This review is from: Logitech M705 Black 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Laser Marathon Mouse
Pros: Batterly life is as long as advertised
Cons: The mouse is completely inaccurate. Due to the off-center sensor, accuracy is completely impossible with this mouse, and I have never felt a mouse feel so completely wrong. Because of this, everything I try to do with this mouse feels extremely frustrating and I immediately went out and bought a new mouse. That mouse was another logitech and it's also pretty horrible with double-click issues on single click so I went back to this one, only to remember why I hated this so much. I've been using logitech mice for over 15 years, and they just permanently lost a customer.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Logitech MX 518 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 1800 dpi Gaming Mouse
Pros: The Logitech MX518 is my go-to mouse for precision and gaming, and despite having bought several "upgrades" over the years, they always get relegated to work or laptop use because they don't compare to this. Not only is this the best mouse I've ever used, but it may be the best mouse I'll ever use. Logitech seems to agree, as they haven't had a serious upgrade to the mouse design in around eight years.
The basic mouse clicking and wheel is extremely well done and highly resilient. The silicon pads are a vast improvement to the feet of the past which always fell off and degraded performance. The right-hand grip is very comfortable and the button placement approaches perfection, akin to the Dual Shock. Accuracy is high, and very resistant to dust-buildup compared to the higher frequency "Laser" mice.
Cons: Dead skin and grease builds up remarkably quickly on this mouse, I preferred the granular finish of the MX510 where the mouse crud wasn't quite so quickly noticeable. All the usual problem of cords are present, and we've reached a time where cordless mouse are simply superior.
To be honest, I almost never use the sensitivity controls. I run on a pretty high sensitivity natively and have excellent control, and I've been a convert to giant gaming mouse pads for years, so most of the issues raised that might possibly require a sensitivity change are moot compared to the advantage of your brain intimately linking mouse cursor movement and hand movement.
Logitech's software bundle gets closer to bloatware with every iteration.
