been using this at work for a few years. Great mouse!

shaosam 02-19-2013 09:55 AM

I spend all day on the computer at work and then like to play PC games at home. This is my favorite mouse, gaming or otherwise, of all time.

Zude 02-19-2013 10:50 AM

Always been my favorite... just decided to pick one up for work so I can have that glorious free-fly scroll wheel.

HaHaAtSimon 02-19-2013 11:12 AM

I loved the mouse, but after going wireless I don't think I can go back.

1337tard 02-19-2013 03:29 PM

Good mouse, got sick of breaking my deathadder so got one of these, can't believe what I was missing out on.

Using this mouse and the G5 version. I would pay a little more and grab the G5 if you are planning to game.

QuickStriker 02-20-2013 02:18 PM

This vs...... G400???? 10 dollar difference.... one mouse to game...

baphomet58 02-20-2013 05:42 PM

best mouse i've ever used, but the braided cord is horrible

G5 is old. They don't make it anymore it goes for $100-150 on ebay.

Meetloaf 02-20-2013 05:50 PM

Love this mouse.

rekd0514 02-20-2013 05:54 PM

Great price for probably one of the best mic ever made.

Another-Nocturn 02-20-2013 05:54 PM

ive gone through several of these, they are fantastic, HOWEVER, after about a year, you'll notice the left button seems to take get a loose spotty connection (which is really evident when trying to click drag - your items will keep dropping). If you search logitech's forums you'l see its a common problem. I submitted a support ticket on the last instance and they sent a replacement almost immediately. the replacement is beginning to show the same exact problem. Still my fav mouse though, despite the short lifespan

Both are good mice (which I own and use regularly). If I were to get one for another computer though, I'd probably go with the G500 since I prefer the laser to the optical since sometimes I don't use it on the best surfaces and the laser seems to track alot better. Also I'm a fan of the braided cable.

Same here, it just doesn't get better than this mouse. I have the perfect weight with the added weight system. The super scrolling is amazing on large web pages. I have the perfect sensitivity set on this mouse too. If I lost those mouse settings I'd seriously be pissed off. I can click things faster than I could with a darn touchscreen. :heart::heart:

I suspect these are A) Frivolous spenders or B)Hard-Core gamers that do not want to get used to a new mouse.

cHaNg-sTa 02-20-2013 06:21 PM

I will always trust Logitech's gaming mice. Razer... Steelseries... No need. Logitech Mouse FTW. Thumbs up.

TidalWaveOne 02-20-2013 06:23 PM

Great mouse... though my left mouse button eventually started to "double-click" but Logitech sent me a new replacement. I use it all day as a software engineer.

Ignatius 02-20-2013 06:31 PM

Got this mouse year or so ago, absolutely love it. Customizable DPI settings, switch on the fly from up to 5 of them, all stored in the mouse's internal memory with Logitech's software. Not to mention the weight system.

Only issue I've had is that the scroll wheel is a bit loose (even when locked, not free-wheeling) compared to the mouse I replaced, the MX518.

Interesting. I'm using the MX518 right now and just purchased this. Sure I'll get used to it.

z32tt 02-20-2013 07:02 PM

Should I get this or Apple Magic Mouse?

iBoo 02-20-2013 07:02 PM

Its too bad that this mouse includes hardware acceleartion from what I read.. http://www.esreality.com/?a=post&id=2024663


-Logitech G9x, Logitech G500 (Avago ADNS-S9500). Positive acceleration.
I have the G400 Logitech Gaming Mouse and its meant for palm grippers. I finger tip/claw grip this mouse and planning to return it for a CM Storm Spawn but then the 1 year warranty... dont know

if you're looking for a claw grip, palm or finger tip mouse , check out this link :

DiiShen 02-20-2013 07:16 PM

I've been using this mouse for 4 years, great durability and accuracy but not as comfortable down the stretch as my friend's Naga or R.A.T...although my hand is bigger than normal (can palm a basketball)

tsmetz 02-20-2013 07:23 PM

I've used both the G5 and G500 and they are both fantastic mice. If I didn't already get a new mouse, I would jump on this. The only reason I went from G5 to G500 was because my G5 broke and Logitech replaced it with the G500 for free even though I was outside of the warranty. Just recently the cable on my G500 broke, so I had to get a new mouse. Now I'm using the G700 wireless mouse, and although I like it, I still miss my G500 and G5. I liked having 3 mouse buttons on the side instead of 4. I used to use the middle button for play/pause, and with 4 buttons, it just feels awkward to set one of them up for that.

One issue with all of the mice for me was middle clicking. With mice that can have the middle mouse button (scroll wheel) click to both sides as well, it can seem a little harder to middle click. I solved this problem by just setting up left click as a middle mouse click function.

OJ47 02-20-2013 07:32 PM

Great mouse. Ive been using it since the last FP slickdeal for $40.

RedLeg 02-20-2013 07:41 PM

Well, time to retire my 8 year old mouse that I bought on August 25, 2005. Logitech MX1000, it's been a good run. This thing can probably last another 8 years but its a pain in the ass to charge it every 3 days.

The only reason I noticed is that I play TF2 and use a setup that requires a lot of weapon switching, for the first month or two of owning it, I was constantly overscrolling to my next weapon. You get used to it after awhile though and adjust. Still miss my MX518 though, it was pretty much dead at the time I replaced it.

JimboLodisC 02-20-2013 08:00 PM

using this mouse right now, absolutely love it... never really tried that many mice in my lifetime but I don't feel like straying from my G500

personally, I put every single weight piece in... I like a heavy mouse for precise control

I am wondering How you like the g700, how bad is the lag , do you notice it. Thinking if i should go for the g500 since this is a great price for solid wired gaming mouse, But that g700 does look slick. Dont know which to choose... Great Deal none the less.

