Yeah it does look nice. Not sure about the finger placement on the right, though. And $85 seems rather expensive.

G500/G700 ftw

I love my G500 and I had MX518 before. It's just a better version of that mouse, IMHO.

As DDoc mentioned, the G700 is good if you want wireless.

Indeed, and the price great at about 25. It looks a bit dated now-a-days but has always been faultless and great to use.

Is that a dpi slider? If so is it nicely ergonomic, Looks finicky, Is it?

Weighted scroll wheel?

Looks nice.
My MX518 is still going strong though.

There is a button to make the wheel have a slight click or bump or make it smooth. There 3x DPI toggle like the others. It has a weight tray. It's like a cross of the G5 and MX518.

Yeah if I was looking for a change the G500 would be my choice.

Well, UPS showed up today with my Mionix NAOS 5000. So far, so great!

I had an issue at first, with it plugged up and Win7 not recognizing it, it would hard lock on bootup. But I fixed it.

This is by far, the best mouse company out today. Even the packaging is awesome. Feels like a book, not some cheap thin cardboard. Even the weights are in a tin box!
The way it's made, it "looks" like a huge mouse, but it fits like a glove when you palm it. It has 2 natural handholds. When you lift the mouse, ring and pinky fingers lift, not just pinky. I like 24 different LED colors. I customized it to Green for web profile, red to gaming.
I am NOT use to 5040dpi! The MX500 just went to 1200dpi (LOL!). I like that you can customize the dpi stepping. Currently running 1260/2520/5040 for web browsing profile. Gaming I haven 't fixed yet.
SQAT (Surface Quality Analyzing Tool) is out of this world. You slide it on your mousepad for 8 seconds and it analyzes your surface and makes adjustments automatically.

On a scale of 1-10. I give it a 10.

Questions if you are thinking about a mouse?
