Summary: I have owned my MX500(with the 3d dimpled look) since 2006. It has worked across every windows platform since then, and every linux distro i have used. It has never failed me, i have had 5 PC builds since then and several laptops, and each time it works like a charm.
Pros: Sleek design. Extremely comfortable to hold for hours of geeking/nerding/neckbearding out. Just the right amount of buttons with easy access while not being in the way at all. Adjustable DPI on the fly, for when you need to go from minute scoped in shots from across the map, to super fast "twitch...
Summary: -IGN:"Recommended almost without reservation." -I've still got my MX500. It still works, perfectly, after 12 years. -Product heritage: MX500 -> MX518 -> G400 -> G400s -I worked tech support for a major computer manufacturer
Pros: -Long-lasting left-click and right-click -Perfect weight, slightly heavier than the G400s -Good feel, slightly "tackified" sides for good grip -no "open palm heel area" which you get with the Razer Deathadder
Cons: -polling is about 125Hz -800dpi -not ambidextrous: designed for right-handed gamers/users -optical -no longer being manufactured
Summary: This is my 3rd Logitech mouse, the one I replaced still works, just wanted a nicer/updated model. My 1st Logitech mouse lasted over 5-6 years w/heavy use. Replaced it only cause left click wore out. I hope this one lasts that long.
Pros: Finish, matches my other components that are black/silver. Easy to setup, comfortable feel. Installed in WinXP Pro and in Xandros 4.x w/no concerns. Even in Xandros [Linux] it detected the mouse as the MX500, and gave me the option to adjust resolution, etc.
Cons: Thumb buttons took some get'n used too, first night i used it i kept hit'n them; no problem w/them now though. Be nice if the MX500 had a backlight in blue on buttons and logo to match my G11 keyboard.
Summary: I've used this mouse for about 6 weeks now with my Logitech G15 gaming keyboard and it's a winning knock-out punch for me in WoW, EVE, UT2004 and all my other games and applications.
Pros: Very comfortable ergonomic design, great positioning of buttons, very elegant feel. The sensitivity is amazing and the mouse controller software gives you a vast amount of configuration options including multiple profiles for different games. Logitech scores again.
Cons: Install the mouse software BEFORE hooking up the mouse, otherwise you might be in for an annoying time when you get your new mouse. Other than that, no issues!
Summary: button placement seems a little weird but it will take some getting use to.
Pros: Where do i start, this mouse is awesome. Is very comfortable and also has good responce and is perfect for long sits at the comp. Also, the sides of the mouse are like rubber and this makes this mouse easy to keep a hold of.
Summary: I have tried many gaming mice, including: G5/MX1000/MX510/MX500/Copperhead. I should have realized after my first Laser Mouse that the old school MX Optical mice are what is good for gaming.
Pros: The shape is identical to the excellent MX510/MX518, and the shape of a mouse is the most important thing. The sensor in this mouse, tracks movement up to very very fast speeds, you cannot make it skip like laser mice will. This is aruably the best low sensitivity player's mouse ever made. If you...
Cons: You need to install the driver for 400 dpi to work. The silver doesn't match my computer case just right? After about 2-3 years of heavy gaming the cord will probably start wearing out, requiring replacement or surgery. Although TBH, there are no flaws with this mouse.
