If Logitech married the ergonomics of the G500 with the looks and features of the G9x it would have the ideal mouse. Provided you're willing to put up with its minor flaws and limitations, however, the G500 is still an excellent and affordable effort. quote

What we’ve got here is an absolutely excellent mouse. If you want a wireless mouse, I still recommend the Mamba, but the G500 can stand up to Razer’s flagship any day. It’s comfortable, feels like it’ll last for a long time, and it works like a charm. What more do you want?

There's quite a lot to like about Logitech's new Gaming Mouse G500, but with a competing mouse from Microsoft offering its own set of features, gamers now have some choices to make. The G500 will appeal to performance-driven shooter fans. The choice is less clear for other kinds of PC gamers.

So, my advice? If you're dedicated to Logitech, wait for the next G500, or the surely inevitable wireless variant. Logitech will probably fix the problems in the revision, just like they did before. Or, just stick with the actually good G5, which is $20 cheaper, at $50.

While we love the classic shape of the G500, we miss the G9-series’ ability to switch between profiles using just the mouse. If you absolutely detest the shape and interchangeable bodies of the G9 mice, this is an acceptable rodent. However, if you can adjust to the G9x, it’s a superior product.

The G500 is a great mouse: it's comfortable, customisable and feature-packed. But for most users, including gamers, you're better off saving your cash and getting something simpler and cheaper, like Logitech's M500.

Logitech would have the ultimate gaming mouse if they added their Darkfield laser technology to the G500 and ditched the whole “distressed” look – this is a mouse, not pre-washed denim. They’ve nailed everything else.

It's a very comfortable mouse, with all of the customization options that you'd expect from a Logitech G series. The extra thumb buttons are a very nice addition, and I'm extremely happy to see that the free spin/click mode switching button for the mouse wheel has been moved from...

I've been using this for awhile and I had a Logitech G9X and I prefer the G500. It is unbelievably comfortable, fantastically grippy, which is perfect for those long gaming sessions, easiest to adjust dpi on the fly, adjustable scroll wheel is a favorite of mine, and just the best mouse I have...

I bought this for designing. With the accuracy and weight configurations, it's a very nice mouse. The only issue I have is that the software is only Windows compatible, thankfully I was able to use it via Bootcamp.
