nice... i still used mx510 since 2003 (i have one brand new in my closet)... so the shape of mouse is pretty similar to mx512 and g5... for comfortable is 8 unlike 9 when i was younger because now i have big hands... angle of surface mouse give more stress (pressure) on end bottom of wrist...

i am still looking for right mouse at right price

I fully understand the reason that the marketing people thought up the idea and why it sells, but I really think that serious users be much better served if the marketers inserted these neat little weights up their neat little @$$es and knocked another fifteen dollars off the MSRP. ok done.
I was of the same opinion as regards the weights; "Yeah, Right... weights, meh".

But after a while I got used to the heft of a weightier than average mouse, at least to what i was used to up till then and now I'm sold

I like the weight of 4 x 4.5g and 4 x 1.7g weights and my G5 is the best mouse I've used.

Yeah I was the same way... I didn't use weights for a few months... then I gave it a shot and got used to it, and I like it so much better this way. Some things I just like a solid, heavy feel to it... (Not women, but hey...)

And HaDeS I know you hate the G5 already But not all mouse will be comfortable for every person, any razer mouse that I put my hand on I'm absolutely disgusted, but some people love them. The sidewinder looks decent too, but I have no complaints about the G5! But replaceable mouse feet would be good, I noticed the sidewinder has that option.

Nice review! I love the weights feature! But, I personally would like to have a higher dpi in a gaming mouse!

I had the MX700 which resembles G5 and G7 greatly. G5 is still a decent mouse, but I guess the march of technology is starting to make it a bit long in the tooth.
