Default Just recieved G5, quick review.

Ok i just recieved my G5 from Newegg and want to do a quick overview of it.

I just want to comment on Neweggs shipping first, I used standard 3 day, and I got the mouse 24 hours after i ordered, bravo.

Pros:
The mouse itself is very nice. The added second thumb button is definitely worth the extra money for web browsing. On the fly sensitivity is awesome, works great. Comes w/ a set of 1.7 and 4.5 gram weights calling for lots of combinations. It's a laser mouse, which is better than optical which the mx518 has. No batteries to deal with.

Cons:
Really rough texture, good for gaming, but not a great feel. Scroll wheel sits a little more raised up from the mouse than I'd like, but my previous mouse was almost flush w/ the wheel so it could be that.

Overall i give it 4 out of 5 stars. (no product deserves 5) It's worth buying. Haven't tested out on a game yet. (DELL) But i can imagine it will blow you away.
