5 out of 5 eggs4 3/4 years later.

Pros: Amazing durability, its been through a LOT. All but 1 feature still works consistently, which I'll address in cons, but besides that, its fared amazingly for what its been through. I would recommend it greatly if you are looking for a mouse that will be great for you and last.

Cons: The only feature that doesn't work consistently anymore is the scroll wheel lock, where you can change it from scroll or free spin, but if I tap on the top it will work fine. I've actually opened it up and discovered the issue is somehow the spring part for it just isn't what it used to be, so it needs some help sometimes. I used this a lot though, so that may have been the issue as well.

Other Thoughts: The chord will fray, thats a given, over time. but the chord has stood the test of time. If this one ever does die, I'll replace it with another G500 or something very very similar.

3 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

Pros: Precise, smooth, adjustable weights. Everything a gaming mouse needs. Infinite scroll is the best.

Cons: Right click started acting up after 2 years; makes contact but wont keep it. Still works, but can't game or 3d model with it anymore, and it's advertised as a gaming mouse.
Durability seems to be an issue.

1 out of 5 eggsSkip it - Do yourself a favor

Pros: Great gaming mouse while it lasts. Fits my somewhat large hands well. Has a free-wheel mouse with left/right click ability on it. Has DPI change on the mouse. Ability to easily change mouse weight with a quick pop out of the weight mechanism which was wonderful to get the mouse to exactly what you want.

No stupid massive amounts of LEDs except for the small DPI indicator. Looks pretty at first. Decent cord length.

Cons: Where to start... As many others have stated, at first this mouse was a gem. After a while the mouse started to double click on its own with the left (AND ONLY the left, the most important for a righty) mouse button. Once this happens you are usually out of warranty and logitech does NOT care about your issue and/or states that the issue is most likely due to a virus/your PC problem and not the mouse. This is BLATANTLY not true.

After failing to get any help from logitech, I decided to open up the mouse and see for myself what the issue is, as the warranty issue was no longer a factor and logitech was no longer planning to help me.

It seems the plastic they use on the interior of the mouse is rather low-grade where repetitive mouse clicks leave a VERY noticeable indentation on the plastic. As the left mouse button is the most used, this wears out the fastest, making your mouse presses barely hit the switcher on the inside, causing the dreaded double click (which I assure you, if you use this mouse for any length of time WILL occur).

I tried several ways to fix this, such as shaving down the inside of the "hammer" (the plunger under the mouse that activates the switch) in a fine point to try to get a direct connection so as to bypass the double click, adjusting the height of the "restriction peg" (a peg that goes into a hole under the mouse button that restricts the mouse from clicking when pressed too high up), and several other measures to attempt to fix logitech's fault to no avail.

Sometimes the fix would work temporarily, only to slowly creep up as the low-grade plastic degraded in the future. Sad for such an expensive mouse.

Additionally, the rubberized coating on the outsides of the mouse wore off for me rather quickly WITHOUT any damage to them. After general use sometimes I would see black stuff on my hands, examine my mouse, and note that the rubber had worn off.

Much of the pretty speckled finish has worn off where my palm met the mouse, as well as the major click areas for both L/R mouse buttons.

NOT worth the hefty price tag unless you plan on changing your mouse every year.

*Owner of this mouse for nearly 5 years, only one of which I would consider "good"*

Other Thoughts: I loved this mouse.... at first. Within a years use, the double click issue started, leading me to think I had a virus like many others. I realized it was this mouse via a cheap wireless mouse after Logitech refused to help and I began to regret my purchase. I made do with the issue until it became unbearable but when trying to deal with Logitech, it was a pointless battle.

After doing my own "adjustments" to the product now that Logitech had refused to assist me had the mouse almost work as intended several times only to fail the tests of time (and of poor materials).

Ive been using a cheap wireless mouse that came with an inexpensive mouse/keyboard combo thats been working better than this mouse (and, sadly, longer) because I know I wont have any issues with double clicking.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Mouse - Terrible Software

Pros: I've bought two of these - second when the first one broke (dropped one too many times)

Good feel
Great response

All around awesome

Cons: IMPORTANT:
The current software for it is TERRIBLE. "Logitech Gaming Software" is just awful.

Previous versions of the software (SetPoint 5.2) allowed for the default mouse buttons to be used (ie: MouseButton_1, MouseButton_2, MouseButton_3, etc..). It allowed you to set DPI settings for X and Y independently, adjust speed (not just polling rate), angle snapping, and acceleration.
The current version of the software(Logitech Gaming Software 8.x.x) does not allow ANY of this, and will remove any on-board mouse settings the moment it is connected to another computer with that software on it.
In short: it ruins the mouse.

Other Thoughts: If you can find it, or have the older install disc for SetPoint 5.2, use that instead - and I would recommend uninstalling the "Logitech Gaming Software 8.x.x".

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Support

Pros: Great mouse when i first got it, good fit, looks pretty, high dpi...

Cons: about 8 months after getting the mouse, left click started acting up, a lot of people have this problem, and logitech doesn't seem to care at all. RMA submitted and have been waiting WAY too long for a reply. I'm done with logitech and their gimmicky products.

2 out of 5 eggsMouse Button Flaws

Pros: The advertised features of this mouse are what drew me to it and have worked flawlessly for around 2 years.

Cons: Two and a half years later the critical left and right mouse buttons emit double clicks instead of single clicks. A simple search shows that this is an extremely common problem with this model. There are two causes:
1) poor quality mechanical parts in the button switch.
2) poor electrical design causing brand new mice to experience this problem in dry environments (static build up) which cannot be solved simply by receiving a replacement mouse.

Other Thoughts: I considered giving this one star because most mice I've had before this lasted at least 5 years. However I could not ignore the fact that its got good features and those features work well. If you're willing to buy a new mouse every two years then this might be the mouse for you.

4 out of 5 eggsStill better than decent after 4 years

Pros: The mouse itself has held up quite well. I actually use it with the heaviest weights and I really like the feel of it in my hand. It is easy to clean and very rarely do I have click issues.

Cons: The braided cord was a disappointment. This may be unique to my setup but the cord travels over the sharp edge of a keyboard tray and the braided cover has worn through in probably an 8" section. This hasn't changed the performance at all, but it looks lousy. I occasionally run into an issue with the left click which seems to be a known issue with this mouse. Usually a few firm clicks sort that out and I'm good for awhile again.

Other Thoughts: It's a heck of a mouse. I got it for $70 and it has been worth every dollar of that since. I wonder if they'd warranty it for the cord issue ;)

3 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasts

Pros: This mouse felt awesome and performed very well for the first couple of years I had it. I am a light gamer and this improved gaming, but it was also great for everyday use. I only used the programmable buttons for one game, but they were handy. The adjustable weight feature was pretty awesome.

Cons: This mouse has longevity problems. It was a great mouse when it functioned. I absolutely loved it for the first couple of years that I had it. Slowly, over time, it started to double-click when I only clicked once. I thought my computer had spyware, then I thought there was a driver issue, and it took me a while to figure out there was a hardware issue. I called Logitech troubleshooting a couple of times. They were nice and helpful, but after going through a long list of troubleshooting procedures, we concluded it was a hardware issue. Although the problem didn't happen overnight, they would not fix or replace the product as I was just out of the 3 year warranty. This is disappointing as it was an expensive mouse and I have had $20 mice hold up much longer.

Other Thoughts: I treated this mouse with care. It feels like it was designed to fail at the time the warranty expired. I think it is reasonable to get 5 years or more out of a mouse, particularly an expensive mouse. I wish Logitech would stand behind this product a little more.
