G500 is heavier and slightly better build quality. It also uses a laser instead of optical, but you'd probably not notice a difference other than DPI. Oh, also I believe only the G500 as a free glide and click action middle button.

I got the G500 and really like it.

Not had any issues. I thought I had jitter, but turns out my pad was dirty. I use a Steelseries QCK+.

Only grievence was that the DPI buttons are in a stupid place. I re mapped them to scroll left and right on the middle scroll wheel.

the STEELSERIES STEELPAD 4HD yeah it's a great pad but it's expensive 23/20 euro

If you're gonna buy the G500 grab a Hardpad as the sensor tracks the best on one. You will have a 5% fluctuating positive mouse acceleration on a soft pad.

I personally prefer the G400. G500 is just too heavy.

Do you post this in every mice thread? Honestly it helps no body, and is just a useless post.

Thank you for such insightful input. Your post really helped me! wink.gif

I would say the G400, I owned the G500 and it was too heavy and too big for my preference.
I loved the ergonomics of my old G5, which has nearly the same exact shell as the G400.

If you previously used the mx518 (probably not), the g400 is basically a replica of it, sans the glossy palm finish.

I have both mice, and prefer the g400 since it's lighter, and I prefer the grip of the g400/mx518/g5. You should try both mice out first, as grip preferences are a personal thing.
