Logitech Gaming Mouse G500

IF TRUTH BE TOLD, PC GAMING CAN ONLY MEAN A WIRED MOUSE
My old (wireless) mouse could loose its connection (and was then slow in responding or turned unresponsive until reset) if the receiver was not in direct visual contact with it. Moreover, there are a lot of negative reviews about rechargeable mice (such as the G700), so my next mouse could only be a wired one.
The G500 comes with an ample length of sturdy yet flexible USB cord - and the fact that it is also braided is a nice touch. Plug it in and forget about it for as long as you keep using it. No batteries to replace or recharge, no receiver to keep changing position. Technology is supposed to make our lives simpler, right?
ERGONOMICS GET A B+
I was used to the much taller MS mouse so the G500 feels too flat. That may be a matter of preference and something one has to get used to. However, with my old MS mouse the angle my wrist was resting at felt much more natural and my wrist was much less strained after some hours of computer use. Apparently Logitech addressed this in its latest G700.
Another issue I am having with the G500 is the BACK side-button which I keep hitting whenever I move the mouse to the right.Read more ›
It is a good mouse, although not as comfortable as the MX500, but you can get the occasional lemon.
Update: I found a video on Youtube that showed a very simple way of correcting the double-click problem: Simply slam it on your desk. I would not recommend this for a flawlessly working mouse, but if you're on the verge of replacing it, you have little to lose. Since I tried this remedy, my mouse has been working very satisfactorily.
The software is very easy to use and allows all the buttons to be reassigned to any key stroke or several custom commands.
I have no use for the dpi increasing buttons so I reassigned them to = and -, and bound those keys to abilities in game.
My one complaint: the middle mouse button is absolutely useless. You have to push the wheel down exactly perfectly straight or else it thinks you tilted the wheel right. To get around this I reassigned mouse tilt right as the middle button. This isn't a huge problem but you lose one of the buttons advertised.
Right now, 8 months later, still having the same issue.
Left-click buttoon issue makes gaming impossible or very difficult for obvious reasons. Also, drag, moving icons, opening file, navigate in Windows is now very diffcult with the Logitech G500 Gaming Mouse.
Now, Amazon just confirmed me I have to contact Logitech myself and deal with them directly...
A mouse at this price should last for many years. I'm just a casual gamer, the mouse hasn't been used intensively at all. It looks brand new, no dust, no damage, I'm the only one using it. I always used the mouse with great care.
I do not recommend it at all. Don't buy this item.

For a mouse of this price range I expected it to last a lot longer. After a year the left mouse button started to miss clicks. Can't say I recommend this.Published 9 months ago by James Riordon
Best mouse I ever had. Bonus feature if you have kids : they can play for a while at popping the weight cartridgePublished 11 months ago by joris deguet
When my MX518 started breaking down and I decided it was time to replace it I started looking around and discovered the G500 was the spiritual successor. Read morePublished on Aug. 5 2014 by Josh
I don't understand why Logitech discontinued the G300. It was a FAR superior mouse, in terms of build quality. Read morePublished on Jan. 30 2014 by Willeyetheknifeguy
Awesome mouse, I use it a lot for Counter-Strike and the customization of the DPI settings and buttons make this a perfect gaming mouse. Shipping was fast as well took 2 days. Read morePublished on Jan. 27 2014 by Bizzerk
I play WoW. I've tried other gaming mice, but none have felt as comfortable as this one. Logitech software lets you customise what each button does depending on the game/program. Read morePublished on Nov. 26 2013 by Anne E Wilken
I own a couple of these, as I thought it was great at the start. About a year in, the mouse will suffer frequent disconnects though! Read morePublished on July 10 2013 by Jake
