Hello, just wanted to post a small review of my own of those two mice. First i bought G400 this is to replace my broken MX518, so G400 superb mouse same shape as MX518 and works perfect. EXEPT it has ANGLE SNAPING, yes and my MX518 also had it, this thing just gets me frustrated every time. So then decided to get G500 whit has the option to disable angle snapping, so what did i like about G500 hm, il be honest, nothing… its heavier than G400, the different material used on G500 sides to grip mouse i don’t like, scroll well is crap, and the laser position no good. so i will return to store G400 and G500 and maybe get Razer mouse or a different. I don’t understand Logitech why are you reinventing MX518 classic to like G500? ok i understand the weights system that you can add more weights, but whit out G500 is mulch heavier than G400 I think its because of that scrool well… also a problem whit G500 right button is harder to press if your coming from MX518. why are you trying to reinvent when there is a excellent mouse MX518 of course just remove angle snapping and that’s it, then it will be the best mouse ever.

The PID code contains information about when the product was manufactured. As the product manager, it is sometimes interesting to me to see how long it takes for a product to get from the factory to end users.

Also, what I miss about the MX518 (and haven't found in any subsequent mouse, but haven't tried the G400 as yet) is the angular shape of the back of the mouse seems to force my hand to basically "lay" on the mouse, completely supporting my hand and taking away a lot of the fatigue I feel with other mice. Right now, I'm using the G500 and after only 20 - 30 mins, I can really feel the pressure and fatigue in my hand. The G500 forces me to use a "claw" grip whereas the MX518 actually allowed my hand to relax and rest on the body of the mouse. I never felt any fatigue or pressure in my hands and forearms with the MX518. I'm going to go get a G400 soon and hopefully it will work. The only sad thing is...it seems to be a VERY popular mouse, as I can't seem to find one ANYWHERE, even at the BIG computer stores like Fry's. I'm really sad that my MX518 just finally gave out; the mouse buttons still work, but the pointer will not move on the screen. I guess 2 - 3 yrs of constant wear finally killed it.
