Consumer Review - Logitech MX518 Gaming Mouse Rating
The Logitech MX518 is a budget gamer's dream. At a very affordable price, anywhere from $45-$55 depending on where you buy, this sleek and small mouse is a steal. I used it to replace my Razer Deathadder since my dog decided to gnaw straight through the wire, luckily the PC was off, and it has exceeded my expectations. I actually prefer it to the Razer product as it is more comfortable and seems to just fit my hand perfectly. If you have large hands, the MX518 may be a bit on the small side for you, but if you have small hands it really does fit nicely. On the fly sensitivity adjustment buttons make for a nice addition, and they can even be customized with the software provided by Logitech included in the package. You can essentially set the DPI preset per each time you push one of the buttons. One click could be 800 DPI, the next 1200 DPI, etc... There are also two side buttons right above where your thumb sits, which are fully programmable and perfect for mapping macros or other commands to.
The MX518 comes with a maximum DPI of 1800, along with 8 total programmable buttons. It is extremely comfortable to use even for extended periods of gaming. I have spent many 4-5 hour sessions using this mouse without ever feeling discomfort in my hand. It looks good, it feels great, and it performs perfect. The price is right and so are you for purchasing it!
