5 out of 5 eggs4 years strong. Upgrading to G502.

Pros: ++ Lasted a full 4 years before having an issue
++ Easy to keep clean
++ The dual mode scroll wheel
++ Comes with weights
++ Glides great on my wood table
++ Comfortable

Cons: -- Like other users have stated, the left mouse button started malfunctioning, but this is the first and only malfunction in 4 YEARS. Typical as it is the most often used button.

-- Doesn't have a thumb button right where your thumb naturally sits in the thumb groove

-- Not made for lefties if you're a lefty

Other Thoughts: I tried to clean the switch, but there is nothing really to clean! It's pretty clean inside the mouse due to the integrated mouse button-cover Logitech uses. Best bet is to just replace the switch.

The Logitech G502 will be coming in the mail, from Newegg of course, so we'll see how that one stands to the tried-and-true G500.

Great mouse that lasted many battles in Starcraft 2. Diablo 3 probably killed it!

4 out of 5 eggsOK mouse...

Pros: Large mouse for my bigger hands, but quite comfortable for both small and large hands alike.

Free floating wheel to rapidly scroll through paragraphs of sentences during work sessions.

Cons: Cable wrapping is cheap and broke loose after only a month after usage.

Starts to disconnect more and more often because of bad cable wrapping.

Center button on the side of the mouse did absolutely nothing for me; side buttons in general are just too small for me and I tend to hit more than one side button often.

Other Thoughts: Compared to my other mouses, this one in particular is the one that performs the best for me. Unfortunately, there were plenty of problems with the mouse that I could not overlook. But for what you pay for it, this mouse is still a good contender to last you for a good while.

1 out of 5 eggs2 blind mice

Pros: It's good until it starts being erratic and causing issues with gaming.

Cons: I've now gone through two of these since 2011. Bought the first one and the left mouse button started malfunctioning. Logitech was pretty good with replace it which made me happy.
Now, on my second one, I'm having tracking issues. I'm not certain if it's a laser issues or what. I went through numerous troubleshooting processes with no luck. While being told that there's nothing that can be done to remedy the issue Logitech did attempt to pitch a sale to me to buy a different mouse.

Other Thoughts: It seems that the life of these are around two years. I suppose that could be good or bad. I'm pretty meticulous with my components. I run with a Logitech keyboard, headset, and mouse. 2 of which are having issues. I'm most likely going to move away from the Logitech line unfortunately.

1 out of 5 eggsMouse review

Pros: Larger design. Buttons located in good spots. Super fast scroll wheel. DPI settings.

Really great mouse except for the following cons and other thoughts.

Cons: Nearly impossible to click anything. At times it works great and next minute a single click mean 10 clicks to this thing! Seems to be a theme when looking at other reviews. See other thoughts for info.

Other Thoughts: Purchased on 5/27/2011. For considerably less than what it is listed for now. I do not know why it has increased in price by 50 percent.

It appears to only last 3 to 5 years. I got 4 years out of it which equates to about $15 a year for a mouse. Seems a bit steep.

Product states:
"Durability
Buttons (Left / Right): 8 million clicks
Feet: 250 kilometers"

and

"3-year limited hardware warranty"

Even at 1,000 clicks a day (which I do not have) I would be at 1.4 million clicks so far and it is failing. Not even half of what it claims. Warranty just short enough to screw me over.

With the dramatic increase in price and obvious inability for the mouse to live up to its stated standards I cannot recommend it nor will I purchase a mouse from Logitech again.

5 out of 5 eggsSo good it makes me sad

Pros: This mouse rocks! I use it for development and gaming. I've never had a better mouse. It feels good for everything I do.

Before this mouse, I swore by the (now defunct) dual optical. RIP

Cons: 6 months outside of warranty and the right mouse button starts getting flaky. If only Logitech made mice like IBM made keyboards.

Other Thoughts: So now that this one is going out I might look for something with metal switches like my KUL ES-87. (Does that even exist?)

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointing in customer service and mouse quality

Pros: Cursor seems accurate, adjustable mouse wheel, +/- system to change speed, good side buttons, looks awesome

Cons: Durability, Logitech customer service, weights seem pointless but might be useful if you like a heavy mouse

Other Thoughts: I've had 3 different Logitech mouses over the past 5-6 years. The mouses seem to have "clicky" button issues after 2-3 years of use. I am a daily computer user. These mouses are not built for longer than 3 years. Logitech customer support used to replace these no problem, but the last encounter they did not care to replace it because it was about 6 months out of warranty, even though this mouse had issues for several months before the warranty. The Logitech warranty/return process is confusing on their website, and time consuming. They do not have an email address to find, thus my warranty replacement was delayed due to my apathy because I was using another mouse until I lost that one.

