. And I would pay 50 euro for it! Easily!

I approve all of the complaints above. Bring back the G3. I doubt it's ever coming back now, it's almost 2013 and people have been complaining for 5+ years now.
This is THE Logitech mouse I remember from the 80s/90s.
The LS1 is available (even from Apple) and looks similar but has no side buttons. I guess this would work if you can remap the left/right scroll wheel to back/forward.

The LS1 is NOT a worthy successor to the G3, very cheaply built and it's too small. I returned it.
If it were the size of the G3 and quality was better, it would be perfect. The scroll wheel left/right was a perfect replacement for the side buttons.
The G300 looks ok but the extra buttons (and too many of them, 9?? seriously... they must be cheap to add on or companies would add these unnecessary buttons) are in the wrong spot. The G3 you can hit the side buttons with your thumb or pinky.
While I only used them as browser buttons, they occasionally came in handy for voice chat or weapon reload.
Right now I've given up on Logitech's lineup and looking at the Razer Abyssus.
Abyssus is a simple, no nonsense mouse but only 3 buttons, which I can live with. I use shift+scrollwheel for back/forward in a browser at work anyway. Voicechat can be set to the middle mouse button.
I'd rather someone build a 5 button mouse like the G3, that focused on quality, even if the price was higher than these MMO mice. Or at least place the extra buttons on the side.
May Zeus bless the memory of the G3. While the tracking sensors in these things are very rarely, if ever perfect, that was Logitech and mice in general peaking.
