Overall and Final Verdict
The G500s is an interesting mouse to cover. Officially its actually very similar to the mouse that it replaces. I let a G500 user try out the G500s and they weren’t able to point out even one single feature that was different beyond the obvious artwork on the top. Having said that, when we dug into the mouse there were a few big changes internally that do justify the new model number. They swapped out the sensor to a similar performing sensor with a higher DPI and more importantly they changed out the trigger switches to 20 million click models to prevent any issues in the future like some people have seen with the G500. What makes this a tricky review though is more of a fundamental issue. They may not have changed much that anyone will notice, but the G500 itself was an amazing mouse. If you manage to keep the same feel while fixing known issues, I would consider that a big plus. You still have the great mouse shape, top notch software, and enough mouse buttons to almost consider this an MMO mouse. What it comes down to is if you already own a G500 I wouldn’t recommend picking a G500s up. But if you are on the market for a mouse, this could be the perfect mouse for you especially if you have already bought into the Logitech world with one of their keyboards.
