Summary: It may not have as many buttons as some gaming mice, but I find that to be an advantage because it lets me maintain a high level of accuracy and control while still adding a couple buttons to the mix for specific game actions.
Summary: Whenever purchasing an item on Amazon, the first thing I do is look at the negative (1, 2 star) reviews. When looking at negative reviews for this item, I see that nearly all of them complain about item failure after period of time. A few mention issues with the buttons being unresponsive and they immediately give throwbacks to the MX518. The other complaints are in regards to the logitech software.
Summary: I do game a very little on my computer, but I bought this mouse because I need a very comfortable and accurate mouse for tons of digital photo processing I do in Lightroom and PS and video editing in Sony. Fit: I am a woman with a thin, small hand so I find the fit perfect and very comfortable. However my father who has the biggest hands I know also said he found it comfortable, but he need the sensitivity turned down a bit because his larger hands made larger movements.
Summary: This is the new MX518, which is considered to be one of the best gaming mouses ever made. This has the same iconic ergonomic right hand shape and 5 button (8 if you include the dpi switching buttons) layout. The greatest thing about this mouse is that you cannot make it jitter. Even at the lowest dpi with low sensitivity at fps games, there is no way you are getting negative acceleration with this mouse.
Summary: High quality, comfortable, high precision. This mouse has everything that you really need for gaming. Doesn't have as much hotkey functionality as some of the others, but that makes the design much more clean and slim.
Summary: i used the MX-518 for many years, it still works gave it to my son, i was sad to see it was discontinued, then i saw the G400 was its direct updated replacement, absolutely no change in the ergonomics, just updated hardware. i love it. Forget about those $130 dollar mice, if you are bad at games, an expensive mouse will not help you lol. I reccomend this mouse to anyone and everyone, i am thoroughly pleased.
Summary: This mouse is fantastic. I wanted a corded mouse that I was familiar with for my office. I had an older MX510 at my house since I am a casual gamer. I picked this up even though it's overkill. It has performed flawlessly since I pulled it out of the box about a month ago. When I first got this mouse it has an odd texture on the top that I cringed at a little bit. Over a couple of weeks I feel like it wore down a little and I got a little more used to it.
Summary: Bought this mouse recently to replace a gifted Logitech G9x. I never found the G9x to be particularly comfortable and the laser would freak out randomly. The G400 uses an optical sensor as opposed to a laser sensor that the G9x and most newer mice use. I don't know if it really makes any difference but I find the G400 to be much more steady and easy to use.
Summary: I replaced my trusty old MX518 with the new G400. The G400 took zero getting used to because it's the same identical body as the MX518. All the buttons are in the same places, and the outer shell is exactly the same as the MX518, except for the "gun metal" texture of the 518. The G400 has a nice dark gray texture.
Summary: This mouse is amazing! I play Starcraft 2 semi-professionally and picked this mouse up after my old MX518 died after 3 years of use. The tracking on this mouse is phenomenal; I've never had any lag or glitches with this mouse in my 6 months of use so far. If you are looking for a functional mouse that's good for gaming and doesn't have all of the fancy backlighting and macro buttons, trust me, this is the one for you hands down!
