Excerpt: The Logitech G500s is one of Logitech’s mid-range mice from their well known gaming range. This mouse took over the Logitech G500, the changes made were not incredibly noticeable, Logitech only updated the laser and added a new paint job. I was not sure whether I would see any difference in this mouse’s performance when I heard the changes that had been made.
Summary: I got the G500s to replace my old MX500 when the scroll stopped working. I had no desire to get a wireless mouse and deal with batteries and signal issues. Admittedly, I didn't buy it for gaming, but I was surprised just how sloppy the much-touted new scroll wheel design for Logitech mice is. The precision was nothing like the MX, in any mode. Worse still was the shark skin texture, which was actually slippery to me.
Summary: I bought this mouse because of its similarity to Logitech's G5, which, like the G500s, uses the old amazing MX518 form factor. My old G5 was an amazing piece of hardware with outstanding build quality. The G500s is the opposite. Light from the LEDs emits through cracks where it shouldn't be seen. Buttons feel loose and cheap. There's a new sort of anti-sweat layer on the sides that feels absolutely horrible.
Summary: G500s clearly inherited this problem from G500, the optical lens is unfixed and easily moved when mouse moves, so does the cursor on the screen! I have a German version G500 since 2 years ago, it works well (before that is a China mainland version G500, with an unfixed lens). Now the new G500s has the same problem!
Summary: This mouse was wonderful, great and easy to use....however, after about 1 month of use, during gameplay I might add, all the macros just stopped working. It was so easy to set up these macros at the start, and now nothing I do will work right. Deleted the macros, set up new macros, and still multi-key macros will not work. I'm going back to Razer products, because their software just doesn't stop working. Hardware still works though.....
Summary: I was pretty excited about this mouse (big Logitehc guy) and I was looking to upgrade from my G500 because it randomly decides to stop working during gaming sessions requiring a reboot of my computer. Was at the store the day these hit the shelf and couldn't wait to use it! The first one worked the best, but when you used the middle side button, you had to press it REALLY hard for it to register (So hard, I reported that it didn't work at all on the forums thinking it...
Summary: This mouse uses virtually the same shape as the G500, G7, and G5 of previous generations. It feels good in your hand, the grip is nice and everything. Unfortunately they used poor quality materials inside and the mouse emits a high frequency whine that is even worse when in use. I could hear this from about five feet away. If you are going to try this mouse, buy it from a place that accepts returns in case you have this issue as well.
Summary: I have to fix for the first time after 6 months (!) of use my mouse since i have the infamous double click bug. I have another mouse, Microsoft branded, which works wonders even after 8 years. I didn't expect a mouse costing so much and offering so few, this is probably the last time i buy a Logitech mouse.
Summary: The G500S mouse produces a High pitched whining sound. I have never known of any other mouse to have this problem. I heard from other users also that they complain about this, it seems that it is a hardware defect across all mice from this model and brand. I am surprised Logitech has not recalled to fix this product, its very obviously loud and hurts the ears. It also causes headaches if you are exposed to it for some time.
