Great Mouse for the Price
18 December 2012
Excerpt: I have been using this mouse for a couple months now and it is very good for the price. It has a few extra buttons and you can change the dpi depending on your preference or need. Does not have all the features that others have but if you want a cheap dependable mouse this is the way to go.
Excerpt: The Logitech mx 518 gaming mouse is a fairly good gaming mouse. I noticed it at my friends house and was first attracted to its looks. You could tell its a fairly serious gaming mouse and it had a nice design that the picture above doesn't do justice. (Those grooves are actually 3 dimensional!) Than I placed my hand on it and was amazed at how nice it felt. It fit my hand like a glove and the important buttons were easily accessible.
Excerpt: Cool ergonomic design and it feel really great to use. I really like how the shape of this mouse contours the the shape of your hand. It has really quick response which is great for first person shooting games or any other game for that matter.. Used many different types of mice before, this one has by far been the best. It's pretty light also so it doesn't feel like a pain to use after a long time.
Excerpt: The MX518 Logitech mouse is a very customizable mouse and this is why I love mine. This mouse has a software that comes with the mouse that allows you to change settings for the mouse. You actually probably do not even need to change it as the settings on default seemed just fine to me. But for serious users that option is available. You do not even need to use the cd software but can just download the drivers for it on Logitech's website. The MX518 is black and grey.
MX 518 is almost the best optical mouse of all time

Excerpt: The thing that caught my eye first about this mouse was that the shell looked very similar to the mx700, which was the wireless version that came out a few years beforehand. I had been using the mx700 for several years at that point, and I decided that the feel of an optical mouse was something that I would prefer, even in light of the new advances in laser technology. Truth be told, I've bought two of these mx518's in the past.
Excerpt: The Logitech MX 518 is a solid high-performance mouse that I've been using for years. Durable and reliable, I've bought several more to use on other computers. It is a corded optical full size mouse, which makes it best for use with a stationary computer, rather than a laptop. It has several features specifically geared toward gaming use, but it is a comfortable and durable mouse that can be used for regular computer use.
Excerpt: Pros: Beautiful simplicity. When I bought this mouse new about 5-6 years ago it was pretty awesome. Even now, its still awesome. Perfect weight, excellent button placement, can change DPI sensitivity on the fly.The ergonomics are excellent, and it even looks good while being comfortable. When I say its the AK47 of mice though, that's not to mean its utilitarian. I've brought this mouse all the way around the world, and bashed it more than a few times.
Excerpt: I like this mouse from Logitech a lot. The most obvious part of this MX 518 is that looks like it's been shot up since it has ripples and bullet hole marks on the mouse. This hints that this is a mouse for the gamers, and it is. I have used this mouse for a lot of my World of Warcraft gaming and first heard about this from my guild leader. A lot of my guild members also use this mouse.
Summary: Overall an B+ grade gaming mouse. Works flawlessly without a hitch and is easy to use once you get the hang of the using the logitech software included. Only thing that i feel it could have is a higher DPI. While not important on small monitors, it is a big deal on very large setups. As well as a lack of weights. However, it is amazing for any gamer who wants a nice fitted mouse that is simple but smooth.
Pros: So far an excellent mouse with a great range of sensitivity. Very accurate when needing to make precise movements.
Cons: An ok software is included and the mouse only goes up to 1800 DPI.
Summary: I've used this mouse intensively for the past 3 years (lots of gaming, mostly mmorpgs). The mouse is shaped nicely and it's comfortable but I found myself having to squeeze my fingers hard on it most of the time so my hand doesn't slide off. The mouse is a bit big for my hand and the glossy finish doesn't help getting a good grip. Once I got used it though this mouse was pretty much a perfect gaming mouse.
Pros: -comfortable, -2 side buttons are nicely positioned, -precise
