Thought that looked familiar. I didn't know Amazon ever did free shipping for anything under $25, so I clicked the link out of intrigue and BAM I'm treated to an image of my mouse.

I'm pretty sure I paid more for this way back when, but I've been using this mouse for over a year now and I like it. Nice weight, love the forward/back buttons on the side. I'm not a gamer, so the on-the-fly sensitivity adjustment is useless to me, but I've remapped the three extra top buttons to various different functions on my whims.

No side scroll, for those who care.

This isn't a new mouse, but it's a great one. I've been using it the last three years. It still sells at Best Buy for $50.

I have no plans to get rid of mine - the feel is just too good.

They raised the price. Ew. Still cheap though.

The deal is . . . mostly dead.

Heh, been using this mouse for ages. Glad to see it's still around. Get it!

I have this mouse on my older computer and it's been great. Already been said but the back/forward buttons on the side are really useful.

I was planning on getting it for my upcoming computer build. Appreciate the good find.

I was using this mouse pretty much since it came out, it awesome, rugged enough to get thrown around with my laptop all over, and I've never installed any of their drivers, and never had issues.

I only moved on because I could afford a expensive wireless laser gaming mouse

Great premium mouse, have been using it for a couple of years now. It works well without a mouse pad on my wooden desk. Buttons and wheel feel much nicer than my other $80 Logitech Performance MX.

for what it's worth, I've got one, and it's been great for the three years I've been using it - my one gripe is that the increase and decrease resolution buttons are easier to tap by accident. but it's one of the best models for that price range, in my opinion.

I have had this mouse and the mx510 for a good four years now. I also have a g5 that I tried for a little while, but honestly the mx518 is the better mouse. If they rereleased the mx518 with the teflon feet and weight cartridges from the g5 (and up) it would be perfect. Don't bother with the g500, the side buttons are awful.

If one isn't aware, Logitech updated this mouse a while back with an updated engine bumping it's 1600 DPI to 1800 DPI.

Even with the new engine, the common complaint is the same is that sometimes the mouse seems to cut in and out. If you open it up, it's a flaw with the design of the way the cord exits the mouse itself.

You can easily resolder the wire inside if it's damaged.
To prevent damage, you can tape the wire to your desk with some clear tape and some slack so the cord isn't constantly being tugged on over the edge of the desk.

theres nothing wrong with the way this mouse is built. You sir must have not taken care of it.

I've owned this mouse for over 4 years. I've used plenty of mice, Including the G5, mx510, a few microsoft mice, the ultimate 150$ wireless set from logitech, and a few razors. This is still the best.

I do competative gaming at LAN tournaments, and online leagues, and majority the good players STILL! use this as well. As long as you like how it holds in your hand your good to go. It beats those lazer mice by a mile, It picks up much more, as the lazer ones sometime skip if your mouse isnt on the right surface, or you move it to fast even.

Opitcal is the way to go for FPS games in my opinion.

I'm also an IT tech for a major company, would recommond this mouse to all users. I bought mine refurbished for 25$ 4 years ago and it's still working great, no complains.

Simply the best mouse for FPS, gaming. Enough said. Reviews show it as well.

I have had this mouse for nearly 5 years (bought it then for $70. I will still tell you that this was the best $70 bucks I have ever spent. a few month ago i wanted to upgrade so I made the mistake of coughing out nearly $90 for a Cooler master sentinel advance gaming mouse and even though it had all the extra stuff it still was not near the mx518 in quality. if you are looking for a sweet gaming mouse, you cant go wrong with this one.
I play mostly fps 3-7 hours daily so you know this mouse had weeks if not month of use

I've had two of these over a 5 year period and I can't recommend them enough. Along with the great features of the mouse what stands out the most to me is the deesign. There are contours around where your thumb and pinky grip that make it super comfortable to use.