Personally I think it's noticeable.

I'm on my 2nd G500. Been using it since they discounted the G5. I've bought the razor and corsair high end mice, but keep coming back to the G5.

Bummer was hoping the lag was not noticeable. This deal Seem to be more temping now, corsair Mouses are Nice Aesthetically IMO, But I dunno how good they are. One thing the pattern area of the g500 is that soft-touch or plastic..? Anyways thanks for the feedback.

lemonz54 02-20-2013 08:36 PM

How is the scroll wheel on this mouse? Does it click? Or does it scroll smoothly without any breaks?

I honestly don't notice anything. I got the g700 on sale for $50, which seems about right for it. If I had to choose between this for $40 and the g700 for $70 (current price on Amazon) I would go with this. I do like the option of going wireless, or using a cable with the g700, I just don't really care for the 4 buttons instead of 3 on the left side of the mouse.

Both. there is a button under the scroll wheel that lets you switch between the two.

iamcyclopseatme 02-20-2013 09:03 PM

Best thing? Logitech will replace your G500 without an issue. Picked one up for when my old one goes out and I need a new one while its being replaced. Their support is EXCELLENT for RMAs.

Best mouse Ive ever used.

For gaming...G400 is hands down one of the best, if not the best, mouse for gaming. It has the most neutral (best) sensor that truly translates ones hand movements without any artificial acceleration or angle snapping (avoid these at all costs for gaming). Ignore the laser vs optical circlejerk because it makes zero difference when you're gaming on a decent/proper mousepad/surface. The only reason you'd go laser is if you were to use the mouse over non-optimal surfaces, which shouldn't be the case to begin with if you are gaming. Google: gaming mouse hierarchy

mydecember1985 02-20-2013 09:25 PM

This mouse and OCZ behemoth = WIN.

Very smooth, best I''ve ever used. The ONLY thing I wish I could find in a mouse is a quieter click action. I have one of Logitech's backlit keyboards and it's great for this. Very quiet. Girlfriend is very light sleeper. :(

tyman 02-20-2013 09:31 PM

I have the dreaded whine noise on mine. I warrantied it two weeks ago and the replacement one makes the same noise.

Ugh.

AllConsoles 02-20-2013 10:13 PM

I don't game all, and I have two of these. I felt need to get one for use at work just because I have been spoiled by the programmable buttons. DEFINITELY take advantage of the programmable buttons! You can program different buttons for different applications! (I didnt utilize this amazing function until after 2 years of using my first g500). Now I got different functions for my buttons for Firefox, excel, Spotify, Thunderbird, etc. LOVE IT

dragonre 02-20-2013 10:19 PM

I do like this mouse a lot. I own 2.

I second this. I love the mouse but I've probably gone through about 5 mice so far. 4 of them were replaced by Logitech for double click/ button not holding problem. There is a DIY FIX. If you aren't tech savvy its probably too complicated but worth a try if your mouse is out of warranty. So first time buyers beware of the button issues.

Xenomorph 02-20-2013 10:24 PM

The only gripe I have with my G500 is I do not like the small back button on the side of the mouse. I prefer it to be much larger like the G5. Might pick up a G400 one of these days to try it out. Other than that it's a great mouse.

Joe88 02-20-2013 10:26 PM

you can get a g9x instead for the same price (you just have to deal with a mw3 emblem on the grip which can be replaced/scratched off) http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Ga...ywords=g9x

G700 for $50 thats not bad, I am in no rush, I guess I will wait for a deal on the g700. Care to share where the g700 can be had for that price..?

I've had mine for two years and still going strong. I love it. Great if you have bigger hands. I use mine for work, just grabbed another for future use.

I agree. I've gone through 4 Logitech gaming mice of all different models and they've all developed this same issue within a year of daily use. Some of them didn't even last half a year. The only Logitech-made mice I've owned that didn't crap out on me was the original MX Revolution, which has long been discontinued and replaced.

I generally like Logitech products but don't trust their mice. Been using a Razer Lachesis (original) for 2+ years and a 2012 Razer Naga for a few months and both of them are doing fine.

It was an Amazon sale. It's been around that price a couple times, so just keep your eyes out.

yahu 02-21-2013 02:30 AM

^this re: the g700. Also at Fry's for that price...or I had them PM (can't recall). I do love my g700's - one for work and one for home. I don't really notice any lag for FPS or RTS.

Initial_G 02-21-2013 04:31 AM

x2 on Logitech gaming mice not last past a year or two. I just stopped buying them after a couple tries especially since my cheapie mouse the came with an old pc still works while the more expensive Logitech have connection issues.

holyherbiness 02-21-2013 05:16 AM

I love this mouse, but what i really love is logitech's customer service. my mouse cable got all twisted up due to a manufacturing defect, and i let them know, citing the fact that any moment it could stop working and they sent me a new mouse free! Sweet!

5thElement 02-21-2013 05:36 AM

Dont buy this. The mouse wheel spins freely and you never know when the next step is. SO annoying.

Just like with a lot of companies, they used to be great.

When I submitted my support ticket, it took them SIX DAYS to respond to it. 6. 6 farking days. Then, when I provided the relevant information regarding info/model number/etc., it took them another 6 days to respond to that. Then, the kicker of it all was when it finally was resolved, after almost two farking weeks from when it first started, the guy who emailed me and told me that they were sending the replacement part had the audacity to send a survey link in the same email. Are you flipping kidding me? You made me wait 6 days each time to respond and you have the idea to send me a survey? Aw hell naw.

Erm, the little button behind the scroll wheels locks down, taking it out of free spin.
