Default Sensor position (G500)

Since my first computer, I have been using mice that have a sensor in the middle. I use my wrist/arm to move the mouse, mostly. The front is the part that moves the most.

Has anyone purchased the G500, who previously had middle sensors? Was it hard to use/adjust to?

Thanks.

I have a G500, it feels exactly like a mouse with a middle sensor.

well it has a "middle" sensor but its more towards your finger tips.. i used to own a g9 till i switched to the g500.The g9 is more centered towards your palm.It took me some time getting used to the g500 (about a week or two)
But personally i still prefer the g9 and i dont really know why...

I just ordered it.
Hope you are right!

On an unrelated note, avoid the Sidewinder X3 if you use your mouse wheel (everyone here... hopefully )

I didn't see your post when I posted before.

Although the G9 looks like it would fit my needs, I prefer larger mice.

Thanks to both of you.

Seeing as you prefer large mice, you'll love the G500. It has a good weight to it as well if you put in all the weights, which i like. :)
