Summary: I have a G500, well I HAVE it because I am returning this mouse. It's the same insides with the same (or worse) screaming capacitor. They removed the mouses ability to change some of the buttons. This WOULD NOT DO, so i'm keeping the old one even though this one is bigger and i like the feel better. Just bought some new feet for the old mouse so its feelings aren't so hurt.
Summary: I picked up a G500 to replace a decade-old MX510 that recently died. I've always loved the shape of the MX-series mice, so I was looking for the same sort of thing. In the grand scheme of things, this would be an excellent mouse; it's comfortable, sensitive and smooth. However, the one I received is marred by what (to me, at least) is a fatal flaw. It whines.
Summary: I've had four or five replacements of the (G500) and they all double click after a few months, the last one lasted 6months. I just hope the G500s is better or I'll never buy another. I have a 5yr old Microsoft mouse that works great... I have tons of other Logitech products that I've never had an issue with, just the mouse's always go out. I take that back the Logitech 3D pro switches are junk too...
Summary: I didn't have this mouse for very long before the cord started developing a kink in it. When it arrived in the mail, the cord was already pretty bent but I thought that if I flattened it out and made sure to keep it straight, that it wouldn't get any worse. This mouse is really nice and smooth and I love how it feels in my hands and with the weights, but I was really upset that it didn't last long because of the cord.
Summary: It gave good service for 23 months. Then the left button started doing double-clicks, like others who have reviewed here. I really liked the feel of this mouse. I like them heavy, so I maxed out on the weights, and over a short time realized that using the programmable buttons held no benefit to me. Still, it had a good feel, and I'm sorry but fifty bucks to replace it with one that will also fail is just too much. No more Logitech mice for me.
Summary: I went from a MX510 to this and its meh. The older MX510/518 mice were far more ergonomic, this strains my wrist some. Also, I thought I was crazy about the high pitched noise but now that I see two other people are complaining about the same thing I know I'm not crazy. Its rather annoying but does go away when you move the mouse. Just bothersome and irritating noise. I have never had a mouse make a noise so I suspect its related to the laser.
Summary: This product can't even be considered because the sensor is at the wrong location on the bottom of the mouse. This causes movements of the cursor to not reflect expected behavior based on hand movements. No other logitech mouse has this issue, it is beyond me why they would ruin their high-end product with such a basic fault.
Summary: I purchased this Logitech G500 mouse after my Logitech G400's left-click wore out. Suffice to say, I was disappointed, but there is some good about this mouse. For example, the shape is very similar to the G400's, but slightly improved. The buttons are longer and the grips on the sides are better. When I gripped the G400, my fingers would hang over the edges and my hand would begin to hurt after a while - not so with the G500.
Summary: I bought this mouse about 18 months ago. It is for my home computer, so I have only been using it some evenings and weekends. Over the past 2 months the mouse has become almost unusable due to the left button either registering a double click when I only clicked once, or not registering a press at all when I am trying to drag a window or highlight something.
Summary: The pros - This mouse has a great weight, customizeable for your preference. - The contour of the buttons and their placement is pretty easy to learn though the middle button of the three on the side is somewhat hard to hit at times - Good cable has braided cover etc - Looks cool - adjustable on the fly resolution The Cons -Buttons break making this mouse useless quite fast A friend of mine bought the g500 and then the new one came out right afterward, he wanted a big...
