That aside I love the G500! great mouse once you get used to the sensor position.

There is no way you can feel the different.

Its noticeable, what makes you think you can't notice the difference? Heres an example of a Rapoo mouse, same sensor position, same effect.

Front engine,
front-engine-type mouse original structure, so you move the wrist in the same distance greater range of mouse cursor, giving you the competitive advantage to defeat the enemy.

Its not a flaw but a preference, and I prefer a centered sensor.

The mouse moves as one object, basically every single point on the flat bottom moves at the same speed if it is a real horizontal surface.

Base on physical, it should be the same.

You're missing the point, the forward placed sensor is going to cover more surface area than a centered sensor if you pivot the mouse like that. If you're used to a centered sensor mouse then that can really mess with your muscle memory.

lol, no. If you rotate the mouse, the center will stay still while the tip will move a lot. Everybody handles a mouse differently, but I'd bet even palm-grippers rotate the mouse to some extent when using it. As somebody else said, it's not necessarily a "flaw", but it's a gigantic difference and will take some time to get used to.

I tried the G500 and G700... Ended up returning the G500 and giving away the G700... I could deal with the sensor placement but the accel and difficulty with small movements were just too terrible to deal with, and the scroll wheel is pretty bad for gaming (though it's very nice for web browsing and general computer use). Ended up just buying another mx518....

I work for a certified professional ergonomist and in discussions about the arms natural movement, the elbow will remain stationary while you pivot your arm, or smaller movements with your wrist. Either way you are moving in a natural arc on your pad while one of your joints remains static. No person moves the sensor across the pad in a straight line, as doing so is completely unnatural and uncomfortable. Think about it. The point to be made here is that with the sensor being higher up on the mouse, your normal sensitivity will likely feel higher because of the natural motion causing the sensor to move farther than it normally would if it was centered.

right now I would probably get the g400 since its on sale at newegg. I'm using the g500 which I got when it was on sale for 39.99 a couple weeks ago. Both are great mice the g500 just has a few more features.
