Logitech MX 518

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just bought it...G5 started acting up. I play a game called Gunz and it requires a lot of fast movements/for aiming. This seems to be a lot more precise than my G5 even at the same dpi. (Optical vs laser?) Anyways. it's really comfortable..only thing I wish it has is a indicator that told you what dpi profile you're currently using.(Like the G5 does.)

some noob's opinion on laser mice. source: http://www.eve-films.com/forum/showt...Shooting-Games

You will notice a pattern with gaming mice that professionals use: almost all of them are old mice and all of them use optical sensor technology instead of laser technology. This is because new laser mice suck. Don't get caught up in the DPI marketing crap; the majority of pros play 400 at dpi. It's all you need in an FPS game. And contrary to popular belief. mouse DPI doesn't reflect accuracy. Most FPS professionals play on incredibly low sensitivities. For Counter Strike, the average distance for a 180 degree turn by a top players is between 12-16 inches. For faster games such as Quake 3, it's around 8-12 inches for a 180 degree turn by a top player. This is why big mouse pads are a necessity, and why I have included two popular mouse pads pros use at the end of this review. I have used both first hand.

Laser Mice Suck

Don't buy them. Laser sensor technology has incredibly high lift distance, and up until recently, they couldn't handle high speed movement. The newest laser sensor, which is in the Logitech G500, the Logitech G9X, and the Steel Series Xai, can handle high speed movements. However, there is one big problem with these new sensors: unfixable acceleration within the sensor itself. It is literally measurable (see pictures below). Don't buy them. They are crap. Yes, these mice have gotten good reviews by "reputable magazines and people". Those "reputable magazines and people" are not gamers, they are journalists. They can't tell the difference between acceleration and no acceleration because they are not experienced gamers. It does make a difference within your muscle memory and mastery over the game. Don't listen to them; you are wasting your money and getting a crap product if you buy any laser mouse.
