    Default MX 1000 - How is the latency?

    Time has come to buy a new mouse, and I am considering the MX1000. The problem is, I have an MX700 sitting at home unused because I cannot stand the lag it has. I know that lots of people can't notice the lag, and it is slight, but it's there , and I can't use the mouse for gaming, even though it is a really nice mouse for tracking and accuracy.

    I understand that the MX1000 uses a different wireless transmission (fast RF), and that gives me hope, as it indicates that Logitech understood that there was an issue in this area, but all the same I don't want to be bitten twice. Is there anyone out there who has used both the MX700 and the MX1000, who can notice the lag on the MX700, and can offer an opinion on the MX1000? I've read plenty of people praising both the MX700 and the MX1000, but I need an opinion on the MX1000 from someone who is very sensitive to latency in pointer movement. If you are that person help me out.

    While I haven't used the MX700, I have used the MX1000 for a while now. I have played several FPS games and have noted no lag issues at all, not even small jumps. Don't know if this helps you, but I've been real happy with the MX1000 from both a productivity and gaming viewpoint.

    The thing that is keeping me from buying an MX1000 (I have a MX500) are the reports I have heard of when the mouse is picked up, it takes about a half a second to start tracking again when it is put back down. I consider myself a fast mouser, and I often find myself picking up the mouse during normal operation.

    These reports, however, are not by any means formal, so I ask anyone who is right this instant using a MX1000, to please pick it up and place it down and move to see if there is any lag time.

    I notice none when I use it even during gameply. Now if you let the mouse idle for several seconds, it does have a moments lag when you begin to move it again but it isn't very noticeable... and I generally don't have any idle time if I'm gaming hard so the issue becomes moot.

    Haven't used it for gaming myself, but my mom has one (which is a rediculous waste of money for what she does with it), and I have used it. It's much better than most wired mice IMO. I haven't noticed any lag at all and she does play some stupid game where it would be a noticable problem, if it were one at all. If I were as rich as she is (if I weren't broke, to phrase it more accurately), I'd get one myself for gaming.

    I use the MX510 which has a faster acceleration and higher DPI. It's wired but I do notice the lag on the other mouse (MX700). None on mine at all, unless the graphics can't keep up. It's also really nice for editing purposes. I'm sure the MX1000 is better in terms of "traction" but when you have a nice surface I wouldn't really go wireless. My mouse was also meant for gaming.

    I bought the mx1000 when it first came out ^_^. I play cs with it and its great, its better than my old feel man logitech mouse..that was a great mouse btw. The reason it lags cause when you don't use it, it turns off to save battery life, and turns back on when you move it. But i have notice no lag what so ever...so i say its a good buy imo. ^_^

    We're not talking about optical mice...

    While waiting for mx518, several months ago, I decided to try mx1000. So I bought it from Bestbuy. Unfortunately, this mouse is no good when it comes to fast reflex fps gaming. It suffers from the same good ol' syndrome of optical mice of the first generation skipping on fast flicks. It was amazing to see that a new mouse from Logitech, after several years of refinement of optical technology (laser in this case), can skip. MX100 had to go back the next morning.
