post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
SO me trusty ol G5 is still perfect, but wanna try one of them new fangled ones for sake of variety. smile.gif
I got my options down to the Corsair M60 or the Logitech G500.
Which would be better??

I went from an MX 512, to an MX 518, to a G5, to an M60 and had a Death Adder in there somewhere. The M60 is by far my favorite out of those.

There's nothing better about the G500, other than the tilt wheel maybe, for those who actually like that thing. Both have the A9500 sensor and therefore suffer from the same positive acceleration, but the G500's awful sensor placement introduces yet more tracking issues, and people are complaining about accessibility and wear issues with the thumb buttons.

The M60 on the other hand has possibly the best build quality out of all gaming mice at the moment (along with the M90/95) and I haven't seen anyone complain about its button accessibility.

Subjective comfort aside, M60 is easily the better of the two, but I'd wait for the M65 to be available.

Hmm I think I'll grab the corsair. The Aluminum frame, the Corsair Logo and the Corsair quality is mighty hard to resist frown.gif
