I just came back from returning this. The amazon box was unopened. I'll stick to my G203 for 19.99$ which the RGB lighting heats up during winter ...
Is this thing on?

Call me crazy but I bought the G502 twice trying to like it as my older mouse is getting hard to find for a decent deal, however the shape, extra left finger buttons and metal/plastic wheel of the G502 never felt good to me.

I permanently broke my current favorite mouse the G300S recently after several double click fixes the little metal plate inside the microswitches finally fully broke after all the rebending and mangling around.
Thankfully I had basically this same MX518 Mouse as a backup, the G500S, this mouse and shape was my goto maybe 5-10 years ago where I must have used palm grip, but man does my pinky not like these mice anymore and I guess I'm a claw grip user?

Rant: I came to loving the G300S a few years ago when I was comparing several mice, it was the cheapest for one and very light which I started to prefer and seems to now be the trend with hollow shells now, had plenty of buttons at 9, sturdy and precise wheel without the annoying (to me) left right tilt, I wasn't sure about no thumb buttons however I liked the grip better without worrying about thumb buttons. But man the double click issue is so annoying it seems unthinkable this hasn't been solved yet as all my logitech gaming mice have died of this disease. Am I crazy or is there any switches that have fixed it? I know razor has some new optical switches however I think they are still prone? Seems like this is just something we have to live with??

I've been struggling pretty hard trying to find a replacement light "claw grip" mouse for the G300S, does anyone have any suggestions? Most of the better gaming mice in my price range seem to be very similar to the G502.

I have the logitech g402. It's comfortable, reliable, stylish, and has some nice software for macros.

I gave Logitech multiple chances at providing a mouse that was reliable and also didn't have the visual detailing come off and they failed. Not ready to give them another chance. Seems to be a highly rated product by consumers though.

I still have an original. I have no idea how old it is but it's disgusting (and still works flawlessly)

These deals tempt me lol

Honestly I don't think I'll be buying Logitech mice again after buying them for probably over a decade. The quality and quality control have dropped a ton.

Yeah thats pretty much the one I bought twice (once maybe 3 years ago and this last black friday) as it seemed to be the best deal in gaming mice at about $50 with the most features and good reviews, but yeah the personal feel of it doesn't do it for me, its hard to explain as I guess its pretty subjective.

My thoughts too, but I almost think its more their durability than their quality as brand new the quality is usually good, just overtime reliability is poor as I guess mice become a disposable replace every year or two item that can rake in cash, so why bother to fix kinda thing sadly :( I'm thinking of trying another brand but Razor is the only other high end gaming mouse company I can think of... I may go way off and try a cheap amazon gaming mouse with good reviews and treat it more as a disposable mouse not unlike Logitech but cheaper but I feel a lot of buy & returns if I go this route.

BTW Are there any other "Claw grip" mice users here?? :P

@RedruM7 My Wireless is not cutting it anymore for the precision work i do, and pixel hoping has gotten old. I was thinking this would be it, but if grip/feel is not good then perhaps i will try it out with caution.
I currently use the mx master.

My current mouse is a g700s (I always have it wired in). Left button is starting to fail...
I like it though... what would be a good replacement for it these days?
