Summary: I bought 3 of them back in 2005 from Logitech. I bought two of them after I wore the wires out on my 1st one. I still have one unused in the box for back-up. I never tried any others out because there wasn't a need to. Today I have tried 3 different cordless & am going back to wire.
Summary: Best *darn* mouse ever made. It's a shame they quit making them. I've had the same one for 11+ years -- wow, I didn't realize it'd been that long! It's been through innumerable Counter Strike matches, HL2, WoW, Portal, Diablo, hours and hours of Photoshop and Lightroom, web surfing, you name it,...
Pros: Best mouse I've ever owned hands down. Its simple and to the point, feels great in your hand. mouse lasted me 10 years before i needed a replacement. It still works i just felt the need for an upgrade, got the same one but updated.
Summary: Current Price... Maybe next time I'll write reviews sooner... LOL
Pros: STILL WORKS. NO issues whatsoever... I can't believe I bought this for <40 then, and see what they are going for now. Insanely accurate and durable. Clear bottom with 5 mini smooth pads. You don't need more DPI than this. Drivers still work for WIN 10 even!
Cons: Only 125 report rate. Would be nice to at least be 500. Has auto smooth/straighten when moving mouse left and right. Apparently you can flash the mouses firmware to have a higher report rate. G400s is THE perfect replacement for this. And they are going for cheaper now. I have both.
Summary: Many folks feel strongly that this is the greatest mouse of all time. If you can get one new, do so.. don't fall for Logitech's failed successors. The MX518 will reign for many years. It's well-balanced and responsive and the 'newer' versions have replaceable feet.
Pros: This thing is amazing! I've used it heavily for 5 years now, it has yet to give any problems! I purchased it to replace a dead MX 500 which was also a great mouse as well. The Logitec logo has worn, but this thing is still going strong!
