That is one thing a lot of review say, that the mx518 has lasted years for them

G500. Don't go wireless. They go on sale every once in a while for around $40.

the sticky says that the mx518 has moderate prediction that can't be turned off. that'd be the one minor thing.

other than that, it really is a great mouse if you don't mind palm grip and a little extra weight. it's definitely better than the G500 people are telling you to get.

I have a wireless mouse now that came with my logitech wave keyboard. Dislike that it uses batteries, sometimes has issues communicating with receiver (slow moving mouse), and the mouse buttons sometimes stick causing me to keep firing in games. Boo

So hopefully a wired gaming mouse will be better.

It only seems to not meet requirements of prediction and polling rate? Can you explain what these are and why they are good or bad?
post #36 of 49
it's up to you to decide whether they are good or bad.

polling rate = how many times per second the mouse sends data to the computer. 125Hz = 125 times per second or every 8ms, and 500Hz = 500 times per second or every 2ms. 1000Hz = 1000 times per second or every 1ms--the maximum rate that USB 2.0 is capable of.

as you might guess, with lower polling rates, there's more delay between mouse inputs so your cursor position will be updated less times per second. This really isn't a big deal to me because even 8ms is so little time, but you might think that it'd be worth it to have just a 2ms or 1ms delay. That's fine too.

Correction is best described by this picture. It's a little thing that all mice do (some more than others) where it tries to force straight lines or turn your circles into squares.

I've used the Logitech Revolution, and the Razer Mamba in the past. I can't speak for the MX518, but I owned the first gen G5, and currently using the second gen G500. Both are excellent mice, and I need precision, comfort, and instant responsiveness playing Starcraft 2. No complaints.

No, it's not. I got a G500, returned it, got an MX518 even though I didn't have any problems with the G500 since people kept telling me it was better, ended up returning to go back to the G500 again.

Reason why?
