Fantastic mouse, super durable
26 October 2014
Summary: This mouse has served as my primary mouse since probably around 2008, withstanding over half a decade of the strains of gaming. I recommended it to a few friends shortly before it started going out of stock, all of which are still in service.
Pros: Refuses to quit, relatively inexpensive, high performance, wired
Summary: I've owned my MX518 for 8 years. It is, hands down, the single greatest mouse ever made. Considering that the mouse sold for 40 dollars when it was still being manufactured, the value of that investment is staggering. Without a doubt the MX518 is the best investment I've ever made. The cost/value ratio is unparalleled. I have never been more satisfied with a purchase in my life, and that is not an exaggeration.
Summary: It has been my cricket bat, my M1911, and my semiauto shotty in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. With this MX, I have commanded the elements, torn my foes to pieces, and brought Dragons down from they sky. It has been my dagger in the night, my hidden blade, and with it I have brought countless evil men to their knees. "Requiescat en pace..." Imagine every AAA and kickass Indie game of the last few years; this MX 518 has been at my side through them all.
High quality, rugged mouse that can survive teenaged boys

Summary: I'm not a gamer but rather a gamer's grandpa. My 15 yr old grandson told me his gaming mouse had died and asked if I could get him a new one. He then e-mail me some links to various gaming mice with prices running from $75-$179. That seemed high to me for a mouse so I started doing my research on the internet and found that most reviews listed this mouse as one of the top 2 or 3 on the market, including the high-priced, sexy ones!
Summary: It says something that the MX-518 is still widely available despite being an older design than pretty much anything else currently out there (and yes, that includes the free mice Dell ships). Not to mention the fact that it's still marketed as gaming hardware, despite the fact that such products usually get updated on a yearly- if not monthly- basis.
