The Logitech MX518 is a pretty sweet mouse, I gotta say. There’s a ton of stuff to like about it For starters Its a perfectly sensitive mouse, though some might say maybe a touch TOO sensitive at its default setting. If you’re a fan of ultra sensitive mice, though, this is definitely a good one. At 1600-dpi the response time from this mouse is outstanding, for sure. That’s not to say you can’t change this up quickly with the MX518’s quick shift controls to suit your needs, though.
Shaped just right for most hand sizes, the 8 programmable buttons aren’t too stiff or too soft at all. You can change your resolutions with these buttons at the drop of a hat, in addition to flipping between programmed settings, and dpi as mentioned above.
The one gripe I have about this mouse is that it doesn’t seem to have a long lasting quality to it. Sometimes after a few months it starts to fail completely (as in, it doesn’t work at all). The most likely occurrence, though, seems to be that the tracking of the scroll wheel starts to give. It goes from great movement to needing multiple rolls before it registers that you’re scrolling it. In short, this is a great mouse for gaming, but only if you don’t mind picking a new one up every 3-4 months.
