Logitech g500

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
What do you guys think of this mouse? I Just bought one off a OCN member yesterday.
post #2 of 20
It's a very nice mouse for around $40. I personally feel it's the most comfortable design right out of the box. no rakish sharp edges, good sensor, corded cable. I prefer my mice as light as possible, so i take out the weights and cartridge.

Another mouse to consider is the g700. it can be used wireless or wired and has better styling---- but at a almost double the price.

There are some die-hard razer mice users on the forums, but for my hand, it's too shallow and narrow to be comfortable. and the logitech G9/G9x feels cumbersome.

my vote goes to the mx518,g5,g7,g500,g700
Enjoy!

i prefer the 500 over the 700 on personal preference. the 500 never feels like anything other than a great mouse.

My hand sweats profusely after using it for a while, which is even more annoying than the filth that accumulated on my mx518 after a year of use.

Its a good mouse. My bro got one recently. Im not 100% with the shape and size of it. But it tracks very well and is accurate.

I personally don't care for the weight, sensor position, and center of gravity (Nose heavy).

Other than that, it's a good mouse for the casual gamer.

Its more than a casual gamers mouse. My bro is 8 hours a day and he owns with it.

Its a good mouse to use. I think the kone's shape is alot better though.

My opinion of course.

having been the only gaming mouse i've used, i really like it. it's a big improvement over OEM mice

switchable DPI is useful, the side buttons are extremely useful, and being able to program them and the mousewheel is also a boon. most of those are standard fatures in mice, but meh.

oh and it's nice and heavy (like heavy mice) and i like that the weight can be increased (mine has all of the heaviest cartridges in.)

i also find it real comfortable, and it's my favorite part of my PC (mind i really like my PC)

Ehh, It just feels awkward lifting and repositioning.

I'd probably enjoy it more if I switched up to wrist based/high sensitivity gaming

Yea i find it annoying lifting and repositioning. I do that alot. I was going to get the mionix naos 5000. But funds are low right now. I do want to try it out. It looks very comfy and i have heard its light.
