The MX510 is a great mouse for gamers and normal PC users.

I have tried various models of the MS optical mouse and the MX510 logitech mouse is the best by far.

Optical tracking works very poorly on shiny, transparent, or translucent surfaces.

Verified Purchase
I ordered this mouse from Amazon.com last week and it arrived the day after it shipped along with another item. They just keep getting faster and faster! Now, about the product itself. I am very picky on mice and, since I've never owned a Logitech mouse of my own, was really hesitant to purchase this model. I was really spoiled by my Intellimouse Explorer optical (one of the earliest models) and wasn't looking forward to upgrading, but since the mouse was dying I had no choice. The current generation of Intellimouse Explorers weren't getting such rave reviews and I also wasn't ready to jump into wireless mice just yet, since I feel the technology there isn't advanced enough for daily gaming (though, in the case of the MX1000, I could be wrong)

After weighing this mouse (the red version, the blue was more expensive for some reason) against the MX1000, the price difference and incredible reviews won me over, so I bought the MX510. After nearly a week's worth of use, here are my impressions.

1. The MX510 is both easier to move and more accurate than my previous mouse. It moves effortlessly around the screen and my hand never gets fatigued. This mouse is not only suited for gaming, but excellent for any task that requires LOTS of mouse activity, like graphics editing for example.

2. I actually thought I would never use the two cruise control buttons, but I find them very useful. It is true that the top cruise control button is high up, and you may need to reach a bit further to get to it, but with my hands (which aren't all that large) I don't find it problematic at all.

3. The Quick Switch Program Selector is nice, but I find ALT+TAB to be faster.

Bar none, the best mouse I ever owned. We run a total Macintosh office, and even with the latest 10.3.6, this mouse and its Logitech software are flawless. I have the two best Exposé features (tile all windows, and clear screen) put to two of the buttons. In Safari, I have two other buttons for the back and forward functions. The optical laser is very smooth. I paid well over the fifty original retail for this thing, so at this price, you gotta get it.

By the way, I was using cordless mice before this (Intellimouse and the Logitech cordless). After using this, I can say that I much prefer a corded mouse, especially once they make one this smooth.

I recieved this mouse for free, near-new from a friend, as I did my Intellimouse Explorer 3.0a before that, so I think I can speak without the bias that comes along with wanting to justify/defend a given purchase. I think the MX510 has superior ergonomics (if you're right-handed, natch), particularly with the two side buttons located above the thumb rest. They are on a high ridge, compared to the Intellimouse, and are therefore much more difficult to press acidentally while surfing or playing games. The left- and right- click actions have their buttons seamlessly integrated into the top of the mouse, which is one less thing that can break in the long run. The scroll buttons on the top and bottom of the scroll wheel are nicely placed and useful, even for people with relatively small hands like myself. The MX510 also has some decent heft to it, considering that it doesn't have a tracking ball or batteries inside it. However, the mouse wheel itself is much stiffer than what I'm used to with most of the other mice I've used.

I don't recommend installing the software, however, as I've heard it's a bit glitchy and the pointer acceleration isn't very useful. Without it, you'll get still get functionality for all the but the task switching button. I never use that anyway, and it's also awkwardly placed. All in all, the MX510 tracks excellently and precisely, it just needs a smoother scroll wheel.

Having been a computer gamer and user most of my life, I've come in contact with many different mice. The mx510 is the best.
The design is the same as the mx500, mx700, and mx900 series, a somewhat tried-and-true style. The forward and back buttons (on the left side of the mouse) are close enough to use easily, but aren't in danger of being accidentally clicked. The up and down buttons (positioned above and below the scrollwheel) take some getting used to, but are useful enough to outweigh this. The up button *isn't* the most natural button, but I'm able to click it with my forefinger easily (despite reviews to the contrary), and my hands are average sized.
The switch application button seems to be the only downfall of the mouse. It isn't as easy to reach as the other buttons and its usefulness is questionable. A friend of mine with the mx700 (same design, just a little older and wireless), however, swears by that button and says he couldn't be happier that it was included. Even in the case of someone who doesn't like it, it really doesn't take away from the mouse; you'd don't have to use it if you don't want to.
Note: I would not recommend this to anyone that uses a mouse with their left hand.
The optical engine is newer and supposedly better than the older mx500s and mx700s. I, however, haven't really noticed a difference, having used an mx700 before. Despite that, it's amazingly smooth. I have heard people online and in person complain that it "jerks" or is "twitchy," but I'd venture a guess that most of those people either do not have quality mousepads or have incorrect sensitivity settings in their OS.
