    This mouse is a treasure. I can't complain about anything about it.
    Bought 2 of these, one for myself and one for a friend, for 77 pounds (35 pounds each + delivery), They have gone up in price since then.
    If you are looking for a good mouse, don't buy that overpriced Razor stuff. Unless you specifically want the 15+ buttons that the nagas have for something like World of warcraft. If you are just looking for a solid gaming mouse, this is the mouse for you.

    We both put the mouse through quite heavy use (about 3-8 hours of heavy gaming per day, depending on the day) and have had them since june 2012. No faults. No bugs. No dodgy wires. No dodgy buttons.

    Pros:
    * Feels good.
    * Great customization with the included software (can reprogram every button on the mouse, even the DPI buttons)
    * Allows macro creation (can record keyboard / mouse)
    * Interchangeable weights ( I found that having none is most comfortable for me though)
    * Great texture and quality.
    * High quality cover for the wire that doesn't make it feel like a cheap mouse.
    * multiple DPI settings pre-programmable and changeable on the fly (I only have 3 set but I think the max is 5)

    Cons: NONE!

    Dont get me wrong this is a great mouse and as a mouse it had never let me down. The only bad point it is the nylon cable protective cover which is stretches and bulges after a month of use so i had to cut the cover off! thus 4 stars

    I love this mouse so much I have married it. Joking of course, that practice is illegal where I live.

    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.
