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. It is extremely frustrating when you go to use your mouse, and it just doesn't work. The common double click issue is always happening, until one day the left click doesn't work at all.

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. When clicking, the issue still occurs and is more severe (left and right click are switched occasionally, mouse click is released without you releasing the button, etc.).

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... the DPI setting indicator lights still work? - Left mouse button. Quote from feature list: "Buttons (Left / Right): 8 million clicks". FAIL.

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. Overpriced judging by the pretty package on outside, but cheap Chinese materials inside.

horrible mouse!

ProShoppr, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The reason this mouse is so horrible is the tracking sensor. My previous mouse was the g518 and the sensor was in the middle (centered). This one has the sensor positioned near the top and it is horrible.  The accuracy stinks and I dont know how anyone could use this for gaming.  Also, the shell is too smooth. At least with the g518 my hand would grip well. This one is too slippery.

"I can't believe it's not better than the G5..."

romeobob87, CNET
12 May 2010
  • Pros: From the G5 to this, for what I was using my G5 for? None. I realise that Logitech are trying to make this a better version of the G5 but for me, this feels more like an RTS mouse now than an FPS mouse.
  • Cons: See Below, too many to fit in 250 characters... >:(

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 under your fingers. The shape is very comfortable, the textured side is great.

Prefer the G400 over this

  • Summary: Compared to my G5 which died after many years of use this mouse feels cheap and nasty in the hand, bought a G400 elsewhere...

Awful

Will Verbeeten, Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: I don't understand why Logitech discontinued the G300. It was a FAR superior mouse, in terms of build quality. As for useability and functionality as a gaming mouse, the G300 had the buttons that all gamers want and was far more customizable. These are junk compared to the G300.

Keeps disconnecting

K. Richardson, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: I have two of these. Absolutely perfect and comfortable to use, except that they keep disconnecting in a totally random way. It's a known problem which makes them useless for gaming and irritating for anything else. It's a shame as it's a very comfortable mouse to use.
