I've been using the new mouse for about a week and it's hard to distinguish performance-wise from a G5. But there are some differences worth mentioning.
What I Miss About the G5 -
Separate X and Y axis sensitivity settings - this feature was only available in SetPoint's Game Mode but did give me some flexibility in opening up the horizontal sensitivity for close-in sweeping without sacrificing vertical precision.
Adjustable weights - My G5 as described in my review weighs 140g; the MX518 weighs 105g. The weight module on the G5 makes the entire difference. I've noticed the difference, but have adjusted without too much trouble.
Sensitivity Indicator - Occasionally I'd lose track of the mouse sensitivity and had to look at the G5's LED indicator, which in some cases was easier than wiggling the mouse.
What I Like Better About the MX518 -
Two thumb buttons which I've set for raising and lowering sensitivity a la user.xml customization similar to what I did on my G5. Their location is still a bit high.
BTW, the SetPoint software will detect the MX518 and append user.xml with default settings for the MX518. This is cool as it allows one to switch back (or use in parallel) to a G5 without losing any customization.
The size and shape of the MX518 and G5 are identical, however my G5 had a slightly rougher texture both on its' topside and its' gripping surfaces.Read more ›
Feel is good, middle to small sized so fits most of my family. Cord is thin and a little stiff so it does not always lay completely flat (I have not found on that did). Very lightweight. Contoured nicely to fit the cupped hand.
Worked with Win XP as soon as I plugged it in, drivers and program loaded with no hassle.
Nice job, Logitech!
Buttons have a very nice tactile feel. Especially useful are the two buttons on the left side of the mouse which default to paging forward and back in your webpages. After spending any significant time with this mouse, it's hard to surf the web with any other mouse; you'll constantly be pressing the nonexistant side buttons in an effort to navigate. The forward and back action also works when browsing through files and folders, which is also very helpful.
Finally, ergonomics on this mouse are absolutely incredible, at least if you are right handed.
Do not hesitate to buy this mouse
I am still using this mouse 3 years after buying it. The buttons started sticking slightly but it still works fine. I'll be very sad when it eventually died
This MX 518 has quite possibly been my most treasured gaming accessory. I spend many hours a week in front of my PC. If I'm not playing games I'm collaborating on them, and this mouse fits comfortably in my rather large hand. That was the original selling point for me. It has hooked me even more over the time I have had it. The DPI is not as high as some other "Enthusiast" or "Fanatic" level gaming mice; but it works for me.
Every PC gamer wants a mouse that will fit them perfectly, "The diamond in the rough", if you will. The MX 518 is mine.
This is the first time I can use a mouse and never have to worry about unexpected friction or hiccups. It controls with extreme precision and ease. At first, it was a little hard for me to get used to the shape and size, since it feels different from other mice I've used...but once I got used to it, it's flawless.
I am also a pretty avid gamer, and since I got this mouse, my performance has gone up noticeably. In fact, that's the reason I got this mouse to begin with: my biggest weakness in-play was my inability to consistently click quickly on small units in battle. With the MX518, those kinds of dumb problems go away.
Another thing I love is that even if I used it for hours, my hand feels completely rested and fresh. No more taking quick hand breaks, stretching it out or what not.
It's also very easy to customize the speed and feel of the mouse using the software. I've read some complaints about it, but I can't see any way to improve it.
Coupled with my Steelpad S&S mousepad, it's so much more fun to get on the computer. Like upgrading car audio, you really don't know what you're missing until you get rid of your outdated junk and try the best.
