Summary: I have owned several Logitech gaming mice. The G5, the MX500, the G9, and now the G500s. The only other mouse I have had is a Saitek MAD CATZ RAT 7. I loved the size and feel of the Rat 7, however the optical sensor had issues, every now and then the mouse would stop tracking. The only real complaint I have about the G500s is the size. To me, it is too narrow for my hand to rest on it comfortably.
Summary: The mouse is amazing. It's comfortable, the software is easy to use and helpful, and the mouse itself is great for action games. The adjustable weight really helped me. Here's the big problem. The mouse emits a terrible, high pitched noise that resembles buzzing. It's constant and never-ending. It's ANNOYING. I know that scientifically, as people age, they are less able to pick up higher pitched and lower pitched noises, so for older people, this shouldn't be a problem.
Summary: This is a great mouse. I've owned quite a few mice over the last 5 years. Most of them had great features, but lacked durability or quality in the build. Logitech products have never failed me. The price range for the gaming mice on the market is pretty silly. The a good bit of the more expensive mice are poorly made.
Summary: Hey i love the mouse just like my trusty g500. The only difference is i can not change my buttons to generic buttons anymore. Why they got rid of this feature in LGS i do not know, but im really hoping they put it in a coming update or just let the g500s work with the old setpoint. Either way i would be fine with.Other than that great mouse just wish i could change my buttons to generic buttons.
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.
