Since the G7 first came out, I've owned 3 of them. The last one I got was used from ebay because they weren't avaialble new anymore. Each one died the same way: the buttons all quit working at once.
Now, I have considered the G7 to be near perfection in implementation. The batteries didn't last all that long, but since there were 2, and the charger was easily put in close reach, and they were easily ejected and swapped, I never had issues with swapping them in the middle of a game. It was more like swapping the cartridge in a handgun in the middle of a fire fight: quick and easy and back to work. Since the charger was nice and close, so was the reciever, so there was very little interference.
I'm still disappointed that you guys discontinued it.
I recent had to switch to a different mouse because the supply of G7s has almost completely dried up. the only thing I can find is a few used ones on ebay for >$150. I tried out the M310, and that thing was horrible. I had to put the reciever in various places, but because it didn't have a cable or charger nearby, the only other places I could put it was way out of the way, and I kept getting interference, causing all sorts of problems. I switched to the G700, but it has had similar issues. I keep trying to reposition the reciever, but the interference is horrible. (I pitched the M310 into a wall because it messed me up several times in the middle of a dungeon run, and my group wiped because the healer, me, couldn't click my heals fast enough. it not only let me down, but it also caused me to let my team down. I haven't dared go on another dungeon run with the G700 because I keep getting the same type interference.) the antennas on your current crop of wireless mice really needs work.
I hate cordrd mice because the stupid cord gets caught on everything. So, don't comment that I should move to a corded mouse. There is nothing so bad as moving the cursor over to click on a heal, only to have the cord catch on the edge of the keyboard and keep me from getting all the way over to the button.
I implore you to come up with something that had the same advantages as the G7. It was a near perfect mouse. Please bring it back, or at least bring back something similar. The G700 isn't even close.
