Title: Logitech G13 and G700S on Amazon US Gold Box deals today
Post by: xyphonic on 10:40 AM - 11/23/14
In my opinion the G13 is the best wired keypad and the G700S is the best wireless mouse for the XIM 4. They're going for $39 and $50 respectively and that's as low as they ever sell for, give or take a few dollars. They ship from Amazon and the sale is only good for today.

i tried the g13 had to take it back couldn't stand not having the control key in the correct spot, no number row, and non mechanical keys.  I think the g700 is a great mouse i have one but its too bulky and heavy gives me wrist cramps during long sessions. I really wish the g602 was higher dpi with 1000 polling rate as thats my favorite wireless mouse.  I also wish a new version of g13 would come out with mechanical buttons with a properly placed cntl key and number row and i would be in heaven. Thanks for sharing these deals though thats a pretty good savings.

Also they have the 602 for $45. Which brings me to asking, which one does the community prefer for wireless only, which is better?

Have you checked out the Razer Orbweaver?  It's similar to the G13 but it has mechanical keys:  http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-keyboards-keypads/razer-orbweaver (http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-keyboards-keypads/razer-orbweaver)

The G602 is listed as incompatible with the XIM 4 on the Hardware Compatibility list.  Personally I love the G700S.  Even outside of using it with the XIM 4, it's my favorite mouse of all time.  It has just the right amount of buttons and as someone who was raised on the Logitech MX518, it's the perfect size for me.  Even though it's wireless it has a high performance mode (and of course you can use it wired) so you can't feel any lag at all. The battery lasts forever too and if it dies you can plug it in and continue playing while it charges.

the g602 works on my xim4 but it maxes out at 2500 dpi and only has 500 polling so its not as smooth as my g502.
