Upgrade from Logitech GPW?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

I'm wondering if there is any wireless mouse that is as good or better than the Logitech GPW?

 

I bought myself some griptape and new feet(idk how the teflon legs/pads are called).

I don't mind moding my peripherials, my headphones are modded and now I've gutted my GPW and also changed the battery for a 2g light one (5x smaller and lighter)

Now, the shape of the mouse isn't the gratest, I like a V shaped mouse (vertical), meaning that the bottom/base of the mouse is little smaller compared to the top, like for example the Viper Mini has it and Roccat Kone XTD.

 

I was thinking about, Razer Viper Ultimate, Steelseries Rival 3 or buying a 3d printer and do the shell myself.

the GPW is basically as good as it gets for wireless mice (atleast for now)

This^ is the best contender as of now, you could also wait for the model O wireless which should be on pre-order today.

designing a shell takes a lot of time and not worth the hassle, also a 3d printer cost way more than just buying a mouse that you like.

I could make a really dope shell tho :D I would design the shell in like 1 week max, issue would be the mounting points BUT the GPW has a inner skeleton like thing so its made of 3 parts, bottom plate, inner skeleton and the shell.

May be pretty dope, But you're missing out on 2 year warranty on GPW, If you haven't used that up yet, and as previously mentioned 3D printers are expensive.. And also the material is another minor cost

The 3D printer was an idea because I always wanted one :D

I can also make a negative form and then use Carbon or something for the shell, I work with car interiors and giving a friend to make the carbon shell isn't anything hard to do, I might do that tbh but I wouldn't have any mounting points.

I have my GPW since over a year and I have also other mice 😛

well if you really wanted to try then its up to you. do remember that you will also need to find a pcb that actually fits, and you will probably end up to design something that is pretty similar to what has been made anyway, but again its entirely your decision.

There are rumors that Logitech will be releasing a GPW "Superlight" in a few months. I think this will be the only real upgrade from a GPW. The Viper Ultimate is good, but I'd say it's more of a sidegrade than an upgrade, unless you really like its shape.
