I'm not saying the G502 is the same, but you can't go by that stuff. CPI count sells. So does good looks. People don't even know companies like Zowie exist, unfortunately.
Upset cause the 500 is not a mouse made exactly for you and/or your playstyle leads you to talk bs as usual. Early Roccats, early Mionix', Kinzus, most RATs and whatnot are the worst gaming mice ever made. You know that.

It doesn't really have anything to do with the G500 not being for him. There were a lot of things against the G500.

1.) The sensor: Been covered a lot. I don't think it's terrible, but there are better
2.) Weight: Heavy
3.) Sensor location. The sensor was under your fingers. This caused a feeling of acceleration because of the wrist/arm arc
4.) Finish: love it or hate it
5.) Size: Same as the G400 without the benefits of the considerably lighter weight
6.) Scroll wheel: Outside of the G9x, IMO this is the worst scroll wheel to ever grace a mouse.
7.) Price: At the time, this mouse was pretty pricey for what you got. The G9x was more expensive, but provided other benefits that the G500 didn't offer that set it apart.

Some of this stuff is definitely personal preference, but everything combined makes it very difficult to recommend this device to anyone. I used it for a while, but it didn't take long to realize that if I wanted that shape, the G400 was better in almost every possible way. Even if you like heavier mice, the G400 still provides other benefits that make it preferable to the G500 overall.

In earlier batches the switches I believe also had a reliability problem. And like divine said, Dat scroll. Terrible. Keep trying to put words in my mouth though when I'm clearly stating an opinion shared by just about everyone on the forum. The G500 wasn't good.

I agree with DD on most part. I didn't put words in your mouth, metal. I just seen players doing a very good job using it vs. people with probably less good mice, myself included. Feelingwise I would say, for me it was an upgraded from Xai in almost every point. You can't imagine how fast I returned the 2 G400 I had (with and without angle snapping). And that's mostly because I raised my sensitivity over the years. Aiming out of the wrist, so to say, is just more comfortable than moving your whole arm. And you can get as good as you are with low(er) sens. I did it and I know people who had higher sens than me (up to 2x my sens) and kicked my ass nontheless. And that was when I was stilly playing CS 1.6 ~ 6-10 hours a day. A mouse will surely help you to get better, but it won't make you Extreme Masters champion. You can't assume everyone shares your playstyle. And about the wheel I really believe you won't want something else after you got used to that kind of wheel. G500 is just not complete trash as you almost always try to let it look like. That's all.

actually... that was genuine lol.
I know some people dislike it, but i enjoy it a lot.
That free spin is awesome, it's useless for gaming, but the cranted mode is there, so you don't really lose anything.

Both mode are terrible to use, and the switch underneath the wheel is crap, especially for gaming. frown.gif

I don't mind the wheel, but that might be due to the fact that I'm just grateful they didn't put the G9X and G500 version of the free scroll wheel in the mouse. The only thing that bothers me about the mouse wheel in game is lifting and setting the mouse down in rapid succession causes the wheel to clunk.

Never once did I say it was bad only for me. It is notorious for its issues that have nothing to do with personal preference. Like I said, the scroll wheel and the button reliability problems and the sensor position are all very relatively subpar. Jesus I'm not max or roach. Don't bring sensitivity or playstyle or anything into this. Someone was saying what OCN thinks is the best mice should sell the best and that's false. That is all I am trying to make as a point. Jeeze.

I called it trash because it just doesn't make any sense the way they combined what they did together to make that thing. A much better job could have been done on the 500.
