      Most users should be familiar with the logitech MX500 shape, and this is simply an incremental upgrade from that.
      So of course you're getting a quality mouse with a good sensor, that fits well in the (right) hand. New features I enjoy are the additional buttons (especially the easily reached third thumb button), combined with the onboard memory. With this, I can use the buttons for basic tasks like activating zoom mode, free scrolling etc. and take those functions with me wherever.
      The new HyperGear wheel is also nice, zooms through long documents as promised. Not always great though, so it's good to be able to toggle back to normal scrolling.
      For downsides, I can only really mention the "pre-sweaty" camo look they went for, and that it doesn't always succeed in swapping button profile to match the program you're running.

      The mouse is good, its accurate and comfortable to use.
      The setpoint software doesn't work on linux, and it is slow and bloated.
      I bought this mouse for the extra features in the software, and I am disappointed with that.
      If the software for it worked I would have given it 5 stars.

          This mouse is awesome! It has a matte type of finish on it so it does not stick to your hand when using it a lot. Personally I like the thumb buttons, for me, they are easy to use. I play MW3 and this mouse works awesome for me.

            I do wish is had more programmable buttons and better management software.

                This is an excellent mouse. We have 7 of these at work and I now have 2 of these at home. This is a great choice for people into gaming although I use it mostly for Design and Photoshop Applications. Best Mouse I have ever owned. If you use your computer a then you should buy a quality mouse.

                  This mouse feels very comfortable in my hand. I love the scrolling wheel and the buttons are nice. The best part of this mouse is obviously the software. With the software you can tailor your mouse to your exact specifications in regards to sensitivity, custom button mapping, and other settings. I have been a Logitech fan for years and continue to like their products due to their high quality. Even though I bought this new, my old wireless mouse from 2001 is still working, just a little worn out!
