Customer Reviews

The mouse is very accurate, as expected, and it works well on most surfaces.
Ken
The size of the mouse is perfect for my hand (not too small) and is a very comfortable fit.
Ron
The adjustable weights are a nice feature and so is the on the fly adjustable dpi.

This is a very nice and well built mouse. As soon as you use it, you can tell that it's very well made. The new surface used on this model is very nice, non slip and does not attract fingerprints, unlike the earlier 6 button version of the G5

The option of changing the weight of the mouse seems gimmicky at first, but as soon as you start to experiment with the weights, you'll see that it's actually quite usefull.

The mouse tracks very well and the on-the-fly DPI changing works flawlessly. Also it glides very nicely which is even more emphasized when using a good mouse pad.

The reason I gave this mouse 4 instead of 5 stars is simply that the shape of the mouse will not suite every gamer. It is an awesome device for anyone using a palm or finger grip on their mouse, but someone (like me) that prefers the claw grip, mainly used in FPS games will find it a bit uncomfortable. You can get used to it though.
Also, the scroll wheel is a bit annoying. It would be better if it was a little wider and didn't have this utterly useless side scrolling function, which makes it a bit awkward to depress it.

All in all this is a great gaming mouse that is worth the money it costs. Every angle of it screams quality.
Just try and take it for a "test drive" before you buy it so you can make sure it's comfortable to you.

The G5 is a very nice mouse, but if it dosen't fit one's hand, that dosen't matter. My hands don't work very well & I like another reviewer found the hump in the back just didn't work for me. I was amazed that none of the various mice specification say anything about their size, so here are the results of my quest to find out how big mice are:

Logitech V220 - 8.8 cm long
Logitech V320 - 9.8 cm
Logitech V450 - 10.5 cm
Logitech L6, L7, L8, MX400, & MX Revolution - 12.3 cm
Logitech LX7 - 12.0 cm x 5cm x 2.5cm (long x wide x high)
Logitech MX518-12.5 cm
Logitech MX620 - 12.8 cm
Logitech G5 - 12.5 cm
Logitech G9 - 10.5 cm
Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse - 11.2 cm x 5.1 cm x 4.2 cm
Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000 - 12.4 cm x 6.7 cm x 4.2 cm
Razer DeathAdder - 12.6 cm x 6.9 cm x 4.5 cm
Razer Orochi - 9.5 cm x 6.2 cm x 3.4 cm

5/26/2014 I've recently acquired a taste for Bluetooth mice & their longer range. Here are the sizes on four I've bought

Toshiba PA3847U-1ETB - 9.8 cm x 6.1 cm x 3.6 cm small, but works great!
Samsung AA-SM7PWBB/US - 10.1 cm x 6.5 cm x 3.4 cm also small & works great!
HP H3T51AA - 10.7 cm x 6.7 cm x 3.7 cm a little bigger & works great!
Razer Pro|Click Mobile - 9.8 cm x 5.9 cm x 3.8 cm small & limited range.

Shape matters a lot, but it's difficult to quantify...

Verified Purchase
This is my first time buying such an expensive mouse but I was so glad that I did. The FPS game I play on it, make fragging so much easier and weapon switching quicker.

But lately, the mouse began to freeze up in the middle of the game. The power would drop and come back after 5-10 seconds. It progressively got worst. I thought it was a driver issue but after installed the latest drivers, it still did the same freezing. It would even freeze when I wasnt playing the game. But then I took a look at the cord and it seems like there was a short in it. I could hear the PC make the sounds when you plug/unplugged a USB device whenever I would bend the wire. Now, it just wont even come on.

I love the mouse soo damn much I have to buy another. I hope this time around it will last longer.

Update ---------------------------------------

I got another one a short time later. And no problems so far. Still love it!

I'm pretty much a gamer n00b, and have been enjoying getting my butt severely kicked lately in Gears of War. So I'm complaining to a friend of mine about my woes, and he asks about my setup. "Whoa, dude," he says. "You can't us a wireless mouse and keyboard for gaming. Spend some money and get a really good mouse. Friggin n00b."

Turns out my friend isn't as dumb as he looks.

So I bought the G5 (after deliberating over the DeathAdder) because of the 2000dpi. Wow. Just...wow. Now, keep in mind that my point of comparison is a Logitech MX600 wireless. It's a great general purpose mouse, but the G5 feels like a miracle of modern technology by comparison. I've always found Logitech mice to be the most comfortable fit for my hand, and the G5 is no exception. I'm also completly shocked my how much comfort is added by being able to alter the weight. Honestly, I thought it was a worthless gimmick. But it works. As far as operation, just moving around in Vista felt incredibly smooth. The pointer tracks to perfection. No delays, skips, or jerks. Then, onto the game...the difference is unbelievable. I just can't describe how much of a difference this made. I hopped on GoW for a little multiplayer action, and I didn't get my butt handed to me nearly as bad as I usually do. I think I only got frag tagged about 100 times, compared to the usual 1,231,578 times. So I'm still awful, only less so.

I've still got a ways to go to get the feel for this mouse down, as I don't yet have the skills mastered to take full advantage of all the features. It's sort of like going from a Focus to a Ferrari.
