5 out of 5 eggs6 Years, Still Going Strong

Pros: Functionally, this mouse is pretty much perfect. The tilt and scroll wheel works, the two buttons to raise and lower the sensitivity still work (although I never use them personally), the mouse is just as precise as the day I bought it.

The side button 'mouse4' maps pretty well in every game I need it to. When I want to bind something to a key I push the button and it works just like binding it to anything else. I've never had a problem with any program ever not recognizing that button.

Cons: There is only one button for the thumb. It's all I really need, even as a gamer, but my previous mouse had 2, and if done well so it's easy to push which button you want, more buttons are better. However, if there's only one button then it sure is easy to push when you need it!

Sometimes when I drop the mouse the little weight card inside slips out. I had to put in maximum weight in order for the mouse to feel 'right' to me, and even then I might've wanted it heavier if I could. This (and the resolution changer) seem like unnecessary options that I haven't used in over 6 years when more thumb buttons would have been actually useful.

Other Thoughts: Logitech knows how to make mice that last, that's for sure.

The cord of my mouse hangs over the edge of the table. Where this happens, the cord has basically been chewed through from the friction over that corner. The padded lining is completely severed, and the black plastic liner is also cracked there so the copper cords are now only protected by the clear plastic lining inside. Once friction cuts through that and starts actually interfering with the copper it might be time to get a new mouse, lol. But even with the cord looking like it's been chewed through it still works 100% without a hitch.

Also, over 6 years the accumulation of hand-gunk that builds up on the mouse can be pretty funky. When I scrape or chip it off, the cool paint job finish that it came with typically chips off right along with the gunk.

Basically, this is now the ugliest looking mouse I've ever owned, lol. But still 100% functional. This thing must have over 30 THOUSAND hours of use and it's still ticking!

3 out of 5 eggsNot what I expected

Pros: Other than the weight and resolution configuration, did not have much else.

Cons: Not durable, buttons stuck and never could use it again after a bit over a year of usage. Not what I expected for such pricing.

5 out of 5 eggsLogitech Wins

Pros: This mouse has lasted six years through rigors of work and play. Used this for CAD work (can't live without tilt wheel) and for games. Replacing with a newer logitech wired mouse of like make from another e-tailer (newegg was beat on price, which rarely happens)

Cons: tilt and scroll went on the mouse at six years; which is roughly double the warranty period. more than i normally like to pay for a mouse, but worth the cost

Other Thoughts: I have been buying logitech products for 20+ years, and they keep getting better.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best of the best

Pros: Natural feel in hand, adjustable mouse weight and of course on the fly adjustable DPI sensitivity.

Great mouse, too bad Newegg doesn't carry them no more, but i will buy it again, even if not from Newegg.

Cons: Eventually it broke :((

Other Thoughts: Had this mouse since 2006, maybe even '05. Used it mostly for multiplayer gaming. Its now January 2011 and it finally broke, the wire was rubbing on the edge of my table and eventually got cut through. I bet if i fix the wire, the mouse will work for another 5 years easy.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Mouse one of the best I have ever owned and great for gaming and working in Photoshop. Also the cord does not get tangled or snagged in the back of my system

Cons: I wish I that there were heavier weights included, after a while the mouse starts to feel light in your hands

Other Thoughts: I've had this mouse for about 8 months and the left-click is starting to stick. But then I work and play with mouse all the time so I'll have to order another 1 soon

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice, but could be better

Pros: DPI toggle helpful for sniping, weighting could be good for perfecting technique, braided cable seems to not catch things as easily.

Cons: I just don't like the tactile feel of the mouse. An old cheap MS optical can sometimes have a better feel. Also, the Plus/Minus DPI are hard to reach quickly, accurately, and reliably in a tense gaming situation.

Other Thoughts: I'll use it, but I'm not going to claim it's the best mouse ever.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: fits my hands perfectly and is extremely comfortable to use for long periods of time. i use the tilt wheel/dpi switch buttons/thumb button all the time for both gaming and internet browsing. the cord doesn't tangle due to the nylon coating. mouse comes with a cartridge that can hold up to 9 weights and slides into the bottom easily and a case with 9 4.5 gram weights and 9 1.7 gram weights to customize your weight to whatever you feel is right. VERY smooth tracking has made gaming much better.

Cons: software drivers don't work with vista, haven't checked online for vista drivers for it yet.

Other Thoughts: arrived quickly, packaged well, would recommend to anyone wanting a good quality gaming mouse.

3 out of 5 eggsgood mouse, bad cord

Pros: nice feel to the mouse, grips your hand well using wither your fingers or your whole palm. the buttons to change resolution on the fly are very handy and it works well as a mouse

Cons: why i gave it a 3 is the cord and middle button on this mouse. the cord is braided, which means it catches on any corner of anything and frays. it doesn't look good and leaves fibers all over the desk. the braided cord is also very stiff and not flexible for movement. the middle button, when pressed, has a tendency to go side to side, instead of straight down. the paint also wears off very quickly.

Other Thoughts: i would defiantly try and buy a different mouse, one without the braided cord. it is no end to the frustration with it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Not much of a difference from MX518. I bought it just right before the 7-button version came out, so i don't have the forward button. Can graduate the weight of it and its very light itself. I never use the medium speed and the slow speed.

Cons: Hate to have the 6-button one
