Title:

Great mouse even if you don't use all the goodies

PostedApril 6, 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
I play one or two online games but nothing that would ever take full advantage of all of the goodies this mouse has. I prefer a corded mouse over a cordless for the most part, but I have owned one logitech cordless that I really liked other than the proprietary batteries and quirky usb charger for same (g7?).
For those of us who will use this for web surfing and calmer games like city of heroes and perhaps guild wars this is plenty of hardware.
I love the ability to adjust mouse weight for more control and another thing that impressed me was the "heavy duty" mouse cord. So many cheap corded mice come with a cord that just looks fragile or easy for the pet hamster to chew through; not here. This cord has a tough nylon covering that should prevent it from being damaged on the sharp edge of a desk or damaged if pulled hard by the monster sibling etc.
The case is mildly rough making it feel good in your hand (doesn't slip in your hand). Mine is the standard right hand mouse, I don't know if they make one for lefties, a lefty might be able to use this but not sure. The buttons on the mouse are well placed and feel solid. One really different feature is that the scroll button in the center is "shifted" a bit to the left making it a lot easier to manipulate on the fly and it still has the standard third button function as well. There is a button below the scroller to change the number of lines that it moves with each click of the roller.
I've had a number of logitech usb mice, they have always been my favorite for quality and software, I have a logitech gaming keyboard with illuminated keys (G110) as well. The software offers a lot more adjustment than is just available off the mouse, haven't really looked closely at that yet but even without playing with that this is just a great mouse.
Pros:desktop, graphics/photo/flyers, internet mmorpg games

G500

PostedSeptember 18, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Hate this mouse. Cannot get the right weights in to get it adjusted to where it is accurate. Need to click 2 or 3 times to get it to respond. Not accurate at all.

Great Gaming Mouse Overall

PostedJuly 7, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
A feature-rich laser gaming mouse for a reasonable price. The shape and grip are good, plenty of buttons with customization, and although the empty weight was fine for me, the ability to add more if needed is nice. The only reason I didn't give this mouse a five-star rating was due to the scroll. Hard to explain but to me it just feels kind of 'loose', like it's going to give out at any time, or it's going to go too far or not far enough when gaming. I'll also add that they've included a very unusual feature on this mouse; it has 'dirty' spots on the fingertips and palm area. If you look closely at the pics you can see it, but I thought it was shadows in the pics, it's not.
Pros:Gaming, general computing
