Very nice mouse 05/30/2014
This review is from: Logitech M500 Gray Tilt Wheel USB Corded Laser 1000 dpi Mouse
Hefty; additional mass over standard mice makes this mouse more stable and precise.
Laser-tracking is dead-on and very accurate on a variety of surfaces.
All buttons have an appropriate sensitivity; not too stiff, yet not too soft, either.
Contoured housing is comfortable during extended use, even for smaller hands.
Very affordable "gaming" mouse (see "Other thoughts" below.)
Nice, long USB cord.
Option to make scroll-wheel free-rolling is great for viewing extended docs or web pages, takes only a button-click.
Logitech's utility software doesn't always allow mouse-button clicks to work properly as keystrokes in all applications. Tried mapping the mouse forward/back buttons to two different keystrokes in a game, but using them would cause the game to minimize, which is pretty useless.
Mouse may be too heavy for some users, non-adjustable weight provides no options.
USB cord feels a little on the thin/flimsy side, no braided sheathing.
For a "non-gaming" mouse (from the "M" series, not Logitech's "G" gaming series,) this is actually well suited for gaming, but without the huge price tag.
The wife uses it for photo-editing, as well as gaming, and she likes it much better than her old Microsoft and Logitech mice.
