Summary: Absolutely superb mouse! Until my wire got pinched at the point where it enters the mouse and like my Logitech G5 only worked intermittently before completely dying on me due to wire issues. The braided cable helps with the issue but you have to be careful not to strain the problematic area.
Summary: All in all, this is a pretty good mouse. This mouse is basically the updated version of the Logitech MX518, which is the mouse I used before this one. It is the same size and shape, with a better sensor, more buttons, and higher sensitivity. Adjustable weight is nice, but I prefer my mice light anyway so I am not using them. In fact, I opened up the mouse and removed the assembly that holds in the weights to lighten the mouse even more, and it works better for me now.
Summary: I got this mouse a few months ago to replace an old Logitech M500 that was dying. It's a good upgrade, it feels more confortable than my old M500. You can adjust the sensibility of the mouse directly on it.
Excerpt: The G500 is a good mouse but I do not like how the paint fades away on the side. Otherwise this is a good mouse. It moves just fine, it clicks fine for the buttons, there is no stutter or any issue with this mouse. Actually I have never had a mouse problem period from any of the mouse brands so this is not anything different. THe mouse comfortably fits in my hand is the shape is nice and goes well with my grip.
Excerpt: This mouse is loaded with buttons! This is great for games with macro like world of warcraft. you can assign one button to fireball, another to fire blast, etc, etc. Just click and there you have it! This feels like the older g5, and is basically an upgrade to that. It's wired, which may be good to some, and bad to others. Personally I prefer wireless, as I find it reliable enough that disconnects and lag are infrequent.
Excerpt: This mouse is for serious gamers. It's got 5 dpi settings that can be activated on the fly. The dpi settings are created and adjusted using Logitech's software, which comes with the mouse. The max dpi is almost 6,000 dpi!! How is multiple dpi settings relevant to the consumer? Well, you could have your lowest dpi setting (which will be indicated on the mouse by an led) be set to a dpi fitting for desktop and email use.
Excerpt: Using this mouse for a couple minutes and I am liking this Logitech product so far. It comes in a transparent plastic casing and it comes with the mouse, a little box full of weights, and a little paper. The shape of the G500 is comfortable and it's low profile enough so that you don't feel like you are cupping a huge hill or a dome, but it's also not so high so that your fingers don't have a hard time clicking the right and left click. I think it's just right.
