Excerpt: I had the Logitech MX 500 and got the MX 518 as an upgrade. The design is seemingly identical to the 500. The color scheme has changed. The biggest difference is the DPI. The MX 500 had 800 DPI, while the 518 has 1600 DPI. This results in even more precise and accurate tracking. Although I don't game too much on the computer, the bump in DPI results in a lot more enjoyable experience using the mouse. The mouse goes where you want it to go.
Excerpt: This mouse is very good. The grip is good, feels very comfy all the time. The teflon slip on the bottom is very big, so it can withstand a long time of use. The mouse clicks are clear and responsive. The movement of the mouse is very good, it is very accurate. Thanks to the old school optical unit. This and the deathadder is truely the last mouses that use optical engine, which is great, optical is definitely very good for most gamers.
Excerpt: This product really delivers what it is supposed to at a cost which is perfect. I run a computer company and use this mouse for each of my staff. More importantly we have competitive game events and this mouse held up it own against other mice with over 5 times the price tag. Some of our top gamers used this and six other mice and rated them. This mouse was the top rated in its price range. This is a great mouse for detailed artwork as well.
Logitech MX 518, what other gaming mouse do you need?
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Logitech sure got it right when they made the MX518 years ago, so much so that they are still producing it today! It is a great value even still, and with Logitech's outstanding support this gaming mouse is a no brainer. The ergonomics of the mouse are outstanding, though left handers need not apply. Because of its age, you will notice that it is missing some features of the newer, more expensive mice available now...
Excerpt: I've owned two of these mice and if/when this one breaks I will probably buy another one. The first one I owned broke during a move so it probably would have lasted several more years. I play games on a regular basis, and a pretty wide range of genres too (World of Warcraft, Battlefield, Call of Duty, Starcraft). This mouse works in all settings.
Excerpt: I have used several of these mouses over the years. I have one at my parents house and one at my college apartment. My first mouse that i got of this model had a problem with the wheel mouse not working. I requested into logitech and they sent me a new mouse without me having to send them the defective one, which was awsome. Logitech is a solid company and i have loved all of their keyboards, mouse, and webcam, and all accessories for a computer/laptop.
Excerpt: The Logitech MX518. The best selling gaming mouse ever. Regarded as the best gaming mouse ever. There is not much needed to say, but here I go. I haven been using this mouse for 5+ years now. I am on my second mouse now since my warranty expired. The mouse is ergonomic, it fits perfectly in my hand! The grooves match perfectly and the shape is great. The buttons are responsive and the placemetns of the side buttons are extremely useful.
Excerpt: I have used dozens of computer mice and was never able to just settle with one particular brand or model. About four years back, I received a Logitech MX 518 gaming mouse as a present. Ever since then, I've only used this particular model. The mouse is comfortable and great for long periods of gaming and computer use.The buttons on this mouse is programmable so you can change them to whatever function you'd like.The two thumb buttons are great for web browsing; one for...
