If you still want to keep the G500 the only hardpad that was large enough for me was the QPad HeatoN, which is huge. But it comes with all the downsides of a hardpad, like noise, wear on your mousefeet etc. Some other hardpads might be in the 300x300 range though, I think the QcK 9HD is (320x2xx something, I think it was 280)
The G500 is a poor excuse for a gaming mouse(on a hardware level). The sensor is crap. There will always be acceleration, its built into the sensor. Another problem I had with the sensor was the location of the sensor. Its off center, changing the angles you move your wrist/arm at.
The other big no-no on this mouse is the right and left click switch's. They are prone to "wearing out". They will still make the "click" sound but the mouse clicks won't register. Hard to notice if you play FPS game's with lots of full auto weapons....
I traded my G500 for a G400. Sensor is in the right place, no acceleration, durable switch's. Work's great.The last mouse pad you will ever use.
Buy one, cut it in half(width wise) with a fresh razor blade. Use a lighter to heat up the cut you made(on both pads) and press the slightly melted fabric back into the foam. Helps keep it from fraying/lifting off. Been doing this for a very long time(worked great with the G500/400). The pads go though hell and back and will still track like new. They clean off easy too.Edited by KhaoticKomputing - 11/8/12 at 7:15pm
