from completed build FinalBuild 2019-2021
Original build had a Corsair M65 Elite WHite mouse, to keep with the Gigabyte/Corsair theme. The mouse was very good, although the shape was not EXACTLY for my grip. Good enough I guess. But the mouse started failing (middle-click issues), and ended up being RMAed. I had an old white G703 lying around, the older version with the pixart sensor, so pulled it out while I got my replacement. I had forgotten how GOOD these mice are, how well they fit me, and how much more confortable it is to use a wireless mouse. It hit me so hard, that I ordered a new G703 Lightspeed mouse with the new Hero sensor. They only sell them in black, so played the face-off surgeon, and exchanged shells between the two, so I now have a new G703 Hero in white. Sadly for my M65 Elite, even though it was great, it can't hold a candle against this G703. It'll be sold.
Battery life on the new Hero sensor is insane. With the old PWM3366, battery with lights off was about 26 hours... it's over 60 with the new Hero sensor, and tracks just as well, if not better. Surprise benefit is that the Hero version weighs almost 10g less. HIGHLY recommended mouse. Never going wired again, and no, I don't care it disregarded the Gigabyte/Corsair theme I was orignally going for.

Fantastic comfort after adapting (back) to a palm grip, clean look, and great battery life.
I'm satisfied with the weight - there is an additional disc weight included if you need it.
