OP  5/09/07 9:49:47 AM#1

Staff Writer Jeremy Star continues his ever-growing series of hardware reviews as he looks at the new G5 mouse from Logitech.

Wait, wait wait. I can already hear some of you screaming before I even start, so let me explain. Yes, I know that the G5 mouse has been out for a while. A long while. No, this isn't a review of that mouse. This is a review of the new Logitech G5 mouse. It looks different, has different specifications, and is basically a whole different mouse now. Why they didn't call it the G6, or the G5 Revision 2, or HEY-The-NEW-G5-WOW! Is beyond me. It's simply the G5.

Everybody get it? Are we all clear? Good. Moving on...

The Hardware - The new G5, not the same as the old G5

The G5 is a laser mouse with a USB connection. It features in-game DPI switching, an adjustable weight cartridge, dual thumb buttons, a 2000 DPI laser engine, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) gaming feet, and a full speed, 1000 reports per second USB interface. The mouse wheel is also set up to allow not only up/down scrolling, but also left/right as well.

Read the whole review here.

Cheers,
Jon Wood

No longer pertinent.
Nothing to see here.
These are not the droids you are looking for.
Move along.

Though a second side button would be nice, I prefer the fade to orange look of my G5, even if it has mostly been rubbed off anyway.

Nice review, though, now I have something to upgrade too when my current G5 dies.

i'm a "mouse freak" too, i can't tell you the number of mice i've tried and rejected due to various reasons. anyway.. i saw this new blue crackle version at a local electronics store, looked at it, thought "ooh two thumb buttons" and put it back down. my past experience with the G5 the cord was WAY too stiff and caused mouse creep which really irritates the crap out of me.

since it's just a matter of time until we see the G7 with 2 thumb buttons i'll wait for that. right now i'm happy with my G7 but to get to that point i removed the shell from my G5r1 since the original shell of the G7 was just WAY too slick and the shell of the revised G7 with the fake carbon fiber look just completely turned me off. i don't understand why they insist on using these graphic shells rather than what's been proven and works well, they need to take an example from razer on this.

Nice review (minus the incorrect image versions), although I'm still very happy with my MX1000. I probably won't be switching anytime soon, pending a failure.

I used  G7 for over a year.. probably the best wireess mouse outthere imo.. just toobad the Logithec doesnt have a supprot service to replace their crappy batteries.. i ended up with  boh of mine not recharging anymore  :(  Bought a G5 , i was very happy with it but the shell was horrible to me..  so i took the G7 one and using it on my G5 right now.. and you know what  ? i'm really happy with it.

By bad there.  I guess the logitech site is having a hard time keeping on top of having a new product with the same name too.  This newer blue version is absolutely no where to be found on the Canadian or US site.  Thanks for the link and I'll be updating the images today.

Yeah, I don't think it's in wide release here yet, I think they are trying to run through the stock of the old version first, so they haven't really put it up on their sites.

BTW, nice quote. I love Farscape.

I wish the reviews had used another gaming mouse as a comparision besides to MX518. The main competitors to the G5 are the Razer Copperhead, Microsoft Habu, and the Ideazon Reaper.

Considering the Reaper can be found for cheaper than the MX518 it would have been a better comparison to make.

Just to note I use a Habu myself and considering it's cheaper than the G5 it's a better buy.

I've been using the first G5 since my mx1000 gave up on recharging. It also had the very annoying 5cm occasional jump which didn't go away with drivers.

The only real gripe I have with the G5 is the size, I wish it was more like the mx1000 as it fits perfectly in my palm and has a nice rest for the thumb.

Anyways, nice review, it clearly shows that I'll hardly upgrade to the new revision.

I love my old G5, it works just so well.  I have used many mice, and its definetly the best.  Doubt I will upgrade to the new G5, its just unneeded since the old one is so good, its still working great after a couple years.

Hmm, this might be just the excuse i need to upgrade my rapidly Ageing Logitech MX510! I always preferred the G5 but the thought of going from the two thumb buttons i love to one button was always enough to convinced myself  that i didn't *really* need an upgrade.
I might have some problems coming up with the same excuse for this new version... it could be awesome.

And like the G5 before it, the RMB will break after a few months of use...

I *upgraded* to a razer copperhead from my G5. Im very happy with the move. Goes great with a Saitek Eclipse II.

Playing: EVE, WAR, Cybernations lol

While fixing the graphics for this article, I find the older G5 looks much cooler than the new one.  What's up with the generic cracked-earth texture?

I love my G5. This revision doesnt do much for me though. The new "design" is god awful, the extra button isnt of my extra use to me, and the extra speed can't really make THAT big of a difference between the two. The old G5's are a big upgrade to ordinary mice, doubling it has to be excess.

And again, the slippery complaint is a crock of bullshit. I've had zero grip problems with my G5, and find it to be of better grip than the crappy dell mouse I'm forced to use at work. I think our reviewer should be required to wash their hands before reviewing mice in the future because there's something else going on there.

Nice review. My "old" G5 is still doing great though. No real need to upgrade from it imo. Plus, it looks so much better than this new one.

I use an MX revolution.  I will NEVER buy another mouse again.

How come I haven't seen a review for this mouse?

The g5 looks cool, but not as cool as my revolution.

I will look in to having Logitech send me one for review. Thank you for the suggestion.

The information in this review is simply inaccurate.

There is no real technological difference between the previous G5 and this version. No the 1000 Hz polling rate is nothing new, install the drivers (setpoint) and press a button and you have the exact same friggin' thing for your oldschool G5 - no difference whatsoever. Indeed the only new thing about this updated version is a different look - oh and one extra button (not like you ever used the other one to begin with). And no - it doesn't offer more grip than the previous version, mainly because that version had no grip problems to begin with... I didn't think the buttons were sensitive at all either - try a Razer Diamondback: that is sensitive.

Considering the fact that the inherent technology hasn't changed at all - this remains an overpriced and underperforming mouse... and any gamer would do better with a Razer DeathAdder. It's not only less expensive, but performs infinitely better... because unlike the G5: it's not a laser mouse - and as such utilizes tried and true technology that's been utterly perfected... So where the G5 drops off after you accelerate it a bit (even when polled to 1000 Hz) and as such is not really a great mouse - the DeathAdder can handle anything any human can throw at it, easily.
