Fantastic mouse, super durable
26 October 2014
Summary: This mouse has served as my primary mouse since probably around 2008, withstanding over half a decade of the strains of gaming. I recommended it to a few friends shortly before it started going out of stock, all of which are still in service.
Pros: Refuses to quit, relatively inexpensive, high performance, wired
Summary: I've owned my MX518 for 8 years. It is, hands down, the single greatest mouse ever made. Considering that the mouse sold for 40 dollars when it was still being manufactured, the value of that investment is staggering. Without a doubt the MX518 is the best investment I've ever made. The cost/value ratio is unparalleled. I have never been more satisfied with a purchase in my life, and that is not an exaggeration.
Summary: It has been my cricket bat, my M1911, and my semiauto shotty in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. With this MX, I have commanded the elements, torn my foes to pieces, and brought Dragons down from they sky. It has been my dagger in the night, my hidden blade, and with it I have brought countless evil men to their knees. "Requiescat en pace..." Imagine every AAA and kickass Indie game of the last few years; this MX 518 has been at my side through them all.
Excerpt: Bought this mouse...erm...years ago. So long ago I cant even remember when it was, but its still working as good today as when I bought it probably close to 5 years ago. That is testament to the incredible build quality on this mouse, that its still working years after it was made.
Summary: I've had this mouse for about a year now. It's great for gaming, no complaints at all. But I just noticed it emits a high pitched noise. I thought I was developing tinnitus in my right ear before I realized this! It's pretty faint mind you. I didn't notice for almost a full year. And by the reviews in here, it's likely you won't notice either. But it's frustrating to spend that much money on a mouse only to realize you can't use it a year later.
Summary: I've owned a lot of Logitech mice over the years, however, every new one I buy ends up breaking and I go back to my trusty old mx300. I've had the 310, some wireless logi set, wireless elite set, and 2 mx518s all break - either button failure or the cord shorts out. I just wish they would make an upgraded version of the mx300, which I've found to be the ultimate mouse in terms of durability.
Pros: Button assigned to go back a page and 2 buttons on side, not to cluttered, not to skimpy on buttons either.
