    These designs are unbelievable. I really enjoy the ergonomic approach to these. This helps a lot if you use a mouse as much as I do. All day at work and then still blogging in the evenings and weekends. Those little carpal bones do sometimes take a hammering.

    I don’t really like the designs of the Logitech.. I ended up buying Razer DeathAdder myself :)

    The designs are very good. but my mind never agrees with me to purchase a costly mouse.

    Heh. The mousewheel on my MX500 finally broke today and I wasn’t able to fix it. Replaced the feet with teflon tape a couple of times through the years; had to clean out crud gunking up the buttons and keeping them from operating smoothly once or twice.

    Best mouse I’ve ever had; so I decided to check how old this thing was. I remember the MX500 being a newish model when I bought it, so about 2003; eight, fucking, years. That’s good build quality.

    I’m just going to grab the g400; the direct successor in form and function to the MX5xx series.

    As far as keyboards goes I’m still using an IBM model M from the early 1990′s. I’ve spilt coffee on that thing, dropped it on the floor and it still keeps trucking.

    Yup, my MX-500 is in the process of dying.. it stops working for a couple of seconds then comes back. Probably a bad wire connection somewhere. On the upside, I’ve also had it pretty much since it launched. It (and my Genius keyboard) are the oldest components in my rig. That’s 8+ years! I love the little bugger. It makes me sad to have to replace it.. will probably be the G400 or G500 if the ergonomics of the 500 agree with my hand.

    Mine died today (19.08.2012) and I’ve been using it since it appeared on the market (~10 years).
    All hail to MX-500!
