Summary: This otherwise fantastic mouse has a serious flaw: the rubber mouse wheel turns to goo after around 12 months and became virtually unusable by month 24. Also, right out of the box the indexing notches for the mouse wheel were not very firm and before too long the wheel started slipping between...

Summary: Does not have optional weight compartment like my old sidewinder mouse, nor are the feet replaceable (that I can discern). Might be solid for a new gamer, but it's too light-weight for me. The inability to replace the feet when they wear out doesn't bode well for longevity.
Summary: The mouse works fine but to me it is too light. I wanted a x8 which has weights and is heavier but I could not afford 200.00 for that mouse. the x5 is a lot cheaper built and not worth the 110.00 I paid for it. It is more of a 49.00 class mouse. I guess you get what you pay for.
Summary: I was particularly fond of the Logitech MX518 gaming mouse, but after going through three of them in about 18-24 months of use, I thought it might be best to say goodbye to Logitech and see if I could find a more durable product.

Pros: - On-the-fly DPI settings - Cool LED lighting - Easy to install - Accurate, and built to last
Cons: - Awkward "lumpy" shape that's slightly uncomfortable to hold - Side buttons stick out like warts - Adjustable weights don't do much at all for the overall weight of the mouse - "Sidewinder" button is non customizable and only opens the Windows Games folder - Macro recorder is pretty useless, esp...
