Logitech G500 Review

» Discuss this article (17)


To properly test the Logitech G500, I will be testing it on four different aspects; speed, comfort, precision, and customization. To test the speed of the mouse, I will rate how fast the cursor is able to move across the screen. To test the comfort of the mouse, I will rate how comfortable it is to handle. The precision of the mouse will be rated by in-game sniping ability rated by the amount of head-shots. For the last rating, I will be rating how well you are able to customize the mouse to fit your needs.

Testing Setup:


Comparison Mice:


First up is the speed test, which will be rated on a scale from 1-10. I will be moving the mouse from the top left corner of the screen to the lower right corner. A 10 rating would represent lightning fast, while a 1 would be equal to a snail moving across your screen.





The comfort test is going to be rated by how comfortable and natural the feel of the mouse is to the hand, using a 1-10 point scale, where a 10 represents your hand is in heaven, while a 1 is equal to extreme discomfort.



In the precision test, I will be gaming using Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and using the Barrett .50cal. I will rate the accuracy on a 1-10 scale, where 1 would represent no head-shots and a 10 would mean all head-shots.



Lastly, we have customization. To grade each mouse on this test, I will see exactly how well you are able to change the buttons of the mouse, as well as how easily it is to adjust the DPI resolution levels on the fly while you are in a game. A 10 would mean you can easily change your DPI settings in the game and have full control over changing the buttons using the software. The Microsoft Intelimouse received a 0 score in this benchmark due to the fact that there is no ability to customize the mouse outside of the standard customizations Windows allows (double-click speed, pointer speed, wheel speed, etc.).



I gave the Logitech G500 a 10 in the speed test for the simple fact that when you set the DPI resolution to the highest setting (5700) you are not going to be able to even see the mouse move from the bottom corner to the top corner, it is unbelievably fast! The G500 scored a good 9 in the comfort test because it is not big and bulky, it does have some nice curvatures to it to help support your hand and fingers while you rest your hand on it as well as giving you a natural hand resting feeling to it. The comfort level of the mouse plays directly into the precession test where the Logitech was able to score an 8, because of how natural the resting position of my hand felt on the mouse and how easy it was to move, I was able to get some good headshots. Where the G500 excelled was in the customization of the mouse. You were able to change every single button on the mouse to what ever you may want it to be used for, you were also able to change the speeds of both the x and y axises separately if you wish to.
