Worst Mouse Ever owned

Christopher T., Newegg
13 January 2012
  • Summary: Was a super impressive mouse before the cord committed suicide
  • Pros: Worked awesome, I loved all the mouse had to offer. Great dpi settings I loved the on the fly toggle.
  • Cons: After three months the cord snapped, it began to coil before long there were wries bulging out of the threaded mesh, eventually the cables began to split where they finally severed and the mouse stopped working.

Bad button resistance

Brandon B., Newegg
24 September 2009
  • Summary: After a week of using this, my hand ached from pushing the scroll wheel, and from trying to not accidentally push the right button. The mouse was unusable for me.
  • Pros: - Attractive appearance - Comfortable shape - Good build quality - Unusual texture - Weights and DPI systems seem to work well
  • Cons: - Scroll wheel had too much resistance for clicking - Right button had too little resistance - Setpoint software interfered with my computer's Stand By mode

Good mouse bad MIR

kevin q., Newegg
28 August 2009
  • Summary: One egg because I love Newegg, and one egg because I love the mouse.
  • Pros: Never thought the weight's would matter but I snipe a lot in my FPS and it helps. Was using a Logitech MX-518 and thought I would never go back. Lasted me 3 years before the cable got loose. Decided on higher DPI, laser, and the same about of buttons.
  • Cons: One of the reasons I got this was the MIR because I could have gotten the revolution for about the same price at the time but with a MIR I decided to go with this. Well, sent everything asap and got a card in the mail just as fast telling me I didn't have the UPC with the MIR. I did it's not on t...

  • Cons: Mouse worked great for @ 5 Months, then the Red LED for the optical sensor burned out making the mouse erratic and unusable. Logitech email support was no help.

7 November 2007
  • Summary: I am a linux user, so I use middle button a lot. Unfortunatelly I haven't reed reviews here before baught this garbage. Looks like they did not think long, just put useless future for marketing (that tilt buttons) and broke usable one (middle button and wheel). Mouse went to garbage.
  • Pros: DPI, weight control
  • Cons: Wheel and middle button.

Disappointed

Allan D., Newegg
25 September 2007
  • Summary: I would have given this 5 eggs if it weren't for the 1 Con that I posted. I couldn't give this an average 3 eggs either because an average mouse would work as you would expect. This mouse doesnt. Problem: middle mouse wheel has a flaw.
  • Pros: + Cord threaded (easier gliding) + Weight system? + DPI and Tracking
  • Cons: - Horrible Scroll Wheel / 3rd button

Flawed

Anonymous, Newegg
17 September 2007
  • Summary: This being a gaming mouse, less buttons doesn't make any sense. The fact that logitech has released another version of the G5 for 20$ more than this one that fixes all it's problems makes me wonder.
  • Pros: Extremely smooth mousing, best of any mouse I've ever used. Size and weight are perfect.
  • Cons: Missing forward button on the side, once you get used to it you can't have a mouse without it. The middle mouse button/scroll/tilt wheel is very poorly designed. It takes a great deal of force to click the middle mouse button and you click the tilt wheel by mistake on almost every click. No real ...

Logitech G5

merlin, Amazon

  • Summary: Ihre Tasten wackeln und fallen nach einiger Zeit ab, was vom Gerätehersteller so gewollt ist, da dieser für viel Geld Ersatztasten verkauft, die extra aus den USA geordert werden müssen.
