1. It'll really enhance game play, you can change sensitivity on the fly, that means suppose if you are playing counter strike 1.6, usually pro gamers keeps low sensitivity for sniping while higher while assaulting, so when they are assaulting and want to switch to sniper they can change it by pressing the key of the mouse, thats changing sensitivity on the fly.

Using Software 

The MX518 includes a software called "SetPoint" to bind the buttons on the mouse for Windows use as explained before. The software also controls general mouse settings, and settings specific to the MX518.

Explaining DPI :-

You might wonder what is DPI?

DPI is Dots per inches, you can adjust it from 400 Dpi's to 2000 Dpi here,

so when the mouse is in 2000 Dpi and  if u move mouse only 1 inch. so the cursor will move from  left side to the ride side till the end, when its on 400 DPI u'll hv to slide the mouse almost 4-5 inches.

And the Best thing is that i own it :P :) 

I hope you like it!
