When it comes to the performance of the Logitech G500, it was quite impressive. The mouse was able to perform well on all levels of testing that I put it through including the precision testing, the customization testing, the comfort testing, and the speed testing. When it came down to the amount of customization that Logitech has given us to have over the mouse, I was impressed. With most mice you are able to change the pointer speeds, a majority of the buttons, and the scrolling rates, however Logitech has given us the ability to create macros and store them on the mouse's onboard memory and be assigned to any button on the mouse you may wish. I really like the scroll wheel button placed at the top of the mouse which allows you to change the mode of the scroll wheel between a free spin or the ratcheted settings. With the price of the mouse coming in just under $60 at Newegg, you would easily be able to pick this mouse up if you were in the market and the $60 will be well spent with the amount of customization that you are going to be able to achieve with the G500. The Weight adjustments that are packaged with the mouse are always a great way of making sure that your mouse is going to be liked by many gamers. The actual weight of the mouse with out the weight cartridge installed is a little bit heavier than I am used to and would like to be using on a daily basis as it could get tiring on your wrist after a few hours of gaming. The on the fly DPI adjustments are also a great way to be able to customize your mouse while you are playing a game or working and don't feel like opening up the software to change the DPI setting. If you are in the market for a new mouse for either gaming or just regular every day usage, you may want to check out the Logitech G500 mouse, it is going to be able to provide you with some great customization tools, a great feel and look to the mouse and it will not break the bank. I would suggest this mouse to any of my friends that are looking for one and I will be using the G500 for everyday usage at my main computer.
