Engineered for advanced precision and control. That was the slogan used on the retail box of Logitech's MX500 high performance optical mouse way back in the day (Funny how I still remember it so clearly so many years later, haha). The Logitech MX500...

The G500 has very similar features to its big brother, the G9x, despite the £20 difference in price. Where they differ is in ergonomics and flexibility. For gamers who utilise a palm-grip when gaming the G500 is perfect. For claw and finger-grip...

We tested nine mice to find out which one is the best for each type of gamer. Each mouse has been scored, but we come away with the opinion that each mouse was well-built, well-thought-out, and well-designed. The Razer Orochi, Razer Naga, and...

When it comes to the performance of the Logitech G500, it was quite impressive. The mouse was able to perform well on all levels of testing that I put it through including the precision testing, the customization testing, the comfort testing, and the...

This throwback laser mouse is sure to please fans of the classic MX518 At first glance, Logitech’s new G500 mouse looks like yesterday’s model. Its chassis is almost identical to the classic G5, which was in turn a slight redesign of the...

In our book, Logitech would have the ultimate gaming mouse if they added their Darkfield laser technology to the G500 and ditched the whole “distressed” look – this is a mouse, not pre-washed denim. They've nailed everything else:...

What we’ve got here is an absolutely excellent mouse. If you want a wireless mouse, I still recommend the Mamba, but the G500 can stand up to Razer’s flagship any day. It’s comfortable, feels like it’ll last for a long time, and...

International Review By Tweakers on 80

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Er was niks mis met de G5, dus ze hebben de goede dingen behouden en iets nieuws geprobeerd met het scrollwiel. Niet iedereen zal hiervan gecharmeerd zijn, maar ik vind het vrij draaiende scrollwiel heerlijk...

International Review By Hardware.Info on

De gaming-muizen in deze test presteren allemaal goed, maar zijn niet allemaal voor hetzelfde doel bruikbaar. Vooral door matige grip en een slechte lift-off distance is niet iedere muis geschikt voor low sense gebruik. Ook de vorm en de extra...
