Logitech's only mistake

Blake S., Newegg
9 March 2015
  • Summary: I am still a full Logitech supporter and future customer of theirs. Pretty much every keyboard and mouse I own is made by Logitech and none of them have had any issues. Even the temporary replacement I am using for my G500 is a 15-20 year old Logitech optical mouse with a simple scroll wheel, still...
  • Pros: Comfort, ergonomics, button lay out, configuration, weight system, smooth/click scroll wheel and pretty much every other feature this product has makes it stellar. Hands down, one of the most thoroughly engineered and designed via real use-case devices on the planet, at the time it was released t...
  • Cons: It doesn't work! At least not 100% of the time... I have gone through 2 of these mice over the past 4 years and each time the same issue happens. Eventually the mouse clicks and laser tracking stop being properly recognized by Windows for periods of time. The pointer moves, but icon's and applica...

DO NOT USE THIS SELLER

Zachary T., Newegg
22 January 2015
  • Summary: Terrible company. No communication, no help, sent me a broken product.
  • Pros: .
  • Cons: CORN took almost 2 months to send me a logitech g500. Once it finally arrived and I plugged it in...it was broken. They sent me a broken mouse. Now for the return, and I bet this will be just as terrible service.

Skip it - Do yourself a favor

joseph C., Newegg
11 November 2014
  • Summary: I loved this mouse.... at first. Within a years use, the double click issue started, leading me to think I had a virus like many others. I realized it was this mouse via a cheap wireless mouse after Logitech refused to help and I began to regret my purchase.
  • Pros: Great gaming mouse while it lasts. Fits my somewhat large hands well. Has a free-wheel mouse with left/right click ability on it. Has DPI change on the mouse. Ability to easily change mouse weight with a quick pop out of the weight mechanism which was wonderful to get the mouse to exactly what yo...
  • Cons: Where to start... As many others have stated, at first this mouse was a gem. After a while the mouse started to double click on its own with the left (AND ONLY the left, the most important for a righty) mouse button. Once this happens you are usually out of warranty and logitech does NOT care abo...

Terrible Support

Jonathon M., Newegg
1 November 2014
  • Pros: Great mouse when i first got it, good fit, looks pretty, high dpi...
  • Cons: about 8 months after getting the mouse, left click started acting up, a lot of people have this problem, and logitech doesn't seem to care at all. RMA submitted and have been waiting WAY too long for a reply. I'm done with logitech and their gimmicky products.

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 ...

Expensive Junk

louis s., Newegg
30 June 2014
  • Pros: Decent gaming mouse while it lasts..
  • Cons: Lasted for about a year of regular use. I bought a $12 off-brand that's lasted me just as long and has about the same grade components. Logitech makes some good products- this isn't one of them.

The fun continues

David M., Newegg
24 May 2014
  • Pros: It's actually a great mouse. Fits my hand nicely, all the buttons are exactly where I want them to be
  • Cons: It won't last. The hammers are cheaply made for the mouse buttons and guess what you'll be holding excessively for video games? I've already had mine warranty replaced and already had to fix the second one after another couple of months. It's not worth the hassle. This is not the mouse you're loo...

Done with logitech

Nick, Amazon
8 March 2014
  • 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.

Logitech Fails again

Jesse R., Newegg
17 February 2014
  • Pros: When I first bought this mouse, like most logitech gear, it was great. The quality felt good, the weight tray was nice, and the on the fly dpi settings are great.
  • Cons: Like most Logitech gear this wore out... more quickly then it should have. Two years after I got it, the mouse buttons are starting to wear out. I get double clicks when I only click once, and if I press and hold it to move, say a web browser from one screen to another, it looses connection and s...

Cord problems

Benjamin R., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Pros: This is an awesome mouse that does everything that it claims.
  • Cons: The cord weave is faulty - within a few weeks the cord underneath began to poke through the woven sheath. At this point the plastic cord comes out of the sheath in two places, about one inch of protrusion each. This creates 2 serious U-turn kinks in the cordage and is an inevitable short waiting ...
