Logitech has presented the next addition to its line of gaming mice, the Logitech Gaming Mouse G500. This new mouse is an improvement to the beloved Logitech G5 Laser Mouse. It brings a new gaming-grade laser engine that will allow gamers to play at the top of their game. The new engine can register hand speeds up to 165 inches per second (ips) and acceleration up to 30gs. The new mouse also gives users the ability to change the precision by adjusting the dpi on-the-fly, "from pixel-precise targeting (200 dpi) to lightning-fast maneuvers (up to 5700 dpi)." Using the Logitech Gaming Software allows the dpi to be adjusted in increments of 100 dpi. The new battle worn finish is designed to give the mouse a look that is more appealing to gamers. The larger thumb rest and reshaped pinkie ledge are supposed to provide greater comfort during use. The mouse includes onboard memory to store game settings and 10 buttons to use for easy access to macros. Like the G5, the G500 offers up to 27g of weights to adjust the feel and movement of the mouse to suit the user's likings. The G500 is expected to hit retail markets in September for $69.99.

Kind of opinionated. The people who want light and quick mice = razer, for people like me who want sturdy mice with better control = logitech. both have their advantages.
