Summary: Got this mouse to replace my MX518 (only because it was damaged). Expected it to perform as good or better than the MX518. Boy was I wrong. The mouse is completely over sensitive regardless of whether you adjust the dpi settings or not. It just has a terrible feel and if you play First Person Shooters you will despise it for tracking enemies; it makes it nearly impossible because of how inaccurate it is.
Summary: First off, this review might be absolutely pointless to write due to the fact that this mouse is over 6 years old and nearly obsolete... So I'd be surprised if this review is even read by anyone. But what the heck, I'll write one anyway. Today I retire my good ol' Logitech MX 518 gaming mouse. It has served me well for about 6 years.
Excerpt: The mouse has other features such as DPI increase and decrease buttons while on the fly, it also has two buttons on the left side, which are bind-able so all you have to do is tap them to perform a function while in-game. The mx518 logitech gaming mouse is by far the best mouse I have used as of yet, though of I were going to get a new mouse right now, I would look towards the newer logitech mice, such as the g5.
Summary: Even after all these years...I am not sure about it. I am not sure about the ergonomics, I am not sure about the comfort level. I am not certain the buttons do add that much functionality. However, it does eliminate the need for a mouse pad. It's not special in any way.
Summary: This mouse has been a workhorse for me. I work from home and do a lot of graphic and web design. I am also an avid FPS and MMORPG gamer. It has performed flawlessly in all areas. It is incredibly precise, made more so with a great Razor mousepad, and makes editing images and precise graphic work a cinch. I also love it for FPS gaming, the ability to change sensitivity on the fly makes using vehicles in Battlefield 3 much easier!
Summary: I have always viewed Logitech as a premium brand, but after purchasing this product, I have changed my mind. Although it's difficult to see from the photo, the seamless design of this mouse is problematic. The left mouse button is poorly constructed and the electrical contact failed in less than one year. I called Logitech customer service, and they basically told me to go pound sand. Logitech isn't what it used to be.
Summary: I bought this in order to replace my Logitech G1, it works really great,and the price is reasonable. Easy to install, especially working in Win7. It gonna be better if you install the driver for this mouse.
