Owned it.

Additional 3 round burst/triple click button near the left click.

Comfortable.

Can you do $30?


When my G500 died I bought a Logitech M500 as a temporary replacement. It's basically a cheaper version of the G500. The same body, but without the fancy finish. Same nice hyper-scrollwheel though, and still has three side buttons that can be programmed. The sensor isn't 100% as accurate as the G500's, but it's 90% there and doesn't have much acceleration. Additionally, it has about 1/10th of the z-axis sensing as the G500, so lifting it up to move it doesn't make your view swing all over like it does with the G500.


Logitech sent me a refurbed G500 as replacement for the one that broke, but the exterior was in worse shape, and after a week of using the low-dpi, low-z-axis M500 I can say that the M500 is better for me, and is a very badly overlooked choice as a budget gaming mouse.

What is your current mouse?
Do you like the way it currently feels?
What options are you looking for?
What type of grip do you use?
What surface are you using? If it is cloth, use the desk.

I'll give you this mouse for free if you want. I don't use mine.

Alright, but do you like the feel of the mouse? Mice can be very picky. Just grabbing any high-performance mouse would not make a difference if its feel is poopy.

What kind of grip you use?
post #10 of 13

OP if you don't need side buttons:

Wheel Mouse Optical



If you want some extra buttons:

Intellimouse Optical



Intellimouse Explorer 3.0



Ebay has come good prices for the Explorer 3.0... the good version too. Ebay also has the Intellimouse Optical at better prices.

PS: I can give you reasons why not to by any other mouse suggested in this thread.
