This giveaway has ended, congratulations to Jim L. from IN who won the Logitech G500 mouse.  We always have more giveaways and sweepstakes so stay tuned and look out for other great prizes.

We decided to giveaway another Logitech mouse, this time the Logitech G500 Gaming Mouse was the chosen prize to giveaway but this mouse isn’t just for gamers.  You get a truly precise 5700DPI mouse that has custom weight options so the mouse has the exact feel that is right for your hand.

This giveaway is also sponsored by Hauppauge Gaming Zone, Days of a Domestic Dad, and Blog Setup Guide.  The Logitech G500 Gaming mouse is one of the best mice you can find for under $60 and has a really high quality look and feel to it.

g500 weights

It comes with many weights that you can load into a cartridge and slide into the bottom of the mouse.

This allows you to make the mouse weigh more or less so that it is more comfortable to your hand, I had always preferred a heavier mouse myself until recently.  The G500 actually can get quite heavy if you load all the 4.5g weights in it.

The Logitech G500 is also a fairly small mouse for a gaming mouse and does well for small and medium hands in my opinion.  Unlike some larger mice that don’t accommodate smaller fingers your whole hand effortlessly surrounds the mouse.  The thumb buttons are not obtrusive and easy to press when you need to.

There are 10 programmable buttons total, including the scroll wheel which clicks and also rocks side to side which takes some getting used to but can add those extra buttons if needed.

Custom user profiles, custom weight, high DPI and precision movements make the Logitech G500 an all around excellent mouse for those who do gaming, drawing, or simply need a nice high quality mouse.  It isn’t wireless which is why it generally has better performance than wireless mice but it won’t ever run out of batteries either!

Enter to win a Logitech G500 Gaming Mouse

This is a Punchtab giveaway that starts on Jan 14th 2013 and ends on Feb 8th 2013, winner will be chosen and has 48 hours to claim prize or a new winner will be chosen.  This is a physical prize that I need to ship to the winner, so this contest is only open to contestants in U.S. and Canada and/or those who are willing to pay the shipping charge if International (or you can re-gift to a friend in U.S. or giveaway on your own site…etc).  I would say if you pay the shipping I would send it to you, but the shipping is likely more than the cost of the mouse.

As with any Punchtab giveaway the more entries you get the better your odds of winning, share the custom ptab.it link you see at the end of the entry options and you will get 1 extra entry for anyone who clicks on your link and 5 extra entries if they sign up.  So to really maximize your entries share the contest like crazy in social media and forums with your custom ptab.it link.

Any questions, let me know and good luck to all who enter.

    I like to play most genres aside from sports games. My most favorite feature may have to be the weights!

    • I can attest the weight variation is pretty cool, from light as a feather to the heaviest mouse I have ever felt, you can find the perfect weight for your hand.

  • michael joshua pabia

    Currently playing Max Payne 3! =D

    • How do you like Max Payne 3, I loved the first and 2nd but have read mixed reviews about the 3rd.

      • michael joshua pabia

        Ohh I see.. I haven’t started installing it yet. Very busy at work X__X but it is here.. can’t wait to play it =D

  • i never saw that weight thing on a mouse.pretty cool. I like to play sports video games.

    • I had always liked a heavier mouse myself, but I wound up getting used to a lighter mouse during my review of a different gaming mouse (the Anker Precision Mouse) which can’t adjust as heavy as the Logitech G500.

  • Battlefield 3

  • rheerani

    I want that mouse, now that my current gaming mouse has broken down :-/

    • How long did you have it before it stopped working?

      • rheerani

        For about an year.

  • Shyama Pai

    i want the mouse for my hubby,he loves these stuff!!

  • Old school old school that’s all my pc can handle XD Sure I HAVE newer games via steam gifts, but this p.o.s can’t play them well

    • Time to start saving up some scratch for a new budget gaming laptop. If I win a contest, I will be giving another one away soon.

  • i want it bcoz i am poor

  • Ronald Smith

    I like to play lots of games, from small Indie games such as Closure and Limbo to hardcore games like Bulletstorm, UT3 and Dead Island. What appeals most to me about this mouse is the multiple buttons and their layout. The left-sided ones specifically are placed in a much easier to access area than most comparable mice have theirs.

    • I would have kept this mouse for myself if it wasn’t for Anker sending me the Precision Gaming Mouse which I liked just a tad better for it’s grip, so my readers end up with a win/win here.

  • Old school RTS’s and Awesomenauts!

  • LarryDarren

    I would like this to play WoW or any of my Moba games. All the extra buttons are enticing!
    Nice giveaway thank you.

  • Adella Gonzalez

    I’m anal about the mouse that I use. I literally have a drawer full of mice. None of them were as precise as I’d like.
    The precision of this mouse sounds amazing…I want it!

  • this would be a nice replacement for my G5! 🙂

    I play a variety of games, Planetside 2, Anno 2070, tf2, minecraft, Kerbal space program, skyrim, and a lot more games then I would like to admit.. heh..

    Also I love the high DPI the mouse has, it would come in very useful in FPS games like planetside 2, as well as quickly adjusting the dpi to a very low setting when trying to aim and hold it steady. And I love the weights, honestly the mouse I have is decent.. but it feels very light, I like it when something has weight to it.
