Really? It has the same sensor as the DA.

mouse is a want more than a need tongue.gif
1. What's your grip style? fingertip
2. What's your sensitivity? in the middle, i have my mx518 set to 1000dpi with default windows settings for mouse speed
3. What's your maximum budget? i dont want to spend more than $50 and even 50 seems a little pricey but i do appreciate quality
4. Do you want additional buttons? i really like the 2 side thumb buttons and the mouse wheel to also click (not sure if that is a normal default thing for all mice or not)
5. What games do you play? i mainly play fps games, only borderlands 2 right now but enjoy games like borderlands, left4dead, and occasionally call of duty on the rare occasion
6. Do you mind about prediction? not 100% sure i understand what it is and why it exists but i dont like the idea of it. i want my mouse to be really accurate to what i do, not what it thinks im going to do
7. Other relevant information:
Input anything else you want.
some examples: i have been using the mx518 since it came out so i have not had any experience with many other mice for a long time. i do want a wired mouse so i dont have to worry about batteries while im working on something important. i do a lot of video and photo editing so i just want a mouse that feels nice to use and feels like its very precise while using it. im really open to just about anything and have no preferences on brand other than i want something that is nice quality, precise, and feels great to use which i think is the basics for everyone's desire in a mouse tongue.gif im mainly looking for something new so i really dont want to buy another mx518 again, i dislike the logitech logo that was in it as it is totally worn out on my mouse and you cant even tell what it use to be because its now a worn out grey circle on the back of my mouse that looks like its been sanded down lol.
edit: also that feature where when you lift the mouse up and the cursor doesnt move. that would be awesome. i saw it mentioned somewhere and when i tested it on my mx518 which i already knew about but yea my cursor jumps around all over the place when i lift the mouse up. i would like to not have that problem anymore tongue.gif
I would suggest the Logitech G400. tongue.gif

If you want low LOD and a mouse like the MX518, then you could go for the Zowie EC1 Evo.

i dont see any difference between the G400 and mx518 doesnt look like any improvement at all. other than higher dpi it looks like a re-branded mx518 from the specs on newegg lol

No prediction, better feet than some of the mx518s, and a lighter cord. It's a bit of an upgrade on the mx518, but it is still pretty much the same mouse.

Down grade on an internal matter. ID is the same with a different coating.
post #496 of 6260
what else is out there in the $50 under range that is of the same quality as the mx518?

are the razr mice actually any good? seems like everyone is going crazy over razr, steelseries, and a few other companies that i guess are now on the mouse market lol. im way behind redface.gif

Razer makes mice with pretty poor build qualities. The only mouse with a good sensor is the Deathadder, and possibly the Abyssus.
Zowie makes good mice; I've heard good things about the EC Evo series and the AM series. Those two series have good sensors with low LOD.
Logitech makes the G400.
Steelseries loves the A9500/A9800 sensor, so don't bother with them.
Cooler master makes the storm spawn, which I have heard mixed reviews about.
Roccat makes a wide range of mice. The one most people recommend is the Savu, which has a good sensor in it.

So witch setup should I choose?
1) Logitech G700
2) Logitech G500 + Xbox 360 controller

I need one for laptop gaming (Retina Macbook Pro)

sounds like Logitech is the way to go still biggrin.gif

how is the G500? is it any good? i remember it coming out a while ago or would the G400 still be a better update to a mx518? i doubt i would ever use the highest DPI setting but i would see myself using the lower DPI setting for precise stuff like photo editing? the only difference i see is the G500 having a minimum DPI of 200 and the G400 has 400, also laser versus optical which i have not been able to find any definite answer on which is better assuming they are equally good

Razer isn't bad on an internal matter. A lot of their ID could use improvement, though the taipan and Oroboros is on a different level from the rest of the line.

I'm not a fan of Zowies hardware choices. I'm sure they'll make changes one way or another down the line. I think theres quite a bit of irony when discussing competing products. I didn't find the ID to be anything phenomenal.

G400 is a cheap mouse ^^ Prob the lowest cost production compared to competitors products in the same ballpark. Logitech can do this though. Pretty big and offer good support.

It's not that Steelseries loves those sensors, but rather what "sells" in a consumer market.

Spawn is a good mouse for a low price. Firmware/hardware needs a little adjusting, but im nitpicking. Competitors offer simular performance.

Savu is Prob my favorite mouse in terms of tracking fidelity. IPS tracking speed is iffy on some pads (not good for low sens arm based movement, but fine for normal wrist). I think thier ID is a little over exaggerated, but it sells.
