Failed within 9 months

Porter S., Newegg
1 August 2014
  • Summary: The last two failures indicate an overall lack of quality. My next mouse will, hopefully, be something else. I like the form factor, but quality has been a real issue. I don't understand, if I pay ~$50-$70 for a mouse, why the cord can't be a 14 gauge twisted cable.
  • Pros: Lots of buttons. Easy programming. The weight tray was interesting... i liked being able to tune the weight of the mouse.
  • Cons: Failed within 9 months. My last two Logitech gaming mouses have both failed within a year. I could be working with the mouse and it would simply start connecting and disconnecting. Eventually it stopped connecting completely. Wire cover failed within weeks. The wire has a woven nylon outer layer ...

Done with logitech

Nick, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned this mouse for less than 2 years, and once again, it has stopped working. I've owned the Logitech G5, G7, and G500. I love the way they way these mice fit in my hand, but other than that, they are trash. I've gone thru replacements of each model.

Mouse Laser Problems

Anson C., Newegg
4 December 2013
  • Summary: As of 12/4/13, the tentative rating for this mouse is 1. For some reason, my mouse won't work on the mouse pad I currently own. It's a cheap, spongy blue material that has worked fine with all my other mice. It also won't work when I use standard computer printing paper as a mouse pad,either.
  • Pros: Design feels good Weights are a nice touch
  • Cons: Can't get the thing to work (barely reads movement using current mouse pad. Has nothing to do with sensitivity setting)

Shot in the foot design

Sylvester R., Newegg
27 October 2013
  • Pros: Ive wanted to replace my trusty Logitech G5 mouse now for a while now but could always find weaknesses or faults with other products. Now that the new G500s is out which is a descendant (same shape) as my G5, and its issues have been resolved with the latest firmware, I figured now would be a goo...
  • Cons: ... this product has one crippling problem. While the G5 has two smooth rounded thumb buttons that are above the area where the thumb rests, the G500s has three buttons, none of which are smooth/rounded. The middle button is rectangular and intrudes into the thumb rest area. The result is that th...

Do not purchase

Inputs and Outputs, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: EDIT: 6/24/2013 -- 25 days after purchase. The G500 has started exhibiting strange behavior after less than 1 month of use. The mouse now sporadically sends left and right clicks to the computer without actually clicking the buttons.

A low durability, mediocre mouse at best

Eric E. West "Eric West", Amazon
25 January 2013
  • Summary: This mouse arrived from Amazon on May 16th 2012, and after < 9 months it has become unusable due to button durability. At times I have enjoyed using it, so I will also try to include some things I liked about it. QUALITY & DURABILITY + I'm trying to think of something positive to say here...

Pretty on the outside, rotten on the inside.

P, Amazon
27 November 2012
  • Summary: I like the shape and button placement, but after about 8 months the LMB started acting flaky and wouldn't hold items while dragging and dropping. At about 10 months Single click now acts like double click. I contacted support and came to the conclusion that this is caused by a bad switch.

Edit - Was a Great Gaming Mouse until it began to fail

Ruebarb, Amazon
18 September 2009
  • Summary: I previously used a G7, and loved the mouse. Now the G500 is amazing to me, the ability to program all of the button with macros is awesome for gaming. The scroll wheel pushes left or right, which are the best buttons I found for gaming, along with the lower DPI and back buttons, all right there...

Stay clear of this one.

saintbrick, Ebay
26 July 2014
  • Summary: Mouse arrived faulty. Braided cable will tear over time. Logitech has had plenty of issues with this before you can find replacement cables online but getting the old cable out is a bitch.

'Gaming' Mouse

Alex Mann, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: Although the mouse looks and feels good, overall very poorly made, all components are so loose, mouse wheel feels awful and unstable, I can't even use the wheel for browsing online without it zipping me to the bottom of the page (?).
