    In short: Logitech has made another "home run".

    This mouse, the G500, is the youngest descendant of the MX500/510 series introduced about 5 years back. Whatever shortcomings that series and its immediate successors had, has been corrected in this great mouse.

    I won't go into details with the product specs, other than say that the 5000 dpi precision of its laser sensor provides silk smooth tracking on most surfaces (supposedly even glass, if one would be foolhardy enough to use that as a mousing surface).

    The mouse is very close to the G5 gaming mouse; same shape, (nearly?) same hand-surface coating (actually, I'm not quite sure if the back coating has the same "gritty" feel of the first G5 mouse, which at bad moments gave associations to nails down a blackboard), same large teflon feet for low mousing surface friction. It has dpi adjustment buttons moved away from the scroll where you would all to easily hit them in the heat of battle. Instead, the MicroGear scroll wheel alternator is placed there, but it has "deep click" action-type button which is not likely to be triggered by accident.

    The side buttons are not just two, but three, akin to the MX revolution and MX1100; only the lower thumb button as found on the MX1100 is moved between the forward/backward buttons, but yet quite distinct form these due to thoughtful molding of these two buttons. There is no chance that you'll accidentally trigger these buttons while your thumb is resting in the thumb groove on the mouse left-hand side.

    The dpi indicator is in deep, ruby red LED's which is a nice change from the everpresent blue LED's on most consumer electronics today, but that is perhaps just my personal quibble.

    Let me start this review by saying that I had a G9x before this. I used the G9x for about 6 months, before I deceided to get rid of it because it was just too small for my hands (I'm 6'4" and have average sized hands for my height). I sold my G9x for just under what I bought it. I bought it for £65. And so, I went looking for another mouse that would do everything the G9x did, but was bigger.

    It just so happens that the G500 is that mouse - and it's £30 cheaper!

    This mouse does EVERYTHING the G9x does except from the on-the-go profile switching and the grip changer. The fact that these features aren't there doesn't matter because the grip on the G500 is perfect and the profile switcher was useless. 5 different DPI settings on a single profile are enough to satisfy anyone. Middle clicking was god-awful on the G9x, but it works a charm on the G500. The G500 also has one more thumb button than the G9x does.

    There are many other nice features to speak of on the G500:
    - The very high DPI.
    - The braided cable.
    - The rubber feet.
    - The easy to install and use software.

    There are no major drawbacks I can think of. This mouse is advertised as a 'gaming' mouse but it can be used for anything. I adore this mouse, and would reccomend it to anyone in a heartbeat.

    So I chose to upgrade to this mouse from the Logitech MX510, only because I've taken the MX510 around the clock and back and its showing its age. So rather than a plain review, how about a comparison.

    Build wise the mouse is spot on (with one important exception -see later). All the buttons are very comfortably placed and respond well. The mouse movement is also very accurate and precise, although in my opinion, the ability to instantly click between 3 scroll speeds is nothing more than a gimmick. Trust me, the difference between the 3 speeds is so great you will never find a practical use for it (this is from someone who has been playing FPS games since Doom).

    I also found the ability to change the weight of the mouse somewhat redundant. I've tried several variations and noticed absolutely no difference in performance.

    But then we come to my biggest reservation about this mouse, the scroll wheel. Its action is just plain awful. The ability to toggle between free scrolling and click scrolling is great (even though you will never use free scrolling in a game). Its problem is the click action on this middle button. It's damn awful. Not only is it much too stiff, but a good 10% of all middle button clicks will not be detected by the mouse. Fatal in FPS gaming. And I'm not alone in this view, the Logitech forums show there are a lot of people unhappy with the scroll wheel for this reason.

    Overall, a good mouse let down by a poor scroll button. How important middle button clicking is to you...should decide whether or not you buy this mouse.

    The G500 replaced my trusty G5 (1st rev) after many years of happy gaming and general computing (the G5 is still working fine, the need for more buttons and better layout made me give in to the G500)

    After considering the drawbacks and benefits of the new mouse, i decided to go for it and try it out.

    The major complaint is the wheel, it is certainly not gaming grade as the steps are too soft when you turn it, and the middle mouse click rarely registers correctly.

    I have alleviated this problem by using the extra button underneath the forward/back keys to act as the middle mouse button as well, which actually helped me a lot during gaming sessions as i never have to move my fingers off the two main buttons (left/right) during a heated session.

    So in essence during gaming i have found the wheel to be almost useless, (using the mouse mainly for Bad Company 2 gaming atm with some light touches of Starcraft 2 Beta and Team Fortress 2) but during browsing and computing sessions it is lovely to have.

    A point has to be made that the wheel on my G5 after years of use has become a bit wonky as others report too, which made the middle mouse click useless on it during gaming as well.

    It is a balance between having the design on the mouse i loved for same years with a new wheel giving me more pleasure during browsing, and the extra buttons and functions (such as a profile able to be saved on the mouse).

    Over the G5 i have lost nothing from the original features that I used but gained pleasure in many more areas.