My last 2 Logitech mouses, the right mouse button would be hard to press. With this model, the left mouse button does a "double click" about 1/3 of the time I use it for a "single click." This has resulted in many frustrations, accidentally closed windows, and many other difficulties.

Logitech used to be my go-to for mouses. Now, I have bought a replacement Corsair M65, which is $40 less expensive. My experience with Corsair for power supplies and computer cases has been wonderful.

The only decent peripheral that Logitech makes is their mouses, but even those are not quality after a couple years! Their keyboards are low quality, dome-switch. Their 1 mechanical keyboard is overpriced and ugly, and I'm sure lower quality compared to other manufacturers of mechanical keyboards.

-note: The plural of computer mouse can be either mouses or mice. I chose the former.

4 out of 5 eggsWorked great...for 5 years

Pros: This mouse is probably the best mouse that I've owned, and it has been consistently great in the 5 years that I've had it. The only downside is listed below. Great weight, features, and accuracy. Everything you could ask for of a working mouse.

Cons: Like I said, for 5 years, the mouse has been nothing short of great, but within the last month or so, it apparently started shorting out my USBs. Considering that most of what I am using is USB-based, this means I have to force-shutdown my computer every time the USBs short-out.

Other Thoughts: Prior to when the mouse started shorting out my USBs, I would have bought this mouse another 10 times. Trying to track down what the issue was with my computer, however, was not a ton of fun. I was about to try replacing my motherboard, thinking the issues were stemming from there.

1 out of 5 eggsLogitech's only mistake

Pros: Comfort, ergonomics, button lay out, configuration, weight system, smooth/click scroll wheel and pretty much every other feature this product has makes it stellar. Hands down, one of the most thoroughly engineered and designed via real use-case devices on the planet, at the time it was released to the market

Cons: It doesn't work! At least not 100% of the time... I have gone through 2 of these mice over the past 4 years and each time the same issue happens. Eventually the mouse clicks and laser tracking stop being properly recognized by Windows for periods of time. The pointer moves, but icon's and applications do not recognize that the pointer is above them and are not clickable. Clicking causes all kinds of strange behavior from no response to completely unexpected responses like closing tabs and applications or selecting no when I click yes (very frustrating saving files). I have tried removing and reinstalling the mouse and all related drivers, falling back to older drivers, using MS default drivers, nothing has solved the problem. My first mouse was replaced by Logitech, at no charge, shortly after a year of use when the issue started happening. The second mouse started having issues after roughly a year and a half and Logitech is giving me the run-around about a replacement since it has already been replaced once.

I strongly recommend against buying this mouse, if you search the internet you will find I am not the only person experiencing this issue. This mouse is, to my knowledge, the only blemish on Logitech's other-wise perfect track record of providing input devices

Other Thoughts: I am still a full Logitech supporter and future customer of theirs. Pretty much every keyboard and mouse I own is made by Logitech and none of them have had any issues. Even the temporary replacement I am using for my G500 is a 15-20 year old Logitech optical mouse with a simple scroll wheel, still works perfect :)

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Mouse

Pros: It's a very customizable mouse. The free spinning scroll wheel option is fun. It tracks like a dream. The texture of the mouse is easy to hold on to even with pizza hands.

Cons: Weight. It's already a bit heavy and then you get a cartridge to add more weight...interesting. It feels like I'm fighting it across the mat every time I play.
The braided cord came tightly folded and never straightened out and kept catching things behind the computer desk.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from the MX518 and never truly got used to it. It's a great mouse, but doesn't fit my smaller hands as well.
Thought about buying a back up to use at work, but the price is crazy high for the age of the mouse.

2 out of 5 eggsInferior...Must AVOID

Pros: It's about the same shape and size as many other Logitech mice.

Cons: This mouse is horrible. At first I thought it was just that the sensor is up by my fingertips with this mouse instead of near the center of my palm like with the G5.
After fiddling with everything for months, it is obvious that this mouse's sensor is seriously messed up.

Other Thoughts: I thought I was crazy for a long time. I decided to pull out my old G5 which still works, but it malfunctions at high speeds.
Being careful not to zip the mouse across the desk, I was amazed to find I am not crazy. The precision and control of my G5 reassured me that the G500 is total crud.

I've been in love with Logitech since before they started making optical mice. If the G502 or maybe even the G402 don't live up to the hype, I may have to abandon Logitech for good this time.
