Solid mouse, disappointing fault,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech G500s Laser USB Gaming Mouse (Personal Computers)
When it came to replacing my G5 (the side buttons had started to come loose after a couple of years of being mashed) I initially went for a cyborg rat; which was a terrible idea as the mouse was a horrible shape and the main buttons felt really flimsy. After that fail I decided to play it safe and go for another Logitech mouse.
I ended up with the g500s, the grandson of the G5. After a couple of days I noticed that the high pitched whine I had been hearing (right on the edge of what I can hear) was actually coming from the mouse. Searching around it is apparently a common(-ish I haven't had this problem with my g5 or my previous mx518) complaint about with Logitech mice.
Whining noise aside it a great mouse; solid side buttons and a nice switchable mode scroll wheel. Also you can reassign the dpi switching buttons in this version of the software too; which is a nice upgrade from the previous version of the software. It's just a bit of a lottery; if you are unlucky enough to get one with a noisy capacitor like me you'll probably be less happy with your new mouse than you might otherwise be...

How is the scroll wheel like mate?, I have had a G5 for years now, I decided at one point to upgrade to a Corsair M90, but within the period of about 6 months I had 3 replacements, and the scroll wheel kept messing up like when I would be scrolling in a game to switch gun it would go crazy, would keep scrolling back and forth or the same with web pages? Eventually I got sick of it and decided to break it when the third one gave out instead of going through the hassle of constantly returning it, so I was just wondering if the scroll wheel is solid and if this mouse is a worthy upgrade from the G5 seeing as that is what I have switched back to after actually trying a couple of different mice as upgrades which all never worked out.
