I've been using a Microsoft basic optical mouse v2 for ages, I think anything would be an upgrade from that biggrin.gif I would get the g500 but I couldn't afford it, I only had $40 to spend smile.gif

Like I said..no everyone mind glossy parts, but alot very very hate it and its deal breaker for them, my include.

I would recommended you to save alittle more money and get the G400, since your privious mouse using the bluetrak by microsoft which have prediction also..

I would say:
if you dont mind glossy top - Mx518.
if you mind and wants more plus that better than Mx518 - go with G400.

You can always mod it if you don't like the glossy finish wink.gif

It's probably the best low cost mouse with decent dpi. You really can't go wrong with mx518. Don't bother with G5 or G500 cuz their sensors don't preform as well as the mx518.

The Logitech MX518 is a great mouse and one of my all time favorites. Mine's lasted four years and it finally died out. Here's some things to note:

- Build quality is excellent
- Teflon feet are of extremely high quality. The mouse glades smoother out of the box than many other mice.
- Perfect control, in terms of mouse accuracy occurs when moving faster than 2m/s. While this is only half that of other mice I never move that fast.
- The MX518 uses mouse prediction. If this is a problem for you the MX518 won't suit your needs. However, the mouse prediction was predictable and I used this mouse in competitive FPS.
- The mouse better suits medium sized hands. If your hands are in between small/med you may also be able to use it. I have med/large hands and it did tire me after a days use.
- It lasts forever, most of my friends have had theirs for 2-4 years.

Hope this helps dude! I'd recommend either the MX518 or the deathadder depending upon what ergonomical shape and performance characteristics you want.

Alright, will be getting the MX518 within the week. Thanks for the posts, just needed some reassurance from you guys. I dont need the ultra-high dpi of the G400 as I only game with 1200dpi max. Prediction, my mouse has that now and no problem with it at all. I just hope the 125hz (was it 250hz?) polling rate doesn't affect gaming performance at all as my current one does it at 500-1000hz.
