I want to treat myself to a gaming mouse. Was considering the Logitech MX518. Any comments or recommendations

I love my 518.

If you can find the newer G5 with the 2 thumb buttons though, thats probably even better. :)

I have a Copperhead right now, I love the feel of the mouse but the aspect that the rubber wears off after lots of use... I have to finger marks on mine now...

I still have and love my MX1000 Laser Mouse. 2.5 years old and still rocking hard. :)

The forward button Logitech put on the G5 Refresh, is too soft and in my case, useless. You can't even tell if you've pushed it or not, it's like having only one side button. I want to like this mouse, everything else about it is great.

I also picked up the new revision of the Logitech G5 mouse. I spent some time with it yesterday evening and so far I think I can live with it. I'm coming from a Logitech Mouseman wheel that I've used for maybe 5 years now. My hand was conformed to that thing, so it will take time to adjust. The texture of the G5 is odd and the thumb buttons are soft touch instead of clickers. I also agree that the front thumb button is hard to use but I figured out that a slide from my index finger down the side usually finds it.

Now, I did notice that if I setup the mouse's report rate to 1000 per second that it caused the CPU to work overtime and led to higher than normal temperatures. I retested several times and finally settled on a report rate of 333 per second which cooled the CPU back down. I found this to be really weird and it may be my CPU cooling. I will be checking that this evening.

I love the G7 although my "reduce speed" button on the mouse is now becoming nonfunctional...

I have the G7, MX 510, and the newer G5. I use the G5 exclusively for gaming.

Do you notice any difference between your G5 and G7 in regard to response times?

Not really, I like the G5 because of the extra "forward" button. I'm pretty sure that logitech will come out with a modified G7 shortly.

So the only reason you prefer the G5 is because of the extra button? What about the weight system?

Yea..I like the weights, but I was used to the G7 before I bought the G5.

it's very easy to do an RMA. they will ship and tell you to throw out the old one.

I have been through every new gaming mouse out there, from the G5/G7 to the Habu, Copperhead, DeathAdder, MX Revolution, and I keep coming back to my MX1000. It's just the most solid and reliable mouse of those, and wireless to boot.
