Mine has been in service for 2+ years now. There was a layer of rubber or something that has pealed off since... or hasn't completely pealed, but its almost there. Pinky part is faded andd I got skates for the feet. Otherwise, I love this thing.

EDIT:
I contemplated a few times using it at work because the HP standard optical is crap.

Wow! 6 years huh? That gives me hope! I've had mine for a little over 3 years now. Originally got it with my laptop, and toted it back and forth to work with me. When I finally upgraded my desktop and made the laptop envious, I kept it for my home use. The only real signs of wear and tear are some shiny spots where my fingers have worn the surface down, and some of the black has come off of the logo where my palm rests.

Absolutely wonderful mouse!

Same here, 3 years and no problems what so ever on my side, this is the "First Generation" MX518

Edit:

Nevermind, it's 4 years old, ever since I got my laptop

4 years here, the wheel is a bit touchy now scrolling up/down, sometimes i simply touch it and it will move up/down without me actually scrolling the wheel. Kind of annoying but I can deal with it. I plan on picking up a G500 for xmas
