There are three fatal, but easily fixed, flaws in this product, though, and I am going to detail what you can do to fix them. The first fatal flaw is relating to the build-up of static electricity on the plastic hammer that clicks the button on the mouse's internal PCB. They use two different kinds of plastics, and in a low-humidity environment it will build up static electricity that will later short out the button that actually registers the mouse click by static conductance from the plastic hammer to the switch.
The second fatal flaw is that the hammer, which is a plastic component that protrudes below the area your finger rests on, is made from very cheap plastic and over time the switch digs into this hammer, causing your mouse clicks to go unregistered. You can fix this the same way you fix the previous flaw.
The third flaw is that, over time, the rubber grip on the scroll wheel starts to stretch which ruins the function of the scroll wheel.
To fix all three flaws, you must open the mouse. The screws are under the G500 label and the teflon feet on the bottom of the mouse, and you can remove those with a razor blade and a small screwdriver. Take the mouse apart, and take the top cover off. There is a small ZIF-type ribbon cable connector that attaches to the side buttons and LED lights. Remove that connector. Get some clear epoxy or super glue, a small amount of tinfoil, and a small piece of plastic wrap. Epoxy a small square of tinfoil to the hammers, and then epoxy the plastic wrap to the tinfoil. Allow it to dry.
To fix the scroll wheel, remove it by pulling out a small plastic peg. Then the scroll wheel's plastic assembly will come off. Take the wheel itself out of the assembly by bending back the housing, and remove the rubber grip from the scroll wheel. Line the groove the grip sits in with the epoxy you used before. Place the rubber groove back on the scroll wheel.
When the epoxy dries, re-assemble the mouse. You've now made a good mouse into an amazing mouse.
After almost a decade (literally) of "product testing", all of use agree, the G500 is without question the best mouse for your money. You're probably looking through these reviews trying to figure out why you shouldn't buy that flashy D34tH Add3r 1337 XTREME edition with 27 pulsing LEDs and 1,000,000 DPI. Maybe that interests you because you like to draw attention to yourself. In that case, buy it. If you want quality, however, and not only the best but time-tested quality, stick with Logitech. From there, as I've said.... buy a G500. The weights, the ergonomics, the scroll wheel, profiles, the plethora of buttons.. you can't go wrong. You'll thank me, the other reviewers, yourself and Logitech. And if you don't like it? It's Amazon, the best company in the world. Return and then get that XXXTR33M3 RATTLESNIZZLE KILLER PR0. At least you'll look "cool".
• Fits great in my hand
• Dual scroll mode with a button
• Braided cord that does not tangle
• Easy to use side buttons ergonomically placed for your thumb
• Has a weight cartridge that can be customized
• After some time of use the left mouse button has double click issue (common Logitech issue) can be fixed by searching for a solution on Google.
• The middle side button does not work without the logitech software
Good gaming mouse and large enough for any hand size. The double click issue is annoying and can interfere with games (mainly with First-person shooters)
