My logitech MX518 just died after five years of use. I've gone through two logitech mice and this time I picked up a 3g 1800dpi Razer Deathadder. I honestly feel both products are amazing and I would definitely recommend either of them.

In terms of the sensor, the deathadder is more accurate and has has noticeably less positive/negative acceleration noticeably more accurate and does not have mouse prediction. However the MX518's acceleration prediction problems never bothered me because they were mouse prediction WAS predictable, very slight, and easy to adjust to.

The difference in build quality is definitely overhyped. Logitech mice are made with sturdier materials but the deathadder does not feel cheap by any stretch of the imagination.

Both mice are adequate in their accuracy and build quality. Now it just all comes down to ergonomics and what feels better in your hands.

One more thing, liftoff distances for both mice are low. I actually find the deathadder with the 1.39 firmware to have a lower liftoff distance than the MX518. Hope this information helps you out buddy!

Don't forget about the new G400 (MX518 replacement). It's the one that will really be the direct competitor to the DA. Both are optical not laser, around the same price point, and both have about the same DPI. I'll be picking one up soon.

G500 is one of the most ergonomic mice. I haven't really ever get used to DA's shape... Sensor in the G500 is very good if you use a hard mouse pad.

I just replaced my Logitech G5 with a Logitech G500 and well... I hate everything about it.
I'm currently searching for another replacement.

Deathadder. I don't like being forced to have positive acceleration.

DeathAdder has by far the better sensor. Just double up on the mousefeet. Today, I just peeled off the crap Razor ones, got rid of most of the adhesive with rubbing alcohol (Razor used way more than necessary), stuck on hyperglides and then an extra set of hyperglides on top. Double hyperglides = supersmooth and lower lift off distance.

I'm using a G5 Version 2 right now. Going to a G400 soon. Looks like a decent mouse for someone who likes and is used to the Logitech palm grip design.

The 518 doesn't have acceleration. Prediction yes, but that's totally different lol

You're right, I meant prediction
