Works Great But Not Built To Last

Anonymous, Newegg
14 October 2015
  • Pros: Works great. Great ergonomic shape. Good button positioning. Thumb buttons and sensitivity buttons work with or without the software (need the software to reassign them though).
  • Cons: Have to open it up and clean it out once a year. After about two, years the pads started falling off. After about three years, it started behaving strangely for a few months then died.

  • Summary: I used this mouse to death. During my MMO phase. SMashed it to death after a frustrating raid. Probably not logitech's fault. Lasted 1 year.

Very Good Mouse, But

A. Stewart, Amazon
9 March 2014
  • Summary: As I'm typing this review, this mouse is listed at $99. I bought it for around $35, and my rating is based on that price. $99 is absurd, and this mouse is certainly not worth that much.

Three years strong.

romevi, Amazon

  • Summary: This was my first desktop mouse. That may sound a bit strange, but I had been using laptops for most of my life with small mouses as my peripherals. So, when I finally had a desk setup, I purchased a mouse I could use for everyday use and the occasional Steam and StarCraft plays.

Logitech Mosue

  • Pros: Works well on most surfaces. Has minimal seams that collect gunk.
  • Cons: The Left mouse button seems to contact the middle mouse wheel and makes a hard click.

Great Mouse

Anonymous, Newegg
16 April 2012
  • Summary: Did some research and found that the mouse came with a 3-year warranty. Contacted Logitech support and told them about all the troubleshooting I had already performed to narrow it down to a bad mouse. They immediately accepted the claim and issued a warranty replacement.
  • Pros: Overall a great mouse. I bought this mouse a little over two years ago as an upgrade to my MX510 (which I loved and never once died on me) and have used it on a a daily basis for an avg of 4 hrs/day. I found it to function very well for my needs in FPS games (namely the CoD series and BattleField...
  • Cons: It Died! This mouse was bought to replace and older MX510 which I used for about 4 years, before I decided to upgrade. The MX510 was a great mouse which still works today. This mouse was a good upgrade and worked fine until recently. Over the last couple months, the mouse kept losing connection t...

After 2 years, time to move on

CHRISTOPHER C., Newegg
25 July 2011
  • Summary: Researching a replacement mouse that has pinky support. This mouse is legendary, going to be hard to find a new mouse...
  • Pros: Extermely Reliable - Does exactly what you tell it to do every single time, and yes, apparently not all mice can do that consitantly!
  • Cons: After 2 years and over 400 hours of Bad Company 2 between me and my Nephew we are finally ditching this MX 518 mouse. The issue is there is NOWHERE FOR YOUR PINKY TO REST and it's usually 50/50 on the side of the mouse and on your mousepad surface (or surface that you are gliding the mouse on), s...

Good Mouse

Brad B., Newegg
17 June 2011
  • Summary: Price was $35 when I bought it and two weeks later the shell shocker has it for 29.99 with free shipping as well. I have installed but not used any of the logitech software as I program the macros from the games.
  • Pros: Logitech makes good mice and this one is no different. Looks good and all advertised functions work well. I like how my thumb rest on the mouse and most of my hand as well. The two thumb buttons are easy to tell apart and reach. The on the fly tracking changer works very well once you get use to ...
  • Cons: Two things I would want to know of are 1. the mouse wheel does not have the left or right tilt function so you lose two buttons for game play right there. 2. On my prevous mouse there was a place for my ring and pinky finger to rest. On this mouse there is nothing and they drag from about the mid...

Solid Mouse

Samuel H., Newegg
16 June 2011
  • Summary: This thing is cheap! Its on clearance at many places and of course, this site has a similar great deal. Anyone looking to pick up or replace a mouse for gaming purposes would be more than happy with this deal.
  • Pros: This replaced a precision Razer Deathadder, which is an overall more advanced device that had to go when the mouse wheel quit working as it should. Overall, I prefer this one. The contours are more natural and the forward/back buttons on the left side are positioned so you can press them when you...
  • Cons: Some of the minor downsides: The mouse wheel is on the small side and sits in a depression, so if you have larger hands, it can be somewhat of a pain. Also, the wheel scrolling feels a bit rough. Some LED lights would also have been nice, as my Deathadder looked pretty sick with the sleek black b...
