We bought the Logitech G5 optical mouse at the price of 60.00 Euro. The price is high enough to be characterized as a gaming mouse, so its audience is predefined. Amateur users should look at more affordable mices, like the G1 series.
The mouse is well designed and looks mcuh different from G1 series. At the top there is a metal finish while at the side a grainy rubber texture making it feel very smooth and special. There are several buttons at the top available, like:
- Tilt wheel. Push wheel to either side to scroll horizontally
- In game increase/decrease tracking sensitivity
- Programmable side button
- Programmable left and right mouse buttons
