Alright mouse, shame about the scroll wheel

Jamin B., Newegg
14 May 2015
  • Summary: In an attempt to fix the side-tilt-middle-click thing, I thought I'd try to maybe install SetPoint and customize the buttons. If nothing else, give up left tilt by mapping it to the same action as regular middle click, so that movement would work more reliably for me. Bad idea.
  • Pros: Love the ergonomic shape and thumb buttons. Bought it to replace a years-old MX518, which has a similar form factor, that had finally given up the ghost a few months ago. Seems responsive enough. Good cord length (some of us still want our mice to have tails!). Nice, smooth feel. Quite profession...
  • Cons: The "tilt wheel" is... just... terrible. There's a toggle button right behind it for whether you want it to spin freely or normal, uh, clicky-scroll mode. Seems pretty gimmicky to me, but I guess maybe someone, somewhere has a good use for the "just fling the wheel with wild abandon, reach the bo...

Okay, but not a gaming mouse

Zachary K., Newegg
13 March 2015
  • Summary: Okay for the price but you only get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Bought as a replacement for a 6 year old Logitec MX518 that had started to have issues. Comfortable with scroll wheel and forward/back browser buttons. Tilt and wheel click take just a bit of getting used to. The ability to toggle the wheel ticks is occasionally amusing if not any more practical ...
  • Cons: I found it not sensitive enough to recommend use without mouse acceleration. Its 1000 dpi was a noticeable step down from the 1800 dpi of the MX518 it replaced. For example selecting the desired position between two adjacent letters in the same word can be awkward. This makes it not an acceptable...

clunky scroll wheel

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2014
  • Pros: nice in the hands, tracking is above average.
  • Cons: Logitech has tried to incorporate way to much into its scroll wheel on this mouse, the result is a clunky scroll wheel and an inconsistent click from it. In several mmog's I play the scroll click is used for acquiring targets, and on this mouse it misclicks at least half the time. Also the scroll...

Mediocre mouse based on prior Logitech products

Tiemen S., Newegg
22 February 2014
  • Summary: Make it a bit heavier for more precise movement and coat it with something that feels more pleasant.
  • Pros: Ergonomic, sturdy
  • Cons: Surface texture is rough, uncomfortable, click is too "light" for me, lots of unintended clicks; it has no weight to it allowing little precision movements.

Lasts for about a year

Daniel M., Newegg
27 December 2013
  • Pros: Pretty comfortable feel, button clicks aren't too loud, scroll feature is useful
  • Cons: - Back button can be accidentally pressed too easily - Cheap grip material, eroded in a few weeks - After about a year and a half of ownership, I found myself not being able to highlight text easily; overall click responses were poor after a while

OK Mouse/Quality Changed?

Anonymous, Newegg
6 November 2013
  • Pros: The mouse has a nice heavy feel to it.
  • Cons: I've bought one of these before a year ago or so, and the mouse had a nice glossy finish on the top side that felt smooth. Now, here in 2013, I buy the same mouse again, and the I see that the top side is not glossed at all. It feels rough and raw. Did the quality standards drop since I bought my...

Great features, but scroll wheel quality issues.

Degs, reviews.logitech.com
5 May 2013
  • Summary: I have this mouse for about a year now. I bought it for the features; numerous buttons, fast scroll wheel and a comfortable grip. The good: While on some websites it is advertised as having 5 buttons (more or less accurate in general), with software installed that could potentially be increased to 7...

Not great, not awful

Douglas N., Newegg
11 March 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased a G500 for gaming at home. I wanted to grab another for work, but could not find any as cheap as the one I had already bought; thus I decided I would try the M500, which seemed a lot like an "office" version of the G500.
  • Pros: - Smooth movements on a plain white desk with no mouse pad; good enough for work purposes - Mechanical switch to lock/unlock the mouse wheel for hyper scrolling, or standard notch-by-notch scrolling
  • Cons: - If you install the SetPoint software, the middle mouse button defaults to "application switcher", rather than enabling the standard autoscroll feature. Easy enough to switch it back, but really I shouldn't have to. There's nothing wrong with alt+tab or winkey+tab, Logitech. Leave it alone. - Ag...

Quality, but not my cup of tea

Kenneth B., Newegg
25 December 2012
  • Summary: Even after nearly a year, I find myself hitting the forward back buttons by mistake. Usually when I move my hand from typing back to the mouse. My thumb hits one of the buttons while finding its home in the curved shaped design.
  • Pros: Almost a year of use without one glitch Tilt wheel
  • Cons: Constantly hitting the side forward/back buttons by mistake. Could be heavier
